diy stenciled lamp shade

i’m so in love with this lamp shade that royal design studio made this week using the forest floor damask from my stencil collection with them. i can never seem to find great lamps/lampshades and when i do, they’re usually out of my budget. not any more! you might even find me at a thrift store this week on the hunt for a nice blank-canvas-lampshade to work with. i especially love the gold they’ve used for the foliage. isn’t it pretty?

head on over to royal design studio to get the full tutorial!

lately, i’ve been researching painted floors and thought i would share with you a few that i have particularly fell in love with. as we house hunt and see old wooden floors throughout many of the homes, i can’t help but think about stenciling on them, even if in just one small room like the laundry area. my grandmother painted her wood floors a beautiful white and it brings such a clean, sweet, country feel to her little cottage. if you’re interested in learning more about how to go about painting wood floors, be sure to check out this tutorial by elle decor as well as this one over on apartment therapy.

Valentine’s Day may be tomorrow, but there is still time to create some seriously pretty love notes. If you’ve seen my Etsy shop, you would know that I know paper cutting words, so I created this easy tutorial for making your own letter stencils, and using color to your wildest imagination.


– card stock for stencil
– pencil, and eraser for mistakes
– craft knife / X-Acto blades
– paper or card stock and envelopes for cards
– color medium of your choice – paints, colored pencils, oil pastels, etc.

Begin by writing your message in block lettering. If you don’t feel comfortable writing free-hand, try printing your word(s) in your favorite font to use as a stencil.

Cut out the letters as silhouettes with your craft knife.

Center your stencil over your blank card where you want your wording to appear. Begin filling in your letters with complimenting or contrasting colors. I used colored pencils…

… and neon paints:

Your stencil can be used over and over until it wears out, but make sure it isn’t stained through before using again on a clean blank card.

That’s it! I hope you all have a very lovely Valentine’s Day.
