there’s something really special about zachary smith’s hand painted typographic illustrations. maybe it’s their sentiments, or the feelings they evoke on the viewer. maybe it’s the unique lettering or beautiful imagery. i think it’s probably a little bit of each, since i get completely entranced when i look at them. they make me long to get outside, get creative and be adventurous all at the same time.

painted baskets

diy painted baskets

i use baskets for just about everything. in fact, i don’t even have a drawer for my socks! i keep everything from scarves to dog toys in baskets of all kinds, so this diy for painted baskets from the marion house book really stood out to me. every time i go thrifting, i now scour the isles for big baskets- i would especially love to find some large round ones like these pictured above.

aren’t they beautiful? head on over to the marion house book to see the full tutorial.

diy painted jars

July 18, 2011

happy monday, lovelies! how was your weekend? after much debate, we decided to venture out into the dreaded carmageddon, but to our surprise, didn’t have any issues at all! in fact, it was eerily quite around l.a.- we spent the whole weekend there for a little bike-race-getaway and didn’t get stuck in traffic once. we couldn’t believe it! but enough of that, shall we get on to our 2nd diy for the day? i think so!

diy painted jars

after seeing these beautiful painted jars on kootut murut a while back, i couldn’t wait to make them myself. even though jutta’s turned out much prettier than mine, i thought i would at least go ahead and share them with you. they were a cinch to make and so much fun!

i’m going to send you over to jutta’s painting pastel glass jars for detailed instructions, but the steps are pretty simple. simply add paint, a little water, shake, drain and let dry. all the bottles i used were leftover condiment bottles, from salsa, strawberry jam and hot sauce. what a wonderful way to reuse, reduce and recycle!

perfect for pens and paintbrushes, i love the simple look they have and the colorful splash they give.
