5 Ways to Get This Look: Back Porch Living

back-porch-inspiration-5-ways-numbered

Don’t you love this back porch by designer Cindy Mihuc that was recently featured on House of Turquoise?  It’s gorgeous.  Everything on this porch is purposeful, from the porch swing to the storage bucket drink station.  It’s totally possible to make a comfortable, useable outdoor space like this one–even if you don’t have an actual back porch.  Check out the tutorials and ideas I found online to see five ways that you can get this look for less.

Organize Your Undies with PVC Pipes….What???

I have an obsession with figuring out new ways to organize things.  I have told you before how I am a huge fan of hidden storage.  I am not a huge knick-nack decorator so having organized jars of things on display just isn’t me.  Hence the reason I spent 4 months last year building my studio cabinets which hides everything.  One of the things that bugged me lately was my mess of an underwear drawer.  I counted 85 pairs of underwear.  So basically I could go 3 months without washing undies and be fine.  85 pairs?!?!?  What in the world!?!?

Farmhouse Grain Sieve Light Fixture

Hi there again! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m back to share another project with you. I don’t know about you, but I really love unique lighting that isn’t generic and can’t be found in every home. And because I have an obscene crush with farm related items, I really wanted to make a light out of an aged grain sieve. Problem was, the only grain sieves I could find were either really expensive or way too big. So, I took matters into my own hands and decided to make my own… all for around $20! I am seriously in love with the outcome…

Recover a Lampshade with Arrow Fabric

Recover a lampshade with Spoonflower arrow fabric

Sometimes you just need a change – a small change. Many times I will add new pillows to change up the look of my space, or a throw or maybe a lampshade.  I found this lampshade for $1 two years ago during an after Christmas sale.  I snagged it up knowing I would recover it someday. With this pretty arrow fabric from Spoonflower I revamped the Christmas shade into a colorful spring shade for my spray painted yellow ombre lamp.
