Savor the hard-won patina of old wooden crates by converting them into stylish furnishings. Turn one on its end -- instant end table! Or add a cushioned top to a crate to create a cozy footstool. To fashion the top, glue two layers of foam to a piece of plywood and wrap in a pretty fabric, securing the fabric to the board with a staple gun. Attach wooden stretchers across the crate opening to form a support ledge for the cushion./ by savannah

Paint a mirror frame with chalkboard paint. What a cool idea! Paint a dresser to match and then lean the mirror against the wall on top of the dresser to make the set look like one piece. The height of the mirror will draw the eye toward the ceiling making your room appear larger.    Designer's Tip: Prime the dresser with magnetic paint if you want to attach permission slips, tickets, or other loose paper. Paint over the magnetic paint with two by kerry.fitzpatrick1

To create a member of this colorful menagerie, cut a circle 4 to 7 inches wide from card stock, then cut a pie slice from the circle. Roll the circle into a cone and secure it with glue dots. Cut out card stock ears. Attach them opposite the seam with tacky glue. Add white office sticker eyes and glue on a pom-pom nose. Draw details with marker. To hang, glue a small rectangle of card stock to the top inside of the cone, fold the flap down, and tack it to a wall. by phyllis

Wreath mobile: First, attach rope to three or four evenly spaced points along the wreath. Depending on how low the wreath is meant to hang, cut the rope to size, then attach to the ceiling or outside beam. Add decoration around the top of the wreath and suspend embellishments from the bottom for a layered effect. by adrian

To create a similar piece, you’ll likely have to visit a few antique stores and thrift shops in search of a frame to re-purpose. Then, all you’ll need is some lace trim (generally found at any craft store; I personally frequent Jo-Ann’s) and a way to attach the trim to the frame (depending on the material of the frame). by Sadie Williams

Create a collage frame from multiple frames & make your own design. Used gorilla glue to attach together. Then sand and paint whatever color you would like. I just used the flat paint sample from Home Depot for $2+. Easy and personalized :) just add a saw hook or two to hang on wall :) by divyaa

Hanging Bookshelf Ryan and I made out of pallet wood! We did the lush cut for the frame pieces to fit together nicely, and just added in the actual shelves by wedging, then screwing them in. Slightly sanded the wood & added one coat of wood stain (to keep the rustic look). We bought burlap from Wal-Mart ($3/yard) and used it as the "backsplash" by stapling it to the back. Cheap, cute, and fun way to add something fun to a bare wall! by Hercio Dias
