    Here we have a show on TV where they teach us how to create stuff and not buying them from stores. They show us how to create great paintings or different shelves that you can make it from a wooden plank wrapped with string and fixed with two supports.
    I will give you an example, you can create a painting from a wooden plank (it depends on you how big you want your painting to be), so you will anoint the plank with glue diluted in water on wich you will put a picture with face down, let it dry and after that, you will add water to it and start to peel it off.
    You will see the image will remain on the wooden plank and look so original, and when you add it on the wall your guests will ask you from where you bought it!

    Now that is a good idea and this is really awesome. It saves money from buying costly paintings ad buy only when we need it. I will try this technique and share it with you guys. Thanks for sharing.

    I think it's a good idea, although I still don't quite know how this is done. It appears as if someone actually painted an elaborate picture on a piece of wood as opposed to gluing something onto it. It looks really nice though, I especially like the saying on it about love making a house a home. It's a beautiful looking piece.

    I am not into crafts, however, I really liked the idea. perhaps, I will give it a try. But I am not sure whether I can reproduce a good art on the wooden plank.
    I never spend big money on home decoration things. Instead of original painting, I will buy art prints, which cost a way too low than the painting.

    I love arts and crafts and this one is a great idea which I would love to try. The painting is lovely and it looks like it is painting right on the wood, very creative. Yes, one can save making our own home decorations and even better having to make them exactly how one would want it. Thank you for sharing this awesome idea.

    That certainly makes me think about the value of art and the whole idea of aesthetics, but I guess that is a whole other story for another day. Seems like a great idea though and I am sure there are lots of examples.

    Even I have seen many TV shows kind of that. It really show some great ideas using which we can make good things from waste. So its kind of making great from waste. Yes there are many things which are not in good shape and we thinks that it is no longer used. But we can use many of them for other purpose. That's what we can learn from such shows. And also internet is full of videos which can teach us how to make best from waste.

    Unfortunately I don't have the necessary skills that I need to get the most out of these types of TV shows (which, by the way, are great :D). It's always something very useful. ;)

    I love DIY projects. Some of those shows are really great. I remember one that used to have a segment called "Trash to Treasure." They had different guests who would come on to show off their creative ideas.

    Pinterest is a great site for finding tons of creative ideas like these. They often have tutorials as well.

    Not all projects are for me, but there are some that are really nice. Some of the artwork turns out surprisingly well for the materials used. You can definitely save some bucks, especially if you get your craft supplies on sale.
