11 DIY Necklace Storage Ideas

Jewelry boxes are nice and beautiful, both for storage and for display. However, they don’t work particularly well for necklaces. For these lovely pieces of jewelry you need something else. They have to seat tidy and neat so you can easily choose and take the one that better suits you that particular moment. There are lots of DIY projects that can help with that. Here are a few ideas:

One idea that easy to implement would be to have a simple pole mounted on a wall, maybe somewhere in a corner or a space you don’t usually use for something else. Add a few hooks and every one of them will hold a necklace. Your jewelry will be nicely displayed and won’t be hidden in boxes anymore.{found on Engineered Style}.

DIY Nightstand Ideas

I have a friend who really doesn’t love do-it-yourself stuff. As she stated, “I don’t really see the point. I’d really rather save my time and just BUY it!” While there’s something to be said for the ease of seeing something you want and making a purchase, I can’t help but feel she’s missing out on some major adventures and points of self-satisfaction by eschewing DIY altogether.

Of course, I can’t be too hard on her, because I come from the other extreme point of view. I’m a DIY nut. Take nightstands, for example. Sure, the market is full of these little pieces of furniture, but to find something that fits your style, space, color, and storage needs (and that is within budget) can often be super hard, if not impossible. DIY customization to the rescue! Here are five DIY nightstand ideas to get you started:

5 Quick Pick-Me-Up Spray Paint Projects

We all know that whole-home makeovers are rewarding. We also know they’re exhausting! Sometimes we just want a 5-minute project, something small that gives us immediate gratification. That’s where spray paint saves the day! It’s fast to apply, it’s quick-drying, and it requires no skill other than one’s ability to operate his/her fingers to produce successful results (as long as you apply it in multiple light passes rather than one heavy, drippy stroke).With spray paint can in-hand, feel free to around your house for some tired object that needs to be given new life. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Spray paint a mason jar. Who would have thought that a simple glass jar could look so creamy and milky? Of course, the color you choose has a lot to do with the vibe of the finished product (this one says springtime country charm to me), but I love this idea for making custom vases for any room of any color palette. The chiffon ribbon around the jar’s neck is a sweet touch as well.{found on decorchick}.

10 DIY Beds For Your Loving Pet Friends

Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person, the most important thing is to make sure your furry friend is happy. Taking care of a pet is easy but you have to take into consideration certain needs that your pet has. For example, I’m sure that your dog or cat would love to have a little bed of their own. It’s something that benefits both you and your pet. Here are a few ideas that you could use as inspiration for your next DIY project.

A lovely idea of a bed for either a cat or a small dog would be to use an old table and to give it a makeover. Take the table and place it upside down. Then use some wood to build the headboard and if you want you can also make some feet what the soon-to-be bed. Add a small mattress or something soft for your pet to sit on and the miniature canopy bed is complete.{found on junkcamp}.

Ikea’s Expedit: One Piece, Five Different Looks

One beautiful thing about Ikea furniture is its simple, clean-lined, contemporary design. One challenging thing about Ikea furniture is that everyone and his neighbor has those same clean-lined designs. Take, for example, Ikea’s Expedit bookshelves. You know the one – various sized rows of squarish cube-shelves. Highly functional, to be sure, but how do you set yours apart? How do you reflect your own personality in a piece that, frankly, is globally accessible? To get your creative juices flowing, below are five ideas to transform this wonderful yet generic Ikea piece into custom furniture that meets both your needs and your style:


For a very easy customized look, consider this temporary fix. Simply string a sweet crocheted (or not) garland across the top of the bookcase. This works particularly well in a nursery or child’s room, where buntings are right at home and where sweet and subtle details are the defining factors. I love how this idea packs such a powerful punch without any major repurposing of the Expedit.{found on katrinesfoto}.
