Okay, so I’ve this Ikea chair forever. It was one of those things you have in your house but you also still forget you even own because it’s literally just there, you know? Since we had a ton of leftover fabric paint from the DIY workshop, so I figured what the heck, I’ll paint it! At least if this DIY painted chair makeover extravaganza went really south I wouldn’t miss the chair, ha!

I think I like how it turned out though! What do you all think? Don’t get me wrong, I know the pattern is a little crazy, but would you ever paint a pattern on one of your old chairs? The good thing about the particular is that it’s doesn’t get super scratchy if you apply it lightly, here’s how I made mine…

I swear someone might actually think I have a green thumb with all of the plant stand DIY’s I’ve been pulling out of my sleeve here lately. It’s cool though, I’m totally happy with being a poser if it means I get to keep this cute DIY acacia wood plant stand around, I just love it!

Even better, it’s actually an Ikea hack, but I didn’t want to get too crazy on you guys all at once. I mean, I know you only need half a reason to run laps around something with it being Friday and all, but just promise that if you do happen to run by an Ikea on your weekend excitement high that you’ll buy up one of these guys to DIY sometime over the next few days…

If I’m known for something when all of this DIY madness comes to an end someday, I hope it’s as the girl who used weird objects for completely opposite purposes than what they’re actually made for… that sounds fun. It’s definitely not going to be for my shining use of original one-liners considering all I could come up with for this DIY patterned matches vanity tray was “light your morning routine on fire”, which seemed a bit too tragic.

Lucky for you I’m elaborating even further on this matches discussion over on Designlovefest, where you can see the full scoop on how to make your own! Best of luck!

DIY Faux Brass Drawer Fronts

I seriously want to gold foil ALL THE THINGS. It’s a problem. I hope I don’t look back at these years and have the same feelings as I do when I look at old middle school photos of myself with my over-plucked eyebrows and massive braces (you know, the kind of feeling when you wonder why no one stepped in to save you from yourself). In this instance it may be too late, because now I’ve gone and created DIY faux brass drawer fronts on all of our desk drawers.

I can’t help it, especially since I discovered this new metallic gold foil that’s only feeding my habit because a) it’s only $10, and B) because you now get a giant roll of it that’s actually big enough to cover lots of things (which previously did not exist in my world). I hope you guys have prepared yourselves for gold madness around here…
