{guest post: rain on a tin roof}

Hi! I’m Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof. I have a small big problem. I always have to be busy. I have a hard time just sitting still. My busy-ness usually consists of having some craft or home project waiting in the wings for me as well as numerous sporting events with husband who is a coach. Once I finish a craft, project, etc., I don’t know how to take a break. I try to sit down and take a rest, but then I just start thinking about something else I could do. It’s pathetic!
However, due to my problem with non-busy-ness, I have created some quite amazing things, in my opinion. Here are a few of my favorites.

Fall DIY Wreath

My previous fall wreath was beyond pathetic. I had purchased it at a yard sale for $1 a few years ago. It was extremely cute then, with a nice little scarecrow on  it, but it didn’t fare so well in the three moves in the past three years. I created this one from a straw wreath form, yarn, pom-pom maker and silk fall leaves. The “L” came from Hobby Lobby. You can read all about it here and find out how to make your own!

Yellow Floral and Gray Bird Curtains and Pillows

Over this past Labor Day weekend, I made these wonderful curtains for my dining room. The previous weekend I had made curtains in the same pattern for my kitchen window.
The kitchen and dining room is all one large room and both rooms definitely needed some color. This fabric from Hancock’s was perfect! The curtains were super simple to make too. Read all about the kitchen curtains here and all about the dining room curtains here. Luckily, I had some extra fabric left over to make pillows for my couch and I scored big at Hancock’s when I got some remnant fabric for super cheap.

Ok, so I went a little crazy with the pillows! But the fabric was such a deal!

Rustic Chest / Bench / Amazing Storage

I picked up this chest at one of my favorite antique stores for only $30. Its huge and had great storage. I loved the weathered and old look of it, so I wanted to make sure to keep it that way, but it needed some color. This is what it looked like before.  Isn’t the shape great, as well?
I couldn’t come up with the perfect paint color, so I ended up mixing a couple different colors and then finally just literally pouring paint on the chest. In the end, it turned out like this.
I am in love with it. It is wonderful storage and great for extra seating in my living room. You can read more about it here.
