Raised garden beds seem to be the in thing in gardening these days and there are lots of options out there to purchase but they are pricey . A 4x4 bed averages around $50, and let's face it that's not alot of space for a garden. My mom wanted to expand her raised bed this year and after searching for decent size ones and not finding any reasonably priced I decided to make my own. I remembered seeing roofing panels a lifetime ago when you could actually go into a store... Still not open here in Ontario Canada. Anyhow at the time I thought that would make an awesome raised bed. So I did some online shopping/ curbside pickup and got me a some roofing panels.
This year I decided to finally spruce up our lil' yard. After fixing neglected areas and making a much longed-for window box, it's time to tackle one last project: A fan trellis that will both separate our front from the neighbor's and add interest to the fence -- all while holding our trumpet vine in place!
If you are like me and you like to eat outdoor rather than indoor. It doesn’t matter if you are just having your breakfast alone with the songbirds or a big family gathering. It’s always better outside. But, i found my round 4 chairs faux wicker table quite annoying. It’s small and not my style. For that, we thought about something built from scratch. That way we decided on the style, the size, the color and the BUDGET. The one we want is an 8 to 10 chairs capacity depending of the size of chairs. it’s exactly eight feet long, 42 inches wide and 28 inches high.If you have a small knowledge in working with wood this project is for you. Also if you are used to use the following tools the work gonna be much easier for you. You will use the miter saw, the kreg jig and the drill. We really didn’t use any extraordinary technique or tools to build it.I was inspired by the pottery and barns farmhouse table design. It has a beautiful X brass legs and along board as a table top we added a thin frame all around to bring everything together. For the table top boards we bought a specific wood boards that facilitate the assembly. They can go into each other without leaving any gap. I know how frustrating to get those beautiful X legs done and all the required tools and techniques. Here we did a little trick to have it done. Clever husband hhhh.the general cost of this table is 210 dollars. Did I Said 210$? Yes, that Includes wood boards, screws, stain and protection formula. A judge table like this will cost not less then 800$ from any store. So you are saving a lot here.
Hanging a rug as wall art is an excellent way to cover a large area of wall in your home with a new texture, I love that instead of another hard surface on the wall like framed art it can add some softness to the walls & sometimes in a less expensive way if you aren’t hanging anything precious. I recently found this rug for $5 (at 5 below) & knew I had the perfect place for it…and you can probably already tell it wasn’t going on the ground! I put a plan together to hang this rug as wall art & it worked out so perfectly that I had to share it with y’all because I just love sharing a good DIY ( you can see them all here).
Flooring is one of the most expensive changes to make in a home, so unfortunately more often than not, renovating a floor is last on everyone’s to-do list. Don’t be like everybody else! Get your floors in tiptop shape without breaking the bank. Here’s the BIG secret that will save you BIG bucks: Floor Stencils! You can paint Floor Stencils directly onto your floor without stripping or refinishing. The paint and pattern effectively hide wear and tear, plus gives the surface some much needed style! So what’s the catch? The only downside is that there are so many pretty stencil designs to choose from! To help you get started, we’ve gathered some of our recent favorites... and that these DIYer’s absolutely love!
I may have mentioned a few - or a million - times how much I love my living room couch. Well, after two years of lovin', my beloved couch was starting to show some wear. The notorious mystery spots were starting to appear and some wrinkles and sags were forming in the cushions. Time to start Mission: Couch Rejuvenation ...
I seen so many beautiful ideas using these old iron sewing machine bases, so my husband & I went picking at the local peddlers market! We found this beauty for only $30.00 dollars! We took it completely apart & re-stored her to her former glory!
This dresser was just plan and kind of boring for Sally. She decided to liven it up. Here is the step by step instructions:
This time of year is the greatest … back out in the garden, in the sun, doing yard work, and mowing. I can get some of my best thinking done while I'm on a mower.I love to repurpose and upcycle, so it's also the perfect time to start pulling out my stuff and making new things for my yard and garden.
In my humble opinion, no fairy creation would be complete without the addition of a few teeny, tiny, magical mushrooms.
I saw a cement planter that someone made using a rain boot and I thought it would be really cute to make a planter out of a Converse high top sneaker. I love experimenting with unique shapes of existing items to make planters out of. Why not a cement sneaker planter?My biggest challenge was actually just trying to find cheap high top converse sneaks. I was hoping to find an old pair at a Goodwill, but I skipped the trip and took the easy way out and ended up getting a pair on eBay for 12 bucks.
I love to transform unwanted and damaged items of a vintage nature by breathing new life into them and when I saw this piece of slate on a string in local charity shop thought it would be a great item to be decorated and be durable for the garden .
I found a picture on Pinterest that I loved as a garden inspiration project. It was fun and whimsical and just the “perk up” that my yard needed. And it had birdhouses, which I love! I used to visit a group board on Pinterest called Grace and Whimsy Guest Gardening Board and it always made me happy. Thisproject proved a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. This was mainly because I wanted everything to be removable so that I can change the decor and flowers easily with the seasons. I have some red, white and blue birdhouses to swap out for the Fourth of July. In the fall, I plan to fill it with pumpkins. I have some fun Halloween repurposed wine bottles to put on top instead of the birdhouses, too. What are seasonal decor ideas that you would incorporate into this planter?
This year, I decided to grow my squash seedlings in a large container instead of planting them directly into the ground. The only problem was that I didn't have a large container. But, searching behind the garage, I found an old, used plastic garbage box. Some time ago, we'd upgraded to a different box, and our curbside waste disposal company hadn't wanted to take the old one back.It would work as a container, but I would definitely have to dress it up!
This wall hanging is a fun project that can to add color and cheer around your home. The basic form is created with sticks or dowels and can be enhanced with wrapped yarn or twine. As long as you have access to sticks, this mandala can be a great addition to your house for little to no cost!
Happy Friday, friends!!! I hope you all have had a wonderful week! Tomorrow is the first day spring! I’m so excited!!!Today, for French Vintage Friday, I’m sharing how I turned a free mirror into a simple trumeau mirror.Here is the mirror that I started with….
I have no idea what made me decide to make a wreath with a tail, or shaped this way, but I just didn’t want to do the same old thing. I kind of think this wreath was a cross between a wreath and a swag.I would love to have you stop by my blog , Celebrate & Decorate for more details as well as sign up for my latest creations, posts, recipes, exclusives, and more...
*This post was sponsored by Basic Coatings, however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.My home is a super dated split level that was originally built in the late 60s with an addition built in the 90s. Unfortunately, there are a lot of dated features, but specifically a ton of orangey oak throughout the home. This is most obvious on my staircases so I decided to modernize the space using these three easy steps.
My mom got this hammock at Kroger few years ago! It was only used for a short while when she intially got it, then it sat in her yard, in the weather for years, and as things do, it deteriorated over time. I always thought it was such a cool hammock because the stand folds up for easy storage, and the hammock is supported by two chains so it’s much easier to sit in than the traditional hammocks that have a single chain to support each end! Follow along on how I gave this old gal a new life!
Chippy old windows might just be one of the most beautiful pieces of décor you can add to your farmhouse-style home! There is something so lovely about the wavy glass in every wooden pane that reminds us of the past and a simpler time.
