Ruffled Burlap Lampshade

Amy from Mom Advice put the finishing touch on her daughter’s bedroom update with a girly lampshade. Amy refabbed her daughter’s previous shade by covering it with burlap and then adding all those glorious ruffles that make it so much fun. I love the choice of the burlap with its texture and slightly frayed edges.

Multipanel Mirror

Debbie from One Day at a Time finally tackled a project that had been lingering around her to-do list for way too long, a multipanel mirror inspired by Pottery Barn. Debbie constructed her mirror with particle board and trim. I am loving this DIY option since large mirrors can cost a small fortune and be a pain to find in just the right size. The multiple panels make it simple to customize to fit your space.

Melissa from The Happier Homemaker finally jumped on the sunburst mirror bandwagon after seeing an inspiration piece by Ballard Designs made of bone. Melissa had the instant idea to use popsicle sticks and an old clock from her stash to recreate it. I don’t think you could ask for better rays than those popsicle sticks!

Key-Topped Bottles

t’s kind of hard to make key-topped bottles when you don’t have any antique keys. That is unless you’re a resourceful gal like Amy from Twigg Studios! Amy molded her own keys out of clay that have the same beautiful detail of her Pottery Barn inspiration. And I can guarantee they didn’t cost $59 to make!

Paula from Sweet Pea fulfilled a little girl’s Christmas wish by making a balance beam for her American Girl McKenna doll. The balance beam was on back order until March so Paula and her husband really came to the rescue. Their little friend tells everyone that her balance beam was crafted by “real live elves.” Too cute!
