I don’t know how you feel, but I am still not in summer mood yet. I have no big vacation planned in the next few weeks and the weather in Hamburg is rather mixed. At the same time I am craving for a feeling of ease, joy and fun. As I can’t change the weather, I want to bring this feeling inside my home. This is why I prepared 7 DIY projects for the next seven days. Get inspired to #bringsummertoyourhome.

DIY 3D Painting Triangles – Part II

3D Painting, Allgemein, Geometric Paintings, Paintings

For this DIY-Project I got inspired by Søstrene Grene, which is a Danish chain of retail stores that was created by two sisters, Anna and Clara. They just opened a store in Hamburg, where I went last week. The display window succeeded in tempting me going into this shop. You can find various product categories such as interior design, stationery, gift wrapping, crafts, kitchen goods and toys for children. “Common to all products is an elegant and feminine expression that brings beauty to everyday life, while the prices are always kept at a reasonable level.” Perfect match! I bought some drinking straws for my next DIY 3D painting project.
