NOEL Wall Décor

After receiving lots of love for her Pottery Barn-inspired NOEL sign last Christmas, Richella from Imparting Grace shares the simple steps she took to create it. While it may not be iron like the inspiration, Richella’s pretty letters cost only $10 to make. And, quite honestly, finished with some oil-rubbed bronze paint they look just like the real deal!

Bronze Owl Figurines

Jessica from Mad In Crafts saw some cute owls that would be a nice addition to her fall décor; however, they weren’t $39.50 cute. Especially not when Jessica could turn some dollar store figurines into her own rustic owl décor.

Scissor Wall Decor

I recently shared Tara from Tales of a Trophy Wife’s love for large notions as décor for her craft room.  Along with her oversized buttons, Tara wall also features a big ol’ spool of thread, a jumbo tomato pin cushion, and these ginormous scissors inspired by Pottery Barn. With a few coats of oil rubbed […Read More]

Decorative Gear Art

Lori from Mama with a Dash of DIY Drama has been obsessed with the artifact gear art from Restoration Hardware since it were first introduced. It almost seemed like a personal challenge to see if she could locate similar pieces. Lori did just that from the scrap heap of a tractor dealership. After degreasing and […Read More]
