This tutorial is super easy. I think I spent more time figuring out what colors I was going to use. Originally I was thinking of an army green and gold, but I couldn’t find the perfect shade. I went for white and gold, because you really couldn’t fail with that color combo and I had some left over paint from the Fish Scale Wall Art I have done earlier in the year.
PS. Please excuse the lazy job I did painting this table white. Kinda used the bottom of the table as a pallet. I was feeling extra lazy.
For this project you will need:
Spray Paint (I used gold)
Step One: Start with your table (or chair) with a base coat. I painted mine white, but you could just as easily leave it, with a natural finish
Step Two: Use painters tape to section off where you want your accent color to start.
Step Three: Paint above the tape line
Step Four: Let dry, peel off painters tape.
This probably makes me seem like a crazy person, but I started quilting recently. I’ve never done it before, so I figured I’d try it out. I have been obsessing over this quilt, a figured out that this quilt would have been cooler if it was handmade. So, I decided to pick quilting up on a whim….
I haven’t been blogging as much because I have been working on that sucker and it’s pretty time consuming, also I am refinishing a coffee table that you will get a peek at soon. :)
I recently hit the jack pot. I have had my eye out for a vintage looking sunburst mirror for a while now. At one point I even tried to convince Tommy that we should spend $200 on one from West Elm, but luckily I found one a few weeks ago at Home Depot. What’s even better, is that it only cost $35!
In honor of my new amazing sunburst mirror, here is a round up of my fave DIY versions around the web.
I get really excited a lot of times and end up buying posters or prints that are not standard size. It kinda sucks. After taking into consideration the cost of ordering a custom frame made or buying a standard frame and getting custom matting, I usually decide it’s not worth it and they go into storage.
A few months ago I found this drawing board in the back of my closet and decided it would be perfect for those random size posters I have laying around. They cost about $10, so you really can’t beat it. Plus I love the way it adds visual interest to my wall.
All I had to do was hang it and I was good to go.
