Build a Rustic Wood Twin Bed

Amanda from The Contractor Chronicles whipped this beautiful twin bed up for her son while her husband was away on a trip. It’s Amanda first build by herself and gave her some much needed confidence to pick up the power tools more often. Amanda followed plans from Ana White, making just a few changes along the way since she doesn’t have a Kreg Jig. I’d say this is pretty awesome for a first time build!

Do you like the idea of creating Pottery Barn-inspired Easter décor in only five minutes? Angie of The Country Chic Cottage shows how it’s done at Darice. Angie simply applied self-adhesive stencils to ceramic eggs and colored in the design with a paint pen. The intricate details look so fancy and elegant but are super easy to create.

Bren of Bren Did created her own Easter bunny banner using printed cardstock, white grosgrain ribbon, and minky faux fur trim. It is an easy and adorable project– all for the bargain price of $5.30. The great news is that you can multiple your Easter décor at a bargain price, but be careful… Bren warns that these garlands multiply like rabbits. She went a little bunny crazy and made four different variations!

Upcycled Light Up Star Wall Décor

Ya’ll know I am a sucker for an upcycle project, so it’s no wonder I totally love this DIY from Morena of Morena’s Corner. Morena had been trying to figure out how to recreate a  light up star from Pottery Barn Kids, and the answer came in an unlikely form – a Valentine’s candy box. Once Morena got that star-shaped box from her mom, she knew she finally had the supplies she needed to make her own wall décor. What better excuse to wolf down a box of chocolates {Wink}?

Krista of The Happy Housie created some simple wall shelves for her boys’ bedroom to store their beloved and ever-growing collection of books. In addition to providing storage, these ledges put the books on display and turn them into artwork. Krista says, “With a few cuts of wood, some screws, and some paint, you can create DIY book display shelves for $5 each rather than the $59 per shelf you would pay at PB Kids.”

Melissa of Two It Yourself created her own rendition of Pottery Barn Kids’ chalkboard frames by utilizing the matting from old frames she had. Melissa turned the mats into a rotating gallery wall for her kids’ creations with chalkboard paint, mini clothespins, and baker’s twine. The matting forms a little frame around the artwork and, thanks to the chalkboard paint, can be labeled with a cute caption!
