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!

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!

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!

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!?!”
