We're making headway on the Curbly House and the next two weeks will bring about a big leap in the transformation we've been dreaming about. We spent much of the last week trying to finalize our choices for kitchen cabinetry, countertops, appliances, and fixtures. While the room reveal won't be ready until later, I wanted to share a peek at what inspired the design.
While it may still feel like summer outside, we can't deny the fact that fall temperatures are right around the corner. And with the new season comes a new opportunity to change out your decor. So today we're sharing three quick and easy ways to dress up your home for fall. Click through to check them out.
I can feel the fall weather approaching, which means it's almost time for scarves, blankets and all things pumpkin spiced! Rather than buying new clothing I don't need this season, I've been looking for ways to revamp the clothes I already have to make them feel like new. I've had a light green scarf for years, and it turned out to be the perfect piece for making this DIY embroidered scarf with a hand-drawn wind pattern along the edges.
Upholstered headboards almost have it all - they look beautiful and they're super comfortable to lean against. But they're often quite pricey too. There's good news though... there are tons of great tutorials out there to help you make your own. So today we've rounded up 20 of our faves. Click through to check them out.
Ahh, autumn. You make me want to light bonfires in my backyard, start drinking cocoa on the daily, and cozy up in anything warm and snuggly. This fall I'm exploring my reignited love of flannel (I'm actually wearing a flannel shirt right now as I write this), and with these local Minnesota temperatures ever on the decline, a DIY flannel throw was in order. I just love blankets - you can never have too many, which makes them a wonderful gift. This one was simple to make too, and ever so comfy.
Summer has ended, school has started, and we are racing towards the finish line on the Curbly House 2017 project. Here's a quick update on what's going on:
IKEA is always a good choice for inexpensive furniture, and many of its furniture and home decor accessories make great bases for DIY projects. Are you planning to revamp your bedroom this season? Even if you're not, you're going to love these IKEA bedroom hacks that make basic products look like brand new, unique pieces!
I've tried multiple techniques for organizing earrings over the years, but dangling earrings tend to be more difficult to organize in an easy-to-manage way. Luckily, this simple DIY concrete earring tree does the trick and makes the perfect spot to hang several pairs of dangling earrings in a way that's easy to grab what I want and head out the door.
Bedrooms are meant to be a place of rest and relaxation, but for many of us, our bedrooms do double duty as sitting areas, nurseries, living rooms, storage, etc. No matter your situation, finding little ways to help yourself relax and get enough sleep could be as easy as getting rid of some things and keeping others. Of course, you know yourself best, so not everything on this list may apply to you. However, it couldn't hurt to try, and maybe you'll find a new way to relax into a good night's sleep!
I'm a pillow hoarder, so it's probably no surprise that I always have extra pillow covers in the house. I swap out my pillows every time I get sick of something, and because purchasing new pillows all the time is an expensive hobby, I've found a surefire way to personalize any pillow with my own designs using inexpensive IKEA pillow covers! The secret: sticker paper and paint.
