Trash-to-Treasure Fabric Magnet Board

knock-off-Mackenzie-Childs-enamel-board

Amy from Joyful Daisy just loves MacKenzie Childs’ whimsical furniture and home accents; however, many of the prices are deal breakers! This trash-to-treasure magnet board with magnets only cost Amy $10 for the tack and duck tape. Everything else she had on hand, including the old baking sheet that makes the board magnetic. Here’s what Amy has to say about her DIY memo board: “It is a very simple project that can be done in an afternoon and will add so much happiness to your décor and create a functional place to hang favorite photos and momentos. This is also a great gift idea!”

Turn an Old Window into a Character-Rich Mirror

Carissa of Carissa Miss shares at Country Chic Paint how she turned a couple of old windows into beautiful paned wall mirrors. It was as simple as giving the windows a quick coat of paint and wax and then adding the mirrors, which were Carissa’s only expense. Like Carissa, I love the character of the old window, especially that rusted latch!

Upcycled Light Up Star Wall Décor

Ya’ll know I am a sucker for an upcycle project, so it’s no wonder I totally love this DIY from Morena of Morena’s Corner. Morena had been trying to figure out how to recreate a  light up star from Pottery Barn Kids, and the answer came in an unlikely form – a Valentine’s candy box. Once Morena got that star-shaped box from her mom, she knew she finally had the supplies she needed to make her own wall décor. What better excuse to wolf down a box of chocolates {Wink}?

Umbrella Basket to Wood and Wire Accent Table

Heather of Twin Dragonfly Designs has found a lot to love in Target’s home décor section this season and says it would all look absolutely beautiful in her home. Now Target may be on the cheap side compared to Pottery Barn and friends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t DIY for less! Heather found an accent table with a wood top and wire base she loved, just not for $99. She was able to recreate it for only twelve dollars using a umbrella basket she simply flipped over and free cable spool ends from Home Depot. I love the way Heather thinks!

Ugly Canvas to Subway Sign Art

As soon as Aimee from The Vintage Estate came across some ugly canvases, she knew they’d be perfect for replicating the pricey subway signs she’d been eyeing from Restoration Hardware. All it took was some paint and handmade stencils for Aimee to give the canvases new life. It just goes to show that you have to use a little imagination in the thrift store aisles and see beyond what is to what could be!

Faux Capiz Shell Chandelier from Wax Paper

Would you believe this gorgeous chandelier is made out of just wax paper??? Yep, that’s right – wax paper! Jenn from A Home in the Making used an old lamp shade from Goodwill as the structure for her chandy and then attached strings of wax paper circles. While cutting and sewing 2,640 circles may seem crazy tedious and time consuming, Jenn guarantees this is not a hard project and will save you a pretty penny from costly capiz shell pendants. Jen says, “If you love this light, the cost alone is worth it.”

Adina from Simply Country Life says you should think twice before throwing away your old jars and repurpose them instead. Adina was inspired to embellish gallon-size pickle jars with twine and pinecones for a festive Christmas candle holder. This is such a simple fix for a plain glass jar and can easily be modified for different holidays and occasions.
