DIY Friday – Candy Corn Bottles

DIY Friday – Candy Corn Bottles

I’ve been so caught up with planning for Thanksgiving that I’d forgotten to post about a DIY I did for Halloween. So for today’s DIY Friday here’s a quick and easy project found on Pinterest from blogger Marji over in Ashbee Design. She had gotten the idea from another and then enhanced on it. 

Here is my version with tutorial of recycling bottles into Candy Corn Decor. 

   
    
    
 
It’s really that easy!! It didn’t take much time at all. Just waiting for the paint to dry. I let the white paint dry overnight only because I got distracted doing other things around the house but this could’ve easily been done in half a day {if your a perfectionist like me giving it a couple extra coats will take longer}!!

Laundry Room: A Mini-Makeover Reveal

Laundry Room: A Mini-Makeover Reveal

Hope you all are as excited as I am about my Mini Makeover Laundry Room Reveal……I’m ecstatic about sharing with you all in my chaos of this project that I had mentioned on Saturday’s – Sneak Peak post!!! YAAAAAYYYYY! Though it was only a mini makeover, I hope someday soon to finish my plans and ideas for the space in the very near future, but all good things take time.

I have been dying to get some sense of organization in this space and it would drive me nuts that I had to have everything on top of the dryer (in reach) because the shelves in here were simply too high for lil’ me. They may have worked for the previous owner of the home but not so much for me. Though I know I’ll need to make good use of this space even if I can’t reach things without a little help but at least for the laundry detergents and items I use often, I can have the space to make those within my reach.

 

 

READY?????………………..trumpets & drum roll please……………………………………………………….

Target & the Container Store (my 2 fav places to shop/get inspired). Here are some links to where you can find these things.

Elfa Easy Hang (white components) \\ Elfa Decor White Shelf and Drawer w/ frame \\ Devine Color by Valspar – Petal (Paint) \\ Devine Color Silver Dust \\ Drydex Spackle Kit \\ Baskets were already on hand and bought from the Christmas Tree Shop, I believe.

A better look at the sparkly paint! It’s very subtle but lovely to look at. You can see it right where the flash hit it.

I’ve only purchased bits and pieces of the shelves that I need for this space, and will be adding more as I go along the next few months. Here are a few inspirational ideas that I’m hoping to add to this little room/closet.

 

 

How do you all like it? Any other organizational ideas you love and could share for your laundry rooms??

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

DIY Friday – Bird Feeders

Happy Friday Lovelies!!

Today’s DIY Friday I made with my best friend’s twin boys whom I’m baby(big boy)sitting today. 😉

My Bestie really wanted some bird feeders for her yard, and she told me about this pic she had on her Pinterest board.

Another Pinterest project!! Hehe my favorite kind of project 🙂

So while they were away I figured to do this for her with the boys; it would be a fun thing to do with them.

We each got our own can (labels already removed and cleaned out) and carefully started painting.


  
Once we covered our cans in paint we had to wait for it to dry. So we placed them in the sun though they weren’t too happy about it but understood and they were excited to go to the park while we waited.


  
These are the semi-finished products before the bird seeds go in.


Don’t these look great?!?  These munchkins did a wonderful job!

Well, enjoy the rest of your Friday Lovelies!! Hope you enjoyed our little project 🙂
