Chalkboard Window

When Eva from River Cliff Cottage spied Pottery Barn’s chalkboard window, she set out to make her own using what she had on hand – an old window, chalkboard paint, and  chalkboard ink. Eva gave the glass a chalkboard finish and then decked it out for the holidays. Chalk art provides a great platform for those who like to frequently change up their décor and give it a seasonal spin.

Paper Mosaic Art

I know we all love DIY art, especially easy, cheap, and gorgeous DIY art! Cassity from Remodelaholic shares how she made a stunning mosaic from scrapbook paper. I love the colors and am simply blown away by how much Cassity’s mosaic looks like glass. Crazy to think all it requires is cutting and gluing!

Teen Memo Board

PB Teen once sold a cute wall organization system that could be customized to suit your young scholar’s needs. It’s no longer available, but would you really have dropped hundreds (no joke… hundreds) on the wall tiles anyway? Judy from DIY by Design created her own by wrapping corkboard tiles in fabric and then inserting them into a frame. Judy’s DIY version is every bit as cute and customizable as PB’s without the cost!

Ruffled Burlap Lampshade

Amy from Mom Advice put the finishing touch on her daughter’s bedroom update with a girly lampshade. Amy refabbed her daughter’s previous shade by covering it with burlap and then adding all those glorious ruffles that make it so much fun. I love the choice of the burlap with its texture and slightly frayed edges.

Jaime from That’s My Letter took inspiration from Ballard’s wood beverage tags and totally ran with it! For this tag-inspired project, Jaime featured Valentine-themed words on small tags and then hot glued them onto a flat wreath form. How sweet is this {wink}?

Multipanel Mirror

Debbie from One Day at a Time finally tackled a project that had been lingering around her to-do list for way too long, a multipanel mirror inspired by Pottery Barn. Debbie constructed her mirror with particle board and trim. I am loving this DIY option since large mirrors can cost a small fortune and be a pain to find in just the right size. The multiple panels make it simple to customize to fit your space.

Mercury glass and metallics are way hot right now, and a little bit of shimmer was just what Kenz’s living room was screaming for. Over at Interiors by Kenz, she shows you how she made six mercury glass vases for the cost of ONE from West Elm. Kenz assures this is a simple project that anyone with any level of talent can do.
