Blog Archive & Grandma's Stain Spray

Grandma’s stain spray is so simple to make. And saved my favorite shirt. Okay. One of my favorite shirts.
We all know with craft blogs that original ideas are often hard to come by, we find ideas we love and make them our own but we didn't come up with the idea ourselves. I feel like I've finally done something original here and I'm excited about it. I'll show you the finished product and then explain. Behold my Make-up Magnet Board.

Inspired Entertaining: DIY Chalkboard Wine Glasses - StumbleUpon

Last month I got an email from one of those "deal of the day" websites featuring a very cute set of wine glasses with chalkboard stems from a company called Chalkboard China. I've seen chalkboard glasses before, and always thought them to be a fun and chic way for guests to keep track of their glass throughout the night so you don't end up with mixed-up glasses or dozens of half-full glasses left around the house. But all the ones I've seen in stores feature a strip of chalkboard paint across the bowl of the glass, which I've always felt looks awkward and takes away from the beauty of the wine or beverage in the glass. What I like about this version is that the writing part is at the bottom on the stem and foot of the glass, so it doesn't compete with the beverage.

DIY best of: office | Design*Sponge

The office is one my favorite “rooms” in the house because so often it’s not even a room— it’s a converted closet, a dining table working double duty, or a well-organized nook. I love seeing how people customize their homes to make room for a workspace that suits their needs, and I can say from personal experience that nothing beats working in an organized setting, even if it’s not officially an office. Here are 13 of our our favorite office-related DIY projects to help you organize and decorate your own workspace. No office is complete without a bit of personalization, and these DIY desks, storage pieces, and decorative office accessories are a great place to start. Enjoy, and happy working!

Repurposed Etched Glass Spice Jars... - StumbleUpon

Repurposed Etched Glass Spice Jars... - StumbleUpon As an avid recycler, I often find myself admiring the numerous boxes of glass bottles in our garage, awaiting their fate. When I noticed more than a dozen empty bottles from one particular product, I knew I had a problem there must be something else I could do other than toss them into a recycling bin once a week. In order to justify my purchase of a caffeine-laden treat, I decided to repurpose and upcycle the glass containers from my favorite splurge. Enter Starbucks Frappuccino. (I know, I know, but I'm trying...)
Dry-Erase Glass Calendar I am needing some MAJOR organization in my life right now. That is why I recently made a Dry-Erase Glass Calendar. Steph from Somewhat Simple, who is my good friend, made this and I loved it {find her tutorial here}. I knew I wanted to make one for my family in the future but was waiting for the perfect opportunity… fast forward a bit, and I recently got this adorable 20×30 frame from Cut It Out {super cute and inexpensive frames - check ‘em out!}.

How to make a book headboard! This works best in layers going from the outside in. I decided to separate my covers by color and work with them that way. I chose to do purples and blues for the outside layer. How to make a book headboard!

The Handy Hausfrau: Portable Spice Kit for Camping or Travel

Today's DIY project at The Handy Hausfrau is a portable spice "rack." We have a second home (a ski condo in the mountains) and I am constantly filling up Ziplock bags with various spices for cooking. Why don't I just leave the spices up there? you ask. We rent the condo out and on more than one occasion, I've searched for my crushed red pepper, only to find that a renter used the last of it on his pepperoni pizza slice.

Paper Covered Switch Plate & The Hybrid Chick - StumbleUpon

I’ve been working on revamping my powder room. New paint, some new art on the walls, it was all coming together. When Wendy released her Fleury kit this past month, I was seriously swooning! The colors were perfect for this room and I had to figure out a fun way to incorporate my favorite paper from that awesome kit. And then a light came on (pun somewhat intended!)
