Jessica at Dear Emmeline updated an old side table in an great two-tone stain technique. Her Anchors Aweigh Side Table is so cute! This would be perfect for a beach house (not that I have one of those). I think this technique is awesome and would be such a great idea to use on other pieces of furniture too!
The second anchor project I am featuring this week is the tutorial Michele from Sew Sweet Vintage shared for making Anchor pillowcases. I think the pop of color with the anchor's is perfect for summer! I really like her idea to make pillowcases rather than pillows because they are so much easier to store away when the season changes! I think she styled them cutely with the heart pillow too! I wish I had a spare bedroom to make these for!
While I'm thinking of this fantasy spare bedroom, look at this amazing upcycled Upholstered Headboard Sarah at Creative Ramblings made! With the great $10 headboard I found earlier this year for my
master bedroom I don't need a headboard, but if I was in the market for an upholstered one for my fantasy spare bedroom, I would follow Sarah's tutorial! There are a million and one tutorial, videos, and posts out there (I'm talking about you Pinterest) on making an upholstered headboard and almost all of them begin with you purchasing and cutting lumber into the desired shape. Sarah instead, purchased a $20 twin headboard with a shape she liked and upholstered that! Genius, right?!
As always, I'm sharing my favorite recipe from the week. Living in New Mexico I am spoiled with great Mexican and New Mexican food. What I've found though, is that for native New Mexican's making great Mexican food is like any regional specialty, easy. So I've slowly started to pick up a few recipes. You know what makes great Mexican food? Grease, lard, fat. You name it, it's used. So when I found this recipe for Baked Chicken Taquitos from Laura at the Salty Kitchen I jumped on it because they aren't fried. I love taquito's (always have) so I can't wait to try this recipe!
Great projects this week! Be sure to grab my button if your project was featured!
