How have you been?! We are STILL working on that silly house. Trying to get it ready to sale. Getting closer and closer though. We were very optimistic that we would not have to replace any carpet but…..looks like we’re going to have to. Oh well……
In the meantime…..I received my new Ballard Catalog in the mail yesterday! A fun distraction from all of the work! I am loving lots of things they’re showing this go round. And saw some fab. DIY ideas!
Such as these pretty drapery panels.
Theirs are burlap with a gorgeous white crewel embroidery design and are lined. They’re also pricey. Starting at $179.00 per panel. But…..how easy would it be to make your own for a fraction of the price! Burlap is cheap cheap at around $3.00 a yard. Then purchase a medallion stencil and paint your design on. Line if you wish and you have a beautiful panel. Since I am soooo into turquoise, I could also see this pattern in a robins egg blue. YUMMY!
I LOVED LOVED this dining table!
The top is zinc. Which I have been in love with for awhile. Theirs is $800.00! YIKES! I think you could make one for a fraction of the price. The legs look a lot like fence posts and the rest of the design is very clean lined and simple. A little white paint and distressing, buy a sheet of zinc and form over a plywood top and….. voila!
In Ballard’s new catalog, they show the table above with these fab. wicker chairs.
The texture of that table with the wicker…..to die for! Okay, so you can’t knock these off, but maybe with all of the money you would be saving on the table……
They are however, $299.00 each. Plus shipping. I do so adore them though!
I also saw this plaque. Another easy peasy DIY idea!
If you can’t find a round tray, old cabinet doors are perfect for recreating distressed signs.
Just a few thoughts.
Heather and I always have these crazy DIY ideas swirling through our heads. Which does NOT mean that they ever get done!
Have a happy week!
