Vintage Locker Baskets

Linda from It All Started with Paint is a big fan of shiny metals in her décor. Generally, the more sparkle and glitter… the better! However, that wasn’t the look she was going for in her dining room. So Linda transformed some shiny chrome locker baskets she ordered online into vintage baskets that appear to have stood the tests of time using just paint and about 15 minutes of time!

Easter Egg Branches Centerpiece

Andrea from Queen of Kings fell in love with a lovely Easter display of cherry blossom branches and hanging eggs but couldn’t justify spending an exorbitant amount of money on some fake eggs. That’s where a little creativity and craft store supplies came into play! Andrea stretched her money by doctoring up paper mache eggs with paint, ribbon, and lettering from the computer. She got almost the exact look of her inspiration, but it only cost her $7!

Ann wanted to repurpose old framed art into décor for her bathroom and knew just where to turn – Deb from Lake Girl Paints. Deb took apart the frames and matting and gave the pieces new life as hand-painted word art. Here’s from Deb: “So a fresh recycle will bring trendy style to Ann’s bath. It sure makes you think about old things in a new way.”

Yes, the temperature today is in the thirties, but all the bunnies and eggs around make me feel like spring is on the horizon! Susan from Sunflower Hugs used materials she had on hand to create this burlap Easter flag with a bunny silhouette applique. Pottery Barn’s flag is already sold out, so Susan points out that you will have to DIY if you want to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Susan makes it easy on you with her tutorial!

Becky from Posh Pink Giraffe shares my love for repurposing trash and recyclable items. She finally found a use for all the caps she’d been saving from her Pillsbury roll containers in these beaded votive holders. The caps make a great platform for the candles to rest on and provide the base for the pipe cleaner and bead framework. Becky’s candle holders have all the sparkle and luster of her Pottery Barn inspiration without the cost!

Hand Painted Market Sign

Heidi from All That Brings Joy was inspired by all the different hand painted, antique looking signs she’s seen around Pottery Barn for the last year or two to finally tackle her own. She decided to make one for her kitchen and went with the word market. With the little amount of wood and paint required for this project, Heidi was able to do it without spending any money.

Mary Anne from Purposedly Reinvented was in need of some baskets to tame the media mess that had taken over her built-in console. Some wire baskets from Pottery Barn sent her straight into “knock off mode.” With the help of IKEA and a trusty can of spray paint, Mary Anne got the same look for way less than cash!
