This was a very nice shade till the cat knocked over the lamp and busted the bracket. So I love the shape and needed a basket.
The kitchen is the hub of our house. This is evidenced by the hodge podge of things you will find in my kitchen on any given day. It is near impossible to keep counters cleared off, so I’ve stopped fighting it and have hunted for practical counter top storage solutions.After a couple of failed attempts, I decided to go the DIY route and bought some Dollar Tree storage bins. My mission was to make them look pretty.
We were creating a laundry and dressing room combo out of a bedroom. We wanted something a little different and maybe even a bit fun in an industrial sort of way... This post focuses on the window portion of the laundry - dressing room makeover.
**Update** I had some questions regarding using this on double pane windows so after a lot of research. I went to www.buydecorativefilm.com and found a quote that said it was safe for dual paned glass. There were a lot of reviews on Amazon and I couldn't find one that said it was a problem for their double pane windows but if in doubt, contact a professional window tint installer. ** When we bought this house a year ago, it was the house of many firsts. One first, was the fact that this house had windows on the garage. We had never had a garage with windows before. And you know what they say about first impressions. Every time someone walked to our front door, they would pass these windows first. When I set up the garage, I put a shelf in front of the window, because almost most of the other wall space had pegboards already on them. I put it in front of the window and I proceeded to load it with just about every paint can that I had. Every time I walked by the garage, I groaned but was too lazy to move the shelf and ALL THOSE cans of paint. So, I sent my husband to buy blinds. Either he bought the wrong size or I measured wrong and it was probably the latter. But, I hated seeing the inside of the garage so much, I attempted to put them up anyway. I don't know why we didn't take them back and get the right size. I think I just wasn't happy with how the blinds looked so it didn't matter. I am not sure how I came across this mirror window film but it looked like it might be the perfect solution for me.

On rainy days, like we've been having so many of lately, it's always fun looking around the house to see what you can get into and make! Don't you just love a project that uses stuff you already have and cost next to nothing to make - like this adorable flower basket cart made out of newspaper? Just perfect for summertime! Here's how you can make one, too! Let's begin by making lots of newspaper tubes!
There are a lot of cardboard box ideas all around the internet but not many tutorials on how to make fabric liner with divisions so I thought I will share my take on how to make the DIY basket with a compartment. Also, I am challenged myself to use what I have on hand to make two DIY baskets( One as a diaper caddy and one as snacks basket). Because at 38 weeks pregnant, I couldn't craft much and also don't have the mood to go shopping for new supplies. But as a DIYer, I just couldn't simply pass time by watching videos or shows all the time. So, I took a lot of time(almost 4 to 5 days) to finish these baskets. You might find a different combination of supplies used here to make a single basket, that is because of the de-stash challenge that I created for myself to avoid shopping for new craft supplies.
I recently got given a huge pile of old magazines, which when added to the stack I already had at home, made me realise that we really needed to come up with some crafty ideas to use them up! There are a few different ways you can make baskets out of recycled magazines, this basket weave design is probably the simplest and quickest, and I love the checkered pattern which it creates.
Chances are you already have a basket in your home that would be much more useful if it were lined. I can sew, but I can only sew straight lines. The idea of sewing a liner for a round basket was a little intimidating at first. I figured out how to do it and I am going to share it with you.
Have ever wanted to build a piece of furniture with reclaimed wood? Then priced out the cost of reclaimed wood? No THANK YOU! I am going to show you how to make a potion for aging new wood. Guess WHAT? You can do it for way cheaper than buying reclaimed wood, roughly around $10.00! This post is pretty short and to the point because well....it's sooo super easy!
