Sunflowers happen to be one of my favorite flowers. It reminds me of my younger son, who has always loved them and wanted to have them planted! I've done a handfuls of sunflower tables, but this one I'll be sharing with you is a little different! This is my first one I created, and was my favorite of all of my sunflowers. Until now... now, I can't decide which I prefer.
It's probably safe to say that we've all come across a piece of furniture (or two... or three...) that has seen better days. We want to rescue them from the landfill or a bad paint job, but the wood looks beyond salvage. Well, I'm here to show you that many of those pieces are hidden treasures, just waiting for someone like YOU to come along and apply the TLC necessary to restore the wood to its former glory. Not everything needs to be painted. In fact, I will usually try to save the wood on the top surface with stain rather than paint over it. Take a look at this sad little table I brought back to life:Just look at the mess on the 'BEFORE' photo with all the mold, black and white stains. No one thought I could get this in shape suitable for staining.
Our church has a Trunk or Treat every year for the kids on Halloween and last year I went with a Nightmare Before Christmas theme, since it's one of my favorite movies. I DIY'ed most of the decor using dollar store items.
I love dried natural looking flowers, grass, branches, etc. So it is no surprise that I love this wreath made out of dried wheat and it is a great decoration for fall and the Thanksgiving holiday.This project definitely makes a mess. Be prepared with a broom and a vacuum. Beware the wheat gets stuck in your carpet.Here is what you need.
Create a thrifty but beautiful Thanksgiving table with the help of some chalk paint and feathers. Save some of those cans from making your Thanksgiving meal and paint them with chalk paint. Fill with a variety of feathers and other fall foliage for a pretty and unique tablescape. For more simple holiday crafts that make a big impact head to my blog Design Improvised!
Currently trending right now, Farm Tables and Farmhouse Decor are EVERYWHERE! I recently had a client that wanted to transform her outdated dining room table she had for years into a rustic Farm Table without breaking the bank. I was able to do just that using just one material- PAINT! This DIY Farm Table is super simple to tackle and create and will save you a ton of money. You'll be loving your new farmhouse decor in literally a day. The best thing about this technique is that you don't have to use a natural wood table. Even if your table is mahogany or dark cherry wood, just by using a good oil-based primer and some paint, you can transform it into a farm table. Try this technique out on any table in your home, whether a coffee table, end table, kitchen table, or even a headboard or wood plank wall. Anything made of wood would look amazing using this process. To start, simply sand down the entire table to get off any rough spots or debris. Wipe clean and prime the table entirely using a good oil-based paint if your table has a shiny varnish topcoat, or is super dark. If not, a regular water-based primer will work just fine.
I came across a pair of Queen Ann style end tables and I had a vision...
***UPDATE*** You can find the 2nd of the pair of these magnolia tables (different design) on another post here:

This is the time of year when we may yearn for new outdoor furniture, a dream that is too often out of reach for the budget-impaired. Still, never say die! I’ve “designed” an outdoor side table that’s super easy to put together using only three main items from the dollar store. Regular readers of Dollar Store Style may have seen an earlier version of this idea on the Dollar Store Style website. After being out in the weather all summer, a couple of issues popped up, which I’ll talk about as we go on.
Hi, I'm Miranda. I love farmhouse decor and barn doors a lot and since they are in such a big trend lately I wanted to try putting one on a table. I bought this little side table and I thought it would be perfect except I didn't like the size of the walls. I felt like it needed to be about 6 inches taller all the way around. So I embarked on the mission to get that done. These are the tools I used. (Always Wear Safety Glasses and Gloves If needed when working with powertools. )The tools:Circular saw nail gundrill Jig Saw with a metal blade.a metal drill bit in six 3/8speed squaretape measure
When I originally bought this end table it came with a beautiful hutch and I used it to display candles and other decorative items. Well, that ended quickly when my daughter took the table to use for her beauty products. Along the way, she moved out and left it behind, so I decided to turn it into a plant stand. I didn't want to re-stain it because I wanted to add some color to that space. Check out what I decided to do- I think it looks fab!It’s all solid wood and is a sturdy piece for sure. I wanted something with some pizzazz to brighten the space especially because it will be a home to some plants.
We spotted an industrial metal and wood side table at our local Starbucks that we thought we could DIY. After we found the perfect table at a thrift store, we used a faux rusty/crusty technique to transform it. We loosely followed a tutorial from Rogue Engineer. (See our full blog post for a link to the tutorial for more information.)
