The bed in our guest room is very tall. And if you've ever tried to find a tall end table, you know that they aren't easy to come by. So I decided to make one... and my version of the C table was born. This is not one of those time intensive woodworking projects - in fact, it didn't even involve power tools. Click through to check out this incredibly easy little side table project.

Upgrade your Space with a Simple Beaded Fan Pull

Living in a rental means I'm stuck with a few things I don't like, including vertical blinds, ugly ceiling fans and popcorn ceiling. While some things are more difficult to swap out (whether you're renting or just on a budget), it doesn't have to completely limit you. Upgrade a fan or ceiling lamp with a simple beaded fan pull to replace an ugly, boring chain in about 10 minutes.

DIY This: Planetary Mobile for a Minimal Nursery

by M.E. Gray

Minimal Nursery decor: Make this planetary mobile

As nursery trends change, the traditional pinks and blues are slowly being pushed out in favor of current, updated looks. Parents are experimenting more and more with bolder hues, playful patterns, or simply less of it all. It's easy to see why the minimal nursery look is gaining in popularity. There are fewer elements to worry about, there aren't any color-related gender-indicators (which makes styling ahead of time a breeze), and the color palette is almost non-existent. If you're looking to decorate a minimal nursery or want to give a gift to a no-fuss parent-to-be, you can craft this sweet planetary mobile quickly and easily.

5 Minute DIY: Magnetic Scroll Frame (No Woodworking Required!)

by M.E. Gray

DIY Hanging Poster Frame

Get ready, gang, because this is a fast one! I love having art all throughout my house, but I don't love buying frames. They're so expensive. I don't own any rare art, so it seems silly to buy frames that cost more than the original artwork itself. I like the trending, vintage-y look of a scroll frame, but enjoy the freedom of being able to switch out art pieces, like with a traditional frame. So why not both? With a bit of magnetic tape and some baseboard trim, this DIY hanging poster frame is not only cheap, but also super fast to make, and ridiculously simple.

You wouldn't believe the difference it makes! In this case, you can use an IKEA tabletop of any size to make a 10-minute side table that looks beautiful, and no one would even know it's IKEA.

How-To: A Reclaimed Wood Accent Wall

by Faith Provencher

Before and After: A Reclaimed Wood Accent Wall

The front wall of our living room needed something. It was just begging for an accent wall, but we weren't sure what sort of material. Until we found Timberchic, a company that creates reclaimed wood specifically to be placed on the wall. It would lend a bit of a rustic feel to a space desperately searching for an identity, and some much-needed textural interest. Click through to find out how our wood accent wall turned out - and to learn how to do it yourself.
