This week, I put together a beautiful LOVE sign with plaster casts that I had made from molds of my granddaughter’s feet.Plaster Casting is easier than it looks and I would love to show you how to create your own beautiful memories with this simple project!
Jos and I have recently fallen in love with the gorgeous Dissolved lace mirrors over at Anthropologie. However we did not love the price tag. Here's the $2000 version..
So, we did what any self respecting DIY'er would do, we went to the thrift store. Below we will walk you through how to make your own Vintage Dissolved Mirror Iron Orchid Style! Remember, you don't have to sacrifice sophisticated design when you DIY, it's simply the best of both worlds; creativity AND design.
This couch was on its way to the tip. I asked the owner if I could take it and she was happy for it to be gone. Because it was free I thought it would be a good project for me to try and see if I could restore it and at the same time see how they are put together. I had never done a couch before so this was my test run.
Hi everyone! I am so excited to share this project with you. I have a long window next to my front door. I don’t like having to put a heavy curtain there, it makes the room so dark. If I put up a sheer, it lets in the light, but anyone can see into the house.So what can I do to the by window so I can see out of it when the doorbell rings? I want to be able to see out, but people not see in….and let the sunshine in! This is the window before:
Challenge The Furniture Spa presents how to use Unicorn SPiT to revitalize a $10.00 entertainment center door.
Faux stained glass. Fun fix for your bathroom or other windows. Instant and beautiful solution to your privacy issues in dwellings where you require privacy but nail holes for curtains and other changes are not allowed.
You can easily create a beautiful stain glass window with Unicorn SPiT and not break the bank in the process. Plus you will have leftover Unicorn SPiT to do many more projects (check out my blog to see more projects). I have had bare sidelight window for years...and yes everyone could see right in! I wanted something that I could still see out of but to see in was a bit distorted. So for me I didn't want curtains. Years ago I did a similar thing but used the paint that was being sold for doing stained glass...boy was it expensive! So since I already had my stash of Unicorn SPiT I gave this a try last fall. So far it has held up beautifully!
I'm not sure how many of y'all are ready for spring but I'm BEYOND ready for it! I feel like every time I hear a bird chirp, I'm going to look outside and it's going to be summer and 75 degress. Unfortunately, I live in NY so when I currently look outside, all I see is snow. It can't keep me from hoping and wishing though! I was browsing online for kitchen items (for when our reno is finished) and came across a super cute gardening basket from William Sonoma. So I decided to try and create a version for myself without paying top dollar. Once springtime arrives, I will be armed and ready for gardening. Even though I'm not a sewer, I was pretty happy with how this little project came out.We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
I feel like so many of my craft projects start out the same. I will be out for a walk on our farm and find some old piece of “junk” and get inspired to turn it into a funky home decor project or fun yard art.I found an old bike wheel out in the junk pile on our property and asked my mother in law if I could use it. I brought it back to our house where it sat on the front porch for a few days. My husband saw it and asked why there was a bike wheel sitting on the front porch.“Oh that,” I replied. “I’m going to make it into a wreath”. I quickly realized how crazy this sounded and continued to explain. “I know that sounds really weird, but I promise it will be really cool looking”My husband didn’t even bat an eyelash. At this point he’s so used to my weird projects he just nodded. “Oh I’m sure it will.” I guess the people in my life are used to my recycled craft shenanigans.The only difficult part of this project is removing the tire from the wheel and even that isn’t very hard.
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!
I'm sure by now most of you have seen at least one item in a store that appears to have been dipped in paint. I know I've been seeing dip dyed wicker baskets in several places and I just had to have one so I figured I'd try the technique with a handful of items to see how they turned out. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome of all five items I tried this technique on!
We take a look at a wonderful DIY project by Memphis, TN Stockist, Stephanie Jones of Me & Mrs. Jones. She shares how she took a regular canvas drop cloth and gave it some stenciled style and color with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. She says: “I wanted to add a little softness, warmth & boho pizazz to a less-than-lovely window at our studio.”
