Here's some of the diy's that I've been dreaming about lately. Right now, Chris and I are apartment hunting, and here in LA it can be difficult to find something that you love, that won't cost you a small fortune. So I've been on the lookout for easy and affordable ways upcycle and dress up a small space.
DIY upholstered Headboard. This site includes a very detailed tutorial. I've seen a lot of them out there but this one makes it look so simple.
Lace stencil table from A Beautiful Mess. I think this would be a cute accent on a smaller piece like sidetable.
DIY Room divider. This one is from Design Sponge, where they have a very helpful tutorial as always, and the cork backing is like the best idea ever. The places we're looking at are pretty small, or "cozy", so this would be a great way to create a new space for an office.
LOVE this eclectic garland. I've made a ton of garland, but I like this one because of the photos and keepsakes, it's really personal, would be cute in a bedroom.
This cross stitch wall painting. Now I probably couldn't get away with this in an apartment, but the design looks so pretty! Maybe just a baby one in the bathroom?
After I saw this I was so inspired to go out and find something shabby and paint it a super bright color.
This refurbished wardrobe is pretty awesome too. It's embroidered!
I love this idea. I want to find an old chair and dip the legs in turquoise. Wouldn't that be cool?
Do you have an projects planned to spruce up your pad this summer?
