This room started out as a space whose door was shut all the time. My nephew had moved in with us for a short time years ago and that was his room. When he decided to move back home my heart broke in half so I didn’t open the door for a long time.
I was so excited about my new vanity from Lowes that I got this year because it had drawers. Unfortunately, my ginormous hair dryer with diffuser wouldn't fit into the drawers. So I ended up keeping it in the cabinet vanity by itself. When I saw the cabinet door organizer idea on Better Homes & Gardens I put it on my to do list so that my hair dryer would have a dedicated home.
I decided to go bold in my bathroom with bright purple paint paired with creamy white board & batten.
I am absolutely thrilled with how my DIY stained wood shim mirror turned out. I know there are a zillion tutorials out there for making mirrors like this. However, I think I am the only crazy one that sanded and stained 315 wood shims. That part was not for the weak of heart. Me-oh-my! But I love it, I love it, I love it and don’t regret the decision for one minute!
Convert your square fit pit into an outdoor table with a removable top. See the details here. http://www.infarrantlycreative.net/2012/07/outdoor-coffee-table.html. I used my Kreg Jig to build the top and then stained it and put a spar varnish over the top to protect it. This is perfect in the heat when we don't use our fire pit. I love when furniture has dual purposes!
Do you love the tradition of the advent calendar? Here is a creative idea for an advent calendar using Dollar Tree pails and a large board. What kid doesn't love the anticipation of something special each day to countdown to Christmas?
