Seat, back, wheels. Office chairs can be so ho-hum, which is why many see them as blank canvases just itching for a punch of personality, as evidenced by the plethora of makeovers scattered across the internet. Here are some of the fun and funkiest out there. But beware, gazing upon them might make you realize your office chair is a bit of a snoozer.
First up is Kendra's project who not only
Just because your walls and furniture are Neutral City, USA doesn't mean you can't bring color in! My favorite way to do that is through big, bright, high-impact art. Here are a few spaces that do that well--and with some serious flair.
I thought these DIY paper pencils would fit in quite nicely with the "art" theme we're rocking this month. The possibilities are as endless and pretty and artsy as you want them to be!
Part installation piece, part upcycling genius, this DIY water bottle chandelier is a cinch to make!
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!
I once had a friend who asked if baby toys came in beige because they were so unsightly. You could say the same about dog crates. So Erin Loechner came up with a modern and practical solution.
Beckie's grandma and grandpa gave her an old rickety table that was set for the trash heap. Beckie stepped in and saved the table. The only problem was she didn't need a table. Shelves, however, she could use. Her friend Mike used a jigsaw to saw the the table in half. A shot of primer and spray paint later, and this is what it looks like now:
This might be one of the coolest lighting projects I've seen in a while! It's big, bold, modern, and kinda rustic all at once... win-win-win-win in my book!
As an avid note-taker and a prolific list-maker, I feel like I'm constantly on the hunt for scraps of paper to jot things down on. So when I spied these DIY notebooks in NEON PINK and GOLD (!!!), I got a little excited at the possibilities!
Elisabeth's dining room works triple duty as a sewing room for herself and a place for art projects with her boys. When she needed a large wall storage solution, she considered many store-bought choices before her hubs went the DIY route.

If you're short on outdoor space, you can still enjoy some greenery indoors with a terrarium! Read on to learn how to make your own tiny garden.
Hello, slightly-abstracted chevron pattern! You're my new favorite thing. Also, that metallic gold flair you've got going on really suits you. I have a feeling we're going to be BEST. FRIENDS.
Esther's pops cut down a piece of plywood into the necessary dimensions to make this spot-on recreation of Anthro's wooden holder for their vintage box-set books. The store-bought versions--complete with vintage books--cost between $1,400 to $2,000. The price, I'm guessing, is reflected
