Weekend Warriors-Pinspirational June Day 1

We're back...The Weekend Warriors and this month's theme is "Pinspirational June." We will be bringing you some of our favorite pins we have discovered for anything from the home to yes, of course, the classroom. I recently moved and so I'm devoting day one's post to awesome pins I found for my new house. I literally decorated my house based on pins I found. Someone actually came in one day and said "Wow this is like walking through Pintrest. 

There is no way I can share everything I did in my new house so I picked a few of my favs. The first is my DIY crate coffee table with my cutie patootie dog, Tucker posing on the couch. This was so easy to make. You just take four crates (I got mine at Michaels) and stain them then screw them together. I found the feet at Lowes and just screwed them on. Last, get a vase to stick in the middle. 

The next Pinterest inspired idea were these baby gates. There is one at the top too. My hubby made these for me because you had to measure and cut wood which I'm not great at, but it was super easy fr him to make and looks so much better than the regular baby gates. 

We finally got around to painting my daughter's bedroom and playroom which was Pinterest inspired. We did her playroom in a coral/teal theme.

I saw this on Pinterest and LOVED it. A chalkboard for her wall. We just bought that chalkboard paint at Lowes and rolled it on then framed it with chair rail molding that I painted to match the coral. As you can see family wrote at the top and my lovely 2-1/2 year old's work is at the bottom. Ha!!

 Here is her bedroom. I wanted something to hang over her bed but not really a mobile since she's not technically a baby any more {insert sad face} I found this idea and bought these tissue poms on Etsy. Loved the way it turned out!

I had actually made this a long time ago which inspired the color choice of her bedroom {another Pinterest idea}. It was really pinned from an Etsy seller for a pretty high price so I whipped one up myself with the colors I liked. 

If you follow me on Facebook you can get these four sunshine sheets under the fan freebie tab! The frames were like $2 or $3 at Wal-Mart.

And last but not least, my favorite part of the house. This is right in the entrance. I got the red bookcase and lamp at Target and just added the rest. The frames just have fabric in them and I watched a you tube video on how to make a burlap wreath then hung it on a curtain rod.  I was thrilled with the way this came together.

  6. Oh my goodness, want to trade houses? Everything is absolutely beautiful!! That baby gate is way nicer than those ugly plastic holey things from Target or Walmart. That coffee table is amazing, and I'm pretty sure I want to live in your daughters red and teal bedroom. Ha! Beautiful job, Heather!
