A Few DIY Projects

So there is this thing called Pinterest. Maybe you have heard of it?! Of course you have it comes up in most conversations (along with Facebook). Well my about me says "I have good intentions." It is so very true. I pin all of this stuff in anticipation of actually doing them...but I don't do it! Oh you know you're guilty of this too.

But, since moving into our new home I really want to decorate. One thing I don't want to do is spend a bunch of money. So I am tackling my Pinterest inspired projects. Anyway I actually have made a couple things and I want to show you! I am not a expert DIY'er but I gave it a crack and I'm pretty happy. Here are a couple pictures.

For Christmas this past year our family did DIY gift exchange. I made this LOVE sign and Alexis' got it. I love what she did with it and I believe I have the perfect spot for one. I might have Jess build it though. It was a tough one to work out but I love the end result.

"Your grace is enough." This one hangs in our dining room. It's not my favorite but I had to free hand it because I don't have a stencil that would look good. This will do for now. I used wood for this sign as well. Since Jess has been home a lot lately I enlisted him to do it. I know I could have done this on my own though;)

I knew I wanted a pallet sign somewhere in our house. I decided on one for the bedroom. I was browsing Pinterest one day and saw this saying. I knew I had to do it. It pretty much sums up my love for Jess. I made this one from a pallet. I actually did this one on my own.  

I did take before pictures and stuff. But I wasn't sure if you guys would want all of that. So if you want me to explain what I did any further holla at me. 


Thanks for reading, we love feedback!
