How-Tos and Inspiration
During the holidays, my husband and I often go out to friends' houses for dinner and we always bring wine. Instead of buying traditional wine bags, I decided to make my own wine covers to add a personal and festive touch to the hostess gift this year.
All these hats used to sit on a shelf in the front closet of our family cottage. In addition to taking up valuable space I was afraid they might get damaged so I decided to create a hat wall.
Considering the amount of time we spend at our desks, it makes sense to have something pretty and interesting to look at, don't you think? You're lucky if you have a window to gaze out of, but those can be limited in office settings. So, if you're staring at a blank wall all day, how about jazzing it up with art and adding accessories to your work space? We had fun with ours by hanging a trendy black glasses frame, a white canvas and a super large clock - after all you need to know when it's time to log off.
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.
Imagine coming home to your very own private oasis after a long tiring day. It’s something I’ve been dreaming of for many years and I finally did it. I transformed my tiny urban backyard deck into a little piece of paradise without breaking the bank or undergoing any major renovations – and I love it.
First, having a pretty wall color is a must to get attractive results. You don't have to paint an entire room, simply paint a focal point wall in your house. You might be asking yourself, how do I know which one is a focal point? Well, it's easy. Which wall is the first one you see when you walk into a room? That's the one!
Since transforming a desk chair into this funky little stool, we’ve been using it every single day at the office.
Last year, I held a quick poll on Facebook and asked whether or not I should paint my bronze equine bookends, white. Most of you said "NO". Well, that was then and this is now. I ended up painting them knowing they would be much more versatile with a fresh coat of white paint (sorry to disappoint you poll-takers)! What a difference!
I made this heart art for my daughter's bedroom and I like it so much that I wanted to share it with you. You can download it for FREE directly from our website - all you need is a printer.

Two of the questions I get asked the most often are "what can I hang on my walls" and "how can I do it inexpensively?" I'm a true believer that art doesn't have to cost a fortune to look good.
