You may have something ugly and really do not want it in your house because it clashes with everything else but it is practical for storage. What do you do short of tossing it out and buying a new one? Well that is not what this blog is about. You know we strive for DIY solutions here.
And if you've followed me for any length of time you know that my motto is "The Power of Paint". The simplest way to transform something is with paint.
See the ugly below? It was sitting in my living room looking oh so ugly!! But I found a way to solve this problem! I'm going to show you how to paint cubby storage units the easy way.
I've been saving up these photos for a while now and I really don't know why. They were all taken in the area of downtown Manhattan, a bit of SoHo and primarily to the west which is a commercial area and known as Hudson Square.
Today I'm taking you on a tour and sharing a monumental surprise at Hudson Square in New York.
A few days ago I was looking over my Most Popular Posts for 2018 and realized that I use old clothes quite a lot.
I am not a fan of throwing things away, in fact that's what this blog is built on. Clothes in particular, hold a special place in my heart because they have such pretty colors, patterns and interest in general. It got me to thinking that I should share all that with you. I went over my projects and came up with 15 ways to re-purpose old clothes into something new.
A few months back I went to Bryant Park in New York's Midtown to meet some friends.
Bryant Park is located behind the New York Public Library just off of Fifth Avenue. I sat in one spot and just photographed. This is my visit to the restored Bryant Park and its surrounding areas.
It is that time of the month again when I join my friends from all over the world. I am talking about the International Bloggers Club.
A few months ago we started a new theme that involves using the Anniversary years as our guideline. We featured projects with paper and projects with cotton. The last time we did Christmas And now we I am going to show you how to make a natural clay Valentine's heart garland.
Make sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post to see what my friends have made this month.
