Hello, I am Amanda and I blog at mommy is coocoo. I am thrilled to be guest posting for my friend Christy on Our Southern Home!  

Mommy is coocoo is all about fun!  I want to inspire you to make your every day surroundings lovely regardless of your budget. 

My blog is known for my EASY to Understand Chevron Stripe Tutorial and my Christmas Ornament Wreath Tutorial. Today I am going to share some other popular projects with you.  I hope you are inspired! 

With a glance my formal living room tells you quite a bit about me.  I am drawn to color and texture.  My style is very eclectic. I collected these pieces from estate sales, relatives, and popular furniture stores.

And how do you like my wallpaper?  It's actually a stencil! 

I am totally coocoo for Homemade Chalky Paint these days!  I have videos and recipes for you!  See the before & after of this chair I designed for me my daughter too.

One my favorite kid projects is this collapsible glue-gun teepee I made for my son's fifth birthday.  It is made with outdoor fabric so we leave it outside all summer and then collapse it and move it in for the winter.  Anyone with a glue gun can make a teepee like this!

This coocoo momma loves a good upcyle!  I enjoying creating pretty, functional pieces out of something most people would throw out (or sell on the cheap).

I transformed a $60 craigslist find to this beautiful  Peacock Blue Table. If you've ever wondered how to glaze painted furniture make sure you check out my detailed tutorial.

I love fabric! I upcycled old fabric remnants to make this pretty  embroidery hoop wall art.   This thrifty project is one of my favorite things!   It's an inexpensive way to make a boring wall beautiful.

My favorite upcycle is found in my master bathroom.  The master bath  was our families first major renovation! You are looking at a picture of what used to be our vanity mirror. See how we removed it and flipped it on it's side to make it the focal point of our bathroom.
Thank you for allowing me to share today Christy!  This coocoo momma couldn't be more grateful.
