Chalkboard Floor Desk

Larissa from The House on Harrison wanted to get a special gift for her niece’s first birthday. She thought a floor desk from Pottery Barn Kids was super cute but most definitely not worth the expensive, especially when you have a cabinet door from a trash heap on hand! With a few leftover project boards and some paint, Larissa turned the old door into a chalkboard version of the desk for only $10. Not only is it too cute for words but also coordinates with her niece’s room!

Treat-or-Treat Sign

Lorraine from South Meets Southwest created this Halloween sign as a craft prize for Bunco night with the girls. (And let me say that I love the idea of everyone bringing a craft to exchange as a prize!) She used a ballpoint pen to leave the imprint for her text and then painted it in. Lorraine says, “I went home with a very cute craft from the party, but I was still a little sad to have to part with my Halloween sign.” Looks like another sign’s in the making!
