Rachel moved into her first apartment about a month ago and has been back to college for three weeks already. She spent the summer making art for her walls, finding retro furniture at yard sales, and repainting hand-me-down pieces given to her by family and friends.
Not only does she have a trendy, gorgeous apartment, but in total she spent less than $50 furnishing it. She even ordered free samples of paint from Valspar and also used paint we already had. We like to live simply and she has taken this to heart. So love what she did with our old roll-top desk and $1 orange office chair find!
One project she designed for her walls using digital art is this pretty photo dreamcatcher. Using these instructions from Lune Vintage’s blog, she wound lightweight yarn around a large embroidery hoop (rather than what Lune recommended) and then tied a vintage doily of mine in the center. Again, using our handy dandy Ikea clips we hung a vintage photo and a 6×6 printed photo art blend (applied #30 from set 3 on soft light blend mode over my hollyhock image – resized from 12×12 to 6×6). We printed the photo art blend on matte photo paper.
