Little House on the Corner
Little House on the Corner is about all our adventures as first-time homeowners... various DIY projects (including finishing a basement), along with the occasional recipe or crafty project mixed in.

Fun with DIY Mercury Glass
- Published on Sunday, 14 April 2013
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerWhew! It's been a busy few weeks, but I finally found some time to sit down and blog (before I fall asleep on the couch, probably).
This is a project I actually did awhile back, in an effort to dress up my new display shelves in the living room. I'd seen the DIY mercury glass idea all over Pinterest...
Shelf Display #1: DIY Decorative Vase Filler
- Published on Sunday, 24 February 2013
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerA couple weeks ago, I revealed our new (albeit empty) floating shelves in the living room. Well, they're slowly filling up with a combination of DIY projects, travel souvenirs, and yes, even a couple of items that were just bought from the store (gasp). So I thought I'd go through shelf-by-shelf and give...
DIY Pom Pom Bib Necklace

Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerIf the title of my post threw you off a bit, I understand. Usually when I have a DIY project in the works, it has something to do with furniture or other home decor. But this weekend, I expanded my craftiness into the world of wearables for the first time.
Floating Shelf Installation: More Space for More Stuff!
- Published on Monday, 11 February 2013
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerUntil we finish our basement, I'm kind of running out of room on our main floor to display pretty things, which makes me sad. That means there's less opportunity for me to make fun DIY crafts, because I have nowhere to put them when I'm done. This is a real problem, people.
But I recently realized a...
Exploring My Dark Side: Another Side Table Makeover
- Published on Monday, 04 February 2013
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerJust call me butter, 'cause I'm on a roll!
Sorry, I couldn't resist. I'm just feeling pretty good about myself and the long overdue projects I've been tackling lately, after what seems like weeks (if not months) of getting nothing done. Well, nothing fun, anyway.
Last time, I showed you my Goodwill...
Drab-to-Fab Goodwill Furniture Makeover
- Published on Friday, 11 January 2013
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerI can't believe it, but it was already over a year ago that I blogged about finding this little treasure at Goodwill for $30. I didn't expect it to be quite this long before I gave it a makeover, but time really does fly.
In any case, I finally just decided not to do anything too crazy and...
Master Bedroom Makeover Part II: The Reveal
- Published on Sunday, 30 December 2012
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerAwhile back, I showed off the new curtains I made for our bedroom. They're not perfect by any means, but if you had "temporary" paper shades on your windows for 4 years, you'd understand why it was such a big deal.
The other part of the bedroom makeover was a simple bedding change, but I think it made a...
DIY Holiday Decor: Tomato Cage Christmas Trees
- Published on Wednesday, 28 November 2012
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerDespite a hectic Thanksgiving holiday weekend that involved my husband having knee surgery and the care-taking that followed, I somehow managed to find time to decorate for Christmas. I put up the tree and brought out all the usual indoor decor (although some of it remained in the storage tubs because...
Master Bedroom Makeover Part I: Curtain Call
- Published on Monday, 05 November 2012
Authors: Amanda @ Little House on the CornerOk, so it's a little backwards to have the "curtain call" as Part I, but before I do the final reveal, I have to share this project first.
If you've been a regular reader around here over the past few years (just let me flatter myself by thinking that), you might recall that most of our temporary paper...
