So years ago I saw a coffee table that had a mosaic wood pattern that slowly transitioned from a darker wood to a lighter wood. It’ been stuck in my mind ever since, there's just something about that style that I find so cool and attractive. I also happened to need a set of new nightstands. I decided this was an oppurtunity to finally try and recreate that coffee table I saw years ago, but put my own twist on it!What a project this was. Let me tell you, this probably took me close to a month to finish. I was only working on it in my spare time on weekends and after work, since my day job has been really busy lately. Definitely one of my longest projects, but totally worth it! I’m really happy with how it all turned out!If you like this build and my photography check out my Instagram. I offer daily bite sized content on instagram and try to make myself available to answer as many questions as possible! Find me @zacharyms
I'm sure if you look around in your cupboards you will find one or two of these, we all have them. By them I mean the silver serving platters. I inherited mine and held on to them. Never actually used them for what they were supposed to be used for, but I loved the shape of them. So when I was searching for the perfect frame for my beloved Grandma's pictures these immediately came to mind. My Gramma lived to the beautiful age of 103. She passed last November due to complications from a fall. Up until then she was blessed with good health and was able to live in her own home. I was given a picture of her when she was a young girl of 13 and I had the picture of her already of her at 103. She is deeply missed but these pictures help fill that void and are a reminder of what a remarkable woman she was.
Make a pumpkin topiary with matching embroidery hoop pumpkins for your fall decor! These are easy to make using an old sweater and some dollar store pumpkins. This is a quick upcycle project that only takes a few supplies.
I’m a really big fan of rescuing objects, because I don’t believe in throwing things away that still have use in them. Sometimes though you get something and think, “that’s the end of this”, like this rusty pan. But then I found this great tip to remove rust from metal using coke and tinfoil.
There's something about a chunky craftsman window/door trim that makes my heart melt. I think it's the perfect way to add character to any space, but especially those faux farmhouse spaces like our builder grade ranch. The builder left us with a less than desirable trim, so updating the windows with a chunkier trim really gave this area some va-va-voom! This tutorial is fairly simple and only requires the most basic of tools. Check out the tutorial below and visit my post for the full step-by-step
I have eczema on my hand, and most bulk soaps in stores make it worse. I have to take my own soap with me when I go to the store. Rather than dealing with a liquid that can spill or a bar soap that can get messy, I make single use soaps. Since it's fall, I decided to use silk fall leaves to make soaps.
Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.
If you were one of the 15 million that viewed our video on how to make a concrete pumpkin two years ago, you probably have your own pumpkin that is in need of a little attention.We have several concrete pumpkins which we have left in the Florida elements for two years. They were in need of cleaning and new paint.Instead of just painting them, we decided to give our 'happy' pumpkins a little 'creepy' makeover with a little more concrete and paint. You'll find the tutorial in our Workshop Wednesday show above.You can watch the entire thing, but you can also fast forward to 3:35 to watch just the tutorial.
We recently installed a couple of Ring Outdoor Security Cameras at Steph's house as part of our participation in The Home Depot's smart home campaign.These cameras are battery operated, meaning we could install them away from a power source. This gave us a lot more flexibility in their placement.We decided to put them where they could "see" Steph's house rather than "see" out away from it.Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage in the form of a birdhouse "slipcover."
I had found this old forgotten toolbox at a garage sale and just knew I had to have it, even tho I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time. When I got home, I scoured the internet for inspiration. I saw a picture of a toolbox on the wall that was used to store books. Well, the only walls in my home that are empty are in the bathroom and the lightbulb went off! So here is the easy and quick project I did using that old forgotten toolbox.
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.
We love to make homemade gifts for family and friends and think these pretty little fabric covered flowerpots fit the bill perfectly. They are simple and cheap to make but look fabulous paired with a lovely plant as a thoughtful gift.
