Roeshel of The DIY Showoff tried her hand at working with clay for the first time to create this oversized wishbone that’s perfect for the Thanksgiving season.

To go next to her stunning starburst mirror Christmas tree, Jen from Tatertots & Jello created a holiday sign that also reflects her gold, white, and grey color theme. Jen purchased a cheap shelf board for the sign and used her handy dandy Silhouette for the art. Believe me when I say the Silhouette makes sign-making a breeze.

Cara from Chasing Shiny Objects gave a quick update to a plain white table by painting the legs gold for a trendy paint-dipped effect.

As Cara shares, this look can be achieved with one of those cheap round tables that are usually covered with a tablecloth. With a little paint, no one will know it’s from Wal-mart!

Debbie combined elements from a couple of her faves from Crate& Barrel to come up with a unique design that would work in her “1951 post-war cape cottage.” Debbie’s bronze-and-gold beauty was created using floral stakes, glue, and an octagon mirror for even more “50’s flair.”
