Nautical Clipboard Art

clipboard-art-for-office-inspired-by-pottery-barn.jpg

I have seen clipboards used to create rotating gallery walls before, and their usefulness as wall décor doesn’t stop there. Jeanine at Okio B Designs was inspired to create nautical clipboard art for her office with white paint, starfish, and nautical prints. Clipboards are way cheap, and you could definitely have some fun customizing the design so they speak to you.

Vintage Decoupage Map

When Rachel from Maison de Pax saw a vintage map of Paris at Restoration Hardware, she knew exactly what could fill that enormous space above her couch. Rachel used to live in Paris so the artwork held a special meaning for her. However, no matter how deep her love for the city, Rachel still couldn’t spend thousands on the map. Instead she created a replica for less than 1/20th the price, and although it cost less, it certainly looks just as good!

Sweater Covered Lampshade

DIY-Sweater-Lampshade-Tutorial-by-Unskinny-Boppy-www.unskinnyboppy.com-2.jpg

With the transition from winter to spring comes the task of packing away sweaters and pulling out tees and tanks. Before you write off those old sweaters, check out how Beth at Unskinny Boppy made over a plan white lampshade with a thrift store sweater. I love the idea of adding pattern and texture to a lampshade with a few simple cuts and some glue. It’s amazing the changes you can make it a mere 20 minutes!

Queen Storage Bed

Ever since Shannon from Bohemian Junktion’s son left for college, bed in tow, his room has sat empty. When it came time for spring break and her son’s arrival home, Shannon knew he would obviously need a place to sleep and came up with a plan that involved moving her high school daughter’s bed into her son’s room and building a cottage-y storage bed for her daughter. The really impressive part is that her teenage daughter is the one who actually built the bed using plans from Ana White. You go girl!

Glass Container Terrariums

Inspired by the current trend of houseplants, but uninspired by the thought of upkeep, Sarah from {Home-ology} Modern Vintage became smitten with the idea of terrariums. She found a beautiful terrarium at Crate & Barrel but wasn’t so enthused with its “sale” price. Sarah went in search of similar versions at vintage shops and found three beautiful glass containers to create her own grouping of terrariums.

Wood Twin Bed

With a baby who is no longer baby, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic knew it was time to convert her daughter’s room from a nursery to a big girl room. First up, was a big girl bed that Whitney literally whipped up in one day following plans from Ana White. Whitney’s favorite part about this bed is that it’s built to house a trundle underneath. All I can say is that I am blown away by her mad skills and can’t wait to see how the room comes together!

Painted Clock Face from Table

Becky from Posh Pink Giraffe made a decorative clock face that seriously looks like it came straight from the pages of Pottery Barn’s catalog. And here’s the kicker… it didn’t cost her cent! The secret to Becky’s saving was in repurposing an old tabletop that had been hanging around in the trunk of her car for a month. The table was on its way to Goodwill until Becky was hit with her genius idea. It’s times like these we can be grateful for a little procrastination {wink}!

Painted Stripe Outdoor Rug

Like Heather from Southern State of Mind you have probably found yourself wondering why outdoor furniture and accessories are so crazy expensive. Who wants to spend a ton on things that are going to sit outside and be exposed to the elements? Certainly not Heather! Instead, she spray painted a thrifted rug and got exactly the same look for a grand total of twenty bucks!
