Today’s gift idea is for the little ladies in the house! Jaime from That’s My Letter teamed up with Ana White to build “the cutest little vanity with a drawer and mirror built just the right height for pint-sized girls.” I love all the details like the corbels, stair baluster legs, and crystal knob that make this vanity so sweet and girly. I know my daughter would go gaga over it!

Have a Star Wars aficionado in your life? Melissa from 320 Sycamore created an amazing piece of illuminated Death Star artwork for her Star Wars-loving boys. That’s right… it really lights up! Melissa shows how easy it is to make your own with a piece of particle board, a high-quality print from Staples, and, of course, lights! She says this is the perfect time to tackle this project since Christmas lights are in full supply.

Silent Night Chalkboard Wall Art

Kristen from Inspired Whims loved a “chalkboard-esque” Christmas pillow from Pottery Barn, but couldn’t splurge on it with all the other looming expenses of the holidays. It inspired Kristen’s inner artist, and she decided to recreate the look with an old canvas she had picked up off the side of the road. A little chalkboard paint and some fancy free-handing were all it took!

No-Sew Poinsettia Pillow

Pottery Barn’s poinsettia pillow has been knocked off by many a DIYers. Adrianna from Crafterhours wanted to put her own spin on the project by utilizing fake poinsettia leaves instead of fabric for her flower. They are realistic looking and offer that same velvety texture as the PB original. If sewing isn’t your thing, you can fire up the hot glue gun and add the petals and jingle bells to a pre-existing pillow. Don’t you love when something that easy looks so pretty?!?

Thrift Store Lamp Makeover with Chalk Paint

Jenny from Evolution of Style came across a couple of lamps that both boasted unique architectural bases, distressed finishes… and two hundred dollar price tags! She then came across a lamp base with a similar shape from Goodwill for only $4.99 and knew she could work some magic on it with chalk paint. Jenny layered two colors to create a beautiful weathered effect that also happens to remind me of Restoration Hardware’s delectable finishes.

Sentimental Thanksgiving Dough Bowl Centerpiece

One thing Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict loves about the Thanksgiving season is displaying one of her most prized possessions – the dough bowl she inherited from her grandmother. The bowl serves as the centerpiece of Debbie’s Thanksgiving table each year, and as Debbie says, “This year the old gal is sporting a very stylish look…inspired by Pottery Barn!” Debbie opted for a more natural look, surrounding her birch bark candles with pinecones, acorns, and leaves. I love how Debbie has been able to incorporate this sentimental piece into her seasonal décor!
