Slight obsession with RED

DIY red vases by nowathomemom

DIY project frames and pinecones

Red is my hubbyโ€™s and I favorite color and our one year old boy seems to gravitate to all red things as well (i.e. ELMO). So, this month I might have gone a bit crazy with this color in our eat-in-kitchen by painting some accessories instead of buying.

It all started by the need to add a touch of color to our new eat-in-kitchen and not having much to spend on new accessories.

So, I gathered accessories that I already owned and spray-painted them in red, please let me share with you these pictures and hopefully they will inspire you to do the same around the house with just a coat of paint. (someone needs to stop me from spray-painting everything in my house) ๐Ÿ™‚

Tomorrow, I will be posting again to show you the rest of my RED DIY projects, I was going to write one big post, but decided otherwise because, I realized no one wants to read a 3 feet long post.

These white vases turned red vases bring life and warmth to our eat-in-kitchen

This is a simple white plant pot, now it holds my wood spoons in my eat-in-kitchen:

Continuing my slight addiction to red, this is another simple DIY project for the Holidays:

we see many of these online and I decided to create my own with frames, red paint and wrapped red ribbon around it. Let me share with you how I did it and how simple it was to do:

tools:

– two simple frames

– hot glue gun

– saw

– pinecones (got mine from the “dollar store”)

– ribbon (color of your choice, mine is “red” for the Holidays)

instructions:

– with the saw, cut the frames to the frame of your choice (mine is an “H”)

– with the hot glue gun, glue the frames together

– with the hot glue gun, glue the pinecones to the frames (one by one)

– wrap ribbon around the frames to get a touch of color

I will be posting new DIYโ€™s with a touch of RED tomorrow (please stay tuned)

P.S.: There is another color that really got my attention, it’s calledย “Mint Majesty“, soย I bought a sample of it, I wonโ€™t tell you yet what I painted with this color, so please come by again, so you can see what I did! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you for stopping by!

    What happens when you play a game and everyone has to choose a color for their piece? It must get ugly your house as everyone reaches for red.

    I love red too! It’s our accent colour throughout the house. God help me during Christmas I have to reign it back or it would take over. ๐Ÿ™‚
