How To Make a Knock-Off CB2-Inspired Modern Flower Pot

Make a Knock Off Crate and Barrel Inspired Modern PlanterI have a multi-pocket file folder, that I’m pretty sure I’ve had since my college days, that I store ripped out pages from catalogs and magazines. Call it an ‘I Want My House To Look Like This’ book or a ‘Someday When I Have Lots Of Time, I Will Make’ book. Whatever its name, this beat-up file folder houses all sorts of torn-out inspiration, including a little gem of a unique modern planter from Crate & Barrel (CB2, to be exact).

There’s nothing like a good knock-off challenge! See how I created my own version of a CB2-inspired modern flower pot. (Scroll down to bottom of post for a comparison!)

How To Make Flowery Front Door Decor Using Plastic Nursery Pots

Make Flower Decor Using Plastic Nursery PotsIf you were to come up my driveway, tucked in next to the garbage can, you would see two large stacks of those black plastic nursery flower pots. I practically had to wrap caution tape around these stacks to keep my husband from tossing them.

“I have plans for these”, I would tell him.  He would give me the look, stare at me for a beat, and then move on because he wasn’t going to win the discussion.

What I didn’t reveal is that I didn’t have an immediate stellar creative idea as I stared at these stacks. But once I got that creative brain burst – probably in the middle of the night and why I’ve now started using nightly eye cream – check out this very easy, thrifty flowery front door decor idea.

Create Super Epoxy Resin Wall Art This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of USAonCanvas.com. All opinions are my own. I received complimentary product to facilitate my review.

Have you ever ordered something custom online and then squealed with joy when you opened the box? Or have you ever uploaded your own artwork to a site, keeping your fingers crossed the entire time that it’ll print as you envision, to only have it come out better than you thought?

So, did you hear my excited “OMG!!” when I opened the over-sized box from USAonCanvas.com and found myself staring at this awesome piece of superhero artwork? Who knew wall art could evoke such happy emotion!

Check out this piece of [super] wall decor that brought me an excited shriek…

Create Superhero Wall Decor Using Paint Can Lids

DIY Thrifty Superhero Paint Can Lid Emblems Wall DecorSometimes the strangest things can make for the most interesting decor. Case in point, paint can lids. Clean, of course. Who would’ve thought they’d make for some perfect superhero emblems?

My husband for one. He’s the family’s resident go-to for which superhero has what power, which one’s the ‘bad guy’ and ‘are they all friends’. You know, the typical questions a super curious 4 year old will ask while his superhero clueless mom quietly wonders the same thing.

Join me as we continue to create a superhero-themed room for said preschooler, sparked by my husband’s inheritance of a box of not-going-to-make-us-wealthy old comic books.

How to Create a Simple Superhero Gallery Wall

DIY Simple Superhero Gallery WallWelcome to Frazzled-Free Fridays {13}!

About a year ago, my mother-in-law started cleaning out her storage areas and closets. Super. Less for us to do when they downsize and move. However until this day comes, her clean-out meant her bringing over boxes and bags of my husband’s childhood items to my house.

Part of this loot was his collection of comic books. Now what was I going to do with these well-read, dog-eared, much-loved, not-going-to-make-us-wealthy box of comic book strips?! Enter my superhero-loving preschooler, who was moving into his own room. 

See how I donned my figurative cape and mask to make him a simple superhero gallery wall.

Teachers Rule: End of Year Teacher Appreciation Gift

DIY Teacher Appreciation GiftTeachers rule! As a [frazzled] mom to three, I’m not sure how our teachers can calmly and patiently manage a class of 20-something when I’m often run ragged by my trio. So whenever I can show my daughter’s teachers how much they are greatly appreciated, I’m all over it.

As the school year comes to a rapid close (seriously, how is it May already?!), I want to gift these special teachers with a small but creative token of their daily hard work…and to keep them in our good graces for my two active boys who’ll be entering their classrooms shortly! Yikes.

So, I created an end of year Teacher Appreciation Gift that shows them how much they “rule”!
