Lay a thin strip of "backsplash" tile in between the large tiles, instead of just using grout. pretty!
place a can under candle before filler - you'll use less filler AND the candle will sit straight!!
Love this idea, For my Scrabble Family;~) You all know who you are and I miss each and everyone of you!! We need to play!
In a bedroom that is tight on space, eliminate the need for a side table by mounting the lamp and reading-material racks to the wall. Often called magazine racks, they'll sport eReaders and tablets, as well. Buy them unfinished at crafts stores and paint them to match the bedroom decor. Editor's Tip: Mount the racks to wall studs for stability.
Great tip: Mount reading light and magazine racks to the wall to save space next to bed.
Sink drawers - much more useful than sink cupboards.
3 bookcases from Ikea - one turned sideways & painted w/ chalkboard paint. ... ooohhh neat! i can see this also working for a fabric board or photo collage area. My only reservation with these types of storage is that the baskets can be hard to find in an ideal size, Ikeas shelf and box sizing is always ~just a bit~ too small

DIY Vintage Wood Stain: Mason jar: 1/4 cup used grounds, fill it up almost to the top with vinegar, approx 3-4 cups of vinegar to 1/4 cup grounds. It is the interaction between the steel wool and vinegar that is really important, grounds just add a brown tinge. Can use tea (strong), white vinegar goes brown, apple cider grey-ish, balsamic greenish. Search "ebonizing wood" steel wool & vinegar
Weathered wood stain
instead of a headboard...... bookshelves 'framing' the bed, and especially love the lights over head for reading
