diy with Brittni:

September 2, 2011

Hey there. It's Brittni from papernstitch. This week I've been spending a lot of time indoors, probably because the temperatures are still pretty high here. Florida heat is intense. But anyway, since I have been inside so much these last few days, I've been thinking about all the house projects I just never got around to doing. And now its too late to start new things because we are moving in just a few weeks to a new place. A new state in fact. BUT after we move, I am making a promise to myself to get busy with all of the projects I never got to. So this week's diy roundup is all about home decor...

take the diy projects outdoors and make a hanging garden

revamp a mirror in a different way with another mirror makeover

create your own faux zinc letter decor

or build you own desk from scratch

What's your favorite room in the house to decorate diy-style?

Let me know in the comments below.

  5. Thanks for sharing this DIY info. I am looking myself to do the gardening a little bit. My garden needs some cleaning before i do my magic in there. I am thinking of hiring removalists in Sydney because i have to store some items. Then i think maybe not.
