I really love simple art and I have been looking for something I could DIY for my guest bedroom. I am drawn to the movement of ink crosshatch. Artists do some seriously cool things with crosshatch, but my experience with it is what I doodled on my paper in college when I should have been taking notes. I decided to make a simple piece of art drawing lots of lines. Here is how I did it.
Joni's master bedroom redo is a breath of fresh air. It also provides an excellent lesson about white paint. White walls can make a room POP. In this case, it provides a blank canvas that now showcases
Alexis's DIY embroidered canvas art is about the sweetest art DIY art project I've seen in ages. Not only is it a snap to make, it's fool-proof. To replicate her creation, all we need is some stretched canvas, embroidery floss or craft thread, a needle, scissors, ruler and a pencil and eraser. To see how Alexis put it all together, please visit Persia Lou....
First, a bit of a digression just for shiggles... A few weeks ago I was at my local Goodwill and I spotted a crystal ring holder. Now, I'm not one for crystal, but there was something about this particular piece that caught my eye, even though it was in need of a good wash. I picked it up, checked the bottom, and, yowza, it sported a Waterford stamp. A quick
Erin used humble brass macrame rings to make this striking wall art. Although she used 12 - 8" rings for a rectangular effect, it could be adapted to different configurations to fit just about any
If you are like me, you "pin" tons of bedroom pictures simply because the styled bed makes you want to dive in and take a nap...yet your own bed never seems to look that way. It's time to change that. Your bed deserves to be a restful refuge. Here are a few different ways you can make your bed so its stylish, relaxing, and functional.
This bedroom makeover is like the Cinderella of bedroom makeovers. You can tell by the "before" that it has all the makings of something beautiful but just needed a fairy godmother to put it over the top. The bedroom belongs to Jen Bishop from Interiors Addict, and when West Elm found out it was up for renovation, they decided to pick up the wand. And bippity-poppity-boo this is what the bedroom looks...
Televisions aren't a necessity, but most bedrooms and living rooms have them. You can equip your living space with one, but still hide it with a clever and cool option like one of these below!
Sometimes woodworking seems intimidating, even for the best DIYer. But that doesn't have to be the case - there are plenty of easy projects out there that include great instructions. Here are ten of our favorite DIY accent tables made with wood.
Emily Henderson recently took her friend and client Susanne's ho-hum guest room to new heights with a few simple changes that didn't break the bank. New curtains, linen, and bed (courtesy of World Market) add much-needed personality, yet the room still maintains the neutral vibe Susanne
I don't know about your favorite thrift store, buy mine is LOADED with wooden bowls and canisters and stuff. Honestly, I don't spend much time in that aisle. After seeing Amy's wooden bowl makeover I just might be making a beeline for that particular aisle on my next visit. Some inexpensive gold leaf, glue, Martha's patterning tape, and a soft-bristle brush is all you need. And...
When Lauren found her dream dresser at Room & Board, it came with a nightmare price tag. At $1,599, it might make a lot of people balk. Not deterred, Lauren turned to IKEA's TARVA dresser to bring her dream dresser
Come on...how cool is this: A pendant light made out of a lighting cord, a big light bulb, glue, craft paint, and wooden curtain rings?? Agata is the genius behind the idea that cost her
When we bought our house the above room was the previous owners little girl's room... in the 1970s. Everything had to go in this room – especially the air conditioning duct running up the corner wall. This bedroom, for now, is our guest bedroom, and I think you'll be amazed at how it turned out.
Ever see a project using wood slices and wonder how the maker gets them all so evenly sliced? (If you've ever tried to get an even cut on a round tree limb, you know what I'm talking about.) In the case of this project, their uniformity has everything to do
Our friends over at Dremel Weekends feature this absolutely lovely trio of uplights made of PVC. They look great with white interiors, but I'm wondering what they might've looked like sprayed on the inside, perhaps with something metallic like gold.
Besides the PVC pipe and a roto tool and bits (preferably Dremel, of course), other things we'll need to make them include spotlights, clamps...
Courtney and her husband cleverly turned an IKEA Gulliver Changing Table into a much-needed bookcase. Although they used a very specific changing table, I can imagine something quite similar could be done
It always surprises me when I see a throw pillow that costs more than $100, and it happens surprisingly often. But there are plenty of wonderful, more affordable options out there. Here are twenty colorful pillows that are sure to freshen up your home for spring without breaking the bank.
It's no secret that I love my bedroom. We went to great lengths to make it a special place, with vaulted ceilings, a statement-making headboard, and an eye-catching chandelier. Investing in big things certainly pays off, but to create a cohesive room, you need all the elements to go together, right down to the bedside tables. Your bedside space can make all the difference in a room. It's a practical, necessary piece of furniture, that can be anything but ordinary. From vintage chairs to a stack of books, you can form and style them any way you please. And, that's just the beginning. It's how you dress up your nightstand that makes it really interesting.
Today, we partnered with Sauder to talk about how to style a bedside table. Whether you're using an old stool or a tree stump, there are a few things to consider to make sure your nightstand is working the way you want it to.
