Faux Mantel Wall Shelves

If you bemoan the fact that you don’t have a mantel and, therefore, a place displaying for cutesy holiday vignettes, you’ve got to check out these shelves from Mallory at Classy Clutter! Mallory built simple wall shelves by adding trim and corbels to a MDF board. These look great clustered together, so you can customize the number and size of your shelves to meet your space and decorative needs. Doesn’t Mallory’s suh-weet Valentine’s display make you want to build one right now!?!

Wax Paper Chandelier

DIY Capiz Shell Chandelier 9

Lacy from A Decorating Diva’s Diary faced quite the challenge to find lighting that would work with her home’s very high ceilings and open floor plan. She created a fixture with the luminous look of capiz shells and large scale she needed using an unlikely material – wax paper! Isn’t it amazing how totally glam and expensive it looks!?!

Old Book Bundles

Old books make great decorative accents and are seen throughout the pages of design catalogs. However, the simplicity kinda leaves you wondering how they can even charge for the cute little bundles. Décor Chick Emily tore off the pages from some old thrift store books and then tied them with string. I don’t think it gets any easier than that!

Hive Patterned Vase

I am loving this easy vase update shared by Angie of The Country Chic Cottage. It’s not like my hubby is constantly bringing me vases of flowers, but I somehow always seem to have plenty of them hiding in my cabinets. Angie busted out the Krylon on her vase and then used a dimensional writer to create a very cool honeycomb pattern for instant style.

Rustic Wood Clock

Kara of Kara Paslay Designs totally came through on her promise to replicate a rustic wood clock from Pottery Barn. I love the split wooden disc left over from another project that Kara selected for the clock face. I mean… does it get any more rustic? Kara’s clock is definitely full of one-of-a-kind charm just like her inspiration!

Patterned Wood Tray

The Mombot Amy has found some thrifty treasures in Target’s dollar spot, including a small wooden tray that bore a strong resemblance to one she’d been eyeing from West Elm. She snatched one up and added a coordinating paper to the interior for a fun punch of pizzazz. So cheap… so simple… and so cute!

Tree Stump Table

Lovers of all things Restoration Hardware, Lidy from Hello Lidy and her husband are always on the lookout for less costly ways to bring the look home. They scored a salvaged tree stump that was headed for the chopping block (literally!) and transformed it into a trendy side table. The total cost for their table came in at $20, which is an amazing price compared to a whopping $695 for their RH inspiration!

No-Sew Antler Pillow

West-Elm-Knockoff-Antler-Pillow-ItsOverflowing

Aimee from It’s Overflowing shows it is possible to create a knock-off pillow without a needle and thread. Aimee let her Silhouette Cameo do almost all the work for this project! All she had to do was iron the perfectly cut deer head onto a ready-made pillow she snagged on clearance at Target. As Aimee asks, “how can something that simple be that cute!?!”
