If anything can get me excited more than shoes it’s…well, more shoes.
Honestly even if I weren’t planning on wearing an old pair of boots anymore the idea of cutting them would still scare me, but the outcome is just too awesome to miss out on. If you’re made of braver stuff than I head over to Made in Pretoria for more information!.
I’m not really sure what to call this as the original poster referred to it as “air-dried or cold porcelain” and some commenters were quick to correct her. I guess consider it an air-drying dough? Clay? Something along those lines.
Anyway, if you try this out be sure to check the comments on this tutorial at The Junk Wave from people who tried this recipe. That way you’ll know what to look out for if you run into a sticky situation. Casual warning that there’s some drama *sigh*.
Things I love about living in a city: finding old stuff on the curb to furnish our apartment on trash days. We’ve managed to find tables, cabinets, chests, mirrors, and TVs to help make our house our own home. I have yet to find a lamp, though. I guess there’s always the thrift store!
As much as I am not a fan of spray paint (hooray environment!) this DIY for revamping an old lamp requires only that. Head over to Unusually Lovely for some instructions.
Restyle that old/thrift-find jean jacket that’s hanging in your jacket with ribbon or trim! Attach by sewing or fabric glue. It would also look pretty interesting to do this down the back instead, as Kinsey wrote in her original post. Visit her project blog at Sincerely, Kinsey by clicking through the picture.
