Architectural Artwork

Designer Brian Patrick Flynn wanted to add a rustic-meets-industrial vibe to this bedroom, so he created a one-of-a-kind piece of art out of some salvaged wood. He mounted the charmingly distressed door directly to the wall, then framed it out with some scrap trim pieces to give it a custom built-in look.

Suitcase Bedside Table

Have you ever thought about turning an old suitcase into a bedside table? Start with a small table and suitcase that work well together dimension-wise — a hard shell suitcase works best. Prime and paint both the suitcase and table with your choice of paint. Set the open suitcase on the table and drill several pilot holes straight through to the wood below. Secure with screws, close the suitcase, and your new table is ready to be used! Head over to Songbird Blog for full instructions and photos on creating your own suitcase side table.

Brass Stencil Lampshade

To create this brass stencil lampshade, gather up one wire-framed lampshade and a hefty handful of vintage brass letter stencils. Rip off the fabric from the lampshade frame and wrap the top and base with grosgrain ribbon. Next, punch some holes in the brass stencils and start tying them onto the lampshade frame with string, fine twine or ribbon. Place the shade on a vintage lamp, add an industrial-chic Edison bulb, and you're done! See Amy Duncan's complete tutorial at Four Corners Design.

Coastal-Style Shutter Headboard

Layla Palmer of The Lettered Cottage thriftily found new purpose for some unfinished shutters and ended up creating a gorgeous and unique headboard with a coastal cottage style. The shutters were painted, lightly distressed, then anchored securely to the wall. The look is simple, cozy and creates the perfect focal point for this neutral bedroom.
