With the amount of painting I’ve done around the house you’d think i’d be an expert by now. Not even close. I find myself making the same mistakes every time! I decided to make a list of my most common painting fails, so you don’t have to make the same mistake when painting!
Foreword: the second year goes much quicker than the first. A lot more feeling comfortable and alot less work getting done… But we did still get a lot done. Some of it small like getting new furniture (new couch, bench, coffee table, and cabinet), finishing up some projects and starting some new ones.
Wishing all my readers a VERY Happy (and healthy and full) Thanksgiving and a successful Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday!
Side note: Life has been hectic lately and I’ve been slacking on my DIYing. Stay tuned for more. Trust me! In the meantime, I am accepting guest blogs. If you are interested send me your ideas to: email@example.com.
With the changing of the seasons, people start to clean all of their apartments or houses. Some of them may hire a cleaning company which will do this for them, but most of the people will do this by themselves. It is good for your health to clean the whole flat, every inch of your place, at least twice a year. Moreover, the so called scrub-up is good to make your home even more comfortable. If you start this task by yourself, probably this article may help you to save time.
I’ve been really trying to get back into the swing of crafting to prep me for the big projects the house needs once the summer ends. So after a trip through my favorite craft store, I decided to start small and, even though it took some experimenting with Mod Podge, make a coffee table tray (since we finally got a proper coffee table)! It was perhaps the easiest craft so far! Check out how to make your own Mod Podge coffee table tray below!
-Wood tray (or anything similar that you are trying this with)
-Designed paper (like scrapbooking paper or thin wallpaper)
- PAINT! I painted everything but the bottom (because I was planning on putting paper there. I always miss spots so I did a second coat along the edges
- LET DRY! Patience (or lack of) always gets the best of me here but try to let it dry. I used acrylic paint and it only took like 15 minutes to dry.
- MOD PODGE! I used two different papers (three sheets in total). Make sure to do them how they will lay and do separately. I also used a sponge brush.
- SECOND COAT! If necessary. It is though, trust me.
What do you think? Try it out and let me know! Have ideas for other fun (and easy) crafts to do with Mod Podge? Let me know below in the comments. Would love to try out your ideas!
