I have kept old furniture from a lifetime ago, always trying to re-use it over the years. I had this particular piece for over 22 years. It was a storage unit for my kids' toys and such. But after so many years I had grown tired of the look.
Έχω φυλάξει παλιά έπιπλα, προσπαθώντας πάντα να τα επαναχρησιμοποιήσω όλα αυτά τα χρόνια. Είχα αυτό το συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι για πάνω από 22 χρόνια. Ήταν μια μονάδα αποθήκευσης για τα παιχνίδια των παιδιών μου. Αλλά μετά από τόσα χρόνια είχα βαρεθεί την εμφάνιση.
With the summer heat it has been hard for me to get motivated to do much of anything. Have you all heard about the legendary New York humidity? As many of you know, I am supposed to be working on making the bedroom look presentable, I even made a mood board. But so far things have been slow. It takes a lot to get me to paint these days with Tatou, our puppy, running around.
One thing I did manage to tackle has been the bed. This is how it looked before but I knew it needed a lot of help to look presentable. Today I am going to show you how to make an easy no-sew bed skirt with drop cloth. Along with some other tricks!
Some of you may know that we've had a new addition to our household. Actually you should all know since I've been showing off my Mother's Day gift every chance I get. It's a Labrador puppy and we have named him Tatou.
Yes Tatou has taken over our lives and our home. It is littered with puppy toys and leashes, schedules and you name it. Things were all over the place till I remembered that I had a piece of plywood and decided to do some housecleaning.
It was time to take matters into my DIY hands and create a command center for my dog! I never in a million years expected to be doing a project like this. Haha!
It is the tenth of the month and that means it's time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. This time we have gotten together to share fashion and beauty ideas that cost less then ten dollars. Last month we shared container gardening ideas.
Now I'm no Fashion Diva, in fact the opposite is true. But I do know that being organized is important for all the Divas out there who need to find their jewelry pronto! Because you're not gonna get me to give you fashion advice!
But I will say this, I think it would make a fine Mother's Day gift! It is so easy to make this frame jewelry organizer.
I am a coffee addict! There I've said it.
I've had all my coffee stuff hidden away in the cabinets but when I get up in the morning I really don't want to have to look around to find my coffee making stuff. Now I had seen lots of friends making coffee stations and coffee bars and I really liked this idea.
This is what my makeshift coffee area looked like... meh!
It was inexcusable for me to have this mess. I needed to make something pretty right away!
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
