"I hung pieces of old wood around the kitchen to give it a old distressed barn feel. I would love to distress and ding up the cabinets but my husband would definitely kill me, so I’m just going to stick to the wood pieces."
No one would ever believe that these curtains cost around $18, including hardware. Michael from Inspired by Charm found this cheery fabric on clearance and hung it using pieces of chain link hooked onto oversized nails.
Do you remember IKEA's colorful kitchen backsplashes from a few seasons ago? What looked at the time to be elaborate tile or mosaic patterns was actually just IKEA fabric hung behind plexiglass! Since then this idea has popped up around the internet as one DIY backsplash solution for rental kitchens.
DIY - Laundry Help! Shirts & slacks come out of the dryer & get hung immediately & sprayed w/ homemade febreeze/downy (fewer wrinkles). Also, suit jackets, clothes worn for an hour (e.g. church) - hang & spray those too! Less washing, less ironing = happy mom! It is a piece of pre-made deck/patio railing from Home Depot - Hubby cut & hung it for me.
Love this idea for putting multiple hooks on an entranceway wall for hanging coats and umbrellas. Also smart: the storage bench is a narrow bookshelf turned sideways, with a cushion cover. You can even add casters.
