Cottage Style Toddler Bed

RH Baby & Child inspired toddler bed

It’s hard to say who is more excited about Jen’s latest build over at The House of Wood – Jen who got to “play” with her new table saw or her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter who graduated to a “big girl” bed! Jen teamed up with the lovely Ana White again to build the sweet little cottage style bed that features a gentle curved design and turned legs. I love how the side rails offer all the comfort and security a little one needs and also add to the style of the piece. So pretty!

Reclaimed Wood Wall Shelves

rh inspired wood and metal wall shelves

Laura of The Simple Life and her husband Damon wanted to “finish off” their living room by filling the large blank wall next to their television. Laura found some wood shelves with metal brackets that she thought would be perfect for the space. Well, perfect that is minus the price. Laura did the math, and they were looking at around $700 for three measly shelves. Craziness! Instead, Laura and Damon spent some time in the hardware store devising a plan to get the same look for substantially less. I’d say they did a pretty awesome job!

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After decided to give an outdated picture frame from a swap meet some love and turn it into a piece of vintage, industrial alphabet art for her son’s playroom. With some leftover paint and her own custom printable, Jennifer pulled it off for a whopping $1.79. That’s quite the saving compared to her $329 inspiration! Wowzers!

Marquee Star

Amanda from Burlap and Denim loves the effect of lighting in design. Throw in a vintage-industrial vibe, and the girl is head over heals! That’s what propelled Amanda to create her own marquee star using rather unusual materials. Amanda’s star is not only incredibly less expensive than those offered at some of our favorite designer retailers but also quite a bit bigger!

Metal and Wood Bathroom Shelf

Aly from Entirely Eventful Day wanted a beautiful weathered wood étagère from Restoration Hardware for her master bathroom. The problem? She didn’t have $700 to purchase it. What Aly did have was an old, metal, over-the-toilet shelving system. Aly refabbed the shelf with a fresh coat of glossy white paint and some wood to give it a more substantial and expensive look like her inspiration.

Illuminated “Hello” Sign

Nancy from Owen’s Olivia put her own creative spin on an illuminated arrow sign she saw from RH Baby & Child by making a “hello” sign out of Christmas lights. The beauty of Nancy’s DIY approach (aside from saving some serious dough) is that your sign can say whatever you like. Who wouldn’t want to see his or her name up in lights {wink}?

Vintage Decoupage Map

When Rachel from Maison de Pax saw a vintage map of Paris at Restoration Hardware, she knew exactly what could fill that enormous space above her couch. Rachel used to live in Paris so the artwork held a special meaning for her. However, no matter how deep her love for the city, Rachel still couldn’t spend thousands on the map. Instead she created a replica for less than 1/20th the price, and although it cost less, it certainly looks just as good!

Vintage Chalkboard Plaques

We all have those projects that linger on our to-do lists for weeks, months, and even years. That was the case with these chalkboard plaques made by Melissa from Shabby Love. She had adored them for years, so you know it must have been all the sweeter when Melissa finally made her own collection of little boards out of luan. These would look so cute arranged on the wall together!
