I know you feel like you just ripped out the 80s gold fixtures in your bathroom renovation five years ago, which, by the way, was a good decision, but the truth is... gold fixtures are back. No, it's not a scary resurgence like the fashion trend of acid washed jeans a few years back. Gold fixtures can be a part of a stylish and timeless style. Gold isn't the only fixture finish getting all the attention either. Don't forget about the resurgence of copper and bronze into the design world. Today I'm going to share an extremely thorough list of where you can buy gold, copper, and bronze kitchen and bathroom fixtures for any design style.
I know what you're thinking: Sharpies stick to wax?? Probably not. (Honestly, I've never attempted it.) But they DO stick to tissue paper, which is what Erica used to make custom candles. After making her design, she has a very neat trick
I like a properly matted and framed piece of artwork as much as anyone, but sometimes, it can be a little overkill. First off, it's expensive, especially for large pieces, and secondly, it doesn't always fit the style of the art. Framing a poster or screen print can often make the space feel more like a weird movie or record exec's office, rather that a home filled with awesome art.
Whenever I find any large, vintage art, I'm especially struck by the bold graphic design and aged colors and texture. For something like this, a classic frame would be way too expensive, and not the right fit, design-wise.
So, I took a cue from the classic pull-down maps of my elementary school classrooms, and created a simple way to hang it on the wall with a lot more character. This month we've been teaming up with our friends at True Value, my local neighborhood hardware store, and I think this project shows off how you can come up with a great, stylish-looking final project using simple materials and just a few tools.
Is there anything more rewarding in the DIY world than using reclaimed materials to make something? Seriously. A dejected object on a layover to a landfill is spotted by a keen eye. The object is swooped up and turned into something marvelous, getting a second chance on life and love. (We should all be so lucky.) The reclaimed materials featured in these 20 projects were the main characters of such fairytales. They now act as...
We've all seen our fair share of ugly ceiling light fixtures. We've also see our fair share of DIY ceiling light fixture cover ups. Here are six of our favorites, all of which can be adapted
This bathroom was nothing special before. It lacked color, and needed some serious personality to give it a unique feel. Just wait until you see what the owners did to it! Talk about a complete 180. Click through to check out the finished product.
This master bath was nothing special. It had a very average look to it, with lots of medium toned colors and no real wow-factor. But not anymore! Click through to check out this bathroom now that the owners have added picture frame moulding, gold accents, a fantastic new wall color and lots of other little details.
Makeover stories are usually uplifting. This one is too, but it didn't start out that way. You see, Lucy's home didn't feel like home anymore as she had recently lost her husband. Lucy's sister Jo brainstormed with her interior designer friend Jenny Kmoenda and came up with a plan. They decided to
This small (and very average) bathroom certainly isn't the worst 'before' that has ever been shared here on Curbly. But the reason I think makeover is so interesting is because of just how average it was intially - not entirely awful, but also no where near great. Right? Maybe it reminds you of your current bathroom in one or another? And if that's the case, you're definitely going to want to click through to see the 'after'.
Many of us live in a home with a small bathroom. Here are ten bathrooms that showcase some stylish storage.
Winter always seems to be synonoymous with white, in my mind (even despite our lack of snow up here in the northeast). There's something about a mostly white space with soft textures and layers that feels so cozy and inviting. So today we're sharing ten stunning white rooms that will surely inspire you to embrace the subtle hue.
Everyone loves to see bathroom makeovers. You know, the bathrooms that are completely gutted and completely reconfigured. Those bathrooms are fun and completely "pinnable" but for many are not attainable for many different reasons. This bathroom is pretty bad and very outdated. It was actually considered livable before the toilet, faucets, and that random turn dial light switch were taken out. In this bathroom makeover, everything you see besides the wallpaper, stayed in the bathroom. We refinished every surface and believe me, it does not look the same...
The reason Sabrina & Mike's bathroom makeover clocked in on a tiny budget is because they used leftovers from their whole-house renovation. The bulk of the cash went to replacing the toilet and sink. Leftover oak flooring replaced
James and Kristina's bathroom looks nothing--and I mean NOTHING--like this anymore. Gone is the 1950's blue wall tile and the 1980's (?) floor tile. Now it's sleek and
If "modern farmhouse" sounds like an oxymoron, take a gander at Lauren's recent bathroom re-do. She took a builder's vision and turned it into a cozy retreat worthy of any spa treatment. Particularly delightful is her use of textures. A
