StoolTable

Upcycled Table

This has got to be one of the easiest upcycling projects. I found this post from Kelsey on Tattered and Inked. I have seen so many stools at thrift stores, and often times it’s only one. They are usually real cheap and this DIY project a great thing to use them for. You can customize your colors to match the room you’re putting it. Although I really like the chocolate brown that Kelsey used. It would make a cute bedside table if you don’t have a lot of room next to your bed. Get creative and maybe use a squared top! As long as you buy a sturdy stool, you’ll have yourself a nice sturdy table!

I wanted to do something fun to bring to my family’s Easter brunch. I always try to do something creative and inspired by my old roommates baking talents I wanted to give these a try. As it turned out… These were SOOOO easy. I couldn’t even believe it. All you need is colored chocolate and some fresh strawberries. Continue reading for more details on how to do it yourself!

Chalkboard Mug

A great blog post by one of my favorites, Wit & Whistle. This is such a fun and quirky project and I think it would be a great for gift for coffee lovers. Read the directions, they are pretty straight forward. But do note that you can’t use regular chalkboard paint, it only works with porcelain chalkboard paint. Try this for yourself and send me examples of your creations at uncoverdiy@gmail.com!

Pretty Shoes

When I was little, I remember telling my mom she had so many shoes. She told me when you grow up your feet don’t change size so you can have more shoes because they’ll fit forever. Thus my new love – SHOES! I love this blog post by Green Wedding Shoes. It was originally created for a wedding but you could do this for any kind of occasion. It’s so easy and can constantly change to fit any outfit. What a great way to be “green” and creative.

Sunburst Mirror

Both these tutorials will jazz up your home. They are both so easy. All your need is some skewers, cereal and a hot glue gun! I think you could manage that. The final product looks like something you’d pay a lot of money for in a department store. I am going to go buy some skewers and a round mirror to make a sunburst mirror. Try it yourself and send me the pictures at uncoverdiy@gmail.com.

Egg Carton Flower Lights

A fun way to decorate, I’d love to make these. After the project is complete, you can’t even tell what your flowers originally were. My apologies, but this blog is in a different language. I still chose to include this because I think it’s such a unique project and turned out adorable! One of my favorite things about DIY projects is when people can’t even tell you make it. I think this is a perfect example of that. Enjoy this light up decor!

Garden Stone

This is blog post by Cari Mateo. I’m not sure where I could find these huge leaves but if I ever do, I’ll remember to pick a few to make my own garden stones. This project looks so easy though and it would make a great gift for someone as well. It would be affordable and everyone loves handmade gifts!

DIY Cake Stands

You’ll have to dive into the woodshop on this project! DIY Cake stands that will really stand out by Bee in Our Bonnet. After designing a display for a wedding open house, these sister’s created a great uniform look for this set of cake stands. This is a great project because it gives the table a lot of depth and height variations. I love the stark white plates on top of the teal blue! Change up your colors to match your theme.
