Another Pinterest Challenge

The girls over at Bower Power and Young House Love
are hosting another challenge.

Here is the summer edition.

I need things like this to get me moving again. 
I'm a challenge girl.
A list girl.
A deadline girl.
In other words, I'm not very self-motivated. :)

Here are some projects I've been working on around here...

1. I saw this on Pinterest:
$300!
What!?
Burlap is CHEAP, people!

Anyway, I covered an old lampshade:
Note to self: do something with that garage sale end table. 


2. I've seen many pins on making fabric roller shades.

So I gave it a shot:
Do you see the snow?
We're having a "blizzard".
Annoying.


3. I also love all the cute jewelry organizers I see.

I've been using a thread holder for jewelry for a couple years now.
It works great!
But, as we all know from Pinterest,
most things can be made cuter with spray paint.

Before:

After:

Ta-da!
That's all for now.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! I love all of these projects!!! I'm still living with a few of the previous homeowners window treatments, and that roller shade is so inspiring!

i was just showing Nurse Shannon how talented you are!! I seriously wish I could do half the stuff that you do.
You inspire me...even though I know I will never get around to doing any of these fun projects.
Love you!'-V

You go girl! I just love all the stuff you've made. In fact, I've been thinking about all the same things!

I'm making a lamp shade out of a paint drop cloth
just finished a jewelry organizer out of window screen and an old frame, and I'm thinking about roman shades . . . but I want to try making a roller shade. Where did you find out how to make one?

I wish you lived by me, we would have SO much fun!

Jealous it's snowing so hard. I love the first blizzard. That's a call for chili. :)

Three projects!? You're on fire!

I love every one if them, and especially that burlap lamp. So simple, yet so effective!

Song, I looked at a couple tutorials and then just winged it. I used hot glue to glue the edges of the fabric to the curtain. One tutorial used fabric glue. It's not a shade we open and close a lot. I don't know how it'd hold up to a lot of use. :)

Nice work!!
$300 for that shade is ca-ray-zy.

And, um, snow?
Really??
Also ca-ray-zy.

Thanks for stopping by Melissa! I hear you on the endless projects - I'm sure our house will never be "finished." I had no idea about homeownership either! hahaha :)
