DIY Friday: Apartment Edition

Happy Friday, friends!! I am so happy to be home. New York was amazingly fun, and we saw a LOT of really awesome things, plus we got to hang out with Nick's bff, Max. You can expect a post about this later today complete with plenty of pictures :) 

This week's DIY is MORE frames, mostly. I am obsessed, I think? Kim and I have one in the works as we speak, actually. I bought a pretty awesome, ornate, gold mirror at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago that we plan on taping off and painting an awesome teal/red/bright color and hanging in our living room. 

These are some more ideas that I found this week:

1. Fabric covered styrofoam squares. This seems so easy and... duh? Why wouldn't
I do this? I'd like it in some brighter colors since we have white walls, but I am pretty
sure we could find some sweet fabric. 

2. This just seems obvious to me. Unfortunately, I don't have one of these hooks in my apartment,
but I am tempted to install one just for this purpose.  

3. I feel like I couldn't pull this off as well as this picture, but
I think it looks really feminine and pretty.

4. Again, with the frames. I just love this look. I wish my room were big enough for a dresser!! 

OMG. That last one reminded me that I still have not done a tour of my apartment on the blog!
I promise to get this done soon! It's not much to look at though, honestly. ;)

Happy Friday! <3

  5. Hubby and I both cracked up at the drunk octopus. We don't have one of those hooks, and we're moving soon... but the moment we buy a house I'm buying one of those hooks! It'll make me laugh every single day, I'm sure of it!

    Thanks for sharing, I'm still giggling =)
