Think Again Thursday #7 | DIY Framed Fabric Art

Hello! Today’s post is short, sweet and so simple, I can’t even call it a tutorial! If you remember back to my Bold Graphic Glam Dining Room I revealed during week 6 of the Fall 2016 One Room Challenge, then you probably recall seeing my stacked art that flank one of the windows in the space. I’m finally sharing the details for the bright and colorful pieces hanging in here! Let me give you a quick break-down of the “art” you see and then show you how I created this look!

How to DIY Geometric Art That Looks High-End

Sometimes it all comes together in a cinch. You have a DIY idea or are inspired by something, in my case an idea for a DIY geometric art piece, already have the supplies on-hand, sit down to work on it and the entire process only takes about 15 minutes. Want to know what’s even better than that?

A Sharpie was all I needed to put the finishing touches on it! Shhh don’t tell! Continue reading

DIY Geometric Dresser Makeover [Curious Little Gentleman Big Boy Room Project]

Phew! Now that the Fall ORC has concluded, I can finally come up for some air! Right now is most certainly the calm before the storm around here. The calm being the couple of weeks I’m trying to lay low, catch up on sleep, get organized around the house after a 6-week dining room makeover that created a tornado-like aftermath in every other room in our home and then enjoy Thanksgiving next week with family. The storm being… the holidays! I mean that only in a way that a fellow blogger might understand. But looking back at pre-blog life, I would say the holidays can get a little cray cray anyways!

Well, today I’m taking a few minutes to post one of the promised follow-up posts from both the Curious Little Gentleman Big Boy Room. I realize I owe you probably close to 10 for the biggest’s room and most recently my One Room Challenge Dining Room Reveal and while I’ll work to get them out to you soon, I am going to have to put a few holiday posts in the mix as well. It’s just that time of year now, don’t you agree?! Continue reading

DIY No-Sew Pom-Pom Trim Curtains | Create & Share Challenge

Hi there, guys! Happy Wednesday and welcome to this month’s Create & Share DIY Challenge! It’s been a couple of months since I was able to participate, but I am so happy to be back in action for this month’s theme – white curtains! There is nothing I love more than being able to shop my own house and bring decor pieces out of storage into a new space or bounce something from room-to-room. It’s frugal and fun and gives you the opportunity to recall why you fell in love with that piece in the first place. If you’re able to fall head-over-heels in love with your home over and over again, then you’re doing something right! Continue reading

Create & Share Challenge | DIY Color Block Lamp

Hello! And welcome to the Create & Share LAMP-alooza! I am so excited to be joining forces with a group of bloggers to bring you a total of 11 fabulous DIY lighting projects this month! Whether you’re looking to repurpose something INTO a lamp, makeover a thrifted one or simply recover that old-lamp-sitting-in-your-guestroom’s-shade – we are here to help you channel your inner DIY boss and be inspired to create!

Although this is my first time participating, typically the Create & Share Challenges feature a specific product for the month and each blogger has to come up with their own way to create something from that one item. The goal being that everyone will put their own spin on their project and no 2 pieces will come out looking the same! Well, with the amount of talent in the group, there’s no denying the projects are off the charts on the creativity scale. Inspiration for daaaays. Continue reading

Inspired by DIY | Anthropologie Inspired Frame

Another Inspired by DIY is HERE!
This month 6 of us selected an item from Anthropologie that inspired us to create a similar item of our own! If you’ve ever browsed Anthro’s website or milled around in the store, you know that it is filled with some of the most gorgeous home decor pieces…aaaaannnd most of them are pretty pricey. There are a few Anthropologie items that I love, like their capri blue candle—I always keep a couple on hand AND they have some of the best selection of hardware around, none of which I have pooled up enough cash money to purchase, though!
But nonetheless, their merchandise is incredibly unique and simply beautiful. When I laid eyes on Anthropologie’s Butterfly Joint Frame, I knew I wanted to tackle it on my own! It sort of reminded me of a Kate Spade piece, which was our very first Inspired by DIY theme. [Check out my KS inspired vase here!]
