Feeling a little creative

Since I came back from my vacation, I am feeling artsy. Yes, that happens to me sometimes. As I got home, I cleaned, organized everything inside and did a lot of laundry. Then I looked around and got into that let’s-give-a-little-makeover-to-the-house mood. So I gathered five DIY tutorials that I will try soon.

-The first one I am going to try is this tutorial from Harpers Happenings. I have a frame that I bought two years ago and it has been moved from place to place with no specific purpose. This is a lovely idea.

-I will spray paint an old rock I have in the balcony and I am going to use it as a book holder like Bri from «Design Love Fest» did in her office makeover.

-There is something about gold spray paint that makes any object feel pretty. It’s shiny and glamorous. Hey! That is why I used it in my blog’s name. Smart girl right? 🙂 I used it in this tutorial too. The picture above is from the Style Me Pretty blog.

Organized Jewelry: From boring to fabulous

We have a small room in our apartment that I declared mine. (Yes I’m kind of territorial). At first it was a fun craftroom then a girly office. None of that worked out. It was abandoned and non creative.

One day I was smashing clothes inside drawers and asphyxiating dresses inside the closet and it hit me. Why not have a big walking closet? BINGO. The little room became my room of wonders.

My vanity table had finally found a home, my clothes finally breathed and my jewelry, well my jewelry was feeling good but not pretty.

Yesterday I gave my room of wonders a makeover and now my little trinkets are displayed for me to hug them and wear them.

It was organized but kind of dull.

My necklaces tangled and it was kind of hidden mess.

Here we go: organized and pretty. I bought 3 things that helped a lot: a necklace mannequin, a bracelet holder and a necklace and earring holder. Here you can find the DIY versions of jewelry display.
