How hard could it be?

"How hard could it be?"  This phrase gets me in a lot of trouble.  Ask anyone--I can't back down from a challenge.  So when I see something cool--be it a yummy dish from Food Network, a craft on Pinterest, or a DIY design idea from one of the blogs I follow--I resolve to try it myself.

I blame my parents and teachers.  They always told me I could do anything I set my mind to, so after a while I began to believe it.

Since I'm not working outside of the home this year, I have lots of free time.  Just kidding!  But I have set aside some time to complete some projects for my home.

This little beauty was made with a broken frame, chicken wire, and a staple gun.  I saw it on Pinterest and realized that it would be a perfect project to repurpose a frame we'd broken in the move.  I used some tiny clothespins that I had from another project and dug out some postcards I'd collected from my honeymoon 10 years ago. I intend to collect and display more postcards as our family travels to cool places in the future.

I'm also planning on reupholstering a cool chair Todd and I found in a resale store, making a "pouf" for my bedroom, creating art from my ever-growing paint chip collection, and decorating the awkward space above my TV in the family room.  And watch out friends and family: I intend to make many of your Christmas gifts this year...

Have you done any cool DIY projects lately?  Please share in the comments! You can follow me on Pinterest by clicking the pink-ish "P" button at the top of the sidebar if you want a peek at my future projects.
