DIY POTTERY BARN-INSPIRED PINBOARD

Pottery Barn-Inspired Pinboard

A long time ago, I made an “inspiration board” of sorts and loved it, but as time went on, the needs for my office space changed, and so did my style. I didn’t get rid of the old one, though! My necklace collection was overtaking the top drawer of our bedroom dresser, so I ended up adding some cup hooks in order to turn my old office inspiration board into a new necklace storage solution for our closet. (I’m putting a reminder in my phone to post a photo of…

DIY BURLAP ART BOARDS

Let’s just deem this “Kids Week” because I’m back with a How To for the DIY art boards I made for Tiffany and Josh’s playroom makeover. This little DIY project was a little messy (I’ll get to that part in a minute) but it was totally easy and affordable. Obviously, these aren’t just for playrooms and kid’s art. One of these guys would be perfect in a kitchen or laundry room as a memo board to keep coupons, calendars, recipes, etc. It would…

Sometime last year, I saw these adorable reclaimed apothecary matchstick bottles (I even ended up featuring them on our 2013 holiday gift guide here).

The only thing is that they always seem to be out of stock. So, feeling…

You know when you have those projects that you start on and you’re all gung-ho on getting that sucker done, then an obstacle comes out of nowhere and you’re back at square one? Well, that’s sort of what happened when we decided to finally get around to tackling the half bathroom. We were all like, “This is what we’re going to do, we’re so excited! Yada, yada, yada…” and then, bam. An obstacle by way of an unforeseen wiring problem…

DIY TABLE CENTERPIECE

DIY Rustic Table Centerpiece // 7thhouseontheleft.com

In the middle of the breakfast bar in our kitchen, we have a wooden trough filled with faux grass that Ash picked up at HomeGoods a while back. It’s really a great piece, since it’s visually interesting, but still slim enough to allow us to work at the counter or eat breakfast while sitting at the bar. The problem is that the faux grass is just a little too “fresh” when fall and winter roll around. Since we love having…
