Hey there – if you’re wondering why I’ve dropped off the internet, I haven’t, I’m just at a different address! If you like DIY, Esq., please come check me out at http://FuzzyCloudDesigns.wordpress.com for more DIY projects and inspiration =)
I thought it’d be fun to play with the expected frame placement and I like it! It’s a little kooky but keeps it light and whimsical. And it’s all stuck up with tape so I can fiddle with it if I get bored.
Work has been so insanely busy lately that when I had a free moment for some DIY, I wanted maximum impact with minimal effort. Solution? Put pretty paper on all the things!
Not too shabby for one sheet of double-sided paper, if I do say so myself. An unintended bonus is that using the same lemony pattern in multiple places ties to some of the other yellows already in the room and makes things look a smidge more cohesive (it was starting to look a little chaotic in here – even for me!) =)
I have an embarrassing number of pairs of Ann Taylor perfect pumps and I tend to hoard the boxes – they’re nice and sturdy and a classic black. And I knew they would come in handy some day!
Does the trick!
I’ve been itching to make some wire jewelry for awhile, so I finally got around to buying some 20 gauge bead-stringing wire and some jewelry pliers and got to experimentin’
It takes a little practice to learn how to bend the wire in graceful curves instead of ugly kinks. These rings were supposed to be bows (per this tutorial), but they turned out a little wonky:
I tried some bracelets next and definitely got better with practice:
This little guy I made for fun, but I think he’s my favorite so far:
One day, a nice partner at our office brought in this gigantic gift basket to share, filled to the brim with cookies, cheeses, crackers, chocolates, chocolate-covered cookies, cheese-covered crackers, you name it. The partner was just going to trash the big, sturdy basket all of this came in. So I took it (my coworkers were highly amused that I was dragging this used basket home like a homeless person) and gave it a little makeover.
I just brushed on some diluted Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and used the inside of a Piperlime box as a liner
TADA! Free makes it look pretty good =)
I needed a little stool for my makeup table and once I saw this DIY at Preciously Me, I knew I had to copy it. But you know me, I took this easy project and made it even
Use a plain ol’ needle and thread and some knots to secure the circular pad and sheepskin to the top of the stool (I figured I only needed minimal securing since I wasn’t planing to dance around on top of the thing)
Do you like my ghetto spray-painting set up? What’s that doormat-looking thing underneath, you say? That’s a doormat – because this is my front landing, the only outdoor space I have available in my tiny apartment complex. My neighbor’s door is literally one step to the right of this picture. My poor neighbor…
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”….
