Thrift Store Lamp Mercury 'Mirrored' Glass Makeover with Covered Shade I have been looking for a lamp to sit on our breakfast bar since I made my living room to-do list a few weeks ago. Honestly, it has been awhile since I have had to purchase a lamp and totally forgot just how hefty some of the price tags can actually be. This {Haley} table lamp from Crate & Barrel has had my eye for quite some time, though when I actually looked at the price – the $249 tag was not going to be happening anytime soon.

Felt Camelia tutorial and pattern Remember when I shared that I wanted to celebrate spring? Well the celebration has begun =] First I am going to share flowers made out of felt. And these particular ones are very easy! I know I am kind of biased with the color combination but all the felt flowers I will be sharing are going to end up in projects for my office so you will see those colors a lot. One of my favorite flowers are Camelias (Spanish name) and even tho just with 2 layers they don’t look much like Camelias if you use 3 or more, it will begin to resemble them =]

Thank you for all the great feedback for liking my Braided Rag Rug. I understand that not everyone has a sewing machine or/and able to sew, so I created this no-sew version for the non-sewer who like to recycle their bed sheets or de-stash their fabrics to make this feet cozy Woven Rag Rug. This tutorial doesn’t require any loom for weaving; just use a sturdy corrugated carton box from your recycle pile. I hope everyone can do their part on greening the Earth again and reduce the rubbish that loaded the landfill. Recycle Tutorial: Woven Rag Rug

Tutorial: Dash mount for GPS « Quilt in Progress Tutorial: Dash mount for GPS « Quilt in Progress I’m the kind of person who would rather make something (if possible) than buy it. Once I saw a dashboard mount for a GPS in the store, I knew I could figure out how to make something that would work. I started twice, and there may still be some revising to do for looks, but I’m pleased with the results. Materials: scrap vinyl (I used a banner)rubber non-skid fabricplastic disc from the GPScotton fabric, approximately 4″ by 12″weight (sand, rice, beans, seed, etc) Start with a circle on the scrap vinyl, approximately 5-6 inches in diameter.

Apr Spring is finally rolling in here. The grass is turning a little green, the trees are budding and there are little shoots coming up where my tulips (I hope!) will show up soon. Polymer clayers are, likewise, making spring goods: Stephanie is one of the contributors with “Hand Made Mood” and she has the most delightful “Bunny Boutonnieres and Bows” to deck out the kiddos during this Easter Holiday.

Design*Sponge » Blog Archive » diy project: brenna’s paper capiz shell chandelier i love wax paper for packing lunches; i wrap sandwiches in a piece of wax paper and tie it like a present with a little cotton string. it’s so much better looking than a plastic bag. wax paper comes in handy for more things than i realized, like rolling it up to use for a funnel, or how about rubbing a piece of wax paper on the top of your shower curtain rod to cut down on that terrible screeching in the morning…problem solved. but who knew that if you iron layers of wax paper together it looks remarkably similar to a capiz shell? this discovery brought me to today’s project: the faux capiz chandelier. hung over your dining table, or outside at an outdoor dinner party, it is an easy solution to a dramatic light fixture and will look phenomenal in either setting. i hope you enjoy making your own as much i did! -brenna CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump!
