Master Bath Makeover!

I’m sitting here, while Joe is working a night shift, in our HOT, un-airconditioned house on another night of dreary, MUGGY rain. Yes, at the end of July, for the second time in a MONTH, we are without air conditioning, in need of a new electrical board and now possibly new parts for the air conditioner,  AND (yes, much smaller of a deal) the kitchen light won’t turn on because the the big bulbs are out… Sometimes, being a homeowner SUCKS, but I must say, I am very thankful for a cooler than normal summer, and I am in LOVE with our most recent project in our home.

So, I am skipping ahead of the many additions, and Hubby-made projects to deflect my un-happiness to our new/updated MASTER BATHROOM! A pinterest project, that turned out better than I’d imagined, and now our GOLD, outdated bathroom, is just how I wanted! Take a peek!

Easter Wreath!

It has been a rough winter, cold and snowy for Atlanta. Two actual snowed in days during different weeks, craziness. It was rather pretty.

While I did enjoy my snow angels and snow ball fights and empty roads, the taste of warmer weather we’ve been getting the last couple of weeks has been HEAVEN! That being said, my snow many wreath…needed to go.

With Easter approaching I wanted a new fun wreath to help celebrate new life, new flowers, warm weather and Easter! So I did the usual and headed to pinterest and found this lovely tutorial! I’d take you through my process of making it, but I’m a bad blogger who didn’t remember to take photos.

I bought yarn at Joann’s, got my little plastic eggs and foam wreath and headed to work. This takes a bit of time, and can be very frustrating. There were so many times I glued/burnt my finger, the yarn started coming off, or I let out one of my annoyed hrumphs just because I looked at the number of eggs I still needed to cover… But the hubby has been working a lot of nights lately, so that left me home with not much to do sometimes. – so perfect time to sit in front of the tv and wrap eggs with yarn and glue… Take heed – when the tutorial says LOTS of glue sticks..they meant LOTS of glue sticks. My project actually got put on hold a couple nights until I was able to break away from work at lunch on day to go buy more glue sticks. But it is finished! I love it!

It is now sitting pretty on the front door, enjoying the changing of colors outside! Now…to look for a spring wreath! 🙂

New Coasters

I’m always encouraging the hubby to use coasters, but both of our picture coasters from our separate apartments were disgusting so did not make it to the new house. 

I’ve made coasters as gifts for friends in previous years and decided it was past time to make some for our home. I went to trusty pinterest and followed these instructions

Nothing like 16 cent tiles, a dig into the craft closet for unused paper and leftover felt dots from your cabinets to make a cute new home addition that doubles as a table savers ( you know from the rings from all the cups left around 🙂  )
