I love tin can projects! With this quick and easy project, I literally painted a couple of tins, once dry I added some rub on decals, a wrap or 2 of twine and a wire handle. And I have a couple of cute functional storage cans! These are my favs!!!
I'm sort of a commitment-phobe when it comes to decorating. But I loved all the ikea spice racks used as forward facing bookshelves that I saw all over the blogosphere. I just couldn't decide where to hang them in my house! So, I hung them on my son's dresser.
If you're in need of storage but don't want to go out and buy a cheap, plastic cabinet or drop a bunch of money on a nice storage cabinet, here is a great solution! This crate storage unit is both functional and a piece of unique, rustic decor. I love the way it turned out!
I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome the dollar store is! If you know your way around the dollar store then you can create pretty much anything! You can take something so cheap looking and turn it into an amazing piece for your home. Take this jewelry stand for instance. I made this jewelry stand yesterday on beautiful, sunny afternoon. It was so nice out that I just had to be out in the sun, so I thought I would bring my project outside. This is a super easy DIY, and it cost me under $10 to make, so you can’t beat that!! Let’s dig right in and get started!
Growing up, I always admired the Hudson’s Bay point blanket that adorned my great aunt's bed – with it’s iconic stripes! When I saw this knock-off at my local Value Village, I grabbed it and knew then and there that Hudson’s Bay stripes would make their way into our project (the second makeover of a Singer sewing table).If you’re a visual learner and would rather skip the tutorial, watch the video :)
I took a window frame that had no glass and a broken wooden country shelf thingy - you know the kind, front he 1990's and took it a part and cut it down. I married the two together using my nail gun and a few screws. It took all of 20 minutes. Then, it sat...for 2 months. In my room, starting at me day in and day out. Long for me to finish it. Taunting me. organizer
I love using command hooks around my home and I recently realized that I don’t know if I’ve ever actually mentioned them on the blog! What an oversight for someone who likes to share tips to make life easier around the house! Command hooks are so easy to use, it almost feels like I’m cheating when I should probably come up with my own DIY solution, but they’re just so darn handy that I keep coming back to them again and again.
While out exploring with my husband on a trip to Colorado, we found the remnants of an old barn. I was excited to see that there was a bunch of barn wood to pick up that we could create some treasures from.
If you are someone who loves to create on a budget, this is the project for you. Best of all this project is easy to make, inexpensive and only requires 4 main materials.
My buffet isn't wide or roomy enough for all the must needs that go w/holiday coffee. This is a new area for my coffee, moved some things around. I needed something to temporarily house my holiday souvenir cups I got while overseas Christmas markets. Each Christmas markets have their souvenir cups. So I looked online to find inspiration to make a 3 tier stand.
This is a project of mine I started two years ago. The best jeweleryframe ever.
It's beautiful and it gives you a perfect overview! No clutter, no stress, relax and pick the earrings, the necklace, the bracelet that fits the outfit of that day!
I needed some storage containers for my new craft room but I didn't want to buy more plastic bins so I decided to up-cycle some cardboard boxes to make decorative storage containers instead.
I found some outdated 80's style curbside cabinets and an ugly coffee table for free and transformed them into a"mostly" French inspired armoire and buffet area using homemade chalk paint and five lovely graphics from one of my favorite sites Karen - The Graphics Fairy. (Sorry for the picture quality as my camera is on the fritz so these were taken with my cell phone)
My laundry room tends to be a bit messy and it is officially on my list to organize and beautify this year! I had an idea one night as I was falling asleep that I couldn't wait to implement! I knew it would be the perfect solution to getting rid of my big ugly laundry detergent containers and that I'd be one step closer to creating a pretty space to do laundry in!

An easy idea to create a recycled storage basket! You gonna need a plastic container (I used a bleach bottle but anything you have around should work), felt and embroidery thread.
I use the mason jar storage shelf to hold hair ties which I sell in my online shop. They would also be perfect for storing small craft supplies such as clothespins, beads, rhinestones or other small supplies. I started with a shelf I purchased and then screwed the lids to the bottom.
I have been struggling with the wet clothes and wet towels out of the pool. Where to put them? Also, the pool noodles, they were not always accessible.. I had a solution that solved both issues with a pallet !!!
