Some words, a vignette, and a runner

I have been showing some finishing touches I have done to my craft room lately. As I came down the bottom of the stairs it was plain and lacking some personality.  I had hung pictures in other parts of the room and basement, and I didn’t want the space to feel like a gallery.  I decided to get on my silhouette, and with my hubby’s help, I found my favorite quote and cut it out with vinyl.

Most of the words except the word create were cut out in Navy blue and I decided to do the word create in a gray color with a different font. I love this quote, and I found it very appropriate for my room.  I also needed a table for a lamp and some fun accessories, and I found just the one at Hobby Lobby for a great price. I packed it up in my car and it became part of my room.

I had bought a lace book mark in Belgium the last time I went, and I had an old frame in my storage room.  I sprayed the frame and cardboard in the back gray, and pinned the book mark into the frame.  We made a lamp out of that pretty gray vase. We just put a light bulb base in the bottom and screwed an Eddison bulb in  it, and it is awesome when it is lit up. I loved how the area turned out, but I felt it was lacking a little color.  I had some extra fabric from my curtains, and decided to make a runner out of it to add color.

I didn’t feel like getting my sewing machine out and sewing it, so I just frayed the edges and ironed it.  I love the pop of color and how it unifies the whole room.  I love walking down and seeing that fun display. It makes me smile every time.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
