Weekend DIY|Back in the Game


I finally got my hands on some gold spray paint and all I have to say is: believe the hype!

I feel like King Midas. Everything I touch is turning to gold. If I remember correctly that story didn’t end well!

So I’m trying to practice some restraint with the stuff so that I don’t spray paint my entire house gold. And in order to distract myself, I found some non-gold DIYs to tackle this weekend.

Trunk Cube Tables

With 4 Lack tables from Ikea, these cubes are pretty darn amazing. I’d love to make two of these to add to the end of my bed.

Wait.. what??? I always see sheets that I wish were curtains because they're cheaper! Hot glue ribbon tabs to turn a bed sheet into a no-sew curtain. Genius! - Click image to find more DIY & Crafts Pinterest pins

Making curtains from sheets? Brilliant and way cheaper than curtain panels. And the ribbon on the back? Genius.

This DIY bench looks so easy even I could do it! I’m all over the black and white striped fabric.

These DIY finials would look great styled on a bookshelf. I’m trying to add pops of white to brighten up a dark bookcase I have. This is great cheap option to add something interesting.

So what are you up to this weekend? Do you feel the same about gold spray paint as I do?

  1. Yes, I agree, that terrarium is fabulous.
    Where are you going to find a round mirror if you decide to inset it your Home Goods Find? I think you said it was Home Goods. I had the man at the glass store, show me how to cut glass or mirror and bought a German glass cutter from him. I still can’t cut glass worth a hoot. I go to thrift stores when they are having sales in the picture department and buy pictures for 1.00 or 2.00 just for the glass which I cut down when I need glass for a vintage frame. It is a lot cheaper than going to the hardware store. Right now, I have four frames that need oval glass….I won’t be cutting it and I don’t think Ace Hardware will cut round. Love the idea of using ribbon for curtain tabs…I never heard of that before, but it is genius. Why didn’t we think of that?

    • I thought I’d just grab one from Michaels, but it’s proving a bit harder than I thought to find one. I’ll be keeping my eye out. You sound like an expert glass cutter to me!

  2. I’m also on a quest to brighten up a dark bookcase (the one pictured here: http://embracemyspace.com/2014/01/03/new-year-new-goals/). I want to pack that bookcase with ALL white frames, vases, animal statues, shells. I think it will make a pretty cool statement and really make the bookcase shine. I’m also going to do a “white out” in the foyer. White walls, white wallpaper beneath the chair rail, etc! Just like everything you touch turns to gold, hehe, everything I touch lately is turning white. Somebody stop me!!

  3. I enjoy reading your DIY ideas. Perfect inspiration. I’m a huge fan of the idea of curtains from sheets. A friend of mine recently completed a similar project except she turned a fabric shower curtain into curtains. Very cool. Just followed you in Pinterest. Great boards.
