I really love the unique and customizable look of fabric lampshades and after posting several of my favorites last month, as well as a how-to by All Things Lovely, I decided to give the project a spin myself.
I ordered this great hand stamped block print fabric from HomeSweet on Etsy and found two replacement lampshades at a local lighting store. All I can say is easy, easy, easy! I was so impressed with how quickly I whipped both of these out, and I really love the blue with my bedroom.

I don’t know about you but I have a few of these folding chairs lying around… ready for guests and parties and everything else that comes our way (actually, now that I think of it, I should really get some more!). When I saw this Before & After from Apartment Therapy, I knew it would resonate with hostesses and DIY decorators alike.
You could always purchase these beautiful Anthropologie folding chairs (at $200 each, see below) to get an equally bohemian and modern look, or you could invest in a few neat fabric remnants, a bit of cushion foam and a staple gun… and have at your own collection! Guests will wow over your results and love the comfy cushions.

This is such a clever way to refurbish an old dining room table. Plus, so much fun for kids (and dinner guests!) — no crayons and placemats required! Kate Leary of Mi Piace Kate Design shared this Before & After with Design Sponge in August after a great Craigslist find up in San Francisco. It’s so classy! The structure of the table is already there — but the bleached wood look had to go.
A bit of priming, chalkboard paint and a Saturday afternoon — and voila, a beautiful table that’s fun for everyone! I love the chairs, too. It adds that modern edge to tie the piece into the rest of the house.
