Some Favorite DIY Building Project Finds :)
Here are some recent finds that I love showing fabulous remakes, up cycling, and repurposing of inexpensive and even free supplies!
1) DIY Ottoman from a pallet
Beautiful ottoman and who would even know it is made from a pallet !!
I am so excited about this project! It is a total redo of our king size bed. A DIY headboard, platform bed concept from up cycled pallets, and a bed skirt! Really a total overhaul of our master bed!
As you will see below, in the end, I went on and wrapped up the project and pitures without the bedskirt, but I plan to add a bedskirt that starts at the top of the box spring and drops to the floor. So in the end The actual pallet platform will be pretty much covered by a straight pleated tan colored bedskirt to tie it all together. This is a project I will go to Hobby Lobby for and then sew to my needed dimensions. :)
As you will see I am starting from the floor up with a new base for the bed (bye bye old frame) and I will be using up cycled pallets. You need four pallets to make the king size base for your bed or eight if you want more height. If you add four more to make a stack of eight they just stack on the other four. It probably would be a good idea to secure the stacks of four o…
I have always loved crafty, DIY, made with love type projects, but over the last few years this area of my life has multiplied drastically! I love that it has too!!!!! I so enjoy when someone takes a piece of furniture that you can tell has already been well loved and very used and remakes it into something new and gorgeous again in a totally different way! The piece just keeps giving and allows another person to love it until it looks well loved for many years all over again. These type of projects are so budget friendly too of which I am also a huge fan. You can yard sale shop, estate sale shop, etcetera and find pieces for no real expense and just end up with a total gem! Love it! I've found some great blogs and websites for some really neat remakes of furniture lately and just wanted to share! This blog link shows a total room makeover that is really neat and budget friendly which is wonderful! My favorite piece was the dresser that was turned into a blanket hu…
This is more of a reflective and light bulb type of moment for me than my normals posts on my blog about crafts, my sweet little boy, and my family moments. This is a growing moment for me spiritually. My family, like every family, has various situations that we struggle with from time to time, but lately there has been an echoing phrase that keeps coming to us in so many ways and I needed to share... "The strongest position you can be in is complete surrender". This past Thursday a complete stranger by all aspects, but yet an instantly dear and precious support team said this to me and I noted it immediately as it is so true. As I shared this talk with my parents my mom had tears well up in her eyes because just the day prior a sweet aquantance, but someone she really just came to know said the same to her, but related to a different current trial. Over the last week my family and I have been brought into the path of strangers, friends, and family members say…
