Becky from Reinventing the Ordinary loved the look and functionality of a Pottery Barn storage bed for her daughter’s college room but needed a cheaper alternative. Surprisingly, college tuition doesn’t really leave an extra $1000 sitting in the bank for a bed! Becky created a fabulous $100 version with some beadboard, molding, and plywood that fit their needs (and budget) to perfection!
As most of us are probably aware, creativity is often accompanied by a mess. Lucy from Craftberry Bush decided to bring some of her creative clutter under control by making Anthropologie-inspired coiled cups to hold her art supplies. Lucy wrapped yarn around cording to create a long strand with alternating colors and then hot glued it around tin cans. Aren’t these so pretty? Who would think a pencil holder would ever add this much interest to a space?!?
