DIY Crush: Pumpkins!

Every year, I am amazed at all the different ways bloggers decorate pumpkins.  I cannot believe how many ideas are out there for pumpkins.  And don't just use them for Halloween, keep them around for fall decor and Thanksgiving!  This year, I think I am decorating my Thanksgiving table with painted gourds- cannot wait!
The Merry Thought makes a Halloween basket chic!

I love these painted pumpkins and the glitter stem!

My favorite pumpkin diy from A Beautiful Mess's large collection of no carve pumpkin ideas!

I love, love, LOVE A Subtle Revelry's pumpkin lantern!

My pumpkin craft contribution this year- a neon pink pumpkin with a neon pink background!

Pink Pumpkins filled with flowers on top of candlesticks for table decor. I die.  Love everything in this post for the best party ever. Definitely check it out- so many beautiful details!

Check out last year's picks for my DIY Crush on Pumpkins!

Have a safe and happy Halloween filled with pink pumpkins ;)

DIY Toy Storage Crates Nursery


Another nursery DIY! Does this mean that 9 month old Colette has a completed nursery finally?
No... She has everything she needs, just not all the cute, carefully curated items her awesome Mom finds and makes for her!  But, I am on the road to getting there and I finally knocked one DIY off the nursery list- a toy storage crate!

Materials:

Unfinished Wooden Crate
Sandpaper
Primer
White Paint
Roller brush
Paints in color of your choice
Paint brush
Sealant
Casters
Screws or Nuts & Bolts
Spray Paint
Drill

The before pic! I picked up the wood crates at Michael's- they are a great deal with their weekly coupon.

For the design,  I was inspired by the Ferm Living Half Moon Laundry Basket for the sides of the crates.  See how they are all different sizes and kind of half faded, etc?  Well, that matches my freehand painting skills (or lack thereof) and I thought it would look great on the crates! (Poet, didnt know it...) 

I decided on a kawaii face for the fronts and back of the crates.  This is a fun part about having kids- you can go crazier and cuter with your designs than you would in your living room.


How To Make Toy Crate Storage:
1) Lightly sand wooden crate.
2) Apply primer (or a paint & primer mix)
3) Paint.
4) Let dry and paint faces and side designs onto crate.  (I used craft paints on this step)
5) Spray paint (use a spray paint & primer mix) casters your desired color.  Casters came in both black and grey at my Home Depot, but I wanted pink!
6) Screw casters into the bottom of the crate.

Fashion Crush: Fall Favorites


I have not done a fashion crush in sooo long!! I am reluctant to buy new clothes when pregnant and with postpartum weight, so "window shopping" just makes me sad.  Now, I am nearing my pre-pregnancy weight (although these last few lbs are being stubborn jerks) but I am sooo close to a much needed new wardrobe.

This slouchy sweater looks uber comfortable.

Pink tassel neclace- I own a similar one and get compliments every time I wear it.  The biggest fan is my 8 month old who likes to chew on the tassel. Win-Win.  Also, neon pink is not just for Summer. Pink is year round, baby.

Skinny jeans are a fall/winter staple- super easy and chic. Throw on boots and a sweater and I am out the door.

Navy blue nail polish- Nails should also transition to Fall- my nails are currently navy with one pink (I couldn't leave the pink behind) , I am loving the dark color and may take the leap to black soon.

Dolce Vita Heels- Shoes. My favorite. Although I wanted a cute bootie for the inspiration board, I just fell in love with these heels.

Marble is not just a home design trend.

Ok, I lied, purses may be my favorite. This purse from Anthropologie looks big enough to hold all my baby supplies and my heart.
