My deck has been neglected since we moved in 4 years ago. And because our dining room window faces into the privacy fencing for the hot tub, I just couldn’t stand the thought of looking at it for another winter! So I decided to do a quick and inexpensive update before the winter hits. I bought a can of paint and ‘shopped’ in our garage for cast off items.
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.
We didn't even know you could do half of these things!!
This project has been a long time coming and took us a total of 6 months from start to finish. My husband and I did all the work ourselves without hiring out a single bit of it. It's a lot of work living in an 1800's farmhouse but we're passionate about restoring it and this was a room we've wanted to renovate from the very beginning.
Two silver dinosaur jars. Other figurines and colors are possible. On the lids of the decorative jars, dinosaurs have been chosen to preserve beautiful treats, toys and other treasures to offer. After being emptied, the jars can contain a lot of things without being limited to children. Whether in a bathroom to hold beauty products, on a shelf for art supplies, in your child's playroom, to organize the kitchen, the nursery, his office, we find to fill them without difficulty.Ideal for storing everything in every room of the house:- the kitchen: tea, coffee, sweets, sugar, ...- the children's room: letters, legos, little toys, treasures, finds, ...- the bathroom: cotton wool, make-up, samples, ...- the office, the sewing, the DIY, ...- to fill and give as a giftJars are dishwasher safe while lids by hand
If you know me you know I’m obsessed with a good basket wall! This is a trend that I can’t let go of.When it comes to basket walls I do not strive for perfection. What I think is cool about them is the imperfection! Baskets add so much to a space like color, texture, and warmth. The coolest thing about this project is its easy, affordable, and anyone can do it!
Growing up, I always admired the Hudson’s Bay point blanket that adorned my great aunt's bed – with it’s iconic stripes! When I saw this knock-off at my local Value Village, I grabbed it and knew then and there that Hudson’s Bay stripes would make their way into our project (the second makeover of a Singer sewing table).If you’re a visual learner and would rather skip the tutorial, watch the video :)
In this tutorial, I show you how to build a Reclaimed Dining Table with epoxy resin and pecky sinker cypress wood. Learn many resin tips and woodworking techniques that make this a DIY project for everyone.Christmas was only a few months away & the adults in our family pick names to exchange gifts. My mother in law needed a new table, so I made sure to pick her name for this year. She mentioned in the past how much she loves Louisiana Cypress wood, so I planned to make her a special cypress table with unique wood that is 100s of years old.I searched for cypress table ideas for about a day. The unique look of pecky cypress quickly grabbed my attention. This wood is fairly common in my part of the country (South Louisiana) & I thought it would be a great choice of wood for this epoxy resin dining table. The wood is not only beautiful and unique, but it also has a lot of historical/geographical significance. My Mother-in-law would appreciate the historical value.I called a friend of mine who knows the best places to purchase reclaimed wood in the New Orleans area and he referred me to a company that has been owned by the same family since the early 1800s.I visited the lumber company the following day and noticed they not only had sinker cypress, but they also had pecky sinker cypress.
We are having a Halloween party this year and before I get to all the house cleaning and yard work, well I had to make a few decorations! With these upcycled pumpkins I am calling the front display complete. And I am out of excuses for postponing my other chores.
Steph has a tub that she only uses for storage, never bathing! It's a great place for storing bathroom essentials, but it's an eyesore.She came up with an idea to hide the storage without damaging the tub or limiting it's intended use.Head to 3:33 in the above video to see the Fast DIY project.
Are you tired of replacing the cloth top. On your gazebo? Yeah, me too. It's annoying and expensive so I decided to come up with a more permanent fix. As y'all know once I get an idea in my head there's no stopping me. Like the time I made a DIY Pallet Fireplace in my living room where there wasn't one lol. I'm obviously not afraid of big projects and you shouldn't be either. This one just took some basic tools, easy to get materials, and determination.
Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.
My neighbours were having a lot of building work done over the summer and, they had a skip(dumpster) outside their house full of lovely bits of scrap wood. I rescued some of this wood and combined it with some old road maps to make some fabulous ornaments for my home.This isn't the first time I've combined maps and wood I made a map printed pallet frame you can see here.
