Have you ever wanted something so bad you could taste it, but it was not going to work with your budget? When we made over our one Master Bedroom Closet into a separate His and Hers – I wanted a gorgeous, sparkly chandelier in my she-chic closet. However, it wasn’t in the budget. This was my solution!
Even though this is a gingerbread garland , unfortunately it's not the edible kind. A bit like the super cute gingerbread man advent calendar I made this year too!I don't know about you, but as a family we get swamped with cardboard packaging this time of the year. Everyone seems to be doing most of their Christmas shopping on Amazon! I decided to reuse some of the Amazon boxes for a fun festive decoration.
Today I am sharing an easy method to refurbish wood furniture without sanding or stripping the old finish. The dresser I am working on is from the early 1900's and is in very rough shape.
I love the look of lanterns in outdoor decorating, but the cost to buy them can get quite pricey, and most do not come with lights and I of course wanted both. I decided to make my own, lights and all. The cost , $12.00 to make two lanterns I can use year round in my outdoor decor!
I love decorating for the holidays, but with small children, it can be difficult. My kids, like most, are very curious and love to touch everything they see. It is especially tempting when you put out a bunch of shiny new things, and then have to constantly tell them “no touch”.Here is a fun idea specifically for the kids; one you can encourage them to play with throughout the Christmas season!
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.
I had a vision...My mantel needed a focal point for Christmas, so I was going to create this night scene on a painted black backdrop with mini lights posing as twinkling stars in the night.However, as I worked further on the project, that all changed. (they always do...)It became bigger... and BETTER!Rather than boards, I grabbed an old bulletin board I had in my stash instead.I then messed with an easy-to-use stencil in such a (good) way that created a NEW design, and the mini lights would now highlight the sign in a much more meaningful way...Here's how it turned out and how it looks on the now Christmas mantel!Hard to believe that's a bulletin board, isn't it?
On this edition of Workshop Wednesday, we revisited a project we did three years ago. It's still holding strong and is home to a collection of small Lego sets.We realized we never shared the tutorial here in Hometalk. The project lends itself to even novice DIYers. You can see a preview of the shelves at the 2:15 timecode mark. Take a look and then read on to see the tutorial

I made a batch of these ornaments years ago for a craft fair. Recently, I was inspired to make another batch in the colors that I love for Christmas. That's one of the best parts about this project - customizing it with the colors you love.These ornaments are easy enough to let kids help you in the process, but also they're pretty enough to give as gifts. Most kid crafts aren't exactly gorgeous, ya know.
Hi, I'm Amber Oliver! I hope if you enjoy this project you'll also stop by my blog!When you hear "builder grade" you probably have the same yellow/beige color I'm thinking of come to mind. You've seen those boring bathroom mirrors that are essentially just glass stuck to the wall. I teamed up with a Hometalker who had FIVE of these mirrors in her house and knew she needed an easy way to transform them.If you're in the Houston area, I can help you create this look for your home!
