Mermaid Corn!

Happy Friday Lovelies!

I'm soooo excited to share my latest project! 
Mermaid Corn! Hehe! 
Didn't you ever wonder what kind of corn mermaids ate at Thanksgiving? 
Well if they did they would most likely use this! 

I was inspired by this Martha Stewart post.  
I love how they dyed the corn husk different colors. It was so creative and fun! 

I decided to put a coastal and aqua spin on it and created Mermaid Corn. 

I chose medium Indian corn. The dye color I chose was Teal (of course) by Rit. 

I used 4 large size Mason jars and put a corn in each. I filled each jar with a cup of warm water and added two table spoons of dye to each jar. I mixed it up with a plastic fork. It's up to you how deep of color you would like. When I left it in for a few minutes the color was still too light so I decided to leave them for a few hours and let the color really absorb. 

I was so happy with the end result! 
Each corn had varied slightly in color which gave it that seaweed look. 

I think Mermaids would definitely love this corn! Hehe!

It goes great in my scalloped aqua dish from Homegoods. 
To finish the look I added a starfish and a couple straw pumpkins from Tj Maxx. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Big Hugs!

Beadboard Project!

Happy Thursday! It's almost the weekend! Yay! 
Today I'm sharing with you a project that my hubby and I tackled last weekend! I'm always looking around my home and dreaming up new projects to start. Hehe! Being an Interior Designer my wheels are always turning! We have a couple niches in our kitchen and upstairs linen closet. I decided to add beadboard to the back of those niches for an added color and texture pop! We started by going to our local Lowes Home Improvement and picked out a piece of beadboard. We had it cut down to fit the wall space in each niche. 

I then painted the beadboard. I used the paint color Aqueduct by Sherwin Williams for the upstairs niche.

I absolutely loved the way it turned out!
 It was that added pop of color and texture that space needed.

It matches my Mermaids book perfectly! 

I then did the same process downstairs in our kitchen. 
I used the paint color Gentle Wave by Valspar for the beadboard color.

After painting the beadboard, I wanted to change up the shelving a little and added white plates, milk glass and milk bottles. I love how the white looked against the aqua. 

I then decided to organize my Ikea Kitchen Cart!
I love how it's a perfect spot to display some of my favorite kitchen goodies!

Just what that spot needed!

The cake stands are from Homegoods! I love how perfect they go with the beadboard!

I added this quote I saw on Instagram not too long ago and love it! 

Hope you all enjoyed my lil project! Have a wonderful weekend!

After receiving these trays I couldn't wait to make my favorite Tiki Drink!
