Zazzle was kind enough to ask me to do a guest post for a DIY Father's Day project. Head over to their blog to see how to create fingerprint art keepsakes for DAD! You'll find out how to digitize your prints into vector art that can scaled to any size and the color changed to suit your creative vision.
I love luminaries during the holidays, but the traditional paper bags filled with sand only get one use which seems like a bit of a waste. Soup or vegetable cans make wonderful luminaries and you only need some paint, a hammer and a nail to create intricate patterns.
I've been slouching more and more at my desk and finally said "enough!" I searched online, but all the stand up desks were just so ugly and I love the design of my current desk. I asked my hubby to please, please, please help me fix my desk and this is how we did it.
Materials: 2 x 2 wood, dowel screws, spray paint, wood glue
- Cut wood into 4 sections into length desired to raise desk height
- Insert dowel screws into the newly created "leg extenders" and spray paint
- When dry, put wood glue on desk legs and screw extenders into place
We also added back the nylon bumper feet that were attached to the original legs
We finally got around to making valances for the bedroom. The hubby constructed the boxes out of foam insulation board. It's extremely lightweight so you can construct very large pieces that don't require massive hardware to hang. We just put two small L-shaped brackets and set the boxes on top.
We chose upholstery fabric as our covering and used Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue to attach it to the foam board. For a little extra security I inserted some dressmaker pins at an angle on the interior fabric folds. We are pretty darned proud of our new window treatment.v
We have been saving wine corks for about 4 years now and it was finally time to do something with them before they overtook the house. Yes, we like wine. A lot.
