DIY Bottle Lamp

diy bottle lamp

As Amanda from What Hopes and Dreams are Made of points out, glass lamps are a great fit for pretty much any color scheme or decorating style. It leaves little question to why they have soared in popularity! Amanda got in on the craze by making her own bottle lamp from an apple juice jug she already had. Amanda’s lamp came in at only $24.50, and that includes the shade!

French Valentine’s Pillow

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Valentine Pillow5_thumb[84]

I always know Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict won’t let me down when it comes to creating fabulous DIY pillows on a dime. The girl has out-pillowed even me! In preparation for Valentine’s Day, Debbie created this French telegram pillow using an iron-on transfer.  With tons of texture, Debbie’s pillow far surpasses her inspiration in my book!

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.

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!

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!

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!
