Perfect Fit Wood and Metal Console Table

wood and metal console table

Shayna of The Wood Grain Cottage combined two of her favorite elements, wood and metal, to create the perfect console table for her laundry room. She drew up the plans so the table would fit her narrow laundry room just right and then let her welder hubs go to work on the metal frame. Shayna got the honors of roughing up the thick wood top and finishing both pieces. Here’s what Shayna says about her new table: “I am totally smitten. I walk by just to stare at it. WE made this! A-mazing!”

Transportation Wall Art for Less Than $10

transportation wall art

Krista from While He Was Napping knew paying $69 for one piece of artwork for her son’s room was out of the question, especially when she wanted a whole set of the cute transportation canvases. “What’s a budget-strapped momma to do?” Krista asks. Make her own, of course! Being the resourceful gal she is, Krista even made the stretched canvases herself from picture frames before adding the fabric vehicles. All four canvases cost her less than $10 to create!

Alphabet Wall Art with a Personal Touch

Anita from Inspired Passions first discovered the dreamy decorative world of Pottery Barn thanks to Rachel on Friends, and every since then she’s been hooked! Since Anita lives in the land down under and can’t actually have any of PB’s pretties delivered to her, she turns to DIY to get the same look. Anita made this amazing alphabet canvas for her son’s room using personal pictures and clipart. I love that she incorporated her faith into the pictures to make an awesome looking piece of artwork that is also packed with meaning!

Girls Embroidered Bed Canopy from Curtains

Girls Bed Canopy

Kylie from Stylish Settings started making curtains for her daughter’s bedroom years ago after viewing them in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Then the project got put on hold and soon forgotten. After finding the pieces in a box, Kylie got to work embroidering little birdies, flowers, and butterflies and attaching them to white sheer curtains. Instead of using her panels for a window, Kylie formed a canopy around the head of her daughter’s bed using a bed crown. My daughter would absolutely love this!

$10 Pottery Barn Inspired Wood Clock

Why spend $300 on a wooden clock face when you can make your own for a mere $10?!? Decorate Me Diana turned to her wood stash and a few other basic do-it-yourselfer supplies to create a rustic clock face that rivals those from Pottery Barn. For the numerals, Diana simply printed them from the computer and then used some good old fashion scissors and Mod Podge  to apply them to the clock face – no cutting machine or hand painting required!

Mable at Lilato Laka has been hard at work on her son’s nautical-theme nursery and added to its charm with a rope shelf. Mable simple drilled holes into the corners of a shelf she already had, tied on some sisal rope, and then hung it from robe hooks on the wall. It’s the special little touches like Mable’s shelf that really make a space come together!

Kitchen Tablet Stand (Without Cutting a Piece of Wood!)

All my regular readers know I love a good repurpose and some outside-the-box thinking, which likely explains my excitement over this tablet holder created by Jane of Mamie Jane’s. Jane didn’t have to cut a single piece of wood to create her stand thanks to her mad repurposing skills. She simply glued a Scrabble tile holder to the front of a thrift store cutting board and a child’s wooden triangle block to the back and called it a day! Genius!

It was instant love when Cristina from Remodelando la Casa saw Pottery Barn’s Fourth of July banner so she set out to recreate it using items she had on hand. Cristina cut a strip of fabric into triangles and then used spray paint to create faded stars and stripes. Easy peasy and perfect for upcoming Independence Day celebrations!
