I used up all the oyster sauce the last time I cooked and as I was about to throw it in the recycling bin, I figured it had a really nice form. So I placed it aside first and when I was ready to work on some DIY, I repurposed this sleek looking bottle.
I’m pretty sure you have some nice looking bottle of sauce in your pantry, so when you use up all the contents do not throw it just yet, give this diy a try.
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.
A few months ago, we were given a "West Elm" challenge. Needless to say, I missed the deadline, but did not lose the inspiration nor the desire to complete. When I first saw this, not only did I like the simplicity, but also the design. A price tag of $299 excited me because I estimated I could replicate it for less than $20 since I already had a frame I thought would work. The frame I use was purchased at a garage sale for $5.

Don’t throw away those prints that you hate, you can make your own custom canvas prints! With the divorce well behind me I still have a pile of shiiii…. stuff in my closet I have every intention of burning in my fire pit this summer. HOWEVER, I happen to be in a family of several artists and know full well what a pain in the butt building and stretching your own canvas is and how expensive it is to buy it…. DANGIT… *throws up hands in defeat* so I couldn’t just burn them!
Hello friends!! Remember my guest bedroom that I zested a few weeks back?? Well today we are going to get zesty with a new accent wall. I love subtle geometric patterns and funky different accent walls. I love honeycomb and chevron and all those fun trendy walls we are seeing all across pinterest, but I must admit I don’t have the patience for those, nor am I a perfectionist. Which is why I was super excited about this wall, not only is it a bit more unique but oh so easy as well!!Photos by Jessica Helton Original Blog
This was how it all started. I had an urge to cut hexagons and make the edges beveled, so I did.
I didn’t really have a project in mind, I just kept cutting hexagons, putting them on the ground, and staring. (I stared at them a lot.)
At some point, I thought I should probably decide what to do with the hexagons before going any further....
So, I had a huge jar of left over glass pebbles--you know the kind that you get at the craft store in those little net bags. I use the flawless ones to make my custom art pendants and rather than throw away the flawed ones, I kept collecting them in a large glass jar hoping someday I would come up with a brilliant idea. Well, here it is! It's a work in progress...

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.
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!
