Beveled Edge Mirror Makeover

Chris of Just a Girl had been drooling over some beveled-edge mirrors from Pottery Barn for what felt like years. She says, “They sparkle and glitz like the stars in heaven, and I’ve wanted them to be mine for a long time.” Chris’ torment over the dreamy mirrors finally ended when she found a pair of mirrors on clearance at Hobby Lobby that needed a little love. Chris did a quick fix by switching out the front panels and now has her own sparkly and glitzy mirrors for a fraction of the cost!

Square Coffee Table with Turned Legs

Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic fell hard for a table from Pottery Barn with a planked wood top, large bottom shelf, and thick turned legs and had to have something like it. She enlisted the help of Ana White to draw up the plans and got to building! A wood company kindly created special legs just for Ashley’s table, and the exciting part is we can all order them. Like Ashley says, they totally make the table!

Old Window to Multipanel Mirror

The talented Sarah of Sarah M. Dorsey Designs recently completed my favorite kind of project – a revamp and a knock-off all rolled into one! Sarah took an old window and turned it into a gorgeous multipanel wall mirror. How’d she do it? Spray paint! Sarah says, “ The Looking Glass spray paint has a beautiful reflective quality – it’s hard to believe that it came out of a spray can.”

Jennifer from Decorated Chaos was craving the cozy and luxurious feel of fur for these cold winter days, but a girl has to stick to her budget! However, when Jennifer came across a yard of fuzzy faux fur in the clearance bin for only $3, it was a deal she couldn’t pass up. Jennifer turned that fur into a no-sew accent pillow that satisfies her need for all things warm and snuggly. I feel warmer just looking at it!

Most designers will tell you one sure fire way to freshen up a space on the fly is with fresh flowers or greenery. Vidya from What’s Ur Home Story added fresh greenery to her holiday décor by creating a magnolia wreath out of leaves she collected outside. The best part of decorating with natural elements like leaves and pine is that they are not only beautiful but FREE!

If you are looking for a cheap and easy last-minute Christmas gift, this is it! Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic bedazzled some chipboard letters and peace signs by simply coating them with glitter spray paint. I love that this gives a beautiful finish and is a less-mess option compared to regular glitter. Plus, think of all the friends and family you could make gifts for from one $3 alphabet set!
