2 DIY Lightbox Headboard

Our next project e-lesson that we filmed last fall for Be Makeful is this DIY Lightbox Headboard. A spin off the regular lightbox, and which makes for a fun weekend project!  Earl did a really nice job translating the traditional lightbox into a headboard and it's super-easy to make!  We picked up most of the supplies at our local hardware store and even made our own letters!  You can learn how to make one yourself at our new e-lessons at Be Makeful.  Check it out below or click HERE for a link to the e-lesson preview!

0 Sneak Peek | Inside Out Magazine - May Issue

Inside Out Magazine's May issue comes out this Thursday and we're excited to share a sneak peek narrated by their Social and Senior Editor, Matilda Duffecy.  Lots of fun graphics and movie vibes! We'll let Matilda take it away:

"This month, we have a brilliant issue packed with renovation inspiration, expert advice and wishlist buys. In fact, this issue is a bathroom special, featuring 5 fresh makeovers. They really are beautiful spaces.
Our cover home is a true labour of love. The family who lives here have been working on the home for over nine years! It's the perfect representation of how you can weave your own stories throughout a renovation. And that plunge pool looks like a lot of fun! The home was styled by Jane Frosh and photographed by Derek Swalwell.

2 DIY | Be Makeful E-Lessons + Free Tote Bag + Bandana Tutorials!

Earlier last fall you may have heard a few ramblings on our social channels about us filming in our home with the Be Makeful team out of Toronto creating some fun DIY projects on video as e-lessons.  Today, we're excited to share with you their site (bemakeful.com) and three of our e-lessons that we filmed then. 

We'd like to introduce you to our three e-lessons, a tote bag and bandana (seen here), a lightbox headboard, and 3 small projects to make for the bedroom (a floor cushion made out of a couple of throw rugs, a faux sheepskin rug and a lino-block duvet cover).

Just in time for Mother's Day, we are also excited to offer a free promo code to access our e-lesson on making this "RAD" tote bag, as well as your very own personalized bandana(Get the promo code at the bottom of this post).
