My Favorite Blog

As I mention before in my first post, I always wanted to have my own blog to inspire people to create art through do-it-yourself projects and after a lot of research and experimenting with all kinds of DIY projects, I started my own blog and soon I will create an Etsy shop.

Today I want to talk about one of my favorite blogs of all times Centsational Girl, a blog who inspires me every day to continue looking for different ways to be creative.


The writer Centsational Girl’s blog is Kate Riley; she is a renovator, decorator, and a do-it-yourselfer. I identify with her because our end goal is to bring affordable style to your home.

Kate’s blog is full of DIY projects from how to make a card to how to renovate your full kitchen.
Some of my favorite DIY projects from Centsational Girl are:
• $10 Cabinet Makeover: From an old and ugly looking cabinet to a new and chic cabinet and spending only $10!

DIY Gold Leaf Art: We all have fallen in love with super pricey art pieces that we can’t afford. For this DIY, Kate will create a look-a-like piece or art!

DIY Wood Cutting Boards: I found this DIY project really useful, we all need cutting boards and you can make one by just cutting and sanding a nice piece of wood!

Before and After

We all have those pieces of furniture in our home that require a little of TLC (tender, loving, care). For this redo, I will show you how I restyled an old cart bar I found for only $3 in one of the coolest spots to find treasures in Austin, Texas, Treasure City Thrift.


This project took me less than two days to complete, it was easy and fast! Also, I did it in my apartment, you don’t need a big patio or room to make this project.  Most of the materials I used for this project I already had them but there is the list of the materials and prices. Continue reading


A little bit about me!

Hello, Everyone!

My name is Andrea, I am a 22-year-old public relations student at Texas State University. I’m from Cartagena, Colombia, but I lived in Mexico for eight years. When I was 18 years old I decided to move to Austin, Texas, where I’ve lived for almost 5 years.

I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time now, and I’m excited to start sharing all my ideas and tricks on how to restore something old, organize spaces, and look for awesome thrift finds.

I started creating and crafting with the goal of decorating my home without spending my whole paycheck! Daily Crafts is a blog for anyone who wants to get handy!

Stay tuned every week for new posts and ideas on how to restore something that has lost its sparkle.  It is all about do-it-yourself and share with friends!

Please write any suggestions or ideas you have so I can help you DIY
