DIY Vintage Metal Storage Bins

Do you ever have a “oops” project that just “accidentally” turns out to be fabulous? Well, okay maybe not fabulous, but this was sort of an experiment that turned out way better than I expected! I took a plain old fabric storage basket and turned it into a DIY vintage metal storage bin! diy vintage metal storage bin

Wanna know how to make this yourself? I tell ya, this one take some careful techniques and a very special product to get this look… Pffft!!!

Nah… all you need is a little spray paint and about 5 minutes! My kinda DIY!!

Here’s how it all started out. After I got my bookcases in the home office, I realized I needed to some space for Ms. Bree’s toys. Lots of toys. Lots. Everywhere.

I already had these fabric storage baskets, but they didn’t blend with the new decor in the office so I set out on an experiment to pretty them up. [Please click to continue reading…]

Fall Harvest Mantel Decorating

Happy Fall! For over a year now, there’s always been a mirror above the mantel in the small, but quaint living room of our house. I always thought it helped to make the room look bigger. But over time I got tired of only being able to see the ceiling fan in the mirror. And it wasn’t too picture friendly either.fall-mantel-decor(1)

 

No matter what angle I tried to shoot from, it was there. I can hide cords, toys, dog bowls, and piles of mail, but I can never get rid of that ceiling fan.

So I had three options. Live with it, get rid of the ceiling fan, or get rid of the mirror. Well, obviously relocating the mirror was the easiest and most logical. :)

Then I had to decide what to fill the large wall above the mantel with. I’m planning a living room makeover for next year (imagine that!) but for now I built a wooden panel to fill the space where the mirror used to be. [Please click to continue reading…]

Pottery Barn Knock-Off DIY Clock

I’m so excited to finally get to share my DIY clock that I’ve been working on for the home office makeover. I’ve been searching for a large clock and finally found the look I wanted, but at a hefty price tag. Hefty like $279! Uh, yeah. No way I can squeeze that in the budget no matter what excuse I come up with. So I made my own version of my favorite Pottery Barn clock for only $20!
