What do you do when you have four birthdays in two weeks? You make homemade Drake-inspired birthday cards, obviously.
Thanks to generous donations from family members, a couple of trips to the hardware store and some great thrift shop finds, my apartment is completely furnished (until I decide to change it all around on my bf, of course).
I am proud of my work, as one should be with DIY projects, so I have decided to post a round-up of some before and after pics of my pieces. Take a look!
I guess need I to stop saying that I never complete a DIY because since I started this blog, I have successfully done 3 projects from start to (almost) finish. Three claps for Erinn! I guess that’s what happens when you decide to move on a very tight budget… Continue reading
I finished a DIY project! I repeat: I FINISHED A DIY PROJECT. (And it feels so good). I’ve had my eye on this one for a while… since I picked up those boring and plain wooden spoons, to be exact. I just needed to make sure that I had the time, patience and supplies to finally get started. Here’s how it went.
I have always been intrigued yet intimidated by reupholstering projects. Giving a good quality chair (and I’m not talking about IKEA) an update had always seemed like a great idea, but I never had the balls to actually get started. Until now. Continue reading
Last December, my boyfriend and I had to say goodbye to each other for the first time in over a year and start our LDR. I was moving to Toronto and he was staying in Montreal for school. I wanted to do a small little something for him to make the whole thing suck a little bit less. Over to Pinterest I went and I found this cute “Open When…” envelope idea. They are simply a collection of letters for him to open during certain occasions while we’re apart.
Disclaimer: If you do not like cute ‘n’ corny things, then you probably will not enjoy this post so keep on scrolling. But if you can appreciate a good old-fashioned, lovey-dovey gesture, then you’ve come to the right place! Continue reading
With every pin that I pin to my “have made/will make” board on Pinterest, I have great intentions. I am not one of those pinners that pins everything willie-nillie; I contemplate what I’m about to pin, especially onto this board, ensuring that I will actually, someday, make this glitter-painted mason jar craft. But please do not ask me how many pins from this board change from “will make” to “have made”…it’s embarrassing.
As I prepare to move into a new apartment (finally living in Toronto instead of living in “Toronto”), my intentions of DIYing something are just as good, if not better, than they ever were before. I have so many plans to run to the nearest craft store and pick up all of the supplies and a gallon of ModPodge to begin. But I move out in a couple of weeks and alas, have not actually finished* any projects.
