Y’all. Best of the Blogosphere is back! I’m excited to be starting up this series again now that we’ve all recovered from the holidays and are back in DIY mode. Amanda and I hunt down these ideas from all over the internet, and bring the best of what we spy to you in this bimonthly series. Here are our latest finds sure to inspire you!
Pipes plus wood equals impressive industrial open shelving with supplies from Lowes, read the how to over at The DIY Showoff.
A brick wall is transformed with planks and gray stain into a striking modern focal point fireplace – full step by step over at Design*Sponge.
We can’t help falling in love with this two tone midcentury dresser built from scratch at Makely Home for Girls.
We love a great IKEA hack, this rustic farmhouse table was constructed by East Coast Creative with two IKEA Ingo tables as a base, distressed and stained, and now it’s a unique piece worthy of praise.
Don’t miss another great hack, this fabric covered TRYSIL chest from Driven by Décor combines an IKEA chest and a Target window panel with modern ring pulls.
Fabricate your own industrial copper geometric pendant with a supply list and tutorial spied over at Design Milk.
This is one of those “now why didn’t I think of that?” projects. Add prep space to your kitchen with burner cover cutting boards that utilize those valuable inches of cooktop. Via The Kitchn.
No doubt this will make its way onto the Honey Do list of every new mom. Skip the mass produced versions and build your own barn door style baby gate like this one at Simple Kierste, then paint it a color to coordinate with your home.
Build your own statement plank wood wall art with That’s My Letter – chic and unique!
The popularity of marbled patterns continues – don’t miss this easy to follow technique on how to make you’re own marbled scarf (or fabric) via Etsy.
