As we all know, decor trends are always changing. It's hard to keep up. Are you itching for a new holiday style, but worried about budget? You can create a whole new look for your Christmas tree using Dollar Store items for A LOT less than you would expect!
I found this gem on the side of the road. Yes it wasn’t pretty but definitely had potential. It was missing a side rail. Easy fix right? And of course I can just take my sawz-all to the ratten seat and replace it. I loaded it up and left it for a couple of months. It has been rained on numerous times. I even thought about throwing it away a couple of times. FINALLY I got off my rear and went to town on it. I cleaned it up with some vinegar and wiped it down really good. I left it to dry a few hours and took my hand sander and used 120 grit to sand off the rough spots and help paint adhere to it. It was black and I thought I probably need to use primer. I didn’t though. After sanding I measured where the side bar was gone and replaced it. You can see it in the photo below. All is used was my jig saw to cut the piece and a few wood screws to make it stay in place.
Quick and easy way to give your boring wall (wherever that is, master bedroom in our case) a quick one day solo makeover!
These DIY pumpkin spice air fresheners not only smell amazing, but they also double as beautiful fall home decor! You can learn how to make your own with a few simple tools and supplies that can be reused again and again for future DIY projects.
Have you ever read the label of air freshener that you buy in a store? Do you really want to breath all that stuff? Here is an easy and quick alternative to commercial air fresheners. You know how realtors recommend baking cookies before an open house? This is the same concept only you are steeping the ingredients on the stove.
You probably have most of the ingredients you need in your refrigerator, your garden and your yard. Here's what we used: rosemary from the garden, clips of cedar and snips of balsam boughs. We mixed this together in two pots with lemon, lime and bay leaves.
We made two different scents and put them in mason jars. For more detailed information go to our blog: http://livedan330.com/2013/10/03/diy-organic-and-all-natural-air-fresheners/ and don't forget to follow us on Hometalk!
Air plants are easy to grow and a lot less work than traditional plants. Because they don't have a traditional root system you can be creative with how they are displayed or mounted.

One doesn’t think about resurrecting furniture, but there are times I swear that the things I find have no heart beat! I mean D E A D dead! Just like this park bench I found on the side of the road. It’s the nurse in me that wants to save everything, especially furniture. Besides it was FREE!
This project has been a long time coming and took us a total of 6 months from start to finish. My husband and I did all the work ourselves without hiring out a single bit of it. It's a lot of work living in an 1800's farmhouse but we're passionate about restoring it and this was a room we've wanted to renovate from the very beginning.
This accent wall would be perfect in your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom - the possibilities are endless!To purchase the materials to make this wall REAL brick was going to be around $800. That’s a lot for an accent wall, considering we made a board and batten wall for basically no cost.Because I didn’t want to spend $800, and I wanted the option to be able to remove whatever we put up, I decided faux brick was the way to go.What to know the best part?It only cost $75!(The panels were $75, we had all of the other materials.)MATERIALS:Faux brick panelsDrywall mudDrywall scraperPaint / waterNail gunCircular sawJigsaw
This dresser was up for sale on my local marketplace website and he was looking for offers around $100 (Hell no) I offered him $20 because I wanted to try and restore it as my next DIY project, which was very ambitious. My Son said he would only offer a match to burn it as firewood.
I had an idea for a custom wall sconce. Found Some metal wall sconces in the closet that originally had metal candle holders that hung from them. I wanted to use them on boards that were done to match headboard I made previously and hang lanterns that I purchased at gift department of local pharmacy.
These little concrete pumpkin candles were inspired by a DIY I did a few weeks ago. I really loved the idea of industrial fall decor and decided to make some indoor pumpkins instead of the outdoor ones I made last time. Since my last pumpkins were pretty big I found a way to keep them lightweight by turning the concrete into hypertyfa (if you’ve missed that DIY you can check it out here).
Are you tired of replacing the cloth top. On your gazebo? Yeah, me too. It's annoying and expensive so I decided to come up with a more permanent fix. As y'all know once I get an idea in my head there's no stopping me. Like the time I made a DIY Pallet Fireplace in my living room where there wasn't one lol. I'm obviously not afraid of big projects and you shouldn't be either. This one just took some basic tools, easy to get materials, and determination.
