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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
