My old prom shoes from when my fiancé and I went together. I painted the bottom of them with acrylic paint I had laying around and cleaned
Gold Painted Leaves....This project was so easy! I had the frames and gold paint already on hand. I used one red oak, one white oak and one maple leaf from my yard. All i did was paint the leaves gold and when they were dry I framed them!
I want these to be my wedding shoes! They had my size at lunch but I couldn't purchase from my iphone so when I went to buy tonight--they
Had this piece of wood I had from high school just laying around the house. Painted it then nailed white fabric tacs into it.
DIY bow holder I used an old frame and covered the card board with left over giraffe print material from my daughter's 1st bday. Then I hot glued the ends of the extra purple ribbon I had from the part across the board onto the back of the board. I put spray painted cup hooks on the bottom. Hung it Vertically on the wall (tall-not long and laying down)
took an old window and painted the back using paint and my star stencil. I used both house paint and craft paint that I had on hand. I added a touch of brown to my white because I wanted a more distressed look on my old window. I started with the white, wait for it all to dry then paint blue over the white stars in one thick stroke. Do another coat when it drys if desired. Then paint the red stripes
Nice touch in my mudroom. I went to the dollar store for the frames, I had the paint, and the cute little dog tail hangers are from Ikea!
Neat ideas for the home
For cute! I have so many old buttons laying around! I could make a million of them!
Painted Ikea dresser. I really want to paint our bedroom Ikea furniture in our new house....now to convince my fiancé.... :)
Horseshoe shelf brackets- these are so easy with a welder.. I had this idea and Bourguiba shelves from ikea and a friend welded these together for me. As well as used some old horse shoes and their nails to make key rings/ coat hangers to stick on the wall. I love them!
Our family name. I purchased extra large cardboard letters from Joann's last year and had the kids (and my husband and I) paint them.
For the Someday
Basement before and after. I had a really ugly cement floor, but because my basement gets water sometimes (minor), I didn't want carpet. I used cement paint (brown), along with paint chips (natural tones) from Behr. Super easy and looks great! Best result for paint chips is to throw in the air like confetti. And the kids had fun helping with that! The walls are covered with twin bed sheets and the bottom border is old folding closet doors.
Pallet couch - We wanted a comfy couch area for under our, almost 13 yr old, daughters loft bed. Went pallet shopping..near some dumpsters of course. Used 1 1/2 pallets. Hubby bolted and braced them together, cut and created some little legs for the bottom of it too. I sanded and painted it all black. Purchased a twin mattress and topped it with a fitted sheet. Made a few pillows ( bought a couple at IKEA) and WA-LAA....perfect hang out area,
ADVENTURES IN DECORATING
The Black Friar Pub, London. A landmark of the city that my parents went to at my age, and that I got to go to with them when they went back. Quite special.
The blue Ritz plate had to be mine because of the fantastic color, but also because I had another blue and white porcelain container from my old apartment in Paris, and I knew they would look perfect together.
I seriously wanna name my kids after PJO characters, and when they find the books laying around the house, I wanna convince them that it really happened, but they don't remember it because Hera sent them back in time and took away their memories.
ReFab Diaries: Repurpose: New shirt from old "highwaters"! WOW!!! Wish I had thought of this years ago when my girls were little.
Dang it. I had the bottom left tat in my head for months, and never found a picture of anything like it. Well, there went my idea.
My son went from happy to terrified in the corn maze. I had to do something - Imgur
LOVE hand and footprints...I made two of these one for my 24 month old and 5 month old....I used canvas and uses the colors teal and white instead!!! Loved the idea made them for my fiancé birthday!!! Also made them vertical instead of horizontal since I did two!!!
DIY scarf holder! Made from old bangles and a hanger, tied together in rings with cotton string! Took maybe ten minutes and I already had the stuff lying around :D
I made my own rock pet in Kindergarten so why not pass on the fun? Mine had one eye and a feather for hair. Have your kids collect rocks and paint them together to make your very own rock family! Directions at Kayboo Creations. #Craft #DIY #Hike #Paint
Salt Dough Handprint Ornaments - After they were cool, I painted them with acrylic paint. After the paint had dried, I sprayed them with clear sealant, which gave them a nice shiny look. For something extra, I took a pic, cut it into a circle and attached with Mod Podge to the back of each ornament. After it was dry, I sprayed it with the clear sealant.
Christmas Gift Ideas
My mom had these cookie cutters when I was growing up. I still have a couple of them!
I love this idea for my Kitchen wall, take some old silverware, paint them and frame them. Perfect.
Making bubble snakes: Simple, easy and made with thing that I had laying around my house. Perfect! All you need is an empty water bottle from your recycling, duct tape, a sock that is missing its match (which we seem to have an abundance of), dish soap and some food coloring.
Baked Chicken Bacon Ranch Taquitos. My very picky 2 year old went nuts over these. My hubby and I loved them too!!
arepas! i had them when i was in Venezuela when i was 8 or 9 years old. after leaving there, i never got to try them anymore~ i miss arepas!
Okay...mine did not look that small when I was done. I used 2-3Tbs of the filling per taquito and mine were a little fatter than that :) Good thing is they were super easy to put together and super tasty!! All of the kids (and the husband) loved them. Even my 6 year old that suddenly thinks everything except chicken nuggets and hot dogs is gross. Next time I will make a double batch and freeze some. It was even faster to make because I used some of my shredded chicken I had previously froze. ...
I am IN LOVE with this photo collage wall. I wish I had seen this several months ago when I was putting together my own...
