I've tried my hand a making a true mosaic window before--you know, with the little tiles, the glue and the messy grout. I wasn't a huge fan as I found it difficult to get the tiles to break into the perfect size pieces and the grout was aggravating to me. I found a new way to get a mosaic look without the messiness of crushing tiles and dealing with the grout...what's even better is that it only cost me $25! This would make for a great gift to someone special!
I wanted to do something a little different for my front door for the Independence Day and came up with this fun Fourth of July DIY Wreath. I am using the term "wreath" loosely here. I spotted this fabric on sale at JoAnn and decided it would go perfect with my Ikea UNG DRILL frame.
Did you hear the great news? Chip and Joanna are coming back in a new TV show!!We couldn't help but start dreaming...what if the Gaines' came to your house? Which room in your home would you ask them to makeover first?So, what do you think? Tell us which room in the comments below!
A few weeks ago, I had an idea to change up our bedroom once again. I was getting a new mattress from Lucid and I wanted a new bed to put it on. We didn’t have a new bed in the budget so I started thinking about how I could make a DIY headboard and bed frame. With excitement, I headed over to one of my favorite places to shop – my storage shed (nothing better than shopping your own space when you are on a tight budget). I was thinking about using some old doors as the DIY headboard and knew that I had some in storage, but couldn’t remember exactly what I had.
An overly festive wreath isn't ideal for everyone so here is another option! I wish I could've thought of another alternative for the "grass" I DIY'ed but I can't wait to hear what you guys would do in the comments down below. This wreath cost me $8! Who says decor had to be expensive?
Thrift stores are full of old frames and this is an easy way to turn one of those into a beautiful, colourful Spring wreath.
I live in a small 2 bedroom home and with that being said I took the smaller bedroom and made a walk in closet so I always needed somewhere for my grand- Munchkins to sleep when they come over. .. and I always wanted a Country Cottage!
My galvanized watering cans were collected over the years from flea markets and antique malls, some European, but most made in USA. They’re a rag-tag bunch, complete with dents and missing roses. While I love to find them in mint condition with their roses intact, I’m fond of those that were well used, imagining all the flowers and gardens they watered. I hung part of my collection on the corner of my Potting Shed a couple of years ago, where a rain chain would hang, but to be decorative rather than functional.

I'm sure you all have some trays around your home that could use a little attention.
I had an old set of three old and ugly trays that cried for attention :) So I decided to transform them into French made beauties with a little bit of chalk paint and some MDF boards as inserts. You can easily remove the MDF boards / signs / inserts and also use them as decorative pieces all around your home.
I used waterslide decal paper to transfer the beautiful French graphics and I loved the final result....
I’ve done really good with curbing my “buy-and-hoard” tendencies at the thrift store. But when you find thrifted pathway lights like these, and then upcycle them into fall-inspired DIY lanterns, I have a renewed appreciation of my “buy-and-hoard” ways.
I bought these old path walkway lights many months ago from the thrift store.
I gasped when I found them because I knew how amazing they could be once you get past the dirt and discoloration. They turned into great upcycled Fall-inspired lanterns!...
