My husband and I just finished a fantastic furniture flip on an old dresser we found in a dumpster full of furniture. It was a lot of work, but we couldn't be happier with the results! You can see the total transformation on our blog.
It is so much fun to step out of the box. You may have seen my post with the other metal tub I did. I had another metal tub so I decided to do another one. Very easy and lots of fun! All
you need is to drill some small holes in the bottom for drainage. Put your dirt in and plant your flowers...You can step out of the box and place a yard solar light in it. You can also take some lawn decorations and place in it. I used a Fairy figurine I already had. It also gives it an added touch to stencil any kind of words or sayings you may like in the front of the tub!
I love how versatile Mod Podge is. I've used it on metal, wood and plastic, but never on glass...until now. I found some printable labels and made these vintage-looking apothecary jars
out of spice jars to store bathroom items to keep by the sink. It was an easy and inexpensive way to add cute and colorful storage for our guest bathroom. The link to the printable labels and full tutorial can be found in the link below.
We installed beveled subway tile on sheets in our bathroom. It is a fairly easy tile job, but more labor intensive than the slate tile floor I posted.
We had to install and tape the cement board. That was fairly easy. Measure and cut with a utility knife, tape, and screw on.
We arranged the tile on the floor to plan the pattern. I lined up the pattern with the bead-board plank wall.
We started in the corner because of the window.
We rented a wet-saw from Home Depot, but we waited until we had to make the cuts, so we only had to rent it for one day. The saw worked well, but not on small cuts; tiles shattered. So we then purchase da ten dollar tile cutter for the smallest pieces.
Tip 1!!!! The mastix has to be white when one installs glass tile otherwise its true color won't show.
Tip 2!!! A big sponge and a large bucket is great for washing off the grout.
Once the grout has dried for a couple of days, seal it. The water will bead on the tile and it will stay nice for a long time! Reseal every six months or when you notice that the water is no longer beading.
My stove burners get absolutely disgusting. Sealing them up with a tiny bit of pure ammonia makes it possible to just wipe clean with a sponge. #SpringCleaning http://www.thevspotblog.com/2011/07/cleaning...
These DIY Garden Globes are the perfect addition to any patio. Hang them from trees, wrap them with lights, use them to make a topiary or leave them as is. No matter which way you decide, they are beautiful!
