Burlap Garland *red* *white* *blue*

EASY Burlap Garland!

I got these rolls of burlap from burlapfabric.com 
(awesome site for all things burlap)
OH THE POSSIBILITIES!!!
 Thread a big yarn needle and make a big knot at the end of your yarn.
 Then all you do is weave your needle thru the burlap! SO EASY!!!
 If you know me tho, I can't keep anything plain! I added in all kinds of different ribbons, doilies, feathers, book pages, the kitchen sink.. HA!




 It's hanging proudly above my front door!

My hubs changed careers about 3 yrs ago.. but before that he had been a Professional painter for 10 years. {He has taught me all the tricks!}
I have lots of other great painting tips to share, so keep checking back!
This video only lasts like 40sec. so I know you can watch it real quick! :)

Planter Drawers {Makeover}

Well I have done it again! I have been wanting to add some more planter drawers to the other side of my porch, and I finally did! 
To see the OTHER drawers go HERE
 I got these drawers from my late father in law.. he had a 'man room'.. and they were going to throw these out... well you all know I wasn't going to let that happen!


I got a (free) GORGEOUS stencil from Royal Design Studio at SNAP, I have been waiting for the perfect project to use it on, and I think I couldn't have chosen a better one! 
The stencil is called Indian Paisley 7.5inX10in 
I am still putting the finishing touches on our curb appeal makeover, so keep checking back for the whole reveal!
