Aaaaaaaand…here we go! As many of you may have heard…I’m a Pinterest super-nerd. What, with endless scrolling pages filled with unique ideas, design candy and the like, how does a girl help herself? Alas, the joke is not on me; I have turned this decor dorkism into some of my own handy how-tos that I wish to round-up for y’all today. Who knows, maybe they’ll inspire you to express your “get-er-done” geekiness and make something fabulous for your home. Oh, if you’re at all pinterested (ba-dum-bump!)…follow me on Pinterest! Thank you!
This “How to make ‘Home Sweet Home’ stacked planters” was my very first pin to go “viral”! If I wasn’t a Pinterest fanatic before….well, I was all in when it hit over 4,000 repins (update: now, over 8,000)! Oh, btw, I’d love to share the “pin-love” by introducing y’all to these wonderful Pinterest peeps who repinned my projects. Click into the images and check out their boards as well!
HomeJelly was previously the DiggersList blog where I developed my DIY “legs” with simple and inexpensive projects like this serving bowl bird bath.
This project will always live in a special place in my heart. My 82 year old mom helped me revitalize her once weather-beaten bench into this delightfully colorful show-stopper! It has her name painted all over it!
Talk about a learning curve! Sheesh! This labor of love (made for my brother-in-law and his wife’s house-warming present), was definitely labor intensive. I made about the same amount of mistakes as I did things right…but, I certainly learned a lot! Click and follow the link jump above to glean from my errors! (Someone should!)
This project was the very first product I ever sold! Hurray! I received some very nice comments and knew I was on to something. So, besides an extensive how-to, I made it available on our HomeJelly etsy shop…there are still more available! COMING SOON: a downloadable template will soon be available which will make this how-to that much easier!
It’s amazing how every how-to has a story. This one I found in New Orleans when we were out scout’n cool finds. So, technically, I didn’t actually do this project myself. However, I was able to really examine the very cool rollable ceiling beam and planter, put 2 + 2 together and create a fun and doable project for y’all! Thanks NOLA! You’re the best!
I am continually inspired by our friends at Habitat For Humanity ReStores (and a special shout-out to the ReStore Riverside). Their Pinterest boards are always chock-full of fantastic repurposing ideas, along with inexpensive ways to reuse ordinary objects and turn them into amazing decor. Here, I took inspiration with a collage frame that I had laying around the house for a year. I didn’t want to throw it away, so I filled it will some (free) upholstery fabric samples and created instant art!
This is my latest how-to that is part of a series I will be blogging on this coming month about our living room remodel whoohoo! This is a little bit of country…a little bit of industrial rock ‘n roll!
