I recently decided to put my original matching dining room chairs into storage, and purchased six vintage, mismatched dining room chairs. I lived with them being brown for quite some time, but on a whim, I decided to go for the rustic black farmhouse look that I really wanted on these dining room chairs. I used some black chalk paint and matte polycrylic to get the look I wanted.

I love the look of a topiary but they can be very costly and I am not sure that I can keep one alive inside the home. The space I want to put one doesn’t get a lot of light and I wouldn’t want the plant to die. So, using supplies from the local craft store, I have created a DIY topiary tree with a step by step tutorial.
I have a long narrow space between my dining room wall and our table. I have tried multiple pieces of furniture but nothing has worked, so, I got to thinking about what I could build for free or cheap. The solution?
