Need some input

06 April 2010

Hey ya'll, I am hoping you could help me. 
I want to keep offering as many tutorials for around the house as I can but am curious about what you would like to see most.  And I could use the inspiration.  I would like to hear what you want plans or ideas for?  What do you need help with around your house?  What is an item you would like to see reused?  

I really want to hear what you think!! 

Do you need storage solutions? 
Do you need seating?
Do you have an extra dining table you want to re-purpose?

Please be specific, if you have an item you would like to see made that you have a link to, please include the link.

Obviously I can't do it all, but I would love your input.  And will consider all your input!

We are expecting our first baby... I would LOVE if you had a cheaper idea for seating that still looked classy and without needing to spend thousands. I love the one from the pottery barn:


Not sure if this qualifies under your blog, I am a newer reader, but thought I would throw it out there.

I would like to know how to make drum chandelier shades. But really anything I love to read all the how to posts.

I'm in need of help with storage, my dining room table is a catch all, my guest bed is a catch all, our office desk is a catch all, so storage ideas that still looks classy, I don't want that storage/catch all look ya know?

I would love to see some ideas for beefing up some plain, boring kitchen stools. I have searched the net and have not found anything great. Thanks, Julie

I've started looking for creative storage solutions for all my son's toys...his baby brother is coming in August and at the moment my oldest's toys have taken over what will be the nursery! There has to be a good way to hold it all!

Hi! I would LOVE some DIY info on how to fix filthy, cracking, horribly done tile floors without spending the big bucks! We purchased a forclosure a year and a half ago, and we're still fixing and repairing! The tile, though has GOT to be fixed!

Thanks for the awesome tutorials! Keep 'em coming!

I recently lucked into *FREE* shutter doors. I love them, but have no idea what to do with them. Any help would be great!

Also, I second (or third) the ideas for storage; with 3 kids I def. need more storage.

daperfectmix April 6, 2010 at 10:37 AM  

i vote for storage as well. my closet is a mess of clutter. i need help organizing and finding a place for everything.

Maureen April 6, 2010 at 11:11 AM  

Reupholstering chairs. I love seeing all these projects on the web where a chair is taken from sad to beautiful but I don't know how to do it myself!

Laura April 6, 2010 at 12:15 PM  

I love your blog and think that you do a great job...I always love to see the way people organize things with unexpected solutions (like baby supplies, kitchen essentials) that make a house pretty, I also love seeing kitchen ideas, i feel like that is the hardest room to "decorate" because there is so much that you have to have, I also just love seeing your inspiration photos and ideas...you do great!

I would love to find out the quickest and easiest way to strip furniture and then how to paint it so that it looks like it's been professionally done. And I'm always up for more storage ideas, we have no attic...ugh!

I need some suggestions of things that I can put on my wall above my headboard in the master bedroom that wouldn't matter if it fell on us in an earthquake :)

Kasey April 6, 2010 at 1:07 PM  

Decoration & Such! I LOVE seeing how you can dyi things that just make the house a home!! :)

~Melissa~ April 6, 2010 at 1:12 PM  

I just discovered this fantastic old barn door this weekend and I would love some advice & guidance and what/how to work with it. My first thought has been to make a headboard for our master bedroom, or (if it's too tall) maybe just make it a big piece of art. I've never done a project like this so I'm really flying blind... but I'm so excited! lol

Here a link to the post with pics: http://lifeinthevalleyofthesun.blogspot.com/2010/04/fantastic-old-barn-door-now-what.html

I'd like to know how to re-do furniture too, at least the painting aspects of it. I always get brush marks and I don't know how to avoid that.

Currently, I have 2 extra dining tables. Mostly i just want to get rid of them but re-purposing them would be great if I could think of something.

Where do I start and what can't you post?!?! 8P I love to see a post on how to tile a back splash. let's start with that. thanks.

Erin April 6, 2010 at 8:35 PM  

I would love some help with walls, fixing a crack from the pointed vault ceiling down to door way (stress crack in drywall/paint). I would love to see the best way to fill/cover holes left by anchors (drywall) and how to fix screw head pop thru's in drywall. how to update a bar/dressing room type light fixture in bathroom.

tia! keep up the great work!

Cat April 6, 2010 at 9:09 PM  

I'm in need of seeing items repurposed that can serve as storage. I'm trying desperately to get our family of 8 better organized so if a decorative item doesn't serve a purpose beyond just looking pretty I can't use it.

Katie April 6, 2010 at 10:09 PM  

I second the closet organization (built-ins for kids closets with high and low rods so they can reach them) and think it would be awesome to have a tutorial on how to make floating shelves out of old doors. We're going to replace all of our old flat doors (no trim or paneling on them AT ALL) and it just seems like they should easily turn into floating shelves for the walls since they are hollow on the inside. How else could I use them to decorate and organize around the house?

We have some horrible texturing on the walls in our house. If you know how to fix them, I would love to know! It looks like it was done by the previous homeowners or maybe a really inexperienced handy man.

Also, I purchased some buffet doors (the ones with wood slats that look kind of like shutters) last weekend at a garage sale. I know they can become something great, I'm just not sure yet what that something is.

I have a big wood wall unit that housed our big screen TV. We no longer have the big screen as we have updated to the flat screen. SO what do we do with it now? It is very nice very expensive and has storage that I want to keep. Any Ideas? Right now we have put a table in the middle and use it like a desk.

I have been trying to dream up ways to make a fold-away craft table that opens out of a cupboard. I have an old coffee table whose top i could use, but I'm not sure how to go about attaching it, hinging it, etc. I saw this idea and this is almost what I want, except I think the workspace should be bigger. http://www.sauder.com/furniture/product.asp?p=473
i do like that the table ends up poking lengthwise into the room, so you could sit alongside it and sew with your fabric going down the other side (as opposed to the hinges being on the long end and just sitting facing into the bookcase like a secretary desk). This should be easy but i have no skills and am afraid of power saws...
