DIY Rustic Box

Hello again! The Spring is almost here, well actually not for everyone (sorry Australia) but for those of you who live in Northern Hemisphere – happy Springtime! So spring cleaning is pretty essential part of the Spring but why not give a new and rustic touch to your rooms with some new design elements, such as DIY boxes. If you live in Estonia or anywhere else in Northern Europe you know that tangerines are super popular fruits in Christmastime and that they are often packaged into small wooden boxes. One of these boxes is the one that we used for our DIY box project. And honestly there’s only one thing that you have to do – paint it!

We used black acrylic color that can be used for canvas metal, wood, wall etc. You can choose whatever color you like but we went with simple yet sophisticated black. It is from an Italian company called Maimeri and the color’s precise name is Carbon Black. By the way, we looked from H&M’s website that they offer wooden boxes that look a little similar to the one we made but H&M offers them from 14,99 euros while ours didn’t even cost a half of that price – wooden box itself was “free” since it is actually just packaging and acrylic color cost about 5 euros. So you can achieve an awesome look and practicality for very cheap price and by recycling. You can use this box as storage box or also for growing your own windowsill herbs. We’re sure it’ll look great!

 

Why Blogging is Freaking Hard and DIY Jute Rope Coasters

Hi! Yes, YOU there! Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by!

So this has been the first week of 2017 when we missed one of our publishing day’s. First of all, we’re sorry. It’s kind of hard to keep on posting when there aren’t many readers or engagement on blog. If you’ve ever had a blog you probably know what we’re talking about. Yeah, sometimes it’s hard to find motivation… But like Darren Rowse has said-“If you have just one reader and your blog changes their life your blog is big enough.”

DIY today is pretty self explanatory – you just have to hot glue sisal rope to a spiral and then you have awesome and rustic coasters. Very easy, it probably the easiest and most nailed Pinterest projects we’ve done so far. Do we recommend doing it? Absolutely!

Have a nice one!

What You should do with $10?

Aren’t we all sometimes wasting our money on things that have no practical use or reason? Like that phone case that is shaped like a real banana or that golf course for your bathroom. That last one actually sounds pretty entertaining… Anyway, today’s post is something interesting and different even to Pinterest because we found so few DIY-s about Picture Frame Clocks that we even felt embarrassing on behalf of Pinterest. So we’re here to fix that mistake.

By the way it is relatively easy to make Picture Frame Clock, which made it even weirder that no one really do these, considering they look really beautiful and artsy. And in case you’re wondering, yes, it should only costs you up to $10, if you make a medium-sized clock. It will of course cost you 2 or 4 times more if you want to make a HUGE clock! You can also use an old picture frame and in that case the whole project would cost you only few dollars.

So the things you’ll need are:

  • Picture Frame
  • Quartz Clock Movement Mechanism Kit (Buy from Amazon, Ebay etc)
  • Cardboard
  • Handmade Decorative Paper

+

  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Super Glue
  • Ruler or Tape Measure
  • Pencil

1. Take the picture frame and remove its pack and glass part, you won’t need them. Take a cardboard and cut it out in the shape of the frame. It has to fit to the place where glass and pack part were before. Apply glue to one side of the cardboard with glue stick.2. Put the decorative paper to the glued side of cardboard, be careful not to break the paper. Next turn cardboard to the side that doesn’t have the decorative paper.
3. Set the cardboard into the frame and fixate it with frame’s metal clips.
4.  Measure out and mark the center of the cardboard with ruler and pencil. Poke a hole to the center carefully and make it big enough for clock movement mechanism.
5. Put some super glue to the edges of the hole (not too close to the actual hole though) Place the clock mechanism to the right place and stick the pointy part through the hole.6. Place and assemble the clock movement mechanism as showed on the package (usually mechanism is fixed with a nut and then clock hands are pointed to 12 o’clock, after that you can set the correct time).

It might seem like a lot of work but actually it isn’t! It took us only 10 minutes to make this clock, so you should try to make it yourself too! Perfect for your own home and also as a (housewarming) gift.

3 Homemade BOOST Smoothies

Hi everyone! First of all, yes, we know what your thinking-it’s a little weird to post anything about fresh ice smoothies right now. We’re aware that it’s late February not mid July, so you don’t have to worry about our insanity. Besides, it is summer in Australia, isn’t it? Anyway Australia is actually a very good segway because smoothies that we made are originally from Australian company named Boost. If you have never heard of Boost juice bars then first of all We’re sad in your behalf because their Smoothies are just so amazingly delicious! We’ll add a link here, so that you could check out yourself if there’s a juice bar near to you. By the way we’re not sponsored by them although we totally wish we were 🙂

Of course, you can make your own rip-off versions of their smoothies if you happen to live far from Boost juice bars. We checked it out ourselves and found out that many countries don’t have that awesome company yet. So this post is meant especially for you there!

But now let’s get to the business.

For Strawberry Squeeze you’ll need-

  • 300ml apple juice
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • 200g unflavoured (or strawberry) yoghurt
  • 1 cup ice

For Mango Magic you’ll need-

  • 300ml apple juice
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • 1/4 mango (frozen)
  • 200g unflavoured (or vanilla) yoghurt
  • 1 cup ice

For All Berry Bang, you’ll need-

  • 300ml apple juice
  • 1/4 frozen banana
  • 100g berry mix (strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant)
  • 200g unflavoured (or strawberry) yoghurt
  • 1 cup ice

All recipes serve for 3.

Of course these are not exactly the same or correct recipes that Boost itself uses but they do taste very similar to the real thing! Try them yourself and tell us do they taste similar to the original smoothies.

EASY GARLIC THYME BREADSTICKS

Hi everyone! We’re so happy that you have clicked to our blog and you are so welcome here!

What could be better than homemade tasty and soft breadsticks? Well probably many things but since nothing better comes to my mind right now it must be high on the top. They’re perfect with Italian pasta or soup but they’re just as good without anything else too! The aroma of fresh garlic and thyme makes even the darkest day happier and will give you some Mediterranean sunshine vibe. Besides, it’s very easy to make them!

Ingredients –

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 2 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoon oil
  • Dried thyme or rosemary

Instructions –

  1. Combine half of the flour, instant yeast, sugar, salt and garlic in large bowl.
  2. Add 2 cups of flour and mix. Don’t add too much flour because it would make the dough too dense.
  3. Cover the bowl and let it rise for 30 minutes.
  4. Take the dough out of the bowl and roll it to rectangle on floured counter. Cut out 50 thin trips with knife or pizza cutter.
  5. Take two strips and twist them to rope. Repeat that process with all the other strips as well and place them side by side to baking sheet.
  6. Preheat oven to 425°F or 220°C. Rub oil over breadsticks and then sprinkle them with salt and thyme. Bake for 10 minutes.

Since some people have asked about it we promise that our next post on Friday will be a craft/diy project! See you soon!
