The Holiday decorating season is approaching rapidly and here at Gilbert Marketplace, we are so excited! Today I'll be using some scrap wood I have around to make these beautiful snowmen. Think: recycled wood, and farmhouse style holiday decor. It's my favorite and I'm sharing lots of projects this month- if you're feeling crafty and want to make some gifts follow me!
I had this antique lingerie chest for a few months and when i first saw it, i fell in love! The dainty legs, many drawers and the detailed konbs made this piece move to the top of my project list! I really wanted this one to be unique. I decided to do a design on the drawer fronts and keep it very feminine.
Some of the most common things can make beautiful additions to your outdoor winter decor. Easy to make and will not break the bank to create. All you need is an old tire. You may have some and if you don't any garage will gladly give you used ones for free.
We all know everyone has the power to DIY their home into a space they love, but imagine if cost wasn't a concern at all!Well, with last week's lottery headlines, we couldn't help but ask ourselves every DIYer's #1 pipe-dream question: If you won the lottery, which room in your home would be the first to undergo a renovation?So, what do you think? Tell us which room in the comments below!
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.
A lot of old furniture is damaged in some way, whether it's your own furniture or a piece that you have found for cheap. So let's go through how to repair those chewed up marks, holes, chipping veneer, hardware holes, large scratches, missing corners, or trim. The process is the same no matter what you're trying to repair. But this method is only for painting, as it won't take stain, and it definitely won't blend in with the rest of the wood on your project. But once you paint it, no one will see the difference.
These pumpkins are so cute. They are super versatile and take under an hour to make.Depending on the size and the amount of pumpkins you do this project can take you from 20 minutes to 2 hours to make. (not including setting times) A small 6″ pumpkin will be in the 20 minute range. Take into consideration that I mixed my concrete in small batches by hand (with a metal spoon). So it took a bit longer than if I would of had a mixing attachment to help mix my concrete. I’m sure that would shorten my projects time almost in half.Total Cost : $17-$20.(price may very. Depending on what you already have at home. My pumpkins cost me around $17 to make)

I have loved Miles Redd ever since I saw his spaces featured in Domino magazine years ago. I mean, the man is brilliant. I love his Deconstructed Stripe fabric pattern. My blog is named The Striped House, so I love a good stripe patternA group of other bloggers and myself challenged ourselves to create a DIY piece inspired by Miles Redd. So I chose to create a Deconstructed Stripe vase.
Guys I have wanted to make a kitchen island of my very own for a long time. So when we were buying this house, it had the perfect space for the island I'd dreamt about forever. I bought a $25 dresser that I wanted to use because of the perfect amount of storage for baking sheets & all other baking utensils. It had ample drawer space! Then I turned it into a beautiful work space for my kitchen!
We needed a quick and easy way to give our storage closet floor a face lift. It's under the stairs, and we use it for a lot: my craft supplies, extra cleaning supplies, extra drinks and paper towels, the cat pans, and more. But when we moved in, they had left the floor unfinished concrete.This drove me NUTS because it was impossible to keep clean. I felt like it was always dusty, and seeing as the cat pans were in the area, we definitely wanted something that was easy to wipe up in case they had any accidents while trying to use their pans.As a first step, I swept the floor as best I could and used a vacuum attachment to run around the edges by the trim. (Why put up trim but no floor?!)
This isn't your run of the mill staircase makeover, I wanted to achieve a rustic unfinished look for the staircase leading up to our bonus room. Since it was covered in gross carpet, I pulled the carpet away and found potential with some beautiful 2x4 yellow pine. Here is how I finished off our staircase during our staircase makeover.
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!
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.
