Every time I look through the Purl Bee website I wish again that I could knit! I freakin’ love both of these blankets, but especially the multicoloured striped blanket. Doesn’t it look so warm and comfortable? Perfect for wrapping up in during those cold nights in front of the TV or when reading a book. Oh man. SOMEONE KNIT THIS FOR MEEEE!
Just completed all the paintings for my stand at @pulse_london (Launchpad D16). No matter how hard I plan, I always end up doing these in a last-minute panic rush just before the show 😪😅😵! I have a tutorial showing how to paint macarons on my Youtube channel so check that out if you want to have a try yourself! It’s really fun and they look great as decoration for any room. #macaron #DIY #painting #howtopaint #acrylics #roomdecor #tumblr #macarons #art #illustration #canvas #roominspiration #interiordesign #jewelry #jewellery #armcandy #fashionillustration #howtodraw #arttutorial #youtuber #maqaroon #speedpaint #homeDIY by maqaroon http://ift.tt/1zmNNu0
While y'all are sweating it up there in the Northern hemisphere, it’s freezing down here! But I love it, bring me rain any day! There’s nothing better than lying in bed, reading a book. I usually have a hot water bottle, but lately I’ve been burning my hands filling them up, so I think popping something like this heat pack in my bed before I get in is the way to go. Of course, you can also use these for aches, pains, etc. Just make sure you put a glass of water in the microwave with your heatpack when you heat it up so you don’t burn the rice.
There’s something nice about vintage suitcases that I can’t quite put my finger on. Maybe it’s that they feel like they have a bit of history about them. They’re not really practical these days for air travel, but they are usually so sturdily built that it’s a shame to leave them laving in the op shops. This is such a cool use for them - very Mad Men, 60’s, inherited-ish! If you have a retro vibe in your house these would slot in perfectly. And they don’t have to go in the bedroom- these would be perfect for holding your fabrics, craft supplies, in the bathroom to hold towels and other bits and pieces… all you need to do is find enough cases in the same size!
I love the combination of embroidery and fabric paint on these pillowcases! Because the design is just on the edges of the cases it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the patterns on the bed. If you wanted you could make these in colours to suit the linens you already have, or if you’re looking for a challenge you could use these as a jumping off point to making your own bed set!
Hammocks? Uh, so hard to get into (and harder to get out of!). Swinging chairs? Not the easiest thing to lay on. Day bed? But it doesn’t swing! Pallet swing bed? Best of all worlds! It looks so comfortable too. This is more than a one day project, and you need something sturdy to hang it from, but I’m sure the idea of spending your Summers laying on this, reading a good book, drinking an iced tea and napping will keep you motivated! I’m going to show this project to my dad and try to convince him to make one for me…
Don’t let your amazing Instagram pics sit on your phone, bring them to life with these three amazing projects! I have to say I’m in love with that little Polaroid necklace (interchangeable pics, so cute!)
Searching through the West Elm website, I found a set of gorgeous agate coasters… though I would never allow anyone to put their cups on them, they’re too nice! They do make an amazing piece of art aren’t they?! There’s something so earthy and rich about agate that feels like jewels. Have a search on etsy or amazon for pieces of agate to frame - they come in a myriad of colours.
There’s something cosy and comforting about a hammock. But a lot of us don’t have the space for them - which makes one inside the perfect solution! It’s the perfect place to sit and read a book or just chill out and watch the world go by. Just make sure you know how to hang it (or get someone who does to hang it for you)
I know I have a lot of renter-readers, so I knew y'all would love it! I know some of you get bummed by the fact that you can’t paint or wallpaper your place, but there are a ton of great ideas on how to bring colour and fun into your digs. I think that some bright yellow chairs are in my future…
A Beautiful Mess is like the place to go for amazing statement walls! This time it’s in the form of a phrase, repeated over and over - and if I’ve learnt anything from watching every season of Design Star, it’s that when you repeat something over and over it has a big impact. But as you can see, it’s best to keep everything else relatively neutral so your room doesn’t get too busy. You could also paint your wall in one colour and then do your writing in a shade lighter or darker. A big impact that’s incredibly original!
Spray paint has a bad rep. Back in the day it was oily, toxic and only available in colours like black, brown, red and browny red. But as you can see, spray paint has changed with the times and comes in a myriad of colours, types and textures. Curbly has rounded up a fantastic set of projects using this overlooked product, in lots of different ways. Personally I adore those gold letters (formerly plastic blue, yellow & red!) and the gold/pink book ends. Click through for all the links!
So I’ve gone back through my archive and picked out my most favourite DIYs that I blogged this year. I still haven’t done any of them, but now I’m all excited about them again after ‘rediscovering’ them. I think I need to make that terrarium with the little man though.
