Hello everyone! I wanted you all to know that Eventful Existence has moved to a new site! I am so thrilled to have a self-hosted blog and be able to really make it my own now. I know it’s a hassle for you readers but I’d love it so much if you could hop on over to my new site and follow that! I promise, this is the last change for awhile! Love you all! 🙂
So, I saw this idea on Pinterest and totally wanted to make one! It was such an incredibly easy project and only took about 10 minutes (not including staining the wood)! The great thing about this project is you could make it as narrow or wide as you want, with as many rungs as you need! I made mine shorter but wide enough to really display the blankets. I used this stain by Rustoleum in the Kona color. It turned out so pretty and only needed one coat.
What you’ll need:
1 – 1 x 4 x 10 piece of wood
1 quart of wood stain
Long nails and drill
First: I had handsome cut the wood to the measurements I needed
Second: I stained the wood (this is for more than one project).
Third: I measured out where I wanted the rungs to go and made marks with a sharpie.
I wanted the rungs to be at an angle so it was a little harder to hold everything while drilling.
I did put 2 nails on each side of the rungs to keep them from rotating.
Final: Put your favorite blankets on display! I just love how this turned out. Ours is a little shorter and wider than the one pictured but I like it that way!
I just love the holidays for getting all dressed up and attending fun parties! I have put together a few cute outfits that are so festive! Remember – you don’t always have to go for red and green but I just loved these combinations so much, I didn’t mind the holiday colors! This midi skirt is just to die for! It’s a must on my list for sure!
For Thanksgiving, we traveled up to Nashville, TN to spend the holiday with Davey’s mom and brother. It was such a wonderful trip and it was so nice to be back in Nashville. Both of our hearts are in the city and we long for the day that we can be there permanently! On our way back to Texas on Sunday, I wore this comfy outfit for the long travel day ahead. Little did I know that our 9 hour drive would turn into a 14 hour one! Right outside of Memphis we hit bad traffic and we didn’t get home until almost 3am. Blah. This outfit was a comfy one to travel in, lots of layers and stretchy fabrics help to maintain comfort throughout the drive. I think after a certain amount of time in a car though, nothing is comfortable anymore!
What is your favorite outfit for a long car ride?
Chambray: Polo (old)
Top: Target (old)
Pants: Banana Republic (here)
Boots: Target (similar here)
I just LOVE making homemade Christmas decorations. My brother came up with this idea for our front porch and I just LOVE how they turned out! Homemade touches for Christmas always make it so special and unique! Try this idea out – plus if you have kids, they will love making this. We just googled a bunch of different snowflake shapes to make!
What you’ll need:
Glue gun with glue sticks
Ribbon or fishing wire
