DIY Window Bench With Storage

Today I’m going to show you how my husband built a window bench with storage for our master bedroom.I’ve had this project burning in the back of my mind for a long time.

Halloween is around the corner and now is a perfect time to starting making decorations. I was looking to make a wreath to decorate my front door, something spooky but not scary.

This wreath was perfect and was something that I wanted to purchase however it’s no longer available; it was released last season.

DIY Decorative Wall Baskets

My husband and I’ve worked in our dining room about a year ago, and while it looks lovely we were planning to do a lot more but just haven’t found the time to do it. While the room construction is on hold, there’s nothing stopping me from decorating the walls and improving the room’s natural appeal. With our nine-foot walls being cut in half by the chair rail (boards) I knew finding decorative elements to fit the space wasn’t going to be easy. At first I thought that a little artwork would be perfect for the room, however, I didn’t quite find the pieces I was looking for. After a week or so of searching, I settled on going DIY, which was always in the back of my mind. More info on avantimorocha.com

DIY Decorative Plate Wall - Thrifting

It took me a long while but I’ve finally made my own plate wall, which I love.This is a really affordable project and it looks amazing and I’m not sure anyone would be able to guess that something so lovely could cost less than $45. I purchased all of my plates at the thrift store (Goodwill and Salvation Army). Hanging the plates is the most expensive part of this project. I was going to buy dish hangers but after checking the reviews and prices I decided to go DIY.

About meI'm a proud Latina, I studied architecture and urban planning. While I studied more structural design for dense metropolitan areas I can remember being in love with crafting from an early age; I simply loved activities that requires creativity. As a child I recall painting, drawing murals and making my own decorations, which was likely why I was so drawn Architecture. When I moved to the USA I switched my path to graphic design. I also found my passion in blogging and building crafty products with a flare for architecture.
