Decorative AND Functional Wall Cubbies

Cubby-Organizer-Knock-off-Pottery-Barn-Inspired_wm.jpg

You may remember the DIY potting bench I shared a few weeks ago that marked Susan from Between Naps on the Porch’s debut in the world of woodworking. Well, Susan is back with another build – a cubby organizer that she built for her office following plans from Ana White. Susan encountered a few bumps along the way and shares everything she learned for those of you who want to build your own. With a savings of over $100 from the Pottery Barn inspiration, Susan says she can “see why this building stuff is so addictive!”

Turn an Old Window into a Character-Rich Mirror

Carissa of Carissa Miss shares at Country Chic Paint how she turned a couple of old windows into beautiful paned wall mirrors. It was as simple as giving the windows a quick coat of paint and wax and then adding the mirrors, which were Carissa’s only expense. Like Carissa, I love the character of the old window, especially that rusted latch!

Easter Bunny Banner That’s a Steal!

Bren of Bren Did created her own Easter bunny banner using printed cardstock, white grosgrain ribbon, and minky faux fur trim. It is an easy and adorable project– all for the bargain price of $5.30. The great news is that you can multiple your Easter décor at a bargain price, but be careful… Bren warns that these garlands multiply like rabbits. She went a little bunny crazy and made four different variations!

Upcycled Light Up Star Wall Décor

Ya’ll know I am a sucker for an upcycle project, so it’s no wonder I totally love this DIY from Morena of Morena’s Corner. Morena had been trying to figure out how to recreate a  light up star from Pottery Barn Kids, and the answer came in an unlikely form – a Valentine’s candy box. Once Morena got that star-shaped box from her mom, she knew she finally had the supplies she needed to make her own wall décor. What better excuse to wolf down a box of chocolates {Wink}?

With a little elbow grease and determination, Kristen from Down Home Inspiration made this gorgeous rope knot lamp that she simply can’t get enough of. And how can you blame her? It is every bit as lovely as her Pottery Barn inspiration but only cost $25 to make. Kristen says, “Wanna make one of your own?  It’s not anywhere near as challenging as you might think.  In fact, I made mine in an afternoon and was basking in it’s glow by that evening.”

“Happy Easter” Burlap Bunny Banner

CONFESSIONS-OF-A-PLATE-ADDICT-Pottery-Barn-Inspired-Bunny-Banner2a.jpg

Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict has been on a knock-off roll this spring and added an adorable bunny banner to her collection of PB-inspired Easter décor. Debbie substituted budget-friendly burlap for linen and kept thing simple by using Heat n’ Bond to adhere the bunny silhouette. The only sewing required is a simple straight stitch, or you could use fusible tape or even hot glue to make it a no-sew project.

Jaime from That’s My Letter made these adorable caddies from scrap wood and leftover paint. The smaller ones she created for Easter baskets and egg hunts. Her design is based loosely on Ana White’s toolbox plans. I love these and can seriously think of a million uses. Craft supplies, magazines,  diapers, toys…
