Here’s a handy list of some things that could, if you’re not perfect, possibly, maybe go wrong while making a wood bed frame. I mean, if it were someone else making the bed. Let’s just agree that these problems didn’t happen to me. And that these are pictures I found online from someone else’s bed making attempt. I know what you’re going to think, “it’s crazy that the random person’s yard and room and bed frame looks just like mine” … I thought the exact same thing. :)
Holy heck … we made a wood bed frame!
Today we’ve got a quick side table before and after for you before you head over to the real business at hand at Jamie’s, the 4th day of Organizing 101: Back to Basics. This is a transformation of a little side table we’ve had sitting outside for a few years. A side table we bought at the same auction we got our frame and couches at a few years ago.
Happy Friday!! How was your week? I feel like I came back to the island from our trip to the US ‘swinging’, so to speak. Just ready to get things in order and become more productive and efficient in everything. And get focused on my personal priorities … which definitely includes learning the ins and outs of our new camera!! So I can take better pictures of our current favorite project, our new coffee table that I made from an old door I pulled out of a dumpster.
We’re blogging without borders here today. If you’ve missed my first few attempts at updating our living room you can get all caught up here, here and here. And today … she’s here … the old door I pulled out of a dumpster on the way to meet friends at the pool one day has transformed into a coffee table!! And here’s how it happened.
Check this out … the monthly review in the first week of the following month. #surprisedmyselfwithmyefficiency July has always been a favorite month of mine … and it proved to be the same on the blog. I started the month begging asking for help as I started to undertake a living room redo. So far, as part of the Blogging without Borders series we have made a floating shelf and started work on DIYing a coffee table. I am reeeally hoping to have that for you at the next update. If this review is old news to you, head over to see what the other gals are up to. We had a bunch of fun with decor on this new floating shelf. Well, I know I did, I hope you did, too. :) From the initial attempt, an early fall mantel and the most recent where we finally brought ‘the girls‘ back and added a pop of color with a spray painted leaf wreath. How to Build a Floating Shelf Tutorial is here! I enjoyed putting together a round-up of 105 ideas for your 4th of July celebration. What a great resource! I was a day late so feel free to pin it for next year. :) And I also made another piece of pallet word art that I adore. It has been the perfect, sun shiny addition to our rooftop pallet bed area. July was also great fun for me as part of the Hometalk Ambassador team. I shared my tips for posting your projects on Hometalk here. And also had a blast with my girlfriends at our DIY pool party with Hometalk ‘swag’ here. Thank you so much Hometalk, and Miriam, for the wonderful opportunity. :) It gave me chance to help my friend Carol learn how to use … continue reading
Good morning! This morning we are on a jet plane, heading for a little vacation and to help our friends celebrate what is sure to be a fun wedding weekend. Congrats Adam and Marisella!! Maybe, while I am not doing anything that can even be somewhat construed as productivity in any way, you will enjoy these inspiring ideas to somehow re-use, re-purpose and re-invent items in your outdoor living spaces. And you can be productive for the both of us, thanks. :)
It’s that time again. The first Monday of the month where we share an easy peasy, super simple, somewhat silly to post about project. And today, my friends, we are going step-by-step into my rooftop pallet bed making process.
