Hope your Thursday is getting off to the right step...mine is already rocking thanks to Katie from Newcomb Home, who is guest posting for me today...holla. Be sure and check her out! And really, really quick ;), if you are on Facebook, would you mind doing me a favor? My Fish Scale Wall Art is up as a finalist on Consumer Crafts, would you mind 'liking' the photo? I would be ever grateful! You can do so by clicking HERE ;)
Hi there Two Thirty-Five Designs Readers! I’m Katie from Newcomb Home. I’m excited to be at Allison's site today to show off a few of my favorite projects.
I live with my husband and two furry roommates in Portland, Oregon. I blog about all things related to my house and our life renovating it – great tips for home improvement, beautiful (and cheap!) decorating ideas, and what to do when your water main starts flooding the garage :) On occasion I’ll even throw in my feeble attempts at cooking (if I can succeed no doubt you can too!).
I hope you’ll head over to Newcomb Home to check out some of these projects!
|That's the husband and me, looking way too relaxed since we’re on vacation!|
One of my favorite projects, and one I’m excited to share with you, is my DIY wall art. I’ve included a super easy tutorial that will help anyone make some fantastic art for their wall. All you need are some frames, scrapbook paper, acrylic paint, and a stencil.
The best part is that this entire project cost 70 bucks! Including the frames! Can’t beat that price. The second project I'd like to share is how 8 cans of spray paint updated my guest room. I’m really proud of this room, since I was able to update some old furniture so easily, and because the stripes on the wall turned out :)
And this before and after might look like a subtle change, but it made a huuuge difference in our newly tiled shower. AND we saved a ton of money because instead of buying spendy edge tile, we just had to buy one tube of caulk!
You can see the latest in our bathroom remodel here. We’re not quite done with all the finishing work, but its changed so much. Even though it was a ton of work, I’m so happy with our progress so far. We were able to reuse lots of materials and get a whole new bathroom without breaking the bank!
I hope you’ll head on over to Newcomb Home to check out all of our projects, recipes, and all the tomfoolery we get ourselves into fumbling our way through home renovation.
Thanks again Allison for the opportunity to introduce myself on your fabulous blog!
