DIY PAINTINGS

Trying to find the right artwork for your space can be quite challenging at times, especially when you are working on a budget. For those of you who want to spice up your living space without the added costs, try doing it yourself or perhaps pawning it off to a friend if they are willing. I have been on the hunt for these Anne Siems prints for some time now. I decided if I couldn’t find them, I’d have to make them. I picked up some white frames from Homesense ($14.99 each), and sized watercolour paper I had lying around from some previous art class to fit the frame.  After a long night and a couple glasses of wine…Voila!

Prepping For Easter

Easter-3Easter-2Easter-1

Greek Easter bread (tsoureki) finally done and tastes absolutely delicious!!! I also chose to dye my eggs this year using natural ingredients. A more cost friendly and healthier option for sure. Really loved this idea, and next year I am definitely going to try more colours. Have a look and let me know what you think. Thanks to Loveandcupcakesblog.com helping me out!

I’ve died and gone to palette heaven!   This is one of the most cost effective and eco-friendly way to create furniture.  I’ve been obsessing over palette designs for quite some time now, and I am pretty sure a lot of you are too.  So, I wanted to share with you the greatness I have found scouring the net.   I wish there was a tutorial attached to these beauties, butunfortunately there isn’t.   For all those DIY’ers out there, hope this is a great source of inspiration.    Scroll down for some more great works.
