I know we all love a little DIY wall art, and Sarah from Thrifty Décor Chick delivers with this fab Pottery Barn inspired project! In need of a piece of wall décor for an awkward wall in her living room, Sarah used wood scraps and leftover paint to create this rustic wood art for only $15. Besides saving money, creating your own artwork like Sarah’s allows you to customize it to your liking. Sarah says, “The size is PERFECT for that spot, and the colors work perfectly in our family room!”

Wire Storage Basket

Courtenay from The Creek Line House noticed something strangely familiar about the organizer baskets that were in the super old freezer she inherited with her house. They looked an awful lot like some pricey baskets Pottery Barn sells. All it took was a little craft paint to cover up the white plastic handles, and Courtenay had her very own trendy wire baskets!

Sweater Pillows

If you follow me at Infarrantly Creative, you know about my recent endeavor to help a family rebuild after a painful period in their lives by creating a home they truly love. One way I pinched pennies on pillows was by repurposing a couple of sweaters. Sweaters are seriously a dime a dozen at Goodwill, and if you reuse some filling from old pillows like I did, you can make your own cozy pillows for practically nothing.

Floor Standing Candle Pillar

Candle pillars can be crazy expensive, but Melissa from The Happier Homemaker found a way to make her own Goliath-sized floor pillar for less than $10. The trick was in upcycling a broken coat rack that was dumpster bound. Melissa just had to replace the top of the coat rack with a circular piece of wood and give the whole shebang a spray with some paint. One coat rack could make an entire set of tabletop pillars or one tall floor pillar like Melissa’s.

Clock Face Plates

Pottery Barn carried some wonderful vintage clock plates during the holiday season of 2009.  Unfortunately for Susan from Between Naps on the Porch they sold out quickly and never came back.  “So, what do you do when you’re craving Pottery Barn Clock Plates and there are none to be had?” Susan asks. I think we all know the answer to that {wink}! Susan happened upon an ironing board cover with various clock faces and used the fabric to transform a set of clear plates into her own PB replicas. Following Susan’s steps you could use any fabric that fits your fancy to give some clear plates a whole new look!

Liz from Hoosier Homemade had been dreaming and waiting for a rustic PB-style office desk for three long years. That dream finally came to fruition when she spotted some barn doors with a free sign sitting on the side of the road. Liz’s husband built custom cabinets and then cut the barn doors to fit on top. Here’s from Liz: “Even though we dreamed, planned and built the desk ourselves, I never imagined how awesome it would be… My days in my office, just got a little longer!”

The Halloween projects just keep a comin’! That gives you plenty of time to gather some bottles and turn them into skull vases following Angie’s tutorial at The Country Chic Cottage. Angie got her old milk bottles at the thrift store for a bargain. With some spray paint and foam skull cutouts, they will be a great addition to her Halloween mantel. She says, “I love how they are scary yet elegant enough to display in my home.”

Dollar Store Tiled Mirror

Heather from Dollar Store Crafts shares how you can create a Pottery Barn inspired mirror for only $10. Sounds pretty good, huh? But wait… there’s more! It also requires no tools. Heather attached together small framed mirrors from the dollar store (of course!) with duct tape and glue to create a larger multi-panel mirror. It doesn’t get any cheaper than this for a generously-size mirror! Plus, you can easily customize the size of your mirror by adjusting how many mirrors you use.
