You know those extra long lumbar pillows that everyone loves? The ones that are a couple hundred dollars on fancy decor sites? We made one for half the price and the main material may surprise you.

Learning how to reupholster a fabric seat chair is a skill that every DIYer should master. And I’m not just saying that because I have a chair obsession. It’s easy, only takes a few materials, and can really transform a piece of furniture once you know a few tricks. So today I’m sharing a detailed tutorial that breaks down exactly how to reupholster a fabric seat chair.
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Recently, I was organizing my closet and came across a handful of items that could really use a makeover – a pair of sandals, a plain bandana, I even found a water bottle hiding under one on my shelves! It’s amazing what you find when you make an effort to clean out your closet, right?! I set them all aside to paint or dye on another day and continued to organize. BUT as my mind started to wonder away from hanging an endless pile of clothing that had accumulated on the floor (whoops), it hit me that I didn’t need a paint brush (or a bottle of dye) to transform the pieces in my closet. I could just use my Cricut Maker.
So, I partnered with Cricut on this DIY summer accessories post to share how you can do the same with pieces you already have. Click through to see how you can make your own (and grab the free downloads for the patterns I created).
After sharing this guest bedroom / home office makeover, I got a question about the DIY curtain rod. And actually, many people commented about it who came through on the show house tour as well. I hadn’t thought much of sharing how I made it before because I just threw it together last-minute.
But when I was asked about it again, I decided to share a quick tutorial because it is probably the most affordable curtain rod you could possibly have – at under $10 it’s even cheaper than the crappiest version you could buy at a discount store. AND looks 100 times better.
I have to admit, weekends have blurred together with the weekdays recently with no end in sight. BUT that doesn’t mean that I can’t daydream about a few DIYs to try, right?
If you have some spare time this weekend and want to get crafty, here are 6 weekend DIY ideas to get you going.
Time for an Ikea hack!
Admittedly, my home office is more often than not in need of organization, so any chance I get to tame the clutter I’ll take. And because there’s no time like the present, I pulled together a few things from my craft closet to dream up an Ikea hack (that’s actually worth doing imo) to help keep my desk organized and looking cute.
I made the DIY drawer pulls from scratch and the end result is an elevated addition to Ikea’s extremely popular MOPPE mini storage chest (that costs less than $20)! Click through for the tutorial.
Summer cocktails! Here’s a drink that will make you feel like you’re on vacation without the hit to your wallet.
The tart grapefruit paired with chilling cucumber should probably come with a pair of sunglasses, but for now I’ll just take a few grapefruit slices and a cucumber ribbon.
