DIY Canvas Painting

DIY Canvas Painting

I am probably one of the least artistic people ever, but I still wanted some cute art for my little guy’s nursery. I started browsing Etsy and other online shops for a giraffe print to match the rest of his nursery, and realized everything was really expensive, especially for a 20″ x 34″ print. I [...]

DIY Distressed Nightstands

DIY Distressed Nightstands

Before our house was even built, I began searching for the perfect nightstands. I knew I wanted white ones, but when I couldn’t find any that I liked at a decent price, I decided I would find some and paint them! I found these beauties at a local hotel furniture store (kind of like a [...]

DIY Nailhead Trim Headboard

DIY Nailhead Trim Headboard

Oh, how I love my our headboard! Though my husband is a frugal guy, he is generally not very happy with anything DIY, partly because I was taking up the garage with all my projects. He is not one of those crafty, handy, electrical geniuses, so I also think he was scared of making something like [...]

DIY Decorative Storage Crates

DIY Decorative Storage Crates

I think any teacher (and probably most mamas) will tell you that their classroom or house is too small and they’re looking for more storage space. I teach kindergarten and it requires a lot of supplies: crafts, paper, pencils, toys, games, puzzles, manipulatives, books and many more supplies. I’m often looking for more ways to [...]

DIY Kids Art Gallery Wall

DIY Kids Art Gallery Wall

In February, P started at his current daycare. It is mostly a preschool, but provides child care for toddlers that are 18 months or older. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a preschool, or if all daycares begin artwork at such a young age, but he started bringing home art. He brought home art [...]

DIY: Jazz Up Your Front Door

DIY: Jazz Up Your Front Door

I love seeing houses with beautifully painted front doors; it’s very popular right now! But if you want yours to stand out among the rest, try glazing it! It’s a quick and easy way to make the details in your door pop and make your house stand apart from all the neighbors. I was starting from [...]

DIY Tiered Planter

DIY Tiered Planter

We just recently built a house, and since I can’t plant any flowers or shrubs in our weed-filled front yard (we have to wait for the irrigation guys to come put our system in), I decided I might as well plant a bunch of potted plants. I was browsing Pinterest one day and came across this [...]

DIY Air Freshener

DIY Air Freshener

DIY air freshener? Something comparable to Febreze? Something that could save me about $5.44 for a 32 oz bottle that would normally cost me around $5.59? When I found this, I had to give it a try! I found the recipe on Fake it Frugal and I am so glad I did. What you need: 32 oz bottle [...]
