Make yourself a tree branch clothing rack

Tree Rack What about spending a cosy afternoon in the nature? When did you last go for a walk in the woods? Even without a dog you should regularly spend some time outside your four walls ... Go into the woods, get lost, get inspired, take some fresh air and come back home in a really cosy mood. Talking about woods...when you're finding yourself between hundreds of beautiful trees... have you already noticed that every single tree has its own unique shape? Yes true story: It sometimes happens that I'm comparing trees to human beings! Don't laugh - I really like that unusual comparison: There is no human being which has exactly the same look, personality, background story, the same thoughts or feelings...everyone is unique, right? And so are the trees :) It reminds me from time to time that everyone should be happy about his or her uniqueness. (However this post is not supposed to be a how-to-love-yourself-guide- let's get to the point) I will show you my "forest inspiration", a new DIY project: A tree branch clothing rack.
Bits of nature rule the roost! Get ready for this new DiY Interior Project!

Wanna doodle and stay cosy?

Doodle Frames Title Oh you don't know what doodling means? Of course you know! Have you never been proud of your amaaaaaaamazing drawings that came out after a 2-hours phone call? Or when you have to call an administrative officer and you're forced to wait on hold - during 5, 10, 15, 20 or even 30 minutes (Exaggerating? No!) It's difficult to stay cosy then, right? Especially when you spend 15 minutes listening to awful hold music that sounds like an early phonograph. So... printed letters get a face, hair, legs... or beautiful decorative borders appear around the edge of a paper...or flowers grow all over your magazine...or any kind of scribble that seem to make no sense at all..or or or... Doodles may be patterns, shapes, crazy lines. They may be complex or childish. Generally, doodles are produced in an idle moment. I think doodling helps relieve boredom. While doodling you can relax and stay focused, don't you think? Okay, let's switch to the main part of this post.

A DiY to combat spring lethargy?

| Spring cleaning Challenge = full of surprises | 

Wooden Wall Collage Spring is just around the corner and your home is still in hibernation? Really? Well, then it’s time for a spring cleaning challenge. Okay. I know. Decluttering your home isn’t the most interesting and exciting project to do. But I tell you what, you’ll feel happier and calmer afterwards. I don’t know what you feel like, but personally I often feel stressed by a visual chaos. And there is another point: you can find forgotten treasures. Who knows how many precious things are just waiting for you to be rediscovered. So I guess you want to know what I’ve found? Right? Well, I helped my father decluttering the attic of his old house, when suddenly a very big wooden box caught my eye and „wwwooosh“ a new DIY idea was born.Wooden Box | make over Look what happened to it. 

Make your own desk using old wooden pallets

Never underestimate the versatility of old wooden pallets.

  How I came to this DIY furniture project.... It all began with my Mum's search for a very, very narrow desk. Unfortunately, she didn't find the right one. That's why I have done plenty of research on DIY furniture projects. The idea had to be SIMPLE, FEASIBLE and AFFORDABLE... Annnnd... If you also add RECYCLABLE – Pallets are just perfect to fulfill those criteria. You can find pallets in Garden stores or Hardware stores or maybe even your neighbors want to get rid of their pallets. If you find some old ones don't be upset by their dirty look. YES, used pallets are UGLY. But the cool thing is that your furniture (or your desk) made of old pallets has a lot of character! Pallet_Desk6 Voilà, ready to take a look at my DIY tutorial?

Birch wood? Yes!

Do you want to give your home interiors a personal touch? So maybe I've got something for you. Here is a simple DIY idea using birch wood to freshen up your furniture. For this shelving concept I needed a few white shelves at an affordable price and some birch branches, of course.

 DIY | Ikea meets Birch | Impressions, Luxembourgish DIY Blogger So, I went to IKEA... When walking through this store, it is like walking through a forest of ideas and inspirations. Ooh yes, I have to admit that it is a quite dangerous place for me, I always end up buying things I do not really need. Maybe you know what I am talking about and you have a similar feeling? I am sure about that :-)  Bon okay... Back to the shelves: I've bought a few of these LACK floating wall shelves. In white. Their clean and sleek look fits perfectly with the pale birch branches. So take a walk not only through the IKEA store. Take a walk through a REAL forest. It is a perfect place for getting plenty of ideas and inspirations using wood. AND! You will see, after a forest walk you'll feel cosier.  Let's have a look to my tutorial.

DiY | Wood burning

Just another cosy little DIY project.

As wood burning is such a relaxing and cosy thing to do, I decided to make another wood burning (Pyrography) project: Customising a keepsake box.

Do you like these little tiny wooden jewelry boxes as much as I do? Or you’ve probably found one at a flea-market and you'd like to decorate it the way you want it? Then just stay a few minutes and see how easy this is.
