I gave an old globe a make-over using paper napkins and Mod Podge. This globe has had several different looks, but this one might just be my favorite! It was super easy to do (and inexpensive to boot!)
Do you ever wish there was an official guidebook on how to decorate your home? When is there too much stuff? When is there not enough?
Karen, who goes by The Graphics Fairy on her blog, has it DOWN. I recently had the privilege of spending a few days with her during the #htlucketts event and took advantage of the chance to shoot Karen's home.
Guys, this home is so inspiring. I'd call her style upscale vintage minimalist. She has JUST the right amount of everything, it's productive AND beautiful!
There's more to this tour via the blog link, however here's lots to get you started, loaded with some decor advice.
I only have one question... where's her BAD junk?! :)
I don't know about you, but my kitchen counters can not have any clutter on them or I will go insane. It's not easy to keep the counter clean when there is things laying around. I was
getting sick of my dish soap & hand soap lying around so I wanted to make something to clean it all up. I made this stand using a dollar store tray & a candlestick. I simply spray painted the two pieces & glued them together with super glue. I also added a bowl with white rags inside to cut back on our paper towel. They are super handy & great to bleach and keep clean for some "green cleaning". Check the post for all of the photos and info. Hope you guys love this simple DIY :)
We went to the Spring Market at Luckett's this past weekend. I've written a post with lots of drool worthy pictures (not because of my picture taking ability but because of all the great
stuff there!) SO many wonderful things to see and buy....inside Luckett's store, outside the store, under the tents, around the tents, inside the Design House, at every turn...drool worthy goodness. What a super fun time. And I got to meet some fabulous people on top of that! Plus I got a little something I'm super excited about on the way home for my kitchen redo! #HTLucketts
I created this flower wall collage for my daughter's room by making tissue paper flowers and fan flowers with scrapbook paper and simply adhering them to the wall. This idea adds color and whimsy to any space! :)
I love finding new ways to use old stuff - even in my table settings! This idea is a 'Fast, Cheap & Easy' TM way to add some FUN to your summer tablescapes...
Use flat game boards as placemats!
This idea was inspired by a display I created in a my booth at a vintage show, and then replicated in a vintage store booth. This one wasn't even planned ahead of time ... when I sat items aside while I was working on the booth setup, I looked down and saw the Scrabble board under the plates and went 'DUH!' :)
It's pretty easy to find Scrabble boards (perfect for summer, because they are red, white, blue, and tan colors)and other old game boards at thrift stores - usually, the pieces are missing from games but the boards are still in the box. If you DO find one with pieces, you can spell out your guests' names! You can also use my Giant Letter Tile tutorial on the HOMEWARDfound blog to make 'Scrabble' tile coasters!
