DIY cobija de triangulos. Mueble. Have you entered the August Wrinkle Giveaway yet? It has been awhile since my last Manage it Monday! Since we moved to a new loft we decided it was also time to change the way we organized our clothes. Our new bedroom is pretty small so we knew we needed something that could hold a lot of clothes, but didn’t take up a lot of space. Here is what we came up with! We purchased an industrial shelving unit from Home Depot and then found the wood crates on craigslist for five dollars a piece!

I love the look of the wood crates on the industrial shelves. I worried that I wouldn’t like the open crates, but it has actually been really convenient!

Venetian Paper Palace. Jag har helt snöat in på att göra papperslyktor. Denna gång blev det en lite lägre variant som jag ville skulle se lite mer som ett slott eller palats och därför gjorde jag lite olika höjd på taken. En klocka fick också vara med på en av gavlarna. Pappret är vitt men av någon anledning ser det rosa ut på bilderna. I am completely absorbed with paper lanterns. This one is not as high as the Gothic Lantern and I wanted it to look more like a small castle or a palace. The Venetian Paper Lantern and other lanterns are now available.

Cojines con figuras tejidas. This last month I listed one of the pillows I make and offer throughout the year as a Mother's Day pillow. That's right, I took an existing item and marketed it for a specific occation. Now, keep in mind this item was a perfect item to market as such. I didn't take a pillow with a christmas tree and market it as a mother's day gift - that would be ridiculous and annoying. In fact when I made the item I immediately thought that it would be a really fantastic mother's day gift. But for the first time in my 10 months on Etsy, I labeled my listing with a title with direct focus on the upcoming holiday, "Mother's Day Pillow. " We all know holidays are ripe for buying and selling; our holidays are pretty centered around gift giving and now a'days people are often looking for more unique and handmade items; this often leads them to online marketplaces like Etsy. Again, you will want to make sure that your item fills a certain criteria for being "labeled" as an "October fest" item for example.

I really appreciate that my readers are so supportive - your comments and emails really keep me going. To help convince you to vote Dans le Townhouse, I'm showing off my latest DIY project. I am constantly ogling dramatic black and white paintings but a stark, graphic painting just didn't seem to fit anywhere in the townhouse . . . until we started working on the basement.

That's when I realized that I have the perfect spot: the stairwell! I 100% copied a painting I spotted on Pinterest and re-pinned. Here's the how-to. Ignore the bad lighting (I was painting in the evening, in our super dreary basement) and the mess (someone broke in and started painting random parts of the wall and made a mess; I blame teenagers). I started with a blank canvas. 1. 2, 3 & 4. I flipped the canvas over again so I could paint the bottom. Tiny Plant Pots. I’m really a sucker for anything miniature.

I don’t hunt and the thought of throwing a live lobster into a pot of boiling water make me nauseous (but I do like to eat them very much). So when I developed my obsession with antlers, it was pretty much impossible for me to get them unless I pay a stupid amount of money... So I DIY’ed a pair. All you need is some tinfoils and air dry clay! These make great table decorations, and by the way, no deers were harmed in this process :)

From Auto Glass a mesita. I never would have thought of today’s hack-a-week project without my husband, Tim. He currently works in the auto glass industry, and brought home this lovely piece of dark glass. It was his idea to turn it into a tray! Handles were posing somewhat of a problem, though, and so I suggested feet instead. And voilà, here is today’s project! Now, you might be thinking, “Great, I don’t work at an auto glass place. How on earth am I supposed to get my hands on something like that?” And if they do, well, you know what you can make with it: a diy tray! You will need… - A piece of auto glass. - 4 Copper “feet” . - A glue gun and glue. - A hot pad. Step 1: Clean the glass. Step 2: Fill the copper feet mostly full with hot glue. Step 3: Measure and mark where you want the feet to sit.

Step 4: Top off the glue for the feet, and place on glass at the markers. Step 5: You’re done! I really like how it turned out – thanks for the idea, Tim! I have a couple other tray ideas I may post in the future.
