West Elm Mirror and Banana Pudding

Project #3

I am so very thankful to have a crafty husband. I absolutely LOVE West Elm’s Parson Floor Length Mirror, but right now I have way too many “want list items” for the new house to justify spending $399 on a mirror.
Instead of ordering the mirror, Chad and I went to Home Depot and Lowe’s for an unframed mirror, wood, and a can of stain (for the wood). After barely getting everything to fit in the SUV, we made it home and Chad started building our mirror! I can’t say I was much help at all with this project.

I think the mirror turned out perfect and we spent under $75 on all the supplies to make it!  I am one proud wife and getting dressed in the mornings for work is so much easier with my new full length mirror!

Also this past week, Chad’s mom was in town. Ms. Lisa, John, and Leah all came over to see the new house on Sunday. I made a Banana Pudding Poke Cake from a recipe on Pinterest. This cake is now one of Chad’s favorite desserts and this was my second time making it this summer. Since everyone was over at the house for dessert, we decided to use our Lenox - Butler's Pantry Gourmet china for the very first time.
Project #4

Our next project is going to be making a barn door into a headboard for our new king size mattress and frame.
