This corner in Ryan's room was missing something. But I couldn't decide what. When I thought about what she really loved, I knew it had to do with books! This little girl has so many books but no where to enjoy them!So I set out to make her the cutest little reading nook you ever did see!
This project has been a long time coming and took us a total of 6 months from start to finish. My husband and I did all the work ourselves without hiring out a single bit of it. It's a lot of work living in an 1800's farmhouse but we're passionate about restoring it and this was a room we've wanted to renovate from the very beginning.
You read that right! No stain, no polyurethane, just plain ole oil!When we started our laundry room renovation, I knew I wanted to save the floors. This used to be the front porch, and over 150+ years, it's taken a beating and had some pretty bad stains and gaps. I knew that with a good sanding a great finish, they could look beautiful so we opted to save them and ignore everyone who told us not to!
Another save from the burn pile! I eyed this sad little cabinet and didn't honestly think it could be saved, but it was free so I took it home with me. It sat in our living room for about a month until I finally set to work to make it good as new again!
$0. That's what this project cost us. And a total time of one hour to design, cut and assemble it. Hubby and I agree, this is by far our easiest project ever! And probably one of our favorites.Maybe you've noticed the potting bench fad filling up your Pinterest feeds? I fell in love. And I knew we had enough plants to make use for it, not to mention the fact that I can style this thing super cute with party favors, drinks and food when we have guests over!
Are you the type of person who sees those beautiful spring/summer wreaths hanging up in the store, and your jaw drops at the price tag?! Me too!Are you the type of person who doesn't want to spend time making a wreath? Me too! If you answered yes to both of those questions, then I promise this project is for you! I even added a spin on this wreath, and used a basket!
My good friend called me over because her father-in-law had a trailer full of junk. When I got there she had these amazing singer sewing drawers waiting for me. They needed some serious work but I knew they had potential. I've seen so many people repurposed these as nightstand cubbies so I wanted to give it a try myself!
My in-laws brought me the cutest little desk, but it was in serious need of a makeover. The paint was old and chippy and it was an ugly brown. It was the perfect size for my two year old so I grabbed some paint and got to it!
We just installed a vintage door in our bedroom and I knew this room needed a little something else to go with it. I had an old window laying around and just needed to find some artwork to go in it. I ordered this cow butcher poster (affiliate link) here and some elmer's spray adhesive (affiliate link) and had this DIY finished in less than 5 minutes!
We all have had one, and they make your living room an eye sore. I have an ugly couch and always thought there was no way to cover it up or make it look cozy. I'm sharing a few tips and tricks I've learned along the way to help you style an ugly couch.
