Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
I had an old chair -actually there were two of them - and a few years ago I took them and shortened the legs so I could place them in front of the fireplace. They were great there, all nestled up next to the fireplace, but as with any good thing they started to fall apart after so many years.
Now being the good up-cycler that I am, I put the chairs in a corner and pondered what to do with them. At first I had a vague idea of making a sign and hanging it on the back of the chair. Because that was the part I was going to re-use. It would be all fall-like and pretty.
But as things have a way of going by the wayside and doing what they want on this blog, I ended up with something totally different. And so I am going to show you how to make a cool kitchen organizer from a chair.
Would you believe it is time for school to begin? Why in fact schools have already started in many parts of the world.
I did a casual survey on my Facebook page and found out that the traditional school opening of Labor Day and after, no longer seems to apply! In fact most of the readers who answered said school starts before Labor day in their regions. And let's not talk about South Africa, they start in January! That one totally threw me off.
Well I think those poor kids should have a few more weeks of relaxation to drive mom crazy just a bit more "wink"! But when they do finally go back to school, why not give them a gift to celebrate. But not any gift! Here are my 16 fun and easy Back to School DIY gift ideas.
As some of you may know I have been working on the small apartment space for the past few weeks, and will continue to do so for a while yet. You can see the whole series on the bottom of this post.
So far, I shared with you how I painted the bookcases with milk paint. The photos in that post were styled to show off the two bookcases. Pretty pictures but not reality. And certainly not practical!
Today I will be sharing the reality photos of the bookcases. What it actually looks like and what I have done to make it functional.
Pretty and practical bookcases the easy way, because we don't want thing to be too hard!
It's that time of the month again when I get to participate in the International Blogger's Club Challenge. For any of you who don't know, we are a group of friends who get together once a month to participate in a challenge and to talk about our countries, since we are international.
Last month we did a challenge on Spring crafts and we have also done spring before. So this time around we chose an entirely new to us project. We are going to show you our epic hits and epic fails, chosen from our past projects as bloggers. Some of these are not very popular so you may be seeing them for the first time.
There is just something so special about Christmas cards. I know we don't get very many anymore in the digital age. But when we do we need to have somewhere to display them. That's why today I am going to show you a super easy Display for Christmas Cards and Ornaments.
I had this piece of wood that I had previously used as a Halloween decoration but I also wanted to reuse it for Christmas. After all, for anything to survive in my home, it has to be multi-functional. I had painted this piece of wood using chalkboard paint and curated it by covering it with chalk. You can see a tutorial of that process here when I did my holiday signs.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
