Design Team: Staci Potter

Hi, I’m Staci.
I blog over at ThePotters-Place.
I am a wife to a die hard U of U football fan, mother to two girls {adoption rocks}, part time cosmetologist, and every day crafter.  I grew up with parents who are very crafty.  My mom made us the most amazing Easter dresses and my dad taught me to DIY.
I blog about creating, making, and DIY-ing around our home.  One of my favorite things to do is turn trash into treasure.  I was once asked if I ever leave anything alone.  I took it as a compliment and said, “Nope!  Everything needs a little paint, love and glitter.”
Here are a few of my favorite projects from my blog using vinyl.
I am so excited to be part of the Brookie Craft Design Team.For more DIY projects visit my

5 Ideas for Using Vinyl on Glass

This is a personal favorite of mine. Nothing is more impressive then taking something as simple as a frame, old window, glass jar or blog and adding a bit of vinyl to it to create that one of a kind home decor or gift idea. Check out these fun ideas.

Add Vinyl to Old Window

I instantly fell in love with this subway art piece that Lil’ Luna created above her headboard. Seriously on of my favorite ideas out there.


Check out Lil’ Luna’s awesome blog full of ideas. 

Use Vinyl to Create Faux Etching on Tabletop 

Okay this one wasn’t a vinyl on glass feature but it does show how vinyl was used to help created the amazing pattern on the glass tabled top. Seriously go check out her before and after pictures of this coffee table, it will rock your world.

Check out the before and after at All Things Thrifty Blog

Add Vinyl to Glass on Frame

I love the look of adding your favorite paper to the inside of a shadow box frame and then vinyl on the glass. These fun small frames are from Ikea and a great way to add fun dimension to a Gallery Wall. Be sure to check out the post from The House of Smiths.

Add to Glass Jar or Jug

This beautiful jug is stunning. Stephanie picked the write graphic and I loved that she used a dark grey vinyl…almost give it that printed look on the jar don’t you thin? Check out her blog post for her tutorial on how she recreated this Water Jug.
