Wood Coat Knobs

Anu from Nalle’s House was all settled on modern coat knobs she wanted to purchase for her mini mudroom… and then discovered they simply wouldn’t fit. Anu found a very cost-friendly alternative in some unfinished wood knobs that she finished with a bright blue stain and mounted with double-ended screws. The knob are functional and add a great pop of color to the small space (which is absolutely darling)!

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented has a love affair with trays and simply cannot get enough. Here’s what she has to say about her favorite decorative accessory: “From the entry way to bedside, they are stylish must-haves that can help you display, contain and organize.  Whether you are decorating or entertaining, everything looks better on a tray.” I love how Mary Anne embellished this thrift store tray with thumb tacks!

Jaime from That’s My Letter didn’t disappoint when a friend requested a set of display shelves similar to those sold by Pottery Barn Kids. Jaime teamed up with Ana White to build shelves that can easily be customized to fit any wall space. Why spend $49 or even $79 (ouch!) for one simple shelf when you could build your own for only $11?!?

Decorative Spring Baskets

Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected put a fresh spin on a project she completed last summer upcycling strawberry cartons. This go-round Sherry dressed up the cartons with pastel paint, glitter, and ribbons for a look that’s befitting of spring and Easter. Sherry’s steps result in a durable, waterproof finish so the containers can be used again and again as tabletop décor, mini Easter baskets, and even gift baskets for friends.

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented was in need of some baskets to tame the media mess that had taken over her built-in console. Some wire baskets from Pottery Barn sent her straight into “knock off mode.” With the help of IKEA and a trusty can of spray paint, Mary Anne got the same look for way less than cash!

Recessed Light to Pendant Light

With a kitchen full of recessed lighting, Jessie from Imperfectly Polished had been dreaming of adding pendants above her island. After some research, she and her husband figured out how to convert one of the lights into a 3-light hanging pendant. They built a rustic beam and used Edison bulbs with glass vases as pendants to add some personality.

Honor from Home Heart Craft really takes Sharpie art to a whole new level with this project! Wanting to “add a little more color and spice to [her] kitchen cabinet,” Honor recreated a set of vibrant floral mugs she fell in love with from Anthropologie using just Sharpies. Honor says she simply doodled away on her mugs while referencing her inspiration photo. I’m really blown away by her artistry!

Alphabet Lazy Susan

Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected scored a free lazy Susan at a garage sale when the owner happily threw it in with Sherry’s other findings. There was no way Sherry would turn down an opportunity to find a way to turn it into something fabulous, and, of course, she doesn’t disappoint! The once old, tired lazy Susan now has a smart new look with a bold alphabet design around the rim.
