Got home from work at 9:00pm and decided I had energy for one, very lazy project.
So I dressed up a little Malm side table with some paper and washi tape. I couldn’t be bothered to get out a plate and brush to put on a proper application of mod podge, so I just used a glue stick. A glue stick! For crying out loud, I should just re-name this blog “theLazyDIYer”….
But I guess you get what you pay for (in time and effort) ’cause I’m not sure I like the final result. It manages to be matchy-matchy and chaotic at the same time – maybe I just need a different paper pattern…
I recently acquired an awesome original comic book drawing of catwoman and wanted to hang it up above my makeup/jewelry table. So I popped it into a floating frame I had lying around, but the shiny silver wasn’t really tying in. Washi tape to the rescue!
And soon, the slowly-evolving corner of my bedroom went from this:
It’s a little hard to tell in these photos, but trust me, the floating frame ties in so much better now that it has a gold-striped finish.
To keep it harmonious, I used the same gold-striped washi tape to put up some cards and sketches I had lying around. Along with some postcards of El Bosco’s “Garden of Earthly Delights”, which I saw in the Prado museum in Madrid and which may just be my favorite painting in the entire world (for now).
The beauty of using washi tape is that it’s removable so if I ever get tired of this particular melange, I can always switch it out for whatever’s tickling my fancy at the moment.
