I'm all about inexpensive updates around the house. They are far more justifiable and brag-worthy, in my opinion! Take this faux transom as an example- more light, more architectural detail, and more brownie points. See how easily it was done!
When you thought you have seen them all, another pendant light takes the spotlight. This one, made of playing cards, really ups the ante when it comes to DIY lighting.
All this talk of kitchens and cooking spaces and whatnot has me looking around at all the ways to spruce up my dining room. I got a little sidetracked when I saw this alternate use for a cheap plastic placemat. Forget the kitchen, we're headed to the bedroom.
I'm a mother. And we've been through the baby food stage twice, so far. If I had saved all the baby food jars from our kiddos, we could have an entire room dedicated to Baby Food Jar Spice Racks. Thankfully, I'm not that crazy, but I did find a few interesting ways to use the finished jar of peas in a new way. Take, for instance, the colorful and magnetic jars above, from Dav.i.son. Which one of these ideas is your favorite?
Breathe new life into thrift store or garage sale finds all while making little ones happy with this easy DIY play kitchen idea!
I don't know about you, but I grew up with a few of these (except the sewing version) floating around the house, due to my mom being a professional seamstress. Now that she's upgraded to fancy metal ones, I almost wish we would have kept some of her old wood yard sticks so I could use them for a project... in the kitchen?
We are all doing our best to avoid the plastic bags at grocery stores, right? Instead of buying a reuseable bag at the check-out line, how about thumbing through the closet to bring new purpose to an old wardrobe staple?
I spend half of dinner prep trying to yank my utensil drawer open. Our shallow drawers don't lend well to my soup ladles. This is why I loved this simple solution to organizing kitchen utensils.
When the ottoman of her dreams was snatched away from beneath her nose, one DIY-er put her abilities to work to make one bland coffee table (above) the reincarnation of The One That Got Away.
If I were to tell you that this builder-basic chandelier was really a diamond in the rough and you'd want it in every room of your house, would you believe me? What if I told you the key to success was a few metal baskets? See for yourself.
So... let's say you just finished up an epic weekend of tree pruning and yard clearing, or just happen to have a pile of sticks and logs hanging around. If you're a resourceful Curblier, you know there's something to be done with all that yard waste besides tossing it or turning it into a giant bonfire. But what? We have the answer below!
Okay you guys. If there was ever a "Why didn't I think of that?!" project, this is it! I mean, we're talking beyond brilliant, beyond clever, and beyond EASY. This DIY idea is just plain smart.
Ok, so my title is ridiculously cheesy. But really, taking crates and mounting them on the outside of your house? Definitely more exciting.
Last week, we shared a budget-friendly wall art idea that used doilies and cupcake liners. This week, we're back in log land (What can we say? We love logs!) with this super simple, super affordable art project!
When I first spotted this image on Flickr, I fell in love with the idea immediately. What a beautiful installation this would make in a guest room, living room, or even the master bedroom! It's soft and whimsical, crafty and nostalgic all at the same time. Can you guess what it's made of?
