A DULL WASH ROOM GONE FARMHOUSE STYLE!
Hi there...hope you are all enjoying your summer ! It's been busy here kids moving out and kids moving in! One things for sure they all keep me on my toes.....you just gotta love your kids and go with it. They all know they can always come on back home. I thought I would redo the wash room I don't know the proper name for this room but it is attached to a master bedroom and the door that you will see leads to a shower room that I shared the redo a bit ago. So there was allot of wallpaper peeling my worst job ever!!!
As I have shared with you before the best way to remove wallpaper is a spray bottle with some hot soapy water and a good scraper. Its tedious but once you get going it not to bad. That was one days work. Once that was complete I painted a bright vanilla cream color. Lets take a look!
I wanted to mix some farm animals for fun so my red rooster seem to fit nicely atop the mirror. I used allot of red white and blue so that it would be cohesive with the bedroom theme.
I placed a red rug to pick up color
The vanity was black so I added some white to make it seem like old wood
We don't put out pretty soaps here everything in this glass jar will be used daily, soaps etc.
I bout a half way curtain rod from Tuesday morning so I hung a little lace curtain .
My old school house chair fits nice in the corner
This sign I hung above the door is so fitting wouldn't you say??
I took an iron basket that is really for out doors to fill with a coconut liner and flowers but it seemed fitting here to hold all the hairdryers and straightening irons. Well that's it........a clean, fun makeover that only costs me the paint but I had all of the décor items on hand. What a little paint can do always amazes me!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
