Alphabet Wall Art with a Personal Touch

alphabet wall art

Anita from Inspired Passions first discovered the dreamy decorative world of Pottery Barn thanks to Rachel on Friends, and every since then she’s been hooked! Since Anita lives in the land down under and can’t actually have any of PB’s pretties delivered to her, she turns to DIY to get the same look. Anita made this amazing alphabet canvas for her son’s room using personal pictures and clipart. I love that she incorporated her faith into the pictures to make an awesome looking piece of artwork that is also packed with meaning!

Girls Embroidered Bed Canopy from Curtains

Girls Bed Canopy

Kylie from Stylish Settings started making curtains for her daughter’s bedroom years ago after viewing them in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Then the project got put on hold and soon forgotten. After finding the pieces in a box, Kylie got to work embroidering little birdies, flowers, and butterflies and attaching them to white sheer curtains. Instead of using her panels for a window, Kylie formed a canopy around the head of her daughter’s bed using a bed crown. My daughter would absolutely love this!

Decorative Pear (That Looks Good Enough to Eat!)

Elisha of Pneumatic Addict Furniture has admired Ballard’s Terra Cotta Pears for years, but it wasn’t until a recent craft store trip that she was inspired to make her own. Elisha combined a Styrofoam ball and cone to make her 13 inch pear form and then added texture and depth with tissue paper and paint. I think she did a great job giving it a realistic look!

While browsing through Anthropologie, Heather from Poppy Haus couldn’t help but take notice of how they use everyday items to create their eye-catching displays. Thus, she was inspired to recreate their stunning paper chandelier using an item you very well have in your kitchen right now – cupcake liners! Heather shares at Design Sponge how she added depth and texture to a paper lantern by covering it with solid cupcake liners inset with striped petite four papers. The soft glow and graphic effect are simply stunning!

$10 Pottery Barn Inspired Wood Clock

Why spend $300 on a wooden clock face when you can make your own for a mere $10?!? Decorate Me Diana turned to her wood stash and a few other basic do-it-yourselfer supplies to create a rustic clock face that rivals those from Pottery Barn. For the numerals, Diana simply printed them from the computer and then used some good old fashion scissors and Mod Podge  to apply them to the clock face – no cutting machine or hand painting required!

Mable at Lilato Laka has been hard at work on her son’s nautical-theme nursery and added to its charm with a rope shelf. Mable simple drilled holes into the corners of a shelf she already had, tied on some sisal rope, and then hung it from robe hooks on the wall. It’s the special little touches like Mable’s shelf that really make a space come together!

Kitchen Tablet Stand (Without Cutting a Piece of Wood!)

All my regular readers know I love a good repurpose and some outside-the-box thinking, which likely explains my excitement over this tablet holder created by Jane of Mamie Jane’s. Jane didn’t have to cut a single piece of wood to create her stand thanks to her mad repurposing skills. She simply glued a Scrabble tile holder to the front of a thrift store cutting board and a child’s wooden triangle block to the back and called it a day! Genius!
