WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR DIY RUNS D-R-Y
I never thought it would happen. It has actually never happened before.
Since I started blogging four and a half years ago, I’ve had a steady flow of DIY ideas flooding my mind (and to-do list). But, with my sudden inspiration to add two bonus lessons to the Be A Panel Queen e-Course and then the necessary push to get them done, I became tapped out in the creativity department last week. Literally. Completely. Shocker!
How to Get Your DIY Mojo Flowing Again
Where do we go when we need instant inspiration? That’s right…Pinterest! I followed a Pin to a site with all sorts of great ideas to share with you. The site is Postris. And, other sites, too. Click any picture to go to the post.
This picture caught my eye right away because I had one like this and Interior Design Diva (aka Spunky Daughter) begged for it before I had a chance to use it. Hers (mine) is lime green, and it’s perfect for hanging towels in her bathroom. I will never look at a broken old chair and think “trash” again.
Don’t we all love ideas that put our old stuff to good use? I sure do!
How many of us have an old globe that we can’t bear to put in the trash? These globe lights are awesome.
I’ve wanted a map room for quite a while now (and have something cool and unused to hang on the wall, even!), but I’m out of rooms. What do you do in that case – move?
This project is the easiest of all. Books are everywhere in my house. How about yours?
One of you mentioned recently that you’d like posts about how to re-upholster furniture. I don’t have any of those projects in my future (I hope!), but I found this extensive tutorial (from Ashley at Make It and Love It) with loads of instructional pictures. I thought I should share it. If I needed to re-upholster a chair, this is the post I would want to see! Here’s the gorgeous before and after.
Great job, Ashley!
Last but not least is a cabinet door made into a chalk board. It didn’t require much work – just some chalk board paint. Love the chalk holder!
ID Diva has several ideas for her new apartment we’re moving her into next week. I hope to have some unique projects to share with you soon. We gathered supplies (from the barn) for the first one on Sunday. Does that give you a hint? Yes, broken fence rails are useful for many things!
See? Not to worry. That DIY mojo is already returning, thanks to ID Diva (and Pinterest).
Any ideas here you want to try?
