We’re excited to bring you a Holiday DIY as versatile as it is charming!

My neighbours were having a lot of building work done over the summer and, they had a skip(dumpster) outside their house full of lovely bits of scrap wood. I rescued some of this wood and combined it with some old road maps to make some fabulous ornaments for my home.This isn't the first time I've combined maps and wood I made a map printed pallet frame you can see here.
Needed a headboard for a Queen bed. Wanted to try and build one myself and use some staining/waxing techniques I’ve seen on Hometalk and other internet sites. I had some Headboard cushions that I came across at Aldi’s, that was the inspiration for the idea.
My deck has been neglected since we moved in 4 years ago. And because our dining room window faces into the privacy fencing for the hot tub, I just couldn’t stand the thought of looking at it for another winter! So I decided to do a quick and inexpensive update before the winter hits. I bought a can of paint and ‘shopped’ in our garage for cast off items.

It started with a rose. My neighbor's rose. She was out one morning cutting off her roses and I asked her for one. She said to take as many as I wanted. And I had an "ah-ha" moment. I will make rose petal sachets!
This is where it started- an old mill in foreclosure that a man bought at auction and was giving away everything in the warehouse.
We got about 900 square feet of 1/4" heart pine lumber for FREE!!!!!! It was dark, hot and dusty but it was FREEEEEE!
As you can see, the boards were not in a finished state. But surprisingly we had very little waste!
Nowadays they don't seem to sell the type of headboard that I'm looking for. They are too small, come with a head and footboard, or too bulky. For a smaller room I can't have something as large as what I could find in a store or online...and then the price is crazy.So as I was putting drapes up in one room I knew I had to get rid of a ton of blinds. They are in good shape so I really didn't want to just throw them out so yes......I stored them. I'm glad I did because it hit me...shiplap is all the rage right now...and with all crazes, it will not be as cool in a year or two, so why pay the price for the wood when I can do it out of blinds. They are perfectly level, no warps, knot holes, etc. Plus the best part is that this headboard will not weigh a ton and need to have huge wall anchors to attach it.So away I went to the proverbial drawing board. What can I put these slats on? I want to keep it light...foam board. I got 2 packages (a set of 2 so 4 total) at Walmart for 3.50 each set. I only needed 3 foam boards but it was cheaper this way. Plus, I'm thinking of making a second one for a gift if this turns out the way I hope.I used just about everything that I had on hand in the house. If you needed to buy all of these items your cost would run about $40. And that includes purchasing some horizontal blinds.So here we go.....

I have been wanting to add a pegboard to my laundry room for a while. I have painted pegboards and stenciled them but wanted to try something different. Since I had a large amount of burlap, I thought I would give it a try. It is funny but none of the pictures seem to show the true color blue that this project turned out. The laundry room doesn't have any windows and doesn't get any natural light. It must be because I have to use the overhead light when I take a picture that it looks the way it does. In reality, it is a very pretty dark blue that almost looks like denim. There is one picture below that I think shows the color accurately. It is the one where one jar has been added and I am in the process of adding the second jar.
All items for this project are available at the Dollar Tree except the Mod Podge. This is an easy project to add an Autumn focal point to your home that doesn't look 'homemade'. Making several of these candles would be perfect as a centerpiece for your Fall table. Happy Creating everyone!
