This post is a collaboration of beautiful things to impart to you some home inspiration this weekend. Perhaps to buy, but more so to craft, build, and muse over. I’ve been trying to rethink (or simply, think, since the house is still new to us) some walls in our place and I’m loving the mixtures of wood, leather, and metal as of late. (See how it’s showing up in my house Here & Here.) At Target today I saw this huge lamp for not too bad a price ($89). It seems that modern lighting is getting more affordable (or maybe I’ve looked at Room & Board too often..) so I’m making a wish/priority list of what should grace our home next. Add these stools to the list please.
I found the bench on Pinterest and think it would look great in our entryway. The leather cushions are awesome and would match our new chair. It’s such a simple looking bench, but the contrast in stains in addition to the leather is great and perhaps easily built (honey)?
The tree rounds are PERFECT for fall & winter. Surely you, your friends, or family have some dry wood that you could chop and sand down. Jump on that this weekend.
The terrarium is so fun. I’ve seen some craiglist old ceiling lights out there and need to get my hands on one to make this!
What do you think of the crate? Using transfer paper or stencil, or freehand (for you loathingly talented people) you could add this to a box for anywhere in the house! I love the light wood and black image contrast.
The paper cone wreath image is in this month’s issue of Martha Stewart. I love the creamy yellow against that dark color– which, if you’ve been with me for a while, is the accent color I’ve used in much of my house. See here & here.
Finally, since it matches this here color scheme, the moon picture. It’s simple, not too hippy, and a great poster shape to add some diversity to your wall hangings.
I hope I can accomplish some of these projects this weekend to share with you next week. If you love them and make them, be sure to give a shout out back to me so I can see!
Happy weekend crafting to you!
