For those of you who follow me on Instagram (Lucky7design) , you know I recently downsized from a single family home and into a loft condominium.  I decided to revamp all of my decor and not repeat too much here in the new place.

Kinda Rustic Farmhouse meets Restoration Hardware & Anthropologie.... Honestly I get bored easily and I like my home to be eclectic and not just one style.

While out browsing in Home Goods....I spotted an awesome large piece of art.   When I looked at the price tag, I knew it was out of my budget.

 Now it's beautiful and worth it but I just had to stick to my budget because I had a long wish list for the new place.    So I decided that I could definately DIY this....

My plan:

Buy an inexpensive large canvas piece of art
Cover it up
Try to replicate the pattern of the inspiration piece

I immediately sent the above picture to my sister and told her of my plan.   She is the true artist in the family.....I just dabble.   She said go for it.

Not even 2 days later on Instagram there is a Sponsored Post for Home Goods.....guess what?  Yep, my wish list piece of art being featured.

                                                 Now it's on.....even more motivation.

          HERE IS HOW I DID IT:

My supplies
Inexpensive Painting
Spray Paint
Putty Knife

Pretty but not for my decor

Step 1....I spray painted with copper paint

Step 2.....spackle

Almost done

I then mixed some metallic paint with the spackle

I wanted a simple design but needed more copper than the original inspiration art.

Here is my DIY art on the wall in my new place.   I wanted it specifically to hang over my new sofa

I have always been fond of fairy gardens, so this past weekend while shopping at Walmart I came across a little fairy garden starter kit.

I had my 9 year old with me and she is very into crafting projects...so we grabbed the kit and decided we would DIY some of the other stuff ourselves.

Here is what the girls and the starter kit looked like.....

The kit provides the fabulous glass bowl, a little resin bench, mushroom cluster and fairy of course along with a pack of pebbles and "fairy dust"

Basically all you need to add is soil and your imagination.

This is what my girls came up with....we purchased a sweet little cactus that looks like an ice cream cone and a fuzzy purple plant as they called it from Lowe's Home Improvement

The additional sign which says "Fairy Party Here" was purchased from Joann's.

I think I even enjoyed this more than the girls, Im also a huge Fixer Upper fan and love that JoJo's girls have fairy gardens in their greenhouse.

We've decided we are going to make a few more of these and go a little more DIY with it too.

Hope you all have a magical day!

Anyone who knows me, also knows that Im totally addicted to Joanna and Chip Gaines show on HGTV..... Fixer Upper.

Unless you've been living under a rock...you definitely know the show Im talking about.

Well...Im such a lucky girl.   I was selected to be on the Magnolia Story Street Team, our official name is the Shiplappers.   Im so over the moon about this, because not only do I love the show but Im also a big fan of JoJo and Chip and what they stand for in life.  I will get to bring you news about the book, release dates, events and everything Magnolia.

The Magnolia Story is going to be a best selling book for sure...I just can't wait to read it.  Maybe I'll take a trip down to Waco and discover all this inspiration for myself. 

Please go check out the preview of their story HERE and of course when the book is released you must get yourself a copy.
