Bump Smitten: DIY Tutorial: Paint Swatch Chandlier

Created by Rhi of Hey Gorgeous (an oh-so-gorgeous blog) and beautifully photographed by Jenna McKenzie Photography, this tutorial is a keeper! Head on down to your local hardware store and start swiping some paint swatches. FYI... you'll need a lot! From Rhi... I have to admit guys, that ‘borrowing’ the paint swatches for this little project wasn’t the easiest thing to do. You can find Rhi's Step-by-Step Instructions and photos on her fabulous blog, Hey Gorgeous! DIY No Sew Balloon Window Shade Using A Fitted Sheet. This is truly the easiest no sew window treatment I have ever posted.

DIY No Sew Balloon Window Shade Using A Fitted Sheet

It is done with a sheet, not a flat sheet that you see made into easy no-sew panels, but– a fitted sheet. I found this set for $13.99 at Ross and bought it because I liked the pattern and plan to use the set as fabric yardage in my studioffice makeover. I learned to create this treatment when I worked in display and had forgotten all about it until I was in the supermarket line recently paging through a decorating magazine and saw a balloon style shade featured in a photo spread.

“OMGosh look at that” I thought. If you live long enough you see that– everything that goes around truly does come around again, but with a few tweaks. PS: One of my readers told me she found a similar pattern sheet on Here is the link: Charleston Sheet Set or check out the Lyon Percale set.

Supplies Needed: 1. 2. DIY Copper + Wood Paper Towel Holder. A paper towel holder is always an afterthought for me. case in point – i’ve been wanting to DIY one for a year now. but the other day when i deep cleaned the kitchen for the first time in months, i noticed how gross and rusty ours was – i headed out to the hardware store that day. this project is SUPER easy to make, but you need some good tools and some arm strength or some boyfriend. a piece of wood (we got this birch in the precut section of the hardware store) copper pipe copper cap industrial strength glue drill spade bit (we used 7/8″) miter box hacksaw wood conditioner (optional) ONE // determine your shape and size. i simply used the hexagon shape tool in photoshop and printed it onto cardstock at around 7″ wide. you can also just draw it. carefully cut out your shape and trace it onto your wood with a pencil.

Fabric Panels: How To

Thank you for the nice comments about my new studio - if I could, I'd have everyone over for tea, lemon scones, and crafty conversation :) My fabric panels are super simple and I wanted to share how I made them. The inspiration was what many of us face when we have fabric we love but can't bear to cut it - what to do? I used foam core, double stick tape (I like poster tape especially or ones available for scrapbookers) and wall putty to put them all together.

Cut your foam core to accommodate the piece of fabric that you are using. Place the double stick along the edges of the foam core, gently pull the fabric over each corner and press down onto the tape, and then working from opposite sides, gently pull taut the fabric along the sides and press down onto the tape.

Sarah’s Snowflake Panels + Light. [a big thanks to sarah at cursive for sharing this fun diy project with us while amy takes a much needed day-off] over the holidays i made lots of paper snowflakes to decorate our place for a holiday party. after the new year i couldn’t bear to throw away my delicate little friends so i decided to make a snowflake panel (+ pendant light!) Out of them. my idea was definitely inspired by tord boontje‘s until dawn curtain. for the snowflakes i raided our recycling bin that was overflowing with junk mail and bills (ick). a little scissor angst perhaps? Sure. i turned my credit card bills into something beautiful. paper snowflakes are often deemed “holiday decor”, but i feel the overall pattern of them together on the panel divorces them from that look. and hey, i live in a freezing climate where it’s not going to be warm anytime soon. my philosophy is to embrace it and enjoy its beauty while i can. – sarah.
