If Jigsaw and Lladro were to have afternoon high tea together at The Savoy, I bet they would burp out something like this.  Seriously, this is pretty awesome just because of the shock factor. I’m not one for blood and gore, but GODDAMN! this is awesome. I mean, the ladies are so dainty, yet they are carrying their brains like a basket of fresh baked scones. Artist Jessica Harrison is behind these masterpieces. Be sure to check her site for more fupe artwork like furniture sprouting pubic hair. It’s like a Clarence Thomas /Anita Hill fest, but alas no Coke can. Anywho, this would be perfect in my dining room next to the Mark Ryden art.

LunaBlocks has taken a childhood delight and made it into an interior decorator’s nightmare! Seriously, every interior decorator I meet wants to transform every place into a Z Gallerie showroom. Ugh. The best part of these blocks is that you can make your own combinations to make the furniture of your childhood dreams! Each brick is about $20, so it’s not that cheap, but still well worth it if you have a passion for Legos. I like the tables the best and I would make all the bricks pink and black for a Barbie boudoir effect!

Designer Nikki of WhiMSY love is my new favorite designer! She took a bunch of moving boxes and made these trompe l’oeil pieces of furniture for one of her visiting guests. This mildew-riffic basement (it looks like it could smell of mothballs and grandma) was turned into a Parisian penthouse! Ok, not really, but it looks pretty awesome. She cut out a headboard, side table with vase, a picture frame, lamp, a clock, and used a box as a nightstand. Then, she painted it with black paint and made it fancy and stuff. Then she added an air mattress and some pillows. Her guests have it pretty good- I stick my guests in my walk-in closet and call it a day.

Get Simply Spray! My loveseat was white with a touch of  cat piss here and there and I decided to something about it. Since I am terrible at re-upholstering and also lazy, I decided a spray paint would fit into my schedule. As you can see above, the afternoon of crafts was well worth it! I used about 4 cans of Simply Spray-Poppy Red fabric paint ( apparently, there is one specific for upholstery, but I accidentally used the one for apparel- still came out good!) to do the entire loveseat. It only took me an hour (barely) and dried within a couple hours! I was afraid the red would be like Chinese restaurant red, but it actually came out pink! Pink is my favorite! You’d think the fabric becomes stiff, but it doesn’t. I also went ahead and spray painted the wood gold ( paint for wood) because I’m tacky like that. I am very pleased with the outcome and recommend Simply Spray … I’m going to play around with the other colors for apparel and let you know what kind of fupeness I can come up with. Stay tuned.

Check out Simply Spray’s site– Available at Michael’s and other craft stores.

And…It’s the ONLY non-toxic, non-flammable aerosol fabric paints! That’s cool.
