Upcycling a Crib Spring

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Hey guys!!  I’m here today with a really fun and easy project for you!  It’s the last piece for my girls’ reading corner in their room.

Upcycle a crib spring into a fun photo display!!

Isn’t she pretty?!  It started last year (Yep, I said last YEAR!!) when I was helping one of my brothers and his wife move.  My nephew was transitioning out of his crib into his big boy bed and my brother was going to throw the crib spring out.  Have no worries though, because I came to the rescue haha.  Trash picking is kind of my thing so I saw potential where nobody else did.  I originally planned to paint it a cream color and hang it in my kitchen.  I partially painted it and then it sat.  And sat.  And sat.  Did I mention it just sat?  And that brings us to the present day.  Enter spray paint and a beautiful morning.

Upcycle a crib spring into a fun photo display!!

Upcycle a crib spring into a fun photo display!!

It’s really easy.  Just remember that when you spray paint you want to do several light coats as opposed to one very thick coat.  That will prevent you from having paint runs.  Paint it really well on the front and the back.  Once it’s all dry you can hang that bad boy up!  I used 3″ screws into studs and just laid it on the screws.  This is probably not the most secure way to do it so if you have little ones that will be pulling on it you will probably want to hang it up a different way.  My kids know that I am the only one allowed to put pictures on or off and in the few weeks that it’s been in their room they haven’t messed with it at all.

Upcycle a crib spring into a fun photo display!!

I got some cute clothes pins from the Target Dollar Spot, woot woot, and used those to hang up our pictures.  That cute wood sign is from Hobby Lobby and was on sale for like 3 bucks!  Yay, for a great deal!  I am absolutely in love with how my girls room is coming together!  I really wanted a gallery wall which I love a ton!

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

But this corner is by far my favorite!  Between the book display, wall mount doll house, tissue paper pom poms (target), the crib spring picture display, and that sweet In The Morning Jesus sign from my Etsy shop, I could stare at this space all day!!

Upcycle a crib spring into a fun photo display!!

I have one more spot in their room that I will be sharing with you guys next week!  I hope you come back to see it and please come back tomorrow because I have another really great giveaway happening!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Maker Wednesdays–Loren Miller

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Happy hump day!  Guys, have I got a good one for you today!  One of my favorite and most beeeeautiful friends, Loren Miller, is here with us today to share a great inexpensive DIY.  If you don’t know her already (GASP!!!) please please head over to her Instagram and start stalking, I mean following, her!  She is so amazing!  Now that I’ve gone on and on about her lets get onto the post so I can prove my point about how awesome and gorgeous she is haha.

Loren Miller – DIY Potted Moss Trees
I’m a wifey of 8 years to my handsome hubby, and a momma to our three kiddos. I am an esthetician and makeup artist who took up DIY-ing/home decor after switching careers to a full time stay at home mom. I had to get creative due to an expensive taste and money conservative husband. :) I am also a writer for Society Letters, Contributor to Everything Home Magazine, and I have my own Etsy shop: Mydearlittlethings
Loren Miller-1
I was so excited when Steph asked me to be a guest blogger for her. Although I must admit I was feeling rather stumped. It was just another Monday and I was just consuming my 5th pot, er cup of coffee. I had just finished getting myself and my three young kids ready, and for all you mamas out there, you know what an accomplishment that is! We live in the city and we are a one car family. Mondays are my days for the car, so I plan my week accordingly. I go to grab the keys and they aren’t there. I don’t freak out too much because they are probably just hanging by the other door. Strike two. My phone buzzes and it’s my hubby – he took the car keys instead of his office keys. I may or may not have had a moment of silence for what would have been my glorious Monday. I had this idea of strolling through Marshall’s and Target picking out new kitchen decor. But my husband doesn’t need to know that!
Alas, my broken heart needed to figure out a plan B. So I decided to make the most out of my day, and DIY my own moss trees. I love shopping at home, and though it isn’t quite the same, sometimes it’s even better! I grabbed whatever I could find, and the beauty of this DIY is that I finished it in under 30 minutes. Most of these things can be found at the dollar store, or even outside.  
Let’s get to it!
Supplies: 
• Twigs, or sticks – whatever you prefer 
• Styrofoam balls, or decor balls 
• Moss ( I got mine from the dollar store )
• Glue gun and glue 
• Pots 
 Loren Miller-2
Step 1:
Take your ball form, put glue all over it. I used a lower heat for my glue so it wouldn’t burn my fingers. Moss tends to be messy anyway so I poured it on the counter, and rolled the glue covered ball around in the moss. Do this until it is covered. 
Loren Miller-3
Step 2: 
Put your twig and or stuck inside the ball. 
Loren Miller-4
Step 3: 
Secure your twig and ball into your pot. 
I used moss and glue as well as Buckeyes. You could use rocks, more styrofoam etc. whatever you have on hand. 
 Step 4:
Step back and enjoy! 
Loren Miller-5
Loren Miller-6Loren Miller-7Loren Miller-8
 I made three of these, but I can totally see myself making more of these in different sizes in the future. I think a moss tree forest sounds magical don’t you? There are many ways this could be adapted, and I hope you have fun with whatever way you go about making yours! They are a perfect spring accent with just the right touch of green. 
See?!?!  I told you she was cool!  I think I will be making some of the moss trees very soon!  Thanks so much, Lo!!  Remember to go follow Loren on Instagram and myself and subscribe so you never miss any of the goodness happening around here!  Come back tomorrow another great DIY and as always we have an amazing giveaway that I will be announcing on Friday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hand Painted Framed Wood Sign

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Hey guys!!  So, thanks for stopping in today!  I’m sharing with you guys one of my favorite projects that I do!  They’re so pretty and make fantastic gifts!  I know we’ve all seen the beautiful signs all over social media in the beautifully styled homes.  Well, I’m here to tell you that you can make them for yourself!  But if you aren’t into that type of thing you should head to Etsy to pick up one of these beauties for yourself…I happen to have my very own Etsy shop that I just reopened that offers these lovely little babes haha.

Now that I’m done with that shameless plug let’s get on with it!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my post a few weeks back of my “Because of the Brave” wood sign.

Learn how to DIY your own beautiful wood sign plus free cut file

Isn’t she purdy?  I made this cutie last year for Fourth of July.  Want to see a picture of how I styled it taken with the worlds saddest smart phone?

Learn how to DIY your own beautiful wood sign plus free cut file

Womp womp womp!  Luckily I have been able to move up in the cell phone world and my pictures are now a little bit better haha.  Anyways, doesn’t it look cute next to my chalkboard?  You can see how I made it here.

So, for the sign I don’t really have progress pictures because I didn’t plan on posting it.  I do have pictures though from a sign I made as a teacher gift so I can show you the steps I take.  And please fell free to leave any questions in the comments and I’ll do my best to explain anything that’s not clear.

Supplies

  • (1) 1×10-Cut to 9.25″ or 1/4″ plywood cut to 9.25″x9.25″
  • (4) 1×2 cut to fit picture
  • Paint (I use this this in “Ocean” and “Plaster”)
  • Stain (I use Dark Walnut)
  • Silhouette
  • Vinyl
  • Transfer paper

Step 1:

So the first two steps are what I don’t have pictures of.  You will want to download the cut file down at the bottom of this post.  It’s already sized for a 1×10 board but if you have a different size just resize it to whatever you need.  Now cut it out of vinyl.  I use this from BoGo Vinyl.  I find that it sticks well but comes off easily.  I tried the Hobby Lobby brand and it would be great if you were leaving the vinyl on but left a lot of sticky residue and ruined the sign when I took it off.  Paint your wood with the “Plaster” color paint.  Let dry very well (overnight if you’re patient enough) and then using your transfer paper apply the letter part of the stencil.  Paint over the whole thing with the “Ocean” paint.  I did 2 coats and then remove the stencil.  After that is completely dry you can sand it down to give it a distressed look like I did.

Step 2:

Sand and stain your 1×2.  I do this before cutting the board to make it easier.  When you stain your 1×2 make sure you wipe the stain off really well because it will just become sticky if you don’t.

Tip: If you plan on making a few signs you can sand and stain a few 1x2s at a time.  This way if you are ever wanting to make one you can easily just paint the sign and grab the already stained and ready to go 1×2 pieces to make your frame.

Step 3:

Now it’s time to frame.  If you use the 1×10 board it’s really easy.  Just lay the board on a flat surface and cut two pieces to board height.  Using a nail gun, glue and nail the frame flush with the bottom.  Measure what you need for the last two boards (board width plus 1.5″ from the frames you already put on.  Glue and nail them the same way.  The process for the plywood is a bit different.  Start by cutting two pieces of stained 1×2 and 2 pieces of just sanded 1×2.  You’ll lay the non stained boards flat and glue and nail the stained boards to them.

IMG_4256

Step 4:

Lay the sign onto the boards and nail through the sign into the non stained boards.

IMG_4257

Step 5:

Measure the sign now to figure out the length needed for the top and bottom frame pieces.  You will only need the stained boards here.  Glue and nail them into the rest of the frame that you have already built.

IMG_4258

Now you’re done if you want to be but I like to sand down the frame a little bit.  Then put it out and admire your awesome work!

I like to put it out with my favorite picture of me and my favorite vet!  Hubba hubba haha

Magnetic Picture Frame

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Good morning guys and welcome to the blog!  Today I have a really fun and easy project! The kiddos can even get in on this one, although mine didn’t haha.  When I was making these they had their friends over so crafting with mom was pretty much out of the question ha!  What is it that I’m sharing you ask?  Oh, you didn’t ask?  Let’s pretend you did, shall we?  I made these super cute magnetic picture frames!

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

Since we moved into our new house I have been slowly working on decorating.  When you are cheap and crafty, you DIY.  When you DIY things go a lot slower than they would if you just went out and bought everything.  But that’s okay!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the gallery wall I put together for my babes after they got their new bunk beds from grandma and grandpa!  If you don’t follow me I will still show you the gallery wall but you should definitely be friends with me on IG!

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!So let me first say I am obviously no photographer!  I mean honesty how do you photograph something like this haha?  But bad photog skills aside, I’m loving their gallery wall!  I showed you guys how I made the butteryfly art, coffee filter dresses, and typography print here.  The gazelles are garage sale finds for $2, woot woot!  They were plain brown and pretty ugly until they got a makeover with some spray paint.  The born together, friends forever picture was just vinyl I cut out with my silhouette and put onto a page I painted when my kiddos and I were using water colors.  I made the yarn pom pom garland for Valentine’s day.  The picture of them in the bottom left corner is just a plain frame that I modge podged scrap book paper onto and the narwahl is string art that we made when we went to visit our besties last summer!  Now that you have the run down of everything let’s get to the frames.  Do we even really call them frames?  Who knows, let’s just go with it.

Supplies:

  • 1/4″x2″x48″ hobby board (I use these from Home Depot.  They’re usually in a rolling cart near all of the 1x lumber)
  • Magnets
  • Craft Paint
  • Ribbon

Step 1:

Cut your boards to size.  I cut mine at 8.5″ but I should have printed the photos first and got my measurements from the pictures.  My boards are a little to long so I have white on either side of the pictures.

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

Step 2:

Paint your boards.  I chose to only paint the outsides because you wouldn’t be able to see the insides.  If you aren’t lazy like me paint both sides!

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

Step 3:

Attach your magnets with hot glue.  I have a little disclaimer to make.  My magnets kind of sucked and weren’t strong enough so I just hot glued the pictures to them haha.  You can either add more magnets or maybe try to get some stronger ones.  Mine were just a really cheap pack that I found in the kids craft aisle at Walmart.

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

Step 4:

Hot glue your ribbon to the inside of the back top piece.

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

That’s it folks!  Now you just put in your pictures and hang them up!  I got my hooks from a vendor at a market here in AZ called Junk in the Trunk!  I love how this whole wall has come together.

Easy DIY magnetic picture frames!  This is a great project to let the kids help!!

And I may be a little biased but those babes are kind of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!  I just wanna bite them!!

One last thing before I go.  I saw this project originally on Facebook on one of those cool little videos that everyone is posting nowadays.  If it was your video please let me know so I can give you the credit you deserve!

Come back tomorrow because my friends Teal Driftwood will be back tomorrow with a really awesome giveaway for you guys!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Maker Wednesdays–Hazel Grey

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Good morning!!  I hope you’re have a great week so far!  It’s Wednesday so that means we’re back with another Maker Wednesday post and today we have some of my Instagram besties, Hazel Grey!Tutorial to DIY your own distressed jars

They are an amazing sister team that make adorable rustic signs and have a slight coffee addiction.  Of course I was going to fall in love with them haha.  Here is a bit from them…

Hi everyone! We are so excited to have a guest post on Stephanie’s awesome blog! We have been following her on Instagram for a long time and just love her! 
Just a quick intro about us. 
We are Hazel Grey. Two sisters who have very different creative outlets, yet work together magically 😆. We are lovers of all DIY: upcyclying, creative lettering, woodwork etc. We live for caffeine and would probably do 25 to life without it …hahah jk 😅 but seriously, you won’t ever catch us without our coffee… It’s part of our outfit!!!!
Thanks again for reading our post! We hope you learn a little something about distressing mason jars. By far one of our favorites.

Step 1:

Grab some supplies!

  • Whichever paint you have (spray paint//house paint//acrylic paint)
  • Glass jar with some sort of texture, so it stands out when you’re done sanding (mason jar//spaghetti jar etc)
  • Coarse sand paper (60-80 grit is best but you can use whatever you have) or nail file (little more time consuming but no biggy)
IMG_1153
IMG_1155
Step 2:

Once your paint of choice has dried, grab your sand paper and sand all edges//bottom of jar and any textured areas) choose different areas of the jar (you don’t want the distressed areas to be symmetrical- symmetry isn’t fun when distressing😂)

 
(Back to step one: I forgot to say… Painting doesn’t have to be perfect and just whatever kind of brush you have)
IMG_1157
IMG_1158

Step 3:

You’re done! Now go dress it up with twine/flowers/pens etc!  You can also add glitter if you want!
 
After doing a few jars you’ll find out which jar/paint and sanding technique you love best!!!!

Aren’t they the best?!  I love taking things that aren’t super pretty (especially used jars—I may have a bit of a hoarders problem here) and making them beautiful decor!  Thank you so much for posting today!  Don’t forget to go follow them on Instagram and give them tons of love!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Forage and Lace Giveaway

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Good morning my loves!  How was your week?  Well, let’s try to make it even better for one lucky reader!  It’s Friday so that means we have our second ever Simply Lovely Lumber weekly giveaway!  This week we have Lindsay from Forage and Lee.  She makes the most beautiful  macramés!  Here is Lindsay with a little bit about herself and her business…

My name is Lindsay Lee of Forage & Lace and I am a fiber artist specializing in macramé! I am 32 years old living in Vancouver, BC Canada and a first time mom to my daughter Avery Dawn born July 2015!
I first tampered with macramé about 2 years ago, made a couple things and forgot about it. I distanced myself from social media for a bit and so I lost touch with what was current or not trending. I found macramé again this year in February 2016 and decided that I would no longer sit back and be stagnant with my art. Having my daughter has really inspired me to find what I love and to be better at it. Also being on maternity leave and being away from a job that was unfulfilling has given my brain the space it needs to be inventive and creative. Since February I have been on the look out for and in contact with smaller boutiques that I hoped would house my work. I’ve been successful so far and my pieces will be in their 6th store by next week! Along with that I have been doing a few local markets and macramé workshops. Meeting other local artists and artisans has been so rewarding! Seeing other moms kick butt and getting things done has been extra motivating as well! However, teaching my craft has by far been the most fulfilling for me! I have only done a couple so far but the reward is far greater than I ever expected! I have always loved to teach and although I’m still finding ways to be better, it’s been so amazing and the response from these women (so far just the ladies have joined) has been immensely satisfying!
I hope that I can continue to grow both as a person and an artist while I do this! I’m having a blast doing it!

$5 Picture Ledges

***Never Miss A Post- Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and BlogLovin***

Hey guys!  Hope your week is going great!  I’m back today with a really inexpensive and easy project for your weekend!  If you are new to building this is the perfect place to start.  I actually posted about these Ana White picture ledges a few years ago but I’ve made so many over the years that I thought they deserved a new updated post.  So they are actually picture ledges but I’m using these ones for books and can you believe they cost me $5 for all 3 combined!!!  Insane!  Wanna see them?

This simple DIY was only $5 for all 3 shelves!!  Find out how to make them on the blog.

They’re super versatile.  You can use them for books like I did with these, pictures, even storage.  I have a few in my garage.  I keep all my screws in mason jars on a picture ledge over my work bench and I have a few more that hold all of my spray paint.  You definitely NEEEEEEEEED some of these in your life haha.  So let’s get on to making them.

Supplies:

  • 1x4x8-1
  • 1x3x8-1
  • 1x2x8-1
  • 2″ screws
  • Brad nailer and 2″ brad nails
  • Glue
  • Countersink Bit

Step 1:

Cut all of your wood.  I wanted my shelves to be 30″ across.  Each shelf is made from 30″ of 1×4, 1×3, and 1×2.

IMG_3807

Step 2:

Figure out what part of the wood will look the best.  I tend to just hide the uglier sides of the boards.  You will need to use a countersink bit here because you don’t want the screws sticking out against your wall.  That’s this guy…

IMG_3808

IMG_3809

Step 3:

Screw through the bottom of the 1×4 into the 1×3 using glue and 2″ screws.

IMG_3810

Step 4:

At this point I like to sand everything down.  It gets a little tricky once you put the front on.  You’re almost done.  Now just use your brad nailer and glue to attach the front 1×2.  If all you have is a drill, no problem!  You can always attach the front the same way you did the back.  Just use some wood filler when you’re done and nobody will be the wiser!

IMG_3811

Now all that’s left to do is paint or stain it and hang it up!  I use 4″ screws through the back making sure I’m going right into studs to hang them up.  Once you fill them with whatever you choose nobody will ever even see the screws.

IMG_3982

I love them so much!  I hung them low enough that my girls can reach the bottom two shelves on their own.  And I spy a little bit of the Wall Mount Doll House!

IMG_3981

You can switch these up so many ways to accommodate what you want them for.  You can leave the front off, use the 1×3 as the back and the 1×4 as the shelf to you can fit something a little deeper, maybe use a 1×5 (Home Depot has them now, woohoo!) as the shelf although I’ve never done one that wide.  There are tons of uses!  I hope you try some for yourselves and like I said they are a great first project!  If you make this or any of my other projects I would love to see so just tag me and use the #simplylovelylumber on social media!  Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow for our second Simply Lovely Lumber Weekly Giveaway!
