Spring cleaning feels amazing when it is complete, but the initial getting started isn’t always as exciting. As a way to minimize how much I have to take on when this momentous event arrives each March and April, I am a big believer in cleaning my house every week without fail. However, as we know, there are a handful of things that must be cleaned, but thankfully only a few times a year. Martha Stewart breaks it all down in great detail in her Housekeeping Handbook , but you can also print off the specific list you want here on her blog. With that said, while I’m meticulous, I also don’t have a house cleaner, so below is the list that works for me.
I've made a couple of diamond-tufted headboards now ( Joanna's was only my second though) and I feel like I have a pretty good sense of the easiest DIY approach now. For another tufted headboard tutorial I did, check out this post . I would say any upholstery job involving tufting is sort of an advanced DIY, but is this project definitely doable (maybe even fun?). Gone are the days when I spend hours mapping out and drilling holes in plywood! I've been using pegboard and it is PERFECT for these headboard projects. Cheap, lightweight and sturdy enough.
Hey there! First of all, have you seen the 400 awesome before and after projects linked up this month? Fantastic! (You can see them here .) But come back soon cause I want to show you a fun little project. ;) I was lucky enough to get the chance to attend an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ™ Workshop a few weeks ago at a fun shop called ReStyled here in central Indiana.
