In, you know, just my daily reading of the online version of hit magazine Today's Parent, we found this. Do we like IKEA? No. Why because it fall apart, is make of fake pulp materials and uses slave labor. But do we like this IKEA hack? Yes.
Now, I wonder how long it'll be until IKEA knocks off this IKEA repurposing.
Finding just the right piece to add a bit of life and color to your home can be a challenge, which is why it's no secret that we prefer just making things on our own. It's one thing to spend your time bouncing from store to store checking out hip, artisanal goods, but it's another thing entirely to be able to call the decor in your home truly your own.
When high-concept ideas and a simple execution come together properly, the results are absolutely sublime. Bend employs sharp, interesting design principles to cut through all the noise and broadcast a signal of smart living and inescapably good taste.
A home is a collection of stuff. Stuff, though, is always more than just junk. Stuff is memories. Stuff is imperfections. Perfections. Stuff is the good, and the bad in equal measures. Stuff is created, and stuff is curated. Of course, every home is always more than just the sum of the collection of pats you have inside it...but collecting the right elements can be its own special challenge.
Doing stuff outside is great in the summer months. No question about it. You can make use of outdoor spaces in ways that are pleasant and relaxing, and aren’t really available to you during the rest of the year (especially if you don’t have the benefit of living somewhere that basically just has a year-long summer). The problem with all this, though, is that nobody likes looking at gross outdoor furniture as it gathers dust, soil, and weird-looking water patterns from getting sprinklered at and rained upon.
