DIY Done Easy

Our churches Women's Retreat is coming up in October which I'm super excited about!!! We are heading up to Incline Village on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. This year there will be more giveaways for the ladies, because who doesn't like to win something...right :)!? I thought I would share a little of the DIY side of the giveaways.

DIY Giveaway 1: Chalkboard signs!! So easy to make, purchase silver trays from Dollar Tree or thrift store paint with chalkboard paint and add some ribbon. 

DIY 2: Reclaimed Wood Centerpieces. My hubby cut these to size and they will be used to hold our floral centerpieces, we're thinking mums, which will be raffled off on the last day :) 

Thanks for the reclaimed wood Cori!! 

DIY Giveaway 3: Reclaimed Wood Art

Jewelry/Accessory Sale: We have asked anyone who wants to donate their jewelry, hats, scarves, purses anything that is an accessory for a fundraiser helping the women's ministry. We have been pricing and getting things ready for them to purchase while we are at retreat.

It's going to be a wonderful weekend full of amazing women.
I can't wait to share how everything goes.

New Table

A few weeks ago we went and picked up our new coffee table!!! Well it's new to us but it's actually made from all recycled/repurposed wood. A friend of ours is making a variety of furniture and we were lucky enough to get our order in before he had a waiting list...and he does!!!

I was able to tell him the exact size, color and storage needs we wanted and he made all of them happen. 
Before we had an ottoman that came with our couch, blaah. I couldn't be happier with our new furniture addition!! 
Thanks James :)

Have a great day!!
