Makeover: Door Turned Sidetable

created at: 08/20/2012

Gail has a thing about doors. Especially old, junky ones. She uses them to make toddler beds and bookshelves and things. When she saw Jan's castoff door, she was struck by inspiration, which actually came from Brittany over at Pretty Handy Girl. Brittany used a door to make a bedside table, so Gail figured Continue Reading

created at: 08/20/2012

The family that belongs to this dining room didn't used it that often. (Holidays and special dinners, like many people.)

Roundup: Five Fabulous Dorm Room Makeovers

By: Diy maven Aug 01, 2012
created at: 08/01/2012
It occurred to me this morning that we've never had a dorm room makeover roundup here on Curbly. Heck, I'm not sure we've even had ONE before and after of a dorm room. Perhaps it's so as finding good examples is rather difficult. (Students too busy or too broke, I suppose.) Because of this, these makeovers (actually, they're more like moving in with style) span several years. No matter what their age, they're still fabulous! 

One thing a drab dorm room has going for it isContinue Reading

created at: 07/30/2012

Nick Smith and Emma Allard's escape from the humdrum includes traveling the UK in a camper Van. The old yellow VW was dark and funky when the couple first acquired it. Because they're also DIYers, they jumped right and began making the vee-dub into a bright and cheerful place to call their home on wheels. They went with an ocean-front, nauticalContinue Reading
