Laundry Room floor makeover!

I love how the flooring turned out in our laundry room!  It used to be this nasty yellow linoleum and we finally got it all covered up!  Yay!!

Don’t mind the mess!  🙂

After moving the washer, dryer, & tub out, the hubbs discovered that we needed to put some new piping in – he figured the old stuff had been there since the 80’s when the house was built!  Then he ripped the top of the old stuff out & then laid down some new sub-floor & tacked it down with lots & lots & lots of screws.

Then we he put down some special adhesive and then we were able to lay the duraceramic tiles on top of it!  Then we put the grout in between each tile to make it look nice & fancy 😀  That was the part that I got to help with! 

Success!!

Painting more flowers!

I love how my flower canvas collage in my bathroom turned out, so I thought I’d take a shot at making some more of them!  I’ve got one more done so far, with one other started.  I took 4 blank canvases, laid 2 horizontal & 2 vertical & then put my pattern down on it.  Then I traced around the pattern.  I chose a fun minty green paint (Martha Stewart) for the flower. 

Then I had picked out a fun brown color that I decided to use as the accent color.  Both took a couple coats of paint, but I like how they turned out!  If I had those colors in my house, I’d want to keep them 🙂

I wasn’t sure what to do with the middle, but I decided to use a black fabric paint marker & traced along the inside of the green.  I liked how it made it pop, so ended up going around the entire flower! 



Nope, it’s not going on this pink wall!  😀  Just wanted to give an example of how I’d hang it up 😀

If you would like me to make one for you with the colors of your choice, let me know!!

Making curtains

Hello friends!  I could really use some advice on my curtains for our living room!  I bought these awesome brown curtains last year at a garage sale (for $8!! – wahoooo!!!) and am finally getting around to hanging them up 🙂  Why the delay you may ask?  I’m not really sure what the answer is in all honesty.  I didn’t really know where I wanted to hang them, or how I wanted to put them up.  But, after finding some fun fabric at JoAnn’s to cover my pillows,

& scoring a clearanced out body pillow cover that is perfect,

I decided I need to add something more to the living room.  Don’t be fooled though, I decided this a LONG time ago 🙂  Have I ever mentioned that I’m the queen of procrastination?  It’s true.  I’ll admit it.  Here’s what the living room looked like without the curtains, or the new pillows:

I wanted the curtains to hang from floor to ceiling, but they’re just not quite long enough.  I’ve heard many, many times that this helps to make your room look bigger.  Well, this has added to my undecidedness (is that even a word?!) as I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do  I had some left over fabric from the pillows that I thought about using.  But I also found some…. wait for it….. cloth napkins at Target that I had thought about trying to incorporate as well.  I think the pattern is super cute & well, they match the body pillow pretty well!

Here’s where I need your help!  The fabric on each side is just loosely pinned onto the curtains.  Which one do you think looks better?  The one that matches the pillows?  Or the one with the fun fabric?

Voting starts…… now  😀

You can see they don’t quite hit the floor…. but adding fabric will give them the length they need!

There’s the hubbs, checking on the grass seed he put down now that the snow here is FINALLY gone!  Praise Jesus!

See which one I chose here:
