Since we’ve moved, I’ve been wanting to decorate my house more and more. It’s still pretty bare, and one spot I’m working on is above the kitchen cabinets.
Be forewarned. Most people show you the “after”, the beautiful transformation, but I’m still in the process of decorating. Given I need more time and money…
My mom was over for the weekend, and brought me over the socker greenhouse from Ikea.
It’s cute, and I really like it, but don’t see myself using it as a greenhouse. Not the green-ist thumb here. So instead, I’m thinking of filling it with some small feux-plants and maybe candles. Any good ideas for it??
Along with this, I added two Twine-Wrapped Bottles to the top of the cabinets.
They were so incredibly easy to make!
All you need is an old wine bottle with the label removed, a hot glue gun with glue sticks, and twine – that’s it.
To remove the label, I just ran the bottle under hot water, peeled and scrubbed. Then I just started with a little hot glue to hold the twine in place. Just wrap around and around, hot gluing it down every so often.

A book I recently received to review. It has a ton of great makeover ideas, as well as DIY project ideas. Some a little more detailed and time-consuming, and others easy like this one.
My next project inspired by this book is going to be a Painted Aged Basket, which I hope to fill with some DIY twine balls. Can’t wait to share that later this month.
