Room Inspiration

We will be moving into a new home...that means new room inspirations and lots of before and after pictures! Just keep in mind...our family of 5 has been living in a 900 sf, UPSTAIRS, 2 bedroom apartment for over a year...with a baby, a newly turned 2 year old and a 4 year old red head! 
To have a HOME is so exciting! And it is fun to be able to be inspired and think that we can paint on a wall! 
And a garage space for CRAFTING and BUILDING in!
 A HUGE THANK YOU to my in laws for helping make this happen for our family! 
Stay tuned for our great new adventures!

10 Easy DIY Projects

1. Plate Art

Here's How:
Glue contrasting colors and sizes of plates together with epoxy or all-purpose glue (clamp them with a belt or bungee cord while the glue dries) and hang with plate hooks in columns on the wall.

2. Find the Bright Side

Here's How:
Don't let the inside of a wood-stained bookcase or hutch keep beautiful display pieces in the dark. Show off the contents and lighten the decorative mood of the entire room by painting the shelves' interior backing a lively color. Add even more personality by wallpapering the inside with a fun pattern. Or paint foam board and cut to fit perfectly inside. Take your pick!

3. Easy Artwork

Here's How:
Gather a handful of floating frames to hang on a wall in an abstract arrangement. Fill the frames with beautiful letterpress cards, your grandmother's handkerchiefs, or anything that strikes your fancy and complements your decor.

4. Decorative Memo Station

Here's How;
Turn a plain bulletin board into a decorative accessory that's functional, too. Display a bulletin board in a stylish frame. Then add a decorative wall decal on the cork to dress up the memo board.

5. Unexpected Bookcase

Here's How:
Turn a non functioning fireplace into a practical and pretty storage space by outfitting it with shelves. Measure the opening and build a plywood insert to fit snugly inside. Cut shelves to fit across. Then paint the pieces and wallpaper the back of the insert. Screw the shelves in place and set the insert in the firebox.

6. Furniture Facelift

Here's How:
Turn a tired piece of furniture into a new treasure. Search flea markets, craigslist and garage sales for old furniture with good bones. This charming desk was originally a vanity table. After the mirror was removed and repurposed as a cork board, the table was sanded, primed, and painted. Pretty papers decoupaged onto the drawer fronts and new knobs add decorative character.

7. Creative Dining Display

Here's How:
In the dining room, try this creative alternative for a standard hutch or china cabinet. Hang a pair of bookcases horizontally on the wall, then slide a third on the floor below. Display favorite dinnerware and keep serving pieces handy in the cubbies. Install the middle bookcase at counter height so it serves double-duty as a buffet station or bar.

7. Pretty Wall Panels

Here's How:
Finding artwork to make an impact on a large, empty wall can cost a fortune. Instead, make your own for a custom look and fit. Choose sheer curtain panels to coordinate with your room's decor. Paint large stripes on the wall slightly wider than the panels. Mount short curtain rods at the ceiling to hang the curtain panels in front of the stripes.

8. Jewelery Holder
Here's How:
Dress up your side of the bedroom and keep all your jewelery organized. Find different size frames, place scrapbook cardstock/paper inside frames, remove glass, add some small knobs or decorative hooks. Hang up your frames and jewelery and walla...adorable decorative jewelery hangings! 

9. Clever Bath Cabinet

Here's How:
Add storage and display space on a blank bathroom wall by converting an old dresser drawer into a decorative medicine cabinet. Cut a plywood shelf to fit inside and nail it in place. Paint the cabinet to match your room, and decorate the back with wallpaper or scrapbook paper, if desired (glue the paper in place before you secure the shelf). Screw eye hooks into the bottom and thread a painted dowel rod through for a towel bar.

10. Changing Table into Mobile Storage
Here's How:
Change up your baby changing table by removing cushions, painting (i would paint fun color) and adding whatever you could need. Pictured is a beverage cart. They installed wine glass hooks on bottom shelf, hanging utility or shower rack on out side, pop can holder to store cans, and a raised shelf for plates. I would  customize it more to an outdoor bbq cart. Add hooks along otter edge to hang grilling utensils, add a napkin holder, cups and utensil holder etc. Use bottom shelf to add in a decorative bowl to add ice and condiments for burgers. But make it whatever you choose. Be creative!
