Making a side table without power tools sounds kinda crazy, right? This project takes zero power tools, less than 30 minutes of hands on work and is super simple. And bonus – it’s a piece that we still use every single day. Want to make your own side table? It only take a few supplies (and I bet you already have some of them on hand!)
We love to make mosaics and we especially love making them with resin. The clear resin lets the mosaic design really shine through. If you've never tried resin before, have no fear. It's all about mixing the two parts of the resin. And we'll show you how!
Finding this small desk turned out to be just the right piece to try the gold dipped technique that I had been drooling over for so long. This makeover was done several years ago but I came across some old pics before I even knew about blogging and thought this was share worthy. So here is how this project went down!I started this project in the usual fashion by cleaning and sanding any areas that are rough. Especially with this piece because of the metallic that I have planned on using. Metallics are not forgiving with a lumpy bumpy finish. It needs to be super smooth for the gold dipped look so I took my time with it.
I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to learn how to put together beautiful arrangements. Of course - without spending tons of money on flowers or florists. I recently took a flower arranging class and I'm sharing what I learned!
Hey there creative people! Who doesn't love a good yard sale overflowing with old useless treasures? I know I sure do! A couple of weeks ago I went to a local neighborhood yard sale where I found a wooden spice rack for a dollar. I thought to myself that I could definitely give it a new life. Normally I would paint something like this, but I wanted to do something different this time around. My creative wheels in my head started to turn and I remembered that I had a beautiful vintage themed floral fabric. I thought with some perforated lace like fabric and some cup hooks that it could become a jewelry organizer.
Who's ready for Christmas???? I know I am! It's time to pack away the Halloween stuff and start gearing up for the most wonderful time of the year! Though I'm sad to say goodbye soon to my favorite time of year (fall), it isn't such a disappointment because I know I can start making and putting out DIY Christmas decor. Wait 'til you see these jolly giant ornaments! I've seen giant ornaments you can hang on your porch but these have a little twist to them.
Who hasn't had a button pop at an inopportune time? Over the weekend when my own button popped I then had to search for the scissors, thread and sewing needle which were scattered around my craft studio. That night, I finished off a container of dental floss and had an epiphany: what if I made a portable sewing kit using the empty container? It already had a built in 'thread' cutter and I could store thread and a needle all in one convenient spot! First I peeled off the lable from the face of the container.
This was a very nice shade till the cat knocked over the lamp and busted the bracket. So I love the shape and needed a basket.
Sometimes I stroll through the thrift store and pick out items that catch my eye, even if I don't exactly know what I'm going to do with it when I buy it. This copper mold was one of those purchases, but once I put my patio umbrella through it to test if it would fit, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
