DIY Anthropologie Feather and Antler Ornaments

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 20, 2014, In : Holiday Decorations 

So it's a balmy 72 degrees outside and you're trying to get into the holiday spirit, what do you do? First off, yes, I live in San Diego, so yes, it really is 72 or really closer to 78 outside. Snowpocalypse? What's that? Is it really lovely all the time here? Definitely. Hard to get into the holiday spirit? Excruciatingly so. My go to besides spotify is the anthropolgie website. It's always packed with cutesie snow/holiday themed graphics and gimmicks perfectly aimed to get you into the holi...

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...

I Am Hacking Up Some Ikea

Posted by Honor on Thursday, August 22, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 
Thanks to one of my fav blogs, The Hunted Interior, I have become a hypocrite.
Just kidding
But not really. I must eat my words. After I saw this diy, I knew I had to made an exodus to the giant blue and yellow warehouse to pick up this table,
 the Ikea Vittsjo nesting coffee table, to give it a good ol hack.

I have been searching, and pining, and meditating on finding a new glass and brass coffee table. But to no such luck. Until.... untillllllll ^^^^^^^

So I made the schlep downtown and had a g...

DIY Easy Gold Chevron Art

Posted by Honor on Monday, August 19, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

Thought I would ease back into my diy'n from my 'summer break' with a real quick and easy art diy.

I am doing a bit of a rearranging in our upstairs media/family room. I recently got rid of our mile long ancient davenport and now I'm trying to gear the decor to a bit more sophisticated Spanish revival type feel. So while I figure out what I really want I needed a space saver. Some quick, easy and cheap art to fill up the blank loveseat wall. Yes, I could leave well enough alone and not put an...

DIY Layered Gold Mercury Glass

Posted by Honor on Thursday, July 18, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

Anyone else a gold lover?

Me?

I can't get enough of the stuff.

 I say bring on the gaudy chunky gold chains, fancy gilt picture frames, glittery gold nailheads on furniture, and glitzy gold buttons and baubles on my clothing. I always find myself reaching for the gold version of whatever as compared to it's equally glamorous cousin, silver. I find gold to be warmer, more inviting. But that's just me.

   Another thing I love? Antique mirrors...or mercury glass to be more exact. Ever since the wo...

DIY Cowhide Rug From A Drop Cloth

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 


You are either firmly on the cowhide decor train or you're not. I, sadly, am (or was, wink wink ) frantically racing to hop onto that train, but my darn piggy bank full of pennies and not benggies was weighing me down. Wah-wah. On the low (as in crappy) end a cowhide will cost you at least $300 and on the upper (as in baller) end one little rug will cost you a couple grand.  Not that long ago I was perusing pinterest and found these stunners from Shades of Light....





What more do you need? Cowh...

DIY Hammered Gold Picture Frame

Posted by Honor on Friday, April 26, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 








Aren't they purdy? I am just lovin how they turned out. I have a slight confession to make, I am an ugly picture frame hoarder. Bum bum bum baaah.  Just can't help myself! Ever since I learned how to make mercury glass or antique mirrors, I've been snatching up any goodwill/thrift store/swap meet shenanigans I can get my hands on. So needless to say I have a huge stash that I can 'operation craft' on. But a house can handle only so many antique mirrors. Time to spruce up the frames and let th...

DIY Gold Glitter Chevron Pillow

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 

 Chevrons, gold, glitter... what more can a gal ask for in a throw pillow? This past weekend the hubs and I did a craigslist run and picked up the most ridiculously glamorous FREE sofa. Sing it with me 'free free free set me free, free free sofa I can't believe you were free!'
 Mohair velvet, single owner, camel back... just plain vintage gold (yes that is an underline there). Basically I am in styling heaven right now rearranging furniture and accessories. But alas, none of the pillows on han...
