If you are wondering how to turn those simple looking boring mirrors into something artistic, you need not worry any more. There are some simple steps with the help of which you can transform any simple mirror into an artistic one. OUR EXPERT ADVICE There is no need to throw away those sad-looking mirrors anymore. Just follow these simple steps and jazz it all up. We turned our old round boring one into something really creative. Take a round mirror and mark the centre of the mirror and its circumference on the wall where you want to hang it. You might have to apply a bit of maths here. But do not worry. It is quite simple. You need to divide the circle into 16 sections equally marking each section on the circle with alphabets between A-P (in a clockwise direction). OUR EXPERT ADVICE Don’t worry, it might look a bit complicated but once you mark it all, it is really simple to make. You can either choose to mark them with numbers or alphabets just like we did. Now, using a yardstick, mark a 16-inch vertical line outside point one; a 12-inch line outside point 2 and continue this process for each of the 16 points (alternating between 16 and 12 inches). Now, the outer points must be marked between alphabets a-p in a similar clockwise direction and hammer nails at all these points. OUR EXPERT ADVICE Trust us, it is really fun once you start working on this. Just follow these steps really closely. Now, take the twine and start wrapping around the nails with a knot at the first and the last nail. Beginning with the nail I, you need to wrap the twine around nails K, m, O, a, C, e, G, ending at i. OUR EXPERT ADVICE Once you start tying the twine around the nails, you will see the pattern that you are creating around the nails. It is really fun to watch it shape up. Then, tie a knot at j and wrap the nail around L, n, P, b, D, f, H, ending at j. Now, tie a knot at k and wrap around M, o, A, c, E, g, I, ending at k. Similarly, start with tying a knot at l and wrapping twine around N, p, B, d, F, h, J, ending at l. OUR EXPERT ADVICE This is the perfect way to add a glam effect to the simple decor of your house. It did change the way our drab walls used to look. The next step is to tie the twine around i and then wrap around I, j, J, k and K, e and continue this as you keep wrapping the twine alternatively till to reach i in the clockwise direction. Now, skip I, and wrap it around nails J, j, k and K, and continue wrapping till you reach J again. The final step would be wrapping the twine around all the inner nails completing a circle at I. OUR EXPERT ADVICE And it’s done! Click a picture of what you have created and share it with your friends. We got a lot of queries on how we built this one and we are sure your friends are going to ask you this as well. Now, place the mirror at the circle. Your DIY designer mirror is ready.
Even if your dog enjoys the cosiness of your home, if you have an outside area, he will love spending time outside as well As a shelter or just to rest outside, your dog will need his proper little house, that you can easily build yourself in a few steps. By doing iy yourself, you can make your dog a very unique and customized house and he will love it! What you need: – Jigsaw – Carpenter’s pencil – Seven 1/2 inch exterior grade plywood sheets (4ftx4ft) – Circular saw – Roofing nails – One 1/2 inch long nails – Straight edge – Hammer – Carpenter’s Square or Speed Square – Roofing materials like three-tab composite shingles or rolled roofing – Primer – Exterior latex paint – Caulk and caulking gun – Paintbrush – Eye and hearing protection Start by marking and cutting the rear and front panel of the dog house. Also, don’t forget to think about your dog’s size when making measurements! Then, you’ll need to cut the door. If you want a rectangular shape, take two of the panels and cut off a 1-foot strip on each of them. A 3-foot by 4-foot section will remain from each of the panels after this process. Be careful not to make the door too low as it doesn’t appeal to a dog to enter in the house, 24 inches is a good average height. OUR EXPERT ADVICE We did and we couldn’t understand why our dog didn’t want to go inside his house! Draw two parallel vertical lines for the door width. Finally, cut the door using your jigsaw. OUR EXPERT ADVICEBe very careful with the jigsaw. Take your front panel and build your triangular shape for the roof. Mark a mid-point at the top of this panel, that will be the top of the peak. Put the straight edge on the board: one end on the mid-point mark that you’ve done just before, and the other 20 inches further down the side of the board. Do the same thing on the other side to get your inverted V-shape, and then cut your panel with the circular saw. OUR EXPERT ADVICEThe circular saw is also dangerous so use it carefully. To make the rear panel, use a sheet of plywood. Put your front panel on the top of your rear one and draw the shape all around, as a template. Cut your rear panel using your circular saw. To make the side panels, take two more plywood sheets and cut them in order to make sheets of 20 inches by 48 inches (dog house length). To create nailing surfaces, cut four two-by-fours at 20 inches long. You’ll need to put these on the sides of the panels and to nail them from the other side. OUR EXPERT ADVICETo be honest we were to during this process and it helped a lot. For the roof peaks nailing surfaces, cur four boards at 15 inches each. Nail these boards along the roofline. For the floor nailing surfaces, cut two two-by-fours boards at 29 inches each. Nail them along the front and rear panels bottoms. For the side panels nailing surfaces, on the top and the bottom, cut four two-by-fours each at 36 inches long and nail two on each side panel horizontally. OUR EXPERT ADVICEBe very precise with the measurements, and don’t do like use and be approximative. We had troubles during the process then and had to go back to the previous steps to fix our mistakes. Put the front and rear panel together and also the side panels to create your rectangle. Nail them together with the one 1/2-inch nails. Cut and join the floor by putting the house on the top of a plywood sheet, mark the footprint on the sheet and cut with the circular saw. To cut the roof panels you need to lay one of the plywood panels and make a mark on the board at the right size. Then cut with the circular saw. Do the same on a second plywood board. Nail the two on the top of the house. OUR EXPERT ADVICEYour dog house is taking shape now, if it doesn’t look like a house, then there’s a problem! If the house has gaps, especially the roof, you can fill them with caulk to avoid water to go inside for example. For the finish touches, you can add shingles to the top of the dog house and paint it (don’t forget to prime before!). That will be one happy dog! OUR EXPERT ADVICEOur dog house had quite a few gaps that we had to fill with caulk, and it didn’t look as perfect as on the picture, but our dog was quite happy at the end of the day!

Keep smoothening out any wrinkles that forms and the remaining fabric can be folded towards the inside using some glue. Your quirky, designer lampshade is ready.
