Have you ever acquired a piece of furniture that you didn't know what to do with, but you just couldn't say goodbye to? That's the story with this desk... we've had it since the early days of starting our company, Under The Roof Decorating. Although it's all scratched up, and damaged, we've never wanted to part with it because it's part of our story. So, we decided to give it a makeover, and we're so glad we did because we've fallen in love with it all over again.
Since transforming a desk chair into this funky little stool, we’ve been using it every single day at the office.
So here's the thing - I'm terrible at math, yet I love numbers! I especially love giant block numbers like these. Believe it or not, I made this modern looking art with pages ripped from my favourite Stendig calendar. This calendar is so beautiful (a piece of art in itself!) that I couldn't bring myself to throw out the "expired" months. So I thought I could recycle it by framing parts of it. That's how the idea for this gallery wall came to be, and I absolutely love the results. I re-used frames that I already had, and most importantly it's one of kind art.
We found some great picture frames at a garage sale along with some monogram letters and needed to paint them all white for a decorating project we're working on. We found out that it is actually possible to get through spray painting without mess.
I love making my own art and I love it even more when I can do it without spending much money. Artwork is the easiest way to update your decor.
If this canvas could talk, it would tell you that it’s been painted over and over again quite a few times. It’s all about up-cycling.
Here’s a great holiday decorating idea that not only looks stylish, but can be pulled together in a matter of minutes. Simply frame a holiday card and hang it up or display it on a sofa table or a dresser to create a festive vignette.
I was looking for art that looked festive without being overly Christmassy, but since I couldn't find what I was looking for, I made my own using gift wrapping paper. Here's what I did and what I learned so you can easily recreate the look too.
