Taco Bell Addict

Finding new things to make for dinner is always a chore.  I feel like Andrew & I eat the same things every week!  Tacos, spaghetti, enchiladas, pizza... so I have be on Pinterest trying to find fun new recipes that we will both like.  Here's the latest gem I found and made!

It was a big hit with Andrew & my parents!  Enjoy! ~Brooke

Pinterest Inspired Lifestyle

I have finished another Pinterest project!  I'm on a roll lately....  This one I had pinned for awhile and now that we have our own home, I could finally do it!  Here's our chalkboard wall:

I bought the chalkboard paint and a high density foam brush (so the paint goes on really on smooth) from Home Depot.  We decided on the wall in our kitchen/breakfast dining area.  I then painted 3 coats and let it sit for 3 days to settle.  Then I covered the entire wall in white chalk and wiped it off so I wouldn't get any ghost marks after we wrote on it! :)

2nd Project of the Weekend

This one I was really excited about!  It was also inspired by Pinterest.  Since moving into our new home Andrew & I haven't really decorate the bedroom a lot.  I saw this and thought we HAD to do it!

This MR AND MRS project was very inexpensive.  I bought each of the letters at Hobby Lobby for less than $3 each.  I then bought the acrylic brown paint and paintbrushes and went home to work on it.  I put two coats of paint on it and made sure there wasn't any spots of the original wood color poking through.  Then when it was completely dry the next day, I hung them up with command stripes so they wouldn't ruin our wall!  VoilĂ  my latest creation!

House Number Sign

So lately I have had a DIY kick, so I'm now working on some crafts!  I am finished with the first one which was inspired by Pinterest:

What I used for this project: All purchased at Hobby lobby - a large letter A (for Anselmi), the number 19, acrylic paint, and pant brushes.

The other project I'm working on I will post soon!
