Working on my home

Time for some spring makeover ideas to come to life. I spent and still spend A LOT of time on Pinterest and found so many great ideas for my home =)
With all the nice weather we have had here in CA I started a few of my new found projects

First up...

This came from HERE
A site called Lovely Crafty Home.

I have completed the bathroom and half of the bedroom so far. I love the way the bathroom turned out
but all I can say about the bedroom is thank goodness for giant area rugs!

I went with a lighter stain than the original post because the walls are already dark enough but for some strange reason certain areas really came out dark. One tip if you plan on trying this out. 
* Do the whole room at the same time. 
trying to do this a section at a time is creating different looks in each section.
Like I said "thank goodness for area rugs!"

Next up will be privacy for my yard.

This one comes from http://homeimprovementpin.com/

I am surrounded by 2 story homes and never have any privacy in my yard. 
so I think I will give this a try and see what I come up with.

Prima wall plaque.

For my friend I made a wall plaque using Prima's Romantique collection and flowers I altered from recollections and Prima.

I hope she likes it!

New Mini Album

I love old farmhouses! 
This is my farmhouse (someday) in mini album form =)

Enjoy the video walk thru and thank you for watching!

I used October afternoons Farmhouse collection for most of the mini album and some bits and pieces from Crafty Secrets as well.

paper piecing went into making all the elements on the cover. The floorboards are individual strips of Coredinations whitewash paper sanded and stained edges. The porch railings are lightweight chipboard  whitewashed with the new TH distress paints.

And my favorite part of the front cover is my window boxes filled with pretty flowers.
