A Chalkboard Wall Letter to Write About (and On!)

chalkboard letter

Sharon from The Blue Willow House has been decorating her grandson’s bedroom at her house with a Pottery Barn Kids-inspired nautical theme. One of the things she loved about the inspiration room was a chalkboard initial that serves as both wall décor and a fun place for doodles. Sharon created her own with a wooden letter, craft paint, and a sample of chalkboard coating she already had. This is a fun combination of two popular trends in the décor world, wall initials and decorative chalkboards.

Large Fold-n-Go Wood Cubby

I recently shared the foldable and portable caddy that Michelle from Chalkboard Blue fashioned after Pottery Barn Kids’ numbered wall cubbies. The smaller design was perfect for holding utensils and other fixings for summer barbeques. Well, that’s not all, Folks!  Michelle also created a larger version of her fold-n-go wooden tote that sports a handle, hinges, and a latch just like its little brother. Michelle says, “I love how this tote can be folded up and used to transport items or stretched out along a wall or closed up again for storage!”

Build Your Own Kids Armoire

Here’s the latest DIY furniture addition to her daughter’s big girl room from Whitney at Shanty 2 Chic. Whitney followed plans from Ana White to construct this gorgeous armoire that is jam packed with storage. The inside has both shelves and drawers so there’s plenty of room for clothes, toys, and even a television. My favorite part is that you can simply shut the doors to hide away any mess. That’s my favorite way to clean {wink}!

Painted Chevron Rug with Perfect Zig Zags

When it comes to décor, Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture likes to keep things on the neutral side. However, she decided to shake things up in her living room with a chevron rug (just to make sure she wasn’t erring on the “old lady” side). Elisha found a $20 rug at Wal-mart that was perfect for her experiment. She taped off her chevron pattern and painted away. Using her technique, Elisha had only crisp, clean zig-zags and zero bleed!

Super Simple Nautical Swing Shelf

Mable at Lilato Laka has been hard at work on her son’s nautical-theme nursery and added to its charm with a rope shelf. Mable simple drilled holes into the corners of a shelf she already had, tied on some sisal rope, and then hung it from robe hooks on the wall. It’s the special little touches like Mable’s shelf that really make a space come together!

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

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.
