ETC

Pinterest released there 2017 Trend Report for home decor, and I was excited to see I’ve already been adding some of the top trending ideas to my designs! Plus, there are a few I have been dying to try… removable wallpaper (+355%)…yes please! I thought it would be fun to share a few of my faves, and spot them in my room makeovers.
A “No Closet” Closet (+50%) – When I madeover my friends’ nursery in their condo, we had to get creative in the small space and create a place to hang Baby Girl’s clothes with a branch and twine. Nursery makeover here!

Off Season Storage (+160%) : I am all about finding storage that doubles as decor. For Liam’s playroom we used two shelves horizontally to display his current favorite toys, and tuck away the other in wooden storage boxes. Camp room makeover here! 
ispydiy_flippinfriends_bathroom9-1
Shower Plants  (+302%) : It’s impossible to forget to water these plant! I added them to give a little life to a tiled bathroom. Hanging them gives a pop of greenery, while keeping the floor space clear. Bathroom makeover here!

Vertical Bar Car (+303) : Ok, to be fair, this one might be cheating because the trend is actually creating a shelving unit on the wall that is used as a “bar cart” for small spaces…but I think this little one on wheels would be perfect for anyone lacking square footage. Bar cart post here! 
ispydiy_bedroom_makeover19
Round Mirrors (+35%) : Use round mirror in bedrooms and bathrooms for functional and fashionable look. Woodsy bedroom makeover here! 
Ispydiy_bedroom_makover-1
Accessories as Decor (+144%) : Instead of buying expensive art, use your hats and jewelry as decor. It adds your personal style to a space and double as space saver. Woodsy room makeover here! 

For more trends on Pinterest’s home report, head this way! Which ones are you excited to see more of in 2017?

I SPY DIY DESIGN | Boy’s Room Makeover + DIY Live Edge Desk

DIY PROJECT, Home DIY

ispydiy_boysbedroom1
I’m back with another fun room makeover! This time we transition Lori’s nursery into a woodsy themed room for her son (remember his camp playroom? And Lori’s bedroom oasis?). Buffalo check is my current favorite, so I was jazzed when I saw that Lori had already purchase some plaid items for the room. I took that theme and ran with it! My favorite part of the room is the chalkboard wall and live edge desk. You should have seen how excited Liam was when we told him he could draw on the wall!

I have become quite the hoarder of live edge pieces of wood, and this one worked perfectly as a little desk. I sanded down the sharp corners and covered with 2 coats of  a fast-drying polyurethane, then drilled shelf brackets into the studs and the bottom of the wood.

We upgraded Liam from a crib to bunkbeds (the ladder is in hiding until he is ready to safety climb)! I am in love with the blue, it’s the perfect shade!

I found some line drawings of a lantern and other woodsy things, and the plan was to get a projector, but they ended up being simple enough to freehand (the magic of chalk is that you can mess up as much as you want, and wipe it away!) Hope you like the room as much as Liam did!

MY DIY | Entryway Succulent Storage 

DIY KITS, Home DIY

ispydiy_succulentholder17
If you are anything like me, you know how hard it is to walk past the succulent section and not buy at least one…or two of those cute plants! Then, after you’ve amassed a collection you need a place to display them, right? I love the idea of using a vintage file cabinet or tool shelf, and had been search for one for a while. Then I found this one tucked away at my favorite thrift store! It was enormous, and a little beat up, but I knew with a little TLC it would make the perfect entryway piece.

The original color was a minty green, which I loved, but parts were left unpainted, so I decided to freshen it up. I was so jazzed to find Krylon® ColorMaster™ Paint + Primer – 25% More in Satin Jade because the color was similar, but brighter and more modern. The coverage was amazing and because there is so much paint in the can, I only used one can to cover the entire shelf! Also, because of the way the tip of the can functions, it was so easy to turn the can 360 and cover each of all the shelving units.

After spray painting it (I used two coats of paint to achieve this color), and letting it dry, I scuffed up some of the edges and corners with 220 grit sandpaper to give it a bit more of that vintage worn in look. While I let that dry, I started on all the succulent pots. I bought a bunch of inexpensive terracotta pots that I sprayed with three coats of fun colors: ColorMaster Paint + Primer – 25% More in Gloss Sun Yellow, Gloss Bright Idea, and Matte Aqua. After those dried, I potted the succulents and decked out the entryway piece. I LOVE how it turned out! What do you all think? Step and supplies after the break… (more…)
