Christmas Signs

Lots of signs and lots of decorations happened this season. We started decorating for Christmas as soon as we finished eating the Thanksgiving turkey. I LOVE HOLIDAYS AND DECORATIONS! Remember I have a thing for twinkle lights and that does not help one little iota. So the house was decorated inside and out. This is just a few of the DIY’s we tackled for the for holidays. I also inherited a new decoration. It was this vintage candle holder that I added white paint to…of course. The word trees I dreamed up  and absolutely love them. I had to make one for me and one for a friend. These were fairly simply if you have the right tools. I love that they were a 1 day project. Quick and easy.

 

I figured I would share some of my other DIY’s and favorite areas of my house as well for the holidays.  Inside and out. I hope you all had a very happy holiday season fellow diy’ers. Happy Painting.

 

Blanket Ladder DIY

It’s been a busy month and I haven’t updated forever so with that being said be prepared to be bombarded by post in the next few days as I play catch. With projects, family, holidays, vacations and life there just didn’t seem to be enough time in the day.

Today’s DIY was a quick blanket ladder. It took maybe an hour to make including staining it. I love quick projects. Instant gratification is nice on occasion. Especially after some of the projects I did this last month.

The ladder I had some extra planks laying around so I showed my husband what I wanted and he put it together. I had most of it cut already. I love it. I think next time we will angle the ladder sides so it “v”‘s in more at the top and give it more the vintage look.
