My 4 AM usually consists of DVR or Netflix, food sitting somewhere on the floor or couch, my drill, dremel, and paint.
Since Mr. Superman deployed, I got more into DIY decor and refinishing furniture. My good friend Nikki, is a seriously incredible designer and she helped me a ton in teaching me techniques and easier ways to do things.
Now that I have a collection of stuff I've done and on my To Do List I figured why not share it with my Lovelies? Without further ado, we dive in!
Labor day for me consisted of Michael's coupons and the ever amazing Sammy as my companion. I had one thing on my list that I KNEW I would be getting.
A wreath form.
I have about a gazillion wreaths I want to make but the one I settled on was a sheet music wreath. Rather than spending a buttload of money on actual sheet music or even better, antique sheet music, I bought paper in the color "Old Parchment", downloaded and printed a free printable vintage French music page, and made 50 copies.
The wreath form was wrapped in ribbon at the top (so I had something to hang it from) and sheet music on the rest. I then fan folded the rest of the paper, hot glued it, and then on the inside, scrunched up some natural colored coffee filters to cover the drips of hot glue. I had gotten a wooden cut out and mod podged more paper on it before I glued that to the bottom of the wreath. It got hung on a teal 'S' wreath hook and there you have it! Easy peasy.
The next project was NOT planned but I saw a box of matches and just had to go for it.
I hate sunburst mirrors.
I just flat out hate them.
Its fine and dandy if any of you Lovelies have one or if you love them but they are just not my thing.
Anyway this is a lead in to what I did with some footlong matches.
I broke about 50 of them in half and glued them to the back of a tiny little frame I got from Michael's for a dollar then hung it up on my collage wall.
I quite love it.
Way better than a sunburst mirror and about as close as you'll ever find in my house.
I love pendant banners.
I just think they are the cutest thing and always wanted to make one but never had the ambition to make one.
Well on that fateful Labor Day expedition, I got a bunch of linen wine bags at Michael's for a dollar and brought them home completely unsure of what I would do with them.
I ended up cutting them leaving me with two long pieces.
I then folded them all over some twine, glued the center so they would stay, and hung it in our sitting room above the couch.
That wall is still missing something. It just doesn't look finished or right to me at all but I cannot figure out what to do with it!
