2 Weeks of DIY-ing

My boyfriend is gone till next Sunday.
That means I need to get my serious crafting on & decorate this house!
I just need to get it done!
I just spent the last 3 hours looking at DIY tutorials, interior design blogs, etc.
& I found some freaking awesome stuff.
You all need to check out every single one of these projects
Because they are on some freaking awesome blogs!!!
Anyway, here are the different things I want to do before he's back...

Restoration Hardware Knockoff Dining Room Table
& reupholster/paint dining room chairs with turquoise lattice fabric & cream paint

Lyrics ombre art print... just gotta figure out what song...
Most likely for in our room (lots of blank wall space to work with)

I love this, must have these for our dining room!
They'll match the gold chevron pillows in the living room :)

This would be perfect for our entryway wall but in lighter turquoise & lime green.

I love the chalkboard idea to write messages
& the nailhead trim around the push pin board is such a cute idea!
I want this in our kitchen to clear up the clutter on the counters!

I fell in love with moss at the wedding I worked at last weekend...
Today while walking Winnie I had the idea of making a C & an N
and then putting them on each side of some large artwork for over our TV

I haven't decided yet where I want this...
It will either be in the living room & be turquoise, tan & lime green
Or in the bedroom & be navy blue, light blue & silver.
Must find perfect spot for it.

I've already started on one project.
I wanted to start on more but my Adobe Illustrator tutorial is finished :(
And I need Illustrator to complete them.
I might have to make some trips down to SCAD to use the library there...
But anyway, my first project is a simple wall art print for our living room
that says "Home is Where the Heart is."
It's ombre, with a bow & arrow... are you intrigued yet?
Pictures to come as soon as I get it printed!!!!!
Now I am off to the fabric store, Home Depot & Michaels.
Just gotta figure out which project to tackle first...

great roundup! I've been dying to try a song lyric canvas since seeing it in Molly Simm's home in a magazine a few years ago - I'm just not sure I have the patience for it! Lol. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

All these projects are great! I bet they will turn out great! I've done moss letters before and they were super simple but very pretty.
