Is It A Stack of Books? -NO! It’s A Staircase

It’s truly amazing what some imagination and craftiness can do to a set of stairs! Pippa Branham, a bibliophile from England, painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books. She says that she was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest.13620139_10153510438327100_4863390341502123973_n 13626507_10153510437912100_5476431942565694096_n 13599793_10153510438247100_6111838177606377111_n 13626636_10153510438092100_8287461095767556737_n landscape-1469470910-staircase-transformation-projects-books (1)

For all of us, Pippa shared some images of how she transformed the  wooden stairs into colorful “books” using brushes, tape, paint and, of course, time (6 weeks). The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs. Pippa declared that  the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways.13620139_10153510438327100_4863390341502123973_n13626636_10153510438092100_8287461095767556737_n

Pippa is a young mother and to ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier.13599793_10153510438247100_6111838177606377111_n

If you are a bibliophile and you want to have an original staircase with a little money you must try this. You can paint the titles of your favorite books. More than that, if you have children this idea can help them to develop their passion for reading because they will see books all around them!BeFunky Collage13626636_10153510438092100_8287461095767556737_n

An Old Door Design

oldDoor

I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars.

OldDoor2

 

The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf.

oldDoor3

I replaced the glass with bead board… it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint… First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint.

OldDoor4

I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than brown and the glaze was the perfect color.

Here is the finished product. I will probably add baskets to the top and inside the crates once it is in place. I think it will go beautifully in the breakfast nook of my farmhouse inspired kitchen

 Not to mention the pleasant smell of spring flowers!

2.Farm House Style;

A farm house wouldn't be complete without plants, and rustic details. Add a rustic carpet on your floor or rustic 
sheets on your bed. If you are not a fan of real flowers because you don't have time to take care of it you can buy 
some faux ones and it will look as beautiful as they were real.

3 Spring Trends

3 Spring Trends

If you haven’t already thought about redecorating something in your house with the arrival of spring, well now is the time!

If you wonder what should you change I suggest to find places in your house which are in need of a little bit of life.

The first trend I’d like to speak about is the Color White. I know, I know white isn’t really a color, but this spring you need to bring light in your house and decorating in white (and add a pop of color) is the main thing to do for a brighter home.

The second trend speaks about imposing colors as green, baby blue, yellow on velvet couches and on little accessories like flower vases, a green plant, a blanket or candle jars.

The last, but not the least trend speaks about decorating with a mix of patterns. I mean, try to mix something that fits with the idea of decoration in your mind, but try not to overdecorate ( I mean paint walls in patterns and also put a carpet with lots of pattern).

P.S: Geometric patterns are a real trend!

From all three trends, I have to admit that the last one is my favorite, because these days I really have a passion for geometric tattoos, patterns, sheets and so on. Which one is your favorite?

Colors For Spring

Spring is coming and we need new inspiration, new ideas. But when it comes to decorate our room with new furniture or little decorations we have to know what colors are in trend for this year.

It seems that a one color look for your room is now enough to make it look great!

YELLOW

Yellow is not the easiest color to decorate with, but if you get it right, yellow can be sunny and uplifting. All you have to do is to play with textures and patterns.

Yellow Yellow Yellow

ORANGE

A more contemporary choice than strong reds, orange works best when used in moderation.

Orange Orange

GREEN

Fresh, moss greens work best in a hall, garden room or conservatory – rooms that link to the outside.

Green Green

There are also some colors that you can use by itself: blue, pastel pink,violet.
