Do (as in spraypaint) a deer. We are not talking about pulling any kinda Madonna horseplay….get your mind outta the gutter. I wanna take this moment to relieve the awkward silence to talk about spraypainting. Did you know there is a proper way to spraypaint?
Hello there, so sorry I've been absent. I took a few days off and decided to step away from the computer for awhile, we all need those weekends now and again right? Lots of projects that I have been starting and finishing up. It seems I don't have enough time to do everything that's been on my to-do list but one project that moved to the top was a small tray for my nightstand.
Try as I might to achieve minimalism, I just can’t seem to stop the clutter in my life. After a huge clean, the house experiences a few days of perfect organization and cleanliness before the chaos creeps back in, usually through a series of seemingly innocent decisions — a piece of mail I set aside instead of filing away; an irresistible thrift-shop find that gets purchased without a plan for where it should go; a sale on craft supplies. You know how it is. Okay, maybe they’re not so innocent.
I was at Target a while back and picked up one of the buckets from the $1.00 Spot...Don't ya just love the dollar spot... I purchased it with the intention of organizing some of his arts and crafts supplies. It then occurred to me one day while he was eating the "Golden Arches" that he was getting ready to spill everything because he could not hold it all and his drink.
We could gush for hours about how much we adore today’s PINK guest, Delia ! She is a seriously rockin’ partner to host a series with, and we are so honored to call her a good friend as well. We LOVE her fabulous projects (like the Lil’ Mister Bow Tie - Burke wore one on Easter and the other night a made a couple more for his birthday party).
When I saw this on Pottery Barn's website I knew that it would be perfect for my sister. It's totally her style. It's not for sale through the website anymore, but I can only imagine the price tag on something like this! Photos from Pottery Barn here . So, I decided that I should just make my own!
home the Baja cycle is a pedal car styled after the off-road competition vehicles that are popular in the southern California's Baja peninsula. that's a lot of "how to's ", for 18 bucks! what tools will I need to pull this off?
This project made by Karen, the bride from this gorgeous wedding , has to be one of my favorite DIY projects for any wedding. I had this tutorial bookmarked from Design Sponge , but I love how Karen put her twist on it inspired by these marquee letters sold at Urban. Love the vintage carnival feel to her final project! She used foam board (similarly to this DIY hand-lettered chalk sign ), so it’s buttery to cut. The red background, large round bulbs and serif font choice really makes the carnival style come to life.
With San Francisco's skies becoming increasingly cloudy, I needed a little light & sparkle to last me throughout the winter. Fortunately, I just happened to have a strand of little white lights and yards & yards of mirror garland on hand... This is one of those serendipitous projects made entirely from materials lying already lying about the apartment. Why can't they all be so easy? The brushed aluminum rod has a 3/4-inch diameter and was, I believe, leftover from making curtain rods years ago. It is available at most hardware stores and is so pretty.

I've been saving up to buy a rock tumbler for my rockhounding, but to date I've managed to save almost nothing. Growing impatient, I decided to build one for myself. As far as I can tell, a tumbler is just a canister that rotates with rock and grit inside. How hard can that be? I've managed to begin construction on one for less than $20. They typically cost around $150.
Who says you can’t bottle (and distribute) genius? Developed in Brazil to address under-illuminated slums, this simple design idea has been adopted by MIT students and expanded to other developing areas where many low-income homes lack access to either daylight or electricity. The physics of the concept are straightforward: the bottles are placed in roofs – half outside, half inside – and their lower portions refract light like 60-Watt light bulb but without the need for a power source. A few drops of bleach serve to keep the water clear, clean and germ-free for years to come. In total, one of these do-it-yourself lights takes maybe an hour to install, cutting an appropriate hole, inserting a bleached-water-filled bottle, and resealing around the resulting gap. Even where clean water is rare, a little can generally be spared for a half-decade of lighting.
Build Your Own $20 Outdoor Cob Oven for Great Bread and Pizza | The Year of Mud: Cob and natural building(The following entry is all about making a cob oven, a lovely and inexpensive outdoor pizza oven. The construction details have been trimmed back a bit, but this article should still give you a full idea of necessary materials and the building process for making your own oven!) I must admit, I’m a bit of a breadhead.
My list of projects to try grows weekly, but this one is definitely one of those which has a good shot at making the difficult leap from great idea to reality. And now you have a reason to save and recycle all of those gaudy Mardi Gras beads! This awesome tutorial comes from Heather, posted on the Dollar Store Crafts site.
