We... the Pickle and I, have an ever growing list of home improvement/nesting projects that we're working our way through... to really make our house OUR home... We decided to start with the shiplap wall in our living room... it was one of the easiest of the projects on our list and a great place to get started.
Want to get the most amount of storage in a tiny bedroom? Learn how to make the built-in trundle bed and cabinets just like the ones we put in the modern farmhouse guest house. One of the cabinets is for the kitchenette and the other will house the composting toilet like you'd find in a tiny house. We built the bed and both of the cabinets for less than $300.
Hi, I'm Amber Oliver! I hope if you enjoy this project you'll also stop by my blog!When you hear "builder grade" you probably have the same yellow/beige color I'm thinking of come to mind. You've seen those boring bathroom mirrors that are essentially just glass stuck to the wall. I teamed up with a Hometalker who had FIVE of these mirrors in her house and knew she needed an easy way to transform them.If you're in the Houston area, I can help you create this look for your home!

My daughters wanted a cocktail party, and rather than look to Amazon to buy a Tiki Bar - I looked to Pinterest for ideas. 4 Pallets, some reclaimed wood and an old garden table were all put to good use. The whole process from start to finish took a weekend. The trickiest part was attaching the roof, and I suppose it wasn't an essential part, but I think aesthetically it looks better with than without. The uprights are old stair spindles found under our staircase and the roof itself is the old garden table top, sanded and varnished. I'm an Artist and Art teacher so I really enjoyed adding a bit of my artwork into the design, and the Bar sign and little cupboard inside the bar gave me an opportunity to give it a splash of colour. The most expensive part of the build was the varnish and weatherproof paint (It is the UK, so protecting it from the elements is essential!) - I ordered a little bell for last orders and a nice solar light to illuminate the entrance at the back, but everything else was something I either found or already had to hand. The total I spent was approx £80 - much better than the £300 plus needed to buy one from the internet! Hope you like! Thanks for looking - Martin.
We have always wanted a vintage-style wine rack for our dining room – and the frigid winter temperatures that swept through Ohio last week gave us the perfect opportunity to finally create it!
Mary and I have never been fond of the “cabin-fever” that can set in during the cold winter months – and a project like this was the perfect recipe to pass the time.
So we braved the cold in the garage to cut all of the pieces – then hustled back inside to assemble....
I love pallet wood. I know it's been popular for years but you can use it for just about anything you can think of. I had a stack left in my garage and got the idea to make a memo board. Something unique with a bit of a farmhouse flair and this is what I came up with.
First I got Pallet board basically for free from a supply place that had the wood in between stacks on pallets. Then I chose 4 different color stains. The walls in the kitchen are a Latte Color with Honey hardwood floors and brown cabinets. I chose Kona, Summer, Oak, Cognac and Golden Mahogany.
Being a dancer, I love the Nutcracker! My neighbor down the street has these Terra Cotta soldiers that they put out every Christmas and I love them. I decided I was going to make my own and add a twist - make mine a Flower Pot Nutcracker solider! You can see more of my crazy creations here
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.
If you were one of the 15 million that viewed our video on how to make a concrete pumpkin two years ago, you probably have your own pumpkin that is in need of a little attention.We have several concrete pumpkins which we have left in the Florida elements for two years. They were in need of cleaning and new paint.Instead of just painting them, we decided to give our 'happy' pumpkins a little 'creepy' makeover with a little more concrete and paint. You'll find the tutorial in our Workshop Wednesday show above.You can watch the entire thing, but you can also fast forward to 3:35 to watch just the tutorial.
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!
This dresser was up for sale on my local marketplace website and he was looking for offers around $100 (Hell no) I offered him $20 because I wanted to try and restore it as my next DIY project, which was very ambitious. My Son said he would only offer a match to burn it as firewood.
