    Fancy That

    This Marbled Brass wall hook seems like the perfect way to fancy up a bathroom. I love the art deco feel. $20 each at Anthropologie.com.

    Mirror Mirror

    I am in love with the sideways-hung mirror in this kitchen and have been formulating a plan for making one for myself. I figured the easiest way to go about it would be with vinyl decals. I managed to find the perfect mirror on Overstock.com for $349.

    I couldn’t find a wall decal that exactly mimicked the effect above, but I’m thinking a combination of small flourish decals like the one below might work. $15 each from Creative Expressions.

    Frame Loom Weaving

    I’ve been seeing woven wall art all over the internet for the last month or so. It’s beautiful and potentially a nice hobby. I did a little research recently and found a few good resources. Image above via Brick House.

    DIY Decor Projects has this frame loom tutorial.

    A Beautiful Mess has this tutorial for a fast and easy wall hanging hack using a small woven rug as a base.

    And if you really want to dive in, you can pick up this well-rated and thorough tome over at Amazon.

    Ap-peeling

    I ran across this swallow removable wallpaper over at Urban Outfitters. I’ve always wondered why there aren’t more removable options and if removable paper works at all (according to some of the commenters on this Apartment Therapy thread, it does). Unfortunately, there are no product reviews on the site. $68 a roll here.

    Sophisticated Papier Mache

    I remember doing the occasional papier mache project as a kid – usually in art class. We made masks once and I know I made at least one piƱata, but nothing so grown-up and lovely as some of the papier mache projects I’ve seen on Pinterest. Above, papier mache cactuses from Design Sponge. Get the tutorial here.

    I also love these mushrooms. You can get the PDF tutorial here.

    A mobile of papier mache nests from Poppy Talk.

    And if you prefer not to do it yourself, you can purchase these beautiful, quirky sculptures by Abigail Brown here.
