Stripes, Secrets And The Week That Was – April 8, 2011

by Alicia on April 8, 2011

Happy Friday! Has it been long enough that you can read that without singing Rebecca Black in your head? I’m not there yet, unfortunately. What are you up to this weekend? Any DIYs planned? I’ll be going to see The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, doing a lot of fun work (secret project!) and not-so-fun work (taxes! I hate you!) along with trying to fit in a little yoga and a nice dinner.

OUT THERE

- Two epic DIYs – this guy made that jacket out of two tote bags!
- And that wall was painted by hand. Stunning!

- Sick of stripes yet? Had to include these finds from Erin at Design for Mankind.
- And this shot from The Locals.

- Would braiding fabric into  your hair be a hair DIY? I don’t know, but it’s definitely pretty!

IN HERE

- I obsessed over stripes (like the ones above from Net-A-Porter). A lot.
- And made my own striped skirt from IKEA fabric.
- Gave my shoes a makeover with a Sharpie.
- And I teased a new project I’m excited about that will be here NEXT THURSDAY!

Hand painting that wall would have taken forever. It’s amazing though.

I know! She wrote that she did it slowly over time, and that’s probably the only way it could be done. BTW, love you crepe paper wall – I was just decorating for a party a few weeks ago and wish I’d seen it earlier! Next time…
