Valentine’s Tablescape

IMG_2296

Happy Valentine’s Day! We have had a tradition in our family that started with our oldest daughter when she was little. My husband would not only buy me a gift but he would pick out a gift for each of our daughter’s. I remember one year he bought us matching monogrammed Tiffany bracelet’s. I will always remember that Valentine’s as one of my favorites!

This year, we decided to do things a little differently! Each daughter has one of the pink ribbon boxes with a small trinket in it. My husband and I decided on a gift for each other that would benefit our entire family for years to come! We bought a camper!! No, it’s not one of those shiny, new ones! It is definitely a fixer upper! Oh, the memories we will make, just the six of us!!

I made the table runner with craft paper from Hobby Lobby. I used a chalk marker pen to hand letter the words, “love you” directly onto the paper. All flowers and greenery are also from Hobby Lobby. This is just the second tablescape, that I have ever created and boy do I love it!!

 

I hope you enjoy this day with your significant other and your children as well. Happy Valentine’s Day from our family to yours!

Much Love~ Shae!

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!
