    DIY Flower Wall

    DIY Flower Wall Headboard

    Have you seen those few, gorgeous, real flower walls on Pinterest? I have. How pretty to have a wall of fresh flowers in your home?! It’s not very realistic or long lasting but its swoon worthy. It’s also very easy to recreate it with fake flowers! I’ve tried a few different ways to make a flower wall and my last try was a success. I put them behind my bed and I could not be any happier! Here is how I did it: Read more…

    DIY Grey Weathered Wood Stain

    To see how I built this table for under $40, click here.

    Another video! In this, I show you how to get that perfect grey, weathered wood stain that I used on my dining table. It is a little time consuming but the finished product is so worth it. I actually got the stain idea from City Farmhouse but instead of using Annie Sloan French Linen, I used Lowe’s Beige Shadow (W38005A) and I put DecoArt Clear Soft Touch Varnish as a top coat. It is very important to put a top coat on to protect your wood, seal in the paint, and also keep the table from yellowing over time. All of the paints I used are sample sizes and I think the overall cost came out around $10? To apply all of the paints I used an old t-shirt and cut it into pieces to use a new piece for each color.  Read more…


    DIY Farmhouse Table For Under $40

    DIY Square Farmhouse Table

    A farmhouse style table for under $40? Is it possible? The answer is yes. Don’t go and spend an arm and a leg on a brand new table from some retail store. Make your own! Simple as that. I have been longing for a light gray farmhouse table for a while now but figured it would be too hard or expensive to make. Until I came across these plans. It is the perfect sized table for us and exactly what I wanted. I’ve come to realize that we really don’t use our dining table for things other than storing miscellaneous items on and I want to change that. I did do a makeover to our first dining table but over time it has yellowed a bit and has gotten dinged up pretty bad from doing DIYs on it. So with a new table, we will be able to actually enjoy meals on something other than our laps in front of the TV. Read more…

    Crown Half Up Pull-Through Braid Video Tutorial

    Using my hair extension set from Irresistible Me, I put together this braided hairstyle. I used two 3 clip wefts on the bottom, the large 4 clip weft above those, and one 1 clip weft on the side of my head parted with more hair. The hair extensions clip in making it easy to put them exactly where they need to be for braids. To see my full review on them, you can go here. I hope you enjoy my video and if you try this hairstyle I would love to see it, just tag me (@sweettealblog) on Instagram or Twitter!
