My new favorite verb: pom-pomize. (As in to put pom-poms on stuff.) Lara does it to plain, cloth napkins, and she does it the no-sew way. Now, being a nervous-Nelly, I'd probably opt to

That's because not only is the vantage point of the photographs are different, J A S

Using flooring to resurface kitchen cabinets might sound weird. Using vinyl flooring to resurface kitchen cabinets might sound downright crazy. In the right hands, however, it's kinda genius. The owner of the kitchen pictured above blew her budget on appliances in her cozy kitchen, which meant all new cabinets were out of the question. With less than $300
Stephanie flips houses. She also remodels them. Take, for example, the kitchen pictured above. It could be described as a dark, cramped cubby-hole before. After "numerous trips to IKEA to get it right," it's now Stephanie's favorite kitchen makeover she's ever
I'm not sure if this kitchen makeover is stunningly surprising or surprisingly stunning. It might be stunning for obvious reasons, but it's surprising for what DIDN'T change. Namely the flooring, the appliances AND the cabinets. Yes, the
After seeing Deadpool this weekend, I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to see unicorns the same way again. Let's just say they're Mr. Pool's favorite plushy. Plus, they blow rainbows out of their butts. From that to this: Unicorn
What I love about Megan's DIY kitchen makeover is it's totally unexpected. Let's face it, there's a lot of kitchen makeovers out there that, although they look fabulous after, they all kinda look alike. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing; they're popular for a reason. But as someone who searches for kitchen makeovers on the intertubes on a regular basis, something different is good. Now back to
Honestly, would you take a second look at these two dining side chairs if you came across them on CL or at the GW? If you think they looked rough on the outside, they looked even WORSE on the inside. Check
The kitchen in Allie's 1978 home looks nothing like this anymore thanks in large part to some strategic demolition and IKEA. The demo bit came when she and her husband knock down the wall between their kitchen and dining room to create one open space. The wood flooring was removed and replaced with something that unified the expansion. When it came time to furnish the area, IKEA cabinets...
Not your typical outdoor cooker, this biomass stove, which the maker calls a "rocket stove," could be a perfect addition to a small backyard. It has a lot going for it including the fact that it smokes very little, it's virtually indestructible, it only needs a tiny bit of fuel (aka: biomass,
If the name of this dish hasn't caught your eye (and your tastebuds), then there may not be hope for you! We kid. This recipe might just be the perfect breakfast to make when family comes to town for the holidays!
Christmas decorations do sneak into my kitchen this time of year, but not like these kitchens. I am completely inspired by them. Fun, festive and completely inviting. I can imagine drinking a hot cup of cocoa in any of them. How about you?
Admittedly, white kitchens have an advantage at
When Jen needed a cost-effective kitchen island for her rental, she turned to pallets. She'd had success before using them to re-do a bookcase, so this was familiar territory for her. First in the island's creation was building a frame--the wood for which, Jen notes, was the only lumber that was actually purchased for the project.
The lovely thing about IKEA's Tarva dressers--besides their low sticker price--is their blank-canvas quality. They can easily be painted and stained to make them one of a kind creations. Katie, from Addicted 2 DIY can attest to this, as she not only (eventually) painted and stained her Tarva 3-drawer dresser, she took its makeover to the extreme by breaking out the power tools and turning it into a bar cabinet, complete
Remember these things?? About ten years ago, everybody had one. Then televisions grew skinny and started popping up on walls. Nobody needed big old cabinets--excuse me, entertainment centers--anymore and they started appearing in thrift stores and on Craigslist in every city in the country. But Jann kept hers, figuring
Hate oak cabinetry? Most people these days seem to, or feel that they are expected to hate it. However, the people who own the kitchen pictured above didn't and weren't afraid to admit their preference. They liked oak's "refined rustic/craftsman style." So, when it came time to
