Tile Chargers and Candleholders

Categories: Crafts, DIY Projects, Fall, Holidays, Tables, ThanksgivingTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

We were walking through Home Depot, and Alberto came across a really pretty terracotta-color porcelain tile. We had been looking for chargers for the holidays and realized that the tiles were perfect for what we were looking to do with our Thanksgiving table…and they were like $1 each! This is one of the easiest projects you can do!

In addition, we wanted to bring some natural elements to the table, so we decided to make our own candle holders….out of old logs.  Read more →

After making the napkins, I wanted to add even more fall colors to our Thanksgiving table. I like table runners because they help us do this while still allowing the beauty of the table to show through. Read more →

Paisley Tufted Bench

Categories: Benches, DIY Projects, FurnitureTags: , , , , , , , , , , Author:

On the same shopping trip that we found the fabric for the accent chair, we also found a very pretty and colorful paisley. Finally! The perfect fabric for the second coffee table frame we bought over the summer! We’ve been wanting more seating space in the spare bedroom, so we decided to make another tufted bench. But this time we wanted to try doing it using traditional tufting techniques and make a deep tuft with 22 buttons.

I was up for a challenge! And well…it was definitely a BIG challenge!  Let’s make this very clear: this type of project was difficult and it’s certainly not for the faint of heart!  (If you do decide to try it, do it with fewer buttons and a smaller surface.)  Read more →

We have this wonderful little accent chair that has been in our dining room for years, but we were getting bored with the way it looked. At the same time, we also wanted to add some color to the room…so, for a while now, we were wondering what to do with it.  Read more →

Tufted Bench

Categories: Benches, DIY Projects, FurnitureTags: , , , , , , , Author:

We found a couple of coffee table frames on a recent visit to a furniture outlet. They’re supposed to look like this, and we could’ve easily “fixed” them by going to the local glass store to get new shelves. However, we thought that the style was kind of boring and not very pretty. So, after seeing a gorgeous cocktail ottoman from Hickory Chair in the October issue of House Beautiful ($3,375!), we decided to make a tufted bench for our bedroom with one of them. (we have a couple of other ideas for the second one, but haven’t decided yet).

At $75 per frame, they were a bit pricey but still a good deal. All we needed to do for the bench was buy some fabric, upholstery buttons and a couple of panels of wood, and we were ready to go.  Read more →
