Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday! For The Home

Hi all!

Well it is Wednesday again, time for “Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday!” with Michelle over at The Vintage Apple.  I love Wednesdays, not only because of the link up but because it means the week is almost over!  It’s been a busy day so sorry that this post is so late.  But better late than never, right?  I know I’ve done this theme before, but this week I’m pinning lovely spaces that I want to incorporate into my future home.  Pinterest is a great place to generate some awesome decorating idea, so time to get to those pins.

For the Home

Awesome Outdoor Lounge

Lovely Pillows

Lowered Den…Possibly

Great Reading Room

Hope you enjoyed the pins this week.  If you have Pinterest why not head over and join up with The Vintage Apple.  If not leave me your email, and let me know you’d like an invite.  You can find these pins and all of my boards here.

Until next time…

DIY Home Decor: Paper Towel Edition

Hi All!

Woo hoo!  The weekend is almost here, and I know many of you may be excited about that.  Some of you may use the weekend to relax, but others use that time to do projects around the house.  The other day I had a light bulb go off in my head while changing out the paper towel roll.  I know, “a paper towel roll, really?”  Well it happened, and now I’m glad it did.  I hear about school teachers using the cardboard rolls for class craft projects often.  So I thought why not make a more adult project, and the best thing about it is…it’s pretty CHEAP!  So today I’ll be showing you how I made a simple L-O-V-E home decor sign , and hopefully give you inspiration for some future decor ideas.

What you’ll need
1 Cardboard Paper Towel Roll (cut into 4 pieces)
Scissors
Tape
Pencil
Hole Puncher
White or Colored Paper
Spray Paint (your choice of color), only needed if you wish to paint them
Rubber Gloves (if you are painting the cardboard)
Step 1
You are going to want to make sure that you can get your hole punch to reach the middle of each cardboard cylinder.  Trim each of the four pieces down a little more if you need too.  With the pencil lightly draw each letter out.  For each piece you can make as many or as little punches as you like, but you can see how mine turned out below.
L- Four vertical punches, and two horizontal.
O- Six punches
V- Seven punches
E- 9 punches; the E was tricky because I realized that I could not reach the center to make the E look right.  I had to score it, and stick a screw driver in it instead.  So make sure you space the holes out before punching this one.
Step 2
Put your gloves on and start spraying!  Let them dry completely before moving on to the next step.
If you choose not to paint them, skip to Step 3.

Step 3
Cut strips of paper to fit inside each cylinder.
Secure them by taping them inside

Step 4
Place them anywhere you like and enjoy!
Some recommendations for this project would be to have the paper inside be a contrasting color.  So if you are going to keep it the plain cardboard, then have a bright color behind it.  If you decide to spray them, I’d suggest you wear gloves and keep a finger on them while you spray.  They move easily when you spray, and you don’t want them to move around.
That is all for today!  Let me know if you like it, I love comments!
Until next time…

Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday! Spaces

Hi Ya’ll!

It’s time for “Oh, How Pinteresting” again.  It is only my second week, but I know I am going to love this!  Pinterest has helped me find so many creative ideas, and this week I thought I’d make it all about Awesome Spaces.  Once the hubby and I move into the house we’re going to build our family in, I know that I’m going to want to decorate and remodel to make it our perfect little space.  Or should I say big space, since we hope to have a few children.  That is, if we don’t go completely crazy after the first one!  So I’ll be sharing some spaces that have given me some big inspiration.
