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.
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, but this time I have a surprise. We have changed our logo because there are more blogging friends that are joining us.
Last time we got together we had done a project on pebbles and rocks. This time around we are doing a different theme each month using the anniversary gifts by year as our guideline. So if you are up on your anniversary gifts you will know that the first year is paper. This time around I am going to share how to make practical cardboard paper cubes for storage.
I have kept old furniture from a lifetime ago, always trying to re-use it over the years. I had this particular piece for over 22 years. It was a storage unit for my kids' toys and such. But after so many years I had grown tired of the look.
Έχω φυλάξει παλιά έπιπλα, προσπαθώντας πάντα να τα επαναχρησιμοποιήσω όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Είχα αυτό το συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι για πάνω από 22 χρόνια. Ήταν μια μονάδα αποθήκευσης για τα παιχνίδια των παιδιών μου. Αλλά μετά από τόσα χρόνια είχα βαρεθεί την εμφάνιση.
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!
Some of you may know that we've had a new addition to our household. Actually you should all know since I've been showing off my Mother's Day gift every chance I get. It's a Labrador puppy and we have named him Tatou.
Yes Tatou has taken over our lives and our home. It is littered with puppy toys and leashes, schedules and you name it. Things were all over the place till I remembered that I had a piece of plywood and decided to do some housecleaning.
It was time to take matters into my DIY hands and create a command center for my dog! I never in a million years expected to be doing a project like this. Haha!
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.
