I love that you all loved my chair makeovers as much as me! This dresser is another one of my favorites. It’s just the cheapie RAST dresser from Ikea that I painted a perfect deep sea blue. Then I added half circle backplates to the drawer pulls that I cut from wood with my Glowforge and painted coral (I actually sell the precut pieces in my shop too in case you want to mimic the look). Such an out of the box color combo that just worked perfectly together don’t you think? Sharing all these furniture rehabs makes me want to go out and thrift today! Fingers crossed I can convince my kids to tag along on a little thrifting adventure. 🤞🏻
One of my favorite thrift store makeovers ever we’re my new studio office chairs. I found these all black chairs at my local Habitat Restore for $15 each. I first cleaned them, then gave the metal frames a coat of gold spray paint, painted the wood back with acrylic craft paint, sealed it with clear spray paint, then recovered the cushions with my stripe fabric I designed for @spoonflower. They are by far one of my favorite colorful furniture makeovers. Swipe to see the process. Isn’t it crazy what a little color can do? What has been your favorite thrift store find?
The last few weeks I had the opportunity to act like an elf and spread a little cheer through small acts of kindness and generosity around my community with the help of @frostbank. My kids and I bought cups of coffee for strangers and paid for another family’s dinner while out to eat. Seeing the smiles on these strangers’ faces was the best mood booster and made the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve magical. You can read all about our adventures in generosity and spreading cheer over on the blog. Now tell me, what small act of kindness would you do for a stranger? #OptForOptimism #Ad
You asked, and I made it happen! I found the easiest way to recreate Target’s pom pom heart wall hanging from last year and I’m sharing the tutorial for it over on the blog today. I even found metal heart hoops which make this project as easy as making pom poms and gluing!
Love might be a battlefield, but this DIY geometric heart flower vase sure isn’t! I’m sharing how to turn a plain paper mache heart chocolate box into the prettiest flower vase you ever did see over on the blog today. And yes, you can even use it to hold real flowers in water!🤯 by the way we still have a few rainbow heart garlands left in the shop and you can download this free printable Valentine’s Day art in the blog archives under holiday->valentines day. Now who’s ready for a little valentines crafting?
Give me all the color blocking! These color blocked wood organizing trays were so easy to make with the help of my Glowforge. I just laser cut the shapes, painted them and then glued the pieces together for the most colorful way to organize my desk supplies. Over on the blog I’m sharing how I created these but also giving you ideas on how to recreate the look on regular ceramic trays as well.
Happy Sunday! I loved hearing about everyone’s favorite colors yesterday. If you can’t tell by this photo, blues are definitely my favorite to decorate with. But then I like to layer on all the other colors. 😂 This morning find me busy selling Girl Scout cookies with my daughter. What are your plans today?
I know purple is a controversial color, but I find lately that I’m kind of obsessed with all the light shades of it. Lilac, periwinkle, lavender. Especially when paired with peach or coral. I’m even thinking of repainting my accent wall in the studio with it. 😱 What color or shade are you really loving right now? P.S. this shot was from the rodeo carnival last spring and I can’t wait to go back again this year!
Take another little piece of my heart now baby... This view of all the new heart keychains getting ready to head out gave me all the happy feels! Just look at all those vibrant colors! Have you checked out all the new Valentine’s Day goodies and earrings in the shop yet?
Throwing it back to last year and my most popular post for the year! Little did I know when making this tassel arrow wall hanging that you all would love it so much! All it take is yarn, felt, felt balls, and a dowel rod to make your own. A full tutorial can be found in the Valentine’s Day archives on the blog if you want to make your own.
