Ayisha from The Pursuit of Handyness had the novelty of visiting Z Gallerie on a trip last year. One of the many items she adored was a a roomy x-base dining table.

“Rustic Yet Refined” X Dining Room Table

When the movers broke her dining room table, Jen from House of Wood’s first thought was to build a new one. She saw a gorgeous X-based table from ZGallerie and hit up her friend Ana White to draw up the plans. Then with a little more help from Ana and the friendly folks at Minwax, Jen gave her freshly built table a “rustic yet refined” Restoration Hardware-inspired finish. Are you drooling yet? Oh, and I think I forgot to mention the lumber was only $85. Just in case you weren’t already sold {Wink}.

Turn a Boring Chandy into a Stylish Orb Chandelier

Were you blown away by the beautiful orb chandelier I shared from Jen at Tatertots and Jello this morning? As promised, tonight Shelley from House of Smith’s stunning light fixture is in the spotlight. Starting with a store-bought chandy, Shelley created the orb effect with fencing wire and gave it a fresh finish with white paint. I love what Shelley has to say about her new entryway light… “She’s definitely large and in charge, but that’s what I LOVE about her! She adds some more drama to the space, and almost acts as an art piece as well as a light fixture!”

Metallic Gold Orb Chandelier

Bloggy buddies Jen from Tatertots and Jello and Shelley from House of Smiths were in agreement that they both wanted to add orb chandeliers to their homes… and that they didn’t want to spend hundreds and even thousands on a store-bought fixture. What are creative, resourceful gals to do? Make their own of course! The lovely ladies collaborated on the materials and basic construction but then put their own unique spins on the chandies. Jen created a larger chandelier with a glamorous metallic gold finish. Talk about fabulous!

Framed Coffee Art

Whenever Casey and Bridget of DIY Playbook get together, coffee is usually part of the equation. So it was only fitting the duo was drawn to a piece of framed coffee art from Z Gallerie. All it took was a little work in Microsoft Publisher and a pot of coffee to create the coffee rings, and Casey and Bridget had their own version for FREE! They framed the prints, which are now welcome additions in their kitchens.

Boston Subway Art

A close friend of Jeannine from The Concrete Cottage loved the Z Gallerie subway art and wanted to give it as a gift to her dad. When she asked if Jeannine could recreate it, she had a small list of requests: make it personalized, make it a bit less distressed, and make it for way cheaper than Z Gallerie’s! Done, done and done! Jeannnie was able to use her Silhouette, some paint, and a bit of chalk to create a one-of-a-kind gift that nearly brought her friend’s dad to tears!

No one would ever guess the origin of the leaves on this metallic tree created by Mrs. Polly Rogers! Surprisingly, the classy silver leaves began as lowly brown toilet paper rolls. Here’s what Polly has to say about her new tree: “It’s a perfect centerpiece for events, parties, weddings, and decor.  It’s easy to make, and your friends will never guess the humble beginnings for your new decor!”

Silver Leaf Wreath

I am loving some shiny silver this holiday season, so Johnnie’s metallic leaf wreath at Saved By Love Creations is right up my alley. Johnnie’s wreath is both stylish and gentle on the wallet, requiring just a few materials from the dollar store and a can of spray paint.
