IMG_9985

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all a super easy DIY. It takes a few minutes to do, but transform this kid like peg board into something more chic. I picked this peg board from Target. It was only $3 from the dollar section and I knew I could spray paint this into something more modern.

I loved the way this simple DIY turned out all you really need is a can of spray paint in the color of your choosing and BAM you have a unique peg board custom to your style.

Please let me know if you enjoy these kinds of blog post so I can do more of them in the future.

What has been your favorite DIY that you have done? 

Have a great day! I will see you on Friday.

DIY Deadpool Themed Jean Jacket

IMG_0580

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a really awesome DIY project I had been working on for the new release of Deadpool 2. I really wanted to wear something that showed my love for Deadpool, but not dress up in costume. I compromised on this jean jacket and at the end of it all I had such a great time watching Deadpool 2.

IMG_0529Step One:

Use a jacket you already have, or find one at the thrift store or at your local retail store that maybe on clearance. I wanted to add more texture to my jacket and decide to spray paint it and sponge on some white paint all over it (this step can be optional).

Step two:

Buy a assortment of iron on patches and place them in the areas you feel work best with the jacket. I also purchased iron on letters and numbers to add Deadpool’s last name and the year the comic was created.

Step Three:

Follow the directions on each of the patches and apply heat. You can also use fabric glue to apply the patches if you don’t own a iron.

(Optional) Step Four:

My iron on letters had me peel off the plastic bit off of them to complete my look.

The finished product!

This DIY was so much fun to create and I am so excited to try to create more wearable DIY’s in the future. I hope you all enjoyed.

Are any of you Deadpool fans? How about any other superhero?

Have a great weekend!

Spring Wreath DIY

IMG_0050

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today I am sharing with you one of my first spring DIYs. I started this DIY last year and never actually finished it. Call me level 10 procrastinator, but sometimes things happen and you have to put projects away until next year and that is exactly what happened. All of the supplies I use are actually very affordable. The flowers come from the dollar store and the wire base comes from Walmart for a few bucks. I used floral wire and my glue gun to secure it in place.

I am so excited for this post because I finally got around to do this cute D.I.Y project. I have been lusting over these amazing Kate Spade polka dot ked sneakers. The only downside is they are $75 yikes! So what does a stingy/budget friendly fashionista do? Make them her self of course. Here is how you can achieve a similar result. Please remember these are inspired and not an exact replica.

What you will need:
-White Ked like sneakers (mine are from target)
-Black and Pink all-purpose paint
-Foam roller (circle shaped)
-A paper plate
-A small brush

**This process can take up to an hour to complete and 6-12 hours for the shoes to dry.**

I used Martha Stewart paint from Michael’s these were $1.39 on sale.

Place a small amount of black paint onto your paper plate and use your foam roller to create the circles. Spaces them as close or as far apart as you want. I decided to use two different size circles just for a variety but you can use whatever you want. Get creative this does not have to be perfect.

The next step is to paint the trim on your shoe with a bright pink. I free-handed this and it is not as neat as I would like it to be but I like the human touch it gives my shoes. While you are at it don’t forget to paint the tips of your shoe laces and your DONE!

Allow for these to dry over night until you put the laces back in. Here is your finished product.
