Favorite Find Monday – Farmhouse Cabinet

Before we get to today’s find, I’m sharing this great graphic that Hometalk will be sharing this week on their newsletter – 20 Gold Decor Accents for Your Home.  I curated the board and shared a few of its features last week.  Hometalk is such a fantastic site!

On to this week’s favorite find!  When you look at the pic, “farmhouse cabinet” is not likely what you see.  However, I think it has the lines and potential to be just that.  This was a Craigslist score 🙂

Hometalk Feature – A Hot Trend!

I woke up today, checked my email and clicked open my daily Hometalk update.  Wow!  Were those my stenciled walls front and center with “Will THIS Be the Hottest Trend of 2015?” written underneath?

Hot trend and myself don’t typically go hand in hand 🙂  My girls will find it extremely amusing!  What a great way to start the day!  Click here for the post and all the other great content that Hometalk has to share!

A Pinecone Wreath Plus Hometalk Holiday Crafts

I mentioned yesterday how my girls and I made a pinecone wreath last week.  For the amount of money (less than $10 total), this was a great project.  To get started you will need pinecones, a flat foam wreath shape, glue gun, spray paint, spray snow flocking and ribbon.  We walked up to our local school that is lined with pine trees and gathered our pinecones.  I then baked the cones in the oven on a foil lined baking sheet at 350° for about five minutes to kill any creepy crawlies.  It also melts off the sap so definitely use foil under the cones to prevent sticky sap on your sheet!Take your flat, foam wreath and spray paint it gold, green or any color to your liking.  You could also take ribbon and wrap it around the wreath and adhere the ribbon with glue.  This step is just so you won’t see the white foam peeking through the pinecones when you’re done.
