These lamps are one of my new favorite DIY craft projects! They are a great craft to make and gift or sell since they are so unique and can be personalized to anyone.And PVC is such a fun item to repurpose. You can make so many different things with a PVC pipe, including these awesome yard birds.To make these lamps you will need:4" pvc pipe (I use schedule 35 - the thinner walled non-perforated sewer drain pipe)a pattern and some taperotary tool with attachments1" thick woodchop saw or a hacksaw for cutting your pipe down to sizejigsawacetone or sander to remove the manufacturers inkdrill1 1/4" hole saw4 1/4" hole sawputty knifecaulksnap-in socket light kit* Your cost for making this project will vary greatly depending upon what tools you already have. I basically only had to buy a 4" pipe and a light socket kit.
Brushed by Brandy said this piece was intimidating as all heck. It was huge and boldly styled, those claw feet make a statement on their own. When I picked this up, my husband wasn't sure what I was thinking! I just look for things that are different, styles I haven’t done before, and well made. This thrift store find met those criteria, so I brought the set home.

This diy boxwood topiary is so simple and fun to put together.
I wanted to add some color and life into our cabin now that the Christmas decorations are down and the cabin feels empty. Since, Valentines Day is the next holiday that I decorate for, I decided to make a topiary with a live ivy plant in the shape of a heart.
If you have a bedroom that needs a little touch to make the room complete, this is definitely a project worth looking into. As a kid, I always loved the thought of a 4-post bed -- there's something princess-y about it I guess. So now, instead of a princess, you can feel like a queen in your castle! :) We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

Finally our side yard makeover is done. And oh boy, did it turn out beautifully! Hopefully, Greg will share the reveal pictures soon, but until then, I wanted to share something unique from our side garden: our new DIY waterdrop solar lights!

Today, we wanted to show you how we dealt with our unsightly hose in front of our office. The obvious solution was to grab a brand spankin’ new hose from the local hardware store, but how do we keep the new hose from following down the same path of entanglement and muck? We knew that one of those plastic wheels would help us make things tidy, but we SO did not want that eye sore to compound the injury that our air conditioner was already creating. Nope. We wanted somethin’ purdy! Since we have been playing around with so many pipe and copper projects, we felt like it was the natural choice for materials. Besides, copper has THE BEST patina when exposed to the elements. Watching it transform slowly over the years from an orangey metal to a bright teal is absolutely amazing! Get ready for some functional garden art!Original Blog PostPhoto Cred: Anya McInroy
