More DIY, morning room decor and dining set

It has been a busy few days. I have done quite a few of my DIY items and I love the way they turned out.

We ordered a dining table for our morning room. We already had  the chairs from 2 other sets hubby and I had so we only had to paint them.

My inspiration is at the top and the final finished product is at the bottom of this pic.

We had a mix of similar chairs. Hubby had 4 and I had 2. Thankfully, the table sits 6 so it was perfect. 
Before and after look of the chairs.

On the left of this pic was my inspiration for our bedroom art. They did theirs on wood boards but I used canvas instead. Also, since I am not an artist, I created my own stencils using MS Word, used a pen knife to cut out the shapes and then just painted over the canvas. Hubby will be hanging these up this weekend.

Also, on the left is the inspiration I found on Pintrest (my new obsession). I made the middle and right one. These are hung up in our morning room. It ties in all the colors. 
Yes, it is PRAY and then EAT. I know a lot of people will walk in and wonder why I hung up PRAY before EAT. It is a conversational piece. I'll just let them know I pray before I eat :-).


  1. great job!!! i love pinterest too, but i'm not so good at the follow through :)

    1. Yeah...I am guessing a lot of things I have pinned won't come to fruition. For now, its fun to pin :-)

  2. This is beautiful...You have a very beautiful home.

    1. Thank you! We are slowly but surely getting used to our new digs.

  3. Look at you! You are so crafty! I love what you've done.

  4. Look at you DIY queen over here. I am loving the results, you really followed the directions well. The table is awesome, loving the look. I still don't see that crooked P you were talking about but I guess you know what you are looking for :).

    I can't wait to see your pinterest stuff come together for JOE's birthday.
