I love decorating for the holidays, but with small children, it can be difficult. My kids, like most, are very curious and love to touch everything they see. It is especially tempting when you put out a bunch of shiny new things, and then have to constantly tell them “no touch”.Here is a fun idea specifically for the kids; one you can encourage them to play with throughout the Christmas season!
I love it when I find at least halfway decent pieces of furniture on the curb, ready for a little TLC and a whole new look! Someone in my neighborhood had given up hope for this dresser, so I snatched it up.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for, but I hate spending a bunch of money on something that will be stored in a box most of the year. Luckily, I was able to make these witch’s legs with items I already had.
Here is part 2 of my skylight-to-table tutorial. This is how we made the skylight into a table. Part 1, painting the skylight to look like stained glass, can be found here.
Our half bath is by far the most used bathroom in our house, mostly by our young children and anyone who comes to visit. When we moved in, it had a pedestal sink and one small cabinet above the toilet. Although the cabinet offered a little storage, it also made the room seem even smaller and kept the area around the toilet in shadow. So, it had to come down.
My neighbor took out some old skylights. One was still in great shape, so we used it for our shed, but the other one had lost the seal between panes, and in between the glass was pretty gross. It had a nice and heavy metal frame, and I didn’t want to see it go to waste, so I decided to make it into a stained-glass look patio table!
I absolutely love outdoor decorations that use wine bottles! Especially blue bottles, but those can be harder to come by. I have colored bottles before using Modge Podge and food coloring for a transparent bottle, or with spray paint for an opaque one, but I wanted something different this time.Luckily, this project only requires supplies that most crafters already have on hand!
Pallet projects seem to be flooding the world of DIY! And why shouldn’t they?! If you are lucky, you can get decent pallets for free and save on the cost of lumber for your projects. The problem with pallets... breaking them down. Luckily, this project doesn’t require all the prying (unless you really want to)!
