SUYL: DIY Projects

This week Kelly's 'Show Us Your Life' link up is all about DIY.  Having bought our first home last year Matthew and I are all about the DIY and we have several things planned for weekends, vacation times and future years.  We are saving and sorting and planning up a storm, so I thought I'd share a few things I've found on pinterest that I'd really like to do in our place!  I will do another home tour before long - partly for our lovely inquisitive relatives, and also because things keep changing and I love to share!

So, DIY daydreams.  Here we go!  These are mainly pretty, crafty, cute stuff - there's also plenty of painting/sanding/topsoiling in the plans!

Love this idea for all our old teeshirts - make into canvases for the walls.!

Brickbooks for the garden.

I am addicted to letters in all forms - love this scrapping paper idea.

I can think of so many places I would like a whiteboard.

Love this way of making prints - I desperately want something on the walls of our home gym.

I would like a wreath year round - may be something like this?

I am SO looking forward to this link up - DIY is my addiction at the mo!


  1. I love the idea of wreaths all year! Lights, too.

  2. I've seen those brick books before, but never actually looked it them up close. I really just thought it was a bunch of books on a staircase. But seeing they're actually bricks made to look like books, is finally now making sense to me. Now that I actually get it, I'd love to have a few in our backyard.

    And just letting you know, I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.

If you'd like to work together, or if you'd just like to say hello, my email is:
