These are a few favorite DIY projects I created while living in this rent house. I’ll be moving, so I’ll miss the ones I can’t take with me.
The lid turned kitchen towel holder:
To review some of the projects I’ve done in the past 6-8 months, I walked around the house and took snapshots of them.
The sewing machine table with stripes:
There was the little sewing machine table I painted using Frog Tape. I placed the Frog Tape where I could paint black strips. I’m normally not very accurate when I paint, but this came out great!
I was so pleased that the Frog Tape was strong enough to keep the paint from seeping underneath and ruining my straight lines.
The mason jar lights:
I took the modern light down from the dining room ceiling that was here when I moved in. Then I went to Lowes and found an adapter to put in the ceiling to hang the mason jar farmhouse lights.
I just love the glow of the light coming through the vintage Mason jars.
It is one of my favorite DIY projects to date.
I will be taking the Mason jars with me to the apartment I’m leasing. Maybe I will be able to find a way to replicate this DIY project.
The decoupaged kitchen cabinets:
I’ll miss my decoupaged cabinets that two magazines took notice of. I had such fun seeking out scraps of paper and graphics and gluing them onto the doors.
This kind of light is not for everyone, but I love it.
I like seeing all my pretties on display in my kitchen. As you know, I spray painted the vintage picnic basket red and now use it for storing things in.
Then there’s the old vintage cans I’ve collected.
And the veggie ceramic kitchen canisters I found at a garage sale many years ago. I still recall spotting them and rushing right over to grab them up before anyone else thought to!
I paid $5 for all of them.
The stenciled kitchen cart turned coffee bar:
So that’s a few of my favorite DIy projects I’ve created while I lived in this little blue house.
The coffee bar will go with me of course. It was doomed to the trash when I moved here and I rescued it. Then I stenciled a coffee cup stencil on the doors.
I’ll probably paint it. Likely I’ll get tired of this look and yearn for another. Such is the life of someone who loves to decorate and fix and change things up.
I wonder how many times I’ve moved over the course of my lifetime? Life has a way of changing your plans and making new ones.
And sending you on a different journey than the one you expected.
