DIY Chair Reupholstery | aka complete chair makeover | by Days of Chalk & Chocolate

This chair upholstery project is so inspirational to me. Honestly, go see the ‘before’ photo, and you know why. There are handy DIY instructions to make this do-able for you and I too. Ahum. For you.



Crochet & Fimo Clay Necklace by Lelo Juweeltjes

Lelo’s blog is one of my new favorites.
Her style is ‘right-on’: contemporary but casual; whimsical but practical.

Last week she shared a wonderful crochet bag (complete with a howto)  and now she’s showcasing her latest necklace. Truly a ‘juweeltje’ which means ‘a darling piece of jewelry’ in Dutch.  Go check out both at her blog.



White Wooden Wreath Wall-art by Little Miss Maggie

Little Miss Maggie is actually rather Maxi. In style that is. Here she features how she spruces up two abominable cabinet doors in romantic artwork.  Another real inspirational blog, with tips and sources.



Piano Bench Re-upholstery by Bleak 2 Unique

The best of this bench is actually on the inside! It is lined / decoupage with sheet music for lovely songs.   Painted white, this bench will fit anywhere in the home.



Fun Crochet Baskets by Donata’s Crafts

Donata loves crochet and you can tell! These adorable baskets are not the only crochet home decoration she’s treating us to at her blog. If you want to learn more, go visit. You won’t be disappointed.



Bunny Silhouette by Fit, Crafty, Stylish an Happy

This Easter bunny makes me happy. Easy craft cutout, instant Easter decoration.

Crochet Granny Square Blanket by Phil’s Wife

What is particularly good about this granny square blanket is that you truly do not need to drag your pattern book along with you take this project on the road. You just begin and cast off when it’s the desired size. Looks good, nay?!

This is where we all learn new DIY tips and pick up great decorating ideas.  And, leave a comment while you are at it.
