Burlap Wreath for Fall Inspiration

This must have been the day for projects. I have been working on a few projects for my daughters graduation party. I want to tie some beautiful tulle around each of the chairs. Now the colors don't looks so great with my chairs but the chairs at the coffee house are just wood. I have some other colors also but this is my test material. I love the sparkles. I am going tomorrow to test the length tomorrow then I will be able to get all the colors cut and ready to go.
I have been wanting to make a burlap wreath so today I pulled out my materials and got started.

Now the pins will not stay, the are just there to hold things in place until the glue dries. I am happy with the way it turned out.  I used a roll of jute to make the flowers and I left long strings. If I don't like it I can always cut them off later.

In my spare time I dug out my black paint and painted my counter top. This cabinet is actually not going to stay but until my hubby gets done working at the rentals and has time to work at home I decided to do a quick fix. Two coats of black paint and a coat or two of poly and I think it will last until he rips it out!
I was so tired of the green that was there so black is so much better. I will decorate it and put up another picture but for now it is drying. That might take a while because it is cold in this house...cold and windy!
I do hope you are enjoying my posts on Fall Inspiration! if you want to see all the 31 day bloggers
