After a trip to New York, I came back with the idea to add some Jackson Pollock to my own house. I had a few khaki pillows from Target that seemed like the perfect place to add that
element. We removed the stuffing and splattered our pillows with white, black, gray and blue in the driveway. These are all the colors from August Rhythm. After they dried, we re-inserted the stuffing.
I have been wanting to make a little book nook for my daughter's room before she was even born. I had this idea of making signs that had my favorite places from books. I am not a very
good painter when it comes to little details like letters. However, I read about several ways to transfer fonts onto wood and thought I would give it a try. I think they turned out pretty close to the actual fonts and it was super easy and fun. I can also be the first to tell you if I can do it anybody can do it. :)
I am in the middle of transforming my master bedroom and just finished stenciling the walls and creating a Board and Batten Wainscoting. To see how I did it please visit my blog post http://www.lisascreativedesigns.com/lisascot...
Sometimes all it takes is a little paint to entirely change the mood and feel of a room. What do you do when you hear that voice inside your head that says "go ahead and paint that wood...you know you want to!"
I found the perfect candidate for the two-tone finish that I'm in love with. I'm talking about mixing white and a beautiful wood finish in the same project. The vintage dresser I found
for the project is solid oak. I painted the casing white and used hemp oil to revive the beautiful oak finish of the drawers. The cost below includes the cost of the dresser and all products used in the makeover. You can see the complete makeover by clicking the post link below.
