Loving these fabric banners!

I made these fabric banners for both of my girls rooms.  I really love them!  I will definitely do more of these especially for birthday parties and they were super easy to make!

I like to mix up the fabrics especially with different textures.  Both of my girls loved them!  No sewing just hot glue.  Easy peasy!

My hubby got me the floor lamp to the left of my couch for Christmas and it is exactly what I wanted.  It looks alot the one from Pottery Barn and a whole lot cheaper.  It came from Home Depot and they have a pretty good selection of floor lamps.   I couldn't find one anywhere else that I liked.

I moved my black drop leaf table out of my dining room and put it in my kitchen for a island.  I love islands and this is the closest thing to one right now. I moved my round table out to give it more space in there.

Bo says "Happy Monday"!!

Happy Late New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We sure did!!  I have been a bad blogger, but I promise to be better!  It has been so fun redoing things around the house since I took down all of my Christmas decorations.  You know the saying "shop the house"  Well I definitely done that!  I finally got around to redoing my new dining table and I LOVE IT!  I painted the bottom white and I am probably going to glaze or something to it later on, but for right now I like it white.  I stripped the old stain off the top and used Danish Oil in Dark Walnut and I really like the color alot.  I paid $50 for this table, what a bargain!  I used my chairs that I had in there before and recovered the seats in linen.  I really like my bench there too!  I think it looks like a farmhouse table now.  I would like another bench later on but this one will do for now.

This is what it looked like before

and now the after

I moved my black table that was under my mirror in my dining to the kitchen (will show you later).  I moved this white little table in.  For this table I painted it white and distressed it a ton!  I love that basket underneath that I got while thrifting and I put my chenille throw in it.  My  little cutie owl on top was brown and I painted him white.

This chair came with my dining room table and I was really sad that there was only one because I love it.  I painted her a pretty turquoise and she is beautiful now!  I gave her a new seat too.  Here she is at her new home.

I will be back to show you some fun things I have  done over the past few weeks. 

I am linking to a few parties today
