Refab: Mod Podge table makeover


A couple of weeks ago, an early morning run resulted in found treasure ... this little table. If the sun hadn't been hitting the stainless steel in a blindingly bright way, I might not have noticed it. But I did. And it took about 30 seconds to establish the important things about it: the top is solid wood, the frame is in perfect condition and it's balanced. So I grabbed it. The makeover was fun and easy!

DIY: Paper-cord lampshade...



Early last year, a beautiful ball lamp shade created using doilies and a balloon burst (!) onto the blogosphere and I've seen nothing that compares ... until now.  This creation, care of Inspirera Mera requires very little material and the spun-web effect is fresh and really modern. The tutorial is in both Swedish and English with lots of great pics. The one issue for US readers seems to be the "paper cord" used.  It looks a lot like paper raffia to me but we do get twisted paper cord in the US. Please leave a comment if you have a better idea ... or know a good US source!
