Diy spray paint or dye furniture đź’śđź’™đź”¨

I need to see if rit makes a color to dye a section of my sofa that has faded due to the sun. I love keeping my curtains open but with that comes a price to pay my sofa lost the red color and is white. So looking on Pinterest I found some cheap ways to extend the life of my sofa.
Here is a pick of the side facing my patio doors.

So here are a few pics that I got from Pinterest and the rit website of others that have used the dye since my sofa isn’t a slip cover I have to dab it and since we won’t be sitting on that side I painted it shouldn’t have to be rinsed off but we will see how it goes. I stopped at joann fabrics and picked up two colors I thought would match going to wait to get my husbands thoughts on which will match the best.

You can’t tell by the pics which one will match the best but cherry red is a little darker color so need more peoples input but if no one will be able to see it really I guess it won’t matter much since it is still by the window.

Diy outdoor furniture đź”¨

I wish I had a bigger deck and could build one of these cool benches. I found these on Pinterest. Not sure which websites they came from to give credit to the website or photographer.
These are such cute additions to any deck and easy to do according to the blogs.

Distressed Dresser DIY

Dresser Makeover

The Hippie Haus Wife

I have always had a fondness for all things vintage (or antique, rustic, old, dated, etc). But I never really got into the whole “distressed” thing as I thought it always looked, well, crappy. I mean, who would pay good money for something that looks like it was dumped on the side of the road and left to rot (ok, maybe not that bad, but still)? Well, apparently there are a lot of people out there who would in fact pay a lot of money for these kinds of things.

By way of the internet and Pinterest, (yes, in my mind there is a difference in the internet and Pinterest- and anyone who is a hardcore “pinner” will know exactly what I mean), I had started to see a lot of distressing projects pop up, and with modern advances in crafting mediums, some of them were actually looking pretty cool…

Decoupage To The Rescue! Lost Basement Table Gets A Makeover

Basement Table Makeover

On The Upcycle~

Last stop before curbside in our house has always been the basement.  This poor glass table had been banished to the basement for seven years, the entire time we have lived in our house!  It was pushed in a corner and with flower pots and miscellaneous basement junk stacked on top of it and covered in spider webs. My husband and I try to keep the basement clean, and clutter free, but it is not always easy.  As much as we dislike our basement’s dampness, cement walls and floors, the spiders seem to love it! That’s good because they help control the other bugs crawling around down there! yuck!  If any item deserved a little TLC, and a makeover it was this table! I cleaned it in our utility sink and brought it upstairs.  The glass was easily removable, and the table cleaned up nicely.

Knife-block redo and barstool upcycle

Upcycled knife block and More

Crafty Madre

ImageImage

My wife suggested I paint our knife-block but I hesitated for a bit because it came with a expensive knife set from SharpenedKnife that my parents gave me. But you can’t win if you don’t play, right?  And she found this cool example and sent me the Pin, so I couldn’t resist.

And the first picture is an awesome bar stool turned (literally) into wrapping paper storage. We got the idea from Pinterest (where else?) and then the wife happened across a somewhat broken stool at a huge tag sale to benefit a local animal shelter. I promised to make the stool into a wrapping paper caddy if she promised not to bring home another dog. Here’s the inspiration for the stool:

I tried out Crackle for the first time on both of these.  It was actually kind of a ruse for the wife’s benefit. She’s much more…

Ikea Furniture-painting

 Put the brush down and step away from the paint.

I’m in the midst of transitioning Cormac’s room into a big boy room and this Malm dresser from Ikea is way to blah to be in any after picture of mine!!!

Boring….

I could not bring myself to paint this dang thang.

I have painted Devon’s furniture (read about that here) and love the results. I wish the color were a little more white-gray than the white-blue it looks like, but I digress. (You know when I get bored enough I will repaint that shizz…)

I still mentally hug my painted hutch every time I walk into my kitchen. (Click here to pay a visit to that special girl).

I even have more painted stuff I haven’t shared on the blog yet, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do all that work for a piece of fake furniture.

So…
