Reader Projects

A couple of readers have left comments lately with links to some of their DIY projects. I love seeing reader projects and thought I would share them with all of you in case you missed them.

First is Melissa from Love Your Pad. When she saw my DIY marbled paper post she posted a link to a project she recently did using marbled paper. Melissa found a beautiful marbled paper from Paper Mojo and adhered it to the top of an old coffee table and set it under glass.

What a great way to modernize an old, beat-up table. There are so many great papers/fabrics out there that the possibilities for a project like this are endless. You can read more about this project here.

Next, Christina left me a comment on my DIY Upholstered Headboard post with a link to a headboard that she and her husband made using my tutorial. I am so glad to know that my tutorial made enough sense for someone to follow it!

I think the headboard looks great! Also, I get a lot of questions about attaching the foam to the frame but I guess I didn't take a picture of that step, but Christina did. So, hopefully this photo helps clear up any questions that I haven't answered yet.

You can see more of this project here.

Great job, Melissa and Christina, and thanks for sharing your projects with us!

Enjoyed seeing these! My friend Kristen used that same marbled paper in her living room:

I started repainting some campaign-style nightstands this weekend. But I think my next project will be a headboard for my guest room. I have a nailhead headboard in my own bedroom and love it. Would be a great challenge to try a DIY version.

Really enjoy your blog! I landed over here while searching dining room cabinets and you did an amazing job on yours. Love the Imperial Trellis wallpaper bar.
