By now you all know I love projects, but a project isn’t fully complete until you do all the touch up paint! It’s not glamorous, but it’s what makes your project go from a DIY look to a professional look. Whether it’s patching holes, getting that perfectly straight line, or just freshening up marks and scuffs…I’m here to tell you all my touch up paint tricks. PLUS, my favorite ever straight line hack so you can get perfectly straight lines!
Here are 4 simple tricks for touch up painting like a pro!
It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally reveal time for this fireplace! This was such a fun One Room Challenge so let’s show you some good before and afters shall we? (my last One Room Challenge was the Green Room ) I hope you’ve been having fun following along on @angelarosehome . Now let’s admire this fireplace!!!!
Okay, it’s crunch time and there are only 2 weeks left in the One Room Challenge. This fireplace has come a long way, but I have a lot to get done! I need to order all my finishes this week for them to arrive in time. Here are the items left to order:
I finally figured it out guys. This is life changing. I figured out a way to DIY a cement look fireplace for less than $100…and it isn’t a faux finish. All contractors quoted me $2,000 to $3,000 for their finishes, and so I am thrilled with the way this turned out. Okay, now let me help YOU achieve this finish also. And follow along with me @angelarosehome (Don’t you just love the One Room Challenge?)

I’m doing it guys! My last One Room Challenge Green Room was so much fun, so I had to enter again. This One Room Challenge victim?…the nichy 90s fireplace/family room! I live in a Las Vegas 90s home which means one thing, lots of niches and odd cut outs, fake mantels, and texture…and I am someone who craves the simplest and cleanest lines. So, of course, there was no working around this, and it all just had to go. (follow the whole video transformation @angelarosehome in Story Highlights Under “Fireplace Reno”…and see who was living in my attic?)
Here is what the space looked like when I started. Sooooo many niches right? And can you even call that a mantel?
This was a match made in heaven guys. I was wanting a bench seat for this cute corner in the Tent Room…when I came across this IKEA BESTA unit that fit the space perfectly. I knew I wanted a custom look, so with some custom door fronts from Semihandmade…and DIY cushion top…this DIY Ikea Bench Hack may just be my favorite little corner of the house.
Now, let me give you all the details so you can build one too! I’m going to outline for you exactly how to buy IKEA cabinets, add custom doors, and get your own unique look! (follow me @angelarosehome for more DIY and video tutorials)
I know I may be overly excited, but this way to make a barn door is REVOLUTIONARY and the best way ever. The DIY Easy Shiplap Door only cost me $60 and I did it in under an hour. Yes, you read that right. One hour! And, if requires no finishing work of puttying and sanding…win win win. (You can check out more video tutorials, including this project on my instagram page @angelarosehome). Let’s build this DIY barn door now shall we?
