This is from a BHG project(s). We all LOVE to turn found objects & turn them into something really beautiful for your home. This is all DIY projects,so it's great for your budget! They have some amazing ideas that many of you are sure to love!

If you decide to give any of these a try,I'd love to see a few photos of your finished work! We all need inspiration & I'm sure that you can really inspire. As for myself,this will be the very 1st time I'm giving this a try...but I will post photos.

I'm going to add more of the Better Homes & Gardens DIY ideas. I hope you enjoy them & I really hope that you try them yourself!
PLEASE add comments,tips & advice,because I know that I'll be needing them.

As I said before,AI'd love to see your pics,either finished or pics of your progress along the way. You'll be helping me & others,plus you can show how your DIY piece is decorated in a room,etc. For the best photos,tips,etc.,I'll be sending a gift certificate for both of my shops,The Shaby Boutique & The Vanity Table as a thank you/prize.

Welcome to The Shabby Boutique

I've recently set up a shop named The Shabby Boutique. It focuses on the more shabby side of vintage finds...chippy,rusty,architectural salvage & industrial. We're adding new items every week. Right now,we have a gorgeous,chippy white corbel,very vintage French beaded flowers,old spools that are perfect for decorating,marquee letters,numbers & much more!!
I also have another shop named The Vanity Table. This shop has just about every type of vintage find you could want! We do combine s/h whenever possible.
If there are any vintage treasures that you'd like to buy from either shop,use the "contact" form & mention "blog". I'll deduct 20% from your toal purchase & refund it via paypal.
