When I made over my dad’s home office & mudroom space I created a fun bucket-list geometric accent wall behind the mudroom storage bench. I thought that might scratch my accent wall dreams, but it just fueled my fire to want to create one in my own house someday… then we got a house! Now, finally, all of those years of sneakily checking out modern geometric accent walls on Pinterest have finally paid off, and I can’t wait to share my own version with you!
Creating custom furniture doesn’t have to be complicated! I purchased a $40 chest of drawers from Ikea and turned it into a woven cane nightstand! Even better, this DIY Ikea Hack only took me one weekend to complete! Here’s how!
Between working on the store and working… well, at work… I haven’t been able to juggle many home projects. But, there is one project I have been wanting to do that I was able to find a few days to swing, and I am so stoked about it! I have been wanting to transform a floor mirror I purchased at Target a few years ago into a live edge mirror using a cut off piece of lumber from the fireplace mantle I made a few months ago. So, I recycled the glass and made a DIY live edge mirror!
As of recently, I have been finding myself completely obsessed with mid-century modern sideboards and media cabinets. It’s almost like a disease. I just stare at them and wish I could afford the upwards of $1,000 price tag that exists on some of these beautiful units. Then opportunity knocked when I was challenged to create a cool project from only one sheet of plywood. Taa-daa! Easy modern media cabinet for literally 1/10th of the price including hardware and finishes!
