DIY Hanging planter

DIY Hanging planter

You know we love to share with you great and also easy to follow DIY’s and for this sunny beginning of March, we have a new one for you!

Here’s what lovely Janey prepared for you:

With spring right around the corner, we’ve been thinking of ways to add some bright and smart home decor pieces to any home. As you may know, not all decor is strictly for our view’s pleasure. Some decor can be quite useful like a set of corner shelves or practical, like a kitchen chalkboard to write down all of your to-do’s. Houseplants, however, prove time and again that they’re not only useful but quite beneficial to our health. With that said, we thought we’d share this easy and versatile DIY hanging planter from Shutterfly. Continue reading “DIY Hanging planter”

Why DIY – mural on the wall

Why DIY – mural on the wall

As it turns out, our mural really caught your eyes.

We got a lot of questions on how my sister and I drew the map of Dubrovnik Old Town we showed in our last post and guess what – it’s not that hard at all!

But it is time-consuming, though.

We were going back and forth deciding whether to use a projector or to draw freehand. And to tell you the truth, if we were about to draw basically anything but a map, a projector wouldn’t even be an option.

The idea itself sounds like a foolproof method, but in reality, we literally ended up constantly being in our own way. You see, standing between the projector and the wall is everything but a foolproof method.

The thing is, we didn’t have much time to do the preparation for freehand drawing. But it’s not very common to be on tight schedule when planning a mural in your home. So in case you see drawing as a relaxing thing to do over a period of time and you’re about to enjoy the process as much as the result, here’s what you’re gonna need:

Why DIY – a wedding

Why DIY – a wedding

Okay, you might say we’ve been neglecting this blog. And that might be true. But we were also renovating homes and doing all sorts of things which will soon find their way to this website. Promise.

Most recently – literally a week ago – we designed decorations we’re about to show you. Not because they are something to learn from, but because we think they’re pretty. Isn’t that reason enough?

Now, whether or not you should ever consider DIY wedding decorations (or decorations for any party) is quite obvious: if it’s not overwhelming and if you find it enjoyable, then definitely.

DIY Ladder plant stand

DIY Ladder plant stand

We can proudly say we are getting better and better in keeping our plants alive. We replanted about  20 Chinese money plants last year and, as you’ve probably seen on Instagram, Petra is successfully growing avocados from seeds. You know by now we are big fans of plants of all kind, and each day we’re looking for a new way to display them in our homes.

Last year we made a Macrame Plant Hanger – first DIY post for our blog’s first birthday. Thanks to the fact Taylor from ProFlowers saw that post and loved it, we got to share their DIY project Kokedama string garden on our blog. And now, once again they have an amazing tutorial for you.

This DIY is easy and perfect for all of you who enjoy little home projects, so let’s get down to business. Here’s the ProFlowers‘s DIY Ladder Plant Stand:

A DIY ladder plant stand is a great space-saving solution for those that are running out of room to decorate with plants or are tired of standard shelving. Plus, the ladder plant stand will help you curate the perfect indoor garden – maybe even a herb garden in the kitchen? The best part of this do-it-yourself project is that you get to design a display that fits your preferred taste and style. Continue reading “DIY Ladder plant stand”

Rental apartment improvements that actually make a difference

Rental apartment improvements that actually make a difference

Have we ever told you we don’t live in perfect apartments?

You see, over the years, we both went through every imaginable stage of a home remodel – from quick fixes to entire home transformations. With a few too expensive temporary solutions and a lot of unnecessary purchases that, in the end, made no difference.

So either you live in a rental apartment, or you want to easily, and on a budget, fix up the one you own, stick around. Because we’re about to share with you home improvement ideas we know are good. The ones we tried and would do again. We’ll also include a few don’t-do-it/it-won’t-help remarks.

We can’t believe it’s been a year since we wrote our first blog post. Since we’re celebrating our 1st birthday (that’s actually tomorrow) we decided to make something and share it with you.
So we thought, even if you’re not planning to remodel your apartment at this moment, maybe your plants can get a new place to stay.

We LOVE macrame plant hangers and they are huge right now. We feel everyone’s posting macrame photos all over Instagram and we love every single one of them.

This DIY is really easy, but we won’t lie – it’s time-consuming. So, arm yourself with patience and start knotting, we promise at the end you’ll be really happy with your new plant hanger. Continue reading “DIY Macrame plant hanger”
