I love this faux headboard which is actually a wall decal from Blik. The blog Manolo for the Home has a very informative article about article about wall decals if you’ve been wanting to try them but would like some pointers on the ups and downs of applying them.
You’d have to go minimalist to get away with a kitchen island like this but it would certainly be worth it. Oh, yeah, and you’d also have to set aside 40 days and 20,000 legos. Read more about this masterpiece at Dwell.
Camilla from the Family Chic blog was looking at Ikea’s cupcake liners recently and they reminded her of pretty little lampshades so she made strung lights out of them for her garden! Check out her blog entry for the step by step instructions. (Discovered via DollarStoreCrafts)
P.S. If you’re wondering if these would be a fire hazard since the liners are paper, Camilla points out that since they’re safe for the oven, there’s probably not a fire risk.
P.P.S. These would be an awesome and unique decoration for a baby or wedding shower! Especially if you’re serving cupcakes!

Add a some more cute to your kiddo’s nursery with these airplane and cloud removable wall decals by Blik. I also love how striking they look against the mauve wall paint.
The talented Mena Trott from SewWeekly.com has shared a step-by-step tutorial for making a display for your brooches which you can hang on your wall. You basically just staple some fabric to a wooden frame. And if you have embroidery chops, you can embroider it like she did.
I love the idea because it’s instant wall art and it helps remind you of the brooches you own so you remember to wear them! You could even hang earrings and other jewelry on this kind of display (with u-shaped jewelry pins to help out).
Sure, you could build giant storage containers out of legos, but have you ever seen giant storage containers in the shape of giant legos? (Discovered via Lost Bird Found)
