After two years of struggling with storage space in our existing pantry, we moved the pantry renovation to the top of our "Never ending honey-do-list". We started out with a common
looking pantry with utility wire shelving hidden behind a set of bi-fold doors. But after a little "sweat equity" we transformed the pantry into a custom built-in with adjustable wooden shelves, drawer sliders, and the best part of all, all of the storage that we could ask for! (We're also working on a series of tutorials where we share the plans of how we built the cabinet. Here's the first set of plans: http://www.thediyvillage.com/2013/05/build-a...) #BeforeandAfter#DIY#kitchenpantry
When the thin glass shade to one of our light fixtures cracked, I grabbed a few supplies from around the house and made a new one. ;) Note: this light fixture is rarely ever used due to
French doors and a window in this space as well as the dining room light flooding this small out-of-the way room too. Please take safety into consideration (perhaps low wattage bulbs, never incandescent and a high heat/temp paint or a flameproof coating. See tutorial for link.
I just finished making these sunflowers out of brown paper! They were so easy and are going to be used as party decorations. But these would be beautiful in a little girl's room also! Check out my link below for a detailed tutorial. Thanks.
Don't you just love all of the things you can make and do with Mason jars? I have been wanting Mason jar solar lights since I saw them in a catalog three years ago, but for $40 a jar
there was no way I would allow myself to buy them. I knew I needed to figure out a way to make them myself. I bought some solar lights at the dollar store and was able to come up with my own Mason jar solar lights. Please visit my blog to see all of the details.
