We'd like to introduce you to an blog we love, House Made Home.  It follows the adventures of Tyesha and her family as they transform their humble abode one DIY project at a time. On a quest to get her home beyond builder's grade and into the custom arena, she's constantly making little tweaks here and there. Tyesha's spot-on style, and inspired creations make her blog one we come back all the time for DIY inspiration.

Here are a few of our favorites from House Made Home:

These gold striped curtain panels look stunning with sunlight shining from behind, and they were made from drop cloths!
