DIY Pom Wreath




 I have wanted to make one of these Pom wreaths ever since I saw people making them last Christmas! Ha! Better late than never right?! Apparently there is a Pom Maker you can buy at the craft store but I found this easy and fast way to make the poms effective and cheaper!

Supplies
~4 Bundles of a thick (large loop) yarn
~Straw Wreath
~Hot Glue Gun
~Ribbon (optional to hang)






To begin making your poms wrap the yarn around your hand about 35-40 times.  For most of mine I did 37 wraps. Cut it free from the 
yarn bundle.  




Slide the wrapped yarn off your hand and place on top of a 8-9 " long piece of yarn.



Tie together the two end pieces




Slide your scissors into the looped yarn on each side and cut.  Fluff out the pom and cut any uneven pieces. 




There is your pom pom! 





I dabbed a bit of hot glue and held it on to my straw wreath for about 10 seconds.  You will make three rows of Poms on your wreath.  An inside row, a top row and the outer row.  I left my back of the wreath bare so it would lay flat on the wall.




It's amazing how it fluffs out and looks so soft and poufy! Fast, easy, cute and inexpensive!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…
