Check out these greek key pink velvet throw pillows trimmed out in a navy velvet ribbon greek key. They are for a clients formal living room...every formal living room needs some velvet right? especially pink! I'm excited to see how they fit into her new space!
after cutting out a 16" x 16" square of the pink velvet I used a template(out of cardboard measured to make each greek key equally) to trace the pattern onto the pillow, a trick my Mom taught me which is a huge time saver! Thanks Mom!
Having the pattern traced on made it much easier to sew the greek key around instead of having to pin the ribbon down
Then use a straight edge to fold the ribbon over to make a clean right angle...another Mom Tip!
This tip makes life SO much easier!And makes the greek key turns perfection!
The keys seem a bit bunched, but they will smooth out once in their new homes! Sorry the pics are a little dark I promise some brighter ones! more pics to come!
Over the weekend we celebrated my little sister and her fiances engagement! The theme we came up with was "from Maine to Maryland" since Chris is from Maine and Cate is from Maryland. The color scheme is black, white, and gold...Check out the decor!
check out the runner my Mom made to go with the color scheme
we had Maryland crab dip for Cate
and Maine lobster dip for Chris
I added streamers to the bay window...as some of you have read before...streamers are cheap and add a fun party decor to your home!
the lobster and buoy pillows were a hit! I custom painted these for the couple as their favor from the party!
we made a custom drink bar featuring the couples fav drinks...which was a hit!
and the custom "Maine to Maryland" favor cups are a great way to incorporate your theme, use at your party, and send home with your guests!
I was hired by a client to paint these amazeball side tables! They are heavy duty and great quality. Their finish needs a fresh coat of white paint and they will be good as new! Love these guys...can't wait to make them up!
Hey Notebook readers! I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving filled with safe travels and full stomachs! I'm sitting on the couch looking forward to lunch and an incredible turkey leftover sandwich.
Happy Friday Notebook Readers!
Enjoy the holiday weekend with your friends and family!
So pumped about the outcome of this DIY project! As some of you have read last week I saw these buoy throw pillows on Etsy that I loved and after receiving some free cream linen from my amazing mom I gave it a shot! Check out the results!
Sorry about the upside down picture but my comp is being crazy this morning. Anywho I did a band of navy and red for these pillows that I am gifting to my sis and her fiance. The zip codes I painted on them are of his zip in ACK and ours in Lewes. Such a fun project...I ready to make some more custom ones!
Entering into the holiday season boy and I always love to decorate! It is all about details! One of the most important decorations for us is the front door wreath! It is one of the first things your guest look at...check out some wreaths I found that are contenders this year!
Calling all renters! Checkout these amazing adhesive wallpaper designs by MUR! It is a renters dream to spruce up the walls and when its time to leave...just peel them off and bring them with you to the next place!
I'm so excited to try to make these buoy pillows tonight! My little sister got engaged and is having a party over Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate! Her soon to be hubbie is from Maine and we are from MD. SO I thought it would be cute to do a set of pillows, one with a lobster and one with a crab, as well as these buoy pillows!
Her fiance actually summers in Nantucket and we have our house in Lewes so I may use those zip codes! More pics to come!
I love placing servers and other long tables behind couches to create some detail and interest and more importantly light or height! I saw this last night and I just love the idea! So simple and so necessary for small spaces!
They took a 2 X 6 from any local hardware store, stained it, and hung it by L-brackets to their wall creating a custom sofa table for their space!
Just another way to save space, create a point of interest, and save $$$!
