First of all, I am sorry I haven't been blogging like my usual self. I haven't done many projects around our house because life has been so busy, and let's face it...projects take money! (We've been saving for vacation!) I keep having to tell myself I would rather have a fun a relaxing vacation than have new accesories for the house or clothes :)
Anyway, here are a few things I have been itching to do around our house. I figure blogging about it will make me feel better. Plus, it can organize my thoughts and maybe, just maybe one of you will know an inexpensive way for me to get some of these checked off my list!
1.) Rug for Dining Room - Our dining room has needed a little something to pull everything together. I saw this project over at Little Green Notebook via Miss Miggy stayed Home.
Miggy took this basic rug from Ikea...
and did this...
and turned it into this!!
What a smart way to make something work for you! On a budget! She only spent $36 :)
This is definitely something I am putting on the list to try!
2.) Sillouettes OR Initials above our Mud Room - I have this blank space above our mudroom mirror. I can't decide between making some sillouettes of Matt and I and framing them OR getting a "M" and a "B" and spraypainting them. Hobby Lobby always has them half off and they are the perfect size. So it would be a total of $10 for either choice.
3.) Moss Covered Initials - I would Love to put these initials... (in "M" and "B" of course!)
over this mirror!
5.) Bottles hanging from Kitchen Window - ok, how cute would this be??
