I think I’ve bought this frame more than over a year ago for only three euros.
It had the most hideous embroidered fabric (think orange-yellow sunset with dark green fields) but I just liked the frame.
I wanted to turn it into a chalk board but it ended up in the back of our closet. That was until a few weeks ago. I was about to return it to the thriftstore when I decided to just try it out and it was really simple and quick to do. The chalk paint needs some time to dry though (me being all impatient) but it turned out quite fun I think!
I still have another large chalk board in my mind from Bloomingville but that one comes with a large pricetag as well;-)
So in the meantime this will do.
Have a lovely weekend!
Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted my last wednesday wishes. But I’ve found some really cute stuff on the web that I had to share. Zara’s mini lookbook did a good job again (can they ever do wrong really?)
First of all I LOVE these dolls, and how about the repainted ladder for storage? Not to mention the super simple but oh so nice garland….
I think I need some extra time the upcoming weeks, because I have some serious crafting to do..
My ever growing collection of masking tape, stamps, twine and stickers needed a new home badly.
I cleaned out a few jars, removed the labels (bye bye pickles) and simply spray painted the cover in a copper colour.
I really like the the result and now I can actually see what I have in storage. Jars are so fun to reuse, the possibilities are endless!
I’ll keep them clean and simple for now, maybe I’ll put some tags on them later.
Have you ever reused jars?
Since I quit my job to become a full time mommy last year (wich could be considered a full time job as well) I’ve been superduper crafty. My head is exploding with ideas to craft and create.
So last christmas (hello Wham) I’ve seen a lot of DIY’s with clay on pinterest. I liked the idea of making ornaments, except that I like to do things a little different. I literally woke up a few weeks ago with the idea to make a garland of feathers, dip dyed in black, dark pink and copper.
Said and done.
This was such an easy DIY and a lot of fun. I have lots of feathers left for other variations (think mint green, copper and bright pink).
Do you like the results?
I fancy everything pastel so these pompoms had to come home with me. Usually I buy lots of decorations because of the colour (recognizable?) but I never end up using them. But there is something that I love about these pompoms, they’re very festive and turn everyday into a little party :-) score!
Have a great week!
As we speak we are on the road to experience some real winter (because we didn’t had any over here).
We’re going to hit the slopes, make long walks, ride the sleigh.. All with our little girl. It’s her first trip abroad (not that she’s aware yet, I’m the one that’s acting all excited) but I’m really looking forward to some quality time.
There are a few post scheduled for next week, so I’ll still be around;-)
See you soon!
Remember a while ago I mentioned my newest obession for pink walls in our living room?
Said and done. It took me a little longer than I thought (read: used the wrong colour at first) but now it’s exactly how I wanted it to be.
The paint is from Painting the Past, colour ‘rose white’.
It’s a fresh and very light pastel pink, but not too much for the living room. Because we don’t want it to be very Barbie, after all there’s a man living in this house as well ;-)
It was kind of difficult to capture the right shade with my camera, but this is pretty much how it looks.
Do you like it? Would you go for a pink shade in your living room?
I have a hate/love relationship with mondays. Mostly hate, because of the long week that’s ahead, the end of a fun and relaxing weekend, a pile of laundry waiting.. But at the other hand, sometimes it’s good to kickstart the week with some good cleaning, healthy food, some excercize..
But this monday it was quite the hate monday, I totally didn’t feel like cleaning (or healthy food for that matter). So I had a fun day with my little girl, playing in her room while mommy could do some styling and decorating :-)
Here’s a chair I scored at the thriftstore (surpriiiiise!) a few weeks back. After a few coats with soft pink paint, it literally matches in every room (that includes the hallway as well).
Have a good week!
No folks, I haven’t vanished or left for a vacation somewhere far away (boy does that sound good right now!).
I’ve been really busy with all sorts of fun projects around the house. The last two weeks I’ve been chrocheting, painting furniture, making garlands and much more. The only problem is that I have to finish some of these things first before starting something new (hence my absence).
And on top of that I did style and shoot some pictures last week, but they came out totally blurry. Bummer!
Now I’m waiting for some natural light wich is kind of difficult with this gloomy weather. I like to take most pictures in my daughters room because the light in there is so good. But she’s a sleepyhead so my chances are little.
I’ll be back soon, pinky swear ;-)
Ps. I’m all about mint green these days. Just love it!
Just a short post, I did a lot of painting around the house last week. When it’s grey and cold outside you just have to make the best of it inside right? :-)
These three candlesticks are -again- thriftstore finds. I was in a ‘pinning’ mood around the house with some old pictures, fun cards and other stuff. The white card from Jots really reminds me to kick some ass everyday. ‘Today is the day’ sounds really exciting, like there is something big waiting for me.
Now in real life there is nothing big waiting for me* (*no..no… unfortunately no doctor Mc. Dreamy waiting outside or a huge bowl of Ben and Jerry’s in my fridge) unless I work for it** (**Okay, we can do the Ben and Jerry’s thing, but the Mc. Dreamy stuff… nope..)
I’ve been having fun ambitions for so long that it really is time to wake up and chase them! So having this fun card in the hallway reminds me to go for it.
Hoe about you? Do you have any wild ambitions?
I wish you all a great weekend!
