I have this little plain entry wall that needed something! A Brick Stamp made for furniture and walls? YES PLEASE! I stamped my wall in under 30 minutes! Read on to see how!
I wanted a little change in our bedroom but currently, we're on a tight budget. To keep from spending money, I went shopping in what I already had on hand. When it comes to decor, shop your home first is the best policy!
Nothing is worst than being super frugal, yet having such expensive taste.
I have wanted a gorgeous diamond tufted headboard for years without any hope of every owning one...that is until I made one myself!
With a slew of clever budget saving tricks, I spent UNDER $50 to make this gorgeous knock off.
First, let me say, “Not my idea at all.”While at the funeral home helping my Mom with the arrangements for my Dad, she noticed some candles, which were very nice, made from the flowers sent as memorials for the ceremony.Mom wanted to have a use for the flowers that people sent and suggested the candles. They looked fine, supposedly lasted forever and I thought about it. I could see the candle stored on a basement shelf in a few years. I didn’t feel the $100 price tag for each candle was a good use of funeral dollars so I declined her offer--as did my other siblings.I told Mom I would find a better use for the flowers no one took after the ceremony and so, when I got home, I looked on Pintrest and found about a dozen ideas yet only one inspired me. I’m not one for having a lot of stuff to dust around so a picture frame or a dried arrangement, though beautiful ideas, wasn’t anything I wanted to make.
Turn an old ugly brown gourd into a thing of beauty with a fall planter. I purchased an old gourd years ago from a farmer that called it an apple gourd. He told me he grows special gourds and paints them to sell. When I bought it, it was brown and even a little moldy on the outside, but the paint has remained as shiny and beautiful as when it was new. It looks like a giant apple.
There are so many drains in our homes and from time to time they get clogged. We've all been there. I wanted to share some ways to unclog drains with natural products and without using a plunger. You can see more of my crazy creations here*Everyone's got different kinds of pipes, home temperatures, etc. Please know what you are working with so you know what your limits are with your toilets, sinks, pipes, etc.
Do you have some kind of faux taxidermy up in your pad? Have you jumped on board the trend? I happily admit, I love a good white deer head like the rest of them.If you have wanted to get something like that for a kids nursery or bedroom, then this DIY tutorial is for you. Forget the sloppy paper and mis-shapen busts of going the usual paper mache route. This version of faux (!!) mini paper mache animal heads is going to take you no time and look SO cute.
This accent wall would be perfect in your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom - the possibilities are endless!To purchase the materials to make this wall REAL brick was going to be around $800. That’s a lot for an accent wall, considering we made a board and batten wall for basically no cost.Because I didn’t want to spend $800, and I wanted the option to be able to remove whatever we put up, I decided faux brick was the way to go.What to know the best part?It only cost $75!(The panels were $75, we had all of the other materials.)MATERIALS:Faux brick panelsDrywall mudDrywall scraperPaint / waterNail gunCircular sawJigsaw
I was working on a large bookcase painting job and was waiting for a layer to dry... There on the wall was an old Wall Switch Plate.. Needed a new one! I had looked for a couple of new ones when I went to get the second quart of paint for my project, lol not good at my estimation skills yet.. and thought i would just wait, budget ya know! ... But then!.........there was the switchplate and there were my paints, and there i was just standing around waiting for paint to dry..
Remember my post about using a shower curtain in my half bathroom for decor? Click HERE to read all about it!At the time I purchased 2 shower curtains, each a different design from Society6. I used the one design in my half bathroom as art BUT my heart belonged to the other design! Alas life got busy and it got forgotten about and shoved in a basket in my TV stand and there it sat for a year but always on my mind...until this moment.YES I DID, I used a shower curtain as art...again!
It's easier to get creative in a small space because the supplies and materials will cost LESS and it'll be a QUICK project with LESS surface area to work on..So let's get creative with a rustic pallet wood wall ... in my small laundry room..
I did a post earlier this year on stenciling my boring white hall. It is very narrow with multiple doors. I did not want to do the typical thing of hanging family pictures and the hall is too narrow for furniture or even shelves. To add interest, I decided to stencil the upper half and my sweet Hubs did 'faux' panels on the bottom. If you're interested, . Finally, I found three metal pieces to decorate the walls. Please let me know what you think. We finally replaced the builder grade ceiling light, so be sure to go to the last picture to see the updated light fixture that we created from a 1920's lamp shade.
I’m a quilter and that means that I have tons of fabric scraps laying around waiting on my next project. And what better way to decorate a quilters home than by creating something with fabric! Using a technique called Iris Folding, here is a great way to make something amazing with fabric scraps. And it includes a free pattern too!
I did it! I created another faux brick wall in our house and I love it even more than the first! I took this opportunity to create a detailed step by step post because I had SO many inquiries on just how I did this on that small of a budget! Watch and learn young hometalkers!
