Home Decor 💡🔨

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.

Cozy Coupe re-do

Cozy Coupe Redo

I'm that Momma

Recently I was gathering a load of junk to take to my local recycle center. As I added my 4 year old daughters cozy coupe to my load she threw a fit that she wanted to keep it. It had sat on the side of my house for 2 years and was full of gunk, wet leaves, a few slugs and to my horror, a small brown snake! She was so upset that I was going to toss her car, and I didn’t want to mess with it until the snake found a new home, so I decided to keep it so my daughter and I could fix it up together. I didn’t get a before picture but after the snake was gone we took it apart and sprayed it down.

After a spray down, it was still disgusting and needed a good washing. With the help of my trusty…

Vintage Antique Finds

Who doesn’t like going to the thrift stores and goodwills. I haven’t been in a long time but now that it is getting dark later I can take some time to go get some goodies and come right home to paint them. If I go in the winter I can’t paint or create my items due to the cold and my shed is freezing lol we had a heater but it stopped working last year.

Plus the paints tend to freeze when I spray them on and it looks horrible.
So I am looking forward to summer yard sales and thrift stores shopping.’usually in the summer I add items to my shop almost daily.
Check out the current items I have in my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78
U will also want to like my Facebook page so u keep up on the latest at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl

Crafty Maps

Recycle Ideas

Where are you?  Half the time I never know where I’m going and that’s why I love maps.  This is such a great crafty idea from It’s Just Laine blog of creative ideas.  This is quite the involved project, but if you have a large wall and don’t know what to put there, this is an amazing idea to invest a weekend to make it just perfect!

Upcycled items

Marker box storage

Amy Loves Crafts

Happy Monday Everyone!

Ever have markers and random pens laying around the house that you don’t know how to store? I have had this problem for a while with random plastic cups holding markers and pencil crayons that the cats would knock off for their own enjoyment, meaning random pens and markers on the floor in the messy office.

Luckily for me, Pinterest and Aunt Peaches has solved this problem! Just needed some toilet paper rolls, a shoe box and some fun paper and I was good to go!

Marker Holder

Now all of my markers, pens and pencils are all in one place and organized! Amy loves marker box storage!

Ikea Furniture-painting

SmallChanges BigImprovements

 Put the brush down and step away from the paint.

I’m in the midst of transitioning Cormac’s room into a big boy room and this Malm dresser from Ikea is way to blah to be in any after picture of mine!!!

ikea hack- malm dresser


I could not bring myself to paint this dang thang.

I have painted Devon’s furniture (read about that here) and love the results. I wish the color were a little more white-gray than the white-blue it looks like, but I digress. (You know when I get bored enough I will repaint that shizz…)

I still mentally hug my painted hutch every time I walk into my kitchen. (Click here to pay a visit to that special girl).

I even have more painted stuff I haven’t shared on the blog yet, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do all that work for a piece of fake furniture.
