Yay for Weekends!I love weekends and I’m excited for this weekend because I have a lot of crafty stuff I want to do! I’m really obsessed with reading all the crafty blogs out there and getting all these great ideas for my house! Now if only I had more time and money to do them all RIGHT NOW!

I’m also going to try to check out a swap meet near my house and a few thrift stores!

First project: Molding Squares:28369_0_4-2436-traditional-staircase                                  I saw this a long time ago here, and I loved it! I have been plotting and planning and finally going to do it this weekend! I’m going to put the squares side by side below the window on the landing of our stairway.IMG_4540                                         That picture was taken before we painted the walls. The are now light brown with dark brown accents walls, so painting the inside of the squares the accent color will look great!                           DSC08381                                I don’t have any cool iron pieces like she does, so I think I’ll do a stencil in the middle of the squares like this:                                                                           DSC07435DSC07436

Second project: Curtains on back door:050[4]                                     I’m going to put some curtains on our back door like hers. If you haven’t noticed, I LOVE everything she does! Thrifty Decor Chick has a great blog with tons of great ideas and help on how to do it! Yay!Picture1                                     I’m putting the curtains there (see the arrow :)) It give us some more privacy since now our back neighbors can see everything we’re doing through that window. Weird.

And finally, project 3: pictures and vinyl on stairs:wallphotos          This is at Alicia Lee (Carter)’s house and I love all the random pictures with the phrase in the middle. So of course I’m going to copy it! I got the same phrase in vinyl and I’m going to put up a bunch of frames (all black) on the other wall going up the stairs.                       Picture1                                     So what do you think? Can I do it all? Will it look good? Who knows, but I’m excited and I’m sure it will be fun! I’ll post pics when I’m done!

Oh and maybe I’ll have some time to clean! Haha yeah right…

K, I was super confused seeing a picture of my husband on someone else's blog... Then read a little more and figured it out. ;) Yes, it will look fantastic! I can't wait to see your pictures of the finished products.
