DIY Reupholstery Projects
I have been noticing more and more people tackling DIY reupholstery projects. Reupholstering isn’；t as difficult as it seems in fact， with a little know how and the right tools， it’；s actually fairly simple. I have rounded up a few projects from my blogger buddies as well as our own.

This was my first upholstery project below. Not only was it my first upholstery projectpersonalized fathers day gifts， it was the first time I sawzalled a couch in half. It will probably be my only time as well. ha
Brittany at Pretty Handy Girl has a fabulous tutorial on how to reupholster a bench cushion.
Vanessa at The Picket Fence shares how to create a drop cloth slipcover for a dining room chair.
A few months ago I shared a tutorial on how I reupholstered my mom’；s dining room chairs.
A couple weeks ago I shared how to reupholster a couch the “；no sew”； way.
I prefer to use a power staple gun with 1/4″； staples for our projects. Although， a heavy duty staple gun would likely work for many upholstery projects. Most of these projects can be completed in a weekend， if not an afternoon. I am not sure if I have any DIY reupholstery projects in the near future but you never know!

Meghan’s “something blue” may have given aquamarine a major publicity boost, but this precious gem, whose name is derived from the Latin words for sea and water, has long been a favorite for not only newlyweds, but also sailors and fishermen, who historically looked to the stone to provide safe passage over stormy seas. So whether you’re planning a wedding or just daydreaming of a relaxing oceanside getaway, read on to discover five unique ways to incorporate aquamarine into your jewelry rotation today.
