Desk calendar

"It couldn’t have been more simple. Take the calendar, flip it over and write the months as prettily as possible. If you’re not into calligraphy and don’t have the tools to give it a try, don’t worry! You can use a sharpie or colored pen honestly and make this look good." - View From 5ft2

Vinyl decals on glass 

"I decided to put some finishing touches on a few small frames that we are using in our family room photo wall collage. All I did was take these three small IKEA frames and back them with paper that coordinated with my photo wall." - The House of Smiths

Tufted headboard 

"It was time for a change…because…well…I like change! I wanted to turn her Farmhouse Bed into a bed with a tufted headboard.  I simply needed to take a piece of plywood and cut it to fit the middle section of the bed where the stencil was." - The Idea Room
