So, a sweet reader asked last week if I was still planning to share DIY projects. The answer was a big fat, “Yes!” The thing is, last week I had a lot going on. Not only did I launch Teal & Lime Interiors and Teal & Lime Market, but I [...]
As promised from the Wild Lounge Before & After reveal, here is the tutorial for DIY marquee lights. I have never invited anyone else to provide content on Teal & Lime, but Lindsey did such a fabulous job with the write-up and pictures of her [...]
When the announcement came out for the latest installment of the Pinterest Challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The art above the mantel in our family room has been patiently awaiting a little makeover. I loved the colors in the art, but actually preferred it hanging upside down. It was barely noticeable [...]
The most frequently asked question in the Teal & Lime inbox is “what do you use to create your mood boards?” The answer lately is, “nothing special”. Seriously, I have not found a one size fits all magic-mood-board-creator. I used to have an iPad and I was pretty found of an app called MoodBoardPro. I [...]
There is an easy way to add a board and batten treatment without ripping out all your baseboards!
You really only have 3 options for dealing with the baseboards during a board and batten or wainscoting project:
Remove the existing baseboard and replace with a new “baseboard” the same thickness as the battens and usually [...]
Since I am practically begging you to take a moment and vote for Teal & Lime as the Best DIY Blog, the least I could do today is share an awesome DIY project with you!
Remember the last bug party update? Well, I turned the inexpensive [...]
I have a painting tip to share today to help you get an extra smooth finish on trim, woodwork, and furniture. This tip helped me get the finish on our DIY board and batten to match the professionally painted finish on the rest of the trim [...]
Did you know you can make pillow covers without a zipper? Did you know you can make a pillow that has only two side seams?
I have been making my own pillow covers for years. I generally don’t believe in buying pillow covers. You can often make them for significantly less than what they cost [...]
There have been lots of DIY projects floating around for numbered dresser drawers, but most involved painting the numbers on. Although I think the idea is adorable (even more so for a kids room), I did not want to do anything to permanently alter the dresser. Removeable vinyl was the perfect answer. I found this [...]
A twitter friend, @LittleBirdyMe, shared her valentine’s cake in a jar project. I instantly knew this would be the perfect treat for my coworkers. Plus, I have dozens of clean baby food jars screaming for a project like this.
To keep it simple, I picked up a [...]
Just when I thought every clever play on words valentine was taken, I came up with my own. We made some DIY magnets with a “Stuck On You” printable tag for our nanny. The magnets feature some cute fabrics from my stash.
I found a nice little DIY magnet kit at Target, [...]
For the last few years I have had a black thumb, so much so that we had no plants in our house. I had begun to prefer cut flowers, because I know it is not my fault when they die. It is odd because I actually have a degree in Biology and maintained all the [...]
For classroom Valentine’s this year, I wanted my son to have something unique and not-too-girly to share with his friends. I started out planning non-candy Valentine’s, but in the end I found a way to incorporate some sweet stuff. This tutorial will cover both a non-candy version and a candy version.
These candlestick candy jars were so easy to make and are going to be a great centerpiece for my son’s upcoming bug party. I found the mercury glass candlesticks at Target on clearance after the holidays for $6-8 each. I scoped out HomeGoods for weeks to find the perfect jars. Finally, I found some pretty [...]
Disclaimer upfront: I am not an ironing expert. I don’t even like ironing. But, consistent with my 2012 Home Goal to bring services like dry-cleaning home, we just bought a new iron and ironing board.
I am kind of crushing on my new iron. It is a Rowenta Professional. My [...]
