10 Minute Decorating Ideas – Sharpie Art Planter

10 Minute Decorating Ideas – Sharpie Art Planter

Hello fine friends – today I am back with another 10 Minute Decorating Idea – because really, sometimes, all we have is ten minutes to do a little zhushing in our homes.  This time, I sharing another Sharpie Art idea – a Sharpie Art Planter.

And I am pretty sure this will be my last Sharpie Art project for awhile.  I am putting the Sharpie down - for now.

I started with some plain white planters that I found at Ikea.  These were great because they already had lines to keep me straight – but it is not necessary.

My Favorite Decorating Ideas - Trays

My Favorite Decorating Ideas - Trays

 Have you even noticed that there are certain things you do over and over in decorating your home?  A trick or idea that just works so well that you find yourself using it in almost every room?

For me, it is one of my favorite decorating ideas - trays.

Such a simple idea that works so well.

Not only does it work in almost any space, or any surface (even walls), but is a really quick way to make a space work.  In fact, this could be one of my biggest tricks for the ten minuting decorating ideas series I recently started.

So, I thought I would share with you all the ways I use trays in my home.

 I love the texture of this leather-like tray with the nail-head trim.  It is perfect in my living room to group together items like magazines, pictures frames and tchokas.

Ten Minute Decorating ideas – Interchangeable Art

Ten Minute Decorating ideas – Interchangeable Art

Hello sweet friends – today I am sharing a super fun and crazy easy 10 Minute Decorating Idea.  This time we are talking about interchangeable art.

I have been wanting to rework my bookcase shelves forever – they have just not been working for me.  So, instead of being overwhelmed by the whole project, I just did one shelf – actually two.

But this doesn’t need to be a bookcase – it can be on a tabletop, a shelf – or the old fashioned way of on a wall.  The secret is to pick or make a frame that you love – and then change the art out as your mood changes.  It is a perfect way to quickly perk up a room.

Easy Plate Message Board

Easy Plate Message Board

When I shared my first in the series of 10 Minute Decorating Ideas – I had originally planned to include this project – a plate message board.

But then, I realized, it was so easy – it doesn’t even take 10 minutes.

I am big love of leaving messages and the power of words – so why not have a pretty and simple way to leave inspiration, quotes, song lyrics, scripture, or even an apology – right where everyone can see it.

10 Minute Decorating Ideas – In the Kitchen

As we enter further into 2014, my brain is finally starting to kick into gear.

I have several bigger projects in mind – Peanut’s room, a workshop in the garage and finally getting my bedroom how I like it (how I like it is still being determined).

But sometimes, I just want to quickly pull together something.  I want to pull together an area that is lacking or needs a little sprucing up.

So, I thought, I might start a fun new series – 10 minute decorating ideas.  Projects that will take ten minutes or less and will add a little bit of pretty to our lives.

DIY Mason Jar Solar Light

DIY Mason Jar Solar Light

I have a long standing love affair with vintage blue mason jars.

So it only made sense that I would use mason jars to make simple DIY solar lights.

I simply used some ground hooks to hang them around the pool, but they work just as well on a tabletop.
