Dollar Tree Home Decor DIY | Easy Home Decor Projects

I have been wanting to redo my laundry room for some time now.  I think the previous owner didn’t use the room to it’s fullest potential.  The room is a nice size and i cannot wait to revamp it, so when I went to Target recently I knew that some of the Valentine decor would be perfect for my laundry room/ new office. I also made a few Dollar Tree DIY projects that will go perfect with the office decor.  Stay tuned to see the laundry room redo (coming very soon!) but for now I want to show you some DIY room decor I made using products from Target and the Dollar Tree:

How to REUPHOLSTER A CHAIR AND BACK CHAIR | hip ‘n creative

It has been one crazy month of getting things knocked off my list!  And I cannot believe that I finally am at a point in my life where I can get back to working on some home renovations!  I have a huge punch list of things we need to get done and I am so super stoked to be getting things underway!

On my previous post you’ll see that we made some really awesome Floating Shelves (come check them out if you haven’t done so)  I absolutely love them and have already decorated them for the Holidays.  I am in the process of making some inexpensive Decor DIYS that I’ll share with you soon but I did want to share with you my reupholstered dining room chairs!  These babies needed a makeover, badly.  I’ve had my dining room for about 12 years and it has been loved, and loved hard.  Although I did not take any before pictures (too embarrassed to share – just imagine 12 years of juice and food spills, and strange stains that appear out of nowhere) I have a pretty awesome video on my youtube channel that may inspire you to reupholster your chairs too!

Full disclosure:  I am not a professional reupholsterer so please if you decide to recreate this project do so with caution!  Some tools we used for this project is dangerous and you can hurt yourself!  With that being said come check out my video where I share a step by step instruction on how we brought life back to our chairs!

And don’t forget, if you decide to recreate this project, please share your work on instagram and tag me @hipncreative! I would love to see your work!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!

DIY Welcome Post

An awesome DIY Welcome Post via hipncreative.wordpress.com

Today I wanted to share a DIY tutorial that is super cute and can be used all year long.  I was inspired by welcome post signs I’ve seen on Pinterest but wanted to add my own twist using materials I already had available.  The only thing I purchased was the 4x4x8 post.  If you do purchase any materials, you will be able to make (2) 4ft. Welcome Posts.  One for you and one to give away. Or you can use the other post to make any number of projects!

Tools and Materials Needed:

  • 4x4x8 wood post (I cut mine down to 4ft high) If you can’t cut it at home your local Home Depot can cut it for you fo’ FREE
  • wood glue
  • 1×12 cut down to 1- 5×5 wood square
  • 1×12 cut down to 2- 6×6 wood square
  • scrap window trim (optional) big enough for the 4×4 post top
  • scrap base molding (optional) big enough for the 4×4 post base
  • white paint (I used some left over paint, hehe) (optional)
  • black spray paint -or any color you choose
  • wall hook
  • caulk and wood filler-optional -I used it to fill any gaps on the trim
  • screws and drill -optional or gorilla glue
  • sand paper

DIRECTIONS

STEP ONE: First thing we did was cut down all our wood pieces that needed to be cut.  I had my husband do the cutting for me, i’m not too skilled at using the saw and didn’t want to hurt myself.
