Home Accents – A DIY Show & Tell Party

I‘m ready for a DIY Show & Tell. How about home accents?!

This Show & Tell is for home accents only. If you have something else DIY or a room transformation, email me pictures or a link and I’ll show it off in it’s own special feature. 🙂

I‘m working on some DIY projects (specifically organization, cleaning and purging) but nothing to share personally. Here are some awesome reader DIY home accents to inspire you. Click the blog links for more details. Thanks ladies! While cleaning out my rooms and closets, I’m inspired to see things in a whole new way!

Christy at Beach Brights – A Before/After Habitat for Humanity Mirror ($15). She turned the mirror over and chalkboard painted the backside just incase she wants to use this as a mirror again one day!
Before & After

Karli at Rockybella – Beautiful DIY Wall Art

Toy organization from You Paid More than Me -antique boxes for $2 and stapled fabric on the bottom and filled them with toys.

Crystal Napkin Rings by Sarah at All Things Crystal:

Misty repurposed old ikea lamps by wrapping the base in a natural fiber twine ($3.99) and replacing with lamp shades from Walmart ($10.00ea).



A cute stool makeover from Mimosa + Mocha



and a file cabinet gets a new look from her sister:

She decided to rehab this file cabinet to use for storing business related papers at her shop. She picked it up for just $7 at a thrift store (unfortunately she can’t find the “before” image).

She painted it with bronze spray paint ($3). Then covered the drawer in fabric cut from pillow cases she purchased for $2 from the Dollar Store and just glued the fabric on. She made sure to smooth out the front with a flat edge (letting it dry overnight) and then w
rapped the fabric around the edges and glued them down the next day for a finished look. Finally, she added in new handles from Walmart ($4) to complete the update.

Bench upholstery from Made by Stephanie:



Rita at Tesoro Fino turns a frame into a serving tray!


and some desert plates and pin cushion tea cups:

Add paper to a boring bookcase like Amber from Two Nuts in a Shell:
