Ikea Rast {Hack} Makeover!!

Hello All!. Yet another Ikea Rast Makeover. I have seen many modern inspirations on Pinterest.

But i would like to add a twist and make it look {little} antique  with the touch of modern.  The difficult part for me was to choose the color, believe me i went through a pile of swatches and ended up using the plain old wood stain : ))))). I know, a big scream..

I did get couple of wood scroll appliques ,while purchasing the legs for it at the home depot. I filled the holes on the sides with the wood filler so i can add the pulls in the center..

This is my mood board for this makeover. I’m planning to finish this week so i can reveal it to you.

Abstract Painting!!

Hello All!!. I’m so excited to share with you today’s post. My very own personal favorite, painting!!.  The vibrant colors makes me and any space filled with joy.  We used this canvas for my girl’s school work, since it is end of the school year, thought of using this for something, popped the idea of painting with a paper towel.

Paint colors are mostly in the orange/yellow family with a dash of brown and green too.

Lamp Base into Vase!!

Hello All!!.Call me crazy, but i did turned a lamp base into a vase.  We had this lamp for many years , but when finally it stopped working, didn’t want to throw the base away, as it was a house warming gift from a good friend and repurposed it. Love the weave pattern of it.

Sorry, i don’t have a before pic, but i did spray paint it in to white from brown originally.  Again bad lighting.
