I started with a curbside find, an old dresser that was missing a drawer. By cutting down the dresser's height, adding a seat and cushion, and adding width to the door with a 2 by 4's. I added a shelf, some hardware and voila! And made a beautiful Hall Tree Bench. But wait! That is not all, I also used the other part of the dresser and made another beautiful bench.
Here's a project that is inexpensive, yet looks nice and can be used for any season, or just to have as part of your home decor.

Candle lovers, this one is for you! :)We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

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.
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.
Halloween is my most favorite holiday so I always go all out with the decorations. Every year I try to come up with some new Halloween items to mix in with the old, and I always seem to have more project ideas than time. So the easier the project is, the more likely it is to get done...which is why this DIY Halloween wreath made the list.
Find some vintage glass lamp shades at your local thrift store or dump store and turn them into the perfect summer planters!

I was looking for a simple solution for our bathroom wall lamps. As I can't spend a lot of money in new lighting right now, I came up with a upcycling idea and I used tin cans as wall sconce. I love tin cans, they are free and come in many sizes which make them one of the best material to upcycle. You can check my recycled desk lamp if you have some tin cans left!
Have a few plain candles in a cabinet somewhere? Today, I’m going to share with you how to add images to candles using a heat gun. Using this technique, I turned plain white inexpensive candles into beautiful ones that look like they came from an upscale boutique. These make great gifts!
I wrote about a bunch of winter crafts to make in this post about a Hygge Winter and I picked one to make this week! It has been frigidly cold here in the Northeast, so I thought it was a great time to try an Ice Sun Catcher. I had leftover, slightly mushy fruit and a few other bits from the pantry and there isn’t much more that this super simple winter craft calls for!
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.
