Monday Made It

I am excited to be linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It! This is my first link up for this summer and all of my made it's are house related. Now that I know what I'll be teaching next year (5th grade ELA), it's time to step it up on my school Monday Made It's.
 
 
The first thing I made was a new wreath for my front door. For the summer I love to have a patriotic wreath. I gathered a grapevine wreath, bushes, picks, and flags to make my wreath. I love how it turned out. It is so bright - this photo is not edited at all!   
I don't know if you can consider this a made it, since we didn't actually make it, but we installed an American flag to a column in front of our house. I love how you can see the reflection of it in the wreath picture above.

This past weekend I went to IKEA for the first time. It is such a neat store! It was a spur of the moment trip, so I didn't really have a plan going in. I can see now that you need a plan before going there! We got lots of cute things for our house and my favorite is this beautiful sofa table! We had planned on using it in our dining room, but decided to move it to our entry way. I love it! Now, the search is on to find new d├ęcor for it!
My last project was to create a Summer Bucket List of things I want our family to do this summer and create a printable of it! I am thinking I'll frame it for the summer. I looked online and found lots of Summer Bucket Lists, but I wanted to make my own with things that are feasible and things I know we'll actually do! It's not perfect, but it was a quick project last night and it will fit our needs!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Monday Made-It's! I hope to have some school projects ready for next week! :)

  5. The reflection of the flag in your wreath is priceless! I haven't been to Ikea before either. I'm pretty sure I would come out with my credit card maxed out!! Your summer bucket list is just perfect!

  6. I so want to go to Ikea. It might be dangerous. Other than the trip to TN (I want to leave for the beach) our summer lists are very similar!

  7. Your wreath and that photo are gorgeous! I absolutely adore Ikea, it can be a dangerous place to go. I'm lucky enough...or maybe my bank account is unlucky... to have a store 15 minutes away :)
