Quick and easy way to give your boring wall (wherever that is, master bedroom in our case) a quick one day solo makeover!
I needed to finish the kids decoration in my daughter’s bedroom, which had not headboard when we changed her bed.I show you how I finished the first mountain headboard that we made in stratified wood making the snowy peaks and leaving the bottom part in wood, simply varnishing it.It is easy, very easy, even for those who want to do it in 2 colors and not to let the wood look at the bottom does not have any complications.
Everytime I water my hanging flower baskets with coconut liners, I end up with a flooded mess! I don't even think half of the water saturates the roots before it all leaks out onto my front steps. This hack keeps the water in and your planters with the perfect amount of moisture to keep them growing strong! All you need is some burlap and a diaper! Kick those expensive coconut liners to the curb.
It's hard not to love a knockout rose. Disease resistant, profusely blooming, and vigorous growth. Although not entirely necessary a little bit of weekly maintenance goes a long way to make these desirable landscape elements perform even better.
I use knockouts along with annuals on my front steps. They stay there for one summer and then in the fall they are moved elsewhere.
1. I've found that fish and seaweed emulsion (I use Neptune's Harvest 10-30-20) is the best organic fertilizer to encourage as frequent rebloom as possible. ...
Last summer, I made it my mission to create and craft using nothing but items I found on garbage day within a few block perimeter of my house. Unfortunately my mission was prematurely cut short after my craft studio sprang a leak and I no longer had a place to work and store my finds :( I did however, score a few great things before becoming water logged and having to put my projects on hold! It's amazing what you can find kicked to the curb every week. It breaks my heart to see the abundance of waste that goes to landfill when there's much that can be done to breathe a second life in it! As I walked down the street on this particular day, I spotting something in the distance.
I'm sharing with you my favorite way to feed my houseplants. Here's how I use worm compost & compost to nourish my indoor garden plus good things to know about how they work, when to do it & more.
Every morning I when I walk my dog, Toby, I pass a tree that shreds the cutest littlest pinecones. I can't help but stop and pick a few up and pocket them.I have used a couple of these pinecones in the past with some cute upcycled Christmas cloches I made (see here). I decided to use these pinecones in a totally different way and make a lovely fall/Christmas decoration for my mantle.
My neighbours were having a lot of building work done over the summer and, they had a skip(dumpster) outside their house full of lovely bits of scrap wood. I rescued some of this wood and combined it with some old road maps to make some fabulous ornaments for my home.This isn't the first time I've combined maps and wood I made a map printed pallet frame you can see here.

Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.

I had found this old forgotten toolbox at a garage sale and just knew I had to have it, even tho I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time. When I got home, I scoured the internet for inspiration. I saw a picture of a toolbox on the wall that was used to store books. Well, the only walls in my home that are empty are in the bathroom and the lightbulb went off! So here is the easy and quick project I did using that old forgotten toolbox.
On this edition of Workshop Wednesday, we revisited a project we did three years ago. It's still holding strong and is home to a collection of small Lego sets.We realized we never shared the tutorial here in Hometalk. The project lends itself to even novice DIYers. You can see a preview of the shelves at the 2:15 timecode mark. Take a look and then read on to see the tutorial
Before this house, I’d never lived anywhere that had a real mudroom. And although our mudroom is small, I just love it - especially since we've recently revamped it.The first issue we tackled was shoe storage (which, let's face it, you can never have enough of).We started with an ugly little shelving unit that came with our house. Apparently, the old owners didn't want to take it.And actually it fits perfectly between the back door and the mudroom's north wall.
I saw these DIY Christmas balls made from beach balls online and thought they looked easy to make (and they were, thanks to the tutorial). But first I had to go to 1 Target and 2 different Walmarts to find beach balls. I live in FLORIDA people. You’d think every Walmart and Target in this area would have beach balls year round. But, nope! The 2nd Walmart I visited did the trick. I bought 4 balls.
The wall over my couch was just begging for some art. But I'm constantly changing up the frames and art in my home, so I didn't want to hang a large gallery wall and have holes to fill when I wanted a new look.So I decided to build a DIY picture ledge custom to my couch area.
