I absolutely love lighting candles at night, especially in the fall. I recently picked up a few new ones, but I’m not in love with the look of the candle jars. The labels are just so big and u-g-l-y and the thought of soaking them to get the labels off sounds like a lot of work.That’s when I came up with this idea for a simple fall candle holder to hide those ugly labels. For the full tutorial, head to this blog post.
First impression is everything to me and after almost 2 years of relocating from New York and moving into our first home in the state of Florida, looking at my garden mess day in and day out...it was time to change everyone’s first impression (about my front yard) for good!!
About a month or so ago, we swapped a couple rooms on the first floor of our house (former playroom became office, former wasted space room became playroom). The new playroom was off the front entry, and had a large opening that we needed to barricade. French doors would have been a great solution EXCEPT they are pricey, and I didn't really want to close the room off entirely. And to buy a gate for that width?? Forget it! So expensive, and I really didn't even like the smaller ones we already had.
If you are anything like me, your family goes through lots of jeans. We love wearing our jeans and then when they are worn out or no longer fitting us we need new ones. But I didn't want to just toss out those worn out jeans, it was time to upcycle them into something awesome.
I know what you're thinking: "Oh great, another Christmas ornament wreath tutorial," BUT my tutorial comes with a twist! I made my wreath one-handed. That's right, a glue gun in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Hazardous, perhaps, but my point is if you prefer your projects to be rather quick and effortless...so much so that you can slam down a shot of tequila while working on it, then read on my friend...
I'm not sure how many of y'all are ready for spring but I'm BEYOND ready for it! I feel like every time I hear a bird chirp, I'm going to look outside and it's going to be summer and 75 degress. Unfortunately, I live in NY so when I currently look outside, all I see is snow. It can't keep me from hoping and wishing though! I was browsing online for kitchen items (for when our reno is finished) and came across a super cute gardening basket from William Sonoma. So I decided to try and create a version for myself without paying top dollar. Once springtime arrives, I will be armed and ready for gardening. Even though I'm not a sewer, I was pretty happy with how this little project came out.We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
I have been drooling over arch mirrors for awhile now. There have been a few on the local auction sites but they were tall and skinny and selling way over my budget. So when THIS mirror came up in my Facebook newsfeed, for sale in a local buy & sell group, I jumped on it asap. My bartering instincts always overtake me and I bartered and immediately another buyer offered the lady full price. I could have kicked myself! Imagine my surprise when not too long afterwards I received an inbox saying I could have it! Yay, me!!!It is a heavy, solid wood Bombay mirror! Gorgeous, isn't it?? I hung it as is to get an idea of how it would look there where I wanted it.

This past week, I came up with a project that I wanted to try for my mother's upcoming birthday. How about a wall of photo plates? Great idea and the plates make beautiful decorations!
I bet you have at least one license plate hanging around somewhere. Once you start to make gifts it becomes a habit. And it starts to become expected. So what can you get that car enthusiast guy? Yup, it’s birthday time for my ‘cars-and-everything-about-cars’ son. How appropriate is it that this license plate is from the vehicle he spent most of his childhood in… oh the memories…
I started with a curbside find, an old dresser that was missing a drawer. By cutting down the dresser's height, adding a seat and cushion, and adding width to the door with a 2 by 4's. I added a shelf, some hardware and voila! And made a beautiful Hall Tree Bench. But wait! That is not all, I also used the other part of the dresser and made another beautiful bench.
I took part in a thrift store swap with my fellow DIY bloggers to create some inspiring pieces. You can read the whole story on the blog (if you wish), but I had to upcycle two items - an old drawer and an empty pickle jar. I decided to make it pretty and turn it into a beautiful spring centerpiece at a fraction of cost (using items I already had at home). If you are re-creating this, I promise it will not cost you too much!
