here we are again, recap of 2013!
I think this year is gone amazingly fast! Don`t you?
So what have I accomplished this year?
I was quite a bit.
Many DIY posts, many art of course, and some projects I haven`t finished yet
and promised to blog about them when they are done.
Like my finished kitchen, my new reading nook, my revamped living room,
my finally finished studio space!
I think, I will share these projects in 2014 with you!;)
So on to the posts of 2013!
Just click the post name, to get to the post!
Now on to my personal fave`s this year! January A DIY house-warming gift! DIY fake driftwood panel star!
I don`t know if you saw this sign at Pottery Barn.
But I fell in love I saw it the first time!
An I don`t know either if anyone already did this on their own.
But I thought I`ll give it a shot!
And it`s totally about time for a DIY vs. ... knock off;)
So the sign, Pottery Barn is selling looks like this;
11" wide x 54,5" high x 1" thick
Made of mahogany wood.
Distressed hand-painted finish.
Mounting hardware included.
And of course it`s sold out!
See?! I think it was about 129 bucks or something.
Too expensive for me.
This is what I used to made my sign:
a plain canvas.
Slight beige and red paint.
Tape, pencil. ;)
Not much huh?
And it was pretty easy, only 1 hour to made it,
including the time it dried.
So draw your letters on the primed canvas,
I painted it with my slight beige paint first.
(If you are not this good at sketching,
just print out the letters in desired size and simply copy them on the canvas)
And than start with your red paint,
Hello Lovelies, I think yesterday was the perfect
25th of December!
We were visiting my hubby`s Family
in a cute little town, with some pretty nice old houses.
Had delicious food.
A nice walk through the woods and funny present unwrapping;)
I got a new camera lens,
an needed to try it immediately.
So here`s the cake,
the best chocolate cake, with some glacéed figs.
