It’s here! It’s here! The organized entryway makeover reveal has come at last!
So I showed you yesterday how I went completely overboard with the amount of work I put into this. I mean who knew a 30 square foot space could take five weeks to complete??
Last night I came home through the refinished entryway for the first time and it felt SO. GOOD. That first impression of your home really is everything. It’s clean, it’s organized, it’s friggin’ pretty, and above all it’s not ARMY GREEN.
We’re under an expanding sheet of ice here in Boston but there’s good news — the first day of spring is next week.
I don’t know about you but I’m chomping at the bit for flowers and light scarves and sunny walks and flowers and sandals and flowers and longer days oh and flowers flowers flowers.
While we all wait for the weather to catch up to the calendar (stop rubbing it in, Californians, we know you’re ahead of us), I’ve gathered up 75 modern DIY ideas to make for spring.
There’s drinks and decor and accessories and lots of flowery, planty crafts for us to fawn over. And bonus, the evenings seem longer now with all that extra sunlight so we can squeeze in even more making.

It’s been 92 days since my last copper DIY.
Yes, I keep track of these things.
Never fear, I’m getting us our copper fix today with this DIY copper mirror that is also an IKEA hack, it’s like the perfect combination of crafting goodness.
I’m so stoked to share this project with you, not only because I love how it turned out, but because it means…my entryway makeover with IKEA Stoughton is nearly complete. I’m just finishing up one more project, adding some details, oh yeah and assembling the furniture, then shooting and editing…well anyways it will be ready next week, yay! Read More
WOW, thank you, THANK YOU for your survey feedback. I was overwhelmed by all the positive things you had to say, and by the fact that any of you even took the survey. It means more than I can say that so many of you are following along, coming back for more, and invested enough to take time for this little bloggy. You make blogging fun and I’m internet hugging you all so hard right now.
Ok, let’s dive into the 2017 survey results! I’m nerding out over all your answers. We bloggers like our stats. Like, 64% of you read Idle Hands Awake mostly on a desktop/laptop, which is how I prefer to read blogs too. And 40% of you have been reading for 1-2 years! That makes my heart so happy. But I don’t want to bog you down with all the little details — let’s talk about what YOU like and how it affects the future of the blog. (Spoiler alert: you like DIYs. I like DIYs. There will be more DIYs).
