I rescued a vintage metal basket, upcycled it, and it now has a new life! Hi, I'm Jenn! I buy old, ugly, and neglected houses and flip them all by myself! It's a crazy, DIY house-flipping life, so come follow along at my blog Bachelorette Pad Flip or on Instagram!
After doing a lot of reading lately on the benefits of house plants in your home, I've been determined to find a way to display them. I love this idea for a plant stand because not only is it extremely budget-friendly and easy to make, but it is seriously trendy and matched the modern decor of my home. If something screams geometric, than I'm all over it! Give this easy planter a try for yourself and start breathing in all of that fresh air from your new house plants.
For many years we have an ikea tv unit, in a beech effect MDF, but sometimes, much as I hate waste I grow to strongly dislike an item. Over the years my taste for interior decor has changed. Modern televisions are growing in size so the search for a new to us tv unit led to considering repurposing a coffee table.
We recently installed a couple of Ring Outdoor Security Cameras at Steph's house as part of our participation in The Home Depot's smart home campaign.These cameras are battery operated, meaning we could install them away from a power source. This gave us a lot more flexibility in their placement.We decided to put them where they could "see" Steph's house rather than "see" out away from it.Take a look at what we did, and how we gave them a bit of camouflage in the form of a birdhouse "slipcover."
I store a lot of things in mason jars all over in our house -- dry goods, candy, and craft supplies in my craft room.
Since I love everything vintage, I use my collection of vintage blue mason jars to store many of my craft and DIY supplies in them.
When I found inexpensive white plastic Ball mason jar lids that look so much nicer in our white kitchen, I updated the jars on our kitchen shelf with these white Ball "storage caps."...
We have one large bathroom in our home. In the bathroom, my daughter and I share a vanity area. Though my son and husband need some stuff we store in our vanity too, like cotton balls and Q-tips. Recently, I added all her makeup to my, now our vanity in the bathroom which made it a little tight in the vanity drawer. So, after rearranging the vanity drawer, I realized I needed to find a place to store the cotton balls and Q-tips that weren't able to fit in the drawer any longer. So, here’s what we did with our mason jar organizing to help remedy this issue.

Today would be a great day to use up a few of those pill bottles that you have been collecting. Why not turn a few into Holiday tree ornaments and be able to add them to your Christmas ornament collection. This is an easy project and will upcycle a few of those plain bottles that have accumulated over time.
We keep our router in our living room, because that’s where we both have our laptops, and the signal reaches everywhere from that place. But the router is such an eyesore! When guests come over, all I can think of is that they're looking at this router. I searched on the internet and found a bunch of posts on how to turn an old broken book into a cover for the router. I thought this would be a good idea. I even checked with my computer savvy friend, who explained that as long as the back was open and the sides had space, the router will still work well. Once I found that out this project was a go.Keep reading for more thorough details!
Like so many of you, I love mason jars and use them quite often in decorating. But I find that I use a ton of the Mason jars but never the lids. Does that happen to you? I literally had a bucket full of Mason jar lids. My daughter and a couple of friends are moving into their first apartment for their Senior Year of College. They are going with beach themed decor, so I decided to make coasters from the mason jar lids.
