Focal Wall with Upholstered Panel Headboard

While searching for inspiration for her master bedroom makeover, Kayla of Home Coming came across a gorgeous focal wall created by an upholstered panel headboard that extended beyond the edges of the bed. She loved how it made a bold statement in a “classic and clean way.” Kayla worked alongside her husband Justin to create a similar effect in their bedroom by wrapping pieces of MDF with batting and fabric. It only took the couple $115 and a few hours to create this lovely focal point in their room.

Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture was recently inspired to build this industrial steel-frame coffee table using her newly-learned welding skills. Through DIY Elisha was able to save money and make some of her own changes, like using oversized casters, choosing a deeper shade of wood stain, and adding carriage bolts to the tabletop for interest. Elisha says this is her favorite furniture build to date, and I can most definitely see why!

Heather of Setting for Four loves decorating her house with beautiful bowls and plates. Throw in Kate Spade’s “sophisticated yet playful” style, and Heather’s totally smitten! Heather replicated the look of Kate’s Confetti Collection on a plain white bowl using reinforcement stickers and nail polish. The stickers made for perfect circles with zero fuss. While this lovely dish can definitely be year-round, Heather points out that the touch of pink is also perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day.

Whimsical Paper Flower Wall Décor

Mary Kathryn from Mathews Family Happenings was smitten by the wallflowers she had seen on several blogs. She had even come close to buying them a few times but knew she could create them for less. And that she did! Mary Kathryn cut all the little flower shapes from poster board, curled the petals, and then attached them to the wall with putty. They look lovely in her daughter’s nursery and add the perfect touch of whimsy.

How about going glam this Valentine’s Day with sparkly metallics and golden glitter? Rinchen De from High on DIY made this glitzy heart pillow using super fine glitter and Mod Podge. I love the sprinkled effect – like the heart is bursting with love! I can’t think of a better way to take a plain pillow cover from drab to fab!

Shabby Chic Painted Dresser

Lisa from Salt Marsh Cottage fell in love with an eclectic dresser that looked like it had been “crafted from random pieces of reclaimed wood.” Since it was discontinued (and $495!), Lisa recreated the effect with an unfinished pine dresser from IKEA. The unassembled piece made the project a cinch and only cost $35. As Lisa says, this is a great project even if you don’t consider yourself a great painter. Imperfection is part of the beauty, so you really can’t mess it up!

Korrie of the Red Hen Home modified plans from Ana White to build this stunning 72” open buffet for a client. I love how the 4×4 legs give this piece such a substantial look. This baby looks solid! Korrie also added decorative hardware which kicks up the rustic/industrial vibe a notch. What a beautiful build!

Embroidery Hoop Orb Pendant Light

Jessica of Dear Emmeline was inspired by a fellow blogger to create a geometric pendant light with tons of style but not tons of work! Jessica created the orb-shaped frame by simply connecting embroidery hoops. She then fed through a pendant light kit, popped in a filament bulb, and voila! This light fixture looks waaay pricier than the expense of a couple of embroidery hoops!
