Patterned tile floors are super trendy and also super pricey. Don't toss your tiled dreams aside before reading this painted floor tutorial! This project is an easy and affordable way to give your flooring a stylish look.We'd like to introduce Erika, a creative DIYer from Cutting Edge Stencils. Erika had builder beige tiles. She longed for a pretty patterned floor similar to the ones she had seen in her Instagram feed. Since her budget was tight, Erika decided to paint and stencil her builder beige tiles.
As much as I love painting furniture in bright colors, I know yellow is not for everyone. This is why I love when my customers go bold like this couple did. They were half way into the pregnancy but decided to find out their baby's gender only after birth. The nursery had to be ready though, so they decided the dresser/changing table should colorful and festive.
This is how this pine dresser looked before.
I had this antique lingerie chest for a few months and when i first saw it, i fell in love! The dainty legs, many drawers and the detailed konbs made this piece move to the top of my project list! I really wanted this one to be unique. I decided to do a design on the drawer fronts and keep it very feminine.

Make it look old with Shabby Paints
Got Stress? Need a distraction? Well, this is my stress reliever. Give me the task of making something look weathered and old and I can get lost in it. I love to take something new..or something not old enough and make it look really old, distressed, fractured and worn…like me :)
There is no specific way to do this, just make it your own and have fun. Layering sells the look. In a Nutshell: Paint, fracture, paint, fracture, paint, sand, reVAX, sand, love....
Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
Grab a run down vintage dresser and give it a whole new lease on life with some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and some IOD Grainery Decor Stamps.
Rather than toss your old furniture to the curb, we want you to consider giving it a stenciled makeover. What sounds like an advanced project is actually so easy that even a beginner can do it. Today we're sharing a stencil tutorial showing how easy it is to makeover old nesting tables using our Passion Mandala Stencil. Let's take a look...
Hello again from sunny Malaysia :) Just wanna say a big thank you to all who have visited and liked and commented on my 2 previous projects!! :)This is to be my 3rd makeover of the year! And this time, I have chosen to do an outdoor space. Living on the 8th floor, our only outdoor space within the apartment would be the balcony. We have a relatively small balcony, probably about 12 feet x 5 feet give and take. It's a space that I seldom use because there was nothing there. Well we had a table and some plants but that was it ... a neglected space (for me at least). The husband likes to use it in the night when it's cooler outside. It is his go to space to write. It's a really lovely space if I think about it, because we get to watch the most beautiful sunsets during the evenings from this balcony. Don't know why I didn't give it more attention earlier. Anyways, it's time to do it up and give the family a hangout space, watch the sunset and give my husband a nice little nook to write surrounded by beauty instead of dying plants ((O_O))SO here is the Before and After photo of our balcony, and after that I will give you a brief description on the whole makeover process and what projects I did to enhance this outdoor space.*you can see the full process in the video link at the end of this article.
How to paint furniture with Velvet Finishes!
I get a lot of emails from people who are new to painting furniture. It's so cool that they are interested in trying out Velvet Finishes!
But many of them are scared....
There's nothing that makes our little heart's sing more than the exquisite depth of beauty that is emulated in authentic vintage Blue Delft tiles. Of course we don't have the budget to acquire such antiquities, so as usual we set our minds to figuring out a way to hack it. Our wheels are always turning when we find something we love that's just not in our budget. One might say the challenge of DIY'ing these high end design features is what we live for, second only to encouraging and empowering others to do the same!
Well, that's the way it started... In the last year we renovated our house and there are too many things that are still waiting in our backyard to be reused (good luck with that.. ).
