What's better than one greyhound? Two! Tosh is the second "dog daughter" to join the Mother Daughter Projects team so a new raised feeding stand was needed. Follow along as we share our DIY version.
Here are seven DIY alternatives to the traditional Christmas tree. All can be made with easy to find materials--some with recycled elements, others with standard lumber. Bonus, most are designed for easy and space saving storage when the holidays are over.
The very first piece of vintage furniture that I purchased right out of college was a desk with chair. My first job was in a small north Florida town where I sublet an apartment for two months. My unit was tacked onto the back of a home and featured the smallest bathtub ever. Bonus, it had no shower so I had to connect a handheld sprayer to the tub faucet for a very rough facsimile of an actual shower. Bonus, it also had mice! That gives you a good idea why I was only there two months.
Anyway, the garage apartment was occupied by a lady that moved while I lived in the third apartment. She sold all her furniture and I was given the opportunity to pick from the leftovers. The second apartment tenant made sure he had first dibs on everything. Evidently, he was an antiques collections so he got "all the good" stuff! Not sure what he got, but I was very happy with the desk and a couple of end tables that I purchased.
I used that desk for years until the chair fell apart when I then stored them both in the garage. At one point I did try to refinish it but didn't follow through.
The Builder's Challenge gave me the push I needed to finally repair and refinish the pieces one and for all!
Fall and Halloween decorating is in full swing. We're all ready for a little change of season and a little fall decor both inside and outside of our homes. In partnership with the Home Depot, we created a DIY pumpkin topiary for fall that can be swapped out for a spooky Halloween tree complete with DIY ornaments!
Head to the Home Depot to see the full video on how to build the topiary. In this post, we'll go into more detail on how to deck out your Halloween tree.
Steph received an heirloom pearl necklace from her grandmother and wanted to find a way to display it when not wearing it.
She did a little internet research and found a couple of ideas that she adapted into a DIY design that would work. The surprise material used in this project is a glass vase! She found one the size she needed, took off the feet and inverted to use as the display case--so smart!
Follow along as Steph puts together this simple, but perfect display case.
