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.

Painted Stripe Oar Wall Décor

Krista of The Happy Housie turned ordinary clear varnished paddles from a sporting supply store into knock-off versions of the Oar Décor from Pottery Barn Kids as part of revamping her sons’ new shared bedroom space. I am sure it comes as no surprise that paint was all it took to make these paddles come to life. I totally love the bright pops of color against the crisp white planked wall.

DIY Twin Bed Fit for a Queen

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!

Can you believe Christmas is only a week away?!? Do you still have shopping to finish, gifts to wrap, and cookies to bake? Let’s keep things simple today then, shall we? Sam from The Lovebugs Blog created these fun and whimsical Christmas trees with just some rope and hot glue. She says, “This might be the world’s easiest craft project.  It took about 15 minutes to pull these trees together and only required a few materials.  It was low cost and has a big impact.”

If you read this morning’s feature that showcased an adorable play vanity built by the talented Jaime from That’s My Letter, you probably noticed the cutesy little stool with a gathered slipcover pictured with it. Yes, Jaime made it too, and so can you! Jaime modified plans from Ana White to build the stool from scrap wood and dug some fabric from her stash for the sweet little slipcover. I love that cover is removeable and can be washed because, let’s be honest, little girls and makeup can get a bit messy!

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.
