Today I am sharing an easy method to refurbish wood furniture without sanding or stripping the old finish. The dresser I am working on is from the early 1900's and is in very rough shape.
So hiding in the corner of this estate sale was a vintage wooden ironing board. After a few minutes of haggling, the seller was worn down and let it go for $20. I had some idea of what I wanted to do but researched what ideas Hometalk and Pinterest might have. Bunches. With Christmas fast approaching I narrowed my search to Santa. Here is my version.
I love crafting. At some point I realized that it would be easier to convert my empty formal living room area into an actual craft room. So, that's what I did! I removed all the formal hunter green and burgundy wallpaper and replaced it with vibrant colors that made me happy.
Living in a raised ranch can come with some obstacles, but after 2 years of brainstorming, diy's and collecting things I new I wanted for my living and dining room this part of our home is finally coming together nicely. I love adding quirks and uniqueness to my home.
Are you wanting to refresh your living room space for cheap?! Here's the project for you! We’ve had this broken, cheesy electric fireplace for too long and the wife and I wanted something more appealing for the holidays. We totally made it over in a few simple steps. Here’s what I did for about $40!
DIY major project! We have a crack appear in the same spot every year that I have to repair. So, this year I decided to try for a permanent fix. Make a faux brick wall as inexpensive as I can. Major undertaking since it is in a vaulted part of the foyer going up stairs! After a week of backbreaking work, I am happy with the results.
I love decorating for the holidays, but with small children, it can be difficult. My kids, like most, are very curious and love to touch everything they see. It is especially tempting when you put out a bunch of shiny new things, and then have to constantly tell them “no touch”.Here is a fun idea specifically for the kids; one you can encourage them to play with throughout the Christmas season!
Acrylic paint pours are easy to do! You can use whatever colors you like and however many you want too, maybe just two or three or 10! You can also do this to so many different types of materials/objects like furniture, glass, canvas, metal and more! Colorful, easy to create and makes a statement without the price tag !Here are 2 of my latest wall art creations!
Wanted tree to have more than just lights and ornaments. A friend suggested spraying pine cones for filler, I liked th idea if adding pine cones but decided to use white wax and acrylic glitter paint rather than spraying them with spray paint or snow.
Guests are coming and Thanksgiving is only a week away. My dining room needs a new look, STAT! I had purchased two pub style table years ago (they were cheap and I was on a tight budget). Pushed together they make a decent dining room table for when guests come for dinner. But I'm over it. Its plain, and I'm ready for a change...but surprise surprise, I'm still on a tight budget! Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...
I made a batch of these ornaments years ago for a craft fair. Recently, I was inspired to make another batch in the colors that I love for Christmas. That's one of the best parts about this project - customizing it with the colors you love.These ornaments are easy enough to let kids help you in the process, but also they're pretty enough to give as gifts. Most kid crafts aren't exactly gorgeous, ya know.
