In Love With Wreaths

I don't know if I have told you or not, but I am OBSESSED with Pinterest! I am always searching for recipes or crafts to try out and I recently came across this picture of a wreath:

Isn't it pretty?! I love it and I decided to make one for myself. Mine is a little different, but here it is:

Instead of the house number, I decided to go with the letter "S" for our last name. I love it! I had so much fun, I'm already planning on making a fall & Christmas one! And I will definitely post pictures of those ;)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Kitchen Towels Make Great Throw Pillows!

I was at Tar-jay {Target} the other day when I came across a set of 2 kitchen towels that were on clearance for $1.38. They had some in a fun yellow pattern and a pretty blue-ish pattern. I wasn't going to use them as towels, but I wanted to take them home and come up with something to do with them. And I figured it out fast! I was going to make them into throw pillows!!

Here are the "before-I-sewed-them-but-after-I-cut-them-in-half" shots:

I'm loving the blue ones more but I thought the yellow would add some cheerfulness :)

So anyways, I sewed them right sides together, stuffed them with Fiber-fill & sewed them shut! I have two more to do {one of each} but I ran out of Fiber-fill. So here they are:

We're going to paint our room a light gray color & there will be lots of white. I think these pillows would add fun pops of color.

From Palate to Coffee Table

I have been super addicted to Pinterest lately. I can't pull myself away from it! I love all the recipes, the fashion boards, the DIY projects, and all of the home inspiration. The other day I was scrolling through the website and I came across alot of things to do with palates.

{rustic baskets-I'd totally use these to store blankets!}

{awesome sofa bed}

{LOVE this sofa bed}

{rustic headboard}

{super cute for the fireplace}

{another sweet headboard}

{coffee tables}

I thought these were such awesome ways to get use out of palates! And you can totally find them free or at a Habitat for Humanity re-store.
I love the rustic vintage feel it gives off and after my shutter headboard project, I'm definitely going to tackle making a coffee table out of palates. Can't wait!!
