Raising the laundry!

So for the last 4 years or so my husband has been wanting pedistals for our washer and dryer. They are around $250 each, so it was silly to spend that much when I have the skill to make them right? However I have done so many other projects that those were always on the back burner. The other day I decided to first search for thinks on FB marketplace that were the rough size of what I needed for pediatals. I finally found a lady about 20 mins away that had a large solid coffee table. The dimensions were near perfect and it isn’t just your simple 4 leg coffee table so if you didn’t know that’s what it was, you might not even realize that’s what I have as our pediatals! 

I was able to complete this pediatal project for only $65! I added a piece of wood on the front middle section so I had a sturdy base for the plywood piece, then I added as a shelf so I could put cute baskets. I painted it white and then our awesome neighbor came over to help. Here’s the before and after!

Beautiful White bed set

Took this set and brought it back to life with fresh white paint and light grey for the drawers! 

This is before, they needed quite a bit of work even before paint! 

I had to sand this one a lot, because the last paint job had globs and thick brush strokes of paint...

After the brown, scuffed queen bed got multiple coats of white paint and sealer from the trusty paint gun!

Fun mesh garland

I made this super fun and cute Christmas garland for my amazing aunt, who always makes me beautiful things with her many talents. It was my turn to make a custom creation for her! I used a nice 9’ garland and added red and white 21” wide mesh in large billowy sections to really beef it up. I then added fun candy cane striped ribbon and to top of off attached ornaments and some funky green present stakes. I totally love how it turned out, pictures don’t do it justice!

Christmas Tree for Upstairs

I was able to put our old Christmas tree up in the babies play room today. 

For those who don’t know how to make a super cheap tree look fancy, expensive, and be kid friendly, here you go! 

So this is a seriously sad looking tree by itself. It’s a smaller, barely 5’ tree that is 6.5’ now after I added an old tin bucket, flipped it over, and put the tree on top of it. Then I added 3 rows of decorative green mesh. This stuff really helps make the tree look full! I just tucked it under the branches here and there down the tree to add some billowy cuteness. Then add some cute Christmas picks that won’t get broken if the kiddos take them off. 

For the cherry on top, add an oversized snowman hat from Kirkland’s.

This tree went from super sad throw away, to FABULOUS!!! Hope you like it๐ŸŽ„
