Zazzle, Customize Anything!

I’ve used Zazzle in the past for business cards and was recently prompted to try it out again with a blogger credit.  Browsing the site, I quickly realized that I could customize anything from fashion items to paper goods and bedroom decor.  So I went on a bit of a limb and created a very girly glam duvet cover.  This first image got rejected because I was using a Chanel image unfortunately.

viewThe 2nd design got approved and though I wish I had decreased the size of the image to make it look more life-sized, it came out great!

I like that it adds a bit of quirkiness to this sort of formal bedroom.  What do you think?

I’m happy with the result especially given the duvet was soooo soft! It’s such a pleasure to snuggle up to this winter!

And did you see that Zazzle is currently having a sitewide 15% off Valentine’s sale with code ‘ ZAZZSENDLOVE’?  I’m going back and customizing some matching mommy and me Valentine’s day tee shirts through Zazzle now!

 

Special thanks goes out to Zazzle for partnering up with me on this post.  As always, all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Keter Kids Playhouse Makeover

Juliet was psyched that daddy bought her a giant playhouse by Keter Kids. I however, was not thrilled with the selection. I was already eyeing beautiful custom teepees on Etsy that would work perfectly with our all-white and neutral living room decor. And he instantaneously squashed all my plans by having unboxed and assembled this gigantic eyesore, leaving Juliet to fall in love and me to desert my fantasies of a beautiful teepee taking its place. This Keter Kids Playhouse seemingly took over our precious living room space and suddenly seemed to take center stage as the new focal point of the room.  So I planned a home makeover.  First we disassembled the parts.  Here is Juliet totally devastated assuming the big bad wolf came by and blew her house down.

Once we reassured her that the house would be put back together soon, we discussed colors.  She screamed “red and yellow” to which I immediately vetoe-ed cuz the last thing I needed was Ronald McDonald’s house to replace this current version.  I replied, “how about black and white?” This time she veto-ed.  We finally decided on white and grey with a glitter sparkle roof.  Below is the before and after.

The after shot is taken during Halloween when we turned her beloved clubhouse into a haunted house.  And voila! She loved it!  (Phew!)

It only took us 12 cans of spray paint and hours of sweating under the summer sun!  Ugh, what a labor of love.  Thank you hubby, for helping me in this seemingly never-ending home makeover.  I do NOT recommend spray painting unless you have the special febreeze type nozzles for easier spraying.  Otherwise, you’ll end up like us unable to pick up a fork or brush your teeth afterwards because your fingers are so weak and shaky.

(She was so proud to help put up the Halloween decor with me).

Now she parks her car next to the house with pride.
