Hello, my lovelies! Today, I have a project to share with you that I am super duper proud of. This was actually pretty easy and it turned out so great. Talk about maximum yield. Anyone could do this project.
Remember how I’ve been working on my office? It’s kind of all I’ve been talking about lately. Well, I did all the hard stuff a couple weekends ago and have been trying to write up some posts on the projects I had done but the office was a MESS. I mean a real MESS (with all capital letters).
Happy Monday, everyone! I know last week kind of fell apart and there wasn’t really any new content up but this week makes up for it. My office is really coming together now, I’m actually feeling really inspired to work in there. It’s turning into quiet the creative space. I’m glad you guys are here to see the transformation!
This weekend was all about chalk painting. I decided to get to a couple painting jobs that I had been procrastinating and it all looks great! Do you do that too? Hold off on something forever just because you don’t want to start it. Getting started really is the hardest part. Everything else just falls into place. Here’s what happens when you actually start something!
Welcome back to the beginning of another week! Today I have a pretty exciting project for you guys. While I’m here, visiting my mom, she decided to paint her bedroom set and so far we have the nightstands done. I LOVE them! Such a great improvement. We used the Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is very similar to the Fusion paint I used for my Dining Room Set. They’re both mineral based paints so they don’t require any sanding or extensive prep work (yay!).
Earlier this year I went yard saling (have I mentioned how much I LOVE yard saling? It’s like treasure hunting. In some ways, that makes me a pirate, I guess… maybe I’m reaching) and I was able to buy three boxes of mason jars for $5. I was pretty darn pleased with myself on that purchase. I mean, think of all the projects! Unfortunately, I haven’t done anything with them until now. You know how it is, that pesky thing called life got in the way. But now I’m racking my brain for different uses for these jars, so keep an eye out for that. The first thing I did was to make this soap dispenser. It was so easy! And it’s pretty awesome. Now, instead of the ugly soap bottle that the dish soap comes in, I have this delightful soap dispenser.
It’s Monday again and I have a great project ready to share with you guys. Somehow though, I managed to delete all my “in progress” pictures except for one picture of the frame before I painted it. I swear I took the pictures but it’s looking like my memory is getting to the point where I should start to be concerned. Either way, it’s not a very difficult project and each and every one of you can do it easily in one afternoon. Without further ado, here you have it:
Monday is here and this week is marking the beginning of a new series: DIY Mondays. I’ve been feeling like I’ve completely neglected the DIY portion of this blog, which is really awful considering that’s probably the main reason I started this blog in the first place. It all started with my Dining Room Set Makeover and since then I’ve felt like I need to do BIG projects. I’ve come to the realization that there are a lot of small, everyday DIY projects that I can do, so that’s the plan. I will be posting something DIY every Monday going forward. That being said, this project took me all of 30 minutes, and it’s pretty darn awesome.
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve done a DIY post! They really do take the most time. I have so much respect for DIY bloggers that put up new DIYs every day! It’s incredible. I need to start doing projects that don’t take hours to complete, that’s the trick. That isn’t the case with this one, though. I would say it took about three and a half hours after all is said and done but it would take far less time if I were to do it again because getting started was the hardest part. Lucky for you, I’ve done all the preliminary measuring so if you do this yourself, there’s no math involved of you. Just follow these instructions and you’ll be on the right track.
