Friday Faves – June 21

Happy Friday everyone!  I’ve been a bit busy with work and family stuff lately but I still had some time to peruse Pinterest and find some great inspiration images.  I’m hoping things will calm down in the next week so I can get going on another DIY project!

On a side note, I am having some trouble getting the links to open in new windows so if you click on one of the pics below, be sure to hit ‘back’ on your browser!

1. Belted Maxi Dress

I love the idea of jazzing up a maxi dress by adding a chunky belt.  I tried out this look today and I’m not even exaggerating when I say I’ve received no less than 10 compliments!  I try to remember to post a pic later!

2. Jewelry Storage

This is such a great idea for jewelry storage… cutlery trays!  The vertical spaces can hold necklaces while the horizontal space serves as a shelf for bracelets.  Plus you could paint them to match your room decor!

3. No Sew Bench Cushion

DIY bench cushions would definitely be much cheaper (and more customizable!) than buying something but until I actually take my sewing machine out of its box, it’s not going to happen.  This project has no sewing involved!  Just staple fabric to peg board (or plywood) with some foam!  The fabric can only be spot cleaned but it is gets too dirty you could always just replace it.  Great news for my ever changing room colour schemes!

4. Living Room Colour Combo

This living room is so pretty!  The greys and blues are so calming while the white is so fresh!

5. Tank Top Organization

I have so many tank tops and they aren’t exactly compact when folded in a drawer or on hangers in the closet.  Here’s a creative solution using a towel rack.

6. Console Styling

On my to-do list for the near future: get better at accessory styling.  First step: learn from this pic!  So simple but so a great impact!

Have a great weekend everyone!  I am out of town for work but I will try to get a post up during my travels!
