I love some holiday decorations that can stay out longer than a month! This Burlap and Fabric Spring Wreath comes out just before St. Patrick’s Day and hangs around until April or May. With the natural texture of the burlap and the spring colors of green and white, it reminds me that longer days and vegetable gardens are just around the corner. Read on for directions on how to make your own burlap and fabric spring wreath.
Let’s talk chandeliers. With all the DIYers out there, and designers not afraid to use a pop of color in any space, it’s not surprise we’re seeing more and more demand for painted chandeliers in our Etsy shop. I’ve had a ton of comments and messages over the year asking me where I find my brass chandeliers, either new or old, to give a facelift.
We haven’t posted a ton of tutorials lately. Etsy orders started growing in January. I was hoping a “break” would come any day now so I could get ready for my wedding in Mexico at the end of the month…but alas, the orders keep coming in.
In the meantime, I just wanted to share this inspiring post with ya’ll. It is the Top 15 Happily Ever Afters, a fabulous collection of fun and funky furniture that got a little DIY ticket to a new life.
Here’s just a few nurseries I’ve done cornices for lately. This first one belongs to Ginnie, who contacted me for a cornice to finish off her funky nursery. I love that Ginnie wasn’t afraid to use a little color in her space and really go for a fun, inspired space. Thank you, Ginnie! It was a pleasure working with you!
I really am blessed to get to work with some amazing designers through my Etsy Shop, Simply Salvage. Take this pink and green girl’s room designed by Melissa of Melissa Lane Interiors for example. I LOVE stripes, the mix of mondern and vintage pieces, and the fun patterns on all of the fabrics she used around the room. What a fabulous space!

I love anything with a modern vintage feel, and I think this chandy fits the bill. It’s pretty simple, a black wire outside with a single white glass textured globe on the inside, but I love it. I found this little gem for $60 on our Valentine’s Day getaway to the Georgia mountains. (Yes I drag my sweet husband flea market shopping every time we travel)….keep on reading for the before and after shots, and how we transformed this vintage swag light into a funky chandelier.
