Cut yourself a pattern from another valance or just about anything that your little heart can imagine or come up with. The possibilities are simply limitless!. I am posting this project to show you how to copy just about anything you want. I use this same idea to copy clothing also. Make your own pattern from other items.
Megan at 'the homes I have made' transformed her bedroom with painted furniture and new accessories. What I found striking in this room setting is the metallic silver mirror. Bought for over $120 (R1000), you can easily make this beautiful mirror at a fraction of the cost with a few materials and supplies that can be found at your local hardware store
Decorating for Christmas can get a little expensive. Using supplies for Christmas’s past, I managed to make a mini Christmas tree from faux garland that turned out cute as a button for my son’s room. This easy DIY project took less than an hour from start to finish and was incredibly cheap.
I'm loving belly baskets lately... the plain ones are pretty... but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dipped, pom, and tassel adorned ones!... so I've put together a DIY to show you some options of what you can do with the plain janes to dress them up for your home!...
I am such a cheapskate, er thrifty person, that I will not throw anything away! Well, not if I can save it! I had some plastic baskets. You know the kind that stack on top of each other. But they were worn and broken at the edges. Did I throw them out? Of course not! Instead I gave them a makeover!
Old books. We all have them. We've all seen them. In this case, my neighbor dropped me off a set of enclopedias from the 1980's that were about to go out with her garbage. Rather than see them destroyed, I thought, what I could I with them?Turn them into home décor of course! But they would need some work.....let's get to it!
We all have some old baskets at home which we no longer use. I decided to give this little basket a little makeover using some spray paint and petroleum jelly. As I wanted the basket to have a little oomph I decided to have a layered effect using antique gold and white spray paint.
I believe this is the fourth post I've done all about our newly remodeled entry hall and there is still so much to do! Today its all about the lighting. Just a note before we get started, as usual when I say "we" in this post, I mostly mean my honey because he's the one who does most of the work. I'm just his helper!
So, I am either using items or tossing them. When it came to the wicker baskets full of silk flowers I almost tossed them. But an idea came to the rescue and the silk flowers "live" on for another day. :)
In a modern cottage or farmhouse style!
I bought this old cabinet door at a store and it sat a long time waiting for inspiration. My friend made the decal for me. I wanted it to go on something special. Then I have a lightbulb moment to put two and two together. The outcome is beautiful!
Like so many of you, I love mason jars and use them quite often in decorating. But I find that I use a ton of the Mason jars but never the lids. Does that happen to you? I literally had a bucket full of Mason jar lids. My daughter and a couple of friends are moving into their first apartment for their Senior Year of College. They are going with beach themed decor, so I decided to make coasters from the mason jar lids.
