Good Morning and Welcome To our Saturday's Post - ~Make Your House A Home~
We love this post because we get to share fun things that ~Make Our House A Home~. Last week I shared our kitchen chairs and the glider rocker that I re-did. Today I have a couple quick projects that really added some fun to our home. I have seen this idea on Pinterest (gotta love Pinterest) and wanted to try it myself. I had this frame sitting on a shelf and decided to use it. If you don't have an old frame, just buy an in-expensive frame anywhere. I purchased a roll of burlap at the craft store and cut it into strips.
Then I just started tying knots around the frame. Super Easy!!! Once I tied burlap around the entire frame, I adjusted each knot to add a fuller look.
Tadaa!!! Here it is!!! Then I had to find a place to put it......
How about on the kitchen table. I already had this centerpiece and decided to place it in the middle of the wreath.
Super Stinkin' cute Huh???
Remember, there are many different colors of burlap. I have seen red, orange, green, light tan and more. Think of the possibilities!!!
I have also been working on one more small project. I was able to do it in a couple hours (once the shopping part of it was done). I absolutely love the transformation. I have to be honest with all of you, this snow is getting a little depressing. I am so anxious to open my windows and let that fresh spring air in - without freezing. I decided to do a little change up in our room. Check this out.
This is the way our bed looked before Christmas. During the holiday season, I added stockings on the end of the bed and also some Christmas pillows.
This is how it looks now!!! Fun change huh??
I purchased a new bedspread at ShopKo. I looked at a few other places, but couldn't find what I had in mind.....until I saw this one. It happened to be on sale for almost 70% off which made me love it even more. I bought the King Size bedspread even though our bed is only a queen. I wanted it to reach the floor on both sides. I purchased some in-expensive tan pillow cases and kept the other two tan and red pillows I already had on the bed. My sweet friend Amy (yep, the one who wanted her glider rocker back after she sold it to me - LOL) sewed a slip cover for the round pillow on my bed. I have loved it, so I found the same fabric and covered two more square pillows. I chose one more piece of fabric that is tan with black writing and covered four more pillows. These were actually the same pillows I used at Christmas. Amy showed me how to make slip covered for them, so I could re-use the pillow over and over. Great Idea HUH???? I was able to sew the slip covers really quickly and threw them on the bed. Big difference huh????
I am loving it!!
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this fabric!!!
I think this language is french.....Anybody know?
I used the same afghan that I crocheted last year and just draped it across the bottom of the bed at an angle. It is a little creamier than the bedspread which adds a little contrast.
I bought a couple baskets (On Clearance - Another WooHoo) for our night stands. It is nice having a place to through our little extras during the day. I purchased some burlap with this alphabet design and made two more pillows covers. I tied a small piece of burlap around the pillow and tadaa!!!
Ahhhh, isn't he cute???? This is my cat copper who absolutely LOVES my side of the bed. He loves this afghan I made and sleeps there all the time. Doesn't he look happy????
Thanks for sharing part of your day with us today! Have a wonderful weekend and we will see you back here next Saturday for more of our ~Make Your House A Home~ post!!
