DIY Boot Cuffs / Boot Socks

Boot Sock

Fall is finally here! (well as far as fall goes here in Florida) so a mommy friend Amanda and I started trolling online for the cute socks we can wear with our boots a few days ago. We found tons of cute socks on Etsy (isn’t everything cute on etsy) ranging in price from $10-$24. While I accepted the fact that I would be spending that much on socks, Amanda stayed up until 3 am last night making some of her own. So thrilled with how awesome they turned out, we took another trip to our local Goodwill this morning in search of long sleeve sweaters and shirts! Costing roughly around $5 for material (lace, buttons, shirts, thread) or pretty much free if you have an old sweater in your closet and some sewing items, these socks are so cute and so fun to make!!!

If you would like to see how we made these, please see below!

You will need the following materials:

*Scissors

*Needle and thread

*Buttons

*Elastic crochet lace

*Sweater or long sleeve shirt

First cut the sleeves off of the shirt right below the shoulder seam.  (if you want the socks shorter you can always cut it down more)

Next, position the lace along the top (you want to use the tight end of the sleeve for the top of sock) and either by hand or with a machine, attach to the top of the sleeve. You can also sew buttons down the side or lace down the side of the sock.

And that’s it! Now put on them socks and go walk through some leaves in style.

Sideboard

BlogSideboard

I always have a mental running list of things I’m on the hunt for during my antique shopping trips.

1. Ironstone

2. Windsor Chairs

3. Farmhouse Tables

4. Sideboards

5. Granite Ware (berry buckets in white with black trim or grey)

6. Primitive Solid Furniture

I have been looking for the perfect sideboard for a very long time and while I’ve seen many I like alot, the asking price always stops me from handing over the cash. So while scrolling through our local craigslist the other day, I found one that was perfect for me for a reasonable price. I literally jumped up and down a few times and called praying it hadn’t already been sold. Thankfully, she had only put it on 10 minutes before and I had myself a winner! It needed a little airing out and lots of sanding to get the previous antiquing stain off of it but it’s a beautiful piece.

11081437_10153199942764394_6053728768474628316_n

I sanded it down, primed it with Kilz Primer and used my go to color Benjamin Moore Simply White

After 2 coats of paint I distressed it before applying a clear poly

So happy with the final results!

Antique Vanity Rehab

Friends on my Facebook and Instagram pages are aware of my obsession with buying old antique furniture mainly from my “Ooops I Did It Again” post. These pictures normally consist of me driving down the road with a too big for my car piece of furniture hanging out in the back and a “I cant help it” look on my face.  They mostly all resemble this..

10956752_10153247650574394_7427629454011577173_n

Or this..

11069398_10153199905239394_1779791860732910241_n

Whatever.. its my life. I’ll do what I want.

So I couldn’t resist when I was in Titusville shopping at one of my favorite antique stores and came across this beauty.

20511_10153124377839394_3541662188277972093_n

Although a little rough, this piece has so many great things about it like the condition, the ridges along the top drawers and its on casters! After sanding it and priming it, I pulled out my trusty paint gun and applied 3 light layers and finished it off with a clear poly.

Kitchen Hardware Update!

Our kitchen is by far my favorite room in our home and what convinced us to sign on the dotted line for our Sweet Magnolia. Thankfully, the previous owners had just completed a full renovation on it and we only needed to make minor cosmetic changes like light fixtures and such. We switched out the stained glass pendents over the counters for black farmhouse lights and I fell in love with the pop of black in the white kitchen. Loving the touch of black, I decided to add black hardware instead of the brushed chrome that the previous owners had installed. I felt confident in my decision until I priced the new black hardware and realized that my husband would kill me so.. I went to Home Depot and bought some black spray paint for metal. Now let me just say that I am not a fan of spray paint. AT ALL. I feel like I don’t have control, always  have drips and I just hate it. However, I found if I take a deep breath and just do many light layers I can tolerate it.

Here is the before picture of our kitchen with the chrome hardware. Yes those are dirty dishes in my sink…Oh the Shame.

1011708_10151662214199394_488542122_n

While I think the chrome is nice, it was just a little bland.

11021223_10153121635579394_8154958081077790343_n

And here is the after photo with all the lovely black knobs!

11825767_10153515718604394_7795458465706195341_n

I must admit that I’m happy that I went out of my comfort zone with the spray paint and really thrilled with how it turned out!

End of Year Teacher Gifts

I can’t believe Estella is finishing her first year of preschool. I was just starting to process this and now the school year is almost to an end. What? Where did the time go? I must say that Estella lucked out with her first year teachers and with so much appreciation to those special ladies,  I wanted to make them something special as a thank you for being so loving to my little one when away from home. Every spring here in Central Florida Estella and I like to go blueberry picking at a local farm close to our home. This year we made it out 3 times in their 2 month season and I believe I have enough blueberries to last until next Spring. Knowing that both of her teachers love to bake, we collected some special organic blueberries for their end of year gifts. I put them in cute little jars I found in the $3 bins at Target (gets me everytime) and put them in a burlap sack along with our favorite blueberry muffin recipe. The teachers enjoyed them so much that they didn’t have any left at the end of the day.

Easter Egg Craft

I love pastel colors. Love. I just prefer to live in black and white. So whenever I can add a pop of pastel color to my life I go for it. Since Estella is getting to the age where we can move past the footprint art (although footprint art is the cutest thing ever), we’ve been cranking out some cute home decor art. For Easter this year we decided we needed some pastel on our fireplace so we made eggs with embroidery thread and balloons.

What you will need for project:

* Water Ballons

*Embroidery thread (any wonderful colors you like!)

*Liquid Starch (1 cup)

*Flour (1/2 cup)

*Mini clothespins

Mix liquid starch and flour in a bowl. Layer thread around the edge of the bowl to prevent tangles and carefully push down into liquid mix. Blow up water balloon (I found if you don’t blow it too full it takes the shape of an egg.) Wrap thread around balloon making sure to crisscross the threat and making sure to wrap all around the balloon. Take a yard stick and use clothes pins to hold balloons in place over sink and let dry overnight. In the morning pop the balloons and the thread will stay in place.

Little Red Riding Hood

One of Estella’s favorite books right now is Little Red Riding Hood. So of course she told me she wanted to be Little Red for Halloween this year. I used a pattern for the cape in one of my favorite sewing books that my mom bought me when Estella was a baby.

12108800_10153672039324394_1525134517233967217_n

It has the cutest little sewing projects to make for the little ones and pretty easy to understand. You can find it here.

I was planning on making her dress, however, the only red riding hood fabric I could find online was a little expensive. So I found this cute dress (ALREADY MADE!!) and still paid less than I would have for the fabric and I got a little rest.

Baby Sprinkle

Since moving to Magnolia Street we have met so many wonderful families with little ones around the same age as Estella. One of these wonderful families are the Danes. They have a little boy who is one of Estella’s go to playdate friends so when she was expecting again, myself and another close friend decided to throw her a sprinkle for her baby girl. We decided to make the theme simply “sprinkle” and we showered her and baby girl with lots of love.

Above the dessert table I hung an umbrella and attached ombre raindrops hanging off of clear fishing wire.

Yummy homemade doughnuts

Sprinkled cake balls and cookies

oct2014 062AA

We even added a little sprinkle to the candles

I normally always prefer a mason jar to drink out of. I made tiny little clouds to the straws to write our names on.

In the Living room we added a few paper puffs and some of the raindrops.

Another lovely friend documented the baby shower for her blog The Decorina.  Not only is she really talented at taking beautiful pictures, she is also an amazing interior designer.

Valentines Day Diy Cards

I absolutely love Valentines Day much more now having a toddler. I think its the little red and pink sprinkles you can add to your sugar cookies and the cute little cards they get for one another. So this year instead of buying a box of cards for her to give to her little friends, we decided to make something special instead. And lets be real for a second.. I don’t think Ill ever buy cards from the store until she is in a class of 25.

Mermaid 2nd Birthday Party.

Estella is obsessed with mermaids and asked for a mermaid party for her 2nd birthday (proud mommy here). So I got to work on all things mermaid and it turned out great!

1622671_10152171654374394_1661973534_n

I made a banner shaped like seashells to hang above the dessert table and added clear balloons that looked like bubbles.

1888661_10152171659224394_1151681897_n

For Estella’s first birthday I bought this antique high chair and paint it every year to fit the new theme.

1604875_10152171654284394_407583895_n

The sand dollar cookies were too easy to make! Since I had so much baking to do for the party I just bought pre-made cookie dough (gasp) and added already slivered almonds onto the cookies before baking.

1656088_10152171654229394_395097183_n

For the mermaid cupcake tails printed of a mermaid tail outline and put a piece of wax paper on top of it. I then took melted Wilton Chocolate into a decorating bag and simply filled in the picture on the wax paper. After dried, they just popped off and I slid them into slits I made in the cupcakes. For the clams, I bought cookies at the grocery store, iced the inside with icing, used a little melted chocolate to hold the cookies open and placed a white round chocolate inside to look like a pearl.

12099_10152171654434394_97226771_n

I always like to make Estella a smash cake for her birthdays. This one I did ombre pink and added crushed graham crackers to look like sand.

1511474_10152171654119394_355145270_n

The mermaid pearls were my favorite thing to make for the party. I simply made cake balls (so excited I didn’t have to put them on a stick this time) and dunked them in melted Wilton Chocolate. In order to make them look like pearls, after the chocolate dried I sprayed them with Pearl Luster Spray. It gives this beautiful effect and truly looked like pearls! This product was kind of hard to find! I found that you can order them online or at a specialty baking store.

1011270_10152171654539394_135165315_n

The most exciting thing about this 2nd birthday was the fact that Estella could blow out her own candles! (tear)
