Kids Table Makeover with DIY Stencil

At work we have a kids play area.  This is great so parents can take their time choosing their colours and the kids are entertained!  But wow, for a paint store, this table was really drab!  I just couldn’t handle it any more, so I got to work!

Accent Chair Makeover

Coral is one of my favorite colours.  The perfect mix of orange and pink is amazing!   I knew when I picked up two of these chairs for $11.00 I wanted a bright coral colour.  So I went to the fabric store and found the fabrics that would be the inspiration for this whole project!

DIY Drawer turned Shoe Rack

My daughter has more shoes then my entire house hold put together.  And she’s only 2!  After our fire, we had so much amazing support from the community and Myra didn’t go with out a thing, especially shoes!  I needed to come up with a solution, the floor just wasn’t cutting it any more.  I had picked up a couple of lonely drawers from a bid site one day with Myra’s shoes on my mind. Here’s a quick tutorial on a great kids shoe storage!

DIY Fire Place Upgrade

So as some of you may know, our house burnt down a few months ago.  When we were on the hunt for a place to rent during the rebuild, it was almost impossible to find something!  Luckily we have amazing friends…  One friend offered us his townhouse, on one condition, that we paint the walls and do some minor upgrades so he can sell when we move out! Well this is right up my alley.  I would probably go nuts if we rented a place that wouldn’t allow me to paint!

Ombre Love – Learn to do this yourself!

So as you may have read in my earlier post, our home had burnt down!  We are currently staying in a temporary townhouse while our house is being rebuilt.  Now I get to decorate this place and then soon our brand new home! I am starting with our daughter’s room.

I went into a couple thrift stores just hoping to find a project I could work on at work.  I was just waiting for inspiration to hit me! And it did, for a total of $24.00!

Here’s the second play kitchen I’ve made for our daughter!

So last year for our daughters first birthday, I turned an old entertainment unit into a play kitchen for her!  Then our house was burnt down and it was lost.  But she loved playing with it, it was one of her favorite things!  And now in our temporary house while ours is being rebuilt, we don’t have a lot of space, so the Ikea Duktig play kitchen is the perfect size!  But boy oh boy was it ever boring in my eyes.  So I decided to spice it up!

80’s Headboard turned Book Nook

Do you remember those tacky 80’s headboards? The ones with built in shelves?  They were heavy, and dark, and awkward! Most of the time you could barely give them away for free, but here I was, jumping for joy when I found one for $10! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and already had my inspirational wallpaper on hand.  This was going to be our daughters new book nook!
