DIY Gold Etagere Bookcase

I've been in love with the gold etagere bookcases for awhile now.  I knew I wanted to add one to my home.


And since, sadly, we don't have an Ikea nearby to buy Vittsjo shelving unit and give it a good spray paint, I went with the next best thing.

I found this used shelf for cheap.  It was perfect!

Yeah, I actually found two of the same one.  But the space could only fit the one.  
I'm okay with it.  
I actually love it!

What do you think?

I used this brand to get the finish I wanted.

Seriously.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping in!

St. Patrick's Day Party

As you know, yesterday was St. Patrick's day.
And, on a whim, I decided to throw my kids a fun party with a little dessert table.
I even created some quick printables.  

The best part?  I spent $10.  That's it.
I had everything else on hand and I planned it all in a day!

I whipped up some quick rainbow chip cupcakes with green frosting.

And I had some green fruit punch drinks on hand already.  I added a straw and clover to the front and that's it!

Green jello was already in my pantry with some leftover candy cups.

With jumbo marshmallows and some green candy melts that I purchased, I created leprechaun hats.  

The signs were fun to create.  I even whipped up some bunting for the table.

I used some green pails to hold treats, and added the green paper lanterns I had from a previous party.

The Oreos I already had, as well as some leftover candy melts.  So I whipped up some of these.

I also purchased green gummy candies for the kids.  But the mint lifesavers I had on hand.
Not bad for a day of planning and $10.  
And the kids loved it!

Stay tuned for the printables!
Thanks for stopping by.
