I love these hanging shelves I put up on our back porch. I decided the hanging shelves would look great with some small pots and plants. I found these terra cotta pots at Home Depot for $1.29 but knew they needed some TLC. I am not a fan of the bright orange color (as seen above on the left). I have also never “aged” terracotta pots before but knew I wanted them to actually “look old”, not look like they were “painted to look old”. So today I am going to share how to age terra cotta pots.
I spend a lot of time shopping at vintage flea markets. And sometimes I buy things that I know I can repurpose.
A few months ago I bought these three vintage lampshades from my friend Judy @vintagejunktionla. I knew immediately I wanted to make them in to a chandelier.

I have been wanting to make a DIY pillow like this for Valentine’s Day. We have two birthday Valentines in our family so I am always looking for cute Valentine’s Day gift ideas. This pillow is my favorite one so far! I made it without using a sewing machine and used a pillow cover from IKEA!
It’s fun to decorate mantles, tables, trees, and windows for the Christmas holiday. But what about places that aren’t typically dressed out in décor? Like bookshelves? Today I am going to share how to make Christmas book covers.

I have definitely gotten into the Christmas DIY mode in a really big way. In the last week I made wrapping paper, Pom Pom Christmas trees, a dress form tree skirt, and an Advent Calendar. I am excited to share with you how I made this Burlap Christmas Tree Garland. I love it hanging on the mantle. Of course it would also look great above a door or window.
I love to wrap gifts. But finding wrapping paper is sometimes hard to do.
I had an idea that maybe I should make some wrapping paper this Christmas. Of course, I know the wrapping paper would have to fit in my red and white theme. Years ago I used the styrofoam printing method to make art in my son’s elementary school classes. I knew someday I would find a way to use this creative printing method again. I can’t wait to see what you think.
