Bow Frame DIY

I’m a fan of gallery walls in home decor.  I think it just brings out so much personality to your room.  I recently added a gallery wall to my office full of fun pictures and sayings that would motivate and inspire me while I worked.  I needed something that would add a bit of texture and depth to the wall so I created this DIY and wanted to share with you all the very simple steps of this super easy DIY.


Wood Frame – $3.99
Scrapbook Paper – $0.50
Paper Bow Kit – $4.99 (you can make 12 bows with this kit)
Gold Spray Paint

Step 1: Spray paint your frame to the color of your choosing.


Step 2: After the paint is dry, cut the scrapbook paper to the size of your frame, add .5 – 1 inch wider than the opening.

Step 3: Glue or tape the paper to the back of the frame

Step 4: Make your paper bow

Step 5: Glue or tape your bow to the scrapbook paper

Step 6: Hang up your frame (I used these Removable Mounting Squares) and admire your work!

So simple right? Let me know if you make one, I’d love to see how yours turned out!

Gold Plated

One of my favorite things to look at are glamorous interiors and how to incorporate it in my own home.  I’ve been looking at table settings as I would like to have a small dinner party at our home and these pictures I found (pinned) are so pretty!







Don’t you love this last image with the stripe napkin?!  I currently have plates with a gold rims and was searching around for some cute appetizer plates that would layer well with them.  I found these and they are all affordable and 30% off this week.  I can’t seem to decide which one I like the most!  Which one do you think I should choose?

These plates layered on top of my gold rimmed plates (similar to these) with a stripe or chevron print napkin and gold flatware would be perfect.  I also love flecks of gold glitter, flowers and candles on the table.  I know I don’t typically post about interiors but I get inspired by so many things.  Interior blogs are some of my favorite things to read and just as clothing can be styled, interiors are the same way.  Seeing print mixing on a person or on a table gives me new ideas.

I forgot about this outfit I wore and seeing the table setting reminded me to mix the two together again.

blueHappy week and hope your inspired as well.
