Believe it or not, I’m not the biggest DIY person around… but lately I’ve been wanting things for my apartment that are much too pricey, but happen to be very DIY-able.
I died over this rug when I saw it a few weeks ago! As you know, I’m a neon fanatic, so obviously I had to find a way to make it happen (it’s originally over $400). Sure enough, I found a cheap and easy way to make this rug possible…!
I used a Crate and Barrel striped runner, and simply painted both ending white stripes with neon acrylic (durable and wash proof) with a normal large brush. I used flouro pink and flouro red for the stripes. No need to use water with these, especially since you want a nice solid coating.
Wouldn’t this be rad for pillows too? Definitely makes a huge impact.
Not my usual illustration, but it certainly adds to my creative environment…!!! I’d love to see photos if you guys make it too.
When it comes to accessories, I like to keep things pretty simple. A great bag, colorful scarf, or a statement necklace usually does the trick. However, my main staple accessory is a watch (not that I’m ever on time anywhere).
I love how simple these two watches are! They’ve got just the right amount of statement to them. Plus, you know I can’t resist a neon pink pop… and that Kate Spade does it right. I’m also a huge sucker for some rose gold.
What’s your staple accessory?
Lately, I’ve been on a major pillow hunt. I’ve been living in my apartment for a few months now, and it’s slowly coming together… but I think my bed and couch need some color to liven things up. Kind of like this.
This also got me thinking about making some of my own…
