It’s all here! What TO do, and what NOT to do for the most professional-looking board and batten wall! I now want one in every room in my house :). First of all, board and batten basically just means putting wood/mdf strips on your wall in a pattern or design! I love it because is an affordable way (only$150!) to give a space character, add a focal point, and elevate your space.
Now let’s all build a board and batten wall!
Let’s play a little game. What takes a sheet of plywood, one XL twin mattress pad, and a pair of curtain panels? THIS headboard! I’ve been wanting a headboard for a while now, and finally decided it was time to take matters into my own hands and stop waiting until I could save up for a dream one $$$. And I love how this turned out. Here is the whole tutorial so you can build one too (and it’s NO SEW)!
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 project.
I’m so excited to share my modern barn door tutorial with you! I wanted a barn door, but all the DIY options I found were for rustic barn doors…and I wanted a modern one. So, when I saw a picture on Joanna Gaines’ instagram of this gorgeous door I knew I needed to have it, and that I could make one! So I busted out my pencil and designed a modern barn door for $120. And with this $69 barn door hardware, the whole door total came to under $200!
I hope I can answer alllllll the how-to questions for making large scale engineer prints in this post! Let me get right down to it. This whole project was $70! $3 for each print, and $19 for each frame. I got tons of ideas from Chris Loves Julia’s post. Here’s what I will outline:
- Take and edit your photos (on your phone, no special software)
- How to print (from Staples online)
- How to frame
This is the shelf tutorial you need! I love the look of floating built-in shelves, but most tutorials have shelves that look very bulky and are at least 3 inches thick. I looked and looked for the perfect way to make a THIN 1.5 inch floating shelf, and liked the ideas from Young House Love’s tutorial. So, with a few changes, I gave my thin floating shelves a try in my bathroom (where if I totally messed it up…it wouldn’t matter!), and I LOVE how they turned out!
Here are my step by step instructions. Now go build some shelves!
Would you believe these tiles were stenciled?
Do you have plain boring tile on your floors, fireplace, backsplash, or stairs? So did I…and I decided I was tired of waiting and saving for a big renovation, and I wanted to DO something about it. So for under $100, I STENCILED my bathroom tile floor, and I am in love how it looks!
