One of the items I use a lot to decorate my house and I can get for free, is to reuse bottles or jars as vases. I love to recycle these pieces, the wine bottles, water bottles or soda bottles (glass bottles of course) can be used very nicely in different compositions playing with the heights and shapes of the bottles. It definitely gives a special touch to any corner of your home… and did I already mentioned that they are free? I don’t think twice about asking for water bottles to take home in restaurants … and so far I have not received any no’s.
Here you will see a small selection of images of bottles to use, how to use them and how to be inspired to integrate it into your personal style. Hope you like it.
One of the decorative pieces that I have in my living room, is this branch with small hanging origami birds. Although is very simple, everyone who comes to my house asks about how to make these. I love origami birds, my Danish family always make them. For me it’s a little piece of my family at home and today I will share with you how I make them. They are very easy to make and you can put them in any corner of your home or office. Want to try?
As some of you may know, this last Sunday my husband and I had our birthday… Yes, you heard right, our birthday is the same day. It’s a bit weird, but at the same time it feels a bit like Christmas, it’s a gift exchange tradition.
I was able to buy this old leather armchair. He has always wanted one, but never has taken the step to buy one. (He is a total vintage -leather -industrial freak) And I could not resist buying this beautiful leather chair I found and sneak it home with a surprise party with all his family. He was so surprised! He loved it! At the same time I wanted to give the gift with a DIY touch, to make it a little more personalized. So I opt for making him a DIY stamped pillow for the chair, that says “El sillón de Jose Luis” witch in spanish means “Jose Luis’s chair”
Here I will show you step by step how I did it. It’s a very simple tutorial and with this technique you can make very original pillows. Wan’t to try?
Spring is around the corner, and I already have itchy fingers for making changes in my home! I love to transform the spaces and corners for a new season… For a long time I was trying to catch a pair of night tables, but oh my! the prices in the market are crazy! So although I did not like the actual ones I had, I decided to transform them to save me some money… and you actually save a lot this way!
See how you can make a DIY bedside table makeover very easy and very cheap!
