DIY – Wood bracelet with 'silver inlay'

Monday, October 7, 2013

A great DIY on how to make a wooden bracelet with 'silver inlay'

Okay, it’s obviously not real silver in this ‘wood’ bracelet. But you have to admit that it looks like it! I decided to give a bracelet with wood-print a makeover with silver duct tape. This looks like the wood has a silver inlay. Of course you could also take a real wood bracelet for this DIY, but I had this one with wood-print still lying around. I really like the result and I’m sure I will wear this bracelet very often!

Read on to see how to make this wood bracelet with ‘silver inlay’. . .

As you probably know by now , I love color. Especially in combination with white . Color can make your home look so much more personal, because color has a lot to do with taste . Our house is in that respect not finished . There is still a lot of color to add! We are getting there, but for now I am far from satisfied.

Because we don’t have a big kitchen I think I want a white kitchen . We already have a beautiful light blue painted cupboard and I’m planning to spray paint the lights above the dining table. And don’t forget my light blue 50’s stove! A beautiful KitchenAid mixer definitely wouldn’t look out of place in my dream kitchen, and it’s still high on my wish list!

As you can see in the pictures above: accessories make the kitchen complete. I like the brightly colored trashcan ( picture 4 ). We don’t have place for a beautiful Smeg refrigerator in our kitchen. But it’s so beautiful!

What does your dream kitchen look like? XO Wilma
