DIM (Did It Myself)

I’m going to go ahead and skip over the apologizes for not writing thing time, it seems like all A and I do is apologize for our lack of writing. But I will say, in my defense, that I’ve been battling some severe arm/hand pain for the past two weeks and have thus, been unable to type, write, and even feed myself. That being said, I couldn’t bare to leave you guys hanging any longer. 

What have we been up to?

As far as I’m concerned, I’ve been pretty much on bed/couch rest for awhile now. Which has given me ample time to get very well acquainted with HGTV’s current line of shows. A girl can only watch so many Friends reruns (not true, I could watch Friends reruns for years and never tire of them). 

Anyways, my HGTV obsession has led to an entirely new obsession – interior decorating and DIY. Obviously in my current state I can’t be gutting kitchens. So I’ve started a few minor projects for my (in the very near) future apartment. Here’s what (mom and) I did…

And here is how I did it…

Step 1: Collect old bottles and jars of various shapes and spray paint. We chose Rustoleum‘s metallic line and it worked really well!

And here’s how I’ve been using them…

really love them, even though it made my hands feel a lot worse and I don’t have an amazing little city apartment to put them all in (yet)! They were super easy and a great way to repurpose things that are too pretty to be wasted.

Love,
