Using lumber, create a great wood kitchen or bathroom countertop for a FRACTION of the cost of other countertop materials!
I was searching and searching for the perfect solution for my rental kitchen. I wanted to update it without losing my deposit. Tic Tac Tiles are sticky enough to last until you decide to move or change them out. They can easily be removed by applying heat and lifting/peeling them off the wall.
In this project, I’ll be sharing my experience with creating a neat little epoxy resin table for my two-year-old daughter. The back story is she loves to follow me from room to room, and I love having her around me. Being a content creator I am always on the computer trying to get work done. As long as I'm in her sight that’s enough. I made her a desk awhile back, but that was too bulky to lug around. This is why this table came about. For our purpose, it’s a kids table for others this would make a perfect nightstand or end table. The same concept can be applied to any surface. The resin I’m using is from countertop epoxy there is certainly many brands out there this is the one I have experience with. I went with epoxy because it’s durable and easy to maintain. The more layers you have the more you can wet sand it to remove scratches. I used Countertop epoxy" Click Here "
We love to make homemade gifts for family and friends and think these pretty little fabric covered flowerpots fit the bill perfectly. They are simple and cheap to make but look fabulous paired with a lovely plant as a thoughtful gift.
Cement DIYs have been super on trend for a while, but somehow I haven't got around to make anything with this material before. I actually found it surprisingly easy and inexpensive, making the mold out of cardboard is free and the pack of cement, for me was less than 3€.
Create your own backsplash by stamping designs onto your current "ugly" or "dated" backsplash. This even works in rentals since you can wipe it all off with warm water and a scrub sponge.
Yet it is durable enough to withstand the normal wear and tear of daily use. Surprisingly, grease won't stick to it so it's very easy to clean. Use only mild soap and water to clean (no harsh scrubbing).
In this project, I'll show you how to make colored cement eggs, which are especially popular this time of year with Easter and Spring just around the corner. Of course, these cement eggs can be used to decorate your home throughout the year.
These adorable Mini Concrete Succulent Planters are made from balloons and cement and are easy to make. Darken the cement with colorant for a vibrant contrast with the succulents! These are a spin off of my original on ArtsyPrettyPlants.com.
NEW on Hometalk: You can now hire me to help you recreate this project! Need some guidance to make sure your cabinets come out perfectly? Book me for a one-on-one video session now.One of my very best friends wanted to give her kitchen a complete overhaul and it was nothing short of spectacular! The kitchen was in excellent shape, so there was no reason to get new cabinets. They just needed a fresh look! Also, why pay thousands of dollars on new cabinets when you can do a DIY and spend some time with your awesome friend (me, duh)!
If you've got an ugly counter top like we did, change it up instead of replacing it. Save hundreds of dollars and do like we did....paint it to look like granite. It sure beats the lime green it used to be!
We painted our countertops..again. If you're wondering why in the heck I put put paint on our countertops, get ready to be shocked!We partnered with Giani to create these awesome counters. We had used their product once before but I was ready for a change and was over the brown look, so we chose to use their Sicilian Sand kit to redo our counters. Let's take a look at the before!Don't forget to check out my FULL POST with a full step-by-step tutorial and videos too so you can recreate this project!!
In our basement, we have a built in cabinet/counter area that used to be part of a kitchenette that we ripped out during our basement renovation. We decided to keep this built in, because I thought it would be perfect for a snack/beverage area to use when entertaining. The only problem is that it was painted the ugliest shades of brown and tan that you could find, the cabinet doors were old and had some wear, and the hardware was outdated. But I was going to change this!
In this video series we start by making the kitchen Island with left over flooring that we had left from when we built or house in May of 2015. The other BIG INSPIRATION for the kitchen Island was the weathered corbels that we found at a local antique shop. Once we had those items the rest of the project fell right into place.
When we moved into our home the wall behind our stove was dominated by heavy, imposing cabinetry that made the ceiling feel low and the room feel cramped. I had in mind the look I was going for and I knew I could achieve the style I was going for on a budget.Here is the "before" photo....I was able to remove the cabinetry and tile the whole wall from counter to ceiling. I had found a vent/fan at Ikea in the AS IS for 50% off. It's designed to be an under cabinet mounted vent/fan and it vents to the outside of our house.
My kitchen was just tacky. Peeling blond cabinets w pink laminate counters! UGLY!! So without much money I did my 1st project and the result is amazing!
This picture is the final look and after 18 months they still look the same. Everyone who comes to my place fawns all over these counters. Ooh ah. Lol.
