Beautfiul Sunsets

The sunset was so pretty tonight so I quickly grabbed my camera and took a shot of the barn outside our back window. This picture is SOOC (straight out of camera). The sun was shining on it just perfectly!

Inexpensive DIY shutters

So happy with our latest project. It was super easy and the best part is that it cost less than $100 for all 14 shutters!

Here's how:
1. Measured all the windows from top to bottom
2. Went to the hardware store and bought 1 x 6 boards
3. Cut 4 boards to size & 2 boards across (one on top, one on bottom)
4. Screwed together
5. Painted with flat black exterior paint and hung up!


                                                                                  ...and AFTER!

Re-purposed crib

Easy peasy pinterest-inspired project I'm telling ya! and cheap. Total cost was less than $30.00 (approx $4 for the can of chalkboard paint and 3 chairs at a local thrift store for $7/each). The boys are getting so much use out of it. I'm really glad I did it! :)
