Wall Board – A wood construction for my apartment

IMG_7975

Hey Everybody,

Last time I made the “wood picture holder” to decorate my room with some pictures.
In the search for a perfect place for my finished project, I came across to this blank wall in my apartment.
Since a long time I have been searching for some decoration to give this part of my room some color.
Just a poster was not special enough.
Another problem is that I love to receive postcards, but it is really sad that they end up in my desk drawer.

So one day I was standing in front of the wall and finally I got a good idea for my problem.

I would build a card holder for my room, on the same principle as the wood picture holder.
For the back I took a wooden panel, which is 37 cm wide, 92 cm long and 0,5 cm thick.
Further I needed strips of wood, in my case they are 37 cm wide, 3 cm thick and 1,5 cm high. (For each 5 pieces.)
Before I glue my wood strips on the panel, I cut slits in them for holding cards or pictures.
Every 16 cm I fixed the wood strips on the wooden panel.
All finished!

I am so happy with this solution. An eye-catcher with practical function.

Upcycle Your Shirt – to make it longer and to give it color.

Hey Everbody! Have you ever had a shirt and you wanted to create something different with it? I love recycling old clothes and making something new with it. I was at the thrift store and found two of the same dresses with this amazing colorful pattern and an off white chiffon shirt. I kept one of the dresses in my size for myself and I used the fabric of the other dress to add to the shirt.

Here is what you need:

  • Scissor
  • Sewing Machine
  • Shirt
  • Colorful Fabric
  • Pins
  • Ruler

Have fun upcycling your shirts!

An easy way to give your room a new style | Handmade curtain

A curtain is not just a way to secure your room against the prying eyes of your neighbor. 🙂
You can give your home a new atmosphere.

I needed a curtain but I didn’t want to got to a store and buy one. So I started searching for a nice fabric in my boxes. I found the grey one, but the fabric was to short for my window. After a second look I discovered the rest of the white fabric and I sewed it together. Finished! A very easy inexpensive curtain with a big effect.

That’s a good sewing project for beginners. Have fun!
