As you know, I’ve recently fallen in love with home decorating and design blogs, and I’m eager to start working on our new house! Since we’re busy with closing + beginning the moving process today, Emily offered to step in and share some of her favorite DIY tutorials with all of you! Take it away, Emily!
Like Julie, I too am in the process of moving—though while she is moving into a fabulous big old house I am moving into a lowly little old apartment—but hey we’ve all got to start somewhere! Also like Julie I have been obsessing over home-design blogs—she turned me on to the nester which has honestly inspired every plan I have for my new little apartment. Thankfully most of the home-decorating blogs I have stumbled upon are full of crafty/thrifty ideas which are perfect for me: a girl on a no-budget/low-budget.
So far I have thrown myself into a myriad of projects including salvaging a dozen busted up and plastic picture frames, painting an old coffee table I found at a garage sale when I was 15 and I am attempting to build a table [with the help of Ana White & my father]—I might also be upholstering a really nasty old couch we have collecting cat hair and dust in our basement.
Anyway, here are a collection of my favorite DIY projects from really awesome blogs:
(As you can see I have a thing for burlap)
My favorite DIY site at the moment is definitely Ana White’s, she’s the sweet little thing who makes EVERYTHING—she teaches you how to make your own furniture for a steal! She’s amazing.
