Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - But it doesn't really have a name...

First things first...I'm gonna go ahead and say that in exactly ONE week from today...my partner-in-crime, link-up co-host, sister from another mister will be here. In my hometown. Staying in my house. Going to her very FIRST rodeo. In case you forgot, she looks a little something like this:
She hit every branch, twig & leaf on the pretty tree, did she not?

What does this mean to you?

A few things:

1. Make sure you follow us on the Insta so you can be completely annoyed with our 6,347 posts within a 5 day period.

2. Please note: next week's SPD link up will be MIA. That's right...we're taking a weeklong break so enjoy your time off and be ready to BRING IT March 14th. Deal?

3. I said a "few things" but it's really only a "couple things" but since I'm here, I might as well write something so this is me writing something.

Moving on...

I hope you kids put on your Pinterest panties today because today's project is (and I know I say this every week) my absolute, hands-down, without a doubt, favorite one I've done to date. Yes. I went there.

I'd be lying if I said I haven't had my eye on this project for quite some time now but let's just say I had to get a few things in place before I could actually make it happen...like buy a house so I would have actually have a space large enough to put it!

After purchasing "said" house...I'd need to actually get the courage to poke holes in my virgin walls so on our lil' house on the prairie's 2 month anniversary, she got nailed. Ahem...as in...we put nails in the wall to hang what you're about to see...(filthy minds...)

Here we go!

What do you get when you take this incredible original pin:
(Gah! Can't you just smelllll the rusticness coming through the computer screen?! I thought so too!)


And put the two together?!

VOILA!

Granted, mine has a little more clean, not-so-cluttered look to it, and is still a work in progress (needs more color) and perhaps I'm 10 years late to the party but I would have never in a gazillion years thought to hang a wreath over a mirror. Would you?! 


The moment we hung this sucker, it instantly changed the room.
Total room changer right here, people. Total room changer.

Iono about you but I foresee MANY-a-holiday wreaths being made and switched out as the year goes on!

Saw it.
Pinned it.
Freaking did it.

Your turn!

  3. I hope you two have a lot of laughs and fun. I am super jealous, I love TEXAS!! I love your version better, I am currently in the process of decluttering my house. Too many decorations just means more things to dust! :)

    1. Thanks girl!! The mirror is from Garden Ridge (got it for a steal!) and I actually used an over-the-door hook to hang the wreath. It was all I had but I kinda like the way it looks!!

  20. OMG I LOVE! Where did you get that mirror? I have a frame similar to that, but can't find a mirror anywhere. That would go perfect in my living room. :)

  22. Ok, I thought of a name for the project... "Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. - Super Adorable Wreath That Adds the Perfect Touch to My Mirror and Buffet Hutch"...Catchy right?! Haha... This is gorg... I am a wreath over the mirror gal... if there is a wreath that needs to be hung in my house..it goes over a mirror :)

    Sad face for no SPD link up next week but you girls have fun and can't wait for the post recap! With lots of pics! :D

  23. Love your project this week! It looks great! I must say I like your version better than the original pin. It still looks rustic enough but is a lot more "clean" and streamlined...lil mix of contemporary in there! I wasn't able to do an SPD this week since I was on work travel but I'm gonna try to get something done this weekend so I'm ready next time! :P

  24. Great job! I like the way it turned out. Also, I think I might have to copycat your aloe set up there. I love the way the 3 look together on that little tray!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am loving this! Where did you get the small wreath hanger? I can only ever find the big ones for the front door. Thanks!
