Summer is coming! Cool down with a yogurt pop -- this healthy frozen snack is a cinch to make. Here's how.
I took a bunch of different printmaking classes in college, but this technique still blows my mind! No fancy presses, machines, or chemicals required -- just regular old gelatin. Amazing, right?
This might be the most amazing DIY rug I've ever seen. Heck, it might be the most amazing rug period!
As a lover of film and TV, this might be my favorite wall art shopping guide so far! It was also really, really, really hard to narrow it down to a mere 20 prints. My suggestion?? Hit up your favorite online marketplace (Etsy, Society6, Cargoh, Supermarket, etc.) and do a search for the shows you love the most. It'll blow your mind. Meanwhile, here are my picks for awesome movie- and TV-inspired prints!
If you've got $15, a steady hand, and a bit of patience, you can turn a boring wall like this...
Wanna play another game of Guess the Gadget?? I'm not gonna lie; some of these are tough. But don't worry, as always, I'll give hints along the way.
Jeannie wouldn't like this.
Last month, we featured ten modern DIY art projects that ranged from bold and graphic to subdued and subtle. We're back at it again with a fresh new roundup of contemporary art inspiration -- and it's all stuff you can make yourself (of course). Enjoy!
When the weather is nice, I'll take any excuse to dine al fresco. Kristen went the extra mile and created a hand-painted dinner party, complete with paint-dipped glasses and ikat plates.
Our mail inevitably ends up in a massive pile on the little desk in our kitchen. It grows and grows and, needless to say, we avoid that area like the plague. I wonder if having an adorable mail basket holder like this one would make the chore of sorting through it more enjoyable? Maybe??
I'm a sucker for creative DIYs that are simple and fall under the "one afternoon" time frame. So, when I spotted this clever cork pencil holder and office organizer, I immediately perked up and thought "I can DO this!".

I just walked around my house and made a quick inventory of how many silhouette images I have as wall art in my home. The count currently stands at 10, but that number increases drastically depending on what holiday decor I have out throughout the year.
You could argue that I like silhouettes. A lot.
Here are 12 silhouette art ideas that might inspire yet another piece to add to my collection.
Even though outdoor/plant/garden projects were so last month*, I had to share this adorable little DIY planter idea. Mostly because it's so simple and awesome, but also because it could make a sweet Mother's Day gift, too!
Andrea's kitchen looks nothing like it did when she and her family first moved into their home. A makeover was in order, but the budget was small. In this case $1,000 small. The fact that she and her husband were able to accomplish the re-do for that price tag certainly drew my attention. They did have some things going for them when they started, however. Like a
Naomi's client had a kitchen spanning two poorly functioning rooms, divided by a load-bearing wall. They invested in a support beam that opened up the space in one impressive way.
