DIY Ballard Designs Gilt Mirror

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, In : Decor Crafts 

   Back for a super duper quick DIY. Doesn't really need much explanation as it's really just'a simple refashion. Spray paint really is a fantastic invention don't-cha know?! You can do so much with so little effort, time and mula.

I spotted these gray plastic ombre mirrors for sale from Target and thought Holy Crap! These look just like the Ballard Designs mirror tryptic that I have been coveting. And covet on and on I'd thought I'd be, until I spotted these cute little suckers for $12. Tota...

DIY Kids Splatter Art on a Drop Cloth

Posted by Honor on Sunday, January 26, 2014, In : Decor Crafts 

   The kids are restless, I am restless. I have long since reached and passed the 'I'm so over this' part of pregnancy that I'm ready to start doing jumping jacks while running up and down stairs while eating pineapple and drinking castor oil if I knew it would make this kid come out any faster. But alas I must follow the Doc's advice of 'He will come when he comes' and 'rest'.... Uh, yeah right.  I am also continuing to nest even though I have scrubbed every surface, hung every picture, wash...

DIY Gallery Wall: Chalkboard Canvases

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

When this diy came to me I smacked myself on the forehead and said "Doy!".

So....I have been slacking on getting the kids room together. Seriously slacking. But this weekend I got it in my head to get'er done.... well, at least started. My first mission: The Gallery Wall.
But
always a but
I didn't want to spend a thing. And I didn't. I gathered up some old canvases from the depths of the hall closet and spray painted them with chalkboard paint. The canvases were sourced from Hobby Lobby (intend...

DIY Gold Love Art Sign

Posted by Honor on Friday, March 22, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

I am feeling super in love lately, and when I feel extra mushy gushy I just have to express it... craft wise. Yesterday was the mister and mine's third anniversary and I whipped up this little number to satisfy my desire to shout it from the rooftops. It's a pretty and shiny beacon of joy. When I walk in the bedroom and see it, it brings a smile to my face. On a side note this piece of art would also be totally adorable in say a nursery, living room, bedroom, garage, cellar, dungeon ect. You ...

DIY Wrought Iron Artwork From Rubber Door Mat

Posted by Honor on Saturday, March 9, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 


Pretty excited about this one. Most of my diy projects turn out fine, but it's only a select few that turn out extra supercalafragalisticexpealadocious.... or 'thats co' in man talk. If I get a, 'that's nice honey' from the huz then I know my project turned out awwwwesome.
Earlier this week I took the kids to one of my favorite places to gather inspiration, Balboa Park. I went there looking for landscaping ideas, but left with my eyes wide wanting some wrought (or cast) iron artwork for the ho...

Wood, Nail & String Art Plus Office Peek

Posted by Honor on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 


As I mentioned before, we swapped rooms. Me and my little girl that is. I took over her bedroom for my office and she and her little brother are in the other spare room. It is twice the size and just perfect for two little hooligans to do cartwheels in. As for my 'new' office I decided to leave the paint color and just work with what I have around the house to decorate and style. Boy do I have a lot of stuff. It sure is pretty though. Purging tchotskies is not a strong suit of mine. I am a cl...

Painted Cross Stitch Wall Mural DIY

Posted by Honor on Thursday, August 9, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 
so you may have seen this image floating around pinterest or general cyberspace....


  This bedroom belongs to the fantastically talented Dutch Artist and Illustrator Eline Pellinkhof . Her cute and creative casa was featured here. Her home is warm and full of interesting nooks and crannies... but it is this painted wall that really got my creative juices flowing... maybe even turned those juices little green because 'why didn't I think if that?!' But any-who I am glad that she shared her lovel...

DIY Anthropologie Art

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, August 1, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 
Ok. Love anthropologie but sometimes I think 'you got to be kidding me?!' with regards to their prices.

this is a perfect example


Yellow Bird by Tom Judd....

ok yes it is an original painting/collage but REALLY NOW??? $1500 for a 10"x10" piece of art. One thousand five hundred dollars for less than ONE SQUARE FOOT?!?!?!
Bawwwwwhhhhh

So I gave it a try myself. While I am happy with the results I admit that it is not perfect. Well hey now, I'm not a professional artist you know.

Wood Block Art (Reverse Stencil)

Posted by Honor on Thursday, July 26, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 
   So this DIY covers a couple of bases. First off it is an idea for what you can do with those scraps of wood that are laying about. I have a couple of those, well actually maybe a garage full. My hording tendencies kick in and I can't get rid of them. I just can't!
   Second this DIY covers the reverse stencil technique. Pretty simple but easy to over look when you think about stenciling. Lastly it covers how to make your own contact paper. I never have it around but I always seem to need i...

DIY Branchlers

Posted by Honor on Friday, July 13, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 
  

    Branchlers? Yes I said it... branchlers. The hubs is a little peeved about this DIY. He has been nudging me for a while about hanging a deer head or two in the house and I have adamantly said no. Not just no but HELLS NO!
  I am all for hunting and fishing, I just think it crosses the line to bring such game into the house as home decor.... just a tad creepy when you are wandering around in the middle of the night looking to get a glass of water. Just what I need to do is scare the bej...

Wax Paper Pressed Flowers

Posted by Honor on Thursday, March 15, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

  How to Press Flowers with Wax Paper

   Get ready to have a flashback to elementary school with this craft tutorial. This is very similar to melted crayon wax paper crafts, but with a more grown up and 'springy' twist. Now go for a little walk through your yard and pick some interesting little flowers and leaves. The daintier the better, try to avoid bulky roses :) Enjoy!


What you will need: A roll of wax paper, tear off two large sheets. Fresh flowers and leaves (like I said earlier, dainty w...

Button Art

Posted by Honor on Sunday, March 4, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

Does any one else love buttons as much as I do? Every time I head to Micheal's or Hobby Lobby I have to upgrade my button stash just a little bit. And don't even get me started about flea markets and the endless vintage ones I can gorge myself on!
I think I am going to do a series on kids room art work and this will be the first one. Fairly simple. You can do letters like this tutorial demonstrates, or you can do little animals or silhouettes. Really the options are only limited my your creat...
