Remember Briana’s whimsical empty frame ideas? Well, last month, my roommate brought home three pretty frames, and I was inspired to share a few new ways to update old frames. Now, the pictures in the frames I mentioned are not so pretty: three images of single roses, all with some sort of French-looking scribble around them. I couldn’t imagine they were to my roommate’s taste, but last night my fears were officially subsided. She mentioned she had no idea what to do with them and was thinking of giving them away. At those words, my inner MacGyver came out, and we came up with some pretty fun ideas. Thanks, roomie!
Got chicken wire? If not, it’s super easy to find and makes creating this adorable project a cinch. And if you liked Briana’s jewelry holder, you’ll love this colorful message board. Christy from Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer even made cute clothespins to match. Check out her blog for the full tutorial.
Chalkboard paint is still all the rage, but instead of just painting the glass and hanging your board on the wall, why not get a little more creative? Head on over to DIY network to see how you can make this handy serving tray.
I get so excited whenever I think about this makeup magnet board (as a child I swore I would be a makeup artist, then a botanist, then a vet, but I digress). Paint, a sheet of metal and a few magnets go a long way with this genius craft. Visit Laura Thoughts for her step-by-step guide.
This easy-to-make memo board would work in any home but is perfect for a dorm room. Keep track of your to-do list, and add color and style to your place all at the same time. Get the details here.
Don’t you love the interesting look of this cool, rectangular wreath? I certainly do, and even more, I love the fact that it’s all decked out for fall. How festive! Check out Finesse Your Nest, and learn to make your own colorful fall wreath.
