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.

Diy spray paint or dye furniture 💜💙🔨

I need to see if rit makes a color to dye a section of my sofa that has faded due to the sun. I love keeping my curtains open but with that comes a price to pay my sofa lost the red color and is white. So looking on Pinterest I found some cheap ways to extend the life of my sofa.
Here is a pick of the side facing my patio doors.

So here are a few pics that I got from Pinterest and the rit website of others that have used the dye since my sofa isn’t a slip cover I have to dab it and since we won’t be sitting on that side I painted it shouldn’t have to be rinsed off but we will see how it goes. I stopped at joann fabrics and picked up two colors I thought would match going to wait to get my husbands thoughts on which will match the best.

You can’t tell by the pics which one will match the best but cherry red is a little darker color so need more peoples input but if no one will be able to see it really I guess it won’t matter much since it is still by the window.

Diy outdoor furniture 🔨

I wish I had a bigger deck and could build one of these cool benches. I found these on Pinterest. Not sure which websites they came from to give credit to the website or photographer.
These are such cute additions to any deck and easy to do according to the blogs.

I am not sure if it is just me that has noticed this pattern or if anyone else has also seen a pattern at goodwill and local thrift stores. I swear there is a team on employees that must monitor blogs and Pinterest to see what the hottest trends and styles are because I have noticed several items going up in price. Has anyone else seen prices going up on certain items?

Love note board❤️❤️

Love Note Board

Maggie May's

I recently saw this adorable idea on The DIY Wannabe’s blog page. I loved the concept of it and it seemed like a fun way to share little love notes. I wanted to share my version.

All you need is a picture frame. I found this old frame for $4.00.

Make a Love Note Board

I wanted one that was kind of big so it wouldn’t look awkward on the wall. I just removed the print and the glass and painted the frame white.

paint frame

In place of the print (or if your frame is new), just line the back with pretty paper, gift wrap, fabric, or decorative tissue paper like I used. Glue a cut out of a typed “I love you because” toward the top.

Make a Love Note Board

Put the backing and glass back into the frame and hang on the wall.

All you need are some white board markers and an eraser.

Knife-block redo and barstool upcycle

Upcycled knife block and More

Crafty Madre

ImageImage

My wife suggested I paint our knife-block but I hesitated for a bit because it came with a expensive knife set from SharpenedKnife that my parents gave me. But you can’t win if you don’t play, right?  And she found this cool example and sent me the Pin, so I couldn’t resist.

And the first picture is an awesome bar stool turned (literally) into wrapping paper storage. We got the idea from Pinterest (where else?) and then the wife happened across a somewhat broken stool at a huge tag sale to benefit a local animal shelter. I promised to make the stool into a wrapping paper caddy if she promised not to bring home another dog. Here’s the inspiration for the stool:

I tried out Crackle for the first time on both of these.  It was actually kind of a ruse for the wife’s benefit. She’s much more…
