A Little of This & That… Renovating, Decorating, DIY Projects & Family

Welcome to Our Newest Sponsor: Anitavee

A warm welcome to Anitavee, an online store that offers custom throw pillows in designer prints at a fraction of the price. Readers who enter ‘pepper’ as a promocode through May 31 will receive $10 off of their order!

A bit about the shop… Melvina, owner and designer behind the store, purchases high-end remnants and bolt ends from interior design studios and furniture/home decor manufacturers for all of her pillows to pass on savings and value to customers. Anitavee carries traditional, modern, ethnic, vintage and even burlap/natural fabric pillows. New pillows are added regulalry and all pillows ship – regardless of the quantity – within 2-4 days for a flat rate of $5.95.

The coral print, zebra stripes and burlap pillows are my favorite – they would look great as accents in the living room or tossed on the bed.

The Painted Patterned Door Project

Before: your average ho-hum plain wooden door. After: a modern, spruced-up entryway with a subtle touch of glam.

Inspired by this amazing wardrobe makeover, Leah Moss of Apartment Therapy created her own diy trellis door with a bit of painters tape and a quart of paint.

She used 3/4 inch painters tape to create the overlapping trellis pattern (which is a series of squares stacked on their corners) and then painted the door in Benjamin Moore’s Barely Teal mixed with their self-priming Aura line.

If you’re interested in contrasting colors, try painting the entire door prior to taping with another color/priming blend.

Cool idea, right? Here are three more, starting with two closet makeovers and one front door that’s sure to grab a bit of attention. All images from Apartment Therapy.

I especially love the idea of taking lackluster sliding closet doors and giving them a quick update. Painting isn’t the only option, what about wallpapering or covering in corkboard squares?

The Perfect Kid’s Birthday Treat

You may have heard of these delicious creations… but I had to share the confectionery delights because they are making my mouth water right now.

Baked inside a crispy cone, these individual desserts combine the perfect sundae (toppings and all) with the moist, deliciousness of a birthday cupcake. It’s a no-drip, no-plate & utensil solution for the perfect kid’s party treat.

It’s as easy as pouring a bit of batter into each cone, baking and decorating.

For the complete directions (including just how to bake such an unusually shaped dessert), follow the jump. Continue reading
