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.
A happy November to all! I hope you've all taken out your sweaters and winter clothes. The first thing that comes to my mind after I put all the Halloween decor away is how to decorate for Christmas. You may say it's too early, but in fact, it is just the right time to start thinking about Christmas. In our home it is a grand affair, not just a tree, so planning has to be done in advance. Done by me, that is, because no one else will bother with all this stuff.
So let's kick the Christmas planning off with a tutorial on How to Make a Christmas Wreath with Metallic Accents.
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.
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.
