Sometimes it can be difficult for couples to express their personal style when they are renting a home but thanks to Jilly Lynn Photography we can get a little inspiration for achieving that cozy home sweet home vibe all newlyweds crave.
Jill and her husband are newlyweds, and they enjoy doing DIY projects. One of their first projects was a Pottery Barn inspired clock and faux fireplace. Needless to say, it looked amazing and not overly hard to do! You can do it too!
How to create the faux fireplace:
Total Time: 3 hours | Cost $75.00
Materials: Scrap wood, two molding pieces, “L” brackets, and screws. – The front piece of wood is actually a headboard from a local thrift store.
- Paint the piece of wood in Chalk Paint (super easy to work with)
- Hang white lights on the inside of the fireplace to give it a glow
- Place a tray of pillar candles inside
Decorations: The top is decorated with a lantern and wreath from a thrift store. The flowers are from the Dollar Store, and the Ball Jar is from a yardsale.
How to create the clock:
Total Time: 1 hour | Cost $14.00
- We took the top off of a three legged table we purchased at a yard sale. Then we sanded it and drilled a hole in the middle.
- I painted the piece with leftover chalk paint and used my silhouette cameo to cut the Roman numerals out of matte vinyl.
- We purchased a large clock hand kit from Hobby Lobby to complete the project.
