At 39 weeks I'm waiting and waiting for this new baby boy to decide to make an appearance. Luckily my parents are here and with my moms help I recovered my nursing glider. It was this ugly beige green and I fel in love gray and white chevron.
So we took each of the cushions and traced out a pattern. Adding 0.5" for seam allowance I think it turned out great. They best part is I can take off the chevron cover and wash it! Another bonus, it looks like a completely new glider!
My nap time project today was to make Aiden a tshirt from one that Chris was going to donate. I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did! It was seriously easy and took me all of 30 minutes. Given it was my first try I was still surprised at how easy it all was. This was a great way to recycle some old unwanted tshirts and the best part is it fit Aiden perfect, with a little room for growth so I'll make the next one a smudge bigger.
The tutorial and pattern I found was free through a blog called Dana made it and the link is: http://www.danamadeit.com/2013/02/tutorial-and-free-pattern-5-steps-to-the-basic-tee.html
I had just purchased a bamboo wood frame from the goodwill for $1.99 and picked up a can of rustoleum universal metallic spray pain in silver from the home depot this afternoon. I was looking up ideas on what to put inside the frame and saw this silver bamboo painted picture frame (exactly what I had in mind when I bought my frame at the goodwill) on google images. Turns out it was a link to this diy blog. She has a really simple tutorial on how to make paint chip art for her spray painted frame. This might be what I end up doing since I do have quite a stack of paint chips hidden away....
Anyways after clicking through a few of her posts I fell in love this blog! She has some great ideas and the DIY projects are pretty straight forward anyone can do them! Click on this link to see her full tutorial. LiveLoveDIY: DIY Paint Chip Art
Love the painted glass bottle or jars look. These looked easy to do and really nice for table decorations for a party! Check it out at the blog colorful living project:
Saw this post on the blog infarrantlycreative (click and want to make one! She took Ana Whites original plan and switch the layout so the baskets line up lengthwise rather than width wide which works out better for our laundry room as well. The measurements are all there so all I need to do is go to Home Depot to get them cut and bring them home for my dad or my hubby to assemble!
