So Crafty

I'm always inspired by my friend Molly, who makes cool things. It's not just that; she has a very creative mind and I run a lot of my decorating ideas past her. Anyway, here are 2 things I did on my very own:

Many of you may remember that in Orem, Joe insisted on putting a rug on the coffee table. I thought this was really dumb. Unfortunately, we couldn't find any coasters we liked for our side table, so I made one giant coaster out of FLOR samples. Same concept; much classier.


I made this shade in my bathroom to replace the gross doily-type that was in there when we got here. A total privacy shade isn't necessary since we're on the 2nd level, so I took the leftover material from our hem-them-yourself Ikea drapes, cut the fabric into strips, and hung them on a suspension rod. I kind of dig it.
