My friends at Burlap Fabric sent me some beautiful red ticking stripe fabric. I knew the fabric would be perfect for a Christmas DIY! But if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that sewing is something I do not do. It’s not that I don’t want to. It’s just that I never learned how so I am so intimidated by it. I hope to learn one day, but today is not that day.So, I started thinking up some ideas for fabric that didn’t require sewing and the thought of a Christmas rag wreath hit me. I remembered that I had some left over drop cloth from my DIY bedskirt, so I grabbed that to add in as well.
All those classic thrift store items can be so much more - but wait til you see just how much more!

I’m not sure about you but I have always been intimidated about wallpaper. I consider myself an avid remodeler been doing this since the 80s. So I was not sure if it was hard to do it was just scary to lineup the textures and such.

I wanted something fun for my table this year. Even though it will be used for the first time during our Thanksgiving dinner I made it so it could be used throughout the entire year.The estimated cost of this project is assuming you already have a cutting machine and most of the materials. I had most everything at home left over from different projects. The only thing I purchased were the handles.

Our mudroom is one of the most used rooms in our house. It is combined with our laundry room so there is always a constant flow of laundry and children in and out of this room. The mudroom is between our garage and the front hall, and when we enter the house it’s through the mudroom. We had a lack of functional storage for each of the kids, so shoes, coats and bags just ended up all over the floor. I really wanted to take care of the storage situation, and the first thing to take care of was building the benches.

So hiding in the corner of this estate sale was a vintage wooden ironing board. After a few minutes of haggling, the seller was worn down and let it go for $20. I had some idea of what I wanted to do but researched what ideas Hometalk and Pinterest might have. Bunches. With Christmas fast approaching I narrowed my search to Santa. Here is my version.
We had a blank wall that needed some sprucing up. Take a look at my take on the classic ship-lap wall, it sure did the trick. I cut plywood to make this shiplap-style wall for CHEAP!! And to add some thickness, I attached 1” chunks to the back. Easy peezy 🙌🏼 Here's how I did it!
This is a an easy way to make a bed skirt without having to sew. I have made them in the past and used elastic and was not really satisfied with the results and using the sheet between the mattress and box springs is a pain in the back to put onto the bed. The elastic idea was difficult to wash since it was a very long item that tangled in the washer and dryer. This idea is short valances that are easy to wash.
