I designed a fun printable for you today. I hope it motivates you like it does me (sometimes I need an extra little push to keep on trucking).
It even ties into the DIY project that I’m going to show you too…bonus!
Now onto the DIY…
Last weekend I went on an unplanned and very quick little DIY project frenzy, and it was kinda awesome.
Ted and I both decided to clean the guest rooms to prepare for our family, who will be visiting for Thanksgiving.
One guest room (also doubling as his “man room”) had been a little ignored lately. He got the room back to working order and the sheets washed.
I did the same with the other guest room (which used to double as my craft storage room, but now is mostly just ignored – I mean look at this atrocious closet), haha. Yeah…
I already regret showing this pic, but just being real. Anyone want to buy a nice Konica Minolta color duplex printer? 🙂
We’ve put off updating these two rooms of our house because we haven’t had the time. They don’t need much…painted trim in both, fresh paint and a new light fixture “my guest room,” (which I already have….see one of my early blog posts here, teehee).
The two guest rooms share a jack and jill bathroom, which also needs a DIY facelift.
Aaaanyway….as I was cleaning I was also doing lots of random projects left and right (Vivi was a great helper).
Made and hung a no sew (modern) curtain valance using some extra fabric
Spray painted a lamp base
Spray painted a stool/side table
Styled book shelves
Hung some printables on the walls
Moved and rearranged furniture
Made an easy framed bulletin board/wall art
…And finally that leads me to showing you this super easy DIY bulletin board project.
I found a large frame and cardboard backer in my basement.
And spray painted it gold.
I took some extra fabric that I had left over from Vivi’s DIY teepee project, and used it to easily wrap the cardboard backer like a present. I wrapped the cardboard with the fabric, and super crazily taped it on the back. I mean, wow. I’m sorta embarrassed to show you the back, ha.
I didn’t want to cut the fabric incase I wanted to use it on something else down the road. In my past life I was a great depression baby or something. 🙂
I like to get shit done quickly, and if it doesn’t show, it is most likely ghett-ooo. 🙂
Here’s the pretty side.
It could work as wall art by itself.
If you want to use it as a bulletin board, the cardboard backer makes the perfect tack cushion.
I’ll show you more of this guest room when it’s a little more styled and put together, m’kay?!
