Brooklyn Limestone Blog
I have had Brooklyn Limestone in my FFF FOREVER! I’ve been watching, reading and drooling over her talent for a very long time. Her creative DIY home projects have me completely inspired, making lists, collecting ideas… Renovating this Limestone is a classic Cinderella story. Once you read their story, you’ll understand why. Besides renovating, she will inspire you with her unique ways, her thrifty ways of decorating.
DIY Decor Ideas
Renovating the pantry can be simple as just painting the inside of the door with chalkboard paint. Seriously……is there anything cuter? Then if you really want to kick it up a notch, add a darling chandelier stenciled image.
This reminds me. I was going to order some of these prints a bit ago from a gal on Etsy. I must have seen something shiny. But now maybe I’ll try it myself. Now on the lookout for old dictionary’s. Loving how this looks. The perfect amount of charm, originality and COOLNESS!
You know you have my vote (if that’s worth anything) if you have something out of the ordinary on your walls. I mean anyone can buy wall decor at their local department or furniture store…….and fall into the “I’ll have what she’s having” decorating mentality. Mrs. Limestone is a girl who loves to travel. She even sells some of her photographs she’s taken from many of her trips. This DIY wall decor is not only original, but it reflects the dwellers passions and personality. They remind me a bit of my Sid Dickens Memory blocks. I love those.
Why purchase an expensive bed side table when you can just jazz up one with a bit of Silver Leaf and a sharpie. You can’t over think these things…….she proves that by using a jar lid to form that scalloped corner. Can I tell you how much I love brilliant decorators like Mrs. Limestone……..these woman blaze the trail!
We all that spot in the home that piles up with mail, papers, etc… And if you don’t, then you’re just not normal. True.
She searched high and low for the perfect small table, worked her magic one it and even cut off the back end. Using a few empty frames and some metal decorative grating, she created the most stylish DIY mail center.
I’ve said it many times before….Do we EVER get tired of a good Silhouette? She needed a dramatic wall piece to go above their bed. Why not a whimsical approach to the traditional silhouette? I believe she has since changed this wall, but I loved the way this looks and thought it was worth passing on to you.
Antique silverware is once again a sought after medium for decorating. I don’t have it listed here, but you can see an amazing holiday wreath she made using a few spoons. These stamped fork napkin rings can be used year round.
She has a full tutorial showing you step by step on how she made these. You can pound away your frustrations. And there’s that sharpie again. Who knew we’d need a sharpie for so many DIY projects?
In her spare time, she dabbles in a little graphic design. Invitations, announcements, menu’s, etc….She helped her husband……actually I think her husband helped her…….with some bachelor party invites for a friend of his. Can you just imagine opening up a cool invite like this?
The best part? They don’t look horribly confusing or hard to make. I think these could also make great trophies for a baseball team……too bad my son doesn’t play anymore. But maybe something like this for soccer? Hmmmm.
I hope you’ll head over to Mrs. Limestone’s blog and pay her a visit. I know she would LOVE a comment. Wouldn’t you? It makes me so happy when my featured bloggers tell me what great readers I have and the nice comments they receive.
I think you’ll LOVE these posts too.
