Glass bottle turned into a flower vase

Whenever you need something to put your flowers into but don’t have a vase, you need to improvise. Usually the easiest way of doing that is by using a glass bottle. It might be perceived as a temporary solution because it lacks the beauty and style vases usually have, but that can be easily changed.

So let’s see how you can turn a simple glass bottle into a lovely bud vase by using the decoupage technique. You can use either a glass or a plastic bottle. For that you’ll need a glass or a plastic container, a mod podge, a paint brush or sponge, scissors and some colored or patterned paper. First you need to wash and dry the container. Than use the paper to cut it into ½ -1 inch strips or squares. Next, take the pieces of paper and place them face down on a flat surface. Use the paint brush or the sponge to cover the back of the paper with mod podge.

DIY rope headboard for a personalized bedroom

There are lots of ways in which you can personalize your bedroom. It all depends on your preferences. The furniture you buy is not everything you need to worry about.

It’s so simple and the result is so interesting. You can choose whatever color of rope you want. It would be even more interesting to use two or more colors for contrast.

Creative DIY project: changing table turned into an office desk

When you have a particular piece of furniture that stopped being useful to you it’s always a good idea to turn it into something else. Find a new purpose for it and allow it to be useful once more. For example, this office desk was once a changing table. The table has been customized and now it has two functions: it’s both a functional storage unit and a work area.

The table features practical storage space underneath and it also includes a display area for the laptop. It’s a great solution for working parents that search for a way to successfully combine work with their duties as a parent. This table is a nice and simple example that shows where to start from. The changing table got a new and fresh look and the project was quite simple. All the table needed was some fresh paint, some shelf-liners and fabric containers. It was quickly turned into a practical work area.
