I used to scrapbook quite a bit a few years ago, but have since lost the desire to spend hours and hours putting together a book that generally sits on a shelf or under a bed gathering dust. Since then, I have moved on to shadow boxes. This is because I view it as creating one great scrapbook page that gets to be on full display in your home. With my niece arriving into the world sometime this month, I wanted to make her a welcome gift with this shadow box DIY.
Like with my style, I tend to switch things up with my bedspread every few months. I had spruced things up with some pillow covers in the winter, and now for the spring I wanted to change my duvet cover and my decorative pillows. I did not, however, want to spend a ton of money to do so, I decided to DIY my own duvet cover.
A few months ago I had posted a tutorial on how to customize an IKEA bath mat. I’m slowly but surely, making over my bathroom on the cheap with easy DIYs that will take a weekend afternoon max. This month I thought I’d share with you all how I customized a mesh recycling bin I bought from the dollar store the other week to look like it was dipped in paint.
This week’s DIY is a mail sorter makeover! We’ve had this sorter for ages and it was looking a bit beat up and sad, so I decided to give it a bit of a polish and add some pizzazz to it. I think this could be easily redone with one found at a thrift store or Goodwill.
This is a slightly different type of DIY post. I wanted to share the DIY decorative pillows and pillow covers I made the other weekend, but I don’t have a step by step tutorial like I usually do. Instead, I have a few links to the tutorials I used and a few tips to figure out what fabrics to choose and tips when making the pillows.
