Audrey Hepburn – DIY Inspiration

Do you have a weekend DIY project planned? Have you heard about this Summer Pinterest Challenge? We’ve all been invited to partake by these fabulously creative ladies…

How much fun is this?

So I set out for some inspiration…beyond the throw pillows and TV stand that I wrote about here. Or the DIY project of re-covering the pine chest that was revealed here… what to do, what to do?

When I was searching cyber-land for some cool jewellery storage ideas, this classic image popped up…


Who doesn’t love a little Audrey for inspiration?

Wouldn’t this project be fun to do?


What a great way to re-purpose a jewellery armoire. And who better to showcase on it than the lady that said…



Do you think she’s 40 here? I wonder what she thought about pearls at that age!

And just look at the glam of this table that’s been re-purposed here…


Pretty fabulous isn’t it? Especially the knobs that will sparkle like the chandelier!

Or how about this dresser painted in turquoise blue…


Does it make you think ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ too?

Did you know you can buy this famous image in a decal? And in a range of sizes? Just Google ‘Audrey Hepburn Decals’ and you will find a number of sources to choose from. In fact you can find many image options. You’re not limited to just this one. It makes a DIY project like these much easier to do… unless of course you’re a gifted artist and don’t need the help of a decal!

And this 5×7 wall plaque is another DIY idea…


Crafted by an artist, this piece is for sale, but for the DIYer, decoupage comes to mind!

And so does another famous Audrey line…


I think so too!

As you can see I got a little distracted in my search for DIY ideas! But I love what I stumbled upon in the process 🙂 I’m not sure where this weekend will take me, or if I can come up with something fun and creative for the Summer Pinterest Challenge… What do you think? Is there something here you might do?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love Audrey Hepburn – my daughter is named Audrey, too! I have just recently got on Pinterest. Love it, but still don’t understand all of it and the code of conduct and such. The Summer Challenge sounds fun, but maybe too complicated for me right now 🙂

  2. I’ve always loved this particular image! I’m not quite sure how I could incorporate it into my house though, as my manly-man husband wouldn’t “get it”. Maybe in my art studio, where XY chromosomes rarely venture.

    1. That’s so funny! My Mother-in-law said she wouldn’t have this one in her house because Audrey Hepburn was her husband’s favorite 😉
      I love this image, and I think in your art studio would be fabulous… but be ware, you may find other XY chromosomes appearing at your door if you do!

    1. Hi Angie!
      Thanks so much for pulling this one out of the archives! Has it ever come full circle – who knew then I’d be undertaking the biggest Audrey influenced DIY of my life now? I really appreciate that you brought this one forward!!
