Decoupage “LOVE” Canvas

Yesterday I shared a wooden “LOVE” sign to get your sweet and sappy Valentine’s creative juices flowing. Anna from My Life and Kids turned to her tried-and-true scrapbook paper and Mod Podge technique to create a wall canvas with a similar design. The piece of art found a permanent home in her baby’s nursery but would also make great holiday décor.

“LOVE” Wall Plaque

With Valentine’s Day just at a month away, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to show your décor a little love. Cristina at Remodelando la Casa repurposed some ceiling beams and plywood into a wall plaque in honor of the day of love. I’m all about that pop of red Cristina added to spice up the monochromatic art!

Wood Buffet Table

Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement has been blessed with a husband who can build just about anything. Each Christmas he likes to make her a piece of furniture, and 2012 found them in need of table for behind the couch. Pam and her handy hubs modified the design for a buffet from Pottery Barn that provides plenty of storage for extra dishes and such. I can only dream of being able to build a piece of furniture like this!

Painted Schoolhouse Light Fixture

There’s a lot to love about the industrial look of schoolhouse-style light fixtures. Throw in a colorful stripe, and I am over the moon! Mary from At Home on the Bay transformed an inexpensive light fixture from Home Depot with some spray paint and gave it the look of a much pricier fixture. I am so loving that beautiful combination of aqua and silver!

Metal and Glass Side Table

Like most first-time home buyers, Jessica of The McKeown Residence found herself with big dreams of filling it with beautiful catalog pieces but a small budget. Jessica loved a metal and glass side table from Crate & Barrel and was able to track down a similar table with a price tag that fit that small budget. All it took was a few coats of spray paint to get almost an identical look!

Antique Silver Frame

Lauren from The Endearing Home almost purchased a beautiful antique silver frame from West Elm. Almost… before she realized she had several old frames in her garage that could easily be refabbed. Lauren applied Rub ‘n Buff to one of the frames for an aged silver finish and also created a linen matting using an old curtain panel. I am loving how Lauren totally nailed the look with items she already had! Yay for not one but TWO great upcycles!

Chalkboard Window

When Eva from River Cliff Cottage spied Pottery Barn’s chalkboard window, she set out to make her own using what she had on hand – an old window, chalkboard paint, and  chalkboard ink. Eva gave the glass a chalkboard finish and then decked it out for the holidays. Chalk art provides a great platform for those who like to frequently change up their décor and give it a seasonal spin.

Paper Mosaic Art

I know we all love DIY art, especially easy, cheap, and gorgeous DIY art! Cassity from Remodelaholic shares how she made a stunning mosaic from scrapbook paper. I love the colors and am simply blown away by how much Cassity’s mosaic looks like glass. Crazy to think all it requires is cutting and gluing!
