|Here are some DIY’s that I have bookmarked over the past year that I really do want to try and use in my home. I currently have so many projects that they can only be an inspiration for the hopefully near future.|
Although I do enjoy a good DIY project, I tend to steer towards projects that have more bang for the buck. By that I mean I don’t want to have to devote too much time, but I still would like the satisfaction of completing a lovely work. I have seen some really intricate projects that look wonderful, but I can’t wrap my head around spending a month on one detail (one day, perhaps I will mature into a person who can do that). So, these hand selected projects, I think I can handle and still feel proud :)
1. Ruffled Pillow: My living room seating has definitely been missing some flava! I have a handful of various pillows that I want to add to my seating areas. I love the texture of this pillow and it can be done, not only with left over bridesmaid attire, but really with most any fabric with a little pizazz.
2. Roman Shade: This is a great idea that can save some money and enable me to have a custom look at a fraction of the price. I am probably only making two for my bathroom windows, so it is not going to be a daunting task.
3. Chandelier: Lighting makes such a key element in all interior spaces that many times can be quite easily overlooked. This is definitely an inspiration piece for me. The industrial quality and custom look are aspects that I want to mimic in my bedroom, the shape and color will most likely be different.
4. Mobiles: I love a good whimsical DIY and I think this is just the project. Mobiles or “kinetic sculptures” add interest and fun without being childish (unless creating a kid themed mobile). Just the kind of cheerful extra needed to brighten the day.
5. Faux porcelain: OHHHHH, AAAHHHH….that’s right party peoples–this is some serious frugal elegance waiting to capture the hearts of millions all over the globe. These little touches of faux porcelain can add extra texture and deliciousness to simple spaces. I plan to make some to display in my kitchen and perhaps in other unforeseen places.
