Decorate To Celebrate #92

Happy Wednesday!!!

Welcome to another challenge over at

Remember all challenges are
Anything Goes :)

So I am in the process of redecorating
our Living Room/Piano/Sitting Room.
We recently bought a new couch and
I want to completely revamp the feel of this room.

I wanted to start by creating a Monogram
as a decor piece to either be placed on
a shelf I will have above the couch
or I may give in and make a burlap wreath
and add this to the bottom section of it - haven't decided.

Either way I am loving how this turned out!


I bought this curly "M" from Hobby Lobby
and painted it dark brown.

I traced the letter onto some CTMH paper
and fussy cut it out.
I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper,
then sanded around the edges.

I also inked around the edges with some ColorBox Chalk Ink.

The color is a close match to my new couch :)

When I saw this burlap flower at Hobby Lobby,
I knew I had to use it!

It actually is the inspiration behind my ideas
for what to do in this room.
I just finished up some burlap curtains for my window!

The strand of pearls is from Michael's.

I hope that you will join us over at Decorate To Celebrate
for another challenge with us!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
