Make It! DIY Modern Pet Bed

By: Jeran Aug 26, 2015

Everyone in your family deserves a stylish little place of their own.  We love our cat, Pumpkin, but he isn't allowed on the sofa.  I'm just not a fan of pet hair on everything.  I wanted to give him his own special spot, without sacrificing style in our home.  This easy-to-make pet bed cost only $10 in materials.  Instead of buying expensive designer fabric, I created my own look with modern black and white splatter effect.  I'll happily let it live in our living room and with its removable cover, I can easily wash it often to keep the air issues at bay.

How to: Simple and Modern DIY Magnetic Poster Frame

By: Hellolidy Jul 23, 2015
DIY Magnetic Poster Frame

I inherited a love for art from my grandmother. Her home was seriously a museum that I loved to peruse and take in. It was full of beautiful decor and art; some she brought into Canada with her after she immigrated from Holland. Some, she picked up along the way. I always thought she spent a fortune on most of her collections. But it turns out, they were affordable prints that simply spoke to her, which she collected over time. And that is exactly how I seem to collect the many pieces of art in our home. The problem is, I'm running out of frames to hang them in, so I decided to create a minimal and modern magnetic poster frame!
