Chair Cover DIY

It’s DIY Blog Hop time again, and this month I’m sharing how I gave my dining area an easy and inexpensive makeover with this simple Chair Cover DIY using painter’s drop cloth.

DIY Garden Bench Makeover

This DIY Garden Bench Makeover is one of my favorite projects of the year! Don’t you love it when you can upcycle something you already own and use it to solve a current need, rather than having to buy something new? Those are my favorite kind of projects!

DIY Wine Cork Flag

We have a lot of wine corks around our house. 🍷😂 Any corks from bottles that were consumed on special or memorable occassions get labeled and saved in our Wine Cork Memory Box, but that still leaves me with quite a few corks that get tossed in a big vintage jar, just waiting for something exciting to happen to them. This DIY Wine Cork Flag allowed several of those lonely corks to make their patriotic debut. How to Make a […]

Even though I didn’t particularly like the quotes that were already on them, I knew that without much trouble, they’d work perfectly for this DIY […]

DIY Beadboard Kitchen Cabinets Project

My DIY Beadboard Kitchen Cabinets Project was inspired by this antique beadbard corner cabinet that I gave a makeover to last fall. Originally, the corner cabinet was a vintage green color and pretty dirty. Once I cleaned it all up and gave it a fresh, white coat of paint, the beautiful beadboard became so much more noticeable, and my vintage-loving heart knew I needed more beadboard in my kitchen. 💕🤣 Before the DIY Beadboard Kitchen Cabinets Project I have two […]
