Isn’t it ironic that we design writers are frequently too poh’ to afford any of the high end pieces we write about?! Every time I come across a gorgeous worn wood coffee table, I just enter a state of depression because I know, I just know, that I won’t be able to buy it. Well, based on her latest project, it seems my homegirl (and fellow design writer) Bridgette laughs in the face of hoity toity, overly priced furniture and even punches it in the face. Last weekend, she just up and decided she wanted a new coffee table so she picked up some old shipping pallets from her local recycle center, banged a few nails and ended up with this stunner!
The craziest part? The whole thing cost her $5! Fi’ dollah! If you wanna be like her (I know I do), follow the link below to check out how she did it.
If you’re tired of digging through a jewelry box to find your rings or frustrated with fighting necklace tangles, I think you’ll enjoy being able to organize your bits and baubles on a tidy display wall you can make yourself. Not only does this easy DIY project allow you to see all of your jewelry at once glance so you can see what’s available to you (same idea as the Pinterest shoe collection and fridge triage box), it also does double duty as wall decor! Of course if you aren’t that into the idea of a bunch of bling being too visible on your walls, you can pick a less obvious space like the one I chose – a small sliver behind a door. This DIY will only take you about half an hour, and once you’re done, you won’t believe how good it will feel to have all of your jewelry nice, neat and right at your fingertips.
