Taryn from Design, Dining, and Diapers has been revamping her master bedroom, toning down the glam in favor of a modern farmhouse look.

Breanna from Brepurposed saw a beautiful wood candle centerpiece while browsing online but says her heart skipped a beat when she saw the price – $69.99 for a piece of wood with holes in it?! Yikes!

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!
Korrie of the Red Hen Home modified plans from Ana White to build this stunning 72” open buffet for a client. I love how the 4×4 legs give this piece such a substantial look. This baby looks solid! Korrie also added decorative hardware which kicks up the rustic/industrial vibe a notch. What a beautiful build!
I can’t help but get excited when I come across a knock-off that’s totally unique and fun, and this lamp from Jessica at Mad In Crafts is all that and more!

She spent only $20 on materials, which is a far cry from the $1298 price tag of her inspiration!
