Today, I’m thrilled to introduce you to Carmel from Our Fifth House. Carmel is my “partner” on Crafting with the Stars which basically means she does all the hard work and I simply cheer her on :). This girl has some mad decorating skills. Let me show you what I mean (just click on the picture to be taken to the post):

Um, hello gorgeousness! Point proven. Carmel, you’re the real star here and it’s been a blast to cheer you on. Thanks for letting me feature you over here today. Take it away girl….
Hello Home Stories A to Z readers! I’m Carmel from Our Fifth House. I’m so excited to be over here today! I’m participating in the Crafting with the Stars competition, and I chose Beth as my crafting star! If you’re not familiar with that competition it is the ultimate creative competition that is hosted at the blog – Sew Dang Cute Crafts. 12 contestants are paired up with 12 blogland “stars” to duke it out in a 4-week themed competition, where you (the readers) vote for the winners. It’s been an honor to have Beth as my star. She’s beyond creative and super supportive! Ok, so I’ll stop embarrassing her now and just show you a couple of the projects I’ve entered in this competition so far.
The first challenge was the knockoff challenge. I knocked off the Pottery Barn seagrass headboard.
Using an old door that was collecting dust in my garage, some manila rope, and a ridiculous amount of hot glue I created my own version of this natural fiber headboard for my guest room.
Besides loving the finished look, I also love that it cost me under $130 to make! Considering the PB version is $499 plus tax & shipping, I think the hot glue burns were worthwhile! You can find the full tutorial here.
