Wooden Number Tags–Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Like Yvonne at Stone Gable, do you go an organizing frenzy after Christmas? She whipped the built-ins in her living room into shape by organizing her books in baskets with wooden number labels. Yvonne made those lovely labels herself and shares her technique for transferring the text without a cutting machine. In addition to labeling baskets, you could also hang them on flower pots or vases for a pretty centerpiece, tie them around glass jars for creative storage, or even wrap up some silverware for a unique place setting.

Wood Coffee Table to Tufted Ottoman

Abbie from Five Days Five Ways was ready for a change from the serviceable wood coffee table she had in her living room. She had her heart set on a large tufted ottoman but knew it would come with an equally large price tag. While Abbie says she doesn’t do pricey, she does do DIY and quickly set out on turning a square coffee table from Craigslist into the ottoman of her dreams. I love how Abbie repurposed a table and think her lovely ottoman is the icing on the cake in her gorgeously decorated living room.

Stained Wood Shim Starburst Mirror

I hope you enjoyed revisiting the most popular Pottery Barn projects featured over the past few years here at KOD. Today we are going to go a little starburst mirror crazy with two different DIY versions. The first comes from yours truly! I really love the classic look of these mirrors and decided to join the ranks of DIYers who have made their own. However, like I share at Infarrantly Creative, I think I’m the only crazy person who sanded and stained 150 shims to get the job done! Yikes! Trust me when I say that the end result totally makes it worth it though!

Bright Yellow Pineapple Table Lamp

On a recent visit to the thrift store, Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove found a pineapple gold leaf lamp. She had no problems painting over the finish and searched the internet for inspiration. Horchow delivered with an eye-catching pineapple lamp that was just the inspiration Brandi needed! She spray painted the lamp yellow and added a new shade. Here’s what Brandi has to say about her thrift store lamp makeover: “Yellow suits her so well. I love this lamp with its new look. There’s nothing better than finding used treasures then turning them into something new!”
