Felt Pumpkin Chair Backer

As shared on Infarrantly Creative, I created custom chair backers for my kiddos last year and started a new tradition where they get a special note or treat inside the pouch each day. I mean kids don’t get enough treats at Halloween, right {wink}? Ha! The real point for me though is just witnessing the excitement even one little Hershey kiss can bring. It makes my heart smile, and I cannot wait to continue the tradition this October!

Kitchen-Island-DIY

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic had always wanted a kitchen island but for space reasons decided against it when having her home built. That didn’t mean an island was completely out of the picture for Whitney however. She teamed up with Ana White to design and build this gorgeous wooden kitchen island with casters. Its custom size and versatility make the island a perfect fit for Whitney’s space. Whenever it’s not needed, she can simply roll it away!

She says, “I always looked longingly in the Pottery Barn catalogs and pictured my family around one of these amazing farm house tables.” Finally, Karin decided enough was enough and took matters into her own hands. With the help of her hubby, Karin built her own gorgeous farmhouse table for under $100.

Card Catalog Craft Room Storage

ChiWei from One Dog Woof has always loved the idea of having lots of little drawers to store all those bits and pieces of craft supplies she owns. When a card catalog came up on Craigslist at a reasonable price, ChiWei jumped on it, or rather, had her husband jump on it to ensure she became the proud new owner. ChiWei and her helpful hubby cut the original piece in half to create two consoles, built a new top for one of the pieces, and then gave them a fresh coat of paint. Now instead of one old broken down card catalog, ChiWei has two console tables to hold all of her goodies and plenty of room on top for display!

IKEA Cabinet Mirror Makeover

A few years ago, Maryann from Domestically Speaking took an inexpensive IKEA cabinet and turned it into a beautiful piece for her daughter’s room. I actually had the very same inexpensive IKEA cabinet she transformed and I am seriously blown away. Sadly, my cabinet did not survive four moves and is now long gone, but seeing Maryann’s awesome makeover makes me wish I could get it back!

After scouring Craigslist for a craft table with an art paper roll for her daughter for months, Melanie from It Happens in a Blink finally came across a deal she just couldn’t pass up – an authentic PBK craft table with benches for only $50. The only problem? It was missing the handy dandy paper roll Melanie so desired. Fortunately, she found a quick fix with a closet rod and shares how you can turn any table into an art table!

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic also teamed up with the lovely Ana White to add storage behind her sofa with a PB-inspired console table. Whitney’s new console has the look of an old work bench with a thick, sturdy frame, casters, and distressed finish. Here’s what Whitney has to say about her build: “I love the storage it gives me as well as it’s open feel in the space. Oh… And did I mention $80 to build? Love it even more!”

Apothecary Style Media Console

Today I am going to share two Pottery Barn-inspired consoles built by a couple of very talented ladies, Jen from House of Wood and Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic. First up is Jen, who sought out the assistance of Ana White to build a media console to hold her 50” plasma TV that had been collecting dust in storage. My favorite part is how the beveled apothecary-style door flips down to reveal a cubby that hides the media components. How cool is that?!?
