I needed a cushion top piece to complete my bench nook area in my loft . I was looking at the prices for one and compared to what I spent it was a no brainer for me , as I built that area myself anyway in a previous post . So I made this simple and easy no sew cushion top. I hope this inspires you to do you own diy projects in your home !!!
While shopping for my guest room nightstand, I stumbled upon this little bench at the thrift store. It looked unloved and malnourished, but I saw potential…so, home it went with me. The room I am working with is small so there isn’t much room for extra furniture. I had this huge old mirror that I had bought at the thrift store long before, and I had recently purchased an interesting shelf that I thought would look great under the mirror. Once I saw the bench, I knew this trio of pieces would become the perfect vanity – even if it was only a few inches of space to work with!
My boyfriend and I have seen countless entertainment centers being given away on craigslist and other sites. We're talking about those old, clunky wood ones that TVs don't fit in now a days. Here's how ours changed completely from an unusable entertainment center to a beautiful home entrance bench!
I don't like to use harmful chemicals in my home. Vinegar can be a great biodegradable and green alternative. The acidity in the vinegar is what is doing the work while you are cleaning and cuts through grease, soap scum, mineral deposits, etc. You can see more of my crazy creations here
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.
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!
Have you ever found a beautiful, old rug that was ready for a new life? I found the most gorgeous, tattered rug and I just new it would be amazing on a bench. Use this how-to to get the steps for how to upholster a bench with an old rug.
You have probably noticed by now how much I love working with wooden crates. It's amazing how much you can actually do with them. This time, I decided to create a bench on wheels. This has to be one of my favorite crate projects for home decor. It's fully functional and I use it for storage, seating and sometimes I roll it out to use as a coffee table. Stain it, paint it or keep it 'au natural'.*Project Inspired by Stacy Davis.
Sometimes furniture just needs a little face lift. And sometimes you need that dresser or nightstand to be just a little taller. We've got you covered!In the past we have added legs to so many different things. But it never has been easy. Until we came across this sweet little tool!
I found these metal barstools at the thrift store, and I knew they had a lot of potential! I gave them a quick and easy makeover and now they're absolutely gorgeous. If you love this project, you can see more easy and affordable DIY ideas on my blog, Love & Renovations.
These pumpkins are so cute. They are super versatile and take under an hour to make.Depending on the size and the amount of pumpkins you do this project can take you from 20 minutes to 2 hours to make. (not including setting times) A small 6″ pumpkin will be in the 20 minute range. Take into consideration that I mixed my concrete in small batches by hand (with a metal spoon). So it took a bit longer than if I would of had a mixing attachment to help mix my concrete. I’m sure that would shorten my projects time almost in half.Total Cost : $17-$20.(price may very. Depending on what you already have at home. My pumpkins cost me around $17 to make)
Before this house, I’d never lived anywhere that had a real mudroom. And although our mudroom is small, I just love it - especially since we've recently revamped it.The first issue we tackled was shoe storage (which, let's face it, you can never have enough of).We started with an ugly little shelving unit that came with our house. Apparently, the old owners didn't want to take it.And actually it fits perfectly between the back door and the mudroom's north wall.
