First of all, let me say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that has been sending me positive vibes and comments about the blog. I love hearing that you feel inspired to try something new or just get crafty.This has been so much fun to share and as much as I may be inspiring you all, it has been a HUGE inspiration for myself! I really want to expand and try new things...just to be able to share. So thank you!
And...Wow, the blue dresser post got a lot of notice! I seriously LOVE that thing! I adore the blue color and the stripes are really fun to experiment with. The other thing that was noticed was the table decor. So funny because I was just trying to throw something on the dresser to make it a little "pretty" but you all noticed! Here it is again, just so you remember!
I just did the post about the family sign, but other people have asked where I got the decorations! Here it goes... :)
The candlestick, glass dome, and the white milk bottle were all Goodwill treasures. Total $4! Are you starting to get persuaded into checking it out?
The white little plant holder and fake (although I must say it is the most "realistic" fake I have seen) plant came from Ikea...
another one of my FAV's!
The little birds came from Michaels. I thought they would be cute for the spring.
And then the two tier stand....well that was something I put together. SO EASY!!! so of course, I have to share!
I really love cake stands! I have my eyes on MANY right now but haven't bought them yet just because I can't decide which ones I want. Lots of different ideas of how to use them between entertaining or just setting them out for decorative accents. So, I decided to make a "decorative" version. I can't take a ton of credit for it except that I did put it together, but the idea came from pinterest.
I headed out to Michaels for the supplies. Here is what I got:
2 different size Planter Plates (see photos)
2 different size TINY Plant Pots
and spray paint.
Total Cost $10
Put a little glue on the edge of the Plant Pots...
Place it right in the center of the Plant Plates...
And then add some Spray Paint....and here it is....all finished! About 2 minutes of work :) :)
Ok, mine took a few more minutes...I first spray painted it silver, then blue (then I decided to paint the table blue), so finally I sprayed it Oil Rubbed Bronze. (insert a few eyerolls from Jimmy as he watched the paint colors change! )
So that's it! The decorations on the table TOTALED about $20 all together...
Glad you liked it. Now I think a new fabric for a table runner may be in the works....
