DIY: Pretty in Pink-Vanity Makeover

Knock Knock. Who’s there? Jaderbomb. Jaderbomb who? Jaderbomb .commmmm

Haha, can you tell I am having issues today! That is probably because I have been MIA for a little while. I am totally not used to this “not posting everyday thing”. When did “life”, ya know “the real life” take over so much? Oh I know, it’s always been there but NOW it’s just way more advanced. It’s like I am living in HONORS life. (teehehe)

I could not wait to share this with you. I hesitated because it did not come out like the vision in my head, however I am falling in love with it as each day passes. It’s kind of like a stray dog you take in. In the beginning you like it but once you get to know it you FALL IN LOVE. This PINK vanity is creeping very slowly into my FULL heart. Ashy said it looked like a pepto bismol vanity but she thought it was beautiful. (Oh and she said it could be purple and she would not care, as long as it makes me happy). Insert BIG smile! Plus it has a {{{ sex in the city shabby chic }}} feel to it.

In my head I had this vision of a soft distressed pink vanity but once I started painting it I figured I would leave it BOLD and BEAUTIFUL. So put on some shades and come into my pink world Jaderbugs!

This is the wonderful Pepto Pink I was telling you about. Just for the record Martha Stewart had AMAZING colors and you can check them out at Home Depot (click link to check them out)! They are so smooth. Since I was a little girl I loved PINK and figured I would go ALL OUT with this pink! Ya know, take a chance and do the complete opposite than what your head is telling you to do. It’s the greatest feeling ever!

This is what the vanity looked like before. Boring and Blah. A friend of mine gave me this and I fell in love since the first day. I saw so much potential in it. Ya know Jaderbugs, the good thing with wood is you can ALWAYS change it up. So when I get tired of PINK I will do something new!

If you are painting a piece of furniture you want to lightly sand it to take off that top coat of paint or polyurethane. Sanding it will roughen up the wood and allow your new paint to stick easier.

I told ya! It is PINK!

SEE! I told ya it was pink. I personally love mixing gold and silver but if you don’t like that you can add whatever dressings to your vanity. I have a little fur to soften it up and I thought one of my watches looked great as deco! There is a little gold basket on it which I will be posting about that later on today. Whatduhyuh think! I thought about sanding it all over to make it look all used up and bring out the “vintage” in it. Maybe when I get tired of it I will do that! Don’t worry, I will surely post changes to this sucka if they happen.

 See, Pepto Pink is totally in!!! Check out JENNI KAYNE and REFINERY 29!!!

I have some fun crafts in my studio just beggin for me to take pictures of them and put them up for you, if only they could do them! That would be GREAT! Here is a song that will make you feel as beautiful as this pink vanity makes me feel:

Thinking I will never look at Pepto Bismol the same again,

Wowzers!!! I can’t believe it is already THURSDAY!!! RIGHT! I have been having so much fun making all of these crafts for you {{and for me}}!  The other morning while I was making my coffee I ran out of creamer. {wahhhhh}.  So the typical routine is to throw the empty bottle away, right! That is exactly what I would have normally done {UNTIL} my lightbulb went off! I thought “how cool would it be to use these instead of throwing them away..
And here you have it! JUST FOR YOU my little jaderbugs.
I hope you enjoy!!!
Ingredients:
 The pieces do NOT have to be a certain size.  Use the size you like.
  Are you having fun yet? OH and I am using “sparkle” Mod Podge!!!! When it dries it is full of GLITTER!!!
  Don’t worry about being perfect! It’s about having fun!!!
 This is what it will look like still damp!
 OMGJB {{ohmygodjaderbomb}} HOW FLIPPING FULL OF CUTENESS  ARE THESE LITTLE SUCKERS.
Wishing my coffee pot could bring me another cup of coffee,

REVLON NAIL REVIEW!

So, I had to test this color to see if it was as beautiful ON the nails as it is IN the bottle. I’ve never had “green” nail polish. You would think with Mardi Gras I would have but, no. Well that was my answer a couple of days ago. NOW, I am in {{major}} love with Revlon’s new green nail polish. I am wondering if my eye sight buds changed in the last 7 years… Ya know, like taste buds do! I don’t even like the color green. How can I love this so much? I EVEN painted my toes!!! (mouth open)  Can’t type too long because I have about…10 minutes to get er dun but I promise to write longer tonight!

This is REVLON’S NEW COLOR: POSH

It’s really hard to tell what the color looks like perfectly but trust me, it’s so rich looking. I know, who woulda thunk it!


Please forgive my ugly crafting hands! I lie, they are gorgeous….haha! But wat I really want you to look at is the nails. I can’t explain how pretty it is in person. This new shade is so amazing, I didn’t even have to put a clear coat on top. It literally dried that good! It seems to have a great shine to it on it’s own.

Trying to stop staring at my awkwardly but amazing hand pose,

I really like your peaches wanna shake your tree

Jaderbugs! How are ya!!! I fell like it’s been forever but I promise I still love ya! I have been so busy with fun and exciting things (don’t worry I will share as soon as I can) that it’s been keeping my from blogging as much as I should be. I still think about ya every day but I can’t pull the all nighters anymore. Martha wore me out, Shhhh!! HaHa! Wait till you see the felt balls I am making right now! I know you will love it! OH and I will soon be posting a tutorial on how to paint black and white stripes onto a wall! Just wait till you see that, firecracker! I ran {not literally because I am too tired} across these pictures from Christmas and I totally forgot to post them! I know our friends at The Big Peach Antiques would be so sad if I didn’t post SOMETHING from our exciting time there! If you ever pass by an antique store take the time to drop in. You really never know what you will find!

Do you remember last year’s trip to the store? If not you can check it out HERE!

Make sure you also check out their facebook page!

I love this sign above the door. It’s on a cozy little ironing board. I have one (I think it was for my maw maw and paw paw) and I love it. I even got a piece of glass cut to fit the top so I can protect the wood! You could use this to display all kinds of goodies on! Ill take picture of my board so you can see!

I just loved this ash tray. I don’t smoke but if I did I would surely use one of these suckers. It’s so vintage and cute! The real color is a re-donkulous shade of lime green!

Would ya check out this bottle of pepto! The glass is turquoise and so pretty! I would surely drink WAY more pepto if it came in a bottle like this! (hint hint)

Do you remember those BIG LONG MATCHES? Omg, if you do then you have to tell me where you get them! I remember when I was little we used to light our fire place with them! I just love this memory!


We found this REALLY big bow and decided to wear it like a real Georgia peach would wear it… HAHA

Here is seester with her version of the BOW! So much fun, I wish that day would of lasted longer!

Too bad I didn’t get a picture of me sporting a (very old) mink coat, a nasty OLD hat, a beaded purse and a big ole smile. Seester told me to hurry and take the jacket off because there might be bugs hatching in my hair. Yes, it was old. Yes, I think I peed in my pants a little laughing so much. Yes, I will do it again next year!

This store is HUGE and it took us like, um….. 3 hours to get through it! Don’t you worry though, we had gummy rock candy to make our trip better!

Wishing I had a time capsule and 10 extra bags of rocks to eat,

DIY: Mardi Gras Bead Onesie

Happy (almost) Mardi Gras! Living in the SOUTH all of my life I got to experience the best of MARDI GRAS, year after year. I think most people in the world refer to New Orleans when they think of Mardi Gras. Lafayette gives New Orleans a run for it’s money! I grew up knowing that when Mardi Gras comes around it’s time to PARTY. Lemme tell you, people in the SOUTH can drink. Probably too much. I really love Mardi Gras for the Krewes, Balls, Parades and the best parties. 

What Mardi Gras is also known for is the BEADS!!!! I know you heard of what we do, right? It is “known” (fine it’s TRUE) that women AND men will do anything to get a bead, including lifting their shirts. Ya know, it’s like a free peep show, realllly free. Just warning ya now, your picture can appear all over the world in like…5 minutes so make sure if you DO lift your shirt that it is a bead with diamonds in it!! HAHA

During this holiday season you will see EVERYONE walking around with loads and loads of beads around their neck. It’s kinda like bad manners if you don’t have at least ONE bead around your neck. I found some pictures of me and some friends in New Orleans last year on my computer and I got to thinking. I know babies start young here and I wanted to create something that is super easy and ANYONE can do! Ya know, it’s prolly not the safest thing in the world putting loads of bead around an infants neck. JS

Let’s get started because I am ((((aghhhh)))) so excited!!!

Grab some “all in one” get ups!

Of course I used Martha Stewarts new line of paints. I got them from Michaels Arts and Crafts and they are AMAZING!

These are the colors of the paint used for this project. Make sure you note that some are glitter, high gloss and metallic.

Just in case you don’t know, her new line of paint can be used in multiple ways. One way that I love the most it being able to use it on fabric. Grab some fabric medium and follow the directions. It’s super simple and you can put ANYTHING you want on fabric!

Your MAIN tool though is this sucker! Yes! Can you believe it! Just a simple pencil.

I have these little trays I use for paint but if you don’t you can use whatever is laying around. A paper plate works great!

Just dip your eraser into the paint.

I put a piece of paper in between the two layers so the paint wouldn’t bleed through.

Start making dot’s. If you notice I am making a “eraser” bead necklace. How fun!!!! OH wait till you see the end result!!

This is what it should start to look like.


Doesn’t this look like something you could just eat up!

I know you are like… OMG!! This just makes me feel so happy inside. Oh, did I mention it’s a little safer than REAL beads choking a baby’s neck!!!

So this little get up is 18 month’s. I am doing a quick GIVEAWAY. If you want this or know someone who would like it then SIGN UP TO WIN IT! Plus it’s super fun to win things! 

To enter the GIVEAWAY you will need to leave a comment to this post and tell me why you love this onesie, why you love Mardi Gras or your favorite memory of Mardi Gras. If you have NEVER experienced Mardi Gras then just tell me what you like about this cutey patootie outfit!

Jaderbugs! That is up to 5 entries!!!! GOOD LUCK AGAIN!!! It will end on Saturday!!!

Trying to hurry and finish this post before my computer dies, 

Howdy Hoe Jaderbugs!!! It’s 2012 and I am so excited that I am healthy, happy and hibernating…..it’s sorta cold I tell ya! I got some leopard slippers for Christmas so I actually have a legit “excuse” to wear them. Living in the South you don’t really wear slippers for warmth. Christmas was uh-mazing. I got to spend a lot of time with seester and that is always a bu-last! It’s kind of bitter sweet getting to see her and then parting from her and my babies (god children). If only they didn’t live like…. a BILLION miles away.

We did have a blast though. We did a FUN photo shoot and let me tell ya they are HAWT. I’ll post a few of her that I have edited for you to see her. SHE IS A GEM! So beautiful! 

cheese lights 

Enough about me, how has your TUESDAY been?  I hope it has gone a little smoother than mine.  Thank GOD (for real)  I am still happy as ever! Just wait till you see the craft I am posting today.  It will surely  make you smile!

                                                I am using Burlap and a plain white sheet
                        Honestly, I didn’t measure because in this case it really didn’t matter.

But depending on how big your curtain rod is, that will determine how big you need to make the fold.

                                                   See! Nothing perfect. Just Shabby Chic is all.
                You want to make sure this measurement is pretty accurate because you will notice it.

Just sew the end  that is not finished (burlap) to the white sheet. Then fold over and iron.

 

How’s it coming!!!!

P.S.  How cute for real!!! I also made some fabric flags just for Valentines Day.
     P.S. Just a little something extra for you. These were totally NOT planned but well worth it!

They are under my sink.

Cutsie Pootsie!

I hope you totally enjoyed this craft! I actually made these curtains over a year ago but wanted to “re-share” them with you! I figured valentines day is near and and they were just delicate enough for this holiday! 

Enjoying my night eating turkey bacon and watching cupcake wars,

Southern Living: The South’s TASTIEST TOWN AWARDS


OK everyone, Southern Living is giving different cities in the SOUTH a chance to win the title of “The South’s tastiest town” award.  Wanna know the best thing of all? Lafayette Louisiana is in FIRST PLACE right now! Louisville is right below us but with your vote we can stay on top!

Click on the picture that says VOTE Lafayette to go vote!

Here’s why Lafayette earned its ranking as one of the 10 Tastiest Towns in the South:

There are plenty of new reasons to linger in Lafayette. A new batch of homegrown chefs is delving deep into the region’s robust culinary roots, with stellar takes on Acadiana classics. Consider The French Press, where the vibe is hip vintage and the must-have dish is Sweet Baby Breesus (slider-size biscuits filled with bacon, fried boudin, and Steen’s cane syrup).

At Johnson’s Boucanière, Lori Walls serves homemade smoked meat and boudin, just like her parents did at their store in Eunice, Louisiana. Then there’s homecoming king Donald Link, who just opened his second Cochon here, Cochon Lafayette.

Cast your vote daily from December 22 through January 31 and you’ll help name The South’s Tastiest Town to be announced in the April issue of Southern Living magazine. Plus, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $2,500 cash prize for a trip to any Tasty Town of your choice. How cool would that be!

Let me know what you think about this! Do you think your town should have been on the list? If so tell me why! If you have EVER been to Lafayette tell me what was the best think you ever ate!  I can’t wait to see who wins! Don’t forget to click on the links to check these awesome places out!

MY TOP 10 of 2011

Can you believe it’s almost 2012. I think it kinda freaks me out a little. I remember 2000 like it was yesterday. Remember how everyone thought the end of the world was gonna take place in 2000. I never believed all of that. Maybe it is the way the human mind thinks. I am actually SO READY for 2012. I KNOW this coming year will be so much better than 2011. I am so excited for the fun and exciting things coming up!  This year is already starting off amazing but that’s ONLY because I make every situation in my life positive. Nothing is meant to take over us, but you have to remember that.  It can be very hard at times but you HAVE to know that you are better than what ANYONE thinks of you!  I actually love wifey’s quote “WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS”. Don’t you just love that!  What about the SAINTS! I am so very proud to be from LOUISIANA, lemme tell ya! I can’t wait for them to win the SUPERBOWL again.
