This sweet little pin has made my house smell ah-mazing all day. I’ve had rosemary, lemons, and vanilla extract simmering in water on the stove, and the whole house smells delightful. I’m totally doing this on a weekly basis from here on out.
Next: Our kitchen door.
I didn’t get a picture my actual kitchen door because, well, I’m lazy. But this is the pinspiration behind it, and I’m so glad I crossed this task off my to-do list. Our kitchen door had seen better days–it was a dingy, dirty white with peeling paint and scuff marks everywhere. I brightened it up with a sunshine-y yellow and used cream on the insets (in the same way this image uses a lilac to contrast the pink). A little ruffly valance to top it off, and voila! My kitchen door is no longer a total embarrassment.
Third: A DIY yarn wreath
I snagged some pipe insulation to transform into wreath forms (4 pieces for $3), a neutral colored yarn ($2.50) and some faux flowers for embellishments ($2). The pin above was my inspiration for turning the insulation into a wreath form, and all I did was wrap yarn around it and secure some of the faux flowers onto one of the curves. It is definitely adding a touch of spring to our decor.
This little wreath project is so easy that I’ve actually finished three of them over the last couple of days–one for our front door, one for our dining room, and one for a friend. I have another one started that I’ll be finishing tonight (for you, Mom!).
Oh, and I should also tell you that this BBQ chicken recipe is currently cooking away in the crockpot.
Yup, I’m hooked on Pinterest.
