I had an accident about a month ago. No, it wasn't a big deal but it forced me to repaint my front door. Which actually kinda needed it anyway.
Today I am showing you how to paint your front door for a sturdy finish. One that will last through even a nor'easter!
The day has finally arrived when I am ready to show you the bedroom reveal. You know the one I started almost six months ago?? I must be a world class procrastinator!
I did a lot of work in this room but mostly I did a lot of thinking. What are the right colors within my limitations? How can I up-cycle the items I already have? But mostly I hung out with this little guy!
And I had a lot of help from you, my readers to create a calm look for a bedroom using vintage, thrifted and Ikea items.
Welcome to our One Hundred Thirtieth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
We went up for a drive last weekend and took our dog with us. But he is really not meant to be around other dogs. He was barking at all the other dogs and wanted to play with them. We don't have problems when he is at the dog park but when he is on a leash he is out of control. We need a trainer asap! Have a wonderful weekend!!
The party starts on Fridays 7am EST or 11 am GMT and runs until Tuesday. By joining us every week you will be able to grow your blog and gather inspiration from so many others who link up to our party. We hope you will join us every week to share and inspire with your projects and creations.
We will be visiting all of you who link up with us and sharing, pinning all that good stuff. We really do appreciate your visits.
A lifetime ago I started working on the bedroom makeover. And I know it is taking forever and I know that I've been working on other rooms as well but it seems I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
This shelf you see below is the last of the projects for the bedroom (all projects are listed on the bottom) before the small reveal... because it really is a small room - New York living folks! Today I'm sharing with you a simple makeover of a wall mounted shelf and a super easy way to add shimmer to that shelf.
It is that time of the month again when I join my friends and we bring to you our unique projects from all over the world. Yes I am talking about the International Bloggers Club. Last month we started a new theme that involves using the Anniversary years as our guideline. We featured projects with paper last month and this month we are going to show you ideas with cotton.
I had gone shopping at a Marshall's and seen this gnome. And I was going to buy it too since it was so cute. But then I thought "what sort of self-respecting DIYer am I to buy one when I can make it." And since I knew this month we should be working on cotton with the IBC I decided that should be my project.
But did I succeed? You will have to decide. And so I share with you how to fail miserably at gnome making.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
