You know I always like to keep you up with what Joanna Gaines is doing… so here you go… Jo’s Spring Tablescape. A simple but oh so fresh and fun setting. You can get this look in so many different budget friendly ways. Simple White Plates will work perfectly. There are Wood Slices available just about every where now… if you can’t get those… you could go for some rattan and woven mats. Then the napkins … you can use any fabric and create a raw edge. (for real budget friendly napkins… maybe try some soft muslim and give it a nice pastel dye like these pretty in pink ones)… then a simple faux stem of greenery twisted in a circle! You will love the way it looks and it is definitely a way to get the look for less.
The Navage Patch couple are at it again. This time they are going to show you how to take a a regular filing cabinet that you can find anywhere including your local Thrift Store and turn it into a Farmhouse treasure that will blend with your home decor. I would kick it up one more notch by adding metal card catalog labels to the front for even more of a Farmhouse Flair! Love it!
Sarah Joy is going to show you how to make this gorgeous Bathroom Fresh DIY Bath Tub Tray. How fabulous does this look! You deserve one of these and you can custom it to your style. One thing I have to say is HARDWARE will do 90 percent of the work : ) Then the color… any color… any paint treatment… any stain… oh the possibilities! This is a simple DIY… budget friendly… purposeful and oh so pretty! ENJOY!
