Thrifted Nut Bowl to Wood Slice Mirror

I know people often look at the things in thrift stores and garage sales and wonder what in the world it is and who would ever buy it. Like a nut bowl that looks like it was cut from a tree trunk. Where one person sees a strange, old nut bowl, a creative genius like Caitlin from the Desert Domicile sees an urban chic Anthropologie-inspired mirror. Caitlin took the $5 nut bowl and in just a few steps turned it into this amazing mirror that seriously gives the Anthro inspiration a run for its money. I love how Caitlin used one of her late grandmother’s Mexican woven belts so the mirror is not only stylin’ but meaningful.

Printable Industrial Style Letters

Jennifer from Blissfully Ever After wanted to add some industrial style letters to her son’s playroom. Jennifer knew she could purchase letters at the craft store, but then she came across Whitney’s free printable and tutorial at Shanty 2 Chic for creating DIY industrial letters. Jackpot! Jessica paired her own faux galvanized metal painting technique and Whitney’s printables to make her large wall letters for a mere $10!

DIY Modern Wood Clock

Lindsay from Makely Home kicked off her Knocktoberfest with a fun DIY clock project she whipped up. Loving a $99 clock from CB2, but of course not wanting to dish out that much dough, Lindsay created her own with a few poplar boards and a clock kit. This is so easy, and you sure can’t beat $20 for a large, stylish clock!

Wood Framed Flatware Kitchen Art

Nick from Lifestyles of the Rich and the Davis’ was happy to oblige when his wife requested a trio of flatware canvases for their dining area. With the help of Photoshop, Nick created his own stencils and painted the spoon, knife, on fork onto the canvases. Now, many would of stopped there, but Nick wasn’t done yet! He then turned the “disjointed set of silverware” into a statement piece by building a wood frame. I love how it brings the whole piece together!

Pom-Pom Fringe Pillow Cover

If you have got a couch, chair, or bed in need of a little pick-me-up, this pom-pom pillow from The Sassy Life is sure to infuse a bit of personality into the space! The sassy lady behind this pillow simply sewed layers of pom-pom fringe onto the front of her DIY pillow cover. If sewing isn’t your thing, she suggests trying a fusible bonding product or hot glue. I know this isn’t a holiday pillow, but there is something so festive about the pom-poms that I think it would be a great addition to holiday décor.

Turn a Log Into a Stacked Wood Slice Lamp

As soon as Jessica from Fit and Crafty saw a beautiful stacked base lamp on Pinterest, she was in love! Unfortunately, the link led her straight to a $600 price tag, which was much too pricey for her budget. That just meant a DIY was in order, which wasn’t a problem for Jessica who had tackled lamp sockets in the past. Jessica tracked down some free firewood on Craigslist, sliced up the logs, and turned them into a set of stylish lamps.

Oversized Vintage Flashcard Art

Our playroom is the first thing guests see as soon as they walk into our home. In an effort to spruce things up a bit, I have been giving the space a little TLC and making some changes, including knock-off wall art. Yesterday on Infarrantly Creative, I shared how I created these larger-than-life vintage flashcards. I love the clean look as well as the fact that they are humongo and take up a good bit of wall space on the cheap. Woot woot!

Nautical Rope Mirror with Anchor

Decorate Me Diana was shopping at the Pottery Barn Outlet when she came across an amazing round rope mirror that she was sure she could replicate. I mean there’s nothing too difficult about gluing rope around a mirror, right? I love Diana’s even more than PB’s. The little anchor detail she added to the bottom makes it over-the-top cute for her son’s nautical-themed bedroom!
