If you have a tiny kitchen... I'm here to help! Grab a $5 shutter door from you local Habitat Re-Store, give it a coat or paint, and add over the door hooks and 3M hooks to organize anything from bag clips, take out menus, strainers, BBQ tools, knives, lunch boxes, kitchen towels!

This is a fun project, but not an easy project! Now that's it up on the wall and looking pretty, I can safely say it was worth all the time it took to make. We love it. You need the right tools, a helper, and a lot of patience (and of course license plates) to create this one of kind wall art!
Here's a simple way to make your TP pretty! Best of all, you just need an oatmeal container, brown paper bag, mod podge, and a lamp finial! I used a thin brown sharpie to turn my brown bag into faux wood! Now, my TP gets to sit on my bathroom counter :)
Yep, that's a 10 foot tall tree made out of different diameters of steel round rod complete with colored bottles my mom collected from friends and a few she purchased from the internet. She estimates that it cost about $300 for materials. $150 for the metal and $150 for the colored bottles. Lots more about my mom's DIY bottle tree (and where the bottle tree tradition came from) on the ol' blog.
If you do remove them, why? The husband and I are in a disagreement :) I don't see why you'd want to make an outlet/ light switch an accent? They're not cute.
Do you have a junk drawer in your kitchen that is driving you nuts. Me too. Fix it with balsa wood and a tiny saw. You can make your drawer perfectly fit your stuff. For example, make long compartments for lighters and flashlights or tiny ones for rubber bands and matches.
Earl the squirrel is a clever little guy. He won us over, and made us build him a house filled with lots of food! He used to live in a pot, no lie (see picture below!)The house was up-cycled from scrap wood, and made cute with some paint and wood shims.
So were my parents! They decided to DIY a glass block wall in their shower. They removed the door and made it so there was no step up to the shower. My loves this thing. No more cleaning glass, but it still lets the light in!
With an old tire and a few pieces of wood you can turn what would be trash into an awesome DIY gift for any kiddo! The hardest part of this project is cutting the tire in half! My husband used a reciprocating saw, and be sure to have a metal blade on hand.
