Why pay department store prices if you can make your own decor?
Learning to make some of our home decor is becoming very popular! At least from what I can see. We’ve got mom’s making benches, headboards and more! We love a good tutorial…..well at least I do.
Brittany is a Pretty Handy Girl!
Brittany has a beautiful blog and was kind enough to help me with blog critiques a couple of weeks ago in my community. Of course when I visited her blog, I fell in love with the Mud room bench. Holy Smokes!
I dream of a home with a mudroom. So did Brittany. She decided to create her own mudroom. Perfect place to store all the junk. Coats, school backpacks, shoes, hats, gloves…..you get the picture. What is even more spectacular is that she used several pieces of furniture parts to make the bench and mirror. So cool!
Her mind must be working all the time. This looks like an antique, a grand piece of furniture. Why can’t she be my neighbor?
One weekend her husband left for the weekend, taking the boys with him. Now most women would head to get a pedicure, grab some Chinese food and curl up with a good book or movie. (well that’s what I would do anyway), but Miss Thang here decided she wanted to build a reading space for her darling children.
DIY Home Projects
Telling people your children read in the closet, may not be the best idea………unless they’ve seen your closet. This is amazing!
Here’s her before and after……boy she really knows how to live it up.
She did a great job transforming her office.
DIY House Projects
dark, heavy and kids ransacking.
Light, fresh and no ransacking. I didn’t show the photos of her tutorial. She used a couple of old doors for her desk top. A lot less expensive than a new desk.
Why not just create it yourself? Seriously…..who is this woman? And why isn’t she in my neighborhood?
She even made her own roses for Valentines day. Does her husband know how lucky he is?
Maybe had I gone to Blissdom……..maybe I would have received one of these. I’m just going to keep telling myself that.
She made a few of these for bloggers that she follows. She made these from mouse traps! MOUSE TRAPS! If you don’t believe me, you can head over to her site and check out the tutorial. She seems so sweet.
Please pay her a visit, and surprise her with a ton of comments.
