I´m a really lucky lady... a wonderful friend read a post, where I told you how I love buttons and she sent me some beautiful buttons she had at home... ohhhh how I love them... thank you so much Kristín!!! Aren´t they pretty and perfect??
For a long time now, I've been a big fan of IKEA and IKEA-makeovers. I´ve done several IKEA-makeovers, but today I want to share with you my 3 favorite ones:
1. IKEA RAST-bedside-table turnes into a stove for my boys:
A few years ago, my boys had so much fun, playing around with children-stoves so I used my imagination and made them one myself. I used a bedside-table, a towel-rail, knobs, IKEA-fabric and some black paint to create this:
My boys still play with it, and love it! A friend of mine came with her tools, and we had SO MUCH FUN making it - much more fun than I would have had just buying a normal childrens-stove in the toystore :-) Imagination is a great thing!
2. IKEA fabric turnes into one of my favorite dresses:
Remember how I told you the other day, that my mother was helping me making a dress-pattern, so I could sew a dress for myself? I knew exactly what I wanted: an A-line sixties-feel-good-dress. My genius-mother and textile-artist helped me to make a pattern (Link to her homepage)... she learned how to do this many years ago and I think she is able to make a pattern for almost anything you want to sew, if you just know what you want... like I said: genius. The first dress was a "test-drive" for the pattern, and we used a really pretty IKEA-fabric... this is how it turned out and I LOVE, love, love it:
3. IKEA fabric and a cork-memo-board:
The other day I got this really boring and ugly looking cork-memo-board. From the start, I knew I wanted to give it a little makeover, and this weekend I finally did! I used this really beautiful IKEA-fabric and my staple gun and made this:
