Painted Plates Garden Art

painted_plate_garden_art

I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard this Spring. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up.  You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art.  Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.

5 Ways to Get This Look: Spring Living Room

5-ways-to-get-spring-living-room

I spotted this lovely living room at House of Turquoise, and it just seemed to embody the fresh, airy feeling of Spring.  The living room that caught my eye looks so light and cool with it’s combination of washed out sun yellow and sky blue.  I definitely love the custom woodwork (that window seat!) and the eclectic blend of furnishings.  I’m happy to say that if you want a room like this, you can have it!  I’ve collected tutorials for projects that can help you copy some of the fun design elements of this room and put them in your own house.  Enjoy!

DIY Pallet Valentine Art

I am not a huge seasonal decorator.  Are you?  I don’t have a lots of tchotchkes and other décor to just change it up every season.  I am pretty simplistic in my approach to decorating.  I usually decorate maybe one entryway table seasonally and maybe add in a few new pillows since I love making them. I decided to create a large DIY “LOVE” art for Valentine’s day.  However, I used untraditional Valentine’s day colors so I can display it year round.  It looks like a mini pallet.
