Wood Tile Dresser

Last week I told you all that it was Knockoff Round over at East Coast Creative’s Creating with the Stars competition. I am so thrilled to announce my girl Amanda from Love and Renovations brought home the gold with her wood tiled dresser {Squuueeeaaal!}. Amanda already had her sights set on recreating West Elm’s dresser and succeeded in bringing it to life with a flea market find and a pile of wood tiles. Behold its awesomeness….

Faceted Pendant Light

Kelly from View Along the Way has a major crush on faceted lighting and décor. Fortunately, she also has a brilliant husband with mad woodworking skills who was able to create this dodecahedron light fixture, which is made of “30 pieces of wood cut at very exact, weird angles.” My head hurts just thinking about it! Kelly’s whole laundry room makeover is simply stunning, but this little light steals the show!

Embellished Bud Vase

Lora from Craftivity Designs created this bud vase that’s perfect for displaying those beautiful spring blooms. Lora paired a thrifted flower pin with a thrifted vase for an all together thrifty version of Anthro’s pretty flower vases. Spring is all about new life, and this is a great way to repurpose an old piece of jewelry and give it a fresh start!

Stenciled Burlap Lampshade

Traci from Beneath My Heart was flipping through her Pottery Barn Kids catalog when a burlap lampshade caught her eye. And… surprise! It wasn’t because it was exactly what she’d been looking for and knew she could make it for less. On the contrary, Traci had already created almost identical lampshades for her boys’ room three years prior! Pretty striking resemblance, eh? Traci can proudly say, “Pottery Barn copied me!” {Giggled}

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!
