Hi Everyone, today we are in Zari's room and muffin is also joining us. I wanted to make an adorable idea I saw about how to build a toy organizer for Zari's toys using Dollar Tree buckets! It looks really cute and works so well as well. Each compartment is for different toys and keeps things very organized. I decided to build the pyramid from 6 buckets and have three levels but you can build it as high as you would like. So are you ready to DIY? Here we go. For this project all you need are a few colored baskets from the dollar store and sharped edged object to make holes, and zipties to secure the buckets to one another. Projects with convenient items that you can just pick up at a local dollar store are my favorites!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
Do you have one of those plastic storage bins lying around? You know, the ones we use for moving, storing decorations and tucking away clutter? I've found another great use for these bins - a toy box! Create a playful toy box with a bin, fabric and a little glue.

I recently made a custom bed and decided I wanted to make a bed skirt that fit the measurements of the bed. I made these to fit a king size bed, which is 19 inches off of the floor. You could easily adjust the size to fit any size bed at any height.
I don't know about you, but I love decorating with birch bark and birch branches for Christmas. It is so beautiful and textured; perfect for the neutrals of farmhouse decor and perfect to set off green and red if you like more traditional decor.
Today I am sharing an easy method to refurbish wood furniture without sanding or stripping the old finish. The dresser I am working on is from the early 1900's and is in very rough shape.

Deciding on a coffee table style is hard, y’all. Like, I have seriously been back-and-forth about what type of coffee table I want in this space probably since we moved in about three years ago. For a while I wanted a tufted ottoman but then decided that wasn’t super practical with two kids who like to rub food and crayons on everything. Then I wanted something more modular that could double as seating when people came over but again changed my mind. Ultimately I decided that a DIY farmhouse style coffee table would be the best fit for my space. This coffee table is both beautiful and functional and I will walk you through how to make your own!
Guests are coming and Thanksgiving is only a week away. My dining room needs a new look, STAT! I had purchased two pub style table years ago (they were cheap and I was on a tight budget). Pushed together they make a decent dining room table for when guests come for dinner. But I'm over it. Its plain, and I'm ready for a change...but surprise surprise, I'm still on a tight budget! Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...
We just moved into our home a few months ago and it definitely needed some updating. We decided to start in the kitchen with new appliances. Black stainless beauties 😍 That's when we really noticed how "80's" our kitchen cabinets were! They were in good shape, just wrong color. So we decided to just paint them! The hinges were terribly dirty with a film over them and brass colored. So here's a step by step how I quickly cleaned them and then painted them to match the black stainless appliances....
This year my daughter's teacher asked for any Christmas donations. I wanted to create a little DIY gift, so I thought it was the perfect moment to try this little project. My hope is that she can use it all year.Did I mention is was only < $10 ( A little Math for you) Hope you enjoy!
I have a love hate relationship with coasters! They are necessary to preserve the beauty of our furniture, but *sigh* why are they so lacking in design and proper functionality? I decided it was time for me to figure out a better coaster design for my house. I thought about all the issues of coasters I have previously used...cardboard and cork seems to just get soppy wet (and let's face it, leave an even bigger ring), flat tile ones (so pretty, but the condensation just puddles and runs off)...what to do what to do?! Hmmm...a saucer?! Terracotta flower pots have those nice saucers....not very pretty though. Wait! I can fix that.
I saw these DIY Christmas balls made from beach balls online and thought they looked easy to make (and they were, thanks to the tutorial). But first I had to go to 1 Target and 2 different Walmarts to find beach balls. I live in FLORIDA people. You’d think every Walmart and Target in this area would have beach balls year round. But, nope! The 2nd Walmart I visited did the trick. I bought 4 balls.
