Hi Everyone, today we are in Zari's room and muffin is also joining us. I wanted to make an adorable idea I saw about how to build a toy organizer for Zari's toys using Dollar Tree buckets! It looks really cute and works so well as well. Each compartment is for different toys and keeps things very organized. I decided to build the pyramid from 6 buckets and have three levels but you can build it as high as you would like. So are you ready to DIY? Here we go. For this project all you need are a few colored baskets from the dollar store and sharped edged object to make holes, and zipties to secure the buckets to one another. Projects with convenient items that you can just pick up at a local dollar store are my favorites!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
Our master bedroom closet doors were an old oak stain wood and just all around cheap-looking. Last summer I painted all our trim white and for the last year I just kept the closet doors off. This year I decided it was time to revamp the doors and bring some classy style to my master bedroom space.
Coming soon on Hometalk: Want to take your skills to the next level? Starting next month, I'll be offering one-on-one guidance for your project so you can become the expert! Learn more.I'm so excited to share this project! I'm all about making nice things out of questionable materials and supplies, and I can't sew to save my life, so this drop cloth bedskirt is right up my alley. I'm in the market for a new quilt/comforter so that will come in due time, but in the meantime, I HAD to change my bedskirt. My sweet mother-in-law gave me a hand-me-down eyelet bedskirt a few years ago just because I needed one and didn't want to go out and buy one--it's pretty but doesn't go to the floor like I'd hoped and it really didn't go perfectly with my quilt. So, until I get my next bed cover, I'm much happier with this simple, yet versatile bedskirt I made.
Just a couple of weeks ago I fixed this old bench using wood putty and Dark Walnut stain. Of the three benches my grandparents made that I have this one had taken the biggest beating. But, with just a little elbow grease I had her looking almost like new again. After that I made a no-sew cushion for it complete with tufting and buttons! Check out the post all about it here.Stencil Revolution makes really neat and high quality stencils and they were kind enough to offer me two! My first post using one of their stencils was my Mother’s Day sign using their Greatest Mom in all the Land stencil. The other one I chose was this Country Fresh Produce stencil.
I was given this ugly duckling when my aunt and uncle were downsizing. It was built for them around 1950. I've never seen one like it, with the drawer on the bottom. After months of staring at it I decided to do something with it. It was taking up valuable space in my small studio. Not that's it's done, I'm not sure I can part with it. It is one of the prettiest pieces I have ever done. I hope you like it.
I love it when people ask me if I can make them something that I’ve never made before. I hardly ever think I can’t make that. Instead, I think how can I make that? Case in point: my friend Beth asked if I could make her a cork board. I’ve never made a cork board before but of course I said yes!Beth has a successful career in the fashion industry and she needed somewhere to pin up samples and orders at her desk. She had been taping things to the wall behind her desk which resulted in the paint slowly chipping away (not quite the inspiring workplace view she was hoping for).
My daughters closet has been gutted, the walls have been painted with chalkboard paint, now it is time for storage and lighting...
Get creative with how you use your closet space by repurposing it for a different need, such as an office or a crafts station. A small space, like a closet, can go a long way and it's becoming more common to turn it into a small office or "cloffices". A wall pattern can give this tiny nook a dose of character and style. Wall stencils are often preferred over wallpaper because they are easier to apply and much more affordable. Let's take a look at a closet turned office space using a popular stencil design.
I know that ceiling fans are a no-no for decorators, but y'all know that in real life people use them.
Ceiling fans follow me everywhere. We have had them in each and every house that we have owned. Sadly, in each house they were either not our style, or they were the white bottom of the price range fan ( see below) and we have had to change them out for something a bit nicer. I have spent hundreds of dollars just updating ceiling fans.
Nowadays there are so many different ways to brighten up a room, both literally and figuratively. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with lights in general and for this project, I feel like it made the whole feel of the room so much cozier and welcoming. My good friend Jen let me take over her younger daughter's nursery/room (she's 18 months) to do this easy headboard alternative project and I'm so happy with how it turned out!
In this project, I turned seven standard kitchen cabinets from IKEA into a platform bed for my daughter. The total cost was around $480 for the cabinets, lumber and supplies - not including the bedding, which she already had. There is a huge storage area under the mattress which is accessed through one of the cabinets that has no back.
I've always had a thing for tents, tee pees, forts and hideaways. And there is something so magical about a beautiful canopy that drapes over a bed. This version is extremely easy to make using a hula hoop and some sheer curtain panels. I added playful pom pom trim to mine for a special touch. Give it a try and have sweet dreams under your beautiful canopy!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

Nothing is worst than being super frugal, yet having such expensive taste.
I have wanted a gorgeous diamond tufted headboard for years without any hope of every owning one...that is until I made one myself!
With a slew of clever budget saving tricks, I spent UNDER $50 to make this gorgeous knock off.
Okay, so I have to admit, I have A LOT of shoes. I'm not the type to put away my summer shoes during winter, because you never know when you need a pair of flip flops or open-toe heels during the colder months (call me crazy but I don't stick with the close-toe heel rule...if there is one). Because I don't put away my summer shoes, coupled with the fact that I have a ridiculously small closet, it can look like a hot mess with the quickness. My closet is in my son's room, so even if I line my shoes up nicely, he eventually gets in there and messes them up. Hence, my need for a solution!
Like most older split-level homes, our master bedroom is very small. It makes me crack up to even call it a master bedroom, given its size. Although our bedroom before our recent overhaul wasn't terrible looking, it was definitely "Plain Jane." It’s like we tried updating the room but never quite made it to the finish line.
After 13 years in our home, the time had finally come to take on the process of designing our dream master bathroom and bedroom! We basically left the same footprint of the bathroom, but made the shower larger (48" X 48") with a Kohler shower pan and removed the corner Jacuzzi tub. In the bedroom just painted the walls, ceiling, doors, trim, new hardware and installed new floors. We constructed the shower with 12" X 24" porcelain tiles, complete with mosaic glass accent tiles in the niche and a decorative 5" trim stripe, edged with a 3" X 6" bullnose tile. A frameless glass pivot shower door by Kohler was the finishing touch to our gorgeous new shower! We installed a drop in soaking tub (5' X 26" soaking depth) with a sleek overflow drain. Mirrored the look of the shower on the tub by using 6" X 24" tile and and a 3" glass mosaic decorative stripe, edged and topped with the bullnose. We had a custom 34 1/2" tall X 65" dark Charcoal stained vanity made, topped with Delicatus White Granite. We chose double rectangle, under mounted sinks. I went with a frameless beveled 42" X 60" mirror and a modern five light single bar style light fixture, with clear glass bell globes above the vanity. Upgraded the toilet to an elongated, raised height one by Kohler (the Elmbrook model). Installed a Home Netwerks bluetooth speaker exhaust fan, with built in LED light and a blue night light ring. All faucets are made by Moen, in the USA (vanity, shower and tub) as well are all of the wall accessories (towel rings, double towel rod, robe hook and toilet paper holder). There are so many brands on the market, we decided to limit our options and since Moen products are made in America, decision made!! We were very happy with the selections they have to offer. We chose to use the Danbury and the Hensley brushed nickel, spot resistant collections. However, the shower head is Moen Attract 26008SRN Magnetix and the PosiTemp shower trim kit is Moen from the Brantford collection (it's the handle and plate you turn the shower water on/off with ...and the ONLY thing I would change with this whole project!) LED soft white light bulbs were used for the ceiling fan, vanity light and recessed lighting (with dimmer switches). We also put in a fan control switch at the receptacle box for the ceiling fan in our bedroom, no more climbing on the bed to change the speed of the fan. We used Sherwin Williams paint for the walls in Dovetail (Eggshell), the trim and doors are in Mindful Gray (Satin). To close the project out we had waterproof LVP flooring laid in both rooms. We are thrilled with the results! I absolutely LOVE our new bathroom and bedroom sanctuary! We purchased everything at The Home Depot except the following; vanity and hardware, granite, sinks, vanity light, mirror, shower door and the flooring. Thank you for looking at our pictures and leaving any feedback. I hope you enjoy looking at the results as much as I do Here's a few before, after and completed room pictures below. I will be posting a full album with many more pictures on my Pinterest and Instagram soon.
