When she's not running her online paper goods and printables shop or teaching blogging classes, Emily is making over her home by giving it a custom flair. Her creative talent might stem from a background in custom stationery, but now she's tackling awesome home projects like this killer shingle fireplace makeover and DIY painted wallpaper.

I first encountered View Along the Way when stumbling across this chipboard letter art project on Pinterest, which inspired me to create my own DIY artwork for my nursery. Kelly goes beyond creating cool artwork with her designer knockoff series, where the pièce de résistance is this DIY dodecahedron pendant light.

Amanda Wright is a "self-proclaimed design nerd." A few years ago, she took the big plunge and opened up a stationery shop, which has blown up in a big way. She started her blog as a source of motivation to "live a creative life." While all the creative goodies she writes about are inspiring, we especially love her DIY home projects. She blew us away with her fabulous DIY herringbone barn-wood coffee table!


Two Thirty-Five Designs

After a fire devastated her home, Allison of Two Thirty-Five Designs is using the unfortunate event as motivation for building a new home for her family. We are simply obsessed with her giant fish-scale wall art idea for a large impact piece on a budget, and her glitter ombre art is an easy way to kick the ombre trend up a notch.
