DIY Bohemian Rug Sample Pillow

DIY-zipper-back-shag-rug-sample-pillow-decor-bohemian

Hello guys, today a have a quick easy DIY for you that you may not have considered before. I was recently shopping at West Elm when I ran across a huge pile of rug sample squares in their clearance area. There were so many great flat weave samples with great color and texture that I was dying to come up with something to do with them.

I mean at only $4.99 a square, I could hardly pass them up. (FYI: If you love this pattern the full-size rug is on clearance)

I got excited I ran across this one with a great shag pattern.

bohemian-coloreful-shag-rug-sample-piloow-diy

I it thought would work well with the fabric I was already considering for my bohemian screen porch update and even the back side of the sample was cool.zipper-back-rug-sample-pillow-diy-decor- fabric-sample

So I came up with the idea to turn these samples into a quick easy pillow by making a back panel with a zipper cut about an inch larger than my sample. If you’re not that advanced a sewer an envelope back would work just as well.

zipper-back-rug-sample-pillow-diy

Iron under the raw edges to fit just inside the edges of your sample. Do this directly over the sample because they tend to be irregular and even slightly different sizes from one to another.

Pin your back wrong sides together to your sample and sew all the way around the edge. The rug samples are thick so it’s not going to be the prettiest seam since the needle will jump around a bit ut hopefully no one will be inspecting the back of your pillows.

Now insert your pillow form and you’re done.

It’s Friday, High Five!

Viktigt02Photo via Ikea

It’s Friday guys and I know I’m a little late in posting today but I had an important appointment today that I was hoping would be good news I could share. For the past month, I have been interviewing for a full-time position doing project management for interior remodels with a company I have loved for a very long time. When I first spotted the position I wasn’t even looking to go back to work full time but the job was so perfect and the timing so right I decided to apply.

Well guys, today I got the nod. In just over a week I’m going back to work. This will be big a change for our family since I have been working mostly for myself and setting my own schedule since the kids were born. I have always been the flexible one that worked around everyone else’s needs but this year with my oldest driving and my husband eligible to retire from the military I felt it was the perfect time to do something different. I admit, the change is a little scary. We’ll all have to make adjustments, the kids will have to learn to pitch in a little more and I’ll have to get used to my time not being completely my own but I’m very excited. Fortunately, my husband is super supportive and since he is always my biggest cheerleader he is more than willing to make this work, so here goes. High-Five to the next big chapter!

Here are a few more high-fives for the week…

friday

1. Has anyone been shopping the new limited edition  VIKTIGT collection from Ikea, I’m thinking it might be time to take a drive and grab some of these goodies for myself before it’s too late.

2. If you are a fan of Bravo’s Flipping Out with Jeff Lewis you’ll be excited to know I have tracked down his daily meditation F*ck That: An Honest Meditation. If you are easily offended don’t bother clicking over but I’m pretty sure if you are a Jeff Lewis fan you are not easily offended.

3. I love a great gallery wall and this Apartment Therapy article shares a whole collection of gallery walls in all sorts of arrangements.

4. This cassette coffee table by Taybles has me feeling a little vintage, but that’s okay because I love vintage!

5. Check out Archi-Depot a warehouse museum dedicated to the storage and display of Japanese architectural models, this unique museum that is not only designed to exhibit architectural  has a function to preserve them.

 

Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to meditate!

Thrift Score Thursday No. 126

black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint-pillow-round-

It’s time again for #ThriftScoreThursday and this week my find is pretty colorful. I actually bought this pretty little needlepoint pillow on a trip to Savannah where I did some antiquing with a friend.  The pillow was sitting right in the front of the store on an orange mid-century chair the exact same color as my sofa. My mind said “Hmmm, I think I need this!”

detail-pillow-round-black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint

The details were so amazing I figured it must be vintage maybe 1960’s but I saw the date on it was 1990. Of course, 1990 was 26 years ago so I guess it is vintage.

pillow-round-black-colorful-Vintage-floral-needlepoint-detail

I fell in love with the colors and since I knew exactly where it would go at my house I checked the price. When I saw it was marked down to just $8 there was no question whether to buy it or not.

Now that it’s mine,  it’s looking perfect on my little orange sofa.

Now let’s have a closer look at what you guys found…

Inspired by DIY: Jonathan Adler

DSC01569

It’s time again for the monthly Inspired by DIY Challenge organized by my good friend Jess of Domicile 37. Each month an amazing group of bloggers gets together to create some inspired DIY.  We each find a piece from a store or designer that we find inspiring and create our own version, DIY style. This month’s inspiration is the always hip Jonathan Adler. I chose to DIY the 1948° Five-Piece Dinner Set  which goes for $148 per place setting. My version will come in at a fraction of the cost and in just three easy steps.

modern-tabletop-1948-dinner-set-jonathan-adler

Supplies Needed: (this list contains affiliate links)

I started with these clear glass salad and dinner plates I bought in store at Walmart. They cost $1 for a salad plate and $1.50 for a dinner plate.

DSC01511

Begin by cleaning any smudges or oils off the plates and then lay them face down on a drop cloth. By laying them face down the paint will only be on the back side of the plate so that the eating surface is clean.

DSC01523

Then spray our gold paint into the cap until you see it as a liquid paint inside the cap. (You could probably use other types of gold paint for this step but I like the thin layer spray paint leaves.)

DSC01525

As soon as the liquid appear sling the contents of the cap at the plates to create a splatter effect. You don’t need a ton of paint for this step so start with a small amount and see how it goes. If you’d like, you can practice your splatter technique on a sheet of paper before moving to the plates.  I did one strip of splatter across the salad plates and an all-over splatter pattern for the dinner plates. Don’t sweat this part too much, if you don’t like the pattern or have drips you don’t like you can use the paint thinner to wipe the plates clean and try again.

DSC01527

Allow the gold splatter to dry and then give the back sides of the plates an all-over coat of white spray paint until you can no longer see the gold spatter.

DSC01530

The last step is to flip the plates over and clean off any paint that may have gotten on the front side with paint thinner and a paper towel.

DSC01594

That’s it! Now you’re ready for a Jonathan Adler worthy dinner party.

DSC01591

And if you decide later you want a new look remove the old paint with paint thinner and try again.  FIY: I ran one of these plates through the dishwasher as a test and it came out with a few bubbles so handwash only until you’re ready for a change.

Man Cave Lighting with Lamps Plus

I received complimentary products as compensation for this post from Lamps Plus. All thoughts, opinions, and styling are my own.

Reveal-Man-cave-geometric-lighting-black-mid-century-collected-decor-masculine

It has been a while since I have shared any photos of my husband’s man cave. Since then there have been quite a few changes like new curtains and additions to my husband’s collection but the most dramatic is an amazing new light. You may remember a while back I was lamenting over the terrible boob light that used to be in this space. I had several pendant lights from Lamps Plus picked out and, after much thought, I even decided on one. Unfortunately, my slow decision-making and delay in ordering meant the one I had settled on was no longer available. So, I was back to the drawing board.

replace

And when I went back I settled in the Possini Euro Planet Chrome and Black Pendant Chandelier. This was not one I had even considered the first go round.

Man-cave-geometric-lighting-black-metal-lantern

But I am so glad I made the change.

Man-cave-geometric-lighting-black-mid-century-collected-decor-masculine

The Possini Euro Planet Chandelier fits perfectly in the space and best of all, it is pretty enough for me and masculine enough for my husband.

Man-cave-geometric-lighting-black-metal-lantern-masculine

But that’s not the only “masculine” addition that’s been added to the room… This is where all the boy time happens after all.

So let the games begin…

The gallery walls are growing with new additions to his collection of military portraits

and all sorts of little manly baubles crowd his desk, but it’s his room so he can add all the manliness he wants.

Even if it means a few dead things… I love the vintage antlers we collected in Germany but that badger, not so much.

Scary, huh?

It’s Friday and My Blogiversary, High Five!

DSC00964IG

It’s Friday which means it’s time for a high-five but today I’m going to change things up a bit because this week is the three-year anniversary of Maggie Overby Studios the blog!!!! I can’t believe it’s been that long. Like most things in life, it feels like I started this journey yesterday but it also seems like I’ve been doing this forever. In that time I have learned so much but I know I have so much farther to go.

When I started this blog we had just moved to Germany, I had closed my shop, and moved away from all my family and friends. I didn’t know what I was going to do with myself and since I had considered blogging long ago I figured it was the perfect time to try. I didn’t have a clue, and as I look back at some of those old post I can see that perfectly clear. I was pretty much out there on my own plugging away just trying to figure things out on my own. I took a few online classes trying to up my game but for the most part, it was trial and error. Actually, my very first post was an error, not knowing what I was doing, I published it on accident and I was off…

During my time in Germany, I felt pretty isolated from the rest of the blogging world and even most of my readers who may not relate to the things I was doing in a foreign country. But last August I moved back to the states and the whole game changed. Since returning I have had some amazing opportunities to work with brands and other bloggers. Best of all I have met a group of bloggers who have really opened my eyes to the community that we create together.

A couple of weeks ago I attended my first blog conference which tipped me on edge again. It also made me feel like I was doing everything wrong. The knowledge I gained made me feel like it was a miracle that anyone was reading my blog at all. So many things I would, could and should be doing to get ahead of the competition and get the reader. Techniques for using Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and every other social media out and how to make Google love you. You are overwhelmed, aren’t you?

I have always loved the creative part of blogging. I love the making, the photography, the sharing. The majority of the things you see on this blog I would be doing whether you guys were watching or not. That’s just me. The marketing, the analytics, the pushing hard to compete…not so much. So this week I have been a little off my blogging game trying to sort it all out, and I know I’m not alone. My good friend Cassie of Primitive and Proper has had some similar ponderings in the aftermath of Haven.

So where does this all leave me three years in? Well, not making thousands of dollars a month on ad revenue and sponsored posts like some bloggers do. And that’s okay because today I don’t think that’s my goal, next week or next year it may be but today I am just worried about improving and building on what I started three years ago. I want to share with you projects and products I truly love and continue on my creative journey with those of you who really care. Most of all I’m going to try not to feel bad about that, not to feel inadequate or lesser. It is so easy to compare ourselves to others instead of just bringing our best selves.

So today for my high-five I want to share some of the posts that I am most proud of. If you’ve been with me all along you might enjoy looking back and maybe even notice my improvement over time and if your new, you are getting all the good stuff!

 

DSC00955IG

The first two photos are from my One Room Challenge Master Bedroom which I feel is one of my best all around complete, well photographed, well-documented projects. A year from now I may feel differently but for now, I am so proud of it. It defines my style and represents how I really do things with lots of thrifted furniture and DIY’s that are budget friendly but don’t look cheap. (I hope!)

DSC08015
Finally a Blue Velvet Sofa It’s a blue velvet sofa…need I say more? I just loved the outcome of this project. The photos aren’t my best but this was one of those projects I dreamed up not knowing if it would be a success or failure. So when success means a blue velvet sofa I’m happy!

DSC06246

This Onesie Cupcake Tutorial has been very popular for me on Pinterest but that’s not why I’m proud of it. This project I made for my women’s group at our Military church in Germany to give to female soldiers who were pregnant. The Chaplin had put together a spiritual support group for them and our women’s group catered a breakfast and put together a little gift including my onesie cupcakes. The soldiers were so appreciative of our efforts, some even cried they were so touched. This was such a small gesture that meant so much to them but I see many bloggers able to make even bigger ones like working with women’s shelters or Habitat for Humanities. I think would be so amazing. I am proud that blogging can help me give back and spread the word to encourage others to do the same.

My Comfort Works FRIHETEN Slipcover Review was my very first sponsored post, in exchange for a product review, I received a free custom slipcover for my Ikea Friheten sofa. Besides the fact that I love my slipcover (good for the review,) I also learned a lot from this post. I made a video, worked with a client, did marketing… you always remember your first.

DSC00695

And finally, any and all Thrift Score Thursday Posts. When I started my blog I was sharing Fount it at the Market posts but when I left Germany I also left the amazing markets. With perfect timing my TST co-host, Cassie from Primitive and Proper, Corinna from A Designer At Home and Brynne from The Gathered Home, invited me to join their team and an amazing Instagram community of thrifters. My thrifted goodies made a seamless transition and for that, I am so grateful! These ladies have been a big part of my growth and community this year and I thank them.

Have a great weekend and thank you all for your support,

Maggie

Thrift Score Thursday No. 125

DSC01642

Hello All, it’s time for another addition of #ThriftScoreThursday. Have you guys been out hunting this week? I have to admit, I have been a little slow on the thrift game this week. It seems like this time of year so much is going on and I’m spending so much money in other places that I need to trying to keep my shopping to a minimum and unfortunately, thrifting too. I have tried to be good but that doesn’t mean I could resist entirely.

DSC01633

I had to stop by just one estate sale, which was for a lady who had been a teacher in France. She had a pretty amazing collection of things which surprisingly were mostly Asian inspired.  In all this Asian, I found this one pot that seems to be french art nouveau, though I haven’t been able to figure that out for sure.

DSC01635

The bottom of the pot has some pressed number markings and a handwritten mark, but as much as I have researched I haven’t found out much more.

DSC01640

But none the less, I think the pot is beautiful with its lovely hand painted flowers and the cracks and imperfections of age. For $5 I think it was worth the splurge and for an extra $3 I was able to take home a little of Asia too in my little bamboo stand that suits her perfectly.

It’s Friday, High Five!

Wow guys, I feel like I’m having sensory overload. Last weekend I attended the Haven Conference for design and DIY bloggers and learned so much my brain hurts. I know as a reader you probably don’t really think too much about what goes into blogging. I know I didn’t before I started and even for some time after.  I knew the projects and the photos were important but I never realized how much technology and marketing were behind having a blog that is really successful. I spent this week trying to hash it all out and decide which things I need to implement immediately and which ones can come down the road or not at all.

I loved learning all this inciteful information but most of all I love that this conference gave me the chance to meet some of my blogger friends in person. At the end of this month my blog will be 3 years old and in that time I have met some amazing people who I know only online through texts and comments. This weekend I was able to meet many of these people in person, have real conversations with them, have a drink, hang out and really talk. For me, this was the biggest highlight. It is so easy to buy into online personas where pictures are perfect and imperfections are Photoshopped away but meeting a real person and hearing the real story is priceless. I loved these ladies and feel like I’ve gone home with some new best friends. Hight five to that!

Here are a few more high fives for the week…

friday1. I am always in love with the work of Amber Interiors but this before and after of a nursery turned big girl room is spot on!

2. OMG, this video! Watch as artist Garip Ay creates an interpretation of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ painting using a paper marbling technique. Simply fascinating!

3. Although things are not always neatly organized at my house there is something so satisfying about seeing things that are. If you feel the same you might want to check out Things Organized Neatly: The Art of Arranging the Everyday a coffee table book dedicated entirely to just that.

4. I’m always on the hunt for great lighting but that doesn’t always go together with a tight budget. This week I ran across an amazing fixture that fits both beauty and budget because it is Threshold by Target.

5. If I were headed to the dorms this fall this Igloo retro-inspired mini fridge would be on my must-have list. It is available in pink blue and black at Urban Outfitter


Have a great weekend,

Maggie

Thrift Score Thursday No.124

pink-typewriter-painting-coral-bamboo-nightstand-stripes

Hello my friends, are you ready for another round of #ThriftScoreThursday ? I have scored some cuties this week so I am super excited that Thursday is here and I can share them with all my thrifting peeps.

My first find was this little faux bamboo nightstand that I actually got from a friend. This cutie was actually a thrift score her husband found that never made it out of a guest room closet so she asked me if I wanted it. Hell yeah, anything bamboo is a keeper to me.

faux-bamboo-nightstand-makeover-diy

It was a little rough when I got it but a knew a fun coat of paint would bring her back to life. Inspired by my typewriter painting I did for my daughter’s room, I chose Valspar spray paint (or you could have it mixed) in Passion Pink and I love it.

The other thrift score I wanted to share with you today is this pair of white porcelain giraffes that go perfectly with this piece.

Bohemian Screen Porch in Orange and Blue

bohemian-sunroon-outdoor- plants-screen-porch -blue-orangeI shared a little of the collection I have started for my screen porch update during last week’s  #ThriftScoreThursday so today I thought I’d share a little about where I think I might be headed with this makeover. I’m sure some of you may be wondering why I’ve waited until the end of the summer to get this project underway but here in South Carolina where the summers are super hot the fall and into winter is actually a pleasant time to use the screened in porch so with some time before any cooler weather arrives I thought we would get this room ready for fall cookouts and coffee on the porch. First, let me show you what I have to work with…

l16914b45-m2xd-w640_h480_q80

We have a fully enclosed screen porch addition on the back out house that measures approximately 14′ wide by 11′ deep.

IMG_5167-2

The room is screened on three sides and has a vaulted ceiling with lighting and a ceiling fan. On the opposite wall is the back side of our fireplace with an alcove on either side.

IMG_5166-2

My inspiration for this room started with this Sundance Throw in Pillow Tangerine (affiliate.) I bought some of the fabric over a year ago with no idea what I wanted to do with it but when I ran across some clearance seat cushions that matched it perfectly I knew it would work great for this space.

orange-ikat-rustic-floor-pillows-and-poufs

Here is a shot of the pillow in my existing resin wicker chairs (affiliate link), along with my growing collection of thrifted rattan.

bohemian-sunroon-outdoor- plants-screen-porch

I’m making progress but I think my biggest step in bringing all these pieces together will be choosing a rug. Now I have to decide between my two favorite options, orange

These rug options include affiliate links.

or blue?trellis-rug-blue-sunroon-outdoor-porch

These rug options include affiliate links.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite? I feel like this is the decision that is going to bring it all together so I am a little torn…
