DIY Wood BINGO Tray

A collector of vintage board games, Donna from Funky Junk Interiors knew a replica of Pottery Barn’s Bingo sign would fit right in with her “decorating theme.” The question was more of how would Donna put her own unique spin on it. Donna didn’t find her answer until she went digging in her scrap wood pile for inspiration. The result was an artistic vintage-style Bingo card that also doubles as a sturdy wooden tray.

Magazine-lover Samantha from Simply Organized needed a solution for her “magazine hoarding issue.” She found some rolling underbed baskets that would be perfect for wrangling her overflowing pile of magazines and catalogs, but could she DIY? That she did by adding casters to baskets purchased from Michaels. Samantha says, “I love my new magazine baskets! If you have the same hoarding issue, I hope this little organization project inspires you to create your own storage and save a little money.”

Vintage Dog Treat Container

Angie at The Country Chic Cottage was loving the look of a vintage canister to store her dog treats, but, seriously, who spends $89 to store dog treats??? Certainly not Angie, especially when she could get the look for only $2! Angie scoured thrift stores until she found a 1970s canister that was the perfect candidate to be transformed into a Pottery Barn-inspired beauty. All it took was a little paint!

After her daughter decided on a spring theme for her fourth birthday party, Jodi at Meaningful Mama started searching for inspiration. She came across a flower garland from Pottery Barn Kids and quickly realized she could make it herself and even had all the materials on-hand. Woohoo! I love the variety of textures, colors, and patterns Jodi used!

Lamp Makeover a la Pottery Barn

While on a shopping trip in Pottery Barn, Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage found a lamp and shade that she loved. The bad news is they were quite pricey. The good news is Gina is a pro at creating a “cheaper alternative,” like mimicking a $159+ lamp for less than $10 using secondhand finds. Gina’s revamped lamp is just as lovely as her inspiration but is even better since Gina translated words from one of hubby’s love notes for the script. Oohlala!

With the Fourth of July just days away, I wanted to share a couple of projects that Debbie at Mountain Breaths created in honor of the occasion. Debbie replicated a patriotic pillow she saw in Pottery Barn’s catalog using fabric she actually picked up at Wal-mart years ago. What’s cool about Debbie’s pillow cover is that it requires absolutely no sewing. You’ll have to head over to Debbie’s site to read how she did it!

As soon as she saw Pottery Barn Kids’ paper-wrapped bucket, Anna from My Life and Kids knew she could make her own. Anna used new paint cans from the hardware store and simply wrapped them with patterned scrapbook paper using Mod Podge. These are great for toy storage or used as “gift bags” as Anna did for a friend’s baby shower.
