Tutorials: DIY Mid-Century Home Decor


These past few days have been spent cleaning, organizing and making plans for winter projects. This may sound completely insane but I'm in less of  mood to sew clothes lately. I really do want to spend some time making my house a beautiful, fun home. Here are some projects that I've added for my winter diy list. Click the links for the full tutorial for each project.

Give your sofa a 50's style makeover with new legs, button tufting and throw pillows from Our Mid Century
My sofa is a cheap microfiber sectional from Weekends Only. It already has a basic 50's shape and simple little legs so I think some tufted cushions and pillows are in order!

Mid Century inspired wall art using toilet paper tubes from Growing Up Creative You could use some different paint colors and arrange these into interesting shapes for a totally unique, vintage look.
