I have grown to appreciate the little pieces of our house that have grown the beginning pieces of our relationship. Even though I haven't poured my heart and soul into this house, it has provided us with comfort, shelter, and a place to call home.Read More
As a new wife, making our house a home has been number 1 on my To Do List! However it's not as easy when you can't blow a grand on nice matching furniture (I wish I could), so I have resorted to my creativity for help. We've been using Walmart TV stands as our bedside tables for a year now and I can't stand them!!! But after spending a bunch of money on a wedding and honeymoon, as well as missing work for those wonderful events, new bedside tables were not a priority, money wise. I really wanted to make our master bedroom a place that we enjoy, so I got to work with what I had.
There had been leftover white paint in our basement since Kyle bought the house, and I used some a few weeks ago for some wedding crafts that I did. I grabbed the half of a can that I had left and just sat and painted the dang TV stands and I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! They look super shabby chic now, and I'm just so happy with them.
Take good care, loves!
This week has been jam packed with DIYs and prep work for the wedding! Our whole wedding is basically a do it yourself kinda thing because we aren't having it at a traditional venue. Our location that we picked is sentimental and absolutely beautiful: Kyle's childhood home. We had to rent a huge tent, dancefloor, tables, chairs, table cloths. We have to purchase all of our alcohol and mix (theres about 65 2litres of pop in my living room right now...). We have been gardening there for a few months now, and the rest is all up to me and my craftiness to fancy it up! Here are a few pieces we picked up at Michael's yesterday and crafted to add a little bit of country chic to our classy, clean theme. I'll be posting our pictures from the photographer of our décor after the wedding so you can see exactly how it all turned out!
Come back tomorrow to see what I got my bridesmaids as gifts!
Take good care lovies!!!
