Eye Chart Tray

diy eye chart tray

Eye chart art has become crazy popular, and I am just loving this tray made by Val from Home Made Modern. You’ll be happy to know that the only tool you need to make your own is a pencil! Val shares a great technique for transferring images with just a pencil, and, as you can see from her tray, it works like a charm!

Treat-or-Treat Sign

trick or treat sign

Lorraine from South Meets Southwest created this Halloween sign as a craft prize for Bunco night with the girls. (And let me say that I love the idea of everyone bringing a craft to exchange as a prize!) She used a ballpoint pen to leave the imprint for her text and then painted it in. Lorraine says, “I went home with a very cute craft from the party, but I was still a little sad to have to part with my Halloween sign.” Looks like another sign’s in the making!

Nautical Rope Mirror

Leah of Moss Eclectic had only one item on her must-have list for her son’s nursery – a rope mirror like the beauty she’d been admiring from Restoration Hardware. Since the $650 original would have totally blown the nursery budget out of the water, Leah instead turned the friendly-on-the-wallet IKEA for a round mirror. With some eye hooks and thick rope, Leah created this awesome replica!

Liz from Hoosier Homemade had been dreaming and waiting for a rustic PB-style office desk for three long years. That dream finally came to fruition when she spotted some barn doors with a free sign sitting on the side of the road. Liz’s husband built custom cabinets and then cut the barn doors to fit on top. Here’s from Liz: “Even though we dreamed, planned and built the desk ourselves, I never imagined how awesome it would be… My days in my office, just got a little longer!”

Vintage Framed Map

With a love for all things Restoration Hardware, Kenz of Interiors By Kenz turned to their antique maps as inspiration for her own piece of map art. Kenz created her large map by printing it on multiple sheets of paper and then adhering the parts to a piece of plywood. She finished up by plucking some wood from her fence to use for the frame. (I’m loving that resourcefulness!) Would you believe this amazing piece of framed map art cost Kenz nothing… nada… the big goose egg???

Halloween Skull Vases

The Halloween projects just keep a comin’! That gives you plenty of time to gather some bottles and turn them into skull vases following Angie’s tutorial at The Country Chic Cottage. Angie got her old milk bottles at the thrift store for a bargain. With some spray paint and foam skull cutouts, they will be a great addition to her Halloween mantel. She says, “I love how they are scary yet elegant enough to display in my home.”

Tricia from Simplicity in the South wanted to replace the bare bulb in the ceiling of her son’s closet-turned-workspace. She was inspired by a caged pendant light that appealed to her vintage style and was able to replicate the look with supplies she ordered online. Tricia’s knockoff is the spitting image of her RH inspiration and cost only a third of the price!
