Design Remix


It is WFMW at Rocks in my Dryer.

I do not know about you, but I have many things around my home that need work. Some I can do, some I can’t and some I think I can’t when I really can.

I watch a few shows on HGTV and DIY that show me that there are things I can do with a very limited budget. I like design remix as well as some others. They show you how to take something and remake it into something else, and for little to no money. Just rearranging helps so much as well.

I saw something on the Design Remix with using a glaze and paint mixed and doing a wall with it. I thought it looked great, but could not even get the glaze at the time, or so I thought. I went to a yard sale, got a bucket of glaze, a sponging tool, some paint and other items for under $2 and did my headboard!

I watch these shows and get ideas when I can and them I have something to go by when I want to do something. My new project is taking some old windows, crackle painting them and then using for picture frames above my fireplace. Paint is oops paint from Lowes and crackle was the same, windows were from a friend who is moving and knew I was looking for them. Cost for three large windows, $7 plus what ever it will take me to frame the pictures in the opening. Believe me, it will not be much!

Try watching when you can and get ideas. You can remix the remix ideas and come up with your own as well!

Works for me!

  1. Oh, I saw someone had taken an old window, painted it white and used it as a picture frame with black and white pictures in it. since then I’ve been wanting to do that! They had 3 kids, and so since the old window had 6 panes, each kid got two panes! it was so cute. I just haven’t found any old windows yet to do that with. Where are the pictures of your headboard?
