This is, hands down, one of the coolest DIY desk ideas I've seen in a while. Sure, industrial pipes, trestle legs, and the occasional hairpin-leg-plus-plywood desk are all great projects. But what if you could up the ante with a custom epoxy tabletop? Here's how to do it -- the easy way!
Last week, I shared the results of our fun and quirky master bedroom makeover. (Take a peek here if you missed it!) In it, we included a pair of IKEA nightstands that were treated to a simple yet colorful makeover. Check it out below!
I can't get enough of the tropical foliage trend lately. Here in sunny California, Spring has definitely arrived and Summer is just around the corner. I'm ready to host some backyard BBQs and warm weather brunches. I decided a new tablecloth was a must for this season. This DIY Tropical Leaf Tablecloth is so easy to make and the results are bold and beautiful.
I recently made an end table for my house and was blown away by how easy it was. So much so in fact that now I want to make all the end tables, including this copper and marble one by A Joyful Riot! All you really need is a trip to the hardware store and an extra hour or two this weekend and you can have a brand new piece of furniture (and still have time to go to a movie). Really, it doesn't get any better than that!
Honestly, if I'd have seen this coffee table at my local Goodwill, I would have passed on the shape alone. (My rule is if it isn't rectangular or round, forget it.) But it was exactly the octagonal shape that worked--and worked well--for Sheena's sectional sofa arrangement. So she plunked down
There are plenty of not-so-lovely furniture items floating around the garage sale circuit. These affordable pieces can easily be transformed, though, with a bit of elbow grease and, of course, some colorful paint!
Hairpin legs have really crept up the trend ladder these last two years. I love them myself. They're an excellent way to dip your toes into mid-century modern design without giving in fully to the look. This coffee table is a great DIY project for someone wanting to give hairpin legs a try!
Okay. After seeing this tutorial, I'm heading to my local lumber yard this weekend. I'm going to need about 6 of these logs-turned-side-tables if it's this easy to make them!
Ikea has nothing on this DIY wire basket table by Oleander and Palm. Not only does it look great, but it's completely affordable to make. Seriously, only about $30! Plus, you can have the entire project done in less time than it would take you to figure out those pesky assembly instructions that most pieces of store bought furniture come with. That to me sounds like a no-brainer to me my friends, especially if you're on the hunt for a new side table!
I've seen a whole lot of side table projects, but this? Well, it takes the cake, literally. Believe it or not, a metal cake pan is the key ingredient in this DIY mid-century side table. Curious to see how it turned out?
If there's one room in my home that I want to constantly update, it's my office. The more inspiring the space is, the more work I feel like I can get done. Well, at least that's what I tell myself when I set out on another project. Whether you're looking to make your own desk, or just want to spruce up the one you have, these 10 projects are worth checking out!
A quick internet search shows that DIY headboards tend to fall into two categories: tufted or reclaimed wood (i.e. pallets). We say it's time to move beyond the obvious and try out some of these creative and totally unique headboard ideas instead!
Whenever I get a new desk, I inevitably end up with these dilemmas: 1. There isn't enough space up top to display everything. 2. I don't want to hide my stuff in the drawers. 3. The surface CANNOT stay organized.
This DIY desk might be the solution to my problems!
Is the idea of a furniture makeover daunting to you? Do you live to DIY? Or would you rather just buy? Sometimes when I see a piece of furniture on a curb or at a thrift store, it looks like it's in too bad of shape to make it over, but this before and after is proof that a little elbow grease works! I especially love the deco design up top!
See how this $19.50 dining set, from Goodwill, was transformed into a sleek mid century gem. Hint: Bye bye bulky tabletop.
