Making a side table without power tools sounds kinda crazy, right? This project takes zero power tools, less than 30 minutes of hands on work and is super simple. And bonus – it’s a piece that we still use every single day. Want to make your own side table? It only take a few supplies (and I bet you already have some of them on hand!)
So some of you may have seen my post in the early summer where I created a solar light using a flower collar. I love creating different things for my solar light edison bulbs from season to season. I was inspired once again after I finished my recent post making pumpkins out of metal strapping to create my solar light using the same material. It appears owls are very popular in fall decor, they seem to be on everything so I took my inspiration from that.
If you live in a semi-arrid or desert region perhaps you have dreamed of a sharp looking yard with some succulent plants. This yard should inspire you with some ideas of your own! For around $100 you too can have a lovely yard, though it be small and located in a desert! The cost will depend on the cost of the retaining wall stones combined with your own tools and labor. In our area the wall stones can be bought at home improvement stores for about $1 each.
Stop! Don't throw away old garden pots because they have seen better days! I love using what I have! These pots are the lightweight resin material. This process would work on other pots as well. It has been over a month and they still look great! It really brightens the entrance to our screened porch! Don't have Annie Sloan Chalk Paint? You could use regular spray paint for outdoors as well.
Curious how you can cut glass at home? Need to find a use for your old beer bottles? Or ever get inspired to want to decorate with some? Well now you can! I am showing you how to cut (not perfectly but still) beer bottles and turn them into DIY decor or a gift option. You probably have all of this laying around your house (minus the wax and wicks). Happy DIY'ing babes xx.
I used up all the oyster sauce the last time I cooked and as I was about to throw it in the recycling bin, I figured it had a really nice form. So I placed it aside first and when I was ready to work on some DIY, I repurposed this sleek looking bottle.
I’m pretty sure you have some nice looking bottle of sauce in your pantry, so when you use up all the contents do not throw it just yet, give this diy a try.
Have an old birdbath that could use a face lift? Here's an easy way to add some color to your garden and recycle some of those old DVDs too! (PLEASE NOTE: I've had a lot of people mention CDs, which were NOT used for this project. I used DVDs, which will give you a different result.) Be sure to stop by my blog so you can get all the details on the products and methods I used. Before you know it, you'll be creating some stunning artwork for your garden too!
I had a bunch of keys I saved over the years. I just hated to throw them away. ( I know who saves keys? ) on one of my treasure hunts to the thrift shop. I found a wire basket. and then the big light bulb moment popped into my head! a Key wind chime is what I needed for my screened in porch! I had some artificial flowers around the house that needed a home. I stopped by the dollar store and picked up some green ribbon & brown yarn and a coco basket. took them home and made my key wind chime. I first made it with the green ribbon then made it again with the brown yarn.
I've always loved the look of lockers, but have never been lucky enough to find a set that was in good condition and reasonably priced. The ones I am able to find are either the wrong size, too rusted or too expensive. So, I decided to improvise and make my own lockers using large wood crates. Find the full step by step tutorial HERE!
