A few weeks ago, I wrote about seven home projects I have on my to-do list. After living in our new house for a few months, I’m starting to get antsy to make changes, and the list is starting to grow. Recently, I decided to knock out one big project – our entertainment center.
Previous owners of our home created this giant wood built-in entertainment center in the living room. We can only imagine it was built in the late 90’s/early 2000’s, because it was clearly designed for a large tube tv. Take a look.
I have to be honest. This project was really intimidating for me. I don’t know if it was because screen printing, on the surface, seems really complicated or the fear of ruining materials that aren’t cheap or disposable. However, I have to tell you. Screen printing is much easier than it appears and it was so fun. I’m already planning all kinds of projects!
For years, I’ve wanted to try screen printing and finally decided to dive in. I bought the Speedball Intermediate Screen Printing Kit on Amazon for about $35 and dreamed up simple but useful projects to teach myself how to use it. Obvious answer: onesies for our baby. I mean, baby needs to have fun and clever things to wear, right?
When designing our Disney ocean themed nursery, we knew we were going to incorporate seashells. First, seashells are absolutely fitting for any ocean or beach themed room. And second, we have a lot of them sitting around.
Like “a lot” a lot.
Most of these are left over from our Coastal Christmas and were just begging for a second life. So here it is!
As is the goal with most of my craft projects, this one is incredibly easy, fast, and inexpensive. Keep reading for the step-by-step guide.Read More »
