I was de-cluttering the closets a few weeks ago, taking out the winter things, and getting rid of stuff that we no longer want and found myself with quite a few pieces of clothes. I usually donate them but sometimes, if I see something that I really like I keep it and re-purpose it into pillows. Because really pillows can be made out of almost any fabric. Today I'll be sharing 5 ways on how to make easy pillows out of fabric remnants.
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.
It is finally starting to feel like fall around here and I think just in time since the first day of fall was this past Saturday. Have I ever told you how much I love fall?
And to celebrate this most special day of all (for me anyway) I chose to make a simple fall wreath. So today I'm sharing how you can make a simple dollar store fall wreath.
With the summer heat it has been hard for me to get motivated to do much of anything. Have you all heard about the legendary New York humidity? As many of you know, I am supposed to be working on making the bedroom look presentable, I even made a mood board. But so far things have been slow. It takes a lot to get me to paint these days with Tatou, our puppy, running around.
One thing I did manage to tackle has been the bed. This is how it looked before but I knew it needed a lot of help to look presentable. Today I am going to show you how to make an easy no-sew bed skirt with drop cloth. Along with some other tricks!
I have been back in the USA for almost a year and yet I have not done a patriotic project. Oh I have a flag or two in the house. But with the Fourth of July coming up I felt it was time to create something a little special.
Today I am sharing with you how to make easy patriotic art with fabric scraps. Because the flag looks great outside, but we shouldn't neglect the interior of our homes.
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.
