I found the cutest fabric at a consignment store and decided to bring it home with me! I wanted to bring some more color into my foyer for the cooler months and this seemed to be the answer.
I wrapped my bench cushion in the fabric because I don't know how to make a custom slipcover for it. It works fine this way since I change it out alot anyway.
I added a few coordinating pillows and a throw.
And voila! I have a completely new look for the foyer.
If you don't know by now, I get bored very easily with the same look for too long. So, this is what I do. I change pillows, fabrics, lamps, anything that isn't nailed down to the floor. That's right! And if it is nailed down, I can always get my husband to help remove it if necessary. Nothing is safe from me!
This isn't all I changed either. I made my first wreath. Yes siree. I'm sure I'm the last person on the planet to have never made one before, but honestly, I usually just buy one instead. Well, that can get expensive! So.......for a mere $3.50, I bought this grapevine wreath at Walmart and added some stuff to it that I already had.
I stuck in the wispy Fall flowers and then used hot glue for my feathers.
I was originally going to do the entire wreath in feathers, but didn't have enough. Just as I was going to give up on the idea, I thought about doing this instead. I must say that I'm glad I did because I believe this is more interesting looking anyway.
Now I have a Fall wreath that goes perfectly in my dining room!
Now of course, all this decorating and crafting can make a girl hungry. So, what's a girl to do? Bake a cake! Ah yes. Doesn't everyone bake a cake after they've been on their feet redecorating and making crafts? But I have a little secret to confess. I cheated.
You didn't think I was Martha Stewart did you?! This is the kind I make. An easy box mix. And don't knock it till you try it. It's good.
Not only did I cheat with the mix, but also by just doing a sheet cake.
As you can see it gets eaten fast around here.
Don't worry though, I saved a piece for you.
Now, I'm going to go rest. It's been a busy day.
