We have been so busy this weekend!!!  After we seen what Traci did over at Beneath My Heart with the tile coasters, we had to put a new spin on the tiles and make some cute wall hangings.

We used 3x6 white tiles from Lowes and some scrap booking lettering we found at Wal-Mart.

We then put a layer of Mod Podge on the tile and put the stickers on.  After we let the Mod Podge dry for about 10 minutes we added another layer that would stick the ribbon to the tile.

(this is a picture of Sarah's tile, she just cut out sayings from occasions vellum we found at Wal-Mart, same steps apply)

We let the Mod Podge dry really good before folding the ribbon hanging over and applying the hanger.  We just used a glue gun to do this.

We are very happy with the out come of our wall hangings.  On Kelley's "Live, Laugh, Love" tiles she hot glued a red flower she pulled from a flower arrangement she already had to one corner of the tile. 

Sarah did the same steps to make her wall hangings.  The larger tiles you see are 6x6 and the smaller tiles are 3x6.


Kelley made 2 more with the 6x6 tiles but hid the hanger.

We hope you like our projects!!

So i have lived in my house for about a year now, and this area has always bothered me. Its an awkward space that cant be a living room cause its too small(and i have a living room downstairs), but couldn't be part of the dining area cause its too big and weird.  Its also the first thing a guest that came to my front door would see. I never knew what to do with the area so i left it blank and bland.


(please forgive the horrible pictures, picture taking is a skill i have not mastered yet :) )

Until my almost mother in-law(i call her that cause i am not married yet but have been with my boyfriend for 7 years, so they are family to me with out the ring)gave us a love seat that has a brown cover on it.

(i left that little corner up so you could see that it has a regular couch cover on it)
She also gave us the pillows that are on it. So i put this love seat in that area. It did help with the blahness but it needed something more.  Now, downstairs i had an extra end table that i had just sitting in a corner.  The living room suit that i have is also that brown color so i also had a lamp to go on the table, and i also pulled a photo from my bed room to add as well. Here is what the table looked like with the couch.

I found the picture above the couch in my basement, its one my mother gave me when i moved out.  But to me it still looked blah.  Not enough umph yet.  So i remembered that i had some vases that i could put some eucalyptus i had on hand in on the other side.

Ok now were cookin!  I had a rug with the colors that would just tie everything together downstairs.  So i pulled that up and i love the outcome.


I added the throw to pull the color up from the rug and there we have it.  A new space that i love and i didn't spend a dime.  Thanks to my almost mother in law for the couch that made it possible. 

I hope you enjoyed this transformation and will begin looking around your house for treasures you didn't even know you had.
