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?
My poor middle child has pretty much been without a real bedroom since he was born. For the past 2 years, he has been sleeping in the undecorated guest bedroom and I decided it was time to give him a legit space! The only requirements he gave me were that it had GREEN and that it had a TENT. I am thrilled with how the room is coming together. Below are the details on the space and tutorial for the DIY Curtain Rod Tent! (follow along @angelarosehome for more DIY and video tutorials)
What a fun and crazy 8 months this has been since starting @angelarosehome last Spring! I had no idea when I started this account, that I would have 50,000 people interested in my projects and home DIY. It is humbling, and I have loved being able to share what I love and help empower others to love their homes also. Recently, I have been getting a lot of questions about how I have grown, and what tricks and advice I have for other accounts wanting to grow. I wish there was one easy trick, but the truth is that it takes a lot of work, thought, and hours….but I love it!
There aren’t any shortcuts, but here are the 7 things I did to grow my account...and grow it organically (no gimmicks, no buying followers, no follow trains, no follow for follow etc).
I wish I had a huge assortment of tools and a huge gorgeous garage workshop. The truth is, I am using the most basic versions of just a few tools and I mostly work on my garage floor…BUT, I’ve still been able to get by building built-ins, wall moldings, shelves, furniture etc. with just 5 power tools. So here’s a quick list of the ONLY 5 TOOLS YOU REALLY NEED to get going on almost any home improvement or DIY project.
When I first saw the art ledge from Chris Loves Julia, I knew I loved it and needed one. The only problem was, their instructions involved a table saw to cut down one big piece of wood, which I didn’t have. Most people are in the same boat as me, so I decided come up with a way to do long art ledge, but with just a drill. It’s easy, I promise…just 3 pieces of wood! (You can also see this and many other DIY video tutorials @angelarosehome in my story highlights)
I am so excited to share this DIY large wall art tutorial with you! I love art, and large art…but I don’t love the price tag. I came up with a way to make custom DIY large wall art and all for $40 and in a couple hours. I used a wall tapestry from society6, mounted it on a frame, and then built a floating frame around it. Now it’s your turn to build one (make sure you tag me @angelarosehome so I can see your projects and share some of my favorites!) Also, I keep helpful video tutorials saved to my story highlights on my instagram @angelarosehome.
It’s done it’s done. I am so thrilled with how affordable this room turned out for the One Room Challenge. It was my first time participating since I only started my Instagram @angelarosehome account 6 months ago. I had a total blast! With my DIY closet doors, accent wall, and window framing, it was such a labor of love but so worth it. And what I love most about it, is that anyone can do it. I have all the tutorials (including the accent wall) saved to my @angelarosehome Instagram story highlights.
YES! I am so excited about this affordable transformation for the One Room Challenge.
This is an affordable and easy way to transform your gold mirrored closet doors, or any lame closet door…and for only $15!
This week was productive for the One Room Challenge, but there isn’t much to show for it. I had to repaint the wall because it was too dark. I actually ended up going with Essex Green…it’s a gorgeous black green!
I also started planning the closet makeover (tutorial to come next week). Trying to figure out a way to cover up the mirrored closet doors. Here is my original idea.
