We gave our teen son a room makeover with a beautiful planked wall - from wallpaper - and a new desktop made from laminate flooring, and now we just had his shelving left.
We bought basic wood lumber, stained and put polyurathane on it, and a few basic parts -- black pipe. It was easy and inexpensive. We hung the pipes from the studs so it's super strong.
Now he has an updated, industrial inspired room. Click the link below to see the full room finished and more details about the parts and sizes.
Get ready for a GAME changer! This is literally changing my life! Haha ok maybe not so dramatic, but this hide-away pantry is an amazing storage alternative that will open up some cabinet space!!! This kitchen storage is made by creating a slim sliding shelving unit for the space between your wall and refrigerator. It's amazing what a little wood and paint will do!
Any search of the terms "paint pouring," "acrylic pouring," or "marbling," will bring up lots of projects and techniques. Paint pouring is a lot of fun and produces amazing and sometimes unexpected results. It's a great project for beginner and advanced DIYers.In this video and post, I'm making a trio of "pumpkins" for a little fall decor.
Make a pumpkin topiary with matching embroidery hoop pumpkins for your fall decor! These are easy to make using an old sweater and some dollar store pumpkins. This is a quick upcycle project that only takes a few supplies.
I have a very small hall bath & the door opens into the bathroom, taking up even more space, so I wanted to replace it with a sliding door. I bought an arched mirror on clearance and mounted it to MDF, framed it out and added trim and molding on sides for privacy. I purchased the MDF from Home Depot and they cut all the pieces to size for me. I bought the barn door hardware on Amazon. I am pretty handy, but installing the hardware was challenging. It may have been just the one I bought because I had to make modifications. Look for one with easy installation.

These are all my favorite color blends of all time! For this project I wanted to create an Ombré Technique to compliment and enhance this awesome color combination originally introduced by Maria Revollo of M&B Furniture Decor.
An industrial shelf creates a modern vibe in any space. The metal piping suspends two wood-looking boards making it possible for even the smallest NYC to have shelf space. If you want to get the Industrial pipe shelving unit you can get it right here! Single-shelf, double-shelf and triple-shelf units are available.
I am not sure if this is good news or bad news for you- but we are in the last week of July. You know what that means?? School is just around the corner! Although I don’t have kiddos yet I always love walking the aisles at Target and getting inspired to organize my house. Part of that means getting restock easy and accessible (as well as cute!). I recently just designed my guest bedroom so I figured it was time to get the guest bedroom bathroom snazzy right?Photo Credit Anya McInroy Original Blog Post: http://zestitup.com/diy-belt-bathroom-shelf/
Our kitchen had been nicely remodeled at some point before we moved into our house, but whoever did the remodel made the kind of strange choice to install a cabinet meant for a corner on one wall. It looked weird and guests regularly hit their heads on it. We decided to replace it with open shelving just in that one spot, and we opted to add some copper sheeting to them to make them a little more interesting. Read about taking the old cabinet down here.
As we are re-siding our house from a pale yellow vinyl siding to a new "greige" (gray with brown tint) something had to be done to update or hide the utility meter.Repurposing old vinyl shutters, the eyesore actually became a deck focal point.All I had to buy was paint and hardware!
