Patterned Mercury Glass Vase

After her daughter’s wedding, Jeanie from Create and Babble found herself with several clear glass vases on hand. She decided it was time she jumped on the mercury glass train and grabbed her can of Looking Glass spray paint. Now we’ve all seen this done a time or two, but I love how Jeanie took it a step further by creating a pattern on the glass with glue. You’ll have to pop over to her site to see exactly how she did it!

Boston Subway Art

A close friend of Jeannine from The Concrete Cottage loved the Z Gallerie subway art and wanted to give it as a gift to her dad. When she asked if Jeannine could recreate it, she had a small list of requests: make it personalized, make it a bit less distressed, and make it for way cheaper than Z Gallerie’s! Done, done and done! Jeannnie was able to use her Silhouette, some paint, and a bit of chalk to create a one-of-a-kind gift that nearly brought her friend’s dad to tears!

Chalkboard Globe Makeover

Lora from Craftivity Designs loves anything globe or map related, so when she saw the Anthropologie Soapstone Globe, she had to recreate it. Lora already had a toy globe on hand that she had picked up at a yard sale for only $2. With some chalkboard paint, it’s now the perfect way to display a sweet note or special quote!

Mini Wheelbarrow Centerpiece

I just love this fresh and fun spring centerpiece made by Jaime from That’s My Letter. She gathered up some wood scraps to create the rustic wheelbarrow and then filled it with homegrown wheat grass and marshmallow Peeps, which are just too stinkin’ cute! Jaime suggests also using the wheelbarrow to display plastic eggs, bread, wrapped silverware, etc… One little wheelbarrow… so many uses!

Curved Wood Headboard

Tricia from Little Cottage on the Pond had been wanting a dramatic curved wood headboard from Ballard for ages, but the price was way out of her comfort zone. Her husband took one look at the long-desired headboard and said he could make it for Tricia. The sweet guy was true to his word and got it right down to the last detail, even including the little birdie perched on the side!

Burlap Easter Napkin Rings

You may remember the bunny ear napkin rings shared here on KOD a couple of weeks ago. Well, Trish from Uncommon Designs also couldn’t pass up on the adding some major cuteness to her table this Easter with a set of the napkin rings. Trish’s technique results in a seamless finish with bunny ears that are super sturdy and will not fray. Plus, she says they are easy to make and may not cost you a penny if you’ve got the materials on hand like she did!

Rolling Wire Hamper

Bridgett from Osie Moats is not a fan of plastic laundry baskets since they usually end up broken after being used as stools by her boys. Ever since adding shelving to her bathroom, Bridgett knew she wanted a cottage-inspired laundry basket to fill the space below. However, she wasn’t about the drop a wad of cash on something that would be housing dirty, stinky clothes from three boys. Instead Bridgett gathered several items she already had to create a rustic laundry basket that fits her space to perfection – in both size and design!
