These heart-shaped hard boiled eggs have been floating around the Internet for a while now, but I was saving them for this very special time of year when going out of your way to make heart-shaped foodstuffs is normal. Aren't you glad I did??
Going along with our basement and sleeping themes today (because you sleep in clothes/pajamas and washers and dryers are often in basements? I know, it's a stretch...), I thought I'd share this lovely laundry room* makeover from Curbly fave Charles & Hudson!
I love this DIY chevron rug for two reasons*: it combines the artistic and colorful effect of this gorgeous if not impractical rope rug with the ease and eco-friendliness of this recycled rag rug. It's the best of both worlds, people!
Remember the plastic spoon rose? Turns out that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as spoon-crafting is concerned. Take for example these (dare I say?) gorgeous spoon pendent lights.
Holes in spoons negate their intent, but they also take artist's Daisuke Hirawa creation (pictured above) into

Whenever my husband gets one of those "Scratch and Win!" things, he's all over it with his loose change, and if he doesn't win, he scratches off everything anyway. That's why I can totally see him loving this DIY valentine idea.
Oh, hey! It's a comically small kitchen island floating awkwardly in the middle of the room! If this predicament sounds (or looks) familiar, we've got just the makeover for you.
As you all know, my favorite plants in all the world are succulents. I love 'em in big, statement-piece hanging gardens and I especially love them in tiny, magnetized terrarium form. But these candlesticks-turned-planters might be my favorite DIY succulent containers yet!
There's no cheesiness in this food-inspired Valentine- it is all fruit.
It's a strangely warm and sunny winter day today and I've got the itch to get outside and grill something. A personal-sized mini grill made from items around the house seems like the perfect lunch-making tool to me! Just throw on some fresh veggies and you've got yourself a tasty treat.
There's an old saying in the art world, "If you can't make it good, make it big". While that rings true some of the time, it's definitely possible to make it good AND make it big. Case in point: these giant paper flowers!
The best furniture makeovers are not necessarily the most over the top. A little paint and some new hardware can make Goodwill and Craigslist finds look like they're straight off the showroom floor. Take for example these 12 makeovers, each is as fresh as a spring day.
Lexi's dresser makeover (pictured above) was inspired by Benjamin Moore Paint Strips. However, she made her own custom colors with some white and green paint she had...
Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, and often times we are all so exhausted from the winter holidays that we neglect the holiday of love. This year I decided to decorate a bit for my kids' sake, but I have to admit I've fully enjoyed having some love-filled reminders around the house. We've kept things simple, like the fuzzy ball garland by Anna at Noodle-head, above, and I've rounded up a few more simple and endearing projects for a sweet Valentine's Day.
We're big on affordable, do it yourself wall art here at Curbly (check out our top ten projects from 2011), especially art of the typographic variety. So when we spy a project that covers all those bases (typographic, DIYable, cheap!) we get pretty excited!
Inspired by a planter spotted at West Elm, Lucy used three bowls snagged at the Dollar Store, two glasses and Gorilla Glue to make her fabulous recreation. A few succulents and the look is complete. For the entire how-to, head on over to Craftberry Bush.
Unique piece of DIY art, or something more? Let's see what's behind door #1, shall we?
Valentine's Day is fast approaching and while hiding treats in super cute mailboxes each day is a swell idea, maybe you'd like to surprise your gift recipients with one big bang of a goodie bag! We've rounded up three of our favorite DIY Valentine package ideas that are easy to make and sure to delight!
Is it heart-felt, or a felt heart? Well, all cheesiness aside, it can be both if you are looking for a simple valentine for the bookworm in your life.
