Treat-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!

Rustic Corner Desk

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???

She says, “I love how they are scary yet elegant enough to display in my home.”

Caged Metal Pendant Light

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!

Halloween Countdown Calendar

Courtenay from The Creek Line House has had Halloween fever for the past several weeks and couldn’t wait any longer to get her craft on for the occasion. She says, “When I saw this Halloween countdown calendar in the latest PBK catalogue, I just had to see if I could make one as easily as I thought I could. With just some felt from Michael’s and a few packs of
letter stickers, I created something almost identical… for about $11 instead of $59.”
