Internet Inspirations

When I have some down-time, I like to browse my favorite decor blogs.  I save fun ideas and beautiful images.  When I get a bunch, I like to share them here. Well, it's that time again!  Look what I've seen:

How cool is this idea?  A closet door is turned into a bookcase! This would be a perfect idea for small spaces.  I just wouldn't fill it with Grandma's china with the way people slam doors around here!

Here was a fabulous tutorial from A Charming Nest on adding more character by way of moulding to your doorways.  For those of you that have more contemporary homes that have little moulding, this would be an easy way to add some.

I'm not sure which I love more: the blue and coral combination or those awesome striped drapes!

Courteny Hill Interiors
I love how this memo board was jazzed up a couple of notches by adding nailhead in a great graphic pattern.  And how about that lucite chair?  I have got to get one of those!!

Kara Paslay Designs
How cute is this cabinet.  This couple collected odd drawers and built the cabinet to fit around them.  The mirrored panel flips up to hide the DVD player. So creative!

Polish the Stars
How cute is this? For this boy's superhero room, the closet door was painted to look like a phone booth!  Love the bright red element that is added to this room!

I LOVE this idea for a great, large piece of art.  This blog shows you how to make a piece of art using your wedding song and aging and enlarging it. An inexpensive piece of art that has meaning.

I love those blueprint artwork seen in Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware.  But the price!!! This blog shows you how to use copyright-free prints and make them yourself!

I LOVE this idea! How about mounting an old china cabinet about the sink?  It's a fun way to give a custom look to your kitchen without a huge makeover.  You sure could do this idea on any awkward wall (you know, those kitchens where one lonely cabinet sits off all by itself to one side? Take in down and put something with character up!!) This would also be a great idea for a renter.

Do you have one of those ugly intake vents on a wall that bugs you? This lady "covered" it with an easy-to-find iron piece that still lets the air flow, yet dresses it up.

A great DIY headboard by The Idea Room.  It's simple but gives such a custom and elegant look.

I think this is such a cute idea. Make photobooth-style art for a hallway or family room. Have fun taking photos on a white background, using some photo editing, then print them out in squares (I love costco!) and hang as if in photobooth strips (I'd probably just spray mount them on foam or MDF.)

How cool is this Triple bunkbed idea? It would not only be a fun space for the kids, it would save a lot of room for those that have to share a room.

Here's a great tutorial of how to build a wood frame for your flat screen out of scrap lumber.  I love this idea!


  1. I found you via Pinterest! Can you link to the intake vent DIY? I found some intake covers but the price is $300-600. Wow!! Ours is ugly but not $600 ugly. Thanks!

  2. Do you have a link to the bookcase/closet door? Would love to do this on the linen closet at the end of my hall!
