IKEA Cabinet Mirror Makeover

A few years ago, Maryann from Domestically Speaking took an inexpensive IKEA cabinet and turned it into a beautiful piece for her daughter’s room. I actually had the very same inexpensive IKEA cabinet she transformed and I am seriously blown away. Sadly, my cabinet did not survive four moves and is now long gone, but seeing Maryann’s awesome makeover makes me wish I could get it back!

Linen Message Board with Nailhead Trim

When Emily from On the V Side decided to turn her office into a usable craft space, she says there was no question the walls needed a little “pick-me-up.” Emily started with the “simplest of organizational tools” and created a corkboard for the wall. The fun part was that Emily challenged herself to make it for absolutely no cost, using only items she had on hand. Sounds like a girl after my own heart!

Burlap Message Board

Ballard’s burlap message board has gotten a lot of knock-off love throughout the blogosphere. Considering all the renditions I have seen of the popular board, I can’t help but be a little surprised when I come across a new take on it. Mel from {Frantz} Featherings created a spot-on copycat by attaching corkboard to a canvas and then wrapping it with burlap. While Mel says the canvas is a pricier alternative to foam core, it really helped her achieve the look she was after.

Burlap and Ribbon Memo Board

The little memo board above the desk of Gina from The Cannary Family was overflowing with pictures and other mementoes. Fortunately, Gina had a large bulletin board in her garage that was practically begging for a makeover. Gina gave it the Ballard treatment with burlap and upholstery tacks but then also added a French memo board twist by creating a design with ribbon. Gina’s new board doesn’t skimp on style or space!
