POST CHALLENGE. STENCIL SOMETHINGI came up with the Idea to stencil this routed board at the last minut. I Had a Different Item I was going to stencil but unfortunately, It wasn't working out. So This is the last minute stencil project I came up with for the STENCIL POST CHALLENGE. It was extremely fun, I LOVE COLOR, and to blending colors together. Its a small board I boaght but it shows up bold. I left the wood bare because I wanted my colors to be bold and visible. I used one stencil and used it in different ways.
We probably ALL have books laying around that we don't want anymore. Now you can turn those books into custom works of art for any occasion or holiday.All you need for this project is a book (hard cover is best), a ruler that is marked in Centimeters and a pencil. There are a lot of FREE patterns on the internet (visit my blog post for additional links). For THIS particular single heart fold, I used this pattern found HERE. I recommend starting with this Instructables tutorial as it gives you a clear, simple place to start.
Upcycled Ladder | Bathroom organization DIY
If you are anything like me, than you are likely on a budget. Times are tough for many of us, and going out and buying new and expensive shelving and storage units aren't always an option. So what do we need to do to give ourselves the space we need for storage without going over our budget?! We need to open our eyes to seeing items we already have (or can find for low cost at a thrift/antique store) in a whole new way. We need to upcycle something old into something new that will work for us- most of the time, using an item for a purpose it was not intended for – like this ladder I hung up and turned into a bathroom storage unit for my skinny upstairs bathroom.
The idea for this project started brewing early last week, when I found an old red license plate out in our barn. I brought it into the house knowing I wanted to create something with it. A little bit later the same day I was cleaning my bathroom, and bothered by the fact we never have anywhere to set our little items or hang towels because of the skinny narrow shape of our bathroom....
Why would a simple project take 5 years to complete? I like to wait for projects to speak to me. I'm not sure if it wasn't talking, or if I wasn't listening. A friend gave me this piece years ago. I stored in in the shed. After all these years I recently figured that I needed to do SOMETHING with it.
If you like rustic decor the way that I like rustic decor, you are going to love this! When I saw someone was selling 100 year old beams from a barn they had dismantled my heart jumped and my brain started turning. I wanted to do something at my new lake house fixer upper with one of these beams, but what?
The old fluorescent lights in the kitchen were not only ugly, but they burned out. So we wanted to get the ceiling to match the "Old Farm Kitchen" appearance that we are striving to accomplish in the kitchen

Every since I made the first set of concrete lamps, I have been asked to produce another. This time it had to be easier to make, had to be larger, and with the option of placing it outdoors. After brainstorming here is the attempt of improvement. Check out the video for more details.
Being a die-hard junker, it is really hard for me to throw things away when there is still life in them. This is the internal struggle I faced every time that I walked up to my front door. My natural coir welcome mat looked like this after only one season! Faded floral design and a bit of a shed problem. It was no longer the way I wanted to greet people into my home, but how could I throw something away that was six months old or less? I just couldn’t, so I decided to look at Anthropologie for some inspiration while reaching for some paint!Zest it UpPhoto Cred: Anya McInroy
