Home Decor πŸ’‘πŸ”¨

I have been on Pinterest looking at so many home decor ideas and pinning them to my boards to only sit there. I know a lot of us do this, I wish I could have someone come over bring the stuff I need and decorate for me lol. Not to mention pay for it as well. (Just kidding) unless u are giving me a huge gift and have money to share lol. 

It is slowly coming together a few months ago I convinced hubby to go with me to get a leather sofa but we decided on the durablend leather material instead because of the dogs nails. A fact I didn’t know is that real leather scratches, not to mention the price of real leather is extremely expensive and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the sofa. 

I ended up finding a sofa at gardiners furniture store. I am so glad I went to see 50 shades of gray that day with friends and one of their friends said go next door and look they have great furniture all price ranges and that is where I found my sofa. Plus it was on sale and no taxes eithe who could beat that but now I am kicking myself because I didn’t get the chair and would like to have the chair but do not want to drive far to the warehouse and delivery is $80. 

Anyways I have been buying a few small items when I see them to add to the decor in the living room which I decided will be hints of teals and oranges. My favorite color is purple but I must say I love teal a lot too. 

I had seen a lot of people using books as decor on their coffee tables and wanted to see if I could find some in teals and oranges and I finally did and they look so cute I just love them. 

Here is a pic  

Here is a pic of the pillow I added to my sofa and also the blanket I made for the sofa in the colors I needed. 

   

 

I am sure I will be writing a update on my living room decor soon again with my new additions. I almost forgot I ordered this from etsy to hang on my wall as well. 

  I had the etsy shop owner add a little more teal to the middle flower to give me a little more teal.

Painting Home Decor πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨

I have had a hard time finding items that will look good in my living room. I decided to get a new durablend/ leather sofa and it is great if u own a dog. I have a beagle who sheds a lot. 

I decided to take coupons I had at ac moore and purchase the canvas squares so that I could paint my own home decor and also picked up the paint colors I wanted while we were there. 

I pointed the squares in teal and started from that point I like one for sure but the other two could use some work I think so I may go to Joann fabrics to get some fabric and cover up the ones I didn’t like. 

Here is some pictures of my work 

   

       

Bathroom Improvements πŸ‘πŸ”¨πŸ”¨

If u haven’t seen my other post about the tile that I added to my shower in my upstairs bathroom you will have to check it out. I had left over tile from that project and was just a little short on tile but all I had to do was buy one tile for $4 at Home Depot.
I decided since I had leftovers of tile that I put it to good use. A few years ago we had to replace the bathroom vanity and when we did Hubby decided to change the vanity to a taller one which meant we needed to create a shelf to attach to the wall and the bathroom vanity top.
So since then I had always wanted to put something on the shelf like sea glass or tile etc so when I had left over from my shower project it was time to lay a few pieces down and see how it looked and it looked great.

The photos above are the before pics of the bathroom and shelf. When we initially started this bathroom remodel hubby told me my idea of tile or sea glass wouldn’t work. I think he was just being lazy and didn’t want me to put him to work lol. As a quick fix he went and got this silver type of paper that we could place on the wood shelf to make it look better, and it has held up but I always had in the back of my mind the ideas I had for the shelf so after i seen how easy it was to install the tile in the shower it was obvious that I was going to make my dream come true and tile the shelf.
Hubby didn’t even know I tiled it cause I did it within a few min while he was at softball.
We are so happy with how it turned out and now I know if I can and have the tools to do the project myself lol. I am sure hubby doesn’t mind since he works hard and doesn’t want to come home to construction ideas I came up with or seen on Pinterest. Posted below are pics of the process prior to placing the tile u can see blue paint that’s because we tried painting the shelf at first but it didn’t work out well.

The pictures below are the process of placing the tile down to the shelf with adhesive and grouting.

I think my bathroom project turned out and gave it the last touch I needed and had been dreaming about for years now.

Photo shoot ideas for babiesπŸ“·πŸ“·

A co-worker just had a little baby boy and I am so excited to take some pictures of him since I am trying out different styles on my camera and on the photo editing software. It has been fun using the free software I have read about online.

I have several photography props to use on the photo shoot and just came across my large rubber duck photo prop that I will take with me on sat when I take some pictures of he baby.

I have been on Pinterest looking at ideas and I am sorry that I don’t have the names of the photographers who took these pics and I didn’t not take these pictures but I am using their ideas as my inspiration.

20130626-224454.jpg

20130626-224502.jpg

20130626-224521.jpg
I figured that the picture above would be a cute idea since the babies dad works for the post office. What do u think? If mail bags weren’t so dirty with germs and who knows what else I would use the mail bag in the photo and put baby in that but that isn’t going to happen with dirty items.
I am still on Pinterest looking for more ideas but please feel free to give me more ideas u may have for the photo shoot I have on sat. Remember his dad is a mail man!

Remember I don’t remember where I got these pictures cause I was on so many websites so if u know where this image came from email me and I will give them credit. Thanks

More inspiration pics of photos I want to take soon with some clients
