DIY Kitchen Ideas

My kitchen is the size of a clown car. Still, something happens to me when I see beautiful DIY kitchen ideas. I start to believe that I’m Martha Stewart and with a little craft glue and some inspiration, I can turn my small kitchen into a DIY showplace.

What actually happens is I wind up with my fingers glued together, lace stuck to my eyebrows, and glitter in places glitter should never be. That doesn’t deter me from getting really excited when I see DIY kitchen ideas.  Here are  5 of the most beautiful, coolest kitchen crafts you should make – because I won’t. 🙂

And please, if you manage to make one or more of these beautiful crafts without having the cat covered in Mod Podge, send me a picture. I’d be thrilled.

1. These DIY chalkboard mugs created by Wit & Whistle are so stinking cute, I want to make them and force everyone I know to drink coffee with me. Even toddlers. 🙂

2. Every yard sale I go to (and I go to a bazillion of them every year) almost always has three things in common: damp stuffed animals sitting on the ground, a woman running the show who has smeared make-up from the night before all over her face, and a box full of mismatched eating utensils. How cool would I be if I made these crazy cute crafts from old silverware found on Whimsy Love? The answer is: I would be crazy cool.

3. I don’t have a baby because I’m almost one-hundred years old. But this baby food chandelier from Natural Home & Garden makes me want to be friends with one – just so I could talk them out of their baby food jars.  I could do it, too. Babies are gullible.

4.  I dig word art. The Mostly Food & Crafts blog found a cool online tool and made this awesome Cooking Terms word art photo. If I do it for my kitchen though, I’ll have to add a few words. You know, like “Burn” and “Messy” and “Why Does My Oven Smell Like I Roasted a Gorilla?”

5.  One time, long ago and in a marriage far away, my ex-husband used All Spice in the pot roast he made. “What?” he said bewildered when my gag reflex kicked in at the taste of beef and gingerbread cookies. “Doesn’t All Spice mean it has every spice in it?” That’s not why I divorced him, but it should have been. This DIY wall-mounted magnetic spice rack from Kitchn is awesome. Maybe my next husband will make it for me.

If you love these kitchen crafts, you’re probably going to flip when you learn how to turn your closet into an office. I know this about you. 🙂
