Framed Map Art–Great for Large Walls!

Camille from Chez Moi loved the look of a nine-panel framed map of Paris to put above the couch in her living room, but… she sure didn’t have $1K to blow. Instead, Camille used a 1739 pen-and-ink reproduction that she ordered from Amazon and nine 16 x 20 frames from Target to recreate for a fraction of the cost. Camille says, “Easy, inexpensive, and a great way to fill a large wall!”

Chalkboard Placecards

I always love when I stumble upon something new, so imagine my excitement when I saw these chalkboard placecards Tricia from Simplicity in the South shared at Beneath My Heart. Tricia shares the secret of how she sanded contact paper to create the faux iron finish. These cards can be used as placecards for your Christmas table, labels for your buffet dishes, and tags for your gifts! That’s quite the impressive list for only thirty cents a pop!

Burlap Leaf Pillow

Colleen from Mural Maker and More saw a darling oak leaf pillow floating around Pinterest and pinned it with the intent of hand painting it one day. Instead, she found a felt leaf from the dollar store that was perfect for creating a reverse stencil leaf print on some burlap. In under five minutes, Colleen got a fresh pop of color on her porch and never even broke out the sewing machine.

Nautical Porthole Mirror

Susan from Homeroad says, “Nothing gives me quite the thrill as looking over a new catalog and finding something  I like… Nothing that is, except realizing that I have all the pieces and can make it myself!” So was the story of this nautical mirror that Susan created. I would be pretty psyched too if I were Susan since it’s not like everyone has a weathered nautical piece sitting around. It just goes to show that you never know when those odds and ends from thrift stores and flea markets will come in handy! {wink}
