the nate show segment!

February 24th, 2012   |   LifeStyle

At long last, the Nate Show segment has aired! I know I’ve been secretive about what the segment was about, but the truth can now be revealed:

My apartment was selected for a House Proud tour. In addition, they asked me to come to the studio in NYC and show everyone how to make three of my popular art pieces in my home. So after the House Proud tour in the video, it cuts to me in the studio with Nate explaining three easy ways to make art for your home.

(For some reason the videoย images can be a bit wonky; sometimes it works fine, sometimes it’s not showing anything. I’ve found going to the link a few times usually does the trick (or try this link).)

If you’d like to see more about the chevron canvas project, please hop over to step-by-step directions.

PS- I was super relieved that he mentioned The Thomas Crown Affairย in the segment, one of my favorite movies of all time. If he had made a reference to just about anything else, I could have totally missed his joke. (Phew.)

  • Lilly

    And I am happy to see you explaining your art pieces, I tried to imitate one of those without success. I thought it was pieces of ceramic or plaster glued on a painted canvas. I visited craft stores looking for a mold to do those plaster figures but they are felt flowers!!
    Would you share the link where you got the template for those felt flowers?


  • This was awesome!!!! You did fantastic. Totally see a talk show in your future! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wasn’t able to watch the show–but you did awesome!!

  • Jess

    Thank you all so much for your encouragement and support on my segement!! I’m thrilled with how it turned out and I’m so thankful.

    Lilly, the felt flower template was found here:

  • You were great!!! you have a fab pad.

  • This is so great! Congrats!

  • Wow, congrats on a great segment! You are a natural! It’s funny because I’ve had your bathroom pinned for a while for the pink and white art and never knew it was yours until a few weeks ago. I LOVE that piece. It actually inspired me to create my own, though I used paint instead of colored tape.

    Here it is:

  • i totally enjoyed your home tour and those fun DIYs — so awesome. congrats on the feature!

  • Loved the segment! Congrats Jess! ๐Ÿ™‚
