Shabby Chic Banner

My crafting has taken a back seat to all the house fix-ups we've been doing. So I was VERY excited when I was able to combine my craftiness AND fix up my guest room space all at the same time.

When I was cruising the internet about a week ago, I found this really cute banner and class being offered by Donna Salazar. Such a cute little "Dream" banner.



Got me thinking.... what a cute idea for my 2nd Guest room. A very sweet lady, (Hi Bette and thanks again!), gifted me a lovely full size white iron bed. Its going to be the focal point of the room. Found some really cute bedding on E-bay, a cute little rug from Ross and using some old photographs, vases, etc. I'm transforming the room into the cutest little guest room you ever saw! Now, on to the banner.....



















And here is how this adorable banner looks all put together.



And look at these! Yesterday's trip to Ross "scored" me a couple of really cute vases with a rose on them. $8.99.... gotta LOVE that price!

And with hubby's help, we transformed them into cute little

Lamps!!

Yes they are two different sizes and we are running to another Ross in the area today to try and find another of the same size, but they turned out so cute!! He used a drill bit to make a small hole for the cord to come out in the back and bought a lamp kit and harp to finish it off. They are just PERFECT for the space.


Some of the supplies used in the banner:

Acrylic Beads - Blue Moon Lost & Found Collection, Star Charms - Blue Moon Tokens, Stickles - Cotton Candy, Crystal & Yellow , Crystal Effects, Dew Drops, Various Papers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Big Shot Stampin' Up Pennant Die, Stampin' Up 5 Petal Punch, Crop-o-Dile & Eyelets, Scallop Circle - Cricut - Mini Monograms, Alpha Circle on Pennant, Cricut - Simply Sweet, Buttons, Lace & Ribbon (Walmart)
