Capiz Shell Pendant Light

Kelly from View Along the Way was on a mission to tackle the bare handing light bulbs in her home one bulb at a time. A pricey capiz shell chandelier from Horchow caught her eye, but it was a tea light holder from TJMaxx that actually made the dream a reality. Kelly and her husband turned the candle holder and an IKEA lamp into their own pretty pendant.

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!

Burlap Memo Board

Lisa from Diary of {Wannabe} Domestic Diva found a burlap memo board from Ballard that was perfect for displaying project ideas in her new craft space. Not surprisingly, the price was the only thing that wasn’t perfect about it, but Lisa found a way to get that sought after Ballard look with items she already had. Looks just like the inspiration to me!

Framed Alphabet Art

When it came time to decorate her second child’s nursery, Danielle at House in the South knew she wanted to include an alphabet print. Here’s what she has to say: “After seeing the Alphabet Zoo nursery art from ZGallerie, I ran across a pack of animal alphabet cards by Jenn Ski the creator of the ZGallerie piece. With a few on-hand craft items I used them to make a knock off that I am extremely pleased with.” How cool is it that the cards Danielle found were by the same artist as her inspiration???
