Though it’s not listed on my About page, one of my major pastimes is browsing Wayfair, adding pretty things to my cart and then never buying them. I’ve come across these beautiful dipped baskets many times on the site and I love how they look:
If you’re someone who sews, let me say right off the bat, KUDOS. My experience with sewing is limited to ninth grade Home Ec class. Picture me: braces, velour t-shirt, and eager to shine in the eyes of my teacher. Sitting awkwardly in front of a hot, humming sewing machine, raising my hand for the umpteenth time because my needle got snagged up again. Now picture Mrs Webber looking exasperated because she already showed me how to fix it…umpteen times. Needless to say, I’ve never fancied myself a seamstress. When I came across From Faye‘s tutorial for no-sew bunting, I was excited to try it for myself.
I’ve passed by these wooden houses in Dollarama’s craft section for ages. Recently, my Pinterest and YouTube have been flooded with ideas for minimalist-inspired decor. Although minimalism isn’t really my style, pins like this one show how adorably whimsical those little wooden houses can look in a kid’s room. It inspired me to get crafting! I’m in LOVE with how the final product turned out. If you’re into quick, easy and cheap DIYs, this one’s for you!
January is an awesome time to thrift shop because people are getting rid of all the old crap they don’t want after Christmas. I will gladly sift through all of the old crap and find my own treasures. Everything I picked up this month came to under $30.
When I first moved out of my parents’ house, I inherited a bunch of household items, many of which I’m still using today. Among those items was this lamp:
Although it served me well for years, it’s safe to say it’s out of style at this point. That being said, it still functions perfectly, so, rather than get rid of it, I’m giving it a facelift! You might be surprised at how easy and inexpensive it is to DIY a fresh, new lampshade cover.
