Babys Room

Baby's rooms have definitely taken a turn for the best its not your typical pink or blue anymore!
Such a updated color scheme for a baby's room that either  a little baby boy or girl can grow up and enjoy! Being a mom my self, I know babies could care less about the room anyways so it makes sense to make a room you enjoy being in your self!
Again fun rug for a little boy or girl that a little one can grow up and continue to enjoy!
Loving the green and the fun elephant art work!
The rocking chair!! Oh my gosh I want! Fun and Modern! Another thing that can grow with the child, because those babies don't stay babies for long!

New to me Chairs!

   Hey guy i know its been a while! The weathers been beautiful outside and I've been super busy! Here is one of my little projects.

I bought these vintage chairs for $5 at a yard sale! They were in perfect condition they just needed a little paint!

Why i chose blue i have no idea, I think its that theres nothing else in my home blue and thought it might be neat to have them kind of stand out! The great thing with these chairs is there super easy to paint and re-assemble so i can change the colors as often as I change my mood!

DIY Bird Fedders!

I hate throwing away things so when I saw this I knew I had to do it, best of all  I just cut a orange in half give it to the chicken and 15 minutes later the orange is completely cleaned out and with no mess!!! Also there light weight so they won't weigh down your tree branch's!

You can find step by step directions here

    I recently purchased a clematis vine that needs a home to grow on i don't want to just buy any old trellis thought since its going to be in the front yard I'm debating on just building one... So to get some ideas i set out on a search, heres a couple ideas...
This is the one that I'm Leaning towards, one because i like the modern clean lines and i because i think i can make this!

I like the modern craftsman design of these ones best thing is you can find them at Lowes pre-made!
Now I love this one i just don't know if it would go with the exterior design of the home!

DIY weedkiller

I like using thing i already have at home to do things it less expensive and this recipe is safer for the environment, i found this recipe in one of my favorite gardening books Garden Any were by Alys Fowler

All you need is:

4 Cups of vinegar
Half a cup of Salt
A couple Tbsp's of dish soap

Once the salt is completely dissolved you can either spray or wipe it on the leave of the weeds, now be careful can be deadly to surrounding plants. It also works best in sunny conditions.

Living Wall

This is my first attempt at a living wall i just used all old material i  had laying around the house.

I used a old picture frame i had in my shed for the frame. I covered the top in moss to keep moister in the soil and to hide the nylons hopefully the plants will fill in so i won't need it anymore.

Under the moss i used old nylons to keep the soil more in tacked, I used chicks and hen and 2 other typed of succulents i had from my garden.

I used some gardening mesh and a layer or phone book paper for the back. I'm going to cover the back with a plastic to keep the moister off the wall. I have to give the succulents a couple weeks to root before i hang it.
