This is the first project I ever did for our home! It is a mirror that I painted with blackboard paint and it is in our foyer. I love it. :) I call it my Fancy Chalkboard and you can read it's tutorial here.
While I had the chalk paint out, I also painted these which appear throughout our house. They were just regular picture frames. I painted the glass that protects the pictures. Very simple, very easy, and it's a sweet little touch that I love. :) The first one (the one about pee) is in the guest bathroom. The Mr. & Mrs. one is in the living room, and the "Hey Punkin" one was in the kitchen for Halloween.
(Sorry for the bad picture quality) I used some burlap as the liner of a gift basket for my maid of honor. I had some left over. Pinterest is all about framing fabric! So... I had a tiny frame. The guest bathroom wall already had a tiny nail. I used a tiny scrap. Voila!
In the same bathroom hangs more left-over burlap. I hung it on another existing nail, tied some ribbon around it's middle. It's simple and it is nothing fancy, but I like it's rustic little self!
As for the remaining burlap? Well...I discovered fabric roses! And the burlap and I had a splendid love affair that resulted in precious, burlap rose babies! I owe all of the credit to Pinterest for the millions of fabric-flower-tutorials it offers!
I used a hot-glue gun to add these wonderful flowers to a lamp I had revamped! (Tutorial to come soon!) This picture really does them no justice. :(
I purchased this bookshelf from Wal-Mart for like $10 about a thousand years ago for my very first apartment. :) Memories.. The vinyl decal came from Hobby Lobby. I thought it was precious. :) It's an easy way to spruce up a sad little bookcase.
Here is a book shelf in our huge entertainment stand we have in the living room! :) From left to right... the cream "R" with the decals on it was something my mom and I made for the wedding. The gold "R" laying down was purchased from Hobby Lobby. I painted another picture frame with chalk and wrote an "R". The tiny "R" coaster is something my sister & MOH made for us as a wedding gift in her ceramics class. The Backward's R (which is my favorite) is a paper-mache I bought at Hobby Lobby & painted. The other cream, smaller "R" came from Hobby Lobby as is. The brown, curly "R" came from Hobby Lobby. It's just solid wood and I painted it. This whole shelf was SO EASY and is a simple collection I pulled together in honor of OUR last name.
5 picture frames, 5 fabric scraps. :) One old school desk from Salvation Army. So simple! :)
I love my mustache pillow! The full tutorial is here. I found the inspiration for a pillow like this on Etsy, but the inspiration to make it myself came from Pinterest. :) .
There are so many more pictures I could post! It seems to me that Pinterest is popping up in every corner of our home! Every nook and cranny is accounted for and I adore it! But tell me, how has Pinterest helped shape your home? What makes your home your own? I want to hear every DIY, eclectic, fascinating detail! :) I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! I had a great time going through all of my old pictures and finding different Pinterest-inspired projects. Thank you for reading & I hope you'll come back soon!
