Paint Your Own Black and White Abstract Wall Art


After spending months slowly unpacking boxes in her new home, Sarah from Oh Sarah O! knew it was time to address the naked walls. She fell in love with abstract black and white paintings from West Elm, but by the time Sarah had the cash to purchase them, most of the designs were sold out. Sarah decided to grab a canvas and some paintbrushes from her stash and create her own DIY version of the abstract artwork. It’s amazing how similar it looks to the original!

Easy Pom-Pom Tassel Pillow


Melissa from The Inspired Room isn’t ashamed to admit that she’s got a major crush on all things Anthropologie! When she saw a fun pom-pom pillow there, Melissa knew she wanted one AND that she could make it for less. Melissa just used a pillow cover she already had and stitched on some pom-pom trim. Super simple and super cute!

What do you do when you want a $2,000 bed but don’t have $2,000 to spend on a bed? Build your own for around $350 instead! Camille from Imperfectly Imaginable and her husband modified Ana White’s platform bed plans to replicate the look of an upholstered bed with nailhead trim that they loved from Restoration Hardware. Camille walks you through their entire build and even how she achieved that signature Restoration Hardware antiqued finish.

Decorative Gold Spheres from Clay


Decorative spheres are a fun way to add interest to a bookshelf or tabletop. Shelley from Crazy Wonderful saw some from West Elm that she thought were pretty stinkin’ cool – just not at $70 for a pair! Shelley instead sculpted her own from clay and finished them in gold  just like her inspiration. I love how metallic spray paint can give an inexpensive material like clay such a beautiful, lustrous finish. You’d never know they aren’t real metal!

Old Window to Multipanel Mirror

The talented Sarah of Sarah M. Dorsey Designs recently completed my favorite kind of project – a revamp and a knock-off all rolled into one! Sarah took an old window and turned it into a gorgeous multipanel wall mirror. How’d she do it? Spray paint! Sarah says, “ The Looking Glass spray paint has a beautiful reflective quality – it’s hard to believe that it came out of a spray can.”

Solid Wood Pyramid Block Set

Jaime from That’s My Letter teamed up with Ana White to build a 100-piece solid wood block set inspired by Land of Nod. Now I know blocks aren’t technically décor, but… with the multitude of colors and pyramid design, I dare say these blocks would make an artistic statement in any play space or bedroom! Jaime even colored the blocks with food coloring, so they are safe for little ones to chew on build with. That Jaime always thinks of everything!

Rollaway Toy Storage Crate


Now that the presents have all been unwrapped are you wondering where you are going to store them all??? Desiree from Camelot Art Creations made this rolling storage bin to corral all the toys that threaten to take over her living area each day. The beauty of this piece is that it allows her children to be accountable for cleaning up themselves since it requires simply throwing the toys into the crate. Desiree built her crate for free using pallet wood, but if building’s not your thing, you could also doctor up an unfinished crate from the craft store.
