Crafts on the To Do List!

Thanks to Pinterest, I am forever adding crafts to my To Do list! Have I done any of them?! I'm pretty sure I haven't, but let's be real for a moment. The point of Pinterest is to inspire us and give us ideas on new meals to cook, new outfit combinations to try, new home decorations to create, and do-it-yourself gifts and projects to make. There really is an unlimited  amount of ideas you can pin and draw inspiration from!

Since I haven't really followed through with any of my DIY crafts or home decor pins, I'm making it a point to, hopefully, in the coming months work on creating some pieces I've added to my boards! I don't want to set myself up for failure so I'm not going to try anything that will be too intense or expensive {I'm on a super severe spending freeze at the moment}. Those big projects will have to wait, however, the ones that are easy on the pocket and time are what I'm hoping to accomplish!

I really would like a new front door, however to extend the life of the one we have for a wee bit longer I think painting it may be a better alternative! I love this mint color and think it would look great with our contrasting black shutters! I may just paint it black though, as to keep it all cohesive!

These are burlap covered canvases with the initials drawn on with a black sharpie marker!

I am dying to make this Acrylic Tray!!! And I think with how inexpensive it is, I may have to make one for every room!!!

I would love to do this with me, the hubby, and Baby Reef and hang them as a part of our gallery wall I am planning to put up in our hallway!

I definitely would like to do this with one of our home keys as a part of the gallery wall as well! 

These are all pretty simplistic, wouldn't y'all agree?! I'm looking forward to accomplishing some of these sooner than later! There is A LOT going on in our home right now! I may even "bare it all" to you soon and share how imperfect the inside of our home is! Lots of projects going on at once and never enough time to finish them! 

Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!! We had snow yesterday! Yes, snow at the end of March! Where is Spring?!?! I hope it's closer than it appears!!! Have a lovely Monday my darling's and don't forget to enter my Give Away here!! It ends on Friday! XoXo!

  4. Girl, I would go with the mint for the door! If you hate it, it'd be easy to just go over it with black... be daring!! :) And take pics, obviously :)

  7. I'm with you on the current spending freeze. Our front door is hideous, and I've been trying to talk Chris into us buying a new one. But now I'm thinking why not just paint it? It's a very inexpensive idea and we could definately get another year or two out of it!

    Lovin' the key idea. I am also started a "gallery wall" with pictures of us all throughout dating and engagement and memorable stuff we've done, etc. Since this is our first house together, the key idea is pretty fantastic!

    xo, Ashley
