DIY ideas

Another collection of things you should tackle yourself

Staining a coffee table. DO IT.

Wild array of butterflies look like they're still alive, and so much more interesting than a normal butterfly collection

Get the look with a butterfly punch and multicolored paper

We've seen hanging beaded pendants made out of hanging garden baskets, now make a whats-it-called for your bed

Someday I'll redo an old dresser and it will turn out this beautiful (from the Painted Hive, she got this off Craigslist in super crappy shape and turned it into this beauty! Ahhh!)

Painting everything but the chair's seat gives an interesting colorblock effect. From 6th St Design School

More mirror-behind-graphic-overlay. It's love.

If you have a skillsaw this could be a fun DIY message board.

I loooooove the wooden stained boards as pelmets. Rustic touch that turned out beautifully. From Emily Henderson's Secrets from a Stylist.

Use a postcard holder to display postcards from places you've been. When I take trips, from now on, I'm going to mail myself a postcard with highlights of the trip.

Look easy but I suspect they're a bit more difficult than they appear. Buuuut they're beautiful!
