How to build floating night stands

Night stands are perfect for depositing useful stuff in your bedroom. Interior home furniture for your bedroom includes night stands, lamps, dressers, and beds. If you have a very large bedroom, you could create a sitting area with a table, lamp and chair.

The night stand is designed to fit your alarm clock, perfect made for your late time reading (you can deposit your book on it), and of course, fits a good night lamp. The night stands come usually with drawers, so you can deposit all kind of stuff that you need right away, when you’re sitting in your bed.


Dramatic bedroom transformation with 600$

In my opinion we should all redecorate our room, especially our bedroom, after a period of time. I think that this particular bedroom makeover is a total blast. The difference between the old bedroom and the new one is extremely clearly. The brightness of the new room is putting the old dark room in the shadows.

The best thing I’ve noticed about the bedroom new design is the closet doors that look like chalk boards, with the inscription of he and she. It gives a teenage touch to the room. The curtains that cover the windows are much more alive than the old ones. It looks like, at the level of the bed, the curtain is plugged in a little bit of love and passion.

Just when you thought IKEA was for college students and young couples, some bloggers and DIY enthusiasts are transforming their basic furniture into stunning, one of a kind design. It all starts will a little bit of imagination. IKEA furniture is great because it’s inexpensive, and can be fixed up to look like a million bucks for just a little out of pocket expense. There are actually entire websites devoted to upcycling IKEA furniture like Ikea Hackers. You can transform bookshelves, dressers, and even light fixtures with all sorts of additional trimmings like paint and accessories. Here are some of our favorite examples:


Living room corner makeover

It’s always interesting to follow the transformation of a particular room of the house and to see how it slowly becomes something different. In this case, we’re only going to take a look at one corner of a living room and see how it was turned from an empty space into a cozy and inviting space.

In this corner, all we have is a chair and some shelves. The chair is obviously the star but the bookshelves are beautiful too. Let’s start with the beginning. First, the shelves were taken out and the back of the bookshelf was taped up in order to paint it. This portion was painted the same color as the dining room in order to create uniformity and continuity. Then the shelves were put back on and the books were added. Even though the owner is not a big book lover and prefers technology, the books felt like a must-have for an inviting home. They also make a statement.


Recycled coffee table from old doors

Lately people become more and more lazy and prefer to throw money for all sort of things instead of being creative and making it on their own. The next article presents how an ingenious creative person can make her own coffee table without much money and only with a little inspiration. We’ll see that besides the actual economy you’ll make, the greatest part comes with the joy of making something from scratch. The result is impressive, is unique and expresses your personality. You will be extra proud of you and your creation.

The coffee table we present is made from an old door. If you don’t have something similar at home, you can search for it at recycling center, such as The Rebuilding Center. This way, not only that you we spear some money, but you will also protect nature by recycling its materials. After you purchase your old door you should let your imagination fly away. Make first a project to be sure you will not have any surprises and start working.


Another office chair makeover

It’s time to take a look at another wonderful furniture makeover. In this case, it’s a chair, more exactly an office chair. Initially it looked old, damaged and it didn’t even have any upholstery. It was a disaster and not a lot of people would have chosen to bring it back to life. The project was quite complicated but we’re only going to focus on the easy and important parts.

In order to be able to save and transform the chair, it first had to be disassembled. The frame was fixed and each element was cleaned and repainted. The frame of the chair was painted black in order to match the décor and the other elements from the room. Also, black is a neutral color that basically matches everything and it’s easy to integrate anywhere. It’s also an elegant color. When the frame was ready, it was time to upholster the chair.


Cute DIY Coiled Rope Basket

Although it seems strange these days I began to crochet and knit.All these activities I used to do when I was in eighth grade at school. The reason I chose to practice these activities was the fact that I found some nice materials and the fact that I spend a lot of time watching my little baby. As I must supervise my activities are limited so I have decided to do something useful. It is like a DIY project which can make your day more beautiful and create something nice for you too.

Those who love DIY projects can also add another one to their collection. It is an easy DIY project which does not need too many materials and does not need too much space when you work at it. The most important materials are the thick cotton rope and some thin neon line which will help you create a cute DIY Coiled Rope Basket.You may also need some other materials like: tacky glue, wide-eye needle and glue gun. You may use this rope basket for depositing all kinds of small things, you may use it for your office desk or it can be used as a decorative item for your home.
