SUMMER OF DIY
Jane and I have decided that this summer we would focus a lot on DIY projects. We have no travel plans–thank goodness, so lots of long stretches of time to work on being creative. Here are a couple of projects just finished…..
I bought this chair at a consignment store for around $200. I had it recovered in plain canvas for $100, then the amazing Sam from StyleSwoon took the chair home and spray painted it with graffiti, then I put two coats of clear acrylic on it. This chair now resides in Jane's room. It was a great inexpensive DIY project that added a lot to her bedroom. I totally redid her bedroom while she was in Italy, and I will post pictures soon.
I made this cat claw muffler from an old leopard faux fur coat purchased at the thrift store.
The cat claws are from spikesandstuds.com. It's a great site, and they have great customer service.
I'm going to do some more work with these claws, and I will post a tutorial. Making the scarf was easy, but the claws are a little tricky. More later…..
