DIY projects/ before and after

I am attempting to make a couple of small gifts for my little nieces and nephew for christmas. A lot harder than you think.

Anyway I have managed to complete one present so far. Looks like someone might be rushing to the shops before next week.

I decided to do some printing on paper today and I really like how they turned out.

Maybe they might make perfect christmas cards for our overseas family and friends.

The pink palace, aka our apartment, only has a built-in robe in the second bedroom which is fine for now but if a visitor was to stay I think the rolling rack below would come in handy. Also I like the idea of using the rolling rack to display your good outfits and favourite shoes.

TIP: insert a broom stick or dowel through the top pipe so you can hang heavy items without bending the pipe.

Thanks for Heather for this DIY project!


I just love colour on the inside of this frame.

I have the exact same mirror except in a full length version.

The only problem now is which colour to go with?

Do you have loads of spare potatoes left over since starting that low carb diet? Well here is another DIY painting idea using potatoes.

I love this DIY from Jordan from Oh Happy Day. She is a very talented DIYer and her blog is amazing.

Also if you like Damien Hirst’s dot paintings then you will like this –


Here is what I did Sunday afternoon. I finally finished that DIY Pyramid Painting project I posted about back March. And it now lives on our little table near the front door.


I really want to create some art for our new apartment and I think this simple DIY painting might just be the winner.
