What are you up to this weekend? Any DIYs planned? We’ve been up to our ears in house projects since we moved in at the end of April and I’m hoping this weekend we can actually just relax and not do any house related stuff.
My birthday was a couple of days ago and I was out of town. So I think Jeff and I are going to celebrate this weekend somehow, with something small. Maybe even a little cake (always interested in an excuse for cake)… and hopefully not anything that involves drywall tape. Ha.
Anyway, if you’re in the mood for a weekend project or two, I have a handful of my favorites all rounded up for you. Here are 6 must-try weekend DIY ideas…
Whenever I feel the urge for a little internet shopping spree, I find myself frequently landing on inspiring sites far, far away – in the land down under. It’s no secret that Australia has put out a ton of amazing work, both in the design and art realms – tasteful furniture, stunning ceramics, textiles galore, and an overall aesthetic that I can totally get down with.
Because I feel pretty strongly that you can never have enough pillows in your house, I’m sharing a super simple (and reversible) DIY pillow project today that involves creating your own pattern on fabric.
Almost hard to believe that the mustard pillow in the front was once a blank placemat. Click through to make your own…and see what the color and pattern looks like on the reverse side.
The trees are in full bloom, and inside, houseplants seem like they’re waking up from winter hibernation – the perfect time for propagating. Which is just a fancy way of saying that you can get new plants from the plants you already have…for free! Who wouldn’t want that?!

Getting ready for the weekend, before heading out to Houston for a few days early next week. I love going on trips right after the weekend is over. It’s like a new adventure to start the week.
Anyway, this weekend is Mother’s Day! So I’ve included a couple of gifts ideas for mom on this list of weekend DIYs to try and the rest are for anyone and everything! Click through for all 6 of my DIY picks.
No more are the days of generic stairs clad with waist-high knobby railings or, gasp, completely enclosed staircases. Chip and Joanna (yes, I watch Fixer Upper and am bummed that the show is no more, despite the fact that most of the designs aren’t my style) would be demoing those walls before you had time to say stairwell, I mean, farewell.
The once closed-off or bulky / traditional staircase is slowly being replaced by a sleeker, more sophisticated design. And honestly, I can’t say I hate it. In fact, I actually really love it. Particularly, the wooden stair screen. Sounds a bit chard to picture, but if you’re into open spaces, natural light, and millwork that won’t bore, you might want to consider adding this concept to your “Dream Home” pinboard ASAP.
