it's been a-while since the last homie update! once Bijou Market came and went i finally found myself with a little free time to get cracking on the last room on the list since we moved. we won't be in this townhouse for year(s) on end so although the 100% tan walls (and ceilings?!) bewilder me, they don't irritate me enough to do anything about it. the goal was to bring in color with the decor and continue on with our lazy anti-painting selves.
pile of DVDs here, full length mirror there & a vintage dresser where forever 21 jewelry goes to die:
i have lots of pics to share next week of the behind the scenes and some tips i discovered along the way, too. everything was a do-it-myself and here's a couple teasers:
skewer sunburst mirror - what we do without metallic gold spray paint?
Rorsach inspored inkblot print
$12 total for the inkblot $15 for DIY custom frame supplies
shim sunburst mirror
Isleta bedding DIY, taped off ready to paint
$12 for supplies $12 for new shams
all these DIYs cost $86.00 total, while going to the store and buying them off the shelf would have cost me $1200.00+ so ... low-fives all around!
some of these projects came from tutorials and inspiration around the web, and i'll be sure to share with the coordinating posts next week! as for the bedding:
i saw this "Isleta" bedding via Anthropologie a couple weeks go and was instantly smitten.
it's just insanely cool and unlike any bedding i've seen. when i was buying supplies to recreate it for our master bedroom, i had plans of a different color combo and then backed out last minute, the combo they used is perfection and a big reason why i loved it so much, so i just stayed pretty close to it.
