I spent Sunday cutting up my husbands old jeans and turning them into cool little harem pants for the boys. I think worn denim looks much better than new fabric.
I really want to get some DIY projects done before spring arrives - will that ever happen? I have been inspired by the following projects.

I love driftwood lamps. They give a room a nice warm beachy feel - just the right thing in grey-old Germany. The only problem I'll have is getting my hands on the driftwood. Might have to make a 3 1/2 hour trip to the Dutch coast.

Currently I have a huge world map poster in the boys room but I think a painted world map or even wall sticker would look nicer. Less educational value but more style - mmmhhh
Holly over on decor8 blogged about photographer Warren Heath a while ago and I adored the polaroid heart installation. It's a very cool way of displaying family photographs - another project for the boys room.
I think these projects aren't too ambitious for the moment and I'll keep you posted with my progress.
