Today I’m sharing a few pics from 3 recent DIY projects I created for architecture and design blog Decoist. The photo shoots were a blast to stage, and each project took on an ’80s vibe! The first: a series of mirror styling ideas that prove you can’t go wrong when tropical greenery is reflected in the glass…
Check out my Decoist post on modern mirror display ideas for all the details, including a hanging mirror DIY project inspired by this MyDubio tutorial (and pictured in the montage at the bottom of today’s post).
Next up: a monochromatic painting in shades of teal. Yes, what you see below is a canvas featuring an ombre progression of teal paint:
Teal has definitely made a comeback, although some of us have loved it since the ’80s. ; – ) I should have saved the black poster board pictured in the next image–it was used to protect the surface of my table while I created the teal canvas. Sometimes my favorite parts of DIY projects are the scraps of materials and dabs of paint left behind!
Today’s final DIY project: a round shelf made from quilting hoops and inexpensive craft wood. No drilling or sawing required! This is an easy project that can be created in a short amount of time, and the payoff is big.
Plus, painting the edge of the shelf with the color of your choice really brings this project to life (can you tell I’m a bit obsessed with teal?). Keep in mind that the shelf is very lightweight, so it shouldn’t hold stocky items. You can see the finished product in the montage at the bottom of the post, and be sure to check out the full tutorial on Decoist.
And now…a few more snapshots of the DIY fun:
Thanks for letting me share my latest DIY endeavors. Stay tuned for two original Mirror80 DIY creations in the weeks ahead!
