DIY Flower Market Sign

I have been planning for months to make a mini flower market display in our entry way. I asked my husband to make the sign double sided and around 30×20 in size. He cut a sheet of plywood, in the size I needed, for the front and back of the sign. For the trim, he used a 1×1 pine board.

I painted the inside of the sign with Rust-Oleum Chalk Board Paint in School House Green. It reminds me of the color of the chalk board from when I was in school!

Next, I applied a white wash to soften the green up, just a bit. My technique for the white wash is to add a little water and a tad bit of paint. I use a rag and swipe over the paint in a rainbow pattern!

For the wording on my sign, I purchased a file from the Silhouette Store called Fresh Flower Market. I cut, weeded and applied the design to my sign.

This is a simple diy and I love how it turned out! I have even used the sign on my front porch for décor!

Happy Spring y’all! Love~Shae

Milk Glass Collection

I fell in love with milk glass a couple years ago, thus the beginning of a new found collection! I originally began collecting milk glass so I could show it off in a corner cabinet that I am dreaming of! We have plans to build one soon! For now, I enjoy decorating with milk glass throughout my home. Everything you see pictured in the first pic, I actually purchased at an estate sale for $15!! It was a steal!

Over the weekend, I visited my favorite local antique store, called the Brass Bear Antiques. I was on the hunt for a few items and one of those items was milk glass vases! I did find several milk glass vases! Score! Reasonably priced for $4-$6 a piece!

I feel like there are so many different ways to display your milk glass. From a spring tablescape to a corner hutch or on a tray in your kitchen! Add greenery or flowers and you’ve got a gorgeous, simple vignette!

Do you ever purchase a antique piece and wonder where it has been? What is the history behind the milk glass? How many owners did it have? Was it given as a special gift to someone for a birthday or a “just because” gift? Do any of ya’ll collect anything that is dear to your heart? Do you have a special antique that was given to you by a family member? You will find many antique pieces, throughout our home. Many of those pieces were given to us by our Grandparents.

Farmhouse Half Bath Makeover

img_2077

Last weekend, my husband and I decided to do a mini makeover on our half bath. Shiplap, shiplap and give me all the shiplap!! To make this a budget friendly makeover, I used faux shiplap called pine underlayment. It is sold by the sheet for $15 for a 4×8 sheet. My husband ripped the boards into six inches wide and we got eight boards out of each sheet. We needed five boards for this bathroom and installed them with a nail gun. For the corner, we used a strip of corner moulding.  I also left all of the nail holes after installing because I loved the character and charm that it gave to the room!  After installing the boards, I painted with Sherwin Williams in Base White. The total cost of the wood we used was $80!

Since this was such a small space, I was having a hard time finding a mirror that was the right size and that was in my budget.  I had an idea to buy just a plain builders grade mirror with no trim and I found one at Home Depot for $25! We then used leftover antique wood  for the mirror frame. It was the same wood we used for our table and the shelves.

We decided to purchase a light fixture along with a towel and tissue holders. This entire project cost us right around $180! Look below for the before shot!
