Make This! Abstract Wall Art Using a Hair Dryer

DIY abstract art using a hair dryer

Lately I've been getting sucked into watching painting videos on Instagram. The abstract paintings are the best. I love the ones where the artist is seemingly just messing around, throwing paint here and there, when suddenly BAM! – some well-placed paint or drip technique brings it all together. While I'm not as clever an abstract painter as these Instagram stars are, you don't have to be an expert to make some fun abstract wall art. I made this piece the other day using a hair dryer – keep reading and I'll show you how.               Continue Reading

Make This: Easy Wall-Mounted Air Plant Holder

Make This!: Wall-mounted air plant holder

One of the things I love about air plants – also known as tillandsia – is that they can be displayed in virtually unlimited ways.

Which, for someone like me who loves crafting things, is the gift that keeps on giving. Continue Reading

This is where printable bathroom wall art comes in. Continue Reading

The trouble with renting apartments is that they often come with a “no painting” clause in the contract.  This is truly the bane of my renting existence, but hope is not lost!  When Interior Designer Stephanie Sabbe found herself with walls with a bad case of the “no-paint blahs”, and put herself right to work.  The result is something that would also make my walls very happy.

4 Hot Italian Font Wallpapers

Font decorating hasn’t captivated me, until now. These four rooms, dressed up in graphic font wallpapers by the Italian company Wall and Deco, have me rethinking this whole font decor thing.
