Saturday Brunch Links- DIY Extravaganza

Hello everyone! It’s been a great week filled with tons of awesome posts, items and articles from around the interwebs. I actually was out in LA 2 weeks ago so I’m STILL catching myself up on everything- my reader is bursting. I wanted to share some stuff that I found so far.

Hopefully you’ll like it… if not, you can burn my blog down. :)

34 DIY Headboard Ideas

YEAH! One of our missions this year is to make a DIY headboard. We have a Tempurpedic bed, so naturally the frame didn’t come with any kind of useful headboard. Since we bought a california king (Don’t ever do that by the way. Just don’t) there’s no headboard that actually fits our bed correctly. I personally like the fabric headboard they have there, but I’d want to starch it and have it posted up on an actual physical, oversized and rectangular headboard so it wasn’t hanging out all by itself.

So here’s something fun DIY headboards from Homedit.com for you to check out during your Saturday brunch/coffee hours. :)

DIY Mirror Frames

This is another thing on our list for the year. I know, I keep saying that, but it’s true. There’s something about the look of a framed mirror that’s elegant, timeless, yet modern. If you already have a gigantic mirror in your bathroom like we do, it’s probably not worth getting rid of it and buying an already constructed, framed mirror. We looked around and even in HomeGoods they’ll run you between $100-$200 for something big enough for the bathroom.

This DIY tutorial for framing mirrors from the Southern Hospitality blog allows you to keep your existing mirror and pretty it up.

Muvom Storage System

Okay, this thing is pretty great. I’ve seen IKEA Hacks where you can take the expedit shelving and mount it on the wall for a floating shelf system, but this is extremely tasteful and customizable so you can set it up in a way that fits your decorating needs. Muvom has created a pretty neat, rearrangeable product so you’re not consistently sick of whatever it is you put in your tiny house. Or maybe I’m just ADD and like to move things around a lot.

Shoebox Dwelling put up some images of it- the Muvom site is a little weird/confusing (and not in english) so finding something good in there was pretty difficult.

 

DIY Polka Dot Rug

Everyone wants a DIY polka dot rug that you can play twister on :) Even if you don’t want polka dots, this is a great DIY post on A Beautiful Mess that’ll help you customize any rug you might have with a particular design you like. I actually like the black polka dots on a white rug, but my head is spinning with a bunch of different ideas now…

DIY Office Labels

I’m a label freak, meaning, if I could label my dog I probably would.

7th House on the Left put together a quick post with some Martha Stewart office labels. I actually didn’t know she had her own line (I don’t like her… don’t ask) but if these are in her office line then I may have to disguise myself and check out some of her products…

Well, I’m off. The Doberman is whining (which doesn’t really surprise me at 11:20 am on a Saturday morning when I’m trying to enjoy my coffee). Enjoy your Saturday and go make a headboard. :)
