Monday Made it

 For my 1st made it, I put together this gift basket for my mother-in-laws birthday. She is someone I always have a hard time shopping for and God bless him, my husband is ZERO help.

She loves going out with friends but she also works a lot and enjoys nights in most of the week. I put together this "Movie Night" basket with supplies for a movie night in or out on the town!

In the basket I included:
-An AMC Movie Theater gift card
-2 different kinds of candy
-3 different kinds of popcorn
-A bottle of wine

 I decorated it using cute printables I found here.

 For my 2nd made it, I gave this cute little table from Ikea a makeover.
I was excited to find this little table because it is the perfect size to put in a workstation and it was only $8!!! You can't beat that!! 

I wanted to jazz it up a little and make it more useful for my students.

I painted the table with the same spray paint I used to make my "teacher stool" and painted the top with chalkboard paint.

I love the way that it came out and I can't wait to put in my classroom!

My last made it of the week are personalized cups for our family trip. I bought these cute little cups at Walmart for under a dollar each. They are really thick so hopefully they will hold up through our vacation!

Here are mine and my husbands

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make one for each person going on our trip. We are all ready for Orange Beach!

What have you been working on this week? 

Make sure and check back with 4th Grade Frolics to see everyone else's great projects! 


  1. I love that little table. I need to quit reading Monday Made It posts because I just keep making a list of things to make and buy! :)

    1. Thank you so much! Lol I know, I feel like I already have a to do list a mile long and with every post I read, it gets a little bit longer!!

  2. I have those tables! Thanks for giving me a great idea!

    1. I love those tables, you can't beat the price! You will have to post your finish product :)

  3. The cups...I am in love! Love your sweet basket you made for your mother-in-law. I normally just buy mine a gift card. I'm not a very creative gift giver. Have fun on your trip!
