Nancy Drew DIY Wall Art Makeover (w/ vlog!)


Hello lovelies!  I mustered the gumption to put together my first ever video featuring yours truly!  I'm kinda a dork on camera so don't to be to hard on me!  (Or the fact that I can't help but pronounce ModPodge as ModgePodge. Haha.  And that I do not have mad video editing skills.  *Sigh*.)  Hope you enjoy the project!





Nancy Drew was my childhood hero growing up.
I loved her outfits, adventures, and boyfriend Ned Nickerson.  


Supplies:
Wall hanging - 2.99 from Goodwill
Inspiration - Nancy Drew book I already owned
ModPodge or Spray Glue - already on hand
Yellow Spray Paint - 3.50 from Hobby Lobby
8x11 Print-out of Book Cover Art - .85 at copy shop
Clear Spray Paint - already on hand


Finished project!


So cute! :)


Eventually I'm going to write the title down the side/spine, too!

I pronounce it 'Modge Podge' in my head when I read it online, not sure if ModPodge is available in the UK though, so hadn't heard it pronounced before. :)

Love your blog!

This is such a great idea! The doorway in my room is like an alcove basically and the walls are naked. I didn't know what to hang there...UNTIL NOW! I'm going to go through my extensive book shelf and look for my favorite classics (I'm already thinking of one, The Great Gatsby). This way I won't have exposed walls in my room. ^_^

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
