Spring this year came a little sooner than usual. Then it kind of waved us goodbye again and the temperature dropped. But now, it is officially Spring and that gets us thinking about outside dining, cookouts, and afternoons by the pool. I have been wanting to hand dye a couple of home items for quite some time. From placemats, to throw quilts or pillow cases. So, the other day I wore my plastic blue gloves and finally did it. Making hand dyed indigo napkins is a fun way to add more pattern and color to the table setting making the next mealtime a little extra special.
Materials1- Napkins (you can order the same ones I used here, or use what you have in your home) 2- Tie dye kit (I recommend this one here because it comes with the dye as well as a couple of tools, like the rubber bands, gloves, popsicle sticks and square wooden pieces) 3- Clothespins 4- Large bucket

I am thrilled to have partnered with Project Nursery, one of my favorite kids' blog. In case you never heard of them, you must check them out.

For this partnership, I will be writing about one DIY project every month. These projects will range from simple, yet elegant décor for kids' spaces, to free printables and more.

We just finished putting together an IKEA diy desk. This was such an easy and fun project to work on. We used left over material we had laying around the house to get this beauty done. A couple of 2x4" pieces, the same dark-colored stain we used on the kitchen countertops, and an IKEA kitchen cabinet panel we ended up not needing from our recent kitchen renovation.
:::: MAKING IT/ Scooter Makeover ::::Back in July, Bela and Marcus spotted two old scooters at a yard sale in our neighborhood. We purchased both scooters for $5 each. I thought it would be cool to give these old scooters a face lift. Nothing too complicated, just spray paint them to make them more colorful. So a couple of weeks ago, I finally got around to do it. Bela's old scooter was golden with red. We transformed it with pink, orange and white spray paint. It turned out to be a pretty easy makeover, and Bela loved the transformation. Check out the details below: Project check list: - scooter - spray paint in different colors - tape To see more Making It projects, visit our Pinterest board here.
