DIY vintage decor – french, whimsical, shabby chic aesthetic


hey it’s Jackie and welcome back to my
channel for today’s video I’m very excited to do
something a little bit different I am in my new apartment and I’ve been
decorating for like the past nine months it’s pretty much complete so there
definitely will be and a perfect tour this summer but I wanted to do some
vintage inspired DIYs for my place and thought i’d film them and hopefully you guys
like this video for me and it’s not too random we have some wall art i diy’d
my lamps but I think it turned out really cute and then a memory box slash
display box idea as well so if you enjoyed this video for me it make sure
you give it a thumbs up and let me know what else you’d like to see in the
comments below or what your favorite DIY was and also if you like this whole
style I have going on with all these curls I do have a mini get ready with me
over on my vlog Channel I do have a second channel where I do all of my
travel vlogs and you kind of see it more what my everyday style is like or with
them on a trip what I like to wear and how I like to do my own and makeup and
hair because a lot of my content is inspired by other people so if you want
to get to know me better then I do have that channel and I hope you guys will
check it out and subscribe and anyways that let’s just get started with this
first DIY the first vintage esque DIY is great to
add some character to a blank wall you’ll need a glass frame or a couple of
them I went with bronze and I got mine on sale from Anthropologie over time but
I will have some similar ones a link down below and my first design was using
letters from you guys and some very old letters and envelopes that I kept from
Canadian friends when I briefly lived in Europe for in 2007 so I keep everything
I’ve moved around and the letters did naturally fade and have some wear and
tear which is great but you can always manufacture this with some crumpling
teabags and if you don’t have letters do this with some friends you can each
write each other one and then another cute touch is adding postage stickers
which I found on Etsy I plan the collage and I folded the letters to fit the
shape so I’m not destroying anything that I might want to reopen later and
I’m using double sided tape just sticking each one down you don’t need a
ton of tape as the layers of glass will wedge these in place but it’s nice to
have a little bit more security with the design here i go added in some stickers
and a big thank you to everyone who’s ever sent me a letter when I had a peel
box in Canada I love them wanted to display them and will keep them forever first idea super quick and easy and for
the next frame I have this Paris postcards from papyrus and I’m looking
through to see which one has similar tones to the letters I picked out I use
quite a bit of pink so I added this postcard that has some pink in the sky
I wanted more see-through with this frame and I went with dried flowers that
I ordered from Etsy you could use paper flowers for Michael’s make your own
dried flowers I’m picking these up very gently and creating a border around the
circular frame and this frame is a broken one so again if the glass can be
wedged tight enough you don’t really need adhesive but this one I definitely
did so I use tiny amounts of garlic glue dotted under thicker portions of the
dried flowers and then I’m Grillin gluing the broken part of the frame so
far it’s held up for me if you have a broken frame or one you’ve drifted
that’s just you know not the most secure adding some gorilla glue and making sure
to apply pressure for a minute it’s really gonna make the DIY last using the
gorilla glue under the flowers does make it a bit cloudy in that area but I
honestly really liked the look and yeah I thought it added something kind of
different to it the last one I wanted to do a Polaroid inspired so I have this
phone app called instance and I imported old photos I had from 2007 in Paris and
Italy with my family to fit the traveleurope theme going on you can see
how easy this app is to have a faux Polaroid filter and beams of light and
then I just sent them to CVS to print and cut them out finally I hand wrote the timeframe of
each picture and then to tie the three frames together I added pieces from the
other two frames and there we have it let me know which of the frames is your
favorite I think the Paris postcard and floral frame is the prettiest but the
other two have more sentimental value so I love all three together next up a
memory box I totally wanted to make one of these because Disney movies glorify
these oh my god especially in the movie geek charming which is one of my
favorites if you guys haven’t seen that movie it’s great and I always wanted to
make a box but thankfully no one has passed away in my family so I’m making
my own memories that could maybe be passed down or just a core in your room
to highlight your fav memories I got this wedding dress preserving box
there’s probably a better name for these but Amazon is great to find them and
also Michaels you can get crates for cheaper too and I’m starting with a
double sided tape again putting down some tissue paper as a bit of a border
and then I added my favorite dress that I wore in my favorite place I’ve ever
traveled to Croatia I do have a full log of that experience if you want to see it
Dubrovnik and I added three super cute love letters for my first ever boyfriend
so I’ll always keep those they’re the sweetest and I’m just adding some cord
around them I love getting photos printed but I’m a little too lazy to
make scrapbook or like a photo album so I’m using a notebook from chapters or
Barnes and Noble and I took the spiral journal out and I’m putting these photos
so that they are protected I wrote a little letter to self not like a dear
future me but just a line detailing why I put in each memory
and also cents can be so nostalgic I love the scent maple blondie from a
small Canadian brand so just in case they don’t make these years from now
I’ll have a reminder and then adding some photos and a face chart from the
first sponsorship I ever did with covergirl and flare mag I took this green striped ribbon you
love the texture and vintage look to it and then some lace I didn’t end up using
the brown ribbon on-screen but that’s another really pretty shade to make this
with I never liked how this lampshade had such a crease so I’m with glue
gunning the striped ribbon then overtop the lace make sure you wrap
to the inside so it stays put on the bottom I hot-glued the ribbon
around the base and once it was on there I adjusted it so that it’s sit nice create a bow
I bought this ribbon because of the movie a little princess one of my
all-time favorites and their bows on their hair and looked super similar I
always like to make things that remind me of my other favorite things and glue
that medium-sized bow add a button or a stamp you can get these from papyrus and
then I’m creating mini bows I didn’t even truly make a bow for these little
ones I found it look neater to tie a knot and then loop and glue at the back and then I added a stamp on the last bow
as well and I already have a lot going on in this corner so I didn’t want to go
too overboard but bring in a special touch so here’s a look at the corner of
my room I hope you enjoyed this DIY room or
apartment tech or home decor you should call like and if you did make sure you
give this video a thumbs up and subscribe for more
typically beauty content from me but if you guys did like this video then of
course let me know in the comments and I can come up with some more ideas to
share also one more thing I wanted to let you guys know about so when I got
this bed frame it did have silver little duh what if that was called bullet
things and I really liked gold accents and that’s pretty much my whole place so
I just got a pen from Michael’s and then literally like colored just a little
circle and it worked really well so I will have that product link down below
as well as everything else listed I’ll try to find some similar items for you
guys but you can find most of it at a craft store and this was a lot of fun so
um yeah I think that’s all for me but check out my blog channel if you want to
see more from me and thumbs up subscribe all that jazz I will see you guys in my
next tutorial which is a Lucy Hale video and I think you guys are really gonna
like it I have this cute short bob and make up

  23. Resulta que el doctor de 1966 le dijo a mi madre que yo era varรณn y no mujer entonces a mis 53 aรฑos de vida al ver esta clase de vรญdeos donde Se decora lรกmparas del infierno y cojines muy raros rompiendo cartas y recortando y rayando fotos para ponerlas en cristal llenando las paredes con eso pues no me parece sonriendo como que soy puro pues no me agradรณ de aquello no me gusta ni maquillarse mucho menos orinarme en la calle ni ponerme vestidos de mujer not.

    Thank my lady esta guapรญsima y no ensucie sus paredes gracias
