peeps and updated coffee table pictures.

hello all.  wanted to show you a little banner i made yesterday.  can't remember where i saw a picture of it, if you know, let me know and i will link to them.  just know this was not my idea.  i went the simple route.  using glue and string.  the one i saw was sewn and had fancy ribbon.  i just wanted simple and easy.  modify this craft to your liking.  on with the pictures....


It's a Peeps banner ya'll!  love.  i made mine pink.  made a yellow one for my mama.  it's just felt, a simple bunny shape, yarn and sharpie for eyes and nose.  super easy.  i did 5 bunnies, because i have a doll house size mantel.  you could do more.  the bunnies are double sided so it can hang in a window.  easy peasy.


mine is far from perfect.  perfection is not what i am striving for.  cute and fast is.  so it is lovely for us.  like i said you could sew around each bunny, use cute ribbon.  whatev.  use what you already have at home. 

you might remember a while back i sanded down my coffee table.  when doing so i revealed many colors underneath.  nice.  but one of those colors, the main color was forest green.  i really am not fond of forest green.  we don't play well together.   i kept it that way for a bit, like 2 weeks, to see if it would grow on me.  it did not.  so i decided on the first nice day here in minnesota i would strip it.  here is a reminder of what the before looked like....


and here she is all stripped down...



the wood was previously stained a dark color almost black.  so i stripped it down to where the black and the oak show through.  beautiful.  i love how simple it looks now.  too busy before.  the child size windsor chairs also got an update with white spray paint.



so there ya have it.  if you don't like it the first time, try again.  it's only your time.  hope you have a great day.  the sun is shining here so that is a bonus! 

little mama.
