DIY Determined #14

Oh. My. Goodnessss. This project was so flippin easy that I'm already pondering my phrase for a larger one!  I've had the below painting of the sunflowers forever, I was about to give it away when I randomly found some inspiration that made me hold onto it for dear life.  The original project used song lyrics, but I opted for a line from Cinderella, which was my favorite childhood movie.  All you need is an old painting, some nylon letters and spray paint.  It's very hard to mess this up, now go, you don't need to be crafty at all to do this.
This is what made me save that painting,
it's so simple yet has SO much impact.

Frosting 101

Here's a fun tutorial on how to ice the perfect cupcake, frosting guru Glory (Glorious Treats) even offers her buttercream and cream cheese recipes.  After going through her entire blog I discovered she is the originator if the infamous Hydrangea Cupcake, this totally makes me want to whip out my baking pans, but my husband would kill me!

Pallet Gardens

I think it's safe to say that I've got a major obsession with pallets.  It all started with my coffee table and since then my ideas have literally multiplied.  I'm totally taking on this pallet garden challenge, I've luckily ran into an endless supply of clean, spotless pallets.  Total score!  I keep reading that "succulents" are the best kind of plants to use as they don't need a lot of sun.  Going to pick out the plants will be so much fun, I can't wait to get started!  Here's the best tutorial that I've seen yet,  check back for my results in the very near future.

Rejuvenated Rubbish

My pooch and I were strolling the neighborhood a few weeks back when I spotted this in someone's trash, instantly pondering a project.  While waiting for the weather to improve, I thought of so many other great ideas for this trashed piece of crib and now I'm pissed I left the other side on the curb!  I went with my initial magazine rack idea and I'm totally in love.  It'll be super handy in the salon and now the coffee table can finally breathe.
