Also this. I cut off the top where our names are, but it’s a wood cut out of our “story” that I designed.

The antique 1920s bicycle on the mantel is our home’s unique statement piece.  I collect & restore antique bicycles, so with 10 foot celings & a large mantel, it was the perfect fit!!

@shutterbugKELLY:  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

 

I have a few things in our house that are DIY/Magazine/Pinterest Inspired:

We don’t have a front closet so I stacked old wooden crates to store shoes, mittens and other treasures.

I made an old window frame into a chalk board for the family room. After Christmas I will remove the stocking and change the quote.

A chicken wire message board (attach photos and notes with clothespins) made from an old window frame. Below is a reclaimed wooden table, painted purple and distressed.

A mixed media canvas to add colour to the bathroom.

A stitchery I made for front entry.

I’m not very crafty, but I’m super proud of these diy roman blinds I made!  You basically chop up some cheap Walmart blinds, glue fabric, and they’re awesome.  The second picture shows how they fold up all classily  🙂

I followed the template at http://made2style.com/2012/02/22/diy-roman-shades/.

Between these and my profile pic, can you tell I like birds?!

@lolot:  Love the parrot blinds!!! We have a small pet parrot. I think my husband would go crazy if I added one more parrot thing to our apt, though. 

 

Am really impressed by all the artsiness in people’s homes! Can’t wait to be able to decorate ours later this winter when we finally close!

This mirror took me a couple months to complete working on it on & off.  It’s a metallic gold color, you can’t really tell from the picture.. that I cropped myself out of!

Ok, so this isn’t so creative, but in a way it is because I like to repurpose things. I have an antique chifferobe that I bought when I was in college. It wasn’t for sale, but was a display piece at an antique store. I convinced the owner to sell it to me and used it as an entertainment center in the living room up until last year! (so about 15 years!) The TV was on the dresser part, and the drawers held DVDs, CDs, etc. The “door” part held shelves with the stereo, DVD player, etc.

But now I have it in the guest room and I use it to hold extra quilts, blankets, etc. I just recently changed out the boring wood knobs on the drawers for pretty ones from HobLob.

Before knob change:

After knob change:

I was looking for something fun and bold for my entry area and ultimately just decided just to make something myself.  I love how it turned out!
