Jumbo Watercolor Paint Palette Wall Décor

I love harboring my kids’ creativity and think an important part of that is creating a special space for them to display their work. Courtney of Crafts by Courtney made an adorable wall for showcasing her kiddo’s creativity with this jumbo paint palette and clipboard gallery wall. Courtney was able to make the paint palette for around $20 using a board and bottles of craft paint. It is perfect for adding color to a space and making a statement on a long wall.

Allison of Refunk My Junk wanted to give her little astronaut’s room a fun space-themed makeover but was struggling in the wall art department. Pottery Barn Kids came to the rescue with inspiration, and Allison morphed their constellation wall mural and rug to create her own DIY wall art. Allison even outdid Pottery Barn by making her stars actually light up with white Christmas lights. What kid wouldn’t go crazy for glowing wall décor?

Custom Wood Wall Monograms for Less

Whether placed on a bag, a pillow, or even a wall, a monogram adds a flourish that’s undeniable. Anne from Creative Life Blog wanted to bring this flourish to her bar area and her daughter’s nursery, just not at $139 a piece. She found a more affordable option in ordering custom unfinished wood monograms and then simply spray painting them the desired color. She says, “Not only was I able to make two monograms for less than the price of one, but mine is larger!!!”

Paint Your Own Chalkboard Frames

Arien from One Krieger Chick came across a chalkboard frame in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and immediately thought, “How easy would that be to make!” As easy as a couple of coats of chalkboard paint – that’s how easy! I love how Arien had her boys write their own names on the frames for a personal touch. Now she has wall art in her living room and pictures of her darling boys to boot!

Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic wanted to build a girly bed for her daughter and found just what she was looking for in Ana White’s tall panel headboard. Ana whipped up plans for a twin version with a footboard and side rails that are nice and high to provide plenty of storage space underneath. All that beautiful molding reminds me of a throne! Just like Ana says, this bed certainly is “fit for a queen.”

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, Kristen from Down Home Inspiration is in full-on holiday-crafting mode. She loved Pottery Barn Kid’s envelope chair backers, but $26? For felt? Kristen knew she cure couldn’t justify the expense and instead grabbed some quarter sheets of felt and embroidery floss from the craft store and made three adorable chair backers for her kids – for less than a dollar each! Her kids love filling the pouches with sweet little notes to each other!

Organize Art Supplies in Style with Wall Cubbies

Carla of Blueberry Junkie is in the process of revamping her kids’ playroom, and one of the things she wanted to incorporate was an art area. Carla was challenged with neatly storing and organizing the art supplies without making them out-of-sight and, thus, out-of-mind for her kids. That’s where Ana White’s plans for numbered wall cubbies come in! Carla used scrap pallet wood from her garage to build her own cubbies in just a couple of hours. I love how inviting it is with the paper roll underneath!
