Silver Spray Painted Pinecones

Ashley from Simply Designing was shopping in West Elm when she saw a decorative bowl filled with silver pinecones. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time paying for pinecones.

Rustic Wood Wall Shelves with Metal Brackets

Carissa of Carissa Miss finished off her son’s nursery with a set of custom shelves above the changing table.

I love the combo of the rustic wood-stained shelf and glitzy metallic brackets and can’t think of a room (or even an entryway) where these wouldn’t add style and function!

Tree Stump to Metallic Side Table

Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs knew exactly what to do with a tree that had fallen down in her backyard – turn it into a shapely, hand-chiseled accent table! Sarah enlisted the help of her husband David, and the couple worked together to remove the bark, cut angles into the stump, sand it smooth, and finally finish it off with paint and glaze. Like Sarah, I love how the glaze brings out the detail of the wood!

Gold Leaf Patterned Pillows

Brynne of The Gathered Home loved the gold metallic pillow covers from West Elm and started wondering if it was possible to DIY pillows that had the same metallic luster. The idea of using gold leaf on fabric came to Brynne, and since she already had the supplies on hand, there was nothing to lose!
