- I want these furniture legs from Pretty Pegs so badly, but they’re a bit pricey. They are supposed to be used with some IKEA furniture, but I’m thinking they’d work nicely with anything as long as you have the proper attachments. (via Design Sponge)
- One thing that I love about homes is how they are packed with history (well, some at least). I can’t get enough of trying to figure out why certain designs or materials were popular or necessary during a time frame. For instance, steel cabinetry in the 1950s were put in as an affordable way post war because of all the left over steel from the war efforts. Allll of this to say, I love the post Pam from Retro Renovation did this week on how polio braces for children in the ’50s are linked to clean, white kitchens of the time. Interesting.
- I feel like using those cabinet organizers vertically to stack pans should be a totally obvious use, but I needed Martha Stewart to suggest it. Great weekend project that my kitchen very much needs!
- We really need new nightstands and this sugarbeecrafts desk to nightstand DIY is perfect. I need to be on the lookout for a cheap, old desk in need of a little re-purposing! (via Brittany on Pinterest)
- So somehow I missed this on Design*Sponge. Good thing there is Pinterest to point things out for me! Instead of buy bookends, wrap bricks in pretty paper. It’s a perfect solution! Since our bookshelf doesn’t have walled sides, we really need a bunch of book ends to make everything look pulled together, and I have a pile of bricks in my yard waiting for this kind of project.
