Framed Puzzle

Posted on

Our family gift for Christmas from my In-Laws was a beautiful 2000 piece puzzle.  We spent the next two weeks working on it, some days non-stop!  After all that effort and time, there was no way it was going back in the box.  It was going to be framed!

We had a piece of ply wood cut just slightly larger than the picture, then used some puzzle glue to glue the pieces in place on top of the plywood board.  No wanting to buy a frame and glass, I used a frame from a picture I no longer liked.  The frame, unfortunately was too big.  After pondering for a bit, (and honestly the solution should have been instantaneous, but wasn’t!  It’s so embarrassing.) I thought of adding trim to the frame to cover the gaps.

Once my brain started functioning again, it also occurred to me that trim could be added to any frame you wanted to repaint.  Some frames have wimpy moulding for the picture it holds, so adding trim would make the frame look more substantial.  Brilliant I tell you!

Here is the picture before the trim was added. You can see on the left and right where the gaps are.

trim being glued

Went to Lowes, and for $10.00, bought two pieces of small decorative trim. I used silicon adhesive to attached the wood to the glass and frame.

The plan was to paint it white and leave it all white. But after several coats, It just look flat and boring.  I ended up sanding it a bit and adding some walnut stain to it.  Much happier now. 😀

The sun wouldn’t let me take a good picture (yes, it is the sun’s fault, not the operator of the camera.), but here is the finished picture. Now that the picture is hung with anchors and screws, I think I’m moving it to another location in the house. Thank goodness I’m an expert spackle-er!

Fireplace Backsplash Updated

Posted on

Remember when I did the fireplace backsplash?  I updated it a bit.

I have a lot of wood wall planks left over from when I went crazy and bought all I could find because it was on clearance for $3.50.  I bought two different styles.  The planks I used in my son’s bathroom were plain tongue and groove, but I also purchased a couple of packages of the wide beadboard looking planks.

I add the beadboard planks to the fireplace backsplash.  (Nothing stays the same in my house for very long.  It’s a sickness.)

This DIY project was quick and simple! A little extra character for very little money.

This is a picture of the fireplace before and after the first time I did it.

fireplace before

Here’s the now “Before”.

fireplace beadboard taped

I cut the planks to size, then added the first piece to the middle of the fireplace. That way the planks would end at the same place on both sides.  The boards were trimmed length-wise with a circular saw.  I used a nail gun to attach the wood planks to the wall. I just love that thing!

The after After! Not a huge difference, but  it looks more finished now. It took one package of wood planks, so it cost only $3.50!  Gotta love that!

Model Home Decorating Ideas

Posted on

One of my most favorite ways to get decorating ideas is to go model home hopping.  That means I take my camera and my BFF and we find all the new construction model homes and take a tour.

The best thing to do, if you model home hop, is to be honest with the sales person there.  Don’t pretend to be a potential home buyer.  It’s a waste of their time.  Tell them you are just out looking at model homes for fun and they will leave you alone.  They are actually used to people looking a model homes for decorating ideas.

Here are some pictures I snapped yesterday.  Now I have even more ideas running through my head! 😉

The butler’s pantry in this home is also a bar area.

bathroom cabinet color

I took this picture because I liked the color of the cabinet. Notice the plain, boring mirror on the wall! Tisk Tisk! 🙂

bedroom ceiling

I don’t need to say anything about this photo, but I will… Look at that ceiling!!! Love it.

bedroom wallpaper

The wall behind the bed is covered in wall paper. Makes a great accent wall!

dining room windows

Look at the arched windows in this photo.

dining room

The ceiling in this photo is covered in wallpaper. The back wall is painted a chocolate brown. I’m not a fan of dining rooms, but this is a pretty space.

This builder did frame out the mirror. Do you see how they added an extra horizontal board?

A cute kitchen eating area.

Beamed ceilings! Ahhh… someday.

red bedroom

In this bedroom, board and batten was used as a headboard effect. This has my head spinning with ideas!

staircase

Beautiful staircase. The dark wood against the white! Love.

I took this picture because I like the hallway floor. Although the different levels could be dangerous in the dark! (If you’re me!)

Love this lighting over the kitchen table.

These gorgeous lights are hanging over a kitchen island. I wish I would have asked where they came from.

DIY Tiled Planter Box

Posted on

finished closeupWhat do you do with left over wood?  You make a planter box.  Then you let the planter box sit on your porch for a couple of months, completely out of mind.  Next you go to Habitat Restore and discover sheets of stone tile for only $2.50 and buy it just because it’s only $2.50.  After that, it dawns on you to add the tile to the planter box you just remembered you forgot, and then get excited to have a new project to work on.

This is how I operate.  Not always cohesive.  Not always with a plan.  Somehow it works out. 😉

This planter/flower box cost less than $10.00.  I had the wood already.  I only bought the tile and the stencil.  Cheap Cheap Cheap.

And just a note:  My hope in sharing projects and ideas with you is to inspire you to try something new.  I’m not an expert at this crafting/DIY stuff.  I’m just a girl whose mind is always turning and thinking, and for whatever reason, thinks she can do what she sets her mind to.  I believe you can too.  😀

wood planks2

Left over wood I had. I can’t remember how I decided on the size, but it must have been based on how much wood I had. I can’t be responsible for what I forget. LOL

box together2

The finished box. Very easy. No mitering.

box plain

Apparently I painted it white. Wish I could remember what the original plan was! 😉

box of tile

I bought the whole box of tile. It came four sheets to a box. The piece you see in the picture is actually folded in half.  A sheet and a half was enough to cover the whole box.

beginning tiling

I cut off rows of tile. The tile came pretty much butted against each other so I didn’t have to pull off one piece at a time to get them close. That made me happy because I didn’t want to mess with grout.

tiling2

Moving a long. Occasionally I had to pull off some individual pieces and trade it with a smaller or larger piece to make the row end neatly at the sides.

box tiled

I used silicon adhesive to adhere the tile to the wood. I would suggest something stronger though. The tile is not falling off, but I could pull it off if I wanted to. I just used what I had.

stencil

I picked up this template at Hobby Lobby.

finished closeup2

I used black acrylic craft paint to “stencil” with. Since I haven’t stenciled much before, I didn’t have the proper brush. I just gave an old, small paint brush a trim and made the bristles shorter. I worked pretty well for “pouncing”.

finished closeup

I need to get more flowers (hydrangea?). I picked these up at Michaels, but my mind couldn’t remember how big the box was. But you get the picture.
Also, I added trim to the top of the box and painted it white, to give it a finished look. I didn’t take a picture of that though. I used the trim left over from my latest Bathroom Makeover.

Lego Loco

Posted on

In the mist of the New Year’s “I want to throw everything out and get organized mode, I came across bins of Legos.  Big bins.  Oodles and oodles of money spent bins.

My son is in high school now and hasn’t played with them in years.  He was obsessed with Legos when he was little.  It’s his childhood in those bins.  I  can’t bear to throw them away or give them away.  Just for fun, I Googled “Lego ideas for home decor”.  There’s actually stuff!  You gotta take a look!

I have a feeling I won’t be using Legos as accessories in my home.  But I’m thinking what a totally awesome Grandma I will be when I pull out this ginormous bin of Legos for my grandchildren to play with.  Yep!  I’m totally going to be the way cool favorite Grandma! 😉  And even better, with age comes wisdom (or so I heard) – so I will know to ALWAYS wear shoes when Legos are on the floor!

Winter Blues Will Lose

Posted on

I’m in a battle with the Winter Blues. In an attempt to win this nagging fight, I’m trying to think happy thoughts, smile like the sun is shining and keep my mind and body busy.   Sadly, the Blues have had a chance to stomp on me a few times.  Like Tom Cruise to a couch.  Without the happy dance.

A friend of mine sent me a Daily Inspiration that said, “During the short days of winter, we see less of the sun, but it hasn’t disappeared. The earth has moved, but the sun is still shining bright and clear.”  So I will also remember that the sun is always shining, even when I can’t see it.

If you, too, are a victim of the Winter Blues, maybe these pictures will inspire you to add some happy colors to your winter world.  If nothing else, perhaps it will just make you smile for a moment.

I’m thinking all the doors in my house will be painted these cheery colors shown in the first picture.  What do ya think?  Hubby might wonder what the heck happened to his wife while he was at work, but you know I will be smiling when I watch the expression on his face.  Yep, still a hoot!  Take that Winter Blues! 😉

Personalized Entryway Organization

Posted on

A year and a half ago, I created this entryway at the back door in an attempt to have some sort of organization and control over coats and backpacks. It works sometimes. Sometimes not so much. But now the wall has everyone’s initials attached to their designated space, so I am positive this personalized touch will have everyone hanging up their coats with a great big smile on their face.  Right?  Or not.

But at least it looks cute. 😉

Some coats are hanging here, others are everywhere else.

Found these metal initials at Hobby Lobby. I got them 1/2 off that price!

Happy is in the House

Posted on

I started out 2012 with the blog name Ode to my Abode.  This past year I changed it to House of 34.  I wanted to share more than just DIY projects.  House of 34 is about sharing ideas and experiences, laughing and making fun of myself (and occasionally others, all with love of course), as well as DIY Projects.  My goal in writing about my DIY projects, though, is to encourage you to try new things yourself.  I’m not an expert at anything.  But for reasons not yet known, 😉 I’m not afraid to try anything either.  I believe if you have an idea in your head, you can do it.

Thanks for all your support!  Blogging has been a wonderful experience.  I have “met” some pretty awesome people in cyberspace! 😀  House of 34 is a happier place with all of you in it.

Thought I would share some of the top posts from 2012.  Thank you again!!

“Magical” Christmas Mantel – update

Posted on

Remember my “Magical” Christmas Mantel post where I said I redid the mantel three times before I was happy with it?  Well, it’s four times now.  It’s a sickness.  I can’t help myself. 😉  THIS is the final mantel.

Key Fob Tutorial

Posted on

key fob rowsI’m sure you all have seen key fobs.  They are those cool wrist straps you attach your keys to.  Do you know how easy and inexpensive they are to make?

I will show you in just a sec…

I buy the webbing and key fob hardware from sellers on Etsy.  That is the only place I have ever seen supplies.  (Which is perfectly ok ‘cuz I love Etsy!)  The fabric used is simple cotton/quilter’s fabric.  You could use ribbon as well, but I prefer fabric.

FYI – they make fabulous Christmas gifts for teachers, school faculty and bus drivers.  You can use them as stocking stuffers, gift exchanges or even an attach one to a bow on top of a present.  (I have made the ones below to sell at a Christmas open house a friend is having.)

webbing cutting2

Cut the webbing 10 inches

10 inch strip

Cuts strips of cotton fabric 2 inches wide by 10 inches long

iron in half

Fold in half and press with an iron lightly to make a crease.

folding edges

Unfold and bring both side to the center crease. Iron flat.

stitch witch

Stitch Witchery

stitch witch 2

Tear or cut Stitch Witchery the length of webbing.

ironing fabric to strap

Place fabric strip (folded side down) on top of Stitch Witchery and iron.

sewing fabric

Sew a straight line down each side of the fabric about 1/8 inch in for the side of the fabric.  I used clear thread so I didn’t have to keep switching thread color.

fray check

Fold the key fob in half and sew the short end together. This doesn’t need to be all the way across, just enough to hold it together.
I use Fray Check on the ends of the webbing and the fabric and about 1/4 inch down the sides of the key fob. Not a necessary step, but it prevents the material from fraying.

pliers

Use pliers to pinch the key fob hardware shut. Make sure you wrap a towel or some sort of material around the pliers or around the end of the key fob to prevent scratches or dents.

key fob finished sample

The finished product.

key fobs circle

All of these, and then some, were made for around $25.00.  😀

Wood Shim Chrismas Star

Posted on

This weekend was spend decorating inside and outside for Christmas.  I did the inside, Hubby did the outside.  And we’re done!  Woohoo!  I needed something for the front door, so in the mist of putting up the tree and decorating the rest of the house, I had an idea for a door ornament/wreath.

I had wood shims left over from who knows what. (Sometimes I wonder why I have some of the things I have!)  I tried for a while to make the “perfect” shaped star, but it kept coming out lop-sided!  Finally it dawned on me that the sides all need to be the same angle.  So after I glued the first two V-shaped pieces together, I stacked the next two shims on top of that “V” to get the exact same shape/angle.  When I had five “V” shapes that were exactly the same, then I glued them all together.  (I hope that made sense.)  Use wood glue.  Hot glue does not hold it together well.

My first thought was to wrap the tinsel around the star, but I ran out before it was covered.

Music Sheet Christmas Trees

Posted on

Happy Friday!

I’m on a kick this year with handmade Christmas trees.  I can’t stop making them.  I’m sure you have seen music sheet Christmas trees on Pinterest.  I was lucky enough to win a vintage music sheet give-a-away from The Modage Cottage.  The music sheets are old and beautifully discolored.  Absolutely lovely!!  Once my package arrived in the mail, I knew what I was going to do with them.

Here’s how I made the trees…

sheet music

This is only SOME of the sheets of music I received. I have oodles left!

punch

I used a 2 inch scalloped paper punch.

paper punched

Punch many, many pieces.

paper with cuts

At each scallop, cut half way up.

rolled up

Roll the paper around a pencil (or crochet hook!) to give the paper a curl.

first paper

I used both paper mache cones and Styrofoam cones. Either one will work. Using a glue gun, start at the bottom and work your way around. Overlap the previous square a bit.

almost finished

When you get closer to the top, it helps to cut the squares in half. This allows the paper to wrap around the smaller part of the cone easier.

trees and deers

Here they are!  I did three, in various sizes. Two of the cones where paper mache, and one was Styrofoam.

close up base

I picked up the wood bases last month at the Metrolina Antique Show here in Charlotte. $2.00 each!!  I believe they were wood feet to a couch or chair.

This project was super easy to do and probably one of my favorite Christmas craft project I’ve done in a long time. Thank you, Kristen, for the vintage music sheets!

Random Acts of Kindness… I witnessed an act of kindness last week, and I’m still thinking about it.  My Hubby and I were walking in to the grocery store and there was a lady from Salvation Army ringing her bell for donations out in the cold.  The man walking ahead of us not only put some money in the bucket, he proceeded to ask her if he could buy her a cup of coffee, from the Starbucks inside, to help keep her warm.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward,

safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.

“Magical” Christmas Mantel

Posted on

Today I have been getting out Christmas decorations while listening to Trans-Siberian orchestra (turned up quite loudly).  It’s funny how something as simple and innocent as getting out boxes of garland and ornaments can leave ones house upside down!  Did you know that even fake garland leaves needles in every nook and corner of your house.  It’s true.  Ask my vacuum.

Confession… I did my mantel three times.  I liked it, then I had a different idea.  I liked that, then I had a brain storm.  It’s exhausting being around me.  My husband goes to work just to get some rest. 😉

Anywhoo, here is the finished mantel…  whatcha think?

The ornaments are strung together with fishing line.

Each string has 5 ornaments tied on. I used clear push pins to attach the strings to the top of the mantel backsplash. The ornaments look like they are floating in air!

When my daughter came home from school and saw the mantel, she said it looked “magical”.  My job here is done. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s a small world!

My friend Karen invited me to go to a sale one of her friends was having at a neighboring clubhouse, literally around the corner.  Turns out two bloggers were the ones putting on the sale.  They were getting rid of some stuff, wanting to simplify and declutter their homes.  “It’s better than a yard sale, but it’s not as new as retail” is how one of the sellers described the sale.

Well guess what?  The bloggers were Angela from Button Bird Designs and Myquillyn from The Nester.  How cool is that??  I thought so!

When we arrived, the line was out the door.  The clubhouse was so packed, you could barely move.  Everyone had their arms full of great stuff.  And the best part?  A portion of the proceeds are going towards Compassion International, a non Profit Christian child advocacy ministry.  How Awesome!

https://i1.wp.com/www.chattingatthesky.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Picture-241.pngAnother nice surprise was meeting the author of Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P. Freeman, whose sister happens to be The Nester.  Emily was absolutely lovely and I walked away with her book she so graciously autographed for me.

It IS a small world.  You just never know who you will meet.  Bloggers/people you admire, who are out there, somewhere in the world, may turn out to be your neighbor! 😉

DIY Twine Christmas Trees

Posted on

I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet, but I’m already making/thinking Christmas decorations.  Tis the Season ya know!

Making Christmas trees is one of the easiest projects to do.  Last year I made these trees from Styrofoam and yarn.

This year I want to add some “natural” looking decorations.  I had twine.  I had Mod Podge.  I did not have Styrofoam trees.  Below you can see my “rough” tree form.  I use plastic sheets I bought for some reason that is no longer in my memory.  It’s the stuff used to make crafts with yarn and a needle.  Anyway, I folded it in a cone shape and used duct tape to hold it together.  Not pretty, but it worked.

My supplies. I had all these things already so technically, it was a “free” project. 😀

I started at the top of the cone, using a paperclip to keep the twine in place. (Yes, that is paint on my hand. Earlier that day I painted my parents garage.)

Still going. It really doesn’t take long at all. I wanted to keep the twine close together, but you can leave gaps if you prefer that look.

When I got to the end, I used another paperclip to hold the twine in place at the bottom.

I placed the tree on top of a glass to glue. That way I can spin the cone around without getting messy with glue.

Using a sponge brush, I “painted” the cone with Mod Podge.

I really put the glue on thick, then left it overnight to dry. Once try, I pried it away from the plastic cone form. And that’s it. I made another tree the same size, and one larger using a larger form.

They look great grouped together. There’s a lot you can add to these. Before the glue dries, you can add glitter or snow flakes. Glue small ornaments, buttons, or add ribbon. Options are endless.

The twine was purchased at Lowes awhile ago. I made these from the same spool and have oodles of twine left. Oooh the possibilities!

DIY Hand Painted Wood Sign

Posted on

Happy Friday!

Last weekend, a couple of my girl friends and I went to a big antique show.  It was so exciting!!  (I will have to do a blog on the crazy things I picked up.)  Towards the end of the day, we came across these cool wood doors.  Piles of them.  For only $2.00 each!  I picked up eight of them without having an idea what I was going to do with them.  (That happens a lot!)

One of my friends suggested making hand painted wood signs for the Holidays.  Here’s how I did it.

I printed out the words I wanted to use.  Not having tracing paper, I just took a regular pencil and scribbled on the back side of the letters.  Then I traced the outline of the letters and the pencil mark transferred to the wood door.  Woohoo!

Now the tricky part for me was filling in the letters.  I only had paint and a paint brush, reading glasses and one working eye!  Depth perception is not my strong point!  It took me FOREVER to paint the letters.  Either I thought I was touching the wood with my paint brush and wasn’t or I aimed for the outlines and completely missed.  If it wasn’t so frustrating, it would have been comical!  I would strongly suggest a paint pen.  I didn’t have one.  And two working eyes would be helpful too. 😉

I should mention that before I painted the letters, I gave the center section a coat of off-white chalk paint.  (I still didn’t know what design I was doing at this point.)  After the letters were painted on, I painted the rest of the front with the chalk paint.  Then I taped off diagonals lines with blue tape and painted them red.  After the red paint dried, I sanded everything to distress it a bit then I applied a light-colored wax to seal it and age the off-white paint a little more.

And here it is… This House Believes.  And this house also believes you can Do-It-Yourself.  Had to throw that in! 😉  Just FYI… Doors in many different shapes and sizes can be found at your local Habitat Restore.  Some used, some new, and they cost very little.

I’m going to put eye hooks in the top edge of the sign and use either ribbon or a small chain to hang it outside the front door.  Maybe embellish it a bit with Christmas picks or decorations.

This was really an easy project to do!  And the first Christmas thing I’ve done so far.  I love the Holidays!  Have you started to think about decorating for the Holidays yet?
