Easy DIY Repurposed Teacup Planter

I absolutely love repurposing things, and repurposing things into little planters is a fun way to give them a completely new life. I made my first teacup planter with a teacup from a set I inherited from my late uncle; it’s the girliest tea set you’ve ever seen, just covered in pink florals, which is...

Upcycled Painted Planter DIY

I love repurposing things from around my home instead of throwing them out when they’ve reached the end of their life. One of the most common ways I repurpose things is by turning them into planters for my large (and growing!) plant collection. Certain plants can thrive in almost any kind of planter, including a...

Stained and Painted DIY Plywood Art

Art can be expensive, but this stained plywood and metallic gold art is a cheap way to DIY yourself a piece that looks much pricier than it is! Plywood is cheap but still looks good dressed up, and it’s so thin that it makes the perfect item for wall decor. Many home improvement stores also...

DIY Scrap Wood Modern Mountain Art

One of the things I hate most about woodworking projects is throwing out the scraps that I’m left with when the project is completed. I always try to come up with fun and different ways to make good use of the pieces. Since scraps are usually pretty small, the projects have to be small, too....

It’s actually quite easy to customize a plain doormat; you just need a stencil and some outdoor paint! I’ve customized a few doormats, but this one is...

DIY Rustic and Modern Wood Christmas Tree

One of my favorite things to do is dream up projects that make good use of lumber from my wood scrap pile. I make a lot of bigger furniture pieces that require many different sized cuts of wood, which means that I often end up with lots of small pieces in all different lengths. I...

DIY a Sleek and Modern Cat Scratcher

Having cats doesn’t mean that your house has to turn into a disaster area of toys, treats, and eye-sore cat trees and scratchers. I have two energetic indoor cats who love to scratch, so they need to a designated area to play and sharpen their claws. But unfortunately most store-bought cat trees and scratchers are...

Make Painted Concrete Letters

This is one of those projects that I really wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. But since I either already had all of the supplies or they would cost under a few dollars, I figured it wouldn’t be a huge loss if it didn’t turn out. But it did turn out, and...
