DIY – How to protect and whiten your wooden table

DIY - How to protect and whiten your wooden table @ By Wilma

My dining table is something I will never trow away. It was a gift from my parents and I absolutely love this table. I have it now for 3 or 4 years and it already has had three different looks. It was painted grey when I got it. When I moved in with my boyfriend the table didn’t really fit into our home. So we used it as a desk in stead of a dining table. We painted the table white at that point. Now we are in our new home and the table is back in the kitchen. Because I don’t really like paint on top of my table (it stains so easily) I decided to remove all the paint. I love a wooden table that is lived on! We wanted to keep the wood of the table light so we tried store bought stain. It was terrible. Then we tried beeswax. Better, but we’ve got water damage right away. I didn’t want to spent to much money so I decided to try google. I found a perfect recipe for table oil (which I then chainged a little). Plus I defeloped a simple technique to whiten your table.

Fashion – Pretty in green outfit

pretty in green fashion 2012

Green is one of my favorite colors to wear. I think that it looks great with my blond hair and pail skin. White is also a ‘color’ that I really like. But I don’t want to wear to much of it. Why? Well… I’m too messy. Yes I know I’m twenty seven, I should know better. But I always get stains in my clothes. It’s frustrating. This outfit has a wonderful shade of green and of course white. And I love it! What do you think? XO Wilma

DIY – Anthropologie inspired monogrammed mugs

DIY - Anthropologie inspired monogrammed mugs

When I first saw the monogrammed mugs from Anthropologie I immediately fell in love. I just needed to have them for my home. But then I thought it would be way cooler to make them myself. It’s a great recycling project for thrifted white mugs. Besides that I absolutely love the fact that the mugs are different sizes and that you can see that the letters are drawn by hand. It makes it so much more personal! This ‘home’ mugs are coming on display in my new home!
