Patio Udgrade!

The Girl Creative

This weekend I decided to add a little fun to our patio... I did not buy a single thing for this project! I used everything I had laying around the garage!

Here is a before of the patio...




Now, here is what I did to the pillows...



I printed some images on Microsoft Word, cut them out to use as a pattern. I printed a Dove and the letter 'A'.


I put the images over burlap and painted them on with a creamy white paint...










Next, I cut the burlap into small squares and used hot glue to attach the pieces of burlap onto the pillows that I already had!




So, the final pillow product cost $0!

Burlap Monogram Frame

Photobucket



I found some left over fabric in my guest closet and wanted to create an entryway
decor for my Mom....





So I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a frame 50% off ( love that sale!).

I used the cardboard from inside of the frame and began by covering it with the blue damask fabric and hot glue!



Next, I cut a smaller piece of burlap, about 6x8. I painted the "H" on the burlap with bright white paint. Then I used hot glue to stick the burlap on top pf the damask fabric. I just printed a letter "H" from the computer, size 550 - font Harrington and cut it to use as a stencil!



VIOLA... Here is the final product! Total Cost $8.66

Ace's New Bed



I was reading one of my favorites.....





and I loved the idea of turning an unwanted end table into a dog bed!

So... I found this at Goodwill for $15!




I began by painting the legs and sides with this...





(Flip the table upside down to look like a four poster bed...)
Next, I added a regular pillow, decorating with stamps to give my little man a comfy place to rest! Here is the final product! Total cost: around $25!
