Is there a little child in your life that deserves a Homemade Play Kitchen? I haven’t seen a child, yet, that doesn’t love pretending in a play kitchen. No home with a child should be without one. There is something very inspiring to see an old piece of furniture turned into something unique and useful! As for me, I am all about repurposing furniture. My kids are too old for a play kitchen now, but I do have a granddaughter that would LOVE this! I see these types of TV cabinets for sale in thrift stores quite often.
This Homemade Play Kitchen, made out of an old TV cabinet, is absolutely adorable! The red gingham valance gives it just the right touch. Feel free to go check out where this Homemade Play Kitchen was made at Giggleberry Creations! The inside of the refrigerator even has shelves in the door. Super cool! If you are inspired by this, get the detailed instructions on how to make one of your own!

I found this clever lamp project over at Casa De Colorir and immediately knew it was my next project. (fly on over to check out more pics) Although the directions for DIY Firefly Lamp are in Spanish, the craft itself is pretty simple. This is a great recycle project that provides really cool lighting! You're going to take a tin can (the coffee tins with plastic lids are perfect), remove the label, and use a Sharpie to map out where you want to drill your holes. It can be completely random or you can create a pattern. After drilling your holes, spray paint it to match your room's decor, or just leave it the way it is for a more industrial feel. Fill the can with flashing Christmas lights and let the cord hang out of the back of the lid. If you use indoor/outdoor lights, this would make some amazing back porch lighting! DIY Firefly Lamp is a low cost project and it is, oh so easy! … [Read More...]
