The holes in the shelf provided anchors for my earrings to be placed wherever I wanted. I used the knife rack and containers to house my studs earrings, rings and clasp earrings separately anyway I desired. I was able to insert my own labelling inside the container lid to identify contents. I used the picture ledge to hold my bracelets. On the underneath of the ledge I screwed a Bygel rail with hooks attached. I love this arrangement as its very neat and tidy, everything is accessible and it will be quite hardwearing and adaptable to my needs as they change. ~ Alikazam The Author.

DIY – le griffoir pour chat(s)

Je suis relativement chanceuse, elles ne font pas leurs griffes sur le canapé ou sur les murs ou bien encore sur les vêtements ou je ne sais quoi d’autre ! Elles sont plutôt bien disciplinées, bientôt 3 ans que je fixe sur le côté de la bibliothèque du salon, un griffoir en corde, que je renouvèle régulièrement car elles lui vouent un culte dont vous n’avez pas idée. Le seul petit hic c’est que c’est cher (pour ce que c’est), c’est compliqué d’en trouver des « simples » (à savoir rectangulaires et non en forme de souris, sans moquette et sans jouets qui pendent de tous les côtés) et puis c’est souvent moche du coup. Comme j’avais un bout de planche qui trainait dans un coin, des pots de peinture et que la grosse bobine de ficelle coût 1,50€ dans le bazar du coin, je me suis dit que j’allais leur en faire un joli !

Voilà, rien de bien compliqué mais j’avais envie de partager ça avec vous ! Have a Sweater? Make a Pillow! One of my favorite things about Halloween (besides the candy of course) is the abundance of skull-adorned items that fill up the stores.

Have a Sweater? Make a Pillow!

I have an all-year-round attitude towards skulls, but it's fun to find and make new items "for Halloween" that I end up keeping out the rest of the year. The thing that I love about this project is that, not only does it involve cross stitching (which, as it turns out, is so fun), but it's also sweater upcycling as well since you use a knit-based material as the base of your pillow. This is actually the first time I've done anything cross stitch related, so if you haven't tried it yet either, this is the perfect project to start with.

DIY: Le pot à thé façon tableau noir! Make Your Own Pop Art Pet Portrait. Hi! 10 Ways to Make Cinderblock Furniture (That Doesn't Look Totally Terrible) Cinderblock furniture is something we tend to associate with college apartments, along with inflatable furniture and futons and cheap reproductions of Van Goh's The Starry Night.

But cinderblocks have two chief advantages over other building materials: 1. they're cheap, and 2. they're really cheap. Plus, you don't really need to nail them or drill them or any other such thing, because they're so heavy they'll stay in place all on their own. And the best news of all is that cinderblock furniture doesn't have to look terrible.

Really. Check out these ten examples. P.S.

Nous n’avons pas toutes une machine à coudre et pourtant nous avons toutes des envies de couture, des projets de décoration ou des envie de vêtements fait maison. J’ai la chance d’avoir une bonne vieille machine Singer, en métal, d’une couleur presque douteuse, mais pleine d’histoire.

Evidemment elle fait du bruit, comme toutes les machines et quand j’ai envie de faire un peu de couture le soir, quand mon chéri regarde la TV, j’avoue que j’hésite à coudre… je n’ai pas d’atelier fermé et il est donc impossible de faire marcher ma MAC pendant que la TV est allumée. Aussi je vous ai trouvé un DIY très sympa qui va nous permettre, vous et moi, de réaliser des housses de coussins de toute taille, sans machine à coudre, et bien entendu sans fermeture éclair.
