Powder Room Makeover – on a Beer Budget

Pull Out Cabinet – Turn a Filler Panel into Storage
A pull out cabinet is a great solution to utilize wasted space in the kitchen.

Crackle Paint Finish – Transformed Ikea Cabinet
Have you ever thought about a crackle paint finish to upcycle an Ikea wall cabinet? Neither have we: this update was a fluke!

At Birdz of a Feather, we’re all about upcycling so when it came time to renovate our small powder room, we wanted to do it as sustainably as possible. Continue reading
Jewelry Storage DIY – Keeping it Tarnish Free
This cabinet upcycle turned into the most amazing jewelry storage DIY because I found a way to keep my bling tarnish free! What’s not to love about tarnish free jewelry?
If we find something in the garbage that inspires us (or even just challenges our common sense to leave it there), we don’t hesitate to try to find another use for it. The worst that can happen is that the project is an epic fail that ends up back in the garage again. But we won’t let that happen on our watch! Continue reading
