The upcycled dollhouse reveal!
See it at / http://bit.ly/FunkyJunkDollHouseReveal

I was most recently challenged to create a dollhouse from a bookshelf.

Well... one thing led to another. I ended up creating nearly everything INSIDE the house from scratch. I just REALLY wanted it in my style and that's hard to buy. :)

Parents, this is the PERFECT project to do with your kids. It's one that never has to end... you will LOVE this!

Thank you +Porch  and +Wayfair.com for your part in this! It was a blast!

I loved the blog post, and it has inspired us to make our own Barbie house of recycled materials too! Thanks for sharing a great project my whole family can help with. Even boys like to make wooden furniture :-)

Repurposing some common items you may have around the house into a fun and funky DIY wooden LOVE sign for Valentine's Day.

Wouldn't this be a great craft for rustic wedding decor also.  OK, maybe the scissors don't exactly shout "romance" or anything?

Be my rustic valentine
http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2014/02/rustic-hearts-from-salvaged-junk-for-valentines-day.html

Love hearts, but pink isn't your thing? These valentines were made entirely from salvaged materials. String, hydrangeas, bark... anything works! 

They make cute gift tags, hung on walls, or just left out on display. See what I did with mine at:

How to purge like a pro!
Learn how at / http://bit.ly/PurgeLikeAProEbay

Enough was enough! I was bound and determined to win back this part of my home, and create a new paint studio. My junk didn't stand a chance... :)

Purging and organizing is one of the toughest DIYs ever. BUT... the return is SO worth every ounce of effort.

Here's how you can do this too, to any room you desire! All the steps are listed in one post with shocking befores and afters.

Suitcase Dresser - IKEA RAST Hack
I turned a plain IKEA RAST chest into this suitcase dresser, inspired by a piece from World Market.  It's one of my favorite furniture makeovers!
