Today’s gift idea is for the little ladies in the house! Jaime from That’s My Letter teamed up with Ana White to build “the cutest little vanity with a drawer and mirror built just the right height for pint-sized girls.” I love all the details like the corbels, stair baluster legs, and crystal knob that make this vanity so sweet and girly. I know my daughter would go gaga over it!

Have a Star Wars aficionado in your life? Melissa from 320 Sycamore created an amazing piece of illuminated Death Star artwork for her Star Wars-loving boys. That’s right… it really lights up! Melissa shows how easy it is to make your own with a piece of particle board, a high-quality print from Staples, and, of course, lights! She says this is the perfect time to tackle this project since Christmas lights are in full supply.

Changing Table and Dresser That Grows With Baby

Following plans from Ana White, Whitney at Shanty 2 Chic built this changing table and dresser for her oldest daughters’ former babysitter who is now all grown up and having a baby of her own. How sweet is that?!? The three large drawers offer plenty of storage space for diapers, wipes, swaddling blankets, and the like. I love how easily this piece of furniture can transition to a dresser when diaper changes are a thing of the past.

Turn a Coffee Table into a Kids Art Table

Laura of The Experimental Home had always wanted an activity table with a built-in roll of paper for her kids’ playroom. However, when Laura actually started decorating the space,  $200 and up seemed like a lot more money than when she was just dreaming about it. Laura decided to make her own out of an old coffee table instead. She spent around $15 on a cafe curtain rod, a roll of paper, and some big paper clips and about 15 minutes assembling the table. Sounds like a much wiser investment for a table that will undoubtedly see quite a few scribble marks in its lifetime!

My artistic daughter would go crazy over this!

Oversized Vintage Flashcard Art

Our playroom is the first thing guests see as soon as they walk into our home. In an effort to spruce things up a bit, I have been giving the space a little TLC and making some changes, including knock-off wall art. Yesterday on Infarrantly Creative, I shared how I created these larger-than-life vintage flashcards. I love the clean look as well as the fact that they are humongo and take up a good bit of wall space on the cheap. Woot woot!

Dancing Skeleton Halloween Garland

I know I am not alone when I say I love the dollar store. There are all sorts of hidden treasures in there. Sharon from The Blue Willow House found one of those treasures when she stumbled upon a plastic moveable skeleton that reminded her of a cute garland she’d been eyeing from Pottery Barn Kids. Sharon scooped up five packages and strung the dancing skeletons together in front of her fireplace. They look mighty happy about Sharon’s savings!
