I trust you all had a fabulous weekend! I did. We went to my favorite barbecue restaurant for Mother's day, and then just spent some awesome time with my Husband and kiddos!
Today I want to share a cute, inexpensive centerpiece!
I originally saw this on Shanty 2 Chic, and I fell.in.love. I was looking for something that could roll into summer and possibly even be a summer centerpiece-I think this is it!
Sorry I didn't take tutorial pics-Whitney did a great tutorial, so hop on over there to get the exact step by step on how to make this!
* 1 1x6x6 board from Home Depot or Lowes
* 1 2x4x shortest length they have
* Wood Glue
* Mason Jars
I cut my 1x6 in half, leaving me with two 3 ft. boards
I then cut my 2x4 to 3 ft, and cut two 4" blocks off of my remaining piece of 2x4.
I used wood glue and nails to assemble the sides and blocks, and the box was done! Now I decorated the mason jar tops with jute, stuck my Dollar Tree flowers into the jars and there ya have it! A super cute, super versatile centerpiece for under $20!
And I just HAD to show off those AMAZING chairs I got at the thrift store awhile back for 9.00 a piece....LOVVVE how they turned out, and how they give more character to our table!
Today I want to share with you a lamp and lampshade redo. Remember this hideous lamp I got from the thrift store for $3.00? (#4)
Yeah, my Husband's eyes just about fell out of his head when he saw this shade. He must have thought I lost my mind. But bless his heart, he kept that to himself :) Good Husband!
Well, I sat there for a bit wondering what could be done with this beastly lampshade. And like THAT! an idea came to me.
So I ripped off the tacky lace, wiped it down with a damp washcloth and went to work........
I hot glued 847236375643786 cut out circles all around the shade!
I then finished it off with bias tape around the top and bottom; and I had a nice, COOL lookin' lampshade!
Awesome, huh?! I think so.
Oh, and see that sweet print on the wall? I borrowed the idea from my girl over at Girl In Air, and yes, it REALLY is that cheap to print it out! Mine was $2.99, and it fits PERFECT right on that wall in my guestroom. It has been a hit so far, can't wait to see what future guests think of it!
(It's not crooked, I was tilting the camera...DOH!)
Here's a close up of what the picture looks like...be still, my heart. She's just so precious :)
