Delineate Your Dwelling

a few things that make my heart go pitter patter.

Button Box update

Monday, September 22, 2014

It's Monday!  And Monday means my Guest Room + Office mini series continues on.  Today I am sharing this quick update for my Button Box.  

Button Box update, Delineate Your Dwelling

I wish I knew the origin of this wooden box.  It's just one of those random things that have been in your house for 8+ years and you just figure you inherited it when you got married.  I'm guessing it was the hub's lovely wooden box and now I've taken it over to hold all the millions of buttons that just appear in our lives.

While updating my guest room + office space, I went through and made quick updates to many of the little items sitting on our bookcase.  I loved the wood grain and color of this box, but decided he needed a little face lift of white.

Using washi tape, I taped off a simple geometric pattern.

A few swipes of white spray paint and already it looked so much better.

Then came the best part, removing the tape.

What an easy transformation.

Twig Colored Pencils

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Today I will be sharing this Colored Pencils project.  I was a practicing Landscape Architect for 8 years and have a soft spot in my heart for all natural materials, so when I spotted these twig colored pencils I fell in love.  However, I wanted to add just a little extra something to them!

My supplies were so simple for this project.  I grabbed six different acrylic paints, some washi tape and a paint brush.  I found the box of twig colored pencils at Home Goods and have seen them at TJ Maxx before, too.

The first step is adding some washi tape to the twigs for where you want the main color to end.

Then, after the paint has dried, add another layer of washi tape.  This will be where the white tip goes.

Once the paint has all dried, remove the tape.  Now it's time to use those bad boys!

I love how the small white tip gives the impression of an eraser.
