ReFab@Home: Bed Head...



So... I've been a little lazy about my home tour. But this week I actually got around to taking pictures while the light was good.  So here's a bedroom project!  I'm not really a headboard person - I think the wall works pretty well.  But I do like the idea of making the wall above the bed a feature of some sort.  Especially if it's the wall you see from the room entrance.  We have very little color in this room - the walls are a green we love. Pretty much everything else in the space is wood (furniture) or natural fibers in neutral tones.  So I had no idea what I wanted above the bed. Consequently, the space was empty for a while.  Then one day we happened upon these place mats at CB2... yup - they're place mats.  They were on clearance, of course.  Since they don't really lie flat, they were never going to make very good place mats.  But I loved the wood.  

DIY: Woodsy Mobile ...



A modern, woodsy mobile for baby?  Yes.  Love.  Especially if you (or someone you know) has wood veneer pieces lying around from a previous home DIY.  Get the how to from You are my Fave.

DIY: Beeswax flowers ...


This little DIY from Garden Therapy is making my Friday.  I'm thinking of flowering teas... you know the dried blooms that you put in boiling water and watch open?  These candles would be a great way to use old mason jars ... it also means that you can pop a lid on your beautiful creation and surprise whoever gets to open it.

DIY: Penny desk...


Maybe a desk made of pennies will help generate lots of good, deep thoughts?  Via ManMade DIY (one of my biggest blog crushes).
