Restoration Hardware Inspired Industrial Baskets with Fabric Liners

Restoration Hardware Inspired Industrial Baskets with Fabric Liners

One of my favorite ways to combat the organization of my little guys toys is the use of baskets and bins. They can be found in pretty much in every room of our house and I love being able to quickly clean up by simply walking around and tossing things in. I am also rather fond of the fact that they conceal anything inside {not that I am opposed to having Lighting McQueen or Buzz and Woody the focal point of my decor...well kind of} As I mention before I wanted to add a little storage nook to the living room as it seems that room usually Continue reading

Print Directly on Fabric Using Your Inkjet Printer – Framed Sunshine Printable

Packaged iron on transfers are relatively inexpensive, though the cost can quickly add up if you use them quite a bit; especially on smaller projects you like to frequently change up. If your project allows, it is quite simple to cut out the extra steps of using the transfer sheets all together by printing directly on fabric; just like you would paper using your inkjet printer. The finished look and natural texture of the fabric can easily transform any basic printable into a charming piece of art work with a little added character. {How Continue reading

Create a Custom Natural Wall Art Piece With Wooden Shims

I have a fond love of decorating with do-it-yourself wall art. Filling bare walls can become pretty expensive with custom art pieces and that is only when you can actually find something that truly fits your style and personality. You get exactly what you looking for when you create your own pieces and it is not only fun to stretch your imagination, but far less expensive to fill any size space. I wanted to bring some natural rustic elements into the living room and started playing around with some wooden shims I had left over from this Continue reading

Large Glass Carboy Water Jug Find {& How to Apply Cut Vinyl to Glass}

Large Glass Carboy Water Jug Find {& How to Apply Cut Vinyl to Glass}

I stumbled across this large glass carboy water jug at the local thrift store and couldn't pass it up. I remember growing up my parents had one that they would throw spare change into and I always thought it was pretty cool. The jug itself is pretty heavy and with the added weight of the change they ended up having to break it open when they moved because they could not even pick it up. While I am not really sure what I will end up doing with this one, I thought I would dress it up with some vinyl in the meantime to sit in the living Continue reading
