I thought it might be fun to stroll down memory lane and share my top 5 DIY projects to date! You may remember a few of these, but there’s always the chance you missed one or two. I love when a great idea comes together and I particularly love these 5 DIY projects for your home.
1. How to Make a Wreath from Assorted China Plates
This was such a fun project! It took a bit of tweaking to pull it off but don’t worry ironed out the kinks for you in this how-to blog post. Do you have extra china you want to showcase? This is the project for you! This wreath is a mixture of plates, saucers, berry bowls, tea cups and a sugar bowl. However a wreath made of just tea cups and saucers would be beautiful! I loved shopping this wreath as much as I love how it turned out. Sharing all in this blog post.
2. DIY Card Catalog using Green Chalk Paint
How can we forget this one? If you follow me on Instagram you have seen this once… or twice, haha! I love the story with this piece which I share in the post. I wanted a beautiful happy green for this piece and with a mix of Annie Sloan’s Arles (yellow) and Antibes green I was able to bring my vision to life. Aside from the paint mixture, the dark wax was the star of this piece! Sharing all in this post.
3. Recycling Lighting using Embroidery Hoops
This project was a group effort between me and my husband and I’m happy to report our marriage survived it, lol. I had the idea to upcycle our small dated chandelier by adding an orb made from embroidery hoops and he helped to figure out how to make it happen! We saved a ton by DIYing this light fixture and I love how it turned out. Visit the post for the details.
4. DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Ticking Stripe Curtains
I fell in love with the pottery barn ticking stripe curtains but I knew I could make them…ahem…better 🙂 I found the gray ticking stripe fabric and realized I liked the softness of the fabric when I turned it backwards. These curtains are relaxed and soft giving a beautiful country cottage look to our living room. Sharing the process, the fabric, the tassels and the farmhouse curtain rods in this post.
5. Easy DIY Fireplace Cover Board
What was supposed to be a summer fireplace cover has become and all year round fireplace cover! I just love the look this very simple cover brings to this fireplace. Mainly because the alternative is a big black hole! This cover slips in and out so easy that using the fireplace is still an option. Sharing this 5th and final favorite DIY in the blog post below.
I hope you find inspiration with these 5 DIY Projects for your Home! If I were to add a 6th it definitely would be my Grapevine wreath topiary! She is still thriving 1 1/2 years later! A close second would be my Drop Cloths as Curtains (No Rods Needed)!
