Natalie's no-two-alike birdbaths were made out of old lamps. A PERFECT project for thrift store finds, we'll also need a bowl, a drill and some
The 'before' looks like so many backyards we've all seen (including my own): a small rectangle of grass, void of personality but full of potential! The potential here is a yard worth celebrating -- check out the 'after' below!
Our whole backyard is pretty much a side yard so when I see transformations like this it gives me hope!
Fern's little mint tin garden made me squeal. She used a tin from Trader Joe's but as we're an Altoid household, that'd be the direction I'd go. Just look how cute her little garden turned out:
This bathroom makeover is a perfect example of how to use neon in your decor: the style factor is out-of-this-world without being completely over-the-top!
Another genius idea that will make you smack your forehead while simultaneously exclaiming, "Why didn't I think of that!" The technique of turning an old pair of jeans into a gardening apron could not be easier. It's just a matter of knowing
This little vintage ottoman had great bones and a charming profile, but its beige-y blahness just wasn't cutting it. That's nothing a fab shower curtain couldn't fix, though! Yes, I said "shower curtain". Read on!
The 'to use or not to use indoors' pallet discussion may continue to rage on, but that doesn't me we're still not keeping our eyes peeled for cool DIY projects using them. In this case, the pallet seen above was sanded and
After last week's roundup of craft room storage and organization ideas, I had to share this brilliant craft room makeover: it's full of (even more) clever takeaways and inspiration!
Not every before needs to be goofy. Some are just empty rooms. Case in point: This light-filled, open-concept space was in dire need of some furnishings. Although it's now filled, it has kept its airy feel
Capree's Laundry Room Makeover Roundup last week had me itching to see more! (Maybe it's because my laundry room is a bit dungeon-y.) Well, Bryn's was lacking natural light, not to mention, the function she really needed. See how she gave her wash-and-wear room some "dry clean only" sophistication.
Bryn added some task lighting beneath her upper cabinets, and installed a wooden countertop for a work surface....
It's an old dumpy dresser, the kind we've seen a million times on Curbly. But this time, this time it's getting a whole different kind of makeover!
Katelyn's future office space was brilliance just waiting to happen. In the right hands, of course. As evidenced from the 'after' that's exactly where it found itself. The sea-spray blue and
Oooooh my goodness, the time has come: my big kitchen makeover reveal is finally here! Take a good, long look at the "before"... then click on through for all the "after" photos your heart can handle! Warning: angelic choirs may be present; hearing protection suggested.
With so many windows, Vel's bedroom looked remarkably dark. The orange wall probably didn't help. So, Vel set to work and painted away the gloom. Here's what it looked like just after
When we bought our house in 2007 (pre-bubble burst... YAY), one of the first things on my to-do list was to give our very blah, very builder-grade kitchen a makeover. Well, this last fall, after tackling every other room in the house instead, we decided it was finally time to give this sage green behemoth its due. But first: the before photos!
Courtney had an awkward corner on her back deck (which happens to be in Australia). Instead of just sticking a table and a plant there and calling it a day, Courtney and her husband Tony pulled out the power tools and came up with a great solution for the space.
This nondescript living room could be in any home, anywhere; we've all seen something similar, right? It's not completely terrible, but it could be so much better. All it needs is a dash of style, maybe a light dusting of flair, and a big ol' punch of personality -- then it's goodbye Beige Town, hello Awesomeville. Let's see if this space can make the move!
Rachel found this teak campaign trunk table and transformed it from bad nail salon decor to a really sophisticated piece.
