Heidi from All That Brings Joy was inspired by all the different hand painted, antique looking signs she’s seen around Pottery Barn for the last year or two to finally tackle her own. She decided to make one for her kitchen and went with the word market. With the little amount of wood and paint required for this project, Heidi was able to do it without spending any money.

Anu from Nalle’s House was all settled on modern coat knobs she wanted to purchase for her mini mudroom… and then discovered they simply wouldn’t fit. Anu found a very cost-friendly alternative in some unfinished wood knobs that she finished with a bright blue stain and mounted with double-ended screws. The knob are functional and add a great pop of color to the small space (which is absolutely darling)!

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented has a love affair with trays and simply cannot get enough.

Jaime from That’s My Letter didn’t disappoint when a friend requested a set of display shelves similar to those sold by Pottery Barn Kids. Jaime teamed up with Ana White to build shelves that can easily be customized to fit any wall space. Why spend $49 or even $79 (ouch!) for one simple shelf when you could build your own for only $11?!?

Decorative Spring Baskets

Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected put a fresh spin on a project she completed last summer upcycling strawberry cartons. This go-round Sherry dressed up the cartons with pastel paint, glitter, and ribbons for a look that’s befitting of spring and Easter. Sherry’s steps result in a durable, waterproof finish so the containers can be used again and again as tabletop décor, mini Easter baskets, and even gift baskets for friends.

With a kitchen full of recessed lighting, Jessie from Imperfectly Polished had been dreaming of adding pendants above her island. After some research, she and her husband figured out how to convert one of the lights into a 3-light hanging pendant. They built a rustic beam and used Edison bulbs with glass vases as pendants to add some personality.
