    Steal of the Week: Assembly Home Midcentury Vanity

    I love the unusual mirror on this Assembly Home Midcentury vanity. The mirror can also be hung on the wall, but I think the wooden support is what makes this piece so interesting. $230 at Urban Outfitters.

    DIY: Dress Up a Plain Wooden Chair

    This is a great idea for dressing up an inexpensive wooden chair – just add fabric with Mod Podge. Get the tutorial from All Things Thrifty. This might be especially striking on Ikea’s Vilmar chairs ($39 for seat and base)

    Etsy Find: Mouse House Brown

    I discovered the Mouse House Brown Etsy shop via Pinterest and was delighted by the hand-themed embroidery. I especially like the hand-embroidered pennants, above “Be Gentle,” $40. Below, “Don’t Touch,” $30.

    Office Supplies

    Curbly has a great tutorial for updating an old metal filing cabinet. I run across these at garage sales all the time and they seem so handy, but they’re usually so ugly. It’s nice to see how one could be transformed with some paint and a little elbow grease.

    Bracketology

    Here’s a super simple, super inexpensive way to add subtle color to a room: painted shelf brackets.

    Ikea’s untreated birch  EKBY VALTER brackets ($4 each) would be perfect for something like this. Just add a little paint.

    Ikea Hack: Modern Planters

    Summer’s almost here, so it’s the perfect time for this Modern Planter Ikea hack from Brady Bunch Remodel. All you need is a pair of the large (9.5″ diameter base) KARDEMUMMA planters ($20 each) and some liquid nails to put these together. These look just like the expensive tall planters I’ve seen at stylish gardening centers and will save you a ton of cash.

    Via Everything Etsy.
