i've been thinking about ways to give our house some color and design when we have no money to spend on anything right now. i came across a blog called make it and love it that has all kinds of DIY tutorials (home, clothing, food) and have found some projects that i can do with the kids where i can use things we already own (old boxes, fabric, glue, wood) to make.
things like . . .
. . . fabric covered boards for artsy wall hangings . . .
. . . photo collages . . . (ok, this is nothing too exciting but i have tons of frames i've picked up over the years, i just need to get photos into them! this is my reminder . . .
. . . fabric-covered storage boxes . . .
. . . i'm also inspired to spend just a *little* money on some things i have room to finally do now that we have a garage, like . . .
. . . painting an old piece of furniture so it's shiny and pretty and new . . .
. . . getting wood at the sale section of the local home depot type store and making cubicle shelving (or painting/staining the wood) . . .
. . . i'm excited!
