Craft Time

It's time for a craft update! Since the dresser, we have worked on a couple other little projects around the house that I'm loving and make us feel more at home...

1. Bedroom Canvases

Ben's sweet Mom sent us some Styrofoam sheets with some ideas of what you can do to spruce them up and decorate your home. We decided to go out and look for some fabric to make "canvases." I really like how they turned out and they add some great color to the room (it looks red in the pictures but its more of a coral color in real life)! The fabric is so "us" as well...passport stamps!

The hardest thing about this project was trying to figure out how to hang them. The first command strips we used (Styrofoam=super light) had them falling off the wall in the middle of the night! After we got some "poster" command strips, they seem to be holding up much better! None have fallen off so far...

2. Bathroom Towel Hooks

Ben drives me crazy hanging his towels on doors, door handles, bedposts, etc. so I have been dying for a place to properly hang my towels for some time! I looked all over the city for something that I liked but everything was either way out of our price range, or not quite what I was looking for! So, I decided to make one myself! Ben was making a tool bench out of pallets so he had a spare board for me to use and I ordered the perfect hooks online! I love how it turned out!! And hopefully there will be no more wet towels hanging all over the house!!

3. Coming up next...

Now that I've done something for the bedroom and the bathroom...the kitchen is next! As usual, it will probably take three times the amount of time it's supposed to take but hopefully I will have it finished fairly soon!

I've been getting into a spring cleaning mood lately! Hopefully our house will start looking more decorated because of it!
