do any of you find yourself doing DIY at crazy hours??? Why??
i do, because i don’t have time during the day. :/
well here I am posting about mine at 3:35 a.m.
So today (technically yesterday) after class (8:15 p.m.) i decided to go to michael’s and get some supplies i needed for the DIY’s i’ve had in mind, when i got home (after dinner & parents went to sleep) i couldn’t resist & did some practicing, & some half way stuff!! :] here it is!! :]
PROJECT # 1
so, i’m just practicing on my rehearsal dinner guest sign in (family & very close friends who are in the bridal party) :] i will spray paint this frame my brother’s left when they moved out… in black! = free!
i’m using a 16 X 20 drawing paper to practice, i got the real canvas for the real one(which i got for free from my school’s art teacher! Yay! )
check it out!!
I went ahead & tested out the 4 ink colors i chose! apple green, olive green, green & brown!
& TADA!!! here is the finished practice product!!
i will print in card stock & frame these directions next to the “painting” :]
:] its bilingual! :p
& WOW, i just noticed i accidentally wrote august on the painting when its really October! lol
good thing it was practice!!
PROJECT # 2
personalized bridesmaid hangers! :]
The hangers were “free”. FI & i bought a box of about 100 at a yard sale about a year ago for a buck!!, yes. $1!
I only bought the 12 gauge flower wire from Michael’s for $5. (which only was enough for 3 bridesmaids)
i used my dad’s rusty old wire cutters & went at it! :] & here is my result. (again, not finished yet!
oh! & here are some goodies i found in the last 2 days!!
Yesterday (13.5″ white footed cake stand) form Crate&Barrel for $29.99!
& on my way to class i stopped at an antique store & picked up these scrabble pieces for $4! the letters make up oud nicksname & my Mrs. “FI’s Name”!! :] cute huh!?
so there you have it ladies, feel free to comment, they me me happy! :]
