As I was doing my daily shopping on blogs for the next best idea - I found it! I almost fell out of my chair... really. I have always loved the look of roman shades, but the affordable kind you can buy at Target never seem to fit my windows.
So, we have a large room that we've decided is a living / dining combination. But there is only one light fixture, and it's in the middle of the room.
I'm so happy today! I just finished hanging my new Roman Shades in my kitchen! The windows in there had been bare for years and honestly, my neighbors were starting to complain.
How we made the recycled magazine mirror. We started with a small mirror (this one was sold in a set of 4 mirrors at IKEA) Made a cardboard frame We glued the back of the mirror to the cardboard frame
For ya’ll to appreciate our efforts, let me give you a quick BEFORE tour….
Two of my friends that I graduated from Interior Design with just had their first baby and when I saw pictures of the nusery I just had to share it! It turned out perfect! So here is Emily with all the details:
UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed, Kaylene has the last counting comment. I know chalkboards are a bit of a craze right now, but I couldn’t help myself with this. If you are unlike me and can’t imagine painting your walls with chalkboard paint, you might fancy a vinyl chalkboard. I am sure most of you have seen the vinyl companies out there that provide all kids of custom graphics and text for your walls and other surfaces.
Supplies needed: Acrylic dabbers, photocopy of an image, water spritzer bottle, paintbrush, card stock, craft sheet and heat tool (optional) Take the lid off the dabbers and brush the paint onto the card stock, ensure you get a good coverage Take your photocopied image ( remember that you will get a reverse of the image, so don't use bold words), flip it over and place it in the acrylic. Lightly press it down making sure it's smooth and not wrinkled Leave to air dry for at least 15 minutes and then if you wish give it a blast with the heat tool Only move onto this step when you are sure your paint is completely dry Take your water filled spritzer bottle, spray the back of the paper no more than two squirts, you don't want it too wet
Today I'm participating in the Color My Summer series being hosted by Kojo Designs and Delia Creates . Each day a new color is celebrated with a fun summer project and today my color is "Purple". So, welcome to all of you that are new to "The Cottage Home" - I'm so glad to have you visiting for Color My Summer ! Summer time means picnics, barbecues, and potlucks!
Add a burst of color to your room with this crafty pouf! At 17” wide and 10” deep, it’s large enough to serve as floor seating or a foot stool. (And if you have pets, I have a feeling they may want to make this their new favorite spot!) This project is a little challenging to sew, but it’s not too difficult, so if you’re comfortable with the basics of sewing, give it a try. You can make a colorwheel effect with a range of solid colors, or choose a variety of patterned fabrics for a louder patchwork effect.
