Jen from Girl in the Garage is excited to finally have some wall art hanging in her bedroom. She purchased a couple of original art pieces while visiting Paris last fall and then saw a wire Bonjour sculpture from Anthropologie that would fit beautifully with them. Jen knew she could beat the $48 price tag and made her own version for just $4 using some wire from the craft store. Jen says her wire wall art was so simple to make, and I love how it can easily be customized to any name, word, or phrase!

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!
