DIY Graphic Onesie
visit for the For the Love Of… for the tutorial
And don’t forget baby! What a great interpretation of our Family Messenger Center set! Andrea over at For the Love Of… saw past the calendar and the to-do list and created this inspiring onesie. So cute!
Arrow Print Frame
visit Girl Loves Glam for the tutorial
I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for a great way to frame my kiddos smiling faces to give as gifts to the relatives (hi, grandma and grandpa!). Girl Loves Glam makes great use of the arrow stencil, but just about any of the Handmade Charlotte stencils will work. Our number stencils painted on a framed class photo would make an excellent teacher gift, don’t you think?
visit Crafty Texas Girl for the tutorial
Chairs are one of the most used and abused pieces of furniture around our house. The kids stand on them, jump from them, knock them over, and sometimes even draw on them. What better way to spruce one up than strategically placed toddler-inspired astro shapes. Love it!
Chevron Step Stool
visit Sew Woodsy for the tutorial
And for the chair’s loving companion—the foot stool. The chevron series stenciled on top makes a tired, old-fashioned stool modern and fit for any room of the house.
Tool Chest Makeover
visit My Three Monsters for the tutorial
What’s better than taking a rusty old clunker and turning it into magical bedroom furniture? When it comes to crafty makeovers, not much, I have to say. Tool chest, toolbox, old lockers—you name it. Just dig through your garage, visit a flea market, or search etsy or ebay for endless makeover treatures.
