DIY Plantation Shutters and More

December 03, 2014

I’m sharing Tamara’s room because it’s super cute and because she shares how to make your own plantation shutters!:

WHAT. Yes, she made them. I’m totally impressed, it looks so good!

I believe a coat of white can update just about anything and Tyler’s fireplace and built ins are a great example of that:

That mirror is fantastic too!

Of course I can’t leave out a good DIY – Angela shared how to get that popcorn texture off your ceilings:

AND she shares how they finished it off after they were done. Again, not an expensive job, but it takes some patience.

And finally…this is brilliant. Brilliant I tell you! And one of those I put away in the “duh, why didn’t I think of that” category. Tasha shares how she made her own art for cheap and got that canvas texture on it as well:

I’ve been putting off a similar project because I was trying to figure out how to get the canvas look when I was done. AWESOME.
