Quick Design DIY – Freshen Up A Doorway

This project will take you NO time at all and is inexpensive!  Dress up a doorway with any shower curtain you can get on the market!

What you need:

Metal (or wood) Dowel Rod

2-3 Screw Hooks (?)

1 Dollar Store (or any) shower curtain with button holes for shower curtain hooks

How to do it:

Measure your doorway and pick the appropriate size dowel rod for it.

Hold dowel rod over doorway and center – placing dowel approximately 3″ above the door frame.

Mark 2 inches in from either end – this is where you will place your screw hooks.

Screw hooks into wall with the loop facing up towards ceiling to cup the dowel rod.

Run the dowel rod through the shower curtain button holes (where you’d usually put hooks)

Hang curtain by placing the dowel rod in the hooks.   Voila!

You can get creative and make a tieback with ribbon, string, rope etc by putting nails or tacks in the wall to hold back, or purchase curtain tiebacks from Lowes, etc if you want to spend a few extra dollars.  Have fun with it!

Chevron fabric is Christina’s all time favorite – there’s just something about the crisp zig-zag lines that drives her wild!

We can make any of our purses, totes, etc using the chevron fabrics, and there are lots of colors to choose from!  There are some new Chevron’s that we will be offering in August – see list below!   If there is a specific color that you are looking for but do not see it here, let us know and we’ll do our best to find it!!

Who needs surround sound? Grab a mug!

Ok, stop looking at the title of this blog entry like we’ve gone and lost our minds…I assure you, we haven’t (yet haha) so please, read on!  🙂

Want to fill your room with the sound of music from your iPhone, iPod, MP3 player, etc but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a speaker system or dock?  Well have we got a solution for you!  After experimenting with many different types of cups, glasses, and so forth – a fantastic discovery has been made!  Putting your device into an empty, clean coffee mug gives you the BEST and LOUDEST sound quality out of all the different ones we tested!

The original idea came from Pinterest of course!  A coffee mug seems to do an even better job at amplifying the sound than an ordinary glass or cylindrical container.  Try it for yourself and let us know what you find works best for you! 😉

Please make sure your glass is clean, dry,  and empty before adding your device.
