Gemstone Sharpie Wall Art

gem-wall-art.jpg

Lidy from Hello Lidy was inspired to create gem wall art for a corner of her room after spying some striking mirrors from West Elm. Lidy easily mimicked the look of the precious stones with a piece of foam board and a Sharpie. Here’s what Lidy says about her new DIY artwork: “I think it’s super fun and really modernizes that corner of the room. It’s really easy to remove from the wall and then reapply somewhere else if I get too tired of it! Thanks to West Elm, I have some lovely new wall art to look at!”

Best of PB #8: French Script Lampshade with a Sharpie

French script lampshade

Jeannine of The Concrete Cottage had a plain Target lamp shade lying around and decided to add a little pizzazz to it with some French script images and a fin tip Sharpie. The end product however, turned out to be a pretty close knock off to a Pottery Barn shade… who knew! Jeannine’s lampshade looks so amazing that it’s hard to believe it’s actually a very simply process!

Julia from Cuckoo 4 Design loved the look of a graphic “Bamboo” wallpaper and had the pattern sitting on her desk for months waiting for its grand debut somewhere in her home. A thrift store desk/bar that Julia revamped became the perfect candidate, and she set out to recreate the design with one of her favorite tools – a Sharpie! Doesn’t it look fabulous?!?

Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict had been eyeing Pottery Barn’s monogrammed serving boards for quite some time and finally found a way to create her own version for only $5! Debbie picked up a well-used cutting board from the thrift store and gave it a whole new look with a monogram, wood stain, and wooden legs. This is a great gift idea to keep in mind for friends who love to entertain!

Burlap Magnet Board

Amy from Home Sweet Thrifty Home turned a piece of leftover sheet metal into a stylish magnet board by covering it with burlap and adding a stenciled design with permanent marker. I love the fact that this is magnetic, so you can hang photos without poking holes through them. And would you believe it only cost Amy $5 to make?!?

Sharpie Stenciled Pillow

DIY Stencil Pillow (2)

Rather than purchasing a $100+ pillow in genuine Kravet Windsor Smith Riad fabric, Virginia from LiveLoveDIY decided to make her own stencil and use a Sharpie to create the same look. I love the interest the bold design adds to the space, and a few bucks for a designer look-a-like pillow is definitely something to get excited about!
