We got a King bed which meant we needed a new headboard! Our house is a 1960s brick ranch with little rooms. Getting a King bed means our room is literally a BEDroom with space for a small dresser, two bedside tables, and the bed. But we’ve wanted a King bed for a while so it’s totally worth it! We don’t have the space for a big bed frame or headboard so we were limited in out headboard search. We decided we needed a simple bedframe with a headboard that wouldn’t stick out too much since space is a premium. Continue reading “$100 Upholstered Velvet King Sized Headboard”
I love marquee lights and wanted to use them in my wedding decor but don’t like the price tag attached to them. Thanks to 1,000+ Pins on Pinterest, I found inspiration to make my own Marquee lights. These bad boys are 23.5″ tall, took about three hours total to make, and cost $40 for the set. I’ve seen Marquee lights on Etsy for $65/letter and definitely didn’t want to pay $260 for these.
In two days and with $50 cash, I made this statement wall art.
In 30 minutes, I made this headboard for our guest room and it only cost me $16.
My latest and greatest project is these copper plated decorative spheres. I made them for $7 total and they took about 30 minutes to make. I got the Pinsperation from the blog, Retropolitanhip which gives a great step-by-step tutorial. She used galvanized steel, I used copper plated steel but the steps were very similar.
DIY Large Wood Frame
My building manager offered to paint an accent wall so I took the opportunity to make my fireplace pop and my mantle more pronounced. A large empty frame took some serious real estate on the wall. I couldn’t find an inexpensive one so I made this for about $13. (I also made the stocking hangers and re-vamped the vase and sticks. Details on those to come!)
I’ve seen a whole bunch of Pins on Pinterest for “Kate Spade inspired storage boxes” and thought I’d try it myself. It was easy and looks great! I made one box for about $4 which is a whole lot better than $54 for three boxes from Kate Spade.
I made myself a wreath! It cost about $8 and took 20 minutes.

Popsicle stick wall art – arrows
I found a solution for the hallway wall – popsicle sticks! I saw this post, on the blog Be Still Life, about popsicle stick art and gave it a go myself. She painted the sticks then hung them, I stained the sticks then stuck them. The whole project cost me about $3 because I had a majority of the materials.
