Kids Art Boards

Laura from Inspiration for Moms was in the process of remodeling her son’s bedroom when she stumbled upon utility boards from Pottery Barn Kids. Laura loved the idea of adding a creative area to her son’s room… just not at Pottery Barn prices. Instead, she was able to make two boards for half the cost of one of their boards! Laura’s son is happy, and so is her wallet!

Decorative Life Preserver

Pottery Barn Kids knock off life preserver

Megan from Our Pinteresting Family found tons of inspiration from the summer Pottery Barn Kids catalog for a nautical-themed bridal shower she has been planning. One item was a decorative life preserver that was priced at a whopping $69! That seems pretty pricey to me, especially when you can jazz up an inflatable tube from the dollar store like Megan did. All she had to do was add for strips of fabric with frayed edges to replicate the look. I bet the hardest part was blowing it up!

Megan from Our Pinteresting Family shares a fun idea for incorporating a little summer magic into your décor. Megan whipped up this cute mermaid sign for her daughter’s room from a wooden plaque and paint she already had on hand.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Art

When Mandy from We Three Mothers wanted The Very Hungry Caterpillar artwork for her son’s bedroom but couldn’t afford the price tag, she teamed up with her son to DIY for less. They simply purchased a canvas and some tissue paper and then spent the morning cutting and gluing together. Kids are generally pretty oblivious to wall décor, but you know Mandy’s son will always love this special art he made with his mommy!

Kids Train Table

Like couches in living rooms, activity tables are staple furnishings for playrooms. However, they can be quite pricey, especially considering the fact that kids aren’t exactly gentle on furniture. Janette from Style with Cents shares how to make a table that is TWICE as big and HALF the cost of one of Pottery Barn Kid’s most popular activity tables using MDF and fence posts. I can’t say it any better than Janette – “That’s what you call WINNING, my friends.”

Wood Twin Bed

With a baby who is no longer baby, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic knew it was time to convert her daughter’s room from a nursery to a big girl room. First up, was a big girl bed that Whitney literally whipped up in one day following plans from Ana White. Whitney’s favorite part about this bed is that it’s built to house a trundle underneath. All I can say is that I am blown away by her mad skills and can’t wait to see how the room comes together!

Personalized Step Stool

With two young children, I can attest to the fact that a stool is a necessity in the bathroom and can also be helpful if you’ve a little chef in the kitchen. While plastic stools get the job done, they just aren’t nearly as pleasing to the eye as a personalized wood stool like this one from Jaime at That’s My Letter. Jaime followed plans from Ana White to build her stool for next to nothing using scraps she had on hand. The hand painted personalization is just the icing on the cake!

“Brother” Wall Sign

One of the perks of DIY is the ability to customize an item exactly how you want it. You want dark brown instead of black? You got it! That’s exactly what spurred on the creation of this wall sign by Aimee from The Vintage Estate. Aimee used paint and a contact paper stencil to easily replicate the plaque her client wanted in the exact color she wanted. I gotta say that I love this sweet little sign!
