On top of the bold colours we’ve chosen， this space is very eclectic in its decor with a mix of modern and classic pieces. Handcrafted touches such as the garland and artwork keep the aesthetic playful and child-friendly.
To make the headboard we took a 1m？x？1.3m piece of 4mm MDF and drew a half-circle at the top edge of the board. Using an electric jigsaw， we cut around the shape. We then sanded the edges and painted it in two coats of Resene ‘Alabaster’. The result is a great headboard at a fraction of the price of a bought one.
Who says decorative items need to cost a fortune？ In this room we simply used Resene testpots to make these fun and easy art pieces.
To create the artwork and garland， paint A4 sheets of card with a brush or small roller in your chosen colours and leave to dry. Once the card is dry， cut out love-heart shapes for the garland and letters for the artwork. You can use templates from the internet if you aren’t confident at cutting freehand. For the garland we hole-punched two holes at the top of the hearts and threaded them onto twine. The painted letters were glued onto a sheet of cardboard and placed in a frame.
All the colours seen here are from the Resene Total Colour System. Paints and colours are available from Resene ColorShops and resellers nationwide. resene.co.nz/colorshops or 0800 RESENE (737 363).
Have you carved or decorated pumpkins yet? Dan and I bought two pumpkins to decorate over the weekend but didn’t get to them because we were too busy stuffing our faces with fish & chips. I bought a few things to recreate?this pumpkin with the bats?so we’ll see how that turns out.?Is it weird that I like pumpkins as is? Without any decorations? If I had a porch I would decorate it with some of those multi-colored pumpkins. But that isn’t really much fun when you want to do something creative with your hands. I’ve done a?DIY Pumpkin Ideas post?in the past but since then I’ve seen so many pretty ideas on Pinterest that it was time to do a second one.
I should also mention the ribbon is another after Christmas deal at Joann’s…like a .89 cent deal! ? So happy with the way this Valentine’s Owl ?Love You Wreath turned out especially since the whole project cost less than $5 too!
As someone who often works from home, I’ve found setting up an actual desk area and creating a “workspace” is key to my productivity. So many of us are digital nomads who can work from anywhere, and creating a sanctuary of a space that fuels your creativity and keeps you organized is a great way to master the art of working remotely.
