Lego Table

I came across this idea on Pinterest about a month before Christmas. It's so simple! I knew it would be perfect for our kids- who are SUPER into legos, so I picked up the end table from IKEA for $8 and ordered the Lego base squares from Amazon. They were about $6/each.  Then I picked up a bottle of Gorilla glue at Target and assembled it.  On Christmas morning, my husband had a whole castle set up on the table when the kids came down stairs to see it. I doubt a single day has gone by that the kids haven't used the table.

Love Note (Dry Erase)

 When my husband and I first got married, we used to leave each other love notes around the house all the time but as life got crazier, little things like that tend to get forgotten. This frame idea, that I found on Pinterest, makes it so simple and easy to leave a quick little love note whenever I am thinking about it and my husband likes to leave notes on here, too. It has been so fun to walk into my room and find a new note waiting for me. :)

(I changed up the design a little bit and used an IKEA frame.  I made the felt flowers and hot glued them to the front.  I cut a small rectangle of felt and glued it to the back to make a pocket for the pen so it doesn't get lost.) Great Valentines Gift, don't you think?
