Gorgeous Genius

I seem to be on a fabric kick lately, but this talented blogger takes my love of fabric and DIY to another level!  For those of you who have never read her blog, you are missing one of my favorite DIY blogs out there- she is out of this world!

Meet Danika of Gorgeous Shiny Things.  This woman can turn anything into gold.  Yes, she is that magical.

See those chair cushions- she made them.  And I mean she MADE the fabric.

See that pillow...yup, made that fabric too.

GENIUS

I have got to get to work making my own!
Fabric, water and some fabric paint- and her directions found HERE

Step 1: wet fabric

 Step 2: paint

Step 3: dry and enjoy

Her genius doesn't stop at just fabric- look at these other jaw-dropping projects:



Faux Malachite Lamp.  Are you kidding with this one?? I'm in LOVE 


I have tomorrow off for Good Friday, so you better believe I am making my supply list today so I can get started on some of Danika's projects. 

Have a nice Easter Weekend everyone!

IN. SANE. I was just googling faux malachite the other day, and it seemed like anything out there indicated it is H.A.R.D.
Totally impressed w/ her skilz. Heading over to see more.

Wow! Really stunning, relatively inexpensive alternative to the rather expensive watercolor fabrics which I've been seeing around.
