I decided the dress form in my craft room really needed a dress for our party. Ha. I know, it sounds a bit ridiculous but I figured, why not! For months she has been wearing an apron I made with a Magnolia Embroidered patch and my embroidery machine… I knew it was time for something big. Something like a fresh tree skirt for the Holidays.
Oh my gosh. You know when you have an idea in your head for a DIY, but you are afraid that it might not work? I have been so nervous about my DIY because I found two perfect items that I truly believed would make a perfect coffee table. Fortunately, the idea became reality.
Today I’m sharing with you a MIY Project with Old Barn Milk Paint.
If you’re here from Little By Little Farmhouse’s blog (or anyone else in our blog hop), then welcome! Today I’ve teamed up with 13 incredibly talented ladies to bring you a set of Christmas inspired DIY’s right in time for the holidays. You are going to love everyone’s creativity and something tells me you’re going to stop what you’re doing and gather the supplies to make some of these DIY’s yourself!
In addition to showcasing all of their wonderful talents, we’ve also teamed up to offer a $150 Amazon gift card giveaway! So make sure to read until the end to find out how to enter.
Now onto the DIY…
Every once in awhile I will see something on Instagram or Pinterest that just stops me in my tracks. When I saw the ladder chandelier that @lizmariegalvin put above her dining room table I was blown away. It was brilliant.
When I was going through my “Oh my gosh, I don’t have any fall décor” crisis a few weeks ago, I got a little carried away when ordering pumpkins online. I also hadn’t selected my color scheme, which was a really dumb thing to do before ordering a bunch of pumpkins.
When I teach my painting workshops, each of my students gets an apron embroidered with their name on it. I used to spend $12 on each apron to have them embroidered. Since I taught 12 – 14 workshops a year, I finally figured out that it would be much cheaper if I embroidered them myself.
I just realized I should probably do a new blog post on collecting chalkboards. If you walk around my house I think you would be shocked to see how many I have hanging on my walls. Technically I think I have another collection … chalkboards (you can see when I’ve posted about them here, here and here). Big surprise.
The problem is … what do I put on them? I love writing funny things and messages but I don’t love my handwriting. Fortunately, I came up with a solution.
