The MenDen project is nearly complete, here is the previous post on the rest of the project: http://www.hometalk.com/7069740/menden-basement-finish-all-re-purposed-materials I added a couple of sliding “barn style” doors. To keep the costs down I used some simple parts from HomeDepot to hang them. I think they turned out pretty cool.
This is a fun little decor piece that I created for Easter. It's a German Glass Glitter Easter Egg. I have a free Printable, for the Sheet Music Bunny, on my blog, so that you can make your own! http://www.graphicsfairy-diy.com/2013/03/make-german-glass-easter-egg.html
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!
I saw this technique on Unicorn spits Facebook page and wanted to try it for myself. I have tried it in the past on the outside of the vase but mine always looked like something the cat threw up. This method was so easy and quick I had to share it.
I was determined to figure out how to get a light for less than $20. Y’all know I’m a cheapskate. But, in the end, I won, because I figured out how to get the modern style light I was craving for a fraction of the price. Yes, this is the tale of how to turn a lantern into a light fixture.
Grab my plans for this beautiful bench for your entry, the end of your bed, or even a living room.Want to know how to build an upholstered bench? You’ve come to the right place. This pretty bench looks like something you’d find at your favorite home stores, but will save you hundreds of dollars. AND at 49″ x 19″, it’s perfectly scaled for your king or queen bed. I built this bench for the end of my bed, but after having this in my Dining Room and Entry, I have to say, it’d really work in any room. In fact, I may have to build 2 smaller versions for my currently boring entry.This build was completely inspired by those chunky legs. Those beautiful table legs were given to me by Osborne Wood Products. Gorgeous, right? They were actually designed with Ana White for this great coffee table build from Shanty 2 Chic. If it wasn’t for my daredevil boys, I would have built that coffee table. But coffee tables have been banned from our living room until the boys grow out of the jumping off of everything stage. So 20 years or so, right?
So much a window can do for us. Bring us light, dark, joy, scenery, seasons, little bits of everything. Because of some of the things I listed, I decided to try my hand at a Christmas Window, to bring me joy and season. It was easier then I thought and you can do them for other holidays and occasions to. But for now, I bring you Christmas, just a tiny bit early.

Megan at 'the homes I have made' transformed her bedroom with painted furniture and new accessories. What I found striking in this room setting is the metallic silver mirror. Bought for over $120 (R1000), you can easily make this beautiful mirror at a fraction of the cost with a few materials and supplies that can be found at your local hardware store
My old foam pumpkins were starting to show their age after years of being put outside during the fall. I decided to upcycle them. I started by painting them as they were pretty beat up. Out came my stash of craft paints and i painted the first one white and then put some green paint on and wired with a wet paper towel.
