    The Classics Never Go Out of Style

    Like this matte black pendant lamp from Urban Outfitters ($149).

    Speaking of classics, I’ve been writing for Shak in Style for about seven years now. It’s been so much fun, but, sadly, this is going to be my last post. Life just keeps getting busier and I have yet to find any extra hours in the day. Someone else will be stepping in to take up the reins, so stick around. And, most importantly, thanks for reading.

    DIY Juju Hat

    Remember when African Juju Hat wall hangings were all the rage? I have to say, I still love them. I just happened upon a Juju Hat DIY from Love Maegan. It looks fairly straight forward and is a great excuse for buying feathers, which I’m always tempted by anyways.

    Gold Standard

    Sometimes I think I’ve seen every possible Ikea hack out there. Then a new one pops up. This DALFRED bar stool makeover requires only gold spray paint. I’d say add a coat of sealer, too. I don’t know how well spray paint holds up to constant wear. Get the instructions here.

    Quack Up

    It’s always nice when decor can be stylish and have a sense of humor. I think this duck-footed lamp from Emily + Meritt for PB Teen is pulling both off nicely. Currently on sale for $149.

    Space Saver

    This new midcentury floating cabinet from West Elm would make a great alternative to a dresser in a small bedroom or buffet in a small dining room. At $249 it’s kind of a steal.

    Etsy Find: Finally

    I have been on the hunt for a large-scale black and white horse photo for my bedroom for literally years. Finally, I found the perfect one. I wanted a close up on the horse’s face with either a black or white background – no visible landscape. Pomelorice has the one above. It’s exactly what I want. There’s just one problem. Their current printer isn’t capable of ¬†print the above size. I messaged the shop and they are going to notify me when it’s available again. Currently you can get a 16″ x 23″ version for $105.

    Dark Floral Walls

    I’ve been really excited to see dark floral prints catching on. In the past, I’ve posted some wall murals, but I couldn’t resist revisiting the topic with these new floral wallpapers from Ashley Woodson Baily. $14 per square foot. She also sells fine art prints from $140 if a whole wall of giant flowers is a little too much. ¬†Via Cup of Jo.

    DIY Marble + Wood Trays

    Coco + Kelly has a very straight-forward tutorial for making your own wood and marble cheese trays from tile and wood remnants. The only out-of-the-ordinary thing you need is a food-safe surface sealer. Get the instructions here.
