Stretched fabric wall art: An easy way to make beautiful art without breaking the bank!

One of the best things about beautiful artwork is how it can instantly transform the look and feel of a room. Sadly, large scale wall art is often expensive, placing it out of many people's budgets (mine included!).

How to: DIY Family Silhouette Art in Under an Hour

by Lidy Dipert

Family Silhouette Art in Under an Hour

I've been itching to do some DIY art for our home that could involve my kids, but still be stylish and modern. This family silhouette art is definitely a blast from the past! I remember doing this in elementary school and coming home proudly displaying my rather odd-looking silhouette for my parents. This time around, I decided to have it more large scale, keeping the colors simple and the frames clean. It took less than an hour by the time I...

Keys? Check. Wallet? Check. Stay Sane with this DIY Out-the-Door Organizer

Anyone who knows me knows I'm ALL about organization. When you live in small spaces, organization is the key to maximizing space and keeping your home feeling decluttered. One of the most cluttered areas of my home tends to be my entryway, so I decorated a simple box to create this wood box hook display for catching keys, sunglasses and other small items that normally end up cluttering the table!

Capturing Memories: Cork Memory Box Decor

Capturing Memories: Cork Memory Box Decor

Years ago, my boyfriend and I decided to begin collecting corks from special moments in our lives and writing short notes on them to remember the occasions. There came a point when we realized we had to actually DO something with all of the corks we were collecting, so I started moving them to a plain shadow box that has (until now) remained untouched. Finally, it was time to show off these memories we'd made! Our DIY cork memory box contains corks from big milestones, special occasions and holidays over the past few years and sits proudly on a bookshelf to remind us of the things we've celebrated together. Best of all, it's easy to make yourself!

The Pinch of Yum Master Bedroom Tour

by Alicia Lacy

The Pinch of Yum Master Bedroom Tour


When we started Curbly in 2006, saying that your job was 'blogging' was a recipe for confusion. Lots of people didn't even know what a blog was. Fast forward a decade or so, and blogging as a profession is so well-accepted that you probably have a blogger or two living in your own neighborhood. That why we were excited, but not entirely surprised, when we discovered that prolific food bloggers Bjork and Lindsay Ostrom, from PinchofYum, lived about a mile from us.

Bjork and Lindsay are famous for their gorgeously-photographed recipes (their chocolate-chip-cookies are the best), and for helping hundreds of new bloggers get their start through their FoodBloggerPro program (seriously: it basically teaches you to be a blogger). 

Today, we're excited to share a tour of Bjork and Lindsay's bedroom, which they recently finished remodeling. When we met up with these two to talk about their space, they were well on their way to designing it. They'd chosen paint colors, laid flooring, and picked out the major pieces, so styling was the main thing they were looking for help with, and we were more than happy to oblige.

Here's a look at how we styled the space, along with some of Lindsay's take-aways from the whole remodeling process:

by Jesica Versichele

How high should I actually hang my pictures?

Should I hang this picture at eye level? Does that mean my eye level or the eye level of the average person? What if I have very high ceilings? What about those gallery walls everyone is posting Pinterest pictures of? It's a lot to think about, right? Sometimes it seems as if there are as many answers to this question as there are different kinds of houses. This quick cheat sheet is designed to help you make this decision based on your own interior.

Bet You Didn't Know Shelf Liner Could Be This Festive!

DIY window decals - These aren't regular paper snowflakes!

Here in the frozen north (a.k.a. Minnesota), no one really likes snow. As soon as those first puffy flakes come tumbling down from the sky, you can almost hear a unanimous groan echoing across the state. We experienced our first snowfall the weekend after Halloween, and no one was happy about it... except for me. I love the snow! Granted, I'm not from here, so maybe it's just a matter of me not being sick of it yet. The snow is still magical, though. I can't get enough of it, and I am more than happy to hang a few DIY window decals in its honor.
