When I first started exploring the world of DIY, I decorated some spice jars in the hopes of introducing just a small amount of order into my otherwise unlabelled, disorganised and chaotic kitchen.
Fast forward two years later and the spice jars have stood the test of time, but sadly I can't say the same about my good intentions to re-organise my kitchen. All the other items in my pantry remain unlabelled and my spice jars lie strewn all over the kitchen counter along with the other condiments that vye for precious bench space - eek!
Emily Henderson recently took her friend and client Susanne's ho-hum guest room to new heights with a few simple changes that didn't break the bank. New curtains, linen, and bed (courtesy of World Market) add much-needed personality, yet the room still maintains the neutral vibe Susanne
I don't know about your favorite thrift store, buy mine is LOADED with wooden bowls and canisters and stuff. Honestly, I don't spend much time in that aisle. After seeing Amy's wooden bowl makeover I just might be making a beeline for that particular aisle on my next visit. Some inexpensive gold leaf, glue, Martha's patterning tape, and a soft-bristle brush is all you need. And...
Growing season is upon us where I live, and I'm itching to plant some herbs. But where to plant? Outside, deer and rabbits mow down anything within their reach. Inside, there isn't much space. To overcome both obstacles, we've rounded up 10 small space herb garden projects
When Lauren found her dream dresser at Room & Board, it came with a nightmare price tag. At $1,599, it might make a lot of people balk. Not deterred, Lauren turned to IKEA's TARVA dresser to bring her dream dresser
When it comes to plants, there is a common stigma that they are hard to care for and that you need a super green thumb in order to have them in your home or outdoor space. The truth is, there are all kinds of sizes and species to suit your schedule and needs so that caring for them comes as natural as possible. And this vertical planter (made from a SHOE ORGANIZER!) is a genius way to keep your plants all in one place so that you have...
Come on...how cool is this: A pendant light made out of a lighting cord, a big light bulb, glue, craft paint, and wooden curtain rings?? Agata is the genius behind the idea that cost her
This wooden DIY amplifier makes me swoon. The maker, a representative from Arbortech, uses specialized wood sculpting tools, but I'm thinking that a grinder, an orbital
Oh boy, is this a great IKEA hack! These were once just boring old plain glass containers, but have since had a little facelift and now I want a bunch lining my desk! Can you tell what they've been updated with?
The first day of summer might still be a couple months away, but that hasn't stopped us from getting prepared for those relaxing afternoons lounging in the sun or evenings winding down with a tasty cocktail in hand. Afterall, it's never too early to get out and enjoy this incredible weather, so here are some must-have pieces to really brighten up your day...and patio!
1. There's nothing wrong with...
That author's name you see on the book pictured above--JoAnn Moser?--that's me. Yup, I wrote a book. An honest to goodness, available-at-Amazon-and-local-retailers-near-you, book. It all started back in December of 2014 when Mark Johanson from Cool Springs Press contacted me regarding an idea he had about a
Ever see a project using wood slices and wonder how the maker gets them all so evenly sliced? (If you've ever tried to get an even cut on a round tree limb, you know what I'm talking about.) In the case of this project, their uniformity has everything to do
Ever since we moved into our new house, I had been searching for a fun piece of art that could hang in the empty space above the sink. And then my utensil drawer started getting too full... and I had an idea. Why not make a functional piece of artwork that could store utensils right on the wall? Then all of your often-used tools would be handy - no need to search through a drawer to find the peeler anymore. Keep reading to check out the final piece and to find out how to make one of your own.
When Amy spotted West Elm's Plank Coffee Table--pictured above--on their website ($999), she had to have one. But she also realized she could make one using pallet wood for a fraction of the cost. With her detailed
After seeing this simple tutorial, I have a feeling I will make a billion copper mirrors to go in every vanity in my household. And maybe a few gifts for family and friends! The end result is gorgeous and you only need three things to make it!
Our friends over at Dremel Weekends feature this absolutely lovely trio of uplights made of PVC. They look great with white interiors, but I'm wondering what they might've looked like sprayed on the inside, perhaps with something metallic like gold.
Besides the PVC pipe and a roto tool and bits (preferably Dremel, of course), other things we'll need to make them include spotlights, clamps...
Courtney and her husband cleverly turned an IKEA Gulliver Changing Table into a much-needed bookcase. Although they used a very specific changing table, I can imagine something quite similar could be done
