Gewei02

am very proud to present my newest DIY idea. I have to say, I love it! It’s very easy to make and gives my living room a very stylish effect. It’s a bit of a problem that I live together with my beloved boyfriend and as you might expect, he hates it. But, as always, I really wish to believe he just have to get used to it so I’ll give it a few days (weeks).
I bought this little treasure at a flea-market in the Jordaan in Amsterdam. There not very rare so it must be doable to find yourself one in a secondhand shop.
I sprayed the whole thing white and gave it a little pink neon touch. Of course you can try every color. When my boyfriend still hates it in a few days (weeks), I think I’ll try a more neutral color, see if that will work. :-)
Have fun!

As you might have noticed, I love to create the most simple things in something that I can use to decorate my home. This one is very ease to do and the result is actually surprisingly nice! Take a few clothespins (if you want to you even can paint them a nice color) and attach them to the wall with double-sided tape. Easy as that!

Towel Holder

 

I’ve been crafting this week with the result of a towel-holder. Might nog be the thing you really need the most but it definitely looks nice. I can imagine that you are wondering what in the world you could do with a towel-holder but you will be surprised. For example, it’s nice for the bathroom but also in the guest room, bathroom, tea towels, you name it! I remade a clothes hanger and bent it in a new shape, that’s all actually. You should try it!

Coat Hanger Kitchen Memo

Coat Hanger Kitchen memo

This home made kitchen-memo is very nice and easy to make as well! For every new week, you can just rip the old week off and start all over! For outside the kitchen, you can use it as a mood board or to write a cute memo on it.

To make it, you have to cut the coat-hanger in the middle lower part (make sure you take a firm coat-hanger, otherwise it won’t last very long).  I bought this paper roll at Ikea. Put both sides of the coat-hanger in to the cylinder and your done! Easy as hell!

DIY Light Bucket

DIY Light Bucket

can tell you, this lamp will give a lot of reactions when people are coming over for diner. After a while, I’m used to it but I have to admit that it can be a little distracting when a bucket comes out of thee ceiling. But it definitely will give your interior a industrial look and it’s a very good budget design!

At first you will need a old bucket which you can buy at a flea market, a flex, tie wraps, a bayonet cap and of course a light bulb.

Ok, here it comes:
Drill a small hole in the bottom of the bucket where the flex can fit trough. Attach the bayonet cap on one side of the flex and put the tie wrap tight on approximately 1/4 of the cord from the bayonet cap. Thread the cord trough the hole  of the bottom of the bucket until it can’t get any further because of the tie wrap. The only thing left is to attach it on to the ceiling and your done!

Just a little side-note: makes sure it is high enough or above a table or something. I made the mistake once and a lot of tall guys went home with a sore forehead.

DIY Napkins

I have to say that I really love to invite people at my house to have dinner. Of course I’m totally stressed before they come because even if I promise to myself that I’m just going to keep it very simple, It never works. There is something in me that always has the urge to impress the guest a little. So I made these napkins like half an hour before the guest would arrive. My boyfriend was asking me if I became mental (“why in de hell would you sew napkins when you can buy them in the store?”), guess that’s a guy thing.
Anyway, they had the effect that I was hoping for! So definitely try it! I bought these simple white napkins at the Ikea and of course you can sow anything what you want as a decoration!

DIY Wooden Spoons

 

Very easy and very lovely! Spring is in the air and it is time to decorate my home like that!
Anyway, these wooden kitchen spoons are very easy to give a touch of the spring. I just put a small piece of tape on it so the paint will not get all over the spoon and you get a nice straight line!
