Easy circle pillow

I found this cute bedding for our son at Ikea.. I love it!!! I wanted to make a cute little pillow to match... so i took this pillow he got for last Easter. I wish I would have taken a picture.. I was to excited !! I took some white fabric and sewed a cover. Then I took some left over green paint from another project ( I will show you later - IT IS SOOOOO COOL!!) I used a little plastic cup to create the circles.. just dipped the rim into the paint and stamped in onto the cover. DONE!!!

Love art....

This idea came from the cutest head board at House*Tweaking!!
When I saw this idea I knew it would look perfect in our new,grey and yellow bedroom. I knew I did not want to try and paint pallet wood- I have done this before and it is a little tricky. So I searched for a pallet that already had a grey tone to it!! I found this one on the side of the road. I just ripped the pallet apart... with my husbands help. Some of those nails are not messing around.. it took some serious muscle!! I sanded the board down a little.. I didn't want to take the finish off but I didn't want to worry about splinters. Then I nailed them all together and painted the love on the front.. It was such an easy project and it makes such a huge statement.

I thought this wall art might even be cute to use in a kids room with there names instead. Or in a kitchen with the word eat, or the laundry room with the word wash &dry or something laundryish..SO MANY IDEAS!!!

Finish Pillows - Check

I had these little throw pillows that I wanted to recover for our bed..
I bought the fabric for them from Walmart.. I will go to Joannes someday and look at fabric and I am sure I will ask myself why I ever bought it from Walmart! But for now this will do :

This one is my fav!!! I just hot glued the rosette to the front of the pillow!! SO EASY!!!

I love this zebra print pillow.. I just added some lace to the front!!!

Master Bedroom RE-redo

Yep.. I know I just re did my master bedroom in green and orange.. this is a fact not lost on my husband either!! When I paint something and say I love it he says" I am going to grab my timer and see how long this one lasts!!" Thanks for the vote of faith but dangit if he isn't totally right!! Good thing he loves me so much - I remind him all the time how great I am!! :)

Don't be jealous of my high quality picture taking skills- it takes a lot of work to get your camera to take pictures on the setting I use. Here is what you do : Give your camera to your 3 year old let them drop it atleast 100 times then take it to the beach and roll it around in the sand. TA -DA - you will now have the best grainy shadowy looking pictures you could ever dream of. Yep - your welcome:)

It all started with this grey color - I could eat it if it wasn't toxic. My husband says he likes it because it reminds him of his car-reconstructing days when they would prime and paint all there cars. Should it worry me that when he saw it he said .. you did a really good job priming but what color is it going to be?

Here is our new bedding- super plain right now but It wont stay that way!! Wait until you see the funky lunky fabric I have picked out to upholster that headboard. I also have a few throw pillows that I am going to recover in some yummy yellow fabric.

Here are my wall ledge shelves.. I wipped these up all by myself!! But you can totally tell- I am good at the finishing work but not so much the building part. The fun I LOVE US printable was snagged from eighteen 25. I have another cute one ordered for the other frame.. I just have to get off my butt and go pick it up.

Our new black curtains that I got for$ 6.25 from Walmart!! I would tell you to not pay attention to the wrinked throw blanket at the end of my bed.. but I am sure you already noticed it!! My kids are convinced that my bed is a trampoline.. until I can talk them out of that idea wrinkled it will stay!!

IF this armoire could talk it would tell you " Tell this crazy lady to stop painting me!!" No lie .. I have painted it ALOT!!! I think it will stay this way .. for a little while!! The sign up on top is our wedding date!! I took pictures of random numbers and printed them out!! So fun and I am copying this idea for a wedding gift .. so I will post more about it later!!!

My spring mantel.. ish

Here is my Spring mantel- not really a mantel but it works!!
I kept it pretty simple.. I didn't want to worry about taking it all down and starting over after Easter is over so I tried to stick with decor that could stay until Spring is over.

Here are my fav little jars.. they are so fun!! I love finding cute things to fill them with!! I just shoved some easter basket grass in the bottom and a beaded egg on top and it doesn't get much easier then that!!

The subway art queens...

This is the first time I have printed subway art from eighteen 25 and I am pretty sad that I didn't catch on sooner ... look at how cute it is!!
Please don't judge the beautiful subway art because of my horrible camera.. its not her fault!!
I found my cool white frame from the D.I - I spent a whole $1.25 on it!!
