Giving New Look To An Old Chair

- Home Decor
 We love our new bedroom! And the room divider is a great solution! The bed area of the room is always nice and tidy and the other half is the closet and ironing part! Really helpful!

 I made some small changes in the room lately. You know what i used ? Sheets. When we bought the bedding, we also bought a pair of sheets. I used the pillow cases to decorate the bed, as you see in the photo above.  One sheet is with flowers and the other with stripes. I used the one with the stripes to make covers for a pillow on the bed and make new covers for the pillows of a chair we have in the room.
 The chair had red covers, from our previous home.
 I wrapped the sheet around the pillows and folded it around each one, like wrapping a present. I hand stitched the sheet on the pillow, to keep it in place.

 As simple and fast as that we have a new chair!

 I used another piece of the sheet to cover a pillow for our bed. I wrapped the sheet around it and cut a piece of sheet to wrap it in the middle, so as it looks like a bow.

 There are some more things to do in our room! I will use the sheet with the flowers for them! I plan on using it as curtain! We will see how that turns out!

 Take care!

Framed Dried Flower

- Home Decor
 I am not a romantic person, neither is my loved one. And i do not keep souvenirs, from anything. But this one was special! On our wedding day, when we returned home, my baby had a beautiful rose bouquet and two wine glasses waiting for us! And that was more than a surprise for me! I thought i should keep that bouquet, or a part of it. At first i considered cutting the flowers and placing them in a picture frame, but i was not excited with the result. So , i took them apart and with the rose petals i created a large 3d flower. Here are the flowers and the frame i used.

 I removed the glass from the frame. I used it as a cadre. I started by drawing a circle on the cardboard , to use as a guide.
 I applied white glue around the circle and started placing the petals. I used nothing but white glue for all the petals.

 My first souvenir is ready!!!!!!! Have a great month everybody!!!!!!

Red table lamp

- IKEA Hack, Lamps
 Remember that japanese style lamp i had made?

 You can forget it! It had a small accident! It is now broken! I wanted from a while now to make a new one and the time came! I searched around the house for inspiration! And i found it in two Ikea candle holders.

 I used the tall one as the base and the round one as the lamp hat. I started by gluing them together with hot glue.

 I used about 4 meters of red satin ribbon, 4cm wide, and about 1 meter of red lace, also 4cm wide. I started weaving the ribbon through the lamp hat. I used the same lamp shower i had in the japanese lamp and placed in the round candle holder.
