We've been working on a lot of things around the house, here are some of my favorite things we've completed that are so easy to do.
Project 1: We made our headboard out of a 5 panel door purchased at Home Depot (for just $36! Online they were more but when I called and made the order they said it was only $36. Just be sure to request no door hole and no mounting holes when placing your order), put molding around the top and painted it all white. I got the idea HERE on Martha Stewart's website. Martha Stewart's headboard mounting instructions were for a solid wood door which was not in our budget, so we found a solution by using French Cleat Picture Hangers, also found at Home Depot. It worked out great and I love how it looks. So much so that we've decided to replace all our 1969 paper thin doors in our house with 5 panel doors, it will look great. We just have to save up a bit first.
Project 2: Painting the legs of our furniture. While I really wanted to buy some new tapered legs from Uncle Bob's Workshop, I didn't want to fork out $60 + shipping for the 8 legs that needed replacing. I've been wanting to do this for a year, and when I saw this tutorial on Young House Love (my new obsession lately) I became motivated to finally get it done. I'd post the steps here but they have it very thoroughly covered on their site, I even bought the exact same paint and it looks amazing. Much better than the birch they were before, they drew too much attention to themselves. Now these sit quietly and look a lot nicer, too.
One last quick and easy project: curtains made from tablecloths. I needed curtains for our really wide sliding doors and fabric isn't wide enough (I didn't want a seam running down the middle of each curtain panel) nor are regular curtains. After searching on and off for months, I started looking at things like sheets and . . . tablecloths. I bought these from Target, folded the top edge down a couple inches and clipped on some curtain clips I had already from Ikea and done! It was a cinch.
