DIY Gold!

I'm all about sharing 'Fast, Cheap & Easy'TM ideas 
that make use of the 'everyday stuff' you have on hand...
giving things a little boost or using them in a new way 
to help you attain Seasonal Style at Home.

Well, when I saw THIS idea on a friend's blog, it was just SO easy and SO perfect

for our seasonal transition from summer to fall
that I contacted him to ask if I could share it here on HOMEWARDfound...
and he said yes!

Michael of Inspired by Charm was inspired by Jan of Poppycock 
who pinned this fun idea for painting kids' magnetic letters with paint -  
and he re-created the idea using very trendy gold paint.
Now if that's not a case of 'making do' with STYLE, I don't know what is!

Head over to Inspired by Charm to see Michael's post

Many thanks for the content of this post go to my friend Michael Wurm, Jr., 
whom I met through our work for FOLK Magazine in 2011 - we were both contributing decor writers back then. 
Though we've never met in person, we've stayed connected online 
and I have followed his exploits with pure amazement at the scope of his talent.

This guy is not only a creative blogger at Inspired by Charm, terrific cook, and former innkeeper

he's ALSO an official Better Homes & Gardens 'Style Spotter' 
and contributing writer to BHG, Homegoods, My Colortopia, and Lowes

Michael has been featured or mentioned by Apartment Therapy, Stylelist Home, Mashable, 
Hello Society, Home Depot, PureHome, CB2, and Martha Stewart!

Michael’s winning design pinboard was chosen in December 2012 as the inspiration for 
the Buick design team in the 'Pinboard to Dashboard' competition
His personalized, stylized Encore was brought to life at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

I guess you could say that Michael is 'driven' to create and inspire...

and he does it very well!

Last fall, Michael was curating a gift selection for 'Lost Crates' [since closed]
and he chose my Original Sweet Sweater Pumpkins as his box contents!
I am just so grateful for his support of me and my products.
