Hello Lovelies, oh boy I had a really busy weekend;) At first I mounted these planks to the wall, we`ve got from our old container as our family emigrated to Germany. I thought it would be a nice memory for all of us.
Than I was helping my Dad to install the new light fixture, a sort of strip light for the stairs.
Bought a new rug;)
Painted the trim. That always get`s kinda messy...
Started to paint a new piece of art for a client.
And now I`m off to enjoy the evening with some good magazine reads;)
Hello Lovelies, today I wanna show you the second painted driftwood table I did for my living room. I used the same technique like in this post here. But this time I was wearing gloves;) Okay, here we go now...
From this IKEA table, to a beachy beauty;) Here it is after a few coats of paint.
And here I gave em the finishing touch, the last coat of clear acrylic paint.
That`s how it looks completely finished.
Look who`s hiding right under the table;) My cat was sleeping there all the time.
And now, drumroll please;) Here are some staged pix.
After I saw these pretty side tables,dining tables and coffee tables, I decided that I need one too;) And it would fits perfectly in my new airy space!
For this DIY driftwood painted table I`ve got this tones of Milkpaint.
I saw this paint the first time at Miss Mustard Seed. Good for me this paint is available in Germany too. Pretty easy to use and as I think the results are fantastic! I bought along time ago this little side table and coffee table from IKEA.
Nice color, but not "drifted" enough for me;) Here it is after sanding
and after the first coat of the darker paint.
I sandet it during the each coat.
Next to the table you can see the lighter paint. I didn`t use so much water for the darker paint and used it like chalk to get the dark spots on the wood.
As you can see it here.
And that`s how your hands look like if you don`t wear gloves:)
NICE;)) Okay, here we go, that`s how it looks completely dried.
I really like how it turned out! Here some little staged pics;)
Today`s guest post is from Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting Blog, a must-shop resource for beautiful light fixtures. She saw my flamingo painting on this blog post and was inspired to find decor and interiors that played on the subject and palette.
Pudel-Design via Taking the primary colors of yellow, flamingo pink, red, white and gray blue, she pulled images that use some or all of these in a wide range of rooms and styles. Let's see how a painting becomes a room... or even a travel trailer. Enjoy!
House to Home via Love the yellow buffet in a room of red and white stripes. Just like the yellow skirt next to the lifesavers. The matching drum light fixture is a great touch. All this room needs is a flamingo!
Pinterest via This one might be a little bit of a stretch but this wallpaper takes the palette of the painting and turns it into a graphic, vintage inspired wallpaper. I think the flamingo would look fantastic hanging on this wallpaper.
Pinterest via I love the feminine qual…
