Stenciled Burlap Lampshade

Traci from Beneath My Heart was flipping through her Pottery Barn Kids catalog when a burlap lampshade caught her eye. And… surprise! It wasn’t because it was exactly what she’d been looking for and knew she could make it for less. On the contrary, Traci had already created almost identical lampshades for her boys’ room three years prior! Pretty striking resemblance, eh? Traci can proudly say, “Pottery Barn copied me!” {Giggled}

Boston Subway Art

A close friend of Jeannine from The Concrete Cottage loved the Z Gallerie subway art and wanted to give it as a gift to her dad. When she asked if Jeannine could recreate it, she had a small list of requests: make it personalized, make it a bit less distressed, and make it for way cheaper than Z Gallerie’s! Done, done and done! Jeannnie was able to use her Silhouette, some paint, and a bit of chalk to create a one-of-a-kind gift that nearly brought her friend’s dad to tears!

Kate from Magic City Thistle loved the look of an oh-so-cute tray that resembles a supply cart but would never have the little cart on her coffee table without getting creative! Kate sourced a basic wooden tray from her local thrift store and revamped it with paint and four tiny grapevine wreath “wheels.” Doesn’t it make for the cutest display on her outdoor dining table?

Yes, the temperature today is in the thirties, but all the bunnies and eggs around make me feel like spring is on the horizon! Susan from Sunflower Hugs used materials she had on hand to create this burlap Easter flag with a bunny silhouette applique. Pottery Barn’s flag is already sold out, so Susan points out that you will have to DIY if you want to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Susan makes it easy on you with her tutorial!

You all know I have about of a love affair with stenciling. With the endless design options and potential for taking the ordinary to extraordinary, there’s a lot to love. One thing I am yet to try stenciling is a mirror, but Beth from Free Stylin’ does a fabulous job showing how it’s done. She used a large stencil to transform a cheapo door mirror into a stunning decorative piece. Amazingly, the pattern is almost identical to her Ballard inspiration!
