Painted Stripe Oar Wall Décor

Krista of The Happy Housie turned ordinary clear varnished paddles from a sporting supply store into knock-off versions of the Oar Décor from Pottery Barn Kids as part of revamping her sons’ new shared bedroom space. I am sure it comes as no surprise that paint was all it took to make these paddles come to life. I totally love the bright pops of color against the crisp white planked wall.

Kids Dr. Seuss Bathroom with Wall Mural

Angela from Decorating the Dorchester Way really wanted to decorate her son’s bathroom with the Pottery Barn Kids’ Dr. Seuss bathroom theme, but it was no longer available. Not wanting to dish out the cash for eBay prices, Angela replicated the look with paint and some Target accessories. Angela used a projector for the fish and then free handed the rest of her mural. Pretty stinking impressive! I love how she incorporated lots of cute details from stenciled accessories to the iconic Dr. Seuss hat.

Paint Your Own Chalkboard Frames

Arien from One Krieger Chick came across a chalkboard frame in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and immediately thought, “How easy would that be to make!” As easy as a couple of coats of chalkboard paint – that’s how easy! I love how Arien had her boys write their own names on the frames for a personal touch. Now she has wall art in her living room and pictures of her darling boys to boot!

DIY Twin Bed Fit for a Queen

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic wanted to build a girly bed for her daughter and found just what she was looking for in Ana White’s tall panel headboard. Ana whipped up plans for a twin version with a footboard and side rails that are nice and high to provide plenty of storage space underneath. All that beautiful molding reminds me of a throne! Just like Ana says, this bed certainly is “fit for a queen.”

Valentine’s Envelope Chair Backer for $1

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, Kristen from Down Home Inspiration is in full-on holiday-crafting mode. She loved Pottery Barn Kid’s envelope chair backers, but $26? For felt? Kristen knew she cure couldn’t justify the expense and instead grabbed some quarter sheets of felt and embroidery floss from the craft store and made three adorable chair backers for her kids – for less than a dollar each! Her kids love filling the pouches with sweet little notes to each other!

Camille from Imperfectly Imaginable made her daughter’s birthday dreams come true with this UH-mazing retro kitchen she and her hubs built. This baby has all the bells and whistles – real stove grates, oven shelves, a clock, and even a retro freezer thermometer. And Camille is such a sweetie she has made the project pans available to her readers and supplied links to everything she purchased. What little girl wouldn’t go gaga over this set-up???

Organize Art Supplies in Style with Wall Cubbies

Carla of Blueberry Junkie is in the process of revamping her kids’ playroom, and one of the things she wanted to incorporate was an art area. Carla was challenged with neatly storing and organizing the art supplies without making them out-of-sight and, thus, out-of-mind for her kids. That’s where Ana White’s plans for numbered wall cubbies come in! Carla used scrap pallet wood from her garage to build her own cubbies in just a couple of hours. I love how inviting it is with the paper roll underneath!

North Pole Christmas Sign

Autie from iCandy Handmade got her porch ready for Christmas this year with the addition of a North Pole sign she DIYed. The really fun part for a hoarding, repurposing, outside-the-box thinking girl like myself is that Autie created her sign from a freezer door from her daughter’s play kitchen. I love that rock-what-you-got mentality! And isn’t her sign adorable?
