DIY Fur Stool

I have been seeing some fur accent stools on Pinterest and blogs and I LOVE them!  Fur stools are versatile and neutral and would work anywhere from a master bedroom to a living room to a kids room.  Also, they are super functional.  I mean, can you ever really have too many accent stools?  (I originally wrote that sentence without the word “accent” and it did not sit right with this Nurse Practitioner;))  If you don’t know what I am talking about when I say fur stool, here is Anthropologie’s version.

Fall Printables (free)

fall printables

Sorry other seasons, but Fall is my favorite child.  I LOVE everything about it.  I am taking an inventory of all my scarves because the second the temp dips below 65 F, I am going to wear like 3 scarves just to celebrate.  But since it is only mid-August and that is not going to happen for a few weeks, I thought I could at least start some fall decorating with making a few fall printables.  And I thought I would share them with you.

DIY Floral Crown

As long as I am jumping on the Trend Train, I thought I would go ahead and jump into the floral crown car, which is right behind the macrame/yarn wall hanging car.  I am sure my mother and all of those in her generation think it is hilarious (and awesome) that all these things are getting a rebirth in 2016.  I love it, obviously.  I decided to make my own DIY floral crown and I am going to show you how I did it.
