I'm a huge list maker. I adore paper and always have a handful of notebooks on hand to keep those lists under control and this Simple Watercolor Notebook was so fun to put together!
Supplies: Watercolor Paper + watercolor paint set Chipboard Scissors Sponge Brush Mod Podge Object for folding
I first, took a plain sheet of watercolor paper and lightly drew a diamond pattern on it. Then, I slowly started filling in the diamonds with color. Once, the watercolor was dry I was able to erase the pencil marks.
Note: If you aren't into watercolors, another option for the cover would be your favorite scrapbook paper.
1. First, I took five or six sheets of lined paper and folded them in half. I had already cut the sheets down, so when folded they would be a perfect long skinny notebook size.
2. Then, I laid out the lined paper onto my chipboard sheet and cut it to size. Folding chipboard is a little harder, so I used this adorable ruler I bought a few months ago, but really anything hard will work to help fold the sheet.
3. Next was cutting down the watercolor sheet. I laid the sheet down and traced my chipboard overtop to create the pretty top cover.
4. And finally, I mod podged the watercolor sheet and chipboard together. Once that had dried, I laid open the cover, added the lined paper sheets and with two simple staples, it was done!
This is a perfect notebook to keep in your purse for those random lists that come to you while out and about!
I'm using mine for a Summer to do list with my two kiddos before school starts up. Yes, that's right... kiddo #1 is heading off to pre-school two days a week and I'll be a mess!
Are you a huge list person like me? If so, this is the perfect project for you to show off your personality while keeping organized!
As I mentioned last Monday after sharing my Guest Room + Office Makeover, I will be sharing more details of the space for a few following Mondays and today's post is a closer look at the "office corner" of the room.
I received such love from you all for my Cassette Case turned Memory Box post that I fully intended on using as a memory box to store kiddo #2's treasures in... and then I realized I was going to cry a little bit every time he "messed up" the cute chalk design I had drawn on the front. So, now please meet my Cassette Case turned Delineate Your Dwelling paper/file organizer!
And my hubs is HONESTLY about to take away my gold spray paint due to a little paper punch that got a gold update. Sorry, but the original black was no bueno in the new cute office!
After falling in love but holding back and then having them go out of stock, I search all Targets for months on end... and finally found myself a little gold doggie tape dispenser. I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's all in the details. And friends, I love this little gold dog.
One of my favorite upcycles in the room was this chair from my late Grandma Gloria. I spray painted the chair white, did a little internal seat backing repair and then added the "stop pinning start making' quote from a tote given to me during Alt Summit from Whimseybox. You can read all the steps for that fun project, here.
The Target dollar sections came through for me with these adorable white striped metal pails, perfect for all my pencils, pens and markers.
I love how my little clay Geometric jar perfectly brings in a pop of green to my desk, from one of my air plants.
Next Monday, I'll be sharing the office shelves above my desk and a fun detail you might not expect on the green stool. I know the suspense is killing you.
