Time: 25 minutes Materials: pumpkins, knife, paint, small container
All this week, myself and other contributors have been sharing pumpkin diys over on Curbly. I’m not a huge fan of halloween projects, so for mine, I decided to combine my two favorite things: flowers and metallics! See the full tutorial here and don’t forget to check out the others!
Time: 30 minutes Materials: frame, Montana spray paint, Montana acrylic paint maker, drop cloth, paper, tape I’ve had the same print and frame for about three years now. In between all of our moves it’s gotten a little beaten up (hey, the frame was only $4 at Target, I can’t complain). Instead of ditching it for a new one, I decided to give it a quick makeover! (print by Scout’s Honor Paper)Earlier this week I showed you a project with Montana acrylic paint makers and another with their spray paint. Today I’m going to combine the two, because hey, why not! You can find matching marker and spray paint sets in 36 colors AND you can enter to win some for yourself (see below). Now, on to the tutorial:Start by painting your frame white. Once dry, tape off the corners and paint with your secondary color. Make sure your paint is completely dry, otherwise the paint will peel up with the tape. It’s also a good idea to cover the other half (thick paper works), so you don’t see any speckling. Once you frame is dry, create you pattern with your matching Montana paint marker. The 2mm tips are great for creating the perfect small polka dot. Don’t forget– if you entered already, you can still earn more entries today! Giveaway open to US and Canada residents. Ends Friday at 5:00pm PST. Good luck!
Until recently, I didn’t know it was even possible to love how art is displayed as much as the art itself. But it totally is. Each one of these photo display projects prove that you don’t need a huge budget to display your photographs/art prints, just a bit of creativity! So go ahead, let loose and choose the option that’s a bit outside the box frame. Your walls will thank you for it.
Since moving into our new place, I’ve been looking at a lot of home makeover projects. And I mean a lot. Sometime during my browsing it hit me– there are endless ways to paint a wall. Sure, it sounds silly, but I’ve always approached decorating in terms of what color am I going to use verse, how am I going to apply the paint. I’ve got a pretty fun office makeover coming soon where I’m going to put what I learned to the test, but for now, here are five non-traditional ways to help you think outside the box when it comes to painting a room!
