How`s your Sunday looks like?

Hello Lovelies, oh boy I had a really busy weekend;)
At first I mounted these planks to the wall, we`ve got from our 
old container as our family emigrated to Germany.
I thought it would be a nice memory for all of us.

Than I was helping my Dad to install the new light fixture,
a sort of strip light for the stairs.

Bought a new rug;)

Painted the trim.
That always get`s kinda messy...

Started to paint a new piece of art for a client.

And now I`m off to enjoy the evening with some good magazine reads;)

So how`s your weekend looks like;)

My own painted DIY "driftwood" table N°2!

Hello Lovelies, today I wanna show you 
the second painted driftwood table I did for my living room.
I used the same technique like in this post here.

But this time I was wearing gloves;)
Okay, here we go now...

From this IKEA table, to a beachy beauty;)
Here it is after a few coats of paint.

And here I gave em the finishing touch, 
the last coat of clear acrylic paint.

That`s how it looks completely finished.

Look who`s hiding right under the table;)
My cat was sleeping there all the time.

And now, drumroll please;)
Here are some staged pix.

How do you like it?

My own painted DIY "driftwood" table!

After I saw these pretty side tables,dining tables and coffee tables,
I decided that I need one too;)
And it would fits perfectly in my new airy space!

For this DIY driftwood painted table I`ve got this tones of Milkpaint.

I saw this paint the first time at Miss Mustard Seed.
Good for me this paint is available in Germany too.
Pretty easy to use and as I think the results are fantastic!

I bought along time ago this little side table and coffee table 
from IKEA.

Nice color, but not "drifted" enough for me;)
Here it is after sanding

and after the first coat of the darker paint.

I sandet it during the each coat.

Next to the table you can see the lighter paint.
I didn`t use so much water for the darker paint and used 
it like chalk to get the dark spots on the wood.

As you can see it here.

And that`s how your hands look like if you don`t wear gloves:)


Okay, here we go, that`s how it looks completely dried.

I really like how it turned out!
Here some little staged pics;)

How do you like my DIY?

Guest post from Arcadian Lighting Blog, Inspired by my Pink Flamingo painting;)

Today`s guest post is from Susi, 
a must-shop resource for beautiful light fixtures
She saw my flamingo painting on this blog post and was inspired to find decor and interiors that played on the subject and palette.
Pink Flamingo Painting
Pudel-Design via
Taking the primary colors of yellow, 
flamingo pink, red, white and gray blue, 
she pulled images that use some or all of these 
in a wide range of rooms and styles. 
Let's see how a painting becomes a room... or even a travel trailer.

Love the yellow buffet in a room of red and white stripes. 
Just like the yellow skirt next to the lifesavers.
The matching drum light fixture is a great touch. 
All this room needs is a flamingo!

This one might be a little bit of a stretch but this wallpaper takes the palette of the painting and turns it into a graphic, 
vintage inspired wallpaper. 
I think the flamingo would look fantastic hanging on this wallpaper.

I love the feminine quality of the painting and think this room captures that same feminine look with vintage touches. 
We Adore the vintage lamp that is sitting on top of the end table.

Poppy red walls,
grey headboard and red and white striped sheets 
with a few yellow accessories 
this room would match the painting perfectly!

Flamingo pink paired with rose red and white on this sofa remind us of the red striped lifesavers and the flamingo in the painting. 
Add a fun and lively yellow ceiling light and this room would definitely match the lovely painting. 
What do you think?

This party decor has a sweet vintage feeling to it. 
Like the painting, 
it is a mix of colors and stripes all balanced with white.

Love the pink flamingo art and flamingo-inspired art, 
along with the little white wall sconce,
mixed with black and white striped chairs and grey fabric on the banquette. Flamingo pink is such a rich color.

Love the vintage feel of this little camper and outdoor breakfast. 
All the colors of the painting are here, 
mixed and matched in a cool vintage style.
