This was inspired by the many vine pieces I have seen around the web lately. From Houzz, framed branches on Curbly and a simple octagon from A Wood Railing.
What you need:
- Liquid Nails
- Vine/branches of choice – I used these from World Market (mine don’t have the flowers)
- Weights – small ones as you do not want to break your vines. I used baby shoes, toys, etc
- Toothpicks – for liquid nails application
- Cotton buds – for clean up of any mess you make
I used some old canvases I had laying around and painted those brown with a black border to act as the frame.
Lay your vines on the canvases to figure out where you want to position them.
Work on your layout
Once you know how your layout will work – start applying liquid nails to one of the vines by putting the glue under the seed/knobs/round sections. Liquid nails takes some time to dry so I used weights to secure them as I moved onto the next one.
It will take about 20 mins to completely dry
Happy DIY Art

I made these in a span of a couple of days a few weeks ago. The plan is to have them on Etsy before the holidays fully hit. I will add the link this weekend.
These will be $20-30.00 depending on the pattern picked, feel free to email me if you want to put some orders in.
Happy weekend everyone!

I found this gem for $40.00 on Craigslist. It was in great shape, minimal damage that could not be fixed. After a major cleaning and heavy sanding on the top (it was laminate) I got to painting.
This was inspired by my post here. I used Killz primer, Rustoleum Satin Black and Rustoleum Bauhaus Gold.
- One coat of paint
Lined drawers (I hate contact paper :/)
- With the headboard
Instructions on how I made the headboard are here.
Thanks to Remodelholic for the feature!

My trip to Green Bay was a delight when I found this fabric. I bought as much as I could and may need to order much more as I have so many ideas to work with.
I have never used a pattern before and decided to give this a shot for a more polished look. I am happy with the results.
Main Packer logo fabric with the alternates I got from Joannes to match
Fabric cuts with the Simplicity pattern
Outside and inside pieces (2 of each)
Inside of the finished bag - the sides should have been sewn but I didnt realize that till I finished...no shocker
I will be back with some coin purses and make-up bags

This literally took 10 minutes to put together. I got two sizes of links, one for the neck and the other for the suspended links

This is another Kitenge re-do. I went with a skirt and will be figuring out how to do the top sometime soon. I used the instructions from Burdastyle: Here
Pieces - I used a blue strip for the waist band
Hem details - I left the original design

This is another plan I got from Ana at Knock off Wood. It was listed on my upcoming projects list which I am slowly chipping away.
Staining - I really hate this process - but its necessary to get the results I want
Details of the finish
With random items - I still need to get lighting for this table
I wasn’t an immediate fan when I finished this because I would have loved it about 5 inches taller. It’s grown on me but I am still tempted to make another with adjusted dimensions from Ana’s plan.
That’s it! What are you building???
