Even when I plan to rush in and grab a packet of bolts or a can of paint, I always leave three hours later with those things, plus a sample of random plastic tubing and tons of half-formed ideas. But when this project from Kara Paslay landed in my inbox, I ran to the store, bought the supplies, and wasted no time making one of these tabletops myself. This project is so easy to re-create; even the intricate triangle design that Kara has made requires mainly patience and a steady hand. I think this would make a wonderful project for outdoors; since the painting is on the underside of the glass, it can be protected from the elements and easily cleaned.

It’s great that you can customize the design however you please, but Kara’s bright, summery geometric pattern was too beautiful for me to pass up. Have a DIY project you’d like to share?

The Easiest Pillow Cover Ever

No measuring! No sewing! Just fold and tie. You need a piece of fabric 3 times as wide plus a few more inches and twice as tall plus a few more inches as the pillow. Place the pillow in the center, on the wrong side of the fabric. I used pinking shears to cut the fabric so it wouldn’t fray. Then fold the top down to the center. Fold both ends like the picture. Bring one side over the top of the pillow. Then the other side. Now tie the ends in a square knot. 34 DIY headboard ideas. The headboard is now looked at as a mainly decorative element in our bedrooms.

34 DIY headboard ideas

As it usually happens, it all started from a practical reason/purpose.The headboard, a piece of furniture that is attached to the head of the bed, was initially an element that isolated sleepers from drafts and cold. Back then the buildings were less insulated and thus such a feature was needed. The headboards were made of wood because it’s a material that’s less conductive than stone or brick for example.

Iron on Wall Art

It looks like this: (SORRY--bad camera phone picture) What is so bad about this you might ask? Well NOTHING--if your name is LANDON--not COLTON. BUT if you are COLTON and this is YOUR bed--and you are now over 2 years old and your older brother LANDON is now 4 and hasn't occupied this room or this bed for 2 years--then THERE MIGHT BE A PROBLEM WITH THIS WALL!! So the story goes like this: I wanted to do COLTON'S name on the wall--but I frankly didn't want to spend the $ to buy any more wood letters that I would have to paint or mod podge or something.

Well it did. I found THIS gal (at the Brassy Apple) doing THIS (Heat-n-Bond WALL ART). I was BLOWN AWAY by the AWESOMENESS and BRILLIANCE of her idea.
