After unexpectedly losing her beloved dog, Amanda from A Lovely Place to Land took comfort in this pillow she made picturing her sweet fur baby.

Farmhouse Grain Sieve Light Fixture

Shayna of The Wood Grain Cottage loves one-of-a-kind lighting and wanted to create a fixture from an old grain sieve. The problem was all the vintage sieves she found were either way to expensive or too big. Knock-off time! Shayna shares at Infarrantly Creative how she made her own wooden sieve using basswood and wire and turned it into a light with a pendant kit… all for only $20. Shayna says it’s the perfect touch to her newly-designed mudroom!

Jen from Migonis Home shares a quick and easy DIY spring wreath you can still whip up before Easter. All she did was wrap a wreath form with moss and then glued on a sisal bunny from Michael’s. How darling, and I love all the texture!

Every Jewelry Drawer Needs a Sparkly Knob!

Kelly from View Along the Way recently built jewelry drawers inside her closet, complete with velvet lining upcycled from a thrift store dress. The only thing Kelly’s new drawers were lacking was knobs and not just any knobs – knobs with bling! Kelly found Precious Stone Knobs from Anthropologie that offered tons of sparkle… for $128 PER knob. Instead Kelly added screws to pieces of pyrite and had her own “precious” knobs for waaay less!

Sara of Major Hoff Takes a Wife has a special place in her heart for bobbins and spools. Not only has she long been a seamstress, but Sara’s great grandmother worked as a weaver in a cotton mill. You can find old bobbins at antique stores, flea markets, Etsy, and eBay, OR you can follow Sara’s tutorial to make your own! How cute are these that Sara displayed on her mantel? I love the lace wrapped around it!

Erin from Elizabeth Joan Designs needed some storage for her son’s ever-growing collection of basketballs, footballs and soccer balls. She happened to have an old metal laundry basket in storage and gave it an industrial makeover a la Restoration Hardware. I love how Erin was able to use a little creativity to turn an item she wasn’t using anymore into a functional and decorative storage solution!

Make Your Own Stripe Curtains from Sheets

While planning her daughter’s bedroom, Carissa of Carissa Miss knew pink, vertical stripe curtains were part of the equation. Unfortunately, the custom curtains Carissa had her heart set on were $95 per panel. Like she says, “When you can’t buy what you want, you just DO IT YOURSELF.” And Carissa did – for $32 thanks to Wal-mart’s low prices and selection of flat sheets. Being a frugal gal myself, I love how Carissa used the sheets to save on fabric costs. What a great money-saving tip!
