Hi Glamorites!

I hope this morning didn’t come with a case of the Monday blues. There certainly wasn’t a lot of sunshine where I was today. So cheer yourself up with one of these little tricks. Here are some creative ideas that are certainly a new twist on their intended purpose….they are genius and so simple! Turn something ordinary in your household to something extradorinary. Change things up a little and wipe away those Monday blues!

Want to create some new inexpensive artwork, or a fun craft idea with kids? Well this idea you don’t need much to have a blast and create a colourful abstract masterpiece!

To accomplish this: grab a box of crayons laying around, get the hairdryer from the bathroom, have a canvas or paper out and put the dryer on high and hold up whichever crayon colour you want to use and BAM! you have artwork. Use as many colours as you want and create whichever pattern or shape you like.

Next time you are looking for a nightstand table or side table don’t go out and spend $70-$100 bucks, grab one of the wire trash baskets, spray paint it your desired colour and turn it upside down. Voila, it’s like magic!

You know all those shopping bags that accumulate in the hall closet or under the cupboard, why not make them into a fun feature wall! This could be the simplest form of art and also show off your sense of style (where you shop)!

Here you can buy individual letters or phrases (found at any home-depot or craft type store), spray paint them any colour you want and hang them in a space. This example is for a guest bedroom and written “be my guest” above the bed, very cute!
