I love this time of year. The crisp weather, scents of campfires, comfort food, and vibrant colors. I especially love sunflowers. I am also a collector of all things linking me to my family heritage. My father was a blueberry farmer and I grew up working on that farm. My brother gave me one of the original crates filled with the paper pints that were used back in the 1940's when our farm began. This centerpiece is a tribute to these things that I hold dear.

Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing a project I did a while ago, but one that remains one of my favorite budget wall art ideas! Printing some of our wedding photos as engineering prints :) (If you aren't familiar with engineering prints, they are black and white, printed on regular paper, and are designed to showcase your line drawings and graphics. These over-sized prints promote high-quality black and white line drawings in a variety of sizes. Engineering prints are ideal for architects and builders.)The first thing I did was to print some of my favorite wedding photos using the engineering print method. I had mine printed at a local staples.

This accent wall would be perfect in your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom - the possibilities are endless!To purchase the materials to make this wall REAL brick was going to be around $800. That’s a lot for an accent wall, considering we made a board and batten wall for basically no cost.Because I didn’t want to spend $800, and I wanted the option to be able to remove whatever we put up, I decided faux brick was the way to go.What to know the best part?It only cost $75!(The panels were $75, we had all of the other materials.)MATERIALS:Faux brick panelsDrywall mudDrywall scraperPaint / waterNail gunCircular sawJigsaw
Any search of the terms "paint pouring," "acrylic pouring," or "marbling," will bring up lots of projects and techniques. Paint pouring is a lot of fun and produces amazing and sometimes unexpected results. It's a great project for beginner and advanced DIYers.In this video and post, I'm making a trio of "pumpkins" for a little fall decor.
Many years ago, I found these two outdoor tables at Kohl's for only $2.50 each. I've always been proud of my sweet deal, and knew right away that I didn't have the heart to throw them away when they started looking a bit worse for wear. I knew they needed another chance at being put to work on my patio. I painted them to go with my current patio decor colors and themes of flowers, butterflies and birds, and then went to work on the glass table tops. Because they were to be used outside, I used Outdoor ModPodge (green label). I also had to take into account that since the tables would be 'seen' from the top looking down, that the layers of ephemera would have to be layered from top to bottom. This was a bit harder than it originally seemed. Thankfully, laying it all out and taking a picture BEFORE I set it onto the glass with the ModPodge made the project MUCH easier! The photos really helped me make certain that I'd be able to get all of my prepared embellishments pretty much exactly where I thought they would look the best!
I love to use tin around our home. It's an easy way to add rustic charterer to a door, bar, or wall. What's ideal is finding some good weathered pieces. But that's not always an option. So here is a quick and easy way to distress brand new tin to give it a worn and weathered look to finish off your next rustic project.
I needed to finish the kids decoration in my daughter’s bedroom, which had not headboard when we changed her bed.I show you how I finished the first mountain headboard that we made in stratified wood making the snowy peaks and leaving the bottom part in wood, simply varnishing it.It is easy, very easy, even for those who want to do it in 2 colors and not to let the wood look at the bottom does not have any complications.
