    Tutorial Time

    I’ve run across several fantastic tutorials on Pinterest this week – and with shorter, colder days on the way, it’s the perfect time to find some new indoor projects. Above, a retro diamond focal wall from Vintage Revivals.

    And while you’re cleaning out your sweater drawer, why not make an old sweater into a cross stitched pillow. Get the how-to over at A Beautiful Mess.

    And if you’re looking for a classy twist on fall decor, check out these decoupage pumpkins over at Poppytalk. Happy crafting.

    Spin Me a Yarn

    There’s something so charming and folksy about these Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles from Aunt Peaches. And that’s leaving out how amazingly fun it is to say “Yarn Tassel Knob Bobbles.” All you need to make them is some colorful yarn and a few inexpensive bracelets. Get the how-to here.

    What a cool and eye-catching way to display art. They’ve simply continued a graphic element out of the frame onto the wall. Via Coco & Kelley.

    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.

    Hot Off the Presses

    I’ve always had trouble parting with old magazines – especially cooking and decorating magazines. In fact, I still have an entire box of Domino Magazines wedged under my bed. That’s why I love the idea of repurposing a stack of magazines as the support for a picture ledge. It might just be time for me to dust off those back issues. Via Wit and Delight.

    Ikea Hack: Mid-Century Sideboard

    Most Ikea hacks are too complicated for me to tackle, but this simple change really makes all the difference. The folks at ikeahackers.net took a plain Expedit shelf and added 12mm plywood and mid-century legs. All it took was liquid nails, four table legs and some screws. Via Poppytalk.
