Glass Container Terrariums

diy-glass-jar-terrariums.jpg

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!

While making over her daughter’s bedroom, Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage got a request for a big floor pouf. Although she was a little hesitant to tackle the seemingly complicated project, Gina knew she wasn’t spending over $200 on the one her daughter had been eyeing. In the end, Gina actually ended up spending only an hour on the task and saved money by stuffing the pouf with blankets and other soft items from around the house.

Personalized Canvas Nightlight

I think part of the appeal of Pottery Barn Kids is that pretty much anything can be customized. However, as we all know, custom comes at a cost. Like… $35 for a nightlight. Ouch! Fortunately, crafty ladies like Vanessa from Tried and True have a knack for getting that custom look without spending $35 on something that costs $5 at Wal-mart. Vanessa shares at Crafts Unleashed how she made this adorable nightlight using a mini canvas and tissue paper. Too cute!

Brooke, being the creative genius that she is, turned two lazy Susans into fun AND decorative spinning chore charts for her kids. Who would ever think kids would actually […Read More]
