DIY Gilded Vases From Condiment Bottles

Happy Monday Tuesday friends :) Did y’all have a great holiday weekend?

We stayed around the house and relaxed…and cleaned. The state of it was embarrassing…I mean it was bad y’all!

But we made a huge dent in it yesterday (other than the 5 loads of laundry on the couch waiting to be folded) and I learned that little man really enjoys mopping and cleaning potty’s. Actually it’s more like water play to him but he does an unusually great job helping me out!

***I also wanted to let you know that winner of the Target Gift Card is Cynthia Gaarder! Congrats Cynthia! I hope you find some great stuff!***

Gilded Vases

This is the easiest DIY project EVER! Okay, I think I’ve said that before but this really is…and the cheapest!

I’m still on the gold kick and I don’t see it ending anytime soon! I’ve been eyeing lots of vases and other gold accents mostly at Target and HomeGoods for fall decorating but I don’t have much of a budget :(

I decided to take matters into my own hands and I raided my pantry and fridge for any glass vases. I decided to spray paint them gold in simple patterns. Nothing was safe from my can of gold paint!

There is a hot sauce jar, spice jar, a jar that had sea salt in it, etc..

I taped them off with my favorite Frog Tape creating different patterns on each one and gave them a quick spray.

This is by far my favorite gold spray paint and I’ve used it on almost any surface!

We picked these flowers up from our local farmers market this weekend and although they are so beautiful as a big bouquet I thought they would look great separated in the vases.

Aren’t they so unique! You’ve gotta love farmers market flowers!

I’m so happy with the way they turned out! You can group them together as a centerpiece or spread them throughout the house if you’re expecting guests for the holidays!

Currently my little man is fighting me over which ones get to live in his room :)

What do you think? I bet you have a few bottles around your house you could fancy up with some gold paint!

There’s lots of fall decorating coming this month so stay tuned and here are a couple of my favorites from last year!

Rustic Coastal Bathroom Design // Avery Street Design Blog

Mornin’  Y’all! I hope your day has started off right…if it has started yet :)

I just wanted to pop in and let you know I’m over at Avery Street Design Blog today with my friend Laura sharing a design board of a lovely rustic coastal bathroom. Head over and check out the unique project we’ve collaborated on this week!

Laura’s blog is gorgeous and she is the queen of making her spaces beautiful without breaking the bank!

This zipper clutch is by far my favorite project of hers! I haven’t attempted to make one yet but it’s on the ‘to do’ list! I love the fact that she DIY’d her business cards…but I guess I would too if I could write like that! Don’t leave her blog without checking out the progress on her beautiful white office space! Who doesn’t love these Ikea wall lamps!

Below is my design board for the rustic coastal bathroom! I love creating boards and I rarely get to work on a bathroom so I jumped at the chance when Laura asked me to tackle this project!

After finishing this I started thinking about my own home. My master bedroom just got some love…hmm…maybe my master bath will be next?!?!

Blogger Styling Home Tours: Favorite Room Edition

Happy Hump Day Friends! And what a day it is!

Have you guys been following all the amazing favorite rooms so far this week? They are just blowing me away! If you are coming from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs, welcome! Sarah’s style is incredible and so unique, right?!?!

A huge thanks to Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. for hosting yet another amazing home tour! She is the best and has the most amazingly eclectic style. Her home is truly one of a kind so definitely check her out!

I’m glad you’re here and I can’t wait to share my room with you! This room has been a bit of a work in progress because naturally my space takes a back seat to other rooms in the house. Well no more! Mama’s going to enjoy MY space now :)

In our home the whole upstairs level is my master suite. The bedroom, master bath, closet, and office space. I feel blessed to have this much room all my own but I haven’t given it the attention it needs to be a relaxing space.

I finished my office area a couple months ago and I’ve been working in the bedroom slowly since.

You probably saw my new paint post a couple weeks ago and that was just the beginning of this mini makeover. It was just the push I needed to make a few changes so I can really enjoy my space.

IMG_9029

I essentially had zero money {okay like $20} for this makeover so I had to get really creative and use lots of things I already had.

The inspiration for the basket wall was the giant tray from Target that I had coveted for so long and my sweet mama bought me for my birthday. I debated on where to put it for a long time and realized this would be the perfect place but I didn’t want it to stand alone. I found the additional baskets from the Habitat Restore and they ranged in price from $.25-$2.50!

I’m totally in love with this basket wall, even more so than I thought I would be. The texture reminds me of the sweetgrass baskets from the market in Charleston, SC and embodies so much of my coastal style and influence!

IMG_9055

The picture ledge accent wall is another easy DIY that I created but I’m bummed because the light and the angles of my room just don’t make it possible to get a good shot. I free handed the nautical coordinates of some of our important and favorite places ~ Moscow, London, Charleston, etc ~ with a gold sharpie paint pen.

I love the way it turned out and it’s so meaningful to us (and coastal) but I hate you can’t really tell what it really looks like in person :(

Oh well, moving on…

IMG_9015

I built these picture ledges ~ another project from scrap wood in my garage ~ and they are the perfect place for some fun art!

I love the dream printable from The Blissful Bee. The anchor was made for me by a dear friend.

IMG_9042

The canvas painting is my first attempt at abstract art. The pom pom trim was from the Target dollar bin.

IMG_8992

The simple details are what make me love the room so much. These roses are from our backyard and so is the hydrangea.

IMG_9050

IMG_9051

I wasn’t feeling the brushed nickel look anymore so I painted these Ikea lamp bases gold to be consistent with the rest of the accessories in the room

IMG_9052

In a way I don’t think these Ikea pillows that I have fit in the space but on the other hand I like the bold affect they have on the otherwise neutral and muted color palette. And they’re super comfy so they stay!

IMG_9063

My wire faux taxidermy was a gift and was originally all white but I thought he would stand out more if his antlers were gold.

What do you think of him with a little bling?

IMG_8586

IMG_9006

If you’ve visited my blog before you probably know I have a coffee station in my master bedroom and it just got an upgrade! I bought a grungy old white campaign chest off craigslist about a year ago and finally painted it this fun coral color.

I dipped into my stash of HomeGoods wrapping paper to line the drawers.

IMG_8910

IMG_8906

I also picked this star up the other day from the Habitat Restore and I think it fits perfectly on top of my pile of HGTV mags.

This black and white photo of my beautiful mama is one of my favorite pieces from the many gallery walls in our home.

IMG_8935

I think the pop of coral balances out the neutral room and bold pillows

IMG_9020

I’d love to know what you think! The room is simple but that’s part of why it is so refreshing…and I barely had to open my pocket book which makes it even better!

That’s a wrap for today y’all but make sure you head over to Jen Rizzo’s blog first thing tomorrow morning for Thursday’s tour kickoff!

If you’d like to see more of our home tour or our recent projects you can find them here and here.

The Best App Ever (And Not the iPhone Kind)

Good morning friends! I’m getting ready to wake up your taste buds this morning. Oh, okay, finish your coffee first!

This appetizer is so easy that there isn’t even a recipe to share! But…it’s a total foodgasm (sorry for that but it’s THAT good)!!!

We discovered this pre-meal heaven while visiting some friends on vacation at Tybee Island, GA who served this when we came over for dinner for the first time. It was so good I was shoveling it in my cake hole as fast as I could, completely embarrassing myself in the process :) Sorry Steiners :)

So, I know it might sound a little odd but this combo is perfection and I meant to post about it long ago! So drum roll…it’s raw honeycomb (this is the key), goat cheese, crackers or bread, and pear or apple slices (optional).

Kidding, not kidding! Grab a cracker, slather it with goat cheese, then honey, top with a fruit slice if you prefer, then join me in heaven!

Honeycomb app

The raw honeycomb is the key and it’s actually hard to find. Regular honey will do in a pinch but there is something about the freshness of the honeycomb and the wow factor of your serving it to your guests!

We buy ours from Savannah Bee Company (one of our favorite spots) when we are in Savannah or Tybee and it’s by far our favorite. The Savannah Bee honeycomb is hard to find but we’ve lucked out and found it in one or two select stores in Charlotte. But we recently found some at the farmer’s market that is fitting the bill when we run out!

I’ve found that Trader Joe’s has the best price on goat cheese by far. If you’re not a goat cheese fan, blue cheese compliments the honey just as well and we love it too!

This little treat is great on water crackers but also delicious on a thin sliced baguette!

IMG_4708

IMG_8816

IMG_8832

IMG_8836

Let’s make a deal, next time you have a dinner party or friends over try this and let me know how it goes! I love it that much…not sure I’ve ever been this confident about anything before :)

Okay, maybe I’ve gone a little overboard but seriously this has become one of our favorite snacks when we want something a little fancier and is definitely a ‘go to’ appetizers to server guests!

Does it sound awful or do you think you’ll try it? You trust me right :)

I hope you guys have a great rest of the week and don’t forget to tour all the amazing room tours on the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours this week! the schedule is below and you can see my favorite room on Wednesday!
