PVC Wall Planter DIYDaily Interior Design Ideas

00022  6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6f098e8970b 800wi PVC Wall Planter DIY cute things Ideas for DIYs can come from a myriad of different sources: sometimes I make things I want but can’t afford, things I need but can’t find, or in this case, something I can afford and find but that happens to be sold out. Grrrrrr. I wanted to get these really interesting wall planters for the studio living room from West Elm, but they were sold out and therefore unavailable for my decorating purposes. The lack of ready-made wall planters sent me searching for a DIY way to get those green leafy guys up on the wall. So I made a few sketches and recruited Josh to implement the plan. -Laura

Hey guys, Josh here. Laura and I put our heads together for this one. We initially made the planters out of bent acrylic sheets (instead of PVC pipe). They looked awesome! But right when we were about to hang them, the acrylic started cracking open :/ So we had to rethink the material situation. This is what we came up with.

Supplies:
-8-10″ PVC pipe (length depends on how many planter you plan on making) Try going to to your local plumbing supply store and asking if they have a damage pile you can look through. I got our pipe for free! Never hurts to ask.
-wood board (width and length depends on the size of pipe and number of planters you make)
-wood and super glue
-saw tooth picture hanger(s)
-plants/planting soil/planter pebbles

Tools:
-jig saw
-straight edge
-Sharpie
-hand or miter saw
-drill
-clamp

Take your straight edge and Sharpie and make a line straight down the pipe lengthwise. Then do the same on the opposite side (the first cut is cutting the pipe in half lengthwise). Depending on the size of pipe, you may not have to cut all the way through, just cut enough for your planter size. The planters we made are about 8.5″ high (I used an 8″ pipe).

After I cut the pipe in half, I made a cross cut. I had to drill a hole so I could get the jig saw blade started. To make the line for the second cut was a two person job. I measured up 8.5″, then slowly rotated the pipe while Laura held a Sharpie against the pipe, making a line around the circumference. If you don’t have a helping hand, you could clamp the Sharpie onto a table (facing out) and rotate the pipe against it. Or maybe there’s an even easier way that we didn’t think of…

After I had all the halfsies cut out, I spray painted them white to prime them.

The base is comprised of two pieces of wood. I made the back piece 10″ x 12″ and the bottom piece 10″ x 5″. These measurements make the edge stick out about an 1″. You can make it any size your heart desires. After I had the two pieces cut and attached to each other, I traced the centered half pipe, then applied the super glue to the edges and pressed it against the two surfaces. I clamped the half pipe down. Be careful not to clamp too hard, or it will push the edges of the pipe out, and it’ll be all distorted and wonky and dumb looking. After the glue dried, we painted each planter and installed the hangers on the back. Then it was time to plant!

Note: As an afterthought, I decided to round the bottom ledge so it matched the curve of the half pipe. I did it with a jig saw, and it was a bit of a hassle since it was already attached. You may just want to leave the bottom square, but if you do want it curved, then cut it before you attach to the back!

The little tag on the plant usually indicates the amount of light the plant needs. The planters aren’t very big, so take the size into account as well when you go plant shopping. When we planted, I put in a couple of inches of pebbles for drainage, then transplanted the little guys into their new homes.

Try Out This: Wrapping Gifts With Material LaceDaily Interior Design Ideas

Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!Hi guys and gals! It is Mandi here, from Generating Wonderful in the Midwest. Discovering the bestpresent for my inventive close friends is quite the tricky activity. But once I have identified the present, the fun genuinely commences! Giftwrapping! I will be truthful, I neverplace also much thought into present wrapping for Christmas presents, except if it really is for an individual who will appreciate it. It truly is just also much function for an currently active time of year, so I just stick with standard wrapping and a bow. But for my friends who are designers, wedding planners, and artists? They get the good things.

This yr I thought I’d attempt out something specially decadent and wrapped a couple of specific presents with beautiful jewel toned lacefabric and coordinating satin ribbons. It was not the simplest wrapping job I have ever carried out, so I’ll sharesomeideas I figured out along the way.Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!

Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!Tip #one: Use similar colorpaper and lace. This keeps the overlapping layers of lace on the sides of the bundle from drawing also considerably consideration. Otherwise, it can search a bit messy. If you currently have paper you like, deliver a little square of it with you to the fabric retailer. Or, if you currently have scrap pieces of lace on hand, carry individuals with you to buy wrapping paper.

Tip #two: Use straight pins to hold the lace in area. As you may think about, tape does not stick as well properly to lace. In fact, it really does not stick at all. So I wouldn’t advise utilizing tape on the lace layer of wrapping. Instead, where either side of the lace meets, use a straight pin to maintain the fabric with each other till the bow is put into place.

Guidelines #3: Use a broad ribbon for a neater presentation. Make confident the overlaping lace is in line with where the ribbon will be. It is useful, to preserve items looking tidy, to use a wider ribbon for this lace wrapping technique. Soon after the bow has been tied tightly, don’t fail to remember to get rid of the straight pins, so your particular recipient is not stabbed while he or she opens the present! That would make this gift memorable for all the incorrect motives.Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!

Make your gifts a little fancier by wrapping them in lace!My preferred colour combo was the little present with dark fuschia purple paper covered in scorching pink lace with a matching fuscia ribbon. I feel pink and red would be a excellent shade combo to consider also! If you will not like the thought of buying lace fabric from the keep, you may well try seeing if you can uncover some great previous lace dresses or curtains at the thrift store and do a little snip snip to the get proper dimension pieces you need to have.

Pleased present wrapping! -Mandi

10 Best Loft Beds With Desk DesignsDaily Interior Design Ideas

white loft bed with desk 2

If you are looking at designing a new bedroom for your child, but are limited with space, then loftbeds with desks can be the perfect solution. These items are perfect in that they combine so many important features that are required in a bedroom, but do so in a compact manner whilst still providing ample storage space, a place to study, and of course that all important bed.

Layouts And Design.
First, we should look at the layouts and there are numerous options available to you. If we just focus on what lies beneath the bed, then what you will see is that you are able to choose from those that simply have a desk as a study area whilst others include a wardrobe and additional storage space along with the desk. The ladder to access the bed can also be placed on the end in order to create more storage space although it is more common for it to be on the front, but to one side.
For the design, then thistype of loft bed does come in various wood or there is the other option, which is a metal frame. It also has different styles from plain pine, to those that can fit in perfectly with the dreamkids bedroom, or a slightly more grown up look to it for those kids that are starting to move into those teenage years.

Storage.
It is worth mentioning storage again because often this is the one thing that is lacking in a small bedroom. With a loft bed, there is the option of having a wardrobe built in with it either on the front or you can also include it to one end although you do have to remember the depth of the wardrobe if this is your preferred option. Alternatively, you can drop the wardrobe idea and look at a built in cupboard, or a box storage idea depending, once again, on the design you have opted for.
What is clear is that if you are trying to layout a bedroom for a child and there is limited space, then loft beds with desks really are the best possible solution. They provide pretty much everything that you need in one compact piece of furniture and with so many options available, there is no doubt that you will find the ideal piece to fit in with the room.

Consider This: Fabric Lined Dresser DrawersDaily Interior Design Ideas

Try this: Fabric lined dresser drawersIn our recent residence we made the decision to go with largely neutral walls and furniture. I like to think of that selection as a cost-free pass to add as manycolorfulparticulars as we want. Right now- dresserdrawers! Initially I thought about lining the within of our drawers with vintage wallpaper, but I in no way identified the excellent pattern. In the meantime I fell madly in really like with thismaterial store and was hunting for a way to integrate the beautifulpatterns they sell into our area. I ordered a sample pack. And when they arrived, I was stunned by how thin they were—perfect for lining our drawers? Maybe, just possibly. (spoiler: it completely worked out!)

Here’s how we did it:Try this: Fabric lined dresser drawers Supplies: Four distinct materials (or a single for each and every drawer), Tacky Glue, material scissors, modest paintbrush, and Mod Podge. We located these lovely materials at Sweet Llama Supplies on Etsy. one. Take away drawers from dresser. Measure the side of your drawers and reduce your material to the proper size. 2. Cover your drawer surface with Tacky Glue and make certain the glue goes all the way to the edge. 3. Lay your material surface on the glue and make any additional trims necessary.How to seal the edges4. Dip the tiny paintbrush in the Mod Podge and paint the edges of the fabric to seal the edges and avert fraying. If yours is susceptible to fraying, you may want to repeat this step as soon as far more. 5. Enable the glue and Mod Podge to remedy entirely and get pleasure from your new drawers!

A number of ideas: If your drawers are already tight and hard to open this DIY possibly isn’t a excellent match for that furnishings piece. We chose a thin woven material that is almost certainly twice the fat of a regular cotton. Fundamentally- you want some thing that is heavier than cotton, but not as hefty as upholstery fabric. The active pattern helps to hide any glue spots. :)Try this: Fabric lined dresser drawers Try this: Fabric lined dresser drawers Try this: Fabric lined dresser drawers I’m so happy with the ultimate result. In situation you are curious, the fabric does not impact the function of the dresser at all. It truly is nevertheless just as effortless to open and shut drawers, just a minor bit prettier. I am happy we took the danger!

Design Ideas And Practical Uses For Corner Kitchen CabinetsDaily Interior Design Ideas

Want to make the most of your kitchen? Then don’t waste any space. Corner kitchen cabinets are great at that. They can placed in areas that usually remain empty, so-called dead spaces and they can serve a variety of functions. For starters, they add extra storage space to your kitchen. Then there are also other ways in which they can be useful.

Built-in Microwave and TV.

Don’t put the microwave oven on the counter. It takes up a lot of space. Instead, maybe you can integrate it into your corner cabinetdesign and, while you’re at it, maybe you can find some room for a TV in there.

Built-in appliances.

The corner kitchen cabinet is also a great place for built-in appliances such as the oven. It’s easily accessible and has pretty much the perfect dimensions.

Appliance garage.

Hide your small appliances like the coffee maker or the food processor in the corner, behind closed doors.

Glass doors and accent lighting.

Design the corner kitchen cabinet with transparent glass doors and turn it into a sort of displayarea. Don’t forget about the lighting. It would be like a mini-gallery.

Open shelves.

If you don’t want to have corner cabinets that go all the way down to the counter, then you can opt for openshelves. This way you can still use the counter space and you get lots of extra storage.

Corner pantry.

A practical idea can also be to transform one of the corners in your kitchen into an open pantry with corner shelves and cabinets to frame it.

Hidden pantry.

And if you don’t want to have an exposed pantry that everyone can see, you can hide it behind closed doors. You can have a small corner pantry with parallel shelves from the floor all the way yp to the ceiling.

Corner island.

A custom-designed kitchen island can also easily fit in an exterior corner. It can be an extension for the counter and you can design it with castors so you can move it around if you need the space.

Antique cabinet.

The corner cabinet can be an antique and you can use it as an accent piece for the kitchen. A sage green finish like this one would make it stand out.

Corner cooktop.

Move your cooking zone into the corner of the kitchen. You’ll have easy access to the counter spaces adjacent to the corner and it also seems like a nice place for the hood.

Pull-out storage.

If you want to include storage in the corner for your lower cabinets, you should consider pull-out shelves so you don’t have to go through all the trouble of trying to find the item you need in the dark.

Lazy Susans.

Lazy Susans are also an excellent idea for corner kitchen cabinets. They let you browse and take out the item you need even if it’s all the way in the back.

Corner drawers.

When it comes to corner drawers, there are several designs to choose from. This type is nice if you want to preserve the sharp and cohesive design in your kitchen, although there’s not a lot of usable space inside.

Corner sink.

Consider placing the sink in the corner of the kitchen. Make sure you can sit comfortably while using it and plan the rest of the layout around it.

Two sets of windows.

You can also choose to not have wall-mounted cabinets or shelves in the corner and instead to have two sets of windows for better lighting. You can place the sink in that corner.

Pendant lights in the corner.

Draw attention to the corner of the kitchen with an elegantlight fixture. Try suspended pendant lights if you want a dramatic and eye-catching look.

Built-in kitchen hood.

The kitchen hood fits very nicely in the corner of the kitchen and, if you don’t want it exposed, you can hide with a continuous furniture design.

Sometimes a significant renovation is essential.
