DIY Chic Wall Art & Polaroid Display | Home Decor | ANN LE

– Hey guys, how's it going? Welcome back to DIY Sunday.

Today's project we are going to be repurposing some old picture frames.

So if you have any old pictures frames in your home take that out, or go to your local thrift store.

So for this first methodand this first display, I really love it because it inspire me every morning and every night.

And when I look at it in the morning I think of starting fresh, starting new, starting with a blank canvas.

And then before I go to bed at night, I look at it and I justthink of dream big, you know? There's so many possibilities.

Just keep on dreaming.

And for the second display, it's really cute because if you do have Polaroid pictures or any photos, and you don't know what to do with them, this is a really fun and simple way on showcasing your pictures.

So let's get started with this.

Let's jump right into materials.

All you will need for this tutorial are some empty picture frames.

If you don't have any, check out your local thrift store.

They have some really inexpensive ones.

I also got mine from my local craft store.

Next you will need some paint primer, a paintbrush, and a colorpaint of your choice.

So let's start off withsome clean picture frames.

Lay these onto a flat surface.

And make sure to use some newspaper or something underneath to prevent any paint from spilling onto your floor.

Take out your primer spray, shake it well and go ahead and spray it along toall sides of the frame.

Now the reason whywe're using paint primer is because it will help yourpaint adhere to the surface.

Paint primer's also very helpful to use because it helps you achieve the vibrancy of color you're going for.

After you cover allsurfaces with your primer, let this set for one to two hours before moving on to the next step.

Now that the primer is dry and set, I'm going to take my paintbrush and paint along the sides of the frame.

You will probably need to paint up to two coats in order to cover up all the crevices andget your desired shade.

What I would suggest for you to do is while you wait in between coats, you can cover your paintbrushwith some plastic bag in order to save your paintbrush, and then once you're ready to paint on your next coat, take it out.

Now that the frames are set and dry, it is now time to hang them up.

I like to start off with the bigger frames then work my way to the smaller ones.

I usually hang the smaller frames around and surrounding the bigger frame.

For the lighter frames you can use a tack to pin onto the wall andthen hang your frames up.

For the bigger and heavier one, what I would suggest for you to use is a nail and hammer.

To hang up fun and cute photos, what I like to do with my empty frames is that I would cut off a string and then with two tacks I would pin them or hammer them onto the sides to hold up the string.

Lastly, I would take some clothing pins, clip them along the line, and then hang up my pictures.

Alrighty everyone, sothat is it for today.

If you do like this video, then don't forget to thumbsup to support this channel.

Also, let me know what a blank canvas or a blank frame means to you.

I already explained to youguys what it means to me, and I'd love to hearwhat your take on it is.

So, I will talk to you guys next week.

Bye.

fourth idea is much simpler compare to our first idea in this point.

and the last one is meant for those who can't burn more than $96 for a garment rack.

2.

Mix up the way you add plants to your home.

In addition to placing different plants on surfaces around your home,get creative with how you hang your plants.

the main takeaway isYou don't want to over water them though, because overwatering is worse than under watering.

Just pay attention to them and once they get dry(use your finger to check if the soil is moist) give them a drink of water.

Change up the containers you use,from watering cans to lightbulbs.

This one comes with a nice video tutorialunder 7 minutes you can replay at unlimited amount of timeuntil youtube shut down or delete it.

And aside from containers,you can use a variety of plants, especially tiny ones like this.

It will add little pops of colours in your interiorand absolutely fits most people bill.

3.

Clean off any residue, 2).

Sand everything down,3).

paint at least two coats with a foam roller,and 5) protect it.

4.

Add a few pieces of unconventional furniture.

DIY some simple stump side tables like this or get a speckled ceramic lamp or officiallynamed Hanne table lamp for $50.

5.

Repurpose boxes and crates for modularbookshelves and eye-popping storage displays.

For this idea, you pretty much only need SKOGSTA Box from IKEA ($9,99),, your favorite paint, and Stationery clamps or double tapeor Gorilla wood glue to finish the job.

Anything else ispretty much self explanatory.

Attach, stack and enjoy 6.

Line the insides of your shelves with patternedfabric or wallpaper.

You can use either cotton fabricor peel-and-stick wallpaper like this.

instruction:1.

Cut your fabric to the approximate size needed, leaving an inch on each side.

Coat your surface and the back side of your fabricwith the rubber cement and let it dry completely.

Starting with the middle of the fabric, placeit on the middle of the surface and smooth outwards with your hands(don't worry if you put it in the wrong place, you can peel it offand place it again if you desire).

2.

Once the fabric is smooth, use the X-Actoknife to trim the extra fabric off the sides.

8.

Make a few of your own decorative pillows.

DIY fluffy shag pillow and sparkly pillow.

for renters withsome sewing skill and the machine.

9.

Try a variety of hanging solutions,including tapes, command hooks, and strips.

Here are two different methods of hangingclocks or art without damaging your walls.

1.

Using painter tape from scotch blue, frog tape and Tesa.

(Tesa which is made in germany is my favorite).

Press it for 5 seconds andit will hug anything up to 1 kg of item.

as information, 3M's took a longtime.

around 30 seconds.

2.

This second trick using Tesa Hook and Looptape/velcro.

it will bind your hanging art, pictures orassembling photowalls or gallery with your walls without damage it.

10.

Use clothespins to put up an elegant displayof artwork.

Nothing is too complicated here.

If your drawing skill make you sad, you can print and slap your favorite instagrampictures on your wall.

Any stranger instagram photos will do finetoo.

Have you ever though that? 11.

Or mount your art with hangers.

12.

If you don’t want to lean your artworkdirectly on the floor, then prop it up on a stand.

This is a great trick for large artwork that may be too heavy to mount.

13.

Invest in rolling and/or movable furniture.

Mobile furniture offers a lot of versatility for short-term rentals.

You’ll be able to use the same table or cart around your home for multiple purposes.

You can also use this idea to create a shortend table, a medium cart, or a tall bookshelf in a varietyof widths and depths.

Your only limitations are the pre-cut wood(if you don't own your own tools) and plated slotted angle sizes available toyou.

14.

Sew, braid, or paint a few eye-catchingrugs.

One really cheap option is to make one outof a large drop cloth.

Dun dun dun duuuuuuunnnn! Insert a Floor Cloth.

A floor cloth is basically a reinforced piece of fabric that is sturdy and looks so great!No sewing DIY: 1.

Position your fusible webbing on the backof your fabric (paper side up) 2.

Iron on the paper side (don’t use steam!Just heat and pressure).

Wait until the fabric is completely cooleddown before you peel off the paper.

3.

Notice how the webbing is also on the foldthat I ironed.

You don’t want to miss that part!4.

Now iron your drop cloth right side down onto your fabric/webbing combo.

I am doing it right side down so that the thick edgedoesn’t leave a big gap between the 2 materials.

5.

and done Second idea is, sew this stuff according tovintage rivivals manual.

15.

Craft ladders for shelves or racks fora more striking look.

Or, purchase one to cut all the hustle andleg work.

16.

Easily install an inexpensive curtainwith fabric and a tension rod.

Learn how to find a simple and affordable window treamentfor your bedroom with white curtains with tie-backs here.

FYI, this white curtain is from IKEA and they sell it $29,99.

The total weight is 1.

70 kg and to hang it safely you need to buy a tensionrod around $7.

As you can see in this image, I wanted tosee how the tension rod held up before I hemmed the curtains into long cafecurtains.

So far So good.

It has been two weeks and the rod is ableto support the full weight of the curtains.

17.

Zero in on the small things, like theseDIY pineapple magnets.

First up, your plaster mix.

Add cold water to the dry mix until it reaches a nice creamy consistencyand then pour it into the mould to set.

if you don't have the patience of a saintI recommend using a pineapple ice cube tray -that way you can pour a dozen of these magnetsat once! After You've poured in the plaster,give the mould a few sharp taps to remove air bubbles and waitfor the plaster to harden.

After your pineapples have set pop them outof the mould and grab your spray paint!paint those little babies gold and wait from them to dry(it doesn't take long.

) Cut your magnetic tape to the width of yourpineapples, Peel off the adhesive backing and stick themonto the back! Finnally, you can get busy arranging your photoson your fridge! I've used mine with my mini polaroid instagramsnaps.

18.

Not only organize with trays, but decorateyour walls with them.

The best part of hanging your plates/traysis that you’ll have more storage spaceand you’ll also be able to access your trays more easily.

All you need is— and you are going to love this – a toothpaste.

Flip the piece around and dab some toothpaste onthe spot where the nail will go, then hold the piece against the wall exactlywhere you want to hang it.

Then push.

Hard.

Hard enough that the toothpaste will come off on the wall –THAT SPOT is where you put the nail.

After the nail is up you can wipe away thetoothpaste with a wet sponge.

Or not.

It’s toothpaste – won’t hurt anyone 19.

Opt for brighter washi tapes that maketape look less tacky.

Just info, you can Buy some neon-colored atwishywashi.

20.

Go all out with your bed’s headboard.

If you want to get real fancy, investing only $70 instead of $700,you can build your own geometric wooden headboard via theweathereddoor idea.

Or, try something as simple as outlining an imaginary headboard with twinkle lights.

Last,21.

For a luxurious look, opt in these removable and reusable wooden planks.

Natural Home Decorating Tips : Environmentally Safe Products for the Home

The biggest challenge in decorating your homeis finding out what really is good.

There are a number of products on the market thatare extremely toxic and in my mind should not be sold to the public.

Products that theyknow have formaldehyde and all these adhesives and glues are extremely toxic.

They are linkedto all kinds of cancers and personally I wouldn’t have them in my home.

Anything that is boundwith glues and stuff, those are the most toxic.

Paints and paint thinners are something youhave to be really careful about, and there are lots of choices on the market and that’swhat I’m going to do here today is show you the choices, the options you have to decorateyour home with, natural healthy supplies, materials.

We have everything from solid woolcarpet rugs, which are made out of all wool, we have flooring that is made from bamboo,we have flooring that is made from cork, we have throw rugs which I really encourage peopleto not have wall to wall carpeting in their home, to use natural floor rugs, throw rugs,like cecil, hemp, 100% cotton, organic cotton, silk, there’s linen, leather, there’sa number of options to use on your floor.

We have everything from water based paintsyou can use on your walls.

It’s not just brown and more brown, there’s blues, there’sgreens, there’s oranges, there’s reds, there’s yellows.

Every color in the spectrumyou need that is water based and healthy for you to use, you just have to go out and searchfor it.

There’s all glass tiles that are made from recycled glass, so, in helping theenvironment by being recycled, it’s also a beautiful product.

It’s being used twice,it’s not just something that stayed around one time, it’s being used twice and youcan incorporate that in, it’s all healthy, it’s solid glass.

Natural Home Decorating Tips : Recycled Tile for Natural Home Design

Now we’re going to talk a little bit aboutthe recycled products.

The terrazzo type countertop material is usually a ¼ inch, you can evenorder it thicker than the ¼ inch, ½ inch, and it does have to have underlayment so itdoesn’t crack or anything.

But it’s recycled glass, granite, and concrete mixture and it’scompressed together and it does have a mesh in it to hold it together so it’s reallystrong, I mean it’s just as strong as granite.

It’s a wonderful option, it’s beautiful,it looks like natural stone and you can put it anywhere, you can put it in a master bedroom,a master bathroom on the countertops, you can put it in an elegant kitchen on the island.

There’s a number of places this can go.

There’s I think 36 colors in this typicalbrand and there’s lots of other brands out there that make this kind of product.

There’salso the terra classics which are from recycled glass and they have a number of the… here’sthe typical natural colors that are from the earth, and then they’ve gone and expandedand added all the new colors, they’ve got some great colors, the citrine, aquamarine,peridot, sapphire, they even have like a purple sapphire which is a light lavender, and theseare colors, these are like decorator colors and they’re still in you know, you can usesomething like this recycled glass tile.

You can also use something like this one here,it’s a reconstituted concrete, paper, and fly ash in this one.

It’s solid, I’veactually personally not seen this one on counters yet, but with it coated with a sealer it’sbeautiful, it’s got a real smooth solid color to it, and it looks just like a firedclay tile without the ceramic on the top.

You would just have to seal it with a naturalclear sealer.

So that’s one of the other options there.
