A world of DIY ideas with Femke Pastijn

Stylist Femke Pastijn has a huge talent for styling and coming up with very simple and creative DIY ideas for the home. Taking forward the neon trend she thought of a solution for both hanging your tea towels to dry and covering your windows in a unique way. The wall hook made using a ruler and some spools are fun and very decorative for every sewing room. (All published in Dutch magazine 101-woonideeen)

I'm sure you will enjoy browsing Femke her website ... so much eye-candy and not only DIY ideas, the houses she has styled for various photo-shoots are very nice to see. I would really consider calling her for adding some spice and ideas to my home too. Her contact details are right here.

Mother's day Gift Tags from Bloesem for you

ILOVEmyMOM_white_tags

My sons came home today from school with self-made presents for Sunday ... Mothers Day that is ... the excitement on their faces and happiness to surprise me made me feel very special as a mom.

But I am still a 'daughter' too and feel very lucky to have my mom with me here in Singapore at the moment ... so in honor of my mom and my love for her I made these tags for her presents... something self-made too :) 

If you haven't had time yet to make something and want to use these tags too, please feel absolutely free by downloading the template  .... and print the files. 

Wish you a very lovely weekend and hope to see you back on Monday. ~irene xoxo

DIY: new upholstery for my chairs

Bloesem_diningroom

Today I would like to share a personal project with you that I finished last week. Two chairs that I bought a long time ago while living in Toronto ... vintage chairs in a beautiful shop on Queen street, not sure if the shop is still there? 

I never really liked the upholstery but last year I bought a whole roll of this retro fabric for only 6 euros and although I first imagined them as curtains in a perfectly white bedroom I decided to use them for these chairs instead.

The bedrooms here in our new Singapore apartment are a bit brownish already with all the wood used for the cupboards and floors so it was better to use white and light curtains instead. Not sure what I will do with the remaining fabric though :)

Upholstering chairs like these is actually quite easy. Just make sure you have the right stapler (you can buy in all the craft and hardware stores). Make sure you follow the patterns of the fabrics and stretch the fabric not too hard but strong enough so it doesn't wrinkle on the top. Corners are always a bit tricky but just experiment a bit and pretend you are wrapping a gift.

Good luck! ~irene xoxo
