I love a little somethin’ somethin’ to spruce up a space and let me tell you Pinterest is the answer to my inspiration dreams! I love this key hanger cause lets face it key hangers are fugly, functional but so ugly! Well Becky had given me this amazing fabric and I thought to myself ‘girl you need a pop next to the front door so, with some composition board (that cj sawed perfectly) a scrap of fabric and some hooks!! Well we stretched the fabric and stapled it to the wood, screwed the hooks in and put a hanger on the back it is a mellow focal point in the white frames!! I get compliments all.the.time!
You can DIY haha
For realz my DIY projects are to the moon and back!! So, sense we have gotten rid of Internet I am going to do my best to post from the library once a week on things like budgeting, but once a week I will be bringing you an awesome DIY from my phone!! This week?!
Revamp the shade!
First grab your gnarly lamp shade
Next grab some awesome fabric (mine are circles from a dress I made once
Cut your fabric I did half circle around the bottom of my shade
Grab your adhesive spray or packing tape if you have no idea where your spray is 😉
Light up the room and watch your fabric shine through!!!
My life has transformed much like this wardrobe! Aka step by step furniture makeover!
The $35 thrift store wardrobe
The finished product
The step by step!
We started by sanding it down- look at that beautiful wood
After Sanding…and sanding…an sanding for like 2 weeks, we washed the wood off with water and a rag.
Now we tried spray paint…and switched to antique white wall paint which gave the piece a nice vintage feel
Then I decided on making a stencil of a trellis and decided that was a dumb fucking idea and taped on chevron which took f o r e v e r!!! Or three days!
I love this wardrobe, the symbolism to me and how awesome is turned out!!
Our move is fast approaching only 2.5 weeks!! So, naturally opt to go to the circus! I have never been to a circus, here are my sweet babies at the circus!!!
Although this weekend we did some stuff done, like a garage sale, started my herb garden, donated a ton of stuff to goodwill and finished sanding the wardrobe (to be painted tomorrow!). I am so not ready do move but so excited! I will be posting a step by step trellis how to tomorrow!!
