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.
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.)
After shopping everywhere for pillows, I decided to make my own. I wasn’t happy with the fabric selection of the ready-made pillows and the prices were crazy (ranging from $35 – $90). After a quick trip to the Ventura flea market, the fabric store (Joann’s) and IKEA (for down pillow inserts) I was all set.
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!
