Pretty Little Monster House

This blog is dedicated to my new house. Goodbye sanity. DIY projects. Mayhem. Crafts. Blood. Sweat. Tears.

My house is Praying Mantis heaven. I see a new one at least once a day. I finally just decided to keep one, her name is Natasha and she wants nothing to do with the habitat I made for her. All she does is hang upside down from the light!

Make your own glowing shelves and save the “imperfect” wooden planks.

Steps:

#1 - Get the imperfect piece of wood, search for those with cracks, knots and holes

#2 - Buy pigmented resin and mix it for the glowing effect you are looking for

#3 - Tape the bottom of cracks or holes that you wish to give the glowing effect

#4 - Before starting to pour, make sure the surface is perfectly horizontal

#5 - Start pouring the resin mix into the holes; check back after some time to make sure there are no leaks

#6 - Let the resin dry for at least few days before going to the next step

#7 - When it’s all nice and hardened, remove all the tape and start sanding

#8 - When you’re through sanding, cover the wood with about eight or nine coats of oil finish

#9 - After it dries, it’s all ready to use

#10 - Enjoy the glow in the dark effect

Bathroom progress! The walls are painted, the tile is grouted and I finally got that damn light off my dining room table!♡

A bookcase chair or a chair bookcase?

How to make a Latex Mermaid Tail by 

The little girl in me who use to pretend she was a mermaid any time she got into a body of water is very very happy right now!

I’m a big fan of both huge couches and sunken living rooms. Now they’ve started combining them. Sunken couches everywhere!
