Why not create a luxurious feel with a little faux fur? For about $20-a-yard, you can drape that random assortment of folding, office and dining chairs in soft, fluffy fur, and create a stunning, pulled-together look.
- Faux Fur (60” wide)
- Suede Cording
1. Cut the faux fur to the width of your chair, plus 8-12”
2. Lay it on top of the chair to cover it, and give it a natural, bunched-up look.
3. Using the suede cording, secure the fur in a zig zag fashion, looping the cording up and around. Tie off the cording, leaving long tails as decorative accents.
This DIY menu is made from a simple wood cross section and a generous slathering of chalkboard paint. Bon appetit!
- Cross section of Wood
- Chalkboard Paint
- Decorative Hinge
- Wood Stick about 1” diameter, 5-6” long
- 3” Wide Paint Scraper
- Glue Gun
- Sanding Block
1. Spread the chalk paint on to the wood slice with a paint scraper – try to make it smooth, being careful to leave a blank border, and let it dry.
2. When it’s dry, sand down the paint, if any ridges are too thick to write on easily.
3. Attach a decorative hinge to the wood stick by hammering its nails directly into the stick – this will serve as the ‘kickstand’.
4. Then, attach the hinge with the kickstand to the back side of the wood slice with a drop of hot glue and nails.
5. Write your menu on the chalkboard.
Lots of leftover wine corks? Put them to good use this Thanksgiving, by turning them into place cards. They’re rustic and playful, and with a little fall leaf and a feather or two, they’re just so pretty to look at.
