“Easy-As-Pie” Orb Chandelier

diy-orb-chandelier.jpg

Everyone loves a “first,” and this project just so happens to be Teryn from Verified Mom’s first Restoration Hardware knock off ever. It all began when Teryn set eyes on RH’s stunning crystal orb chandelier and knew there had to be a simple way to recreate it. Teryn says, “I’ve seen other complex tutorials, but this one is not!” Amazingly, Teryn was able to make this beauty in about an hour once all the planning was done, and she shares exactly how she pulled it off so you can make an “easy-as-pie” orb chandelier too!

Aged “Metal” Industrial Clock Makeover

Bliss of Bliss Ranch took the old clock from her wall and gave it a totally new look with some ingenuity and parts from the garage. The MDF frame looks amazingly like metal thanks to Bliss’ handiwork with paint. Now Bliss says she’s looking twice at the rest of the clocks in her house to see how she can morph them into something better too!

Industrial Wood Letters with Metal Trim

I am just loving this knock off from the gals over at Lolly Jane! Kelli wanted to recreate the look of vintage industrial letters for less than $15 PER letter. Yes, that gets pricey! Amazing, she got all the look of wood and metal without using wood and metal. I never would have guessed it, but the “wood” is simply patterned scrapbook paper and the “metal” silver glitter tape. That means scissors are the only tool needed! Nicely done, Ladies!

When Life Hands You a Bag of Driftwood, Make a Wreath!

Heather from New House New Home was out thrifting when she came across a bag full of driftwood for five dollars. Heather snatched it up knowing exactly what she’d make with it – a driftwood wreath just like the $100+ model sold at Restoration Hardware. It was as easy as firing up the hot glue gun and layering the pieces onto a wreath ring. I love the organic beauty of driftwood!

Stephanie of Simply Swider has been whipping her entryway into shape with an industrial chic makeover. A distressed wood and metal console table? Yes, please! A $695 price tag? Um, no… And why would you pay that much when you can build your own console from leftover butcher block and conduit piping – for under $50!

Reclaimed Wood and Metal Wall Shelves

When decorating a tiny bathroom, there is only so much storage and decorating space. Greg and Ashley from Seventh House on the Left solved this dilemma while renovating their half bath by adding shelving above the toilet. They opted for a Restoration Hardware-inspired wood and metal combination, using worn boards for the shelves and pipe for the brackets. Here’s what they have to say about their new shelves: “The shelves really help balance out the vanity wall on the opposite side, and we’re thrilled to have some storage to be able to showcase some pretty things.”
