Easy fall DIY decor idea ... distressed mason jars and burlap rosettes

Hi there!  Katie from View From The Fridge back today with an easy Fall décor idea!  It involves mason jars, chalk paint, and burlap ... can't go wrong with these supplies, right?!? This Fall, I tried out a more neutral color scheme with pops of turquoise and orange here and there.  This centerpiece fit into my décor perfectly! I made these painted and distressed chalk painted mason jars for a baby shower a couple weeks ago, and after the shower I wanted to keep them out on display. I also had this raw wood crate from Michael's and some chalk paint (also from Read More...

Hi All!  It's Katie from View From The Fridge back today with a fun FALL craft!  It is September (already?!?!), and that means it's officially Fall in my book (yeah, yeah, I realize that Summer isn't officially over just yet). This year my plan for Fall decor is neutral with a few (key word here ... few) pops of Fall color.  Lots of white, grey, and natural elements as the base with some orange and turquoise pops of color.

Chicken Wire Cloche

DIY Wire Cloche | View From The Fridge

Hi there!  It's Katie from View From The Fridge back today with another DIY project ... a DIY Chicken Wire Cloche!   I'd have to say ... Chicken wire is becoming the new black.  Or, more like ... the new 'chalkboard' of crafting materials.  It has even made a debut at Michael's.  I'm pretty sure the people purchasing it from the craft store are not bringing it home to contain their chickens. I did buy my chicken wire from the Home Improvement store, however (I feel like this ups my credibility).  My husband was again thoroughly confused by what I was up to (this is Read More...

{Faux} Leather Striped Clutch … Anthropologie Style

MY $8 VERSION

Hello!  Katie from View From The Fridge back here again this month to share a fun {and very useful} DIY project ... A {faux} Leather Striped Clutch ... Anthropologie Style.  This clutch just so happens to be inspired by one of my favorite stores ... Anthropologie!  I love pretty much everything about it ... the clothes, the shoes, the housewares, and ... THE HANDBAGS!!  I especially love accessories right now since Baby #3 is due to make an arrival in 17 days (eek!!), and therefore none of the clothes are appealing (or will fit right now). Now ... back to the subject clutch. Read More...
