Cute DIY Sugar Skull Banner

A good friend of mine stopped by the other day with a super cute find from Cost Plus World Market. She had some cute square sugar skull fabric napkins. She asked me to make some thing out. I made this super cute banner. It was so easy and I just love it!

All you need is 4 of the skull squares, and a sewing machine or thread and needle will work.

Lay out the squares and measure how far you want them apart pin and sew.

Making something old, new again.

This weekend was all about one project, revamping our coffee table. I have hated this coffee table for so long, however, my husband loves it. Last week we finally agreed we needed to do something with. We wanted something bright, you know, to liven the room up. We went with a wonderful teal color. We also wanted something that looked shabby sheek. So, we go some chalk paint. We absolutely love the look of our table, and it was so easy to do.

I noticed there a few brands of calk paint out there. We went with American Decor and it worked great.

Here is what we used.

There are many way to make your own chalk paint, so,  you can make any color you would like. I just had a good friend of mine paint her coffee table a wonderful vibrant pink. It is a good way to add a pop of color to a room.

Here are some before, during and after photo of our table.
