DIY Watercolor Mug

My most favorite DIY is this tutorial on how to Marble Dipped Mugs. The marbling almost looks like a watercolor. All you need is some nail polish, a mug, warm water and a tooth pick. Best part, it's an easy DIY and takes less then 5 minutes. You can marble anything with nail polish. A mug, vase, Christmas ornament, paper, fingernails. Yes anything! But this tutorial is just how to marble dip mugs. houseofhipsters.com/ House Of Hipsters home decor and DIY blog

For most of last week I was sick and in bed with the most horrendous cold. After fighting it off for two weeks with the boy and kiddos sick as well, my body finally said uncle, you’ve joined the sick club too lady. Trying to make the most of my down time, I of course perused Pinterest! I’ve been meaning to do a quick and easy DIY on the blog and was looking for some inspiration when found this DIY Watercolor Mug project I thought was super cool! I had seen marbling techniques on nails but on household items, it was soooo fresh. That’s when the lightbulb lit up above my head while sipping on tea and honey out of plain white boring mugs. These puppies could use a bit of pep! Let’s hop outta bed and do this! Here we go! How to create a DIY Watercolor Mug!

I Make Emily Henderson Cry

Yep, it’s that time again. Time to show you how the imperfect nooks of disaster in my home make Emily Henderson cry tears of sadness. Today I’m going to feature my guest bedroom dresser. You may remember seeing a picture of it on my to-do list post (and yes, I’m still hacking away at that sucka). This nook is still a work in progress as are most nooks in my home, but let’s just have a gander, shall we?

Gasp. Oh sweet kitten, I would not be surprised if you just fell to the floor in sheer and utter disappointment. Quick, someone help Emily up before she wrinkles that adorable floral pullover! Plus, it might make Charlie cry to see her in such a state. And no one wants to make a baby cry.

Free Printables

So we did another set of printables for you guys. If you missed last month’s, click here. They are in the 5 X 7 format (I’m still working on different sizing options), but I think I you guys SHOULD be able to shrink AND enlarge if you print them with someone like Shutterfly since I gave you a pretty high resolution. So my darlings, are you excited to see what we have for you this month? Excellent!

Here’s the first one, and there’s THREE MORE after the jump!

mid century modern music video

Right before I went to Lollapalooza, Pennyweight posted this video to her blog. First off, the song is pretty jazzy and the 2 cool old dudes dancing…yes, please give me more of that, but what really struck a chord in me was the set design. I LOOOOOVED IT! I kept watching it over and over again and Where’s Waldo-ing more and more pieces that I wanted to snatch up for my own home.

The shelving, the clock on the back wall, the vintage trophies, the desk in the far right corner, the coffee table, the greenery, the taxidermy bird shown in the first second, the brass pineapple (hellloooo lover!), the small side table. Even the weird bunny head is kinda rad if you’re into giant creepy bunny heads and scarring small children for life. Oh, and that black and white rug is pretty amazing as well…get in my house already!

Anyhoo, after getting over the killer set and listening to Jungle’s song Time about 238 times, I decided I really liked the band. Low and behold, they were playing Lolla, and I was fortunate enough to see them live. So thank you Pennyweight for enlightening me. Jungle is one of my new favorite bands, and their album has been on heavy rotation. I hope you enjoy it as much I as do.
