Stacked Glass Hurricanes

The Christmas season is officially on, and I know we are all looking for ways to bring holiday cheer to our homes. Kayla from Whatever is Lovely created a couple of pretty hurricanes a la Pottery Barn by simply stacking glass vases she already had on top of each other. It doesn’t get much easier than that, and these hurricanes are lovely for any time of the year. Simply change out the candle and filler, and you’re set!

Storage Bookcases

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic added a set of bookcases to the list of furniture items she has constructed for her daughters’ shared bedroom. Whitney followed plans by Ana White but built on the functionality by creating a cubby storage space on the bottom. The simple addition of the boards will keep toys contained on the shelves and is cheaper and easier than hunting down baskets that fit perfectly.

Mari from Crab + Fish wanted a gilded bedside table for her master bedroom and realized she already owned a nightstand with a very similar shape to one she’d been admiring from Urban Outfitters. With some gold leaf, Mari transformed the childhood furniture into one she can now love as an adult. How glam is this?

Burlap Matting

You might be surprised that the box from this morning’s bowl of cereal could become wall décor that rivals that of Pottery Barn. Just check out this burlap mat that Melissa from Redfly Creations created from cardboard. A spray painted secondhand frame makes this project all the more thrifty!

Santa Pallet Art

Last year Matt and Jacque from The DIY Village created this Santa art from repurposed deck boards for a pallet art look. Matt did a phenomenal job tracing the original image on the computer to create a stencil, and then a little red paint brought Saint Nick to life. As Matt points out, any canvas or wood would be a great backdrop for creating your own piece of inexpensive Christmas art.
