Two words. Two really important words: GLITTER GROUT. Seems like you can get them as an additive or pre-made grout. And, in my heart I feel it could range from ’70s dream kitchen to mermaid bathroom, from a unicorn-themed mosaic table, to a TARDIS blue and sparkly starlight grout-ed garden path…
My husband and I have been wanting to have glitter-covered walls in our bedroom forever. We’re talking ’70s beauty salon kind of glittery. Now that the time has come to do the deed we’re not sure what the best way is to go about it.
Did y’all know that my home-away-from-home is on Maui? My family owns a place there that we jokingly call “The Shack.” It’s the place where we got the hemp lamp, and the carbana. It may not look like much from the outside, but my mother has transformed the inside into a glitter girly mermaid-inspired island oasis. If you like all things shiny and ocean-y you’ll love this home tour.
Also, this begs the question… where are all my island-dwelling Homies? Let’s talk about this very awesome, but sometimes challenging lifestyle.
We all have our vices, and these light-hearted striped ceramic jars give you a cookie jar-like storage spot for your chemical of choice, whether it be something illicit like ganja, peyote, or shrooms; something a bit more common like caffeine or prozac; or even my vice of choice, glitter.
Take any nail polish, apply two coats, and you’re done. That’s how easy this DIY project is. Remove with nail polish remover, and you can start all over with new colors.
All the curtains I can find are way boring. Where do you guys go for curtains?
I’ve thought about buying fabric and making my own, but I’d prefer not to. Also, when I say redo, I mean going from a “Hey, this is cheap and we can use it” to a “Hey, this is thoughtfully put together and really shows off the occupants’ personalities.” Which in this case is retro ’60s (him) and anything glittery (me).
So if anybody has any ideas or links to cool curtains, I would love you forever. But since this is the internet I think forever means like a nanosecond…whatever, I would be really grateful. -Christine
Christmas comes but once a year so I have to share ANOTHER dark Christmas tree from a reader — even though we already showed one gothy purple one! Whatever. I really doubt you guys are going to complain that we have too many AWESOME VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS PHOTOS.
