Isn’t it funny how by adding some simple trim to bedding the price suddenly jumps up?! A much cheaper way is to buy your favourite trim and add it to your own sheet sets! You don’t even need to sew it on - just use some fabric glue and add it to your per-exsisting sheets (or a cheap sheet set) to get the look for much, much less!
Faux Antiqued Mirrors (Without Chemicals!) | Home Heart Craft
I found out the other week that Anthropologie ships to Australia… yikes. Now I just need to win the lottery! One of the pieces I fell in love with and was very much considering purchasing was this incredible collected memories mirror. Thank goodness I read the comments! Apparently you don’t actually get the mirror pictured - it’s a but of a lucky dip (though it sounds like most people got all brown frames!). Well now I don’t have to shell out over $400 for it - I can just make my own! all you need is photo frames, vinegar and mirror spray. If you purchase your frames new then do as home Heart Craft did and distress them yourself (then you can add colour too if you want!) or buy some second hand ones that are already a bit knocked about. How exciting!
DIY Tufted Headboard | Little Green Notebook
I love my home made headboard - it’s comfy to lean against when I’m reading, doesn’t let my head hit the wall, etc. But it’s a pretty dodgy version - I made it out of two canvases stapled together, padding over the top and then fabric. The buttons used to make it ‘tufted’ but they’ve all popped out! I’ve been looking to re-make one but I’m terrible with drilling holes. What sets this one apart is that you use peg board, meaning no holes and more precise tufts. I’m thinking of going with yellow to match my new lamps!
photo negative lamps? yes please.
