I really like the industrial look, so I came up with a vanity plan that's different from your typical vanity. I raided my dad's barn for some 2x6 tongue-and-groove boards and bought a
stash of galvanized pipe for the legs and supports. It was pretty quick and easy to build, though it did take some time to figure out. I need to find some good baskets to fit on the shelves, and stock up on nicer towels! But we really like the vanity and so far its worked out great. Step by step tutorial on my blog.
I love using everyday materials in fresh new ways... prettifying patio umbrellas is one of them! These feminine and flouncy toppers sit over a refreshment table at one of my Spring market
events, and I could have sold them a hundred times over!! They'd be perfect for a baby or bridal shower, too.
It's easy to transform plain umbrellas this way - click through to my HOMEWARDfound blog post for more info PLUS the link to order your own copy of Creating Vintage Charm Magazine (a print publication) May 2013, where my umbrellas are featured! #SummerStyle#MayProjects
Oh my goodness, you have a new laundry room, too?! I linked here, after viewing the kitchen,
and lady I'm telling you my grass seed my never get planted today. Thanks, again, for sharing such a well displayed remodel and for providing such fantastic ideas (corrugated metal to disguise drop ceiling uglies?!).
Living in Colorado I really needed something to extend our very short growing season. My mom gave us her old sliding glass doors (the back wall/west wall of the cold frame) & I found some
windows cheap at the Re-Store. ($5 each). My husband picked up some spare Tex-decking from a few different people (so they don't match) for free. With hinges (also a Re-store purchase at $ 0.75 each) and we built it on my existing raised garden. Total size is 14'x3'. There is a 18" space behind the cold frame for more plants (probably the squash plants).
We bought good garden dirt from a local materials yard.
I also have enough windows to cover our 6'X3' garden!That is a evening project for the week.
In all the two cold frames with dirt and everything cost us $90! Now I have lots of extra cash to buy more plants :-)
Now the dog can't dig up the plants and eat the drip line either!
