Beautiful idea but $32 on etsy + $10 s/h. I know that I can make this for about 2-3 bucks with a piece of barn wood, leftover kids blocks and some hooks. I don't care that much for the black blocks think that I would distress them in their natural colors
Colorful frames! love this idea for a baby's room, get old, beat-up vintage frames and paint them in coordinating colors. Would be a neat way to have lots of family photos in there, or even scraps of fabric to brighten the room.
From Craft Kitsch to Cool
spray paint your folding chairs >> Simple way to update old and boring chairs. #DIY What a cool idea - our chairs are the yucky green/gray they come in. I think making the chairs colorful might make me use them more and enjoy them when we do. Note to self: Find some time in 2013 to paint my chairs rainbow colors. #ModerationNation
Any bottle of wine you drank recently would work fine for such project. Although I recommend you to choose unusual and good looking bottles. From them you can make really cool looking lamps. To make the lamp you need to clean your bottle and allow it to dry. Next, you need to drill a hole for a power cable near the bottom of the bottle using diamond head bit. Sand the edges of the hole and clean the bottle. Put the christmas lights in the bottle and you’re done
