Repurposed Chalkboard Jars

anthropologie inspired chalkboard jars

I love taking something that’s normally discarded and making it usable and lovable. That’s exactly what Kendra from The Good Life did with glass jars she had been saving. Kendra painted the jars with chalkboard paint and then added a pop of color to the lids. These little jars are cute and packed with storage potential!

Valentine’s Candle Holders

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative, you know I have been engrossed in my biggest DIY project ever (aka my new and absolutely fabulous craft studio) and have had little time for Valentine’s crafting. That’s left me on the lookout for short and sweet projects like these “LOVE” votive holders made by Jeanine at Okio B Designs. All Jeanine had to do was print out her lettering on label paper and then stick it on the glass. That I have time for!

Gold Framed Sketches

Mekenzie’s love for Restoration Hardware runs pretty deep, and she’s had many successes at replicating the look without the cost. She shares her latest and greatest over at Interiors by Kenz – gold-framed wall art. What I love about Kenz’s knockoff is that she incorporated her own love for aviation by framing Leonardo Da Vinci sketches of flying machines, making her art stylish, meaningful, and cheap!

The popularity of large tabletop lanterns hasn’t escaped the notice of Beth from Free Stylin’, and she of course knew it wasn’t necessary to pay exorbitant prices for the trendy lights. Instead, Beth had the genius idea to upcycle an old brassy light fixture into a lantern. These lights are everywhere so this is a super simple project anyone can tackle on the cheap!

Erin from One Project at a Time couldn’t help but do “a little happy dance” when she found plans for a geometric daybed over at Ana White. It was just the bed she had been wanting for her baby’s nursery, and Erin was more than thrilled to save some cash through DIY. She pretty much sums it up when she says, “The best thing about DIY is with a little courage and practice you can have West Elm taste on a Kmart budget.”

When Jeanie from Create and Babble needed a clock for her kitchen, she went to the store and bought one. And brought it home and decided she really didn’t like it. Fast forward a year, and Jeanie knew it was high time the clock got a makeover. With a can of spray paint and the help of her Cameo, Jeanie turned the ugly clock into an accent piece she’s now proud to display on her wall.
