Want to have a fun double date for Valentine's day, but just can't get out?! No problem! Stay home! This tablescape including the three projects involved, cost me under $30 to make and since it's rustic and yet beautiful, it calls for a rustic dinner as well! Roasted chicken and potatoes anyone?! (That's well within MY budget!) Check out the link to see the details!
This gorgeous green and white Easter tablescape is very budget friendly! I used pieces from Dollar Tree, Target dollar spot, Michaels and At Home to put this together! It’s a very simple yet elegant Easter tablescape thanks to the crisp white, bright green and gold accents.
A few years ago, we bought my husband’s childhood home. We’ve been working our way room by room renovating and Dre modeling our house into a home. We have a 15 foot wide stone fireplace in our living room. The fireplace was dark, gray, and dirty looking. Even after cleaning the stone with TSP, it still looked dull, worn and dirty. I had mentioned to my husband that I would like to paint the stone. He objected. Then, one day he says, “You know, if you want to paint the stone fireplace, I’d be okay with that.” It took me two seconds to jump on that project.
Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.
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.
This isn't your run of the mill staircase makeover, I wanted to achieve a rustic unfinished look for the staircase leading up to our bonus room. Since it was covered in gross carpet, I pulled the carpet away and found potential with some beautiful 2x4 yellow pine. Here is how I finished off our staircase during our staircase makeover.
We are having a Halloween party this year and before I get to all the house cleaning and yard work, well I had to make a few decorations! With these upcycled pumpkins I am calling the front display complete. And I am out of excuses for postponing my other chores.
So years ago I saw a coffee table that had a mosaic wood pattern that slowly transitioned from a darker wood to a lighter wood. It’ been stuck in my mind ever since, there's just something about that style that I find so cool and attractive. I also happened to need a set of new nightstands. I decided this was an oppurtunity to finally try and recreate that coffee table I saw years ago, but put my own twist on it!What a project this was. Let me tell you, this probably took me close to a month to finish. I was only working on it in my spare time on weekends and after work, since my day job has been really busy lately. Definitely one of my longest projects, but totally worth it! I’m really happy with how it all turned out!If you like this build and my photography check out my Instagram. I offer daily bite sized content on instagram and try to make myself available to answer as many questions as possible! Find me @zacharyms
I'm sure if you look around in your cupboards you will find one or two of these, we all have them. By them I mean the silver serving platters. I inherited mine and held on to them. Never actually used them for what they were supposed to be used for, but I loved the shape of them. So when I was searching for the perfect frame for my beloved Grandma's pictures these immediately came to mind. My Gramma lived to the beautiful age of 103. She passed last November due to complications from a fall. Up until then she was blessed with good health and was able to live in her own home. I was given a picture of her when she was a young girl of 13 and I had the picture of her already of her at 103. She is deeply missed but these pictures help fill that void and are a reminder of what a remarkable woman she was.
Steph has a tub that she only uses for storage, never bathing! It's a great place for storing bathroom essentials, but it's an eyesore.She came up with an idea to hide the storage without damaging the tub or limiting it's intended use.Head to 3:33 in the above video to see the Fast DIY project.
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.
Hi, I'm Amber Oliver! I hope if you enjoy this project you'll also stop by my blog!When you hear "builder grade" you probably have the same yellow/beige color I'm thinking of come to mind. You've seen those boring bathroom mirrors that are essentially just glass stuck to the wall. I teamed up with a Hometalker who had FIVE of these mirrors in her house and knew she needed an easy way to transform them.If you're in the Houston area, I can help you create this look for your home!
