The DIY’ers – Link Party #16

Welcome back to The DIY’ers!  The DIY’ers is a place for us all to share our DIY projects, renovations and home decor ideas.

Hope everyone enjoyed the day off yesterday.  We spent the day figuring out why our garbage disposal stopped working.  And by “we” I mean I watched the babes while The Hubs tinkered.  Looks like a much bigger electrical issue effecting two other outlets in two other rooms.  Do we hire an electrician and rewire or just plate up the outlets?  Decisions decisions.

Okay, on to much funner topics, it’s party time!

First up is this minature table set.

Carrie of Lovely Etc. started with a thrifted table and made it over using chalk paint.

The DIY Mama made this lovely wall hanging to add to a gallery wall.  I love how it overlaps another photo at the bottom and the top goes over the top of the wall.  It’s an interesting arrangement.

And finally, Holly from Love the Tompkins added some tiles to her faux fireplace.  It’s such a thing of beauty—I’ve always craved having a mantle to decorate!

Quick Tip: Fake a Frame for Your Canvas

coat rack close up

Just popping in real quick on this lovely holiday weekend to share a quick tip.  Creating your own artwork on canvases can often feel unfinished when all is said and done.  I typically paint the sides of my canvases for a more intentional look but I’ve come up with an even better alternative. But first, let me introduce you to my new coat rack that I’ve been stocking at Ikea:Tricks!  My new coat rack is the quick tip.  Let’s pan […]

Home Happenings – August ’14

box of four donuts

AUGUST // I’m so not ready for summer to be unofficially over!  Summer has been good to us (hello, we have a new happy and healthy baby!) but I’ve yet to check everything off our summer bucket list (I pulled out the Padres onsie from storage so we need to make it out to a ball game as a family of four).  I’ve had to cancel our summer vacation twice now (military schedule…)  so it’s looking more likely that we’ll […]

A Little Window Dressing

DIY Vinyl Roller Shades by Brave New Home

Ready for another triangle vinyl decal project?  I’ve decorated walls with them, a jewelery box and this time I’m putting vinyl on vinyl. I genuinely dig this whole triangle trend.  They’re graphic, fun, and yeah, I guess trendy.  No shame in jumping on a decorating trend if it really speaks to you and fits within your design aesthetic.  I still don’t plan on doing a mason jar craft in the foreseeable future…We have this little window area in our master […]

Blue Chalk Sticks from Clippings

allowing succulents to scab

Much like my mantra for the indoors, I started small outside to build gardening confidence.  I chose this tiny strip of yard next to the fence.See, not all of our yard is dust bowl from me killing the grass.  Some of it just started out as dirt! I started this project towards the end of my pregnancy (so over three months ago now).  I was hoping to share the “after” photos after tackling the area that houses the trash cans […]

DIY Essential Oils Storage Box

1 - DIY Essential Oil Box - Brave New Home

I’m so relieved to finally be posting this project!  Have you ever had one of those projects that just went wrong at every step of the way?  I would have just scrapped this project altogether but I really needed a place to store my growing collection of essential oils.I bought a set of essential oils a few years back and have supplemented my set with an extra bottle of essential oil here and there.  I’d been keeping the bulk of […]
