Headboards - Do It Yourself

Fairyland May 14, 2010 A happy Home Tour Friday to you! Before we begin today, I need you to SIT DOWN and take several deep breaths. Because this is incredible. Friends, Kidtropolis has done it again. Somewhere in Mississippi, there is a VERY lucky little girl who gets to sleep here every night: Shall I send the paramedics – did you just faint? Here’s another look at the gorgeousness. This room took 4 months to create and 5 14-hour-long days to install. I can see why! This tree is the perfect touch. With stones on the floor and mushrooms scattered about, this really is a fairy’s home. Can you stand it?? Parker,you lucky little adorable. These “tattered” curtains are just perfect, in my opinion. Now we’ll take a closer look at the details… Mossy flowers and grass, A pinch-me-too-cute bookcase, Petal lights (!) And this door that can be half-open. The details are just remarkable to me. The motif even continues into her bathroom… I know, I know… A merry weekend to you all! Share this post You might like...

Who wouldn’t want to bring a little bit of the outdoors to their home or office? – Gravel (can be found at any pet store in the aquarium section) – Air plants, cactus or succulents (you will need a small amount of potting soil if not using air plants) – Moss – spray paint – magnetic metal tins (from here or here, you just need to slap magnetic tape on the back!) – Dremel tool – painter’s tape – E6000 glue Cover your tins with painter’s tape before you begin spray painting the inside of them. Place acrylic tops back in the metal frame of the caps and glue both pieces. Once your tins are dry from spray paint, remove tape and wash tins with water and soap.

Stylish and easy to make bookshelf I'm quite happy with that fact that the first piece of furniture I built is a bookshelf. I wanted to make something large enough to keep all my books, and stylish at the same time. I like somewhat futuristic and organic designs with plenty curved lines, and you can see that in this shelf. It's really a relatively easy project, not much work is needed, although some precision will be useful. Materials: - Wood - 3 boards 2700x120x18 - 2 or more MDF boards 2700x1400x18 - 3 long screws with studs - Paint and varnish Tools: - Jigsaw - Drill The single downside of this design is that you won't be able to move the shelf elsewhere easily - it will be screwed to the wall.

Do-it-Yourself DIY String Wedding Lanterns Yarn Chandeliers Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry. Are you getting excited to try to do this at home as much I am? Instructions: 1.

DIY Decor: Removable Decorative Vinyl Wall Stickers Wall stickers are not the first thing people think of for decorating a living, dining or bedroom space. However, these are not just designed for kids these days – there are also simple, modern and minimalist wall sticker designs that work well even in elegant spaces as well as playful patterns that work for retro and vintage spaces. Artstick produces a wide range of stickers that are not only ideal for livening up spaces but also for providing simple visual interest on otherwise unadorned wall surfaces. At the other end of the spectrum are colorful retro designs that approximate the silhouettes of classically shaped furniture and furnishing objects, from chandeliers and grandfather clocks to candlestick holders and decorative picture frames and blues, whites, browns and golds. Likewise more fun and funky are various object-oriented stickers that feature lifelike outlines as well as over-sized and/or highly abstracted depictions of real-life items.

Splash Of Colors | Lushlee I love white decor in the home for a fresh and clean look. However, when bright colored home furnishings are added and used in the right proportion, they can certainly add charm and personality to any white room! As seen in this Georgian house in Stockwell, from the portfolio of UK-based location agency, Light Locations. I’m especially fond of the clawfoot tub and the blue rustic cabinet against the colorful vintage painting!

Little Red Infinity Dress Tutorial *Tutorial made by Melissa @ Sew Like My Mom for her win during the Red Week challenge.* I made this little dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I used some soft polyester knit I found at Hancock Fabrics for $4.99/yard. I found these dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself. Next, cut a waistband 10″ tall and the length of your waist you measured. Now for construction.
