Oooh…do I have a treat for you today. I have finally made a video tutorial for my easy envelope pillow covers!
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 [...]
Remember those fun, red-orange pillows I made to add a little pop to the family room? The ones that spurred the Modern Americana design theme? Well, I am over them. I like (notice I did not say love) red, but I just [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The bold grellow stripes and bubbly pattern on these curtains add immediate personality to the nursery. As if the deep teal walls were not intriguing enough, I had to add a big pattern and pop of color. Both curtain panels were made from one fabric shower curtain and a couple yards of my own fabric [...]
Although I did a lot of work cleaning up the craft room, the most remarkable change was the box pleat skirt I made to conceal the under counter storage. I got the idea from my recent box pleat crib skirt project. Previously the open space under the counter [...]
