I LOVE finding inspiration in public spaces, including hotel rooms. Yes, there are some hotel rooms out there that are worthy
If you've got a blank wall, some scrap wood, and a love for maps, well, I've got the DIY project for you!
A simple, low-cost DIY lighting project that you can make from the most basic materials, without any special tools, that looks great and is completely customizable?! YES, PLEASE.
I've always wanted a tree swing, but have never lived in a place that had a tree strong enough to support one. If you're lucky enough to have a nice, sturdy tree near you, and are willing to let me stop by for spontaneous swinging sessions*, here's a great tutorial for making a tree swing that'll last!
It's not often that we get to see an entryway makeover from both the outside and the inside. Well today is our lucky day, because this thorough transformation has been documented from all angles... and what a dramatic change it is!
Even though it snowed yesterday where I live (Hello, weather! It's May! Get a grip.), my thoughts are occupied by visions of summer and lounging in the sun with a good book. Of course, to lounge one would need a lounge chair. I'm thinking of giving this rustic-meets-modern version a go!

I have a bit of a crush on geometric shapes, combine that with my love of paint dipping and you've got a perfect combo, want to triple threat it? Add cake!
There are some ugly fireplaces out there. And renovating one can be a daunting task. But it doesn't have to be as scary as it seems... and you don't even have to spend a lot of money! These budget friendly makeovers will knock your socks off, I promise.

Sometimes I wish I had stairs just so I could paint them. Or tile them. Or make them look pretty in some way. There are so many great staircase makeover ideas floating around the Internet... I guess until I get stairs of my own, I'll just keep drooling over those.
Unimpressed with the bedside table offerings from your local furniture stores? Make your own!

So when I spotted this DIY animal mask art, which struck me as weird (in a good way) and immediately made me laugh, I knew I had to share it!

The Ikea Rast, only available in a natural pine finish, lends itself to Ikea hacks... it's like a blank canvas. And we've shown Rast hacks before. But this transformation is so complete, you would never even know the end result was achieved using a $35 chest.
