Sitting on my dining room table, I currently have half a dozen projects in various states of doneness. Some involve vivisected computer parts, others will eventually be wearable and a few are just cool things I’ve ran across on the internet. I like doing things myself — I think the DIY bug is one of the best communicable diseases in the lifehack community. These eighty sites are the places I turn to when I’m trying to figure out how to accomplish any particular goal. Any time I’m facing a new project, I start searching for how-tos that will help me figure out how other people did similar things and how likely I am to finish the project with all ten fingers still intact. I’ve broken them up into a few different categories, just to help you narrow down what you might be looking for.
A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price. I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life.
Before: Boring & Basic Unattractive TV cabinets are thrift shop regulars. Take a boring cabinet and turn it into a show stopper by transforming it into a bedside table. After: Cute & Functional Start by removing the wheels and installing new wooden furniture feet. Then prime and paint the cart.
Bright & Cheery Kitchens awash in white look neat and tidy, but color is the key to keeping the space fresh and fun. If you opt to paint your kitchen cabinets white, choose one or two favorite hues to use as accents. Touches of bright red and sky blue set off pristine white cabinets in this kitchen.
I am going to start a new feature on the website- Wall Art Wednesdays. I have noticed during proofing sessions that people are often overwhelmed by the number of beautiful images of their family and don't quite know what to do with them all. I then see them struggle to narrow it down to just one "large" print and then leave several images they love behind just because they weren't sure what to do with them. The other tactic I regularly see is they order several 5x7's and 4x6's but still don't get everything they want.
