being busy

Brian is away at drill (he's in the Marines) this weekend. When ever he's gone I go full force into the crazy. I come up with a list of things to keep me busy. One thing I've started and am way excited to show soon is two rooms and one bathroom redo. 

Here's a picture of a tree I painted for a nursery. enjoy!

Have a great weekend and do something fun!

Camping Chairs

The awesome thing about loving to make things is people knowing I love to make things. They're always looking it out for finds and freebies. like these military drums. I add a cushion on top and now they make the perfect stools. I thought they'd be good for a mancave but we'll probably use them for camping.

Fall Table

Let's talk dinner plates! Besides eating yummy seasonal foods it's a great way to add a little of the season to your meals. And if you're the kind to leave place settings out it's a great idea to change the layout to go along with the time of year. 

First thing you need to know!
If you don't like it don't go with it. Each person has their own taste. If it feels good to you it'll look good to others. If you force it and go with something you don't like other people will be able to tell no matter what their personal style is. TRUST YOUR GUT

Play around with it. Go as matchy as you want. A white plate with a neutral accent it great because it can go with ANYTHING.

Another good trick is to choose an item that could be used multiple times. for example these loveys from anchor hocking would be great for fall, Christmas, or spring depending on what other combinations you choose.
