Do you have one of those plastic storage bins lying around? You know, the ones we use for moving, storing decorations and tucking away clutter? I've found another great use for these bins - a toy box! Create a playful toy box with a bin, fabric and a little glue.
Hi Everyone, today we are in Zari's room and muffin is also joining us. I wanted to make an adorable idea I saw about how to build a toy organizer for Zari's toys using Dollar Tree buckets! It looks really cute and works so well as well. Each compartment is for different toys and keeps things very organized. I decided to build the pyramid from 6 buckets and have three levels but you can build it as high as you would like. So are you ready to DIY? Here we go. For this project all you need are a few colored baskets from the dollar store and sharped edged object to make holes, and zipties to secure the buckets to one another. Projects with convenient items that you can just pick up at a local dollar store are my favorites!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.
Are you tired of replacing the cloth top. On your gazebo? Yeah, me too. It's annoying and expensive so I decided to come up with a more permanent fix. As y'all know once I get an idea in my head there's no stopping me. Like the time I made a DIY Pallet Fireplace in my living room where there wasn't one lol. I'm obviously not afraid of big projects and you shouldn't be either. This one just took some basic tools, easy to get materials, and determination.
I love wood crates. I find that I can use and reuse them again and again. I decided with fall settling in, that my front door area could use some refreshing. I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I decided to look at repurposing things that I already had to recreate a whole new look. I only spent $18 on plants and $5 on a can of spray paint and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Giving these old TV Tray Tables a fresh new look with a simple makeover means they won’t be hidden away now. I’ve had these trays for years and they do come in handy at times, but they were in need of a new look. A couple of coats of paint and stencils took them from looking old and dated to fresh and new.
Im new here to Hometalk but do look at it daily thru e mails and enjoy it and it does give me many ideas to do DIY ! So here is my latest project I decided to post for the first time.

With three kids of different ages, the toys in my house are multiplying fast. Because of this, I’m always on the look out for practical toy storage ideas (see .I decided to tackle the soft toys mess in my daughters bedroom first.Instead of keeping them in your average big container, I decided to build this hanging soft toy storage shelf just above her bed.

The second room we have done with plywood plank flooring. The first one was done staining each plank then when they were all dry, we installed them. This time, we installed the planks then stained all at once. Wow! Should have done it like this the first time. Only took about 30 minutes to stain the 9 x 11 room.We used 3/4" 7 ply plywood again, but this time got Home Depot to make the cuts (each 4 x8 sheet cut into 6" x 8' strips) We sanded the planks to give a beveled edge to them, then cleaned off the dust for staining.We used "Liquid Nails" on the back of each board and tacked each one down with 18 guage 1.5" nails. After all the boards were nailed down, we used a pole and pad to apply the stain. We let that dry for 12 hours, then applied the polyurathane the same way. We let it dry for 12 hours before applying the second coat. This time, we opted for a 3rd coat of poly. We then let that "cure" for 4 days before moving furniture on it.Two rooms down, now for the rest of the house...
I have eczema on my hand, and most bulk soaps in stores make it worse. I have to take my own soap with me when I go to the store. Rather than dealing with a liquid that can spill or a bar soap that can get messy, I make single use soaps. Since it's fall, I decided to use silk fall leaves to make soaps.
I hate throwing away the nice jars and lids from the candles I burn in my home. So I came up with a way to revitalize them into something pretty to hold gifts or sit on the shelf for storage. I am a constant DIY'er so I have most items around the house to do this project.
How to EcoPrint on Paper – Learn how to print beautiful papers using leaves and flowers with this step by step Eco Printing TutorialLast year, I started my venture into eco printing with leaves, stems and flowers gathered in my garden which I then printed onto silk chiffon and cotton fabric. Those prints turned out to be awesome – I even eco printed some t-shirts for friends.This time, I experimented with Ecoprint on Paper. I used plain, white cardstock paper which I soaked in alum to mordant. I also used iron and copper (modifiers) to shift or ‘sadden’ the color. Both worked really well to strengthen and bring out the color of the leaves and flowers.(Note: Iron and Copper modifiers take about 2 weeks to make so plan accordingly)(See full step by step instructions at the FiberArtsy.com link below.)
