A recent client was all about the DIY so I was excited to put together a kitchen design that really showcased her (and her hubby's!) renovation skills. These DIY projects feature tutorials from some other awesome bloggers and the links can be found below.
Drop Cloth Curtains -- These curtains amazing! They don't require any sewing and they are a huge bargain as they are made with inexpensive drop cloths. If you are aiming for a less-rustic look, you could quickly hem the edges!
Subway Tile Backsplash -- The images in this tutorial are stunning and I love how the dark grout contrasts so beautifully with the white tile.
Coffee Cup Holder -- Keep your mugs within easy reach with this pallet inspired piece.
Jute Placemats -- The only items you will need to make these Pottery Barn inspired jute placemats are 3/8" jute and a hot glue gun. This is the perfect project to complete in an afternoon and then use for a dinner party!
Dresser turned Kitchen Island -- What a genius idea this island is! Just hit up your local thrift store or check craigslist and then turn a forlorn dresser into a beauty like this one!
Here is another great example of this idea.
*Note: I changed the color of the piece shown on the board using photoshop in order to match the client's design and color scheme.
Husky Farmhouse Table -- Here is a great tutorial for a table nearly identical to the one pictured.
