I'm a sucker for a beautiful pattern or print and do my best to have art in every room in my home. Art doesn't have to just be on the walls; it's in the pillows, the throw blankets, and the table linens. It's everywhere! I've rounded up a few of my favorite graphic prints that could give a facelift to any space!
When we bought our house the above room was the previous owners little girl's room... in the 1970s. Everything had to go in this room – especially the air conditioning duct running up the corner wall. This bedroom, for now, is our guest bedroom, and I think you'll be amazed at how it turned out.
Perfect for Mother's Day, this bath shelf couldn't be easier--and quicker--to construct. Doesn't hurt that the outcome is completely charming. A pine board and a couple of drawer handles are the main components. Some masking tape
Copper is on trend and here to stay for a while. You've seen it on computers, desk accessories, pendant lights, jewelry, and so many more home decor accessories that I can't think to name. I'm currently digging this copper take on a traditional midcentury modern-style planter. Check it out!
I believe in color and pattern in the home. From pillows to throws to curtains and even the napkins on the table, patterns are important! I've rounded up 20 items of beautiful decor from my favorite shops ranging from the cheapest at $20 to the most expensive (a rug!) under $400!!! Check them out!
Our friends over at Dremel Weekends feature this absolutely lovely trio of uplights made of PVC. They look great with white interiors, but I'm wondering what they might've looked like sprayed on the inside, perhaps with something metallic like gold.
Besides the PVC pipe and a roto tool and bits (preferably Dremel, of course), other things we'll need to make them include spotlights, clamps...
When Jessica spotted Anthropologie's Swing Shelf ($108), she knew she could DIY one for a fraction of the cost. She did...and for only $25. Supplies were minimal and included some sisal rope, some copper
This living room was dark, closed and uninspired. And after losing her husband to cancer, what owner Lucy needed most was a bright, inviting fresh start. Click through to check out the inspiring makeover that designer Jenny Komenda did to help Lucy embark on a new chapter in her life.
I'm pretty sure my jaw dropped to the floor when I saw how easy this table was to make. Why didn't I think of using MDF for something like this?! Totally genius. And totally doable. I have a feeling you're going to want to make a million and one coffee tables when you see how this one turned out!
Embracing Simplicity: DIY Ceiling Light Fixture Revamp Using Earth Magnets and a Barrel Shade
There are just a few incidentals left to complete, and then my home office will be finished. (I get a little giddy just thinking about it.) The hard stuff-building, painting, staining, and sanding is done. Now it's just a matter of making things look pretty.
One of those things is the room's ceiling fixture. I haven't seen any (excuse the expression, but it fits) boob light revamps on the interweb that hides their appearance.
Although I did see one project that suggested making a pretty bra (made of beads) for the thing. Yeah, that wasn't going to happen. It still looked like a boob light--just ready for some action. Okay, I'm getting off track.
So! I had also seen a bunch of projects where the makers removed the glass part of the fixture and wired up a barrel shade to the original flange of the old fixture through which they drilled holes.
The outcome looked okay, but, because they had to leave room for their fingers to do the wire-twisting, the shades couldn't be flush to the ceiling--something I wanted. However, if the makers
Most people think of the mudroom as the dumping ground for backpacks, muddy shoes, and mail. But it can still be pretty! Try accessorizing the space with one (or more!) of these cool & colorful pieces!
Talk about a lesson in perseverance. When Serena snagged this marvelous MCM chair at a thrift store for $7, she had no idea what she was in for. After stripping the entire thing, she discovered the chair's back and body were constructed of two different types of wood. Then Serena had issues with
I will admit that pastel colors are not my favorite so when Pantone revealed the two colors of the year it challenged me a little. I do have this theory that black can make any color awesome so it was the first thought in my head when trying to style with these colors. Here are three spaces that show you how you can style Rose Quartz and Serenity with good old fashioned black.
I agree with Sarah, the genius behind this Ikea rocking moose (aka Ekorre $39.99) hack: it's pretty cute as is. However, the red red coat just wasn't working with Sarah's decor. So...she decided to change its species and turn Ekorre into a rocking SHEEP. As you can imagine, changing species called for some cosmetic surgery. First came rhinoplasty, as said moose's schnauz wasn't right at all. A nip and tuck and...
It's no secret that simply swapping out the hardware on dressers, desks, and other furniture can give it a whole new look. These easy leather pulls are a quick to make and the result is stunning!
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'.
Pastels have made their way back into the hearts of design lovers everywhere. They've been deemed as "girly" or "shabby chic" in the past, but there are ways to be bold, be pastel, and be awesome. Check out these 13 rooms that do just that!
I get that it is easier to just decorate in neutral colors sometimes. You don't have to worry about matching colors or if a room seems to loud. But it doesn't have to be boring! Here are 13 spaces that totally get the natural thing and are totally not beige and basic!
Kortiny wanted a mid-century modern credenza for her new house, but the cost of such was not in the cards. So, like any good DIYer, she set out to make her own with the help of an IKEA Mostorp TV Unit. Haven't heard of the Mostorp? That's because it's a new product, which just happened to be perfect for Kortiny's hack. Although it had the right overall vibe, its legs were
Chris Heider, the handy dad behind the very popular YouTube video showing how he made a platform bed with storage using IKEA kitchen cabinets is at it again. This time he shows us how to use Billy and Brimnes Bookcases, which cost $49.99 and $119.00 respectively, to make a very cool "bed bridge"
