Catalog Look for Less:Pottery Barn Decor Inspiration & $3 Storage Ottoman

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to participate in a collaboration video over on YouTube. The host, Juani from Juani’s House, asked us to create a DIY from inspiration we’ve seen in a catalog or in one of our favorite stores for less.Collaborations on YouTube are always up my alley because I get to complete projects that I haven’t completed or something I’ve been wanting to do.

My inspiration came from a recent Pottery Barn Catalog I picked up while visiting a few weeks ago.From the catalog I took away 4 elements away from the catalog and here’s how I mimicked them in our family room.

 

1. Throw pillows (See Video)

2. Faux Fur Throw (See Video)
3. Ottoman

4. Mercury vases

The DIY that I created was the ottoman. Well, actually my husband created it.We had some free wood in the garage along with an ottoman top that I bought at a garage sale this summer for 3 bucks!My hubby did an amazing job on it and I stained it with some leftover stain we had from doing the kids floors. Watch the video below and let me know how well I did with taking the Pottery Barn elements and adding them to our family room.

5 Uses for Chalkboard Labels and STUFF

One of the things that draws my attention while out shopping and will get me to by it for a dolla… chalkboard anything!  Anything!  Chalkboard labels, tags, boards, paint, markers, paper and the list will go on.  They make them and I’ll buy them.

What I love most about chalkboard stuff is that they are multifaceted.  You can use them in so many ways and continue to think of more ways to use them.  I’d like to share with you 5 uses for all things chalkboard.

Labeling Stuff: Well, duh.  Let’s not just label the ordinary things, let’s label those things that we didn’t think to label.  We’ve all added labels to our spice jars, but let’s not forget to label those containers that we can’t see in.  Not everyone in our home knows where the sugar is or the rice that’s stored in the non-translucent containers. So, let’s label them.

Give a Cohesive Look To The Non- Cohesive:  Let’s say you have some mix match bottles or containers that’re located in the kitchen on the counter.  In order to bring these items that don’t look like the other together, add chalkboard labels and voila they’re now intransigent.

Scriptures or Quotes:  Looking to add some inspiration or encouragement to a space?  Add some chalkboard signs with your favorite scriptures or quotes.

Of course this sign is on a massive scale, but you can go as small or large as you’d like.

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner Parties: Having a party or friends over for lunch?  Knowing that I’m a bit bias on the chalkboard stuff, but they add the cutest touch.

Paint Something With Chalkboard Paint: Want to get creative?  Paint a wall, desk, jar or whatever floats your boat with chalkboard paint.  Adds a creative element to any space in your home or office.

Are you into chalkboard labels, tags, boards or paint too?  If so, what do you like using chalkboard labels for?  Hope I’ve given you some ways to use them or sparked your creativity or interest when it comes to these functional labels.  These things are so fun to use , but like I said before I’m a bit bias when it comes to anything chalkboard.

Vintage Door: Roadside Find Checked Off My Want List

Come over here you piece of trash and I’ll love you.  Sunday after picking up my son from youth group, I rode by a house with some trash at the curb.  Immediately my dumpster diving eye keened in on this beauty.

Don’t judge a door by it’s former life!

Would you believe this has been on my vintage want list? Yes, it has and as I waited patiently I found it at someone’s curb.  Just like that.  After seeing it at the curb I went home to get my hubby because my son isn’t cool like that and he came back with me to pick it up.

Now, there are so many things I can do with this, but of course I have to choose wisely. I’d love to make a dining room table out of it, but we have a dining room table already and my husband isn’t budging on selling ours. A kitchen island would blow it out the box, but our kitchen isn’t nearly large enough.

While I sit over here and ponder on what to do with it, I’ll keep you in suspense until it’s done.

Do you have anything on your roadside find want list?
