Fork and Spoon Kitchen Wall Art

Anita from Inspired Passions loves all things Pottery Barn and says she would move into the store if possible! She loved their fork and spoon canvases, but sadly they were out of budget and too big for her tiny kitchen. Anita created a more appropriately sized (and priced!) version with a canvas, carbon paper, and a black pastel. Anita says, “I had a lot of fun doing this project, and it looks really cute in the kitchen!”

Best of PB #7: Made-from-Scratch Mason Jar Chandelier

Mason Jar Chandelier

Grace from An Adams Thing created her own mason jar chandelier after falling in love with its catalog counterpart. She deserves a huge pat on the back for literally making her very own light fixture. I’m sure Grace’s chandelier catches the attention of all her visitors!

Best of PB #5: Vintage Breadboard Kitchen iPad Stand

I love the convenience of having tons of recipes right at my fingertips with the internet and electronic texts. What I don’t like is the idea of my pricey device lying on the counter where all kinds of destructive forces are at work. That’s where this tablet stand made by Angie and Colby from Angie’s Roost comes in handy! I love that it looks like a vintage breadboard, and would you believe it only cost Angie and Colby $5 to make???

Vintage “Refreshments” Sign

Back at Christmas time Tricia from Simplicity in the South turned the old brass kick plate from her front door into a vintage Christmas sign. Great repurpose, right? Well, it doesn’t stop there! Tricia used the reverse side of the kick plate to make a “Refreshments” sign for her kitchen. Come Christmas time she will just have to flip it back over for some super speedy decorating. Brilliant!

Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust made this gorgeous checkerboard butcher block from maple and oak as a Christmas gift. The hardwood board is finished with a special butcher block oil so it’s completely food safe. It turned out so beautifully, Kristen ended up making two more!

When good friends of Jen from House of Wood bought their first home, she built them this workbench-style console following plans from Ana White. The couple plans to use the console as a coffee bar in their breakfast nook. Talk about one awesome housewarming gift! The Pottery Barn inspiration comes close to the $2000 mark, while Jen built hers for only $65!

Faux Stainless Steel Alphabet Magnets

faux stainless steel alphabet magnets

You are probably no stranger to the brightly colored alphabet fridge magnets that are a staple in homes with young children. They are great for keeping the kiddos entertained in the kitchen but, let’s be honest, don’t exactly add to the décor. Rebecca from The Crafted Sparrow jazzed up a set of letters with some [...Read More]

Painted Berry Container

When Sherry from Pondered Primed Perfected laid eyes on some stoneware berry containers from Anthropologie, she was taken back to childhood days of picking berries with her family. But why spend $14 on a container that is identical to the free cardboard pint berries come in? Sherry held onto her cash, and instead painted and [...Read More]
