We chose a cool bohemian print for this eye-popping table lamp. But before we applied to the shade, we added a handful of quirky floral appliqués. Here’s how: cut leaves and flowers from coordinating fabric, back them with fusible web, and iron them on according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
A touch of color was all it took to instantly transform this group of scatter frames from new to well-worn. To create the look, apply acrylic paint with a stiff brush, and then wipe it away with a paper towel. The color will cling to the nooks and crannies while still allowing plenty of the original white to show through.
In this case, the “P” stands for pearls. We hot glued hundreds of pearly beads (in a variety of sizes) to an oversized wooden letter to create this lovely monogram art. You can do this look with beads of any color—just be sure to paint the letter to match before you begin.
White on white means a very good night, according to this sweet personalized sign. The base is a painted burlap canvas . We painted the curly-q wooden letters to match, and then we glued them into place. A length of burlap ribbon serves as the hanger, and we were done!
We recreated the oh-wow factor of vintage-style marquee letters by hot gluing strips of lightweight matte board (Art Department) to the edges of our big wooden letters. Then we painted, drilled the appropriate holes, popped in some globe lights (Wedding Department), and let the show begin! Tip: We aged our letters with metallic paint and silver leaf.
