Burlap Message Board

ballard-knock-off-burlap-message-board.jpg

When her husband needed a message board for his home office, Emily from life{illustrated} searched the internet to find one that wasn’t too “pretty.” A burlap covered message board with nail head trim was perfect for the space and crazy easy to make using a thrifted $2 bulletin board. I love what Emily has to say here about not spending more than is “absolutely necessary” on material items. It is hard to fathom spending tons of money on a memo board when you can get something similar for a few dollars and a little creativity!

Jacob from Home Tree Atlas has just delved into the world of chalkboard paint! One of his pioneer projects was an Anthropologie-inspired chalkboard globe that now serves as a weekly to-do list on his desk. How much more fun is this than a plain old sheet of paper?!? In addition to impeccable style, I  think Jacob has superb taste in online reading materials {wink}!

Mary from At Home on the Bay is a lady who loves artwork. Combine artwork AND letters, and she’s hooked! Mary made these artistic letters by covering paper mache letters with “paintings” printed on fabric. Even with purchasing several materials, Mary still made all five letters for only $20. I love this fun and fresh take on the typography trend!

Burlap Easter Flag

Yes, the temperature today is in the thirties, but all the bunnies and eggs around make me feel like spring is on the horizon! Susan from Sunflower Hugs used materials she had on hand to create this burlap Easter flag with a bunny silhouette applique. Pottery Barn’s flag is already sold out, so Susan points out that you will have to DIY if you want to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Susan makes it easy on you with her tutorial!

Upholstered Piano Bench

Virginia from LiveLoveDIY used an old Goodwill piano bench (a $5 score!) to recreate her very own version of Ballard’s $400 Simone Bench. The project literally only cost $5 and less than an hour of time. If you are wondering how Virginia pulled it off, she likes to save money by using pillow stuffing instead of foam. You don’t even need a staple gun for this project – just a hammer and glue!

Hurricane with Rope Pedestal

Sometimes a simple flip or snip can give your old décor a whole new look. That was the case with this candle holder that Jeanette from Homa Style created by turning a glass dome she already owned upside down. She placed it atop a rope-wrapped vase with a dab of hot glue so it can easily transition back to a dome when Jeanette’s ready to mix it up again.
