The Trick to Perfect Looking Outlets
All the while they were running new electric and updating old electric and using old outlet holes that have previously been cut and cutting new holes in new drywall.
With all of this comes putting in outlets…the right way. Our friends from The Space Between have come up with an easy way to have clean looking outlets and so much more. Check it out here…
We want to tell you more. It seems so basic, right? However, you know how tricky it can be getting these DIY projects straight and tidy.
My latest endeavor was a simple desk. I thought I would save a TON of money re-creating a desk I saw at IKEA and I couldn’t have been more wrong. During my first attempt, I spent $180 on materials. The IKEA desk was $110. After re-evaluating the project, I returned some of the supplies back to the hardware store and did a little shopping on Amazon. Low and behold, I ended up making the desk for $80 and 2 days worth of work. I do love it, but I wish I had one of Karah’s brilliant tutorials instead of trying it from scratch.

If you want a little inspiration, check out her book “DIY Wood Pallet Projects: 35 Rustic Modern Upcycling Ideas to Personalize Your Space.” She is SO creative and her easy “how-to’s” will save you the grief I experienced with my desk project. I would also recommend perusing her site to see her homes in Aruba, Key West, and Curacao. Check our the house tours and you will fall in love!
