DIY Decorating Ideas


Me and Mrs. Jones………I couldn’t resist. Heather is the queen at DIY Decorating ideas and coming up with a unique spin.

OK, I hope you’re prepared gasp a little. Heather has lots and lots of wonderful things on her blog. I had to stop myself grabbing photos to use. She is so resourceful. She’s another blogger I’m sure we’d be fast friends if she lived next door. We’d probably have our own painting furniture business.
She even paints pumpkins. Doesn’t this look awesome? If I remember right, she had this in a birdbath first, then moved it indoors. This is giving me some ideas for my Thanksgiving centerpiece right now. Can you imagine this in the center, then a trail of the smaller ones with fall-ish garland…….a few nuts here and there……..candles……Can’t wait.

Speaking of table settings! She posted this below yesterday. SHE SPRAY PAINTED THAT CHARGER PLATE WITH CHALK BOARD PAINT! Sorry, I didn’t mean to yell, but things like that make me a little excited. I am thinking about doing that too……….or I might go with a creamy color and distress them. But I love the idea of writing the name. Here’s an example of one of her “projects”………… Even I would have passed this baby up. But wait……….

Helloooo……. cute little chair!

More more more! WOWZA! You know how I LOVE before and after shots. They make my heart skip a beat.And this brilliant idea! I have been wanting to do something like this in my laundry room. The wrapping paper rods. If I could make room in my scraproom, I would put it there. Switching gears……….

Not only can she decorate and paint furniture……….That Mrs. Jones can throw a party. Apparently it’s all about the details. And I keep thinking that if I throw a cake on the table with a few candles, a few balloons, I’m doing good. :)

I love the Latrine sign. And the present area. Looks like such a fun party for a little guy. Heck, it looks like a fun party for me.
And what I love the most about this party, is that everything looks do-able…….for a fairly crafty person. It’s just having the ideas is my problem. Using old pallets for a fort……….brilliant!
So when you get a chance, head over to see Mrs. Jones……..Heather……and the rest of her great photos! I stopped myself with 11 photos, but there are so many more.
She also has two cute Corgi’s! Have I told anyone lately that I want a corgi? I do………..but my husband doesn’t. :)
