There's a view of an upstair hallway ceiling from the entryway of my house. I made this view epic with some old pallets, stripes and IKEA light bulbs.
With the price of lumber so high I went through my scrap pile of wood so I could build our new cat his own getaway. I gathered a lot of ideas of what I wanted, measured the walls, and started building. At the end of this post is a video I made showing the whole process.
Come see my old wooden TV cabinet makeover. This project turned out SO good and it is the perfect DIY toy storage cabinet for decluttering!
I was so excited about entering the September Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest sponsored by General Finishes that I didn't pay much attention to this month's theme: Geometric Design. Geometric? As in Geometry. I don't know a hypotenuse from a hole in the ground! Here's my No Math, No Measure method for designing a cool geometric pattern onto furniture in 5 easy steps.
Are you hoarding a bunch of generic vases in your cabinet? You know...the ones you get with floral arrangements? You do not really use them because they are not pretty and don't match your decor, but you can't get rid of them! Use some things you already have on hand to make them pretty!
This month's Fab Furniture Flippin Contest theme is GEOMETRIC. When I found this sweet little table for $7.99 at my local thrift store, I thought that the uniquely shaped table top would be perfect for this theme.
Home decor trends have been strongly rooted in geometric shapes and patterns for a while now. We adore this trend, even for our own homes. The lines are clean, bold and simple. It's a great way to make a room feel current and well dressed. Even if it is just some geometric patterned throw pillows! This quick DIY is a great way to dive into a current trend with little expense. The beauty of it is you only have to do one wall, and randomness in pattern makes it easier AND more visually appealing. It kind of makes you feel like a kid again! Original Blog Post
I've seen painted floors online and thought they were so creative. Why not paint- if you already hate the floor, and want to replace it someday anyway? So that's the story with this floor.
This was such great transformation, and we aren't done yet! Don't forget to follow me to see the next DIY we do on this fireplace. We will be putting together a wood mantel that can just slip over the existing one!In the mean time, I hope you get a better understanding on how you can recreate this for yourself. The supply list is long, but I promise it is a easier DIY then you think.
We don’t have a huge home, so it’s important that we make use of every room. We initially had an extra room that was a guest room and with having guests maybe once a year, it was a waste of space. I decided that it would be better transformed into a playroom/ guest room. This blog post is showing you how I added a fun accent wall.
This project was done in collaboration with Zibra Paint Brushes. I love buffalo checks! They give such a homey feel to any space. I have been wanting to add a buffalo check wall to my dining room, but the rolls of removable wallpaper are quite expensive! Plus, we have lived in too many houses that were done in the 90’s. The word wallpaper makes my husband revolt! So, I decided that painting them would be a good option. This post also includes a video! Be sure to check it out, so you can see a time lapse of the whole project!
In our pool house bathroom, the floor tiles were bland and dated with dirty grout. Since I have never done this before, I wanted to experiment on a bathroom floor that wasn't a primary one - master bedroom, for example. Though a bit time consuming I am extremely happy with the results. To see more about our historic property, click here.
So, I had a pair of nightstands that were destined for the dump. I kept them around for several years with the intention of throwing them out but for some reason I just couldn't part with them. I finally made the decision to give them a second chance!
I have posted recently here on Hometalk about pulling up carpet in our home, and painting the inside front door black. Lots of folks saw our picture shelves in those posts, and wanted to know exactly how we made them. We have these easy-to-make shelves all over our home and love that we don't need to hang the photos and art, and repair holes.Let’s make these!

If you are like me and you like to eat outdoor rather than indoor. It doesn’t matter if you are just having your breakfast alone with the songbirds or a big family gathering. It’s always better outside. But, i found my round 4 chairs faux wicker table quite annoying. It’s small and not my style. For that, we thought about something built from scratch. That way we decided on the style, the size, the color and the BUDGET. The one we want is an 8 to 10 chairs capacity depending of the size of chairs. it’s exactly eight feet long, 42 inches wide and 28 inches high.If you have a small knowledge in working with wood this project is for you. Also if you are used to use the following tools the work gonna be much easier for you. You will use the miter saw, the kreg jig and the drill. We really didn’t use any extraordinary technique or tools to build it.I was inspired by the pottery and barns farmhouse table design. It has a beautiful X brass legs and along board as a table top we added a thin frame all around to bring everything together. For the table top boards we bought a specific wood boards that facilitate the assembly. They can go into each other without leaving any gap. I know how frustrating to get those beautiful X legs done and all the required tools and techniques. Here we did a little trick to have it done. Clever husband hhhh.the general cost of this table is 210 dollars. Did I Said 210$? Yes, that Includes wood boards, screws, stain and protection formula. A judge table like this will cost not less then 800$ from any store. So you are saving a lot here.

I recently acquired an end table from my mother-in-law's home. It was from my husband's father's mother. The end table was in the garage collecting dust for years since she passed in the early 2000s. It was unique in style and had many decorative accents that I thought would be a great DIY chalk paint project I could try with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue chalk paint. Check out how I updated this old and not loved piece.
