These are some ideas I have so far for this month:
I need a headboard for my bedroom. I really like the look and functionality of a tufted headboard. My problem is that my bed is in front of a window, and the only other place for it is on a small wall that does not allow for a night table. If only I could manage to get a queen mattress, and downsize. But then, where would all the sleepy kids that wander down the hallway in the middle of the night fit?
I Love Macramé! I don't know why, but I am totally drawn to it. I almost dedicated a whole month to it for GLWT, so I feel as though I should at least make one item for DIY month. I have the perfect spot for this in my kitchen, and my kids could use another fruit storage space, since they go through so much of it every day! I think I should start a paypal account just to fund the fruit supply for our home!
I have a picture rail or plate rail (is that the name of the thing at the top of a tall wainscoting?) on my dining room. And I have lots of papers that I don't have space for in files and on shelves. I could make these handy photo frame/hidden files and place them around my dining room. Problem solved!
These honeycomb shelves are adorable! My girls could use more space for their little treasures, and I could paint the wood in shades of pink and purple to go with their room. Or maybe a shade of teal for a pop of color.
If ever it is true, now is the time to say....Good Luck With That! For I am one non-handy person. I am not crafty, in fact, crafting makes me stressed and tense and afterwards my jaw hurts from clenching my teeth together. By the end of a craft project my fingertips are blue from the lack of oxygen, because I don't breathe.
Any tips on relaxing during crafts? Besides keeping a bottle of tequila close by?
