I haven't had much time to prepare for fall yet (where'd summer go?) but this project was a super easy and fast way to add a little festivity to the dining room table.
I normally wouldn't give this framed art a second glance, but the size and autumn colors were perfect for Thanksgiving in our dining room. After checking to be sure it didn't have more value than the $4 I paid, I added the words "give thanks" with a Sharpie. Now rather than sit in a pile of junk, it'll serve as a gentle reminder once a year in our dining room.
We're renovating a small apartment and making progress. The bathroom floor was just tiled and a new vanity, sink, toilet and lighting installed. And what a difference paint makes! Time to move on to decorating!
Giving a small apartment a new look on a budget. Painting the cabinets really brightened up the tiny space. With a tight budget, I love the power of paint and the way it can transform so much, don't you?
We painted cabinets, swapped out hardware, painted walls, installed new granite countertops, new zero radius sink and faucets, marble subway tile backsplash, removed vinyl and luan and opted for distressed bamboo when the old original wood floor didn't match up with the plywood addition, removed a pantry and installed a pot rack and French doors. We still need a stove backsplash, baseboards, DIY kitchen island and a larger refrigerator. This is our forever home and we love the change.
My 100th HomeTalk post! Hurray! Always in need of extra storage space, I transformed an awkward room? hall? (small room with 6 doorways) into a functional open pantry for our microwave, dried goods and baskets and awesome DIY industrial pipe shelving. #FarmhouseStyle More details at diyshowoff.com
An old pile of bricks from behind the barn is repurposed for creating a new "old" brick patio and walkways underneath our grape arbor/gazebo. I love the pattern and that this area isn't covered in overgrown weeds. It took all summer long, but my husband did an awesome job! See all of the steps we took to "get 'er done' in the link below.
