ScaleUp your Space-DIY

Hey Notebook Readers! Happy Tuesday...hope everyone is settling into the work week. Here is the DIYI promised. Scale art!
I used cardstock and this amazing ET cutter that allows you to cut anywhere from1" to 6" circles. It was a life saver to say the least!
Then I got cutting. The tool was easy to use so it went by quickly. I made 6" cuts. Save the extra cardstock for projects in the future since you will have extra !
I then layered the circles in rows staple gunning them down to a piece of thin MDF. You could glue them to cardboard too!
After I applied the circles I wanted to paint them gold :) I used spray paint which was very easy and quick
Check them out! Just love them. I was thinking you could paint them in an ombre affect too :) Happy DIYing!

This project made me so happy...I think because I got to do it with the sun shining and windows up but this fabric was just so nice...the color, the pattern was fun, it was a just all came together!
This is for a teenagers room...wish I had a message board like this back in the day!

I used a thin piece of birch, applied the cork and batting...then it was  zebra time

here it is! I staple gunned it around and called complete! well after I added a French cleat to hang it
Do you want a custom message board? Contact McNamara Design!

Buffing the Buffet

So I rarely do refinishing jobs but one of my besties asked me to help her with a buffet that her grandparents had and she wanted it refinished to match a table her parents had given her. I was up for the job! After months, yes months, of getting all the prep work done(striping, sanding, sanding, and sanding some more) the piece was ready! 

here its is before...

in this pic the top had already received some sanding but you can see the original stain color

below if the table her parents gave her...she wanted the buffet to match to the espresso color

check of the drawers so far! 

and the new pulls are just going to make this piece! I found these on home depots website for under $6! Just love them!!!

Have a great wednesday people! I cant believe its already in the middle of the week! Holla!
