easy DIY diamond string art 8

I have been on a DIY ride for some time. Well I am not the best at it, I have to admit. Some projects fumble and crumble right in front of my eyes coz i am too lazy to actually care too much :). But i love the simple fun 5-10 min projects preferably non messy.

So here is one of my really fun, easy peasy and non messy project which is an absolute delightful art addition to my home. I am in love with this diamond. And it took me no less than 10 mins to finish! Now who wouldn’t want that!!!

Here is how i did it!

Material:

  • one canvas: i used the small size
  • thread in choice of your color
  • needle
  • pencil and scale to sketch

2. Thread the needle and get going.

4. Keep going! When you run out of thread simply loop it into the nearest knot. just avoid making a thread mess behind the canvas, coz it can overshadow your art.

Side Tables

My current obsession!!!… Side Tables
Its the kind of thing you look for, when you don’t want to transform a room but just elevate it. I think these pieces are just magical.
I absolutely love them. They are petite, they are pretty, they are whimsy and they are perfect little things to add texture and a place for your drink in a room. I just cant get enough of them. Every room needs some of these gorgeous pieces, and my room need like tons of these guys!! one for the lonely corner, one for tuck under the vignette, one to hold the phone and some knick knacks.

See how beautifully they fit and how majestically they contribute to the room. They are like pretty sculptures with defined role in a room! N i have decided I just cannot live without the wood bark or the gold wire! I hv got to get my hand on them… here are my some absolute fav picks :

Chalkboard Wall

 

As couple we often find polarized when it comes to making mutual decor decisions. So when my husband declared I was relieved when my husband said he wanted the living room feature wall to be chalkboard wall!!! Finallly!! I thought I wold never have one.

 

we have two feature walls in our living room + dinging room space. Me and my husband split it between each other. I was responsible for the dining room wall featured behind the frozen birthday party . And my husband was responsible for the tv display wall. For the dining room wall I was clear and concise it had to be stripes. The living room wall was open for experiment and what i had in mind was some maybe ombre or color block or CHALKBOARD! honestly i never thought my husband would pluck the nerve but he did!!

 

I have to admit i was pretty nervous when i first held up the chalk to the wall. to make things easier i broke it down into four sections.  I always loved the Dubai skyline and my husband wanted the algebra equation. The tv turned out to be our starting point becoz it had to be in the middle and to add frame to it was simply to make it a part of the feature wall. And MY feature wall had to have the typography or calligraphy whatever its called. I had soooo much fun fiddling around with chalk. The thing about chalk is that you even love the imperfections. 🙂
