A Favorite Nightstand Gets a Girly Twist

diy nightstand for a girls room

After building her daughter a beautiful panel bed fit for a princess, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic built two matching nightstands that are every bit as lovely! Whitney loved the design of a nightstand she’d previously built for her son’s room and teamed up with Ana White to put a “girly” spin on the plans. There is no question in my mind why Whitney adores this design so much – hidden storage! Plus, it sure sweetens the deal that they only cost $60 each to build!

Erin from Elizabeth Joan Designs needed some storage for her son’s ever-growing collection of basketballs, footballs and soccer balls. She happened to have an old metal laundry basket in storage and gave it an industrial makeover a la Restoration Hardware. I love how Erin was able to use a little creativity to turn an item she wasn’t using anymore into a functional and decorative storage solution!

“Stash Buster” Easter Bunny Pillow

Nicole from Shabby Beach Nest was floored when she saw the price of a bunny pillow that her daughter wanted to get for Easter – $75!  Nicole says, “I knew I could make this pillow on the cheap, and boy was I right. This pillow cost me a whopping $0.” I love Nicole’s resourcefulness in using the fabric from an old shirt and dress for her pillow. It cost her nothing and repurposed some items from her stash.

Vintage Industrial Wall Letters on a Budget

Angela of blue i style has a major thing for typography and can’t get enough of letters and words in home décor. From the moment Angela decided on a “vintage preppy” theme for her son’s room, she’s had her eye on wood and metal wall letters. She was able to create a knock-off version that really captures the vintage industrial vibe of her original inspiration using paper mache letters, metallic acrylic paint, scrapbook paper and nails. Angela says, “I am pretty proud of how my letters turned out! The total for my three letters rang in at less than $10.00 (about $3 each), and the entire project took me less than an hour.”

Industrial Wood Letters with Metal Trim

I am just loving this knock off from the gals over at Lolly Jane! Kelli wanted to recreate the look of vintage industrial letters for less than $15 PER letter. Yes, that gets pricey! Amazing, she got all the look of wood and metal without using wood and metal. I never would have guessed it, but the “wood” is simply patterned scrapbook paper and the “metal” silver glitter tape. That means scissors are the only tool needed! Nicely done, Ladies!

Jaime of That’s My Letter and Ana White have been working their magic again – but with a new twist! Ana helped Jaime draw up plans for a new bed for her son’s bedroom that features galvanized steel pipes and wood slats. Like Jaime says, it’s a match made in heaven! And she walks you through the entire process step-by-step so you can make a one-of-a-kind bed industrial bed too.

Old Frame to Fabric Message Board

diy message board

When Shauna from Satori Design Living was challenged to turn her home office into a better organized, more functional, and prettier space, she knew a pinboard was a must. Shauna had been wanting a fabric-covered one for years, and it was high time she finally made that dream a reality. Shauna did it on the cheap by repurposing an old art frame she had. With a fresh coat of white paint, touch of gold gilding, and cotton canvas insert, the frame-turned-memo board looks sophisticated and a little glam!
