Pink & Polka Dot

I don’t organize my features…….there I said it………as in, I never plan ahead……I think someday I’ll get on the ball and have themed weeks……write a few ahead of time and schedule them to be posted when I’m away from the computer….I aspire to be like that……..I’d also like to remember every feature I ever did. There are so many lately that I think that I have already featured……This is the reason I had a button designed for featured bloggers……that way I know I featured them already.

Imagine my surprise when I get an email from Pink & Polka Dot saying that was her table in the Mod Podge feature. I clicked on her blog and thought “oh yes, I know this one…..I’ve featured her” But I didn’t see the darling, cute, wonderful featured button that all featured bloggers SHOULD display. So I asked her……..GAH! I haven’t featured her. Yipee! She’s got way too much fun inspiration to let this set much longer in my FFF. (she was in my FFF forever I noticed)

So here’s her table just in case you missed it. She decoupage paper to it. I have a table just like this….it even has some of the vinyl ripped….this would be a perfect project. The table was in my husbands room when I met him……..poor guy….that’s why he stays out of all decorating decisions.

I could look at her craft room for hours……..some people look at fish tanks to relax………..I look at craft rooms. And I just have to say……….I love me some burlap.PB150062

While visiting her blog again……..I saw something that knocked my socks off. She re-did her floors. Wood floors are so beautiful…..but can be pricey. Not very budget minded………but she found a way to do it.

DSC_0005 Don’t they look nice? I hate to tell you this, but they are not real wood…..no they aren’t laminate either……..DSC_0027

She used these vinyl stick on strips. She has a tutorial on her blog too. WE LOVE TUTORIALS! Amazing results.

You can see she added it to her laundry room too………her newly re-decorated laundry room. Can you tell I’m a bit obsessed with Laundry rooms lately? I am………I’m also obsessed with Mud Rooms……especially faux mud rooms in the garage…….so if you have one, I need photos.

The girl has some mad skills. Of course she can sew………bla bla bla……….I’m really starting to get irritated by all you fancy pants sewers…….UGH! Not only can she sew, but she makes slip covers……..and pillows out of old shirts. Recycling at it’s best. This print has seen better days for a shirt, but as a pillow……oh so cute.

Nice chair……..dated print………although I still like it……She went the brave way and made slipcovers……..WHITE slipcovers.

She found white canvas fabric at Walmart for $5.99yd. Dang she’s talented. Why can’t you people live next door to me?

P8230034

This looks like she just picked it up from IKEA….love it. And who cares if it gets dirty…….it’s a slipcover.

P8260001

Her talent in giving furniture new life doesn’t stop there. This lovely chair would be fine for some people, but she’s like me and likes to paint wood………it looks better anyway. Just my opinon……today.

DSC_0022

Point made…….Just try to tell me you don’t like this better. The black paint……the sassy zebra print……..even if that’s too bold for you…..other fabric is available. Beautiful.

The real reason I love her so much is………can you see them? DSC_0038The shutters! I have shutters above my fireplace too. We are kindred spirits……..this proves that I do have style. Mine are here.

I also like peering into her living room.

Here’s a fun project she shared with us……….of course she added a tutorial…..love her.

She has a few tutorials on how to do monograms using your printer……..

DSC_0007

Yes………..she also has a tutorial on this darling onesie. Really.

I noticed she also has an etsy shop with some fun goodies.

Do you think she knows how talented she is? Maybe you should go tell her? Do the right thing. :)
