DIY Conundrum

DIY Conundrum: To paint or not to paint.... Upholstered furniture that is...


Via Hyphen Interiors

Hey guys! Have you seen this before? People are actually PAINTING their UPHOLSTERED furniture with a mixture of latex paint (aka house paint) and fabric medium (used to keep 'wearables' somewhat flexible and soft after being painted/decorated).

Crazy right???!!! But the results have actually been pretty shocking... shockingly great! See, I have this large settee/sofa that I have been procrastinatin...

New Year New Room

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, January 2, 2013, In : Home Sneek Peek 


New paint color really. Truth is that I was never really sold on the color our master had been. I was going for a sophisticated gray with a hint of lavender. In my mind it was going to be classy, moody, unique.
Unique is right.... it came out straight up PURPLE. A weird mauve in your face purplish tone. In the early morning light I was ok with it, but every other time I was just annoyed when I caught a glimpse of it. Heck... I even painted a mural over it to try and change my heart about it. N...

DIY Glitter Glue and Paint

Posted by Honor on Monday, October 29, 2012, In : Crafter's Toolbox 


This recipe (minus the glitter) is perfect for homemade glue or wallpaper paste as well!

Tips & Tricks: This recipe makes one large bowl or about 4 pint mason jars worth. I like making this amount because it is easy to save, and I go through about this much in a weeks time. We love our crafting around these here parts, especially now that it is holiday season. October till end of December is holiday season for us.

This recipe really is simple. I have seen some crafters heat this stuff up, or a...

DIY Faux Beaded Top

Posted by Honor on Friday, September 7, 2012, In : Clothing 
  
Ok so this DIY is a total rip off of my DIY Faux 'Beaded' Indian Beaded Bracelet, same concept just applied differently...I guess I am just flattering myself by copying it :)

   So this whole husband working nights has really freed up some time for me. I probably could go completely 'old lady' and pick up hand embroidery and hand beading (no offense if you enjoy these past times... but I have yet to encounter a fellow 26 year old who does ;). I love the look but not so in love with the effo...

DIY No Beading Indian Beaded Bracelet

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, August 14, 2012, In : Accessories 
so lately I have really been feeling the Indian beaded bracelet look. Perfect for summer. Free spirited. Just plain cool and they really never go out of style. A classic.





What is not so cool is how time consuming they seem to be. Granted I have never tried to make one, they just seem to be time consuming.

Plus I don't have any of the supplies required to make them.

So here is what I believe to be a clever way to make a faux Indian beaded bracelet.



   I picked up a pack ...

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...

Driftwood Crafts: Painbrush, Pen or Toothbrush Holder

Posted by Honor on Friday, July 6, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

This scenario went down yesterday.

The hubs came rushing in out of the garage while on the phone saying 'Hold on let me get a pen'. He was in hot pursuit of a killer Craigslist deal and needed to get all the details. He rummaged around in one junk drawer.

Then moved on the the next.

And the next.

Then utensils, plates and pots and pans were rattled and strewn about, until he shoots me a dirty look and rushes out of the room again. It happens all the time. Got me thinking that I need a place f...

Hot Air Balloon Paper Lantern


My baby boy is almost here! I am so excited to meet him and frankly I am sooooo over being pregnant. We plan on having Lou and the baby share a room while they are little and I currently love how Lou's room is decorated but fact is... it is a little girly. I want to stay far away from the split up 'boy side & 'girl side'  feeling that many shared gender rooms have, but I do need to add a few more neutral or 'boy' features to the room. With that being said I came ...
