Hi everyone! Welcome to my garden. I grow vegetables in raised beds since it is more convenient, useful, and attractive. Raised garden beds can be quite expensive, so I want to show you how you can make your own raised garden beds from pallets!You might have heard that pallet wood isn't safe to use for garden beds where you will be planting vegetables. Here is what you should look for. There should be a stamp on the side of the pallet showing how the wood has been treated. The only one you have to be wary of is MB (which stands for methyl bromide), since the chemical in it can leach in to the food.
Today was one of the first truly spring like days in NYC so I decided to do some planting. A pallet makes for a great huge planter for those who (like me) don't have a yard where they can do lots of planting. It is also great for those who are looking for a vertical garden. Add some landscape fabric to a pallet, pour in some dirt and get to planting! This pallet garden will spruce up any drab space!
Have on old chair you don't want anymore? Before tossing it out you might want to consider repurposing it into a shelf! A ladder back chair makes for a perfect towel holder, while the seat works as a great storage space! This chair turned shelf works great in a bathroom or kitchen and can be made with a few quick steps! By simply cutting the chair a bit and adding some hanging hooks, you can create a fun and unique shelf!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.
Sometimes furniture just needs a little face lift. And sometimes you need that dresser or nightstand to be just a little taller. We've got you covered!In the past we have added legs to so many different things. But it never has been easy. Until we came across this sweet little tool!
I hate throwing away the nice jars and lids from the candles I burn in my home. So I came up with a way to revitalize them into something pretty to hold gifts or sit on the shelf for storage. I am a constant DIY'er so I have most items around the house to do this project.
I am an avid repurposer and love when my customers think outside of the box. This Idea blew the box up!
One day I was talking with one of my paint customers and she wanted something for her cats to climb on to get to her big window.
I save things. Well, not everything, but things that I think might be used for a future project of some kind. This project consisted of an old dresser drawer, legs from an old Hollywood Regency table, bun feet from an old sofa, glass drawer pulls, a precut wood "headboard" and a small gold leafed mirror.
What better feeling is there than to make something out of something you got free? Okay, so it does mean I pulled over onto the side of the road to pick through someone's garbage, but I have no pride. No, really, I don't. ;)
I've seen many drawer projects here at Hometalk, and everywhere else online and when I spotted two drawers in a pile of rubbish, I had to grab them. They were pretty disgusting, but nothing some cleaning couldn't change. I decided to turn one of them into a pet bed. Here is what I did. I hope you find ideas for any spare drawers you may have in your home, or your friends' homes, or you know, the garbage somewhere ... don't knock it 'til you try it!
An old dresser drawer makes for a great dog bed. Just ask Rosie. Add a parasol for a bit of shade (and fun).
After doing a lot of reading lately on the benefits of house plants in your home, I've been determined to find a way to display them. I love this idea for a plant stand because not only is it extremely budget-friendly and easy to make, but it is seriously trendy and matched the modern decor of my home. If something screams geometric, than I'm all over it! Give this easy planter a try for yourself and start breathing in all of that fresh air from your new house plants.
Hey guys! My collection of stuff waiting to be repurposed has grown to the point of overflowing out of my guest bedroom closet into my guest bedroom. I needed to take action or else I was going to have to get rid of some of it or find another place to store it until I figure out what to do with it all.I’ve wanted to make my own DIY’ed tiered tray for a while now, so this was the perfect opportunity to repurpose some of my collection and put it to good use!
Terra cotta pots are a staple of outdoor gardening, but let’s face it, they can be a little dull. While there are many ways you can dress them up, here is a painting technique that creates a marbleized pattern thanks to good ol’ shaving cream.
If you can't get enough of cute flowerpots, then this DIY project is for you! It involves not one, not two, but three! Get ready to draw attention to your front porch!
This planter gave my front steps the perfect amount of "oomph" it needed. Not only does it allow me to display a variety of beautiful flowers at the same time, but the pots are so bright and cheerful as well. My neighbors can't help but smile when they pass by my house now.
