Pinspirations: Numbered Things

I’m a little obsessed with things that come in multiples and are numbered.  I’ve already done two projects that include putting numbers on décor items:  my latest post about numbered boy buckets and the numbered bar stools for our kitchen.  This is the inspiration for today’s Pinspirations!

All three of these pins are on my list of projects to do.  The obsession runs deep, haha.


These pillows are from Pottery Barn (no longer available though).  They were priced at $100 for all four.  I KNOW I can DIY them for virtually nothing with the help of some freezer paper and fabric paint!

I’m also a little obsessed with wooden crates, especially since I discovered that Walmart sells unfinished ones for $10.  I  bought some dark stain to refinish our small patio set and I think some of the leftover stain will go towards this project.

I recently found a discarded bedside table on the side of the road and when I saw this pin, I knew it was going to get this kind of treatment.  It is destined for Boy#1’s bedroom…I’m thinking a white frame with grey drawers and white numbers in the corner of the two drawers.  Another no-spend project!


Mini Project Monday: Cute Crate Side Table

Today’s Mini Project Monday took me about five minutes to complete (a little more if you count the time it took me to whitewash the crate over a year ago…I don’t!).

I have a pin on my “Projects to Try” Pinterest board that features a wooden crate secured to the wall to act as a bedside table.  I tend to like a little more storage in my bedside tables than a simple crate would offer, but I liked the idea for the bathroom to hold toilet paper, tissues, etc.

This one was really easy to do…I already had the crate that was supposed to be used as a baby shower gift but I chose something else instead.  I found the studs, pre-drilled some holes and screwed it into the wall.  It actually took me more time to find the tools than it did to finish the project.


I added a black basket for toilet paper, box of tissue and some flowers and called this project done.  Best part?  It alleviates the need for a toilet paper holder, meaning no arguments about who didn’t change the empty roll!
