DIY The Room
Recreate the bedroom of Miss Piggy from The Muppets in #DIYTheRoomMeredith with Meredith from The Papery Craftery.
Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by The Muppets. I love the craftsmanship of all the puppets and their unique personalities, especially Miss Piggy. She is so over-the-top and dramatic; very much the opposite of me. With this room, I'm indulging my ultra-girly side to make it perfect for this diva. I've chosen soft fabrics, a glam mirror, lots of pink and a bit of gold. Plus, a few adorable plush doughnuts, because this lady loves her sweets!
Sheila puts together the decor in #DIYTheRoom for her dream home.
've chosen things I would like to make for my own house. But only in my dreams, because my husband and i have very different tastes. Im all about colour and pattern and he isnt! I chose the crystal hanger because i love it and i do have things like this in my office/craft room. The boho ottoman is because my own is threadbare and needs to be replaced. The side tables would be perfect next to my armchair, which would be decorated with the cushions....again lots of colour and pattern. I bought some lovely carved oak dining chairs off Ebay but the have dull green velvet seats so I need to reupholster them. I am short so use a footdtool to reach high shelves al the time. The soap dish is for my husband to make. I bought him a carving and whittling set last Christmas and he's hardly used it! The desk organiser is for me. The fact that it has multiple layers is ideal because it gives more storage space and the thread organiser will stop my threads becoming tangled in my sewing box.
Recreate the bedroom of Jane Austen in #DIYTheRoom with Kristin from Perfectly DeStressed.
I am a lover of literary classics. Jane Austen is one of my most beloved authors. Her books are charming and witty. When I think of what her personal spaces would have looked like, I imagine them as being very romantic and fancy, full of floral whimsy and many books piled in baskets and stacked in misshapen piles. I picture a quaint room with dreamy character.
Create the perfect room for your cat in #DIYTheRoom with Sophia aka The Dark Vixen.
Cats are amazing. They don’t judge us at all. They comfort us greatly when where sad, whether with a reassuring lick or a rub of the head. They give us so much yet need so little. Here are some projects I’ve chosen inspired by cats that you can make in celebration of these cute and loving creatures.
Recreate Frida Kahlo's bedroom in #DIYTheRoom with Shannan from Bobbin & Fred.
Frida Kahlo’s face is everywhere! We’ve all seen her adorned in flowers, unibrow and moustache on proud display in defiance of our Western ideals of femininity, but how many of us have ventured into her home to see how she lived? A virtual tour round Frida’s summer home, La Casa Azul (the Blue House), shows a riot of colour, pattern and natural woods. It’s a beautiful space and one I wanted to honour and add to. I think Frida would’ve loved the modern craft movement and, although we can see how her bedroom looked back in the 50s, this is how I imagine it might look today. I’ve included splashes of the vibrant colours Frida already has in her home, large blooms she decorated her hair with so why not her lampshades and, even a miniature marionette theatre because Frida used to make her own puppets as well as paint! Frida learned to paint from her bed and was often confined to it for months at a time so I’ve added a crochet quilt, comfy Mexican look cushion, vases for her paintbrushes and, a jewellery display. Frida had a beautiful view into her garden from her bed, so I couldn’t resist adding some mosaic pot plants. I love these warm, homely touches that evoke a sense of Mexico and La Casa Azul and hope Frida would have done too.

Create a cosy baby's nursery in #DIYTheRoom with Maro from Akamatra.
If I could get my 16 month old daughter to sleep in her own room, this is what it would look like. Filled with crochet and knit fluffy things, colorful paintings and lots (lots and lots) of storage! And a colossal squid, cause everyone needs a squid in their room!
Create a DIY Craft Room in #DIYTheRoom with Renee.
My dream craft room would be organized and cozy! I love to be able to find what I need, when I need it, and cozy enough for a bit of inspiration! Im a sucker for pretty papers and these organizers would be a perfect way to use them. Now I have to get going and make some of this stuff!!
Recreate the room of Edward Scissorhands in #DIYTheRoom with Catherine.
