Ooooh, she's crafty!

You guys know I've become something of a DIY'er with all of our house projects, and I've sure learned a lot so far. I now know how to sand, prime and paint kitchen cabinets and doors, all doors throughout a house, along with the trim, the proper way to tape off a room and paint, how to paint a focal point wall without bleeds, how to hang a gallery wall....
and I'm sure there will be a ton more to learn.

But, for now, I thought I'd highlight some of the cool projects and crafts that I've seen on Pinterest and really want to try my hand at (at some point).

I'd love to have something like this for our basement, as you go down the stairs:

This would be super cute for the holidays or for Valentine's Day for the front door (or even against a mirror or entry table):

Another "something" for when we re-do the basement, as something fun for blankets:

I think this would be adorable (either with a picture of us, or another picture) in a room that had fewer windows. My neighbor actually has a spare window frame/pane in her backyard and every time I pass by, I want to take it and use it to make something crafty like this:

I'd love to be able to make some kind of personalized art work for our guest bedroom or even a nursery one day, like this:

These would be adorable for the holidays, and I have a ton of wine glasses at home:

These would be fun for a gallery wall, or a kid's room with their name:

Obviously, there are tons and tons of other things I want to do, but some of these seem relatively easy to do. Maybe I'll give one or two a whirl!

What kinds of crafty things have you been wanting to try and DIY?

  3. Oh, I love that blanket ladder! That would fit in so well in my living room. I'm also digging anything that involves an old window frame. Those are my favorites!

  8. Cute ideas! Love the blanket ladder and window picture frame. i'm not very crafty and don't trust myself with big projects but I did manage to put together a nice photo gallery wall last year. I want to attempt to do some crafty landscaping this year ;-)
