DIY – Speech bubbles for your plants

Make this cute DIY speak bubble for your plants. Let them tell you they want to survive, or make one as a gift with a loving message!

I’m absolutely in love with this project. It looks so cute! The text I added to this speak bubble is sadly something that my plants would probably say when they could speak. I would love to keep everything alive, and really: I am learning But for some reason there are always moments that I just completely forget about my plants. That’s when they die, obviously. So maybe I made these speak bubbles as a reminder so this plant will really survive. Read More »

DIY – Upcycled tins with lids!

Make DIY upcycled tins with lids using MDF. You will never guess where those knobs on top are made of! Make DIY upcycled tins with lids using MDF. You will never guess where those knobs on top are made of!

You have no idea how happy I am with the way this project turned out. I can’t wait to make more! It started all with the wish of having a lid for my recycled tins. I mean: that’s how they become more than just another recycling project, don’t they? The lids are also very handy when you want to use the tins for storage. So I thought about ways to make such a lid and I came up with the perfect solution for the base: MDF. But you will never guess where those knobs on top are made of! Read More »

DIY – You are so loved 3D quote artwork

DIY - You are so loved 3D quote artwork DIY - You are so loved 3D quote artwork

A while back I found these really nice laser cut letters at the craft store. I took them home and thought about all the amazing things I could do with them. But honestly, they where just lying there waiting for me to decide what to make. And then I had some left over paint from another project. That’s when I knew what I wanted to do with those wooden letters: I wanted to make a cute 3D quote artwork. I absolutely love how it turned out. It’s a simple project, but it really looks amazing!

DIY – Face planter

DIY - Face planter tutorial

As you might know after my cress cups with a face DIY project, I love planters with a face on it. I thing it just gives every plant more personality! So today I want to share this little fellow with you. His name is Bob. OK, just kidding, I don’t actually give my planters names. But isn’t he cute? And I can change his ‘haircut’ as many times as I want. He doesn’t complain! This actually is a recycling project. For the base of this face planter I used a empty can! Read More »

DIY – Gold leaf vases or votives

Gold leaf glasses DIY project - By Wilma

I don’t no why, but I’m have a thing for gold at the moment. I love that it makes everything look fancy and chic. I experimented with gold spray paint, gold paint and of course gold leaf. So there will be more ‘golden’ DIY projects here at By Wilma! This project is made with gold leaf. You can buy gold leaf in kits like this one. If you are not planning on using it a lot, this might be the best option. When you are using it for more projects than only this one it might be cheaper to buy gold leaf and a good gold leaf adhesive separately.

About kitchen makeovers and colorful dining chairs

Love this - Colorful dining chairs

1 * 2 * 3 * 4 * 5 * 6

Our kitchen is still waiting for a makeover. Our pretty 50’s stove broke and I needed a new one. I was sad about the fact that this beautiful piece of history was now broken but I also thought this might be the time to makeover the kitchen completely. I don’t like the cabinets (they are dark grey), I hate the counter top (really hard to clean metal) and the tiles are just not my taste. We also have some room left right next to the stove where we put a trolley, but it’s always a little bit of a mess because we have not enough cabinet space. I wanted a cabinet there. I thought if we needed a new stove, we could just as well do all the other things we wanted at the same time. Because if we do it later, I have to buy a stove now and later replace it for an oven and a gas cooker that we build in. Crazy right?

I’m also on the hunt for some new dining chairs. We are thinking about having colorful dining chairs like the ones you see above. Maybe all in yellow? We are thinking about painting the kitchen too, but we are not sure yet. We really love the DSW chairs. They are so pretty and classic! I absolutely love them! XO Wilma
