Painted Paper Towel Holder

Today I will show you how to change your kitchen decor in 10 minutes. Painted paper towel holders are the new thing, didn’t you know? Especially the kind that look like the Easter Bunny popped out.

Is it just me or does anyone else constantly think of changing things in their house? I am starting to believe I am nuts. Clearly I have a minor DIY problem.

Good news is things will never get boring…right?

 I know what you are thinking. Why is the spray paint can orange but the the color she is using is purple.

What can I say I change my mind too much. For some reason I was channeling my inner Easter Bunny.


I am sure next week I will paint it black or white.

Stay tuned.


I guess my point is showing you that you can take something you have already and change the entire look with a little spray paint. I love that I think with the right part of my brain because I am constantly thinking of ways to show you things like this. Hopefully someone will love my pastel purple paper towel holder as much as me. Let me know what you think!


Paint Chip Canvas TUTORIAL

Hey Jaderbugs!!! I can’t believe I forgot to click “publish” yesterday after I wrote this!

I wanted to make you something that is FUN and EXCITING for Valentine’s day. I am always drawn into paint samples at any store I go into. I can think of a MILLION things to do with them and I never seem to have enough time! Sometimes I find paint samples that I absolutely can’t choose from, because I love the entire thing. That is why I came up with this fun craft! Why not make your own LIFE SIZE paint samples. You know, the kind where you can “pick” your own colors and “pick” your own names! I had so much fun making this and it would be a great gift to anyone! It is a great and cheap way to add lot’s of decor to a space and you can have tons of them for different holidays!

Some of the things I used to make this craft are:

1.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Basic Brush Set – 5pc

2.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Paint

3.  Artist’s Loft™ 2 Pack Value Canvas   

The colors I used for this project are : Pink Carnation, Raspberry Ice, Fruit Punch, Turquoise, Surf and Sea Lavender. They are all from the Martha Stewart line.

I hope you enjoyed the quick show I made you! If you want to see the tutorials on two of the crafts in the picture above here are the links!!! Enjoy!!!

1. Wine Cork Board

2.  Champagne-Bottle Wrap

Stay tuned I will be posting a tutorial on how to make a “head” to put on your wall. You will have to come back to see what kind of HEAD I am talking about!!!!

Sending you lots of paint chip colored canvases,
