Today I have an interior styling DIY rather than jewellery. As you may know from previous posts we bought a house last year. All the major work is done but we are running low on money for the really fun bit - the accessories and the styling.
Having been a buyer of interior products before I had my son, I do love to trawl around online trying to source exactly what I am looking for but I don't have that kind of time on my hands anymore, or the money to spend on what I really like. So the solution is to make a few things that I can't find or can't afford! It actually takes less time than trying to find what I'm looking for online anyway!
This one is really easy. I found an empty tub - this was a bouillon stock tub but a short Pringles tub would do the same job. I had some gesso from doing papier mache in the past so I used that to create my white base - regular white paint would do the same job. I liked the gold rim on the original packaging so I kept that exposed. Then once my final coat was dry I decorated with washi tape - my favourite decorating material!
Really easy and really cheap, a great new addition to my workspace.
Then I had my first attempt at interiors styling so I could take a photo of it for you. Not bad for my first attempt but room for improvement I think!
Have you got any simple DIY's for the home, I'm all ears as I need a lot of ideas to brighten our house up and make it more of a home!
