Easy DIY Home Decor Ideas | Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! We have made a few changes to our wonderful party. We shortened the name, changed a few rules and we have some new images too. Join us every week as we party and share at the best link party in blog land!

I hope ya’ll enjoy the features that I chose to share this week.

The theme for this week is easy DIY home decor ideas.

DIY kitchen chalkboard door| Live from Julies House | Featured blogger for Thursday Favorite Things

Julie from Live from Julies House shared her chalkboard door DIY with all the items that she used to create a handy menu in her kitchen. Is this not the cutest idea?! I sure love the little basket to collect all the mail or even junky junk pamphlets we think we might need or want. Okay.. wait! I might be the only one who does that. I can’t speak for Julies use on the little basket. You will have to ask her about this clever home hack. 😉

DIY coffee station idea | Interior Frugalista featured at Thursday Favorite ThingsMarie from Interior Frugalista shared a full tutorial on how she created a rustic coffee mug holder from pieces of wooden shutters. For real, for real- Mrs. Marie always blows me away with her creations. I’d love to meet her for coffee one day just to pick her brain. Armed with a saw, drills, power tools, and hammers, she can turn any old piece of junk into something fabulously functionable.

DIY Gumball Machine | featuring Deanniesstash.blogspot.com

Diane from Deanies Stach gave this little gumball machine a dashing makeover and turned into a piece for storage. I love the retro-vintage style that Diane has. Ya’ll know me as being a French country gal at heart, but I have a major crush on this style of decor too. The gumball machine reminds me of one that my Aunt had when I was a little girl. Sometimes it even had gum in it. Ha ha.

featuring DIY placemat ideas covered with maps | from Pillarboxblue.com

Claire from Pillar Box Blue shared a great tutorial to upcycle placemats with a custom look using maps. This tablescape has a little of that retro-vintage feel that I was just saying I have a little crush on. For a while now, maps have been hugely popular in design.

Please head over to these ladies blogs and feel free to Pin from there.

We have a brand new Thursday Favorite Things graphic. So pretty.
