Clothesline Photo Display

March 19, 2015

diy clothesline photo display

I finally got around to a project I’ve been meaning to do for quite a long time. It all started when I found a couple packs of adorable, washi-tape inspired, clothes-pins in a dollar bin. I had the immediate idea for a little… clothes pin & twine photo display thingy. I don’t know what to call it, (Clothesline Photo Display, is as good as it’s gonna get) if you know what this thing is, let me know — in the meantime, here is how I made it:

Make any arm chair, into a swivel rocker

February 25, 2015

Ok, before I get to this easy and really cool DIY… I gotta back, back, back-it-up … just a little.

Remember this little gem? It was so good. And, a fantastic practice in reupholstery, for me. There was just one small problem. The more I sat in it, and reminisced about the good ‘ol days with the Baby Kiddo… y’know… the late night feedings, and rocking back to sleep… the more I realized this new chair wasn’t going to cut it. The back barely hit my shoulders and there was no where to rest a weary head at 2 o’clock in the morning. Hmm… what was the next best thing?

Easy DIY to add a swivel rocker to an arm chair

How about Frankenstein-ing the rocker/swivel from this chair and adding it to another?? Maybe? Could I do that? Well, let’s find out…

I was keeping my eye out for a while, when I finally came across my next victim an ideal candidate… A high-back armchair, on sale for about $270. Could this work??

Add a swivel rocker to any arm chair.

Valentine Art

February 14, 2015

I’m not so big on Valentine’s Day. I should say “we aren’t”, as I am part of a couple. We’ve just never done the chocolates and candy thing. However, I CAN get behind the sentiment of the day. It can’t hurt to pass along some ooey-gooey feelings, towards your loved ones, right? (I’m not that much of a Valentine scrooge!) But, it’s a little funny that I have a full-fledged, Valentine inspired project, to share today.

There is this big community event in our area, that happens every year, in the middle of winter. It’s great because it gets everyone outside for the whole weekend, with a ton of events, for kids of all ages — and of course, it falls on Valentine’s Day.

This year, there was a NEW event, called, “Chill! The outdoor art exhibit”, and I decided to get involved. Enter, my Valentine art project…

What the heck is that, you say?! Well, it’s art, it’s Valentine-y, and most of all… it’s got some hidden messages. But, let me back up, and show you where it all started.
