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!

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After wanted to add some industrial style letters to her son’s playroom. Jennifer knew she could purchase letters at the craft store, but then she came across Whitney’s free printable and tutorial at Shanty 2 Chic for creating DIY industrial letters. Jackpot! Jessica paired her own faux galvanized metal painting technique and Whitney’s printables to make her large wall letters for a mere $10!

Vintage Airplane Blueprint Art from an Old Drawer

As soon as Anita of Inspired Passions stumbled upon RH Baby & Child’s framed airplane blueprint, she knew it would be perfect for her son’s room. However, she also knew it would be foolish to spend so much on it when she’ll probably redecorate in a year or two. Instead, Anita created her own vintage airplane art using a wood drawer, canvas paper, and leftover quarter round. I love how Anita repurposed the wood from the drawer for her sign!

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!

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After decided to give an outdated picture frame from a swap meet some love and turn it into a piece of vintage, industrial alphabet art for her son’s playroom.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!

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 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!
