So, I am either using items or tossing them. When it came to the wicker baskets full of silk flowers I almost tossed them. But an idea came to the rescue and the silk flowers "live" on for another day. :)
In a modern cottage or farmhouse style!
I just made this great DIY floral swag. I am sure you get all of those same home decor catalogs I do. I am sometimes taken aback at the prices! I spotted a gorgeous floral swag in one of my catalogs and then I saw the price!!! $429!! I know they are high quality flowers and greenery, and it is a really good size swag, but over $400 for my front door?! I knew it was time to go shopping and make my own floral swag knock off! Gather up your coupons and follow along, and you can save money too! For more details on this DIY visit: Catalog Floral Swag Knock Off
Our mudroom is one of the most used rooms in our house. It is combined with our laundry room so there is always a constant flow of laundry and children in and out of this room. The mudroom is between our garage and the front hall, and when we enter the house it’s through the mudroom. We had a lack of functional storage for each of the kids, so shoes, coats and bags just ended up all over the floor. I really wanted to take care of the storage situation, and the first thing to take care of was building the benches.
If you are anything like me, your family goes through lots of jeans. We love wearing our jeans and then when they are worn out or no longer fitting us we need new ones. But I didn't want to just toss out those worn out jeans, it was time to upcycle them into something awesome.
We were in desperate need of extra storage in our teeny, tiny guest bath. The single vintage shelf was simply not enough. A fan of all things industrial, we used metal plumbing fixtures and glass to create three simple shelves. Triple the storage space!
It's time for Christmas DIYs! And you know what that means...glitter everywhere. I love glitter, but I hate finding it all over my house. These beautiful ornaments will solve that problem for you by letting you enjoy the beauty of glitter on your Christmas tree or in your holiday decorations while keeping the mess contained. And it uses wood floor cleaner. Yep, wood floor cleaner that I already had in my cleaning cabinet.First grab a clear ball ornament and pour enough cleaner in to cover the entire inside of the ornament. Turn the ornament upside down and drain the excess cleaner in a small paper cup for a minute or two. (Bonus: you can reuse the excess cleaner that collects in the cup on the next ornament.)
Christmas and decorations are a big deal at our house even though our space is limited from when we downsized and sold our huge house on an acre of land. Still, decorations can compliment the holidays with a little imagination. After decorating my built in hutch and my Mom's old hutch, I decided our kitchen inside door needed a burlap wreath.
How I built cornhole boards and stained them with unicorn spit. I’ve been meaning to build some yard games for family gatherings, parties and birthdays held at my place. My best friend’s husband was turning 40 in November and we threw him a surprise birthday party in October. Why a month before his birthday? Because this is Minnesota and we didn’t want to be outside standing in a foot of snow and freezing to death lol And I don’t have a house big enough to really accommodate 100 people!
Learn how to make these gorgeous shelves from reclaimed wooden boards and plumbing supplies. Then decorate them with unexpected accessories for the perfect mix of old and new, rustic and glamorous.
I’m not sure about you but I have always been intimidated about wallpaper. I consider myself an avid remodeler been doing this since the 80s. So I was not sure if it was hard to do it was just scary to lineup the textures and such. So when my daughter asked me to help her with her-so teeny little bathroom of course I agreed but I was still a little intimidated.
