Now that the project room is finished (well, kind of), it is time for my first project. One thing I have been wanting to do for a long time is to figure out to use my Silhouette Cameo machine. The Silhouette was a wonderful Christmas present from my husband and I just hadn’t blocked out the time to figure out what to make and how to make it. The time is finally here.
A few years back I saw a photo in a magazine of a headboard made from an old door. I loved it and knew some day I would make one for our master bedroom.
I had been scouring a few stores, Craigslist and a few online sites for two rod iron chairs for the back patio. The other day I was looking at Facebook and a link popped up for Facebook Marketplace. So I decided to try my luck. Sure enough, someone had posted a love seat and chair in black rod iron just nine minutes before. The good news? The cost was $75. The bad news? They were about 90 minutes away. Each. Way.
When my older sister was planning her wedding a few summers ago, I told her I wanted to host her Rehearsal Dinner. I really wanted to make it special and I felt the best way to do that was to create the perfect setting. (Of course good food is important, but I wasn’t worried about that. Cooking for 50 is the easy part.)
The bookshelves in our family room needed a lot of help since they were way too dark. I mean the first tenant of farmhouse style is all white everything, right?
A few months back I saw riddling racks at Pottery Barn and thought they could make an adorable flower holder. But they were way too expensive. Then, a few weeks ago when I was in Waco I stopped at Kirkland’s. (I had seen on Instagram that it was a good place for home decor.) I came across an adorable riddling rack and it was on clearance for $13.00! I bought it, even though I had no idea how I would carry it all the way home to California. At least I know that when I have an idea, there’s no stopping me!
