{Five on Friday // Printed Burlap // DIY Table // }

Happy Friday Friends!! It's supposed to be in the 90s all weekend here in Texas {boo!}, but I am not going to let that stop me from making all things Fall, sipping on my PSL and burning all the baked fall scents in the Scentsy's. 

Five on Friday...

1.) In case you missed it...

Monday >> Our DIY filled weekend

Tuesday >> Our 2015 Fall Bucketlist

Wednesday >> A Nature Scavenger Hunt

Thursday >> The Guys Behind the Blog - September Edition

2.) On Monday I whipped up this framed scripture printed on burlap and and posted it to IG and Facebook. I had several people ask me how I did it...so here goes. It's so simple. :)

The frame was a gift from my mother in law for one of my birthdays. We both have a feeling she bought it at Kohl's, but not 100%. I had a different picture in the frame, but once I printed on the burlap I knew I wanted to use this frame. 

I bought the burlap sheets {Creative Essentials - 3 laminatd Burlap Sheets - here} at Walmart in the craft section. It came in a three pack. {I will be going back for more #fortheloveofburlap} 

I found the scripture I wanted to print on the burlap {here}. I was going to make my own, but I loved the fonts used in this one, so I just saved the image to my computer. 

I put the burlap in my printer and printed out the image in a 5x7 print. And so I didn't waste the other half of the paper I printed a few monograms to use for another project!  :)

Once I put it in the frame I noticed it needed a little something else. So I made a burlap & lace bow to add to the frame.

And that's it. Easy peasy.

3.) This weekend we are going to create our version of this table {and whatever else I can talk my hubby into}:

I am so excited!! I ordered the wheels off Amazon and they should be here tomorrow. And we have several of pallets that our roofers so graciously let us keep after they did our roof!! 

4.) On this day SIX years ago we found out that we were pregnant with our little Masonbug! Talk about all the feels. After 2 years of trying for a baby our dreams came true on that very day! And also on this day six years ago we were heading to...

5.) The State Fair of Texas!! Love this time of year. We are going this Sunday and I can hardly contain my excitement. I'm not one to ever wish for a weekend to go by fast, but I am looking forward to Sunday for sure.
