I love the beach! So I decorated one of my spare bedrooms in a beach theme and I had the hardest time finding the right light for the bedside. Granted today the beach theme is very popular and there are very cute light options out there now that I would have purchased had the options been available. Since things weren’t available, I decided that I wanted to make my own light after finding the Morkt Lantern at IKEA that perfectly matched the color scheme in the room.
I was desperately looking for a place to store all of my jewelry. While shopping at IKEA I saw this awesome mirror, the Stave, that was being sold with hinges. I quickly realized how brilliant it would be to use this mirror to store jewelry! So here is my very own IKEA hack! For another great closet organization idea heck out my Closet Space Saver post or Rachel’s Simple Scarf or Belt Hanger!
I have to admit that I am the most proud of this refresh that I’ve done to my living room wall! I used to have floating shelves with my knick knacks on them and wasn’t in love with that look anymore. I had a curtain rod left over from our move a few years ago and I didn’t toss it thinking I could do something with it. I’d seen an idea of several frames hanging from a rod and wanted to figure out how to do this. I went back and forth considering ideas and shooting them down because of the sheer weight frames would have on the rod. Like I said years passed and this idea had been gnawing at me, so I started googling different strings of words to try to get more inspiration on how to accomplish my idea. I came across Rodworks.com and they literally have step-by-step directions for “fake hanging,” check out the link to see! What is this you ask? Let me show you!!
