Tile Your Backsplash

Transform your kitchen with a new backsplash. This easy (really!) DIY project will add sophistication to your space. Consider small tiles on a mesh backing for the easiest installation.

Create a Custom Shelf

This simple shelf can be made in just a few hours to finish off an entryway, bathroom, or bedroom. You just need a few supplies and basic woodworking skills.

Big Impact with a Little Fabric

If you love your lamp base but the shade needs help, give it a facelift with a modern fabric. Working with a drum shade allows you to use almost any textile; a tapered shade looks best with a small overall print or a solid fabric that doesn’t require a pattern match.

Redo Your Mantel

Mantels can be tricky to decorate. But in an hour or two you can give your mantel a new look. Here a collection of old books is casually stacked, giving the mantel character. Small accessories provide an interesting contrast to the book collection.
