Decorative Wall Ledge

After building a small ledge for her bathroom, Laura from I’m Not A Trophy Wife knew she wanted a larger, chunkier version for above her bed and came up with some plans to build her own. This is a fabulous alternative to a mantel if you don’t have one and can even make a statement above a bed as a headboard. With the trim detail and distressed finish, it’s full of character and provides plenty of space for decorating.

Round Rosette Pillow

After getting some new bedding from Anthropologie, Camille at Sugar Baby Boutique was smitten with their round rosette pillow as soon as she laid eyes on it. However, as fabulous as it would look on her beloved new bedding, Camille says, “$78 for a small accent pillow wasn’t going to happen any time soon. Especially when I made my knock-off for F-R-E-E.” How sweet is that? This is one of the closet knockoffs I’ve seen in awhile!

Copper Pendant Light

I was majorly wowed when I clicked over and saw these eye-catching copper barn lights Kirstin of Kojo Designs created using IKEA pendants. Here’s from Kirstin: “Since the copper barn lights I kept falling in love with were way out of our price range, we figured why not try to use a $30 IKEA pendant light to recreate the look. I was thrilled when it actually worked.” These truly are gorgeous and require only some spray paint to replicate!

Jute and Metal Lamp Base

Gail from Purple Hues and Me came across a couple of hand woven wicker lamps that really inspired her to update the somewhat “dowdy” ones she’s owned for years. Instead of woven wicker, Gail wrapped her lamp in jute twine and added bands of jute braiding and galvanized tape as accents. Gail did an awesome job combining materials and textures to achieve the look of her inspiration!

Repurposed Chalkboard Jars

I love taking something that’s normally discarded and making it usable and lovable. That’s exactly what Kendra from The Good Life did with glass jars she had been saving. Kendra painted the jars with chalkboard paint and then added a pop of color to the lids. These little jars are cute and packed with storage potential!

Valentine’s Candle Holders

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative, you know I have been engrossed in my biggest DIY project ever (aka my new and absolutely fabulous craft studio) and have had little time for Valentine’s crafting. That’s left me on the lookout for short and sweet projects like these “LOVE” votive holders made by Jeanine at Okio B Designs. All Jeanine had to do was print out her lettering on label paper and then stick it on the glass. That I have time for!
