Easter Part 2

Table 1
I can't believe how time has flown by since my last blog. Even though Easter has come and gone I still wanted share my Part 2 of DIY Easter Decor.
I went to our local florist and found a branch added some flowers to the base, some stickers for the letters and voila! My mom just gave me my Grandmas China so I was able to use it for this table.

Now this project I fell in love with the moment I saw it!

Here's my version!!! A little different but overall the same feel. I loved how it turned out. It was definetly worth the burns from my glue gun :(

Me and the hubs!!

Have a Smashing Day!!!


Easter is such a special holiday for our family so I was super excited that the hubby and I were able to host. We had a full house a total of 20 guests. It was so much fun decorating and getting ready for all the family. Hosting a large group can get pretty pricey so I got creative to cut our costs. Here are some of my projects that helped keep things classy without breaking the bank.

I headed to one of my favorite thrift stores and got 12 napkins and napkin rings. It didn't take long to wrap them in jute and attach the vintage jewel. I am really happy at how they turned out. 

The napkin rings before are the blue ones top left.

I had a lot of fun preparing for all our guests. I hope you had a great Easter celebration as well!
Stay tuned more Easter decor to come.

Front Door Remodel

Lately I was feeling like the front of our house needed an update. I saw a beautiful yellow door on Pinterest and  knew immediately that was the color. So after a little research, I went for it. I decided not to take the door off (because that would be way to much work :) I taped around the handle, cleaned the door, sanded the nicks and started priming. It was much easier than I thought.




Turned out good don't you think!!? I am so happy with it. I didn't even obsess about what yellow I wanted. I walked in and picked it out immediately. It's a good feeling when you like a project right away you don't have crafters remorse :)
Do you have any painting tips to share?

Happy Crafting
