Found These at Target Today!

Just got home from a quick trip to Target to pick up a few household supplies.

As I passed by the home goods section, a few newer items caught my eye.

Loving the bright orange on these stools / side tables!

These wooden and felted stools are pretty cool too.  If only I had a place to put them!

I thought this cork table lamp was pretty cute!  Might have to pick one up on my next trip.

And this side table … hexagons, metallic finish … not bad, Target, not bad.

Star Wars Decor

My husband has a thing for Star Wars [gee, what guy doesn’t?].  He has a few tees and some little figurines [that we keep in his upstairs office – aka out of sight] and he and Ava have Star Wars battles with the lightsabers he bought her.  A little bit of novelty can be fun.

Like this print from Restyle Prints that I bought & framed and allowed into our living room.

I actually kind of like this Imperial Forces Wallpaper from Super7.

And this nursery featured on Apartment Therapy?  Almost makes me want to make another baby.

Another bedroom – by Mary of Quite Contrary.

Pimp That Globe

Today’s post is inspired by these beautiful collage globes by Artist, Wendy Gold.

Aren’t they just to die for?  The one shown below can be personalized to showcase your very own family tree.  Super cool.

Other people are doing some pretty awesome stuff with globes too … things you can even do yourself.  Here are a few of my favorite DIY globe projects:

This chalkboard globe made by Halligan Norris for Design*Sponge looks amazing and is fairly simple to make.

This global bowl made by Cathe of JustSomethingIMade was made by sawing a globe in half, and lining with old book pages and some glitter – pretty neat idea [and it makes one for you, one to give away!].

Get the tutorial for this cool Globe Pendant lamp from Project Create a Home.  I think I would add some metal hardware on the top, but otherwise genius.

DIY Chandelier Roundup

Lately I have been seeing some pretty cool chandeliers that [if I had time and were the least bit crafty] I could make myself.  Since I’m probably not going to, I thought you might.  If you do, send me some pics!

Here are my faves:

This Bubble Yarn Lampshade by Pickles was featured on re-nest and is actually something I might try to make.  It’s kind of like doing paper-mache and kids do that, so I should be able to do this, right?

These DIY Bubble Chandeliers have been popping up everywhere.  I like this gold version from Jean Pelle.

The picture above is of Pottery Barn’s Edison Chandelier and there is a similar DIY version hack on Instructables using Hemma lights from Ikea..  It doesn’t look like a beginner project, but it could save you $300.

These Paperclip [yes paperclip] Chandeliers are from Resdesign Technologies.  You can purchase one custom made, get a downloadable PDF tutorial, or a semi-assembled kit.

This unique piece from Lindsey Adleman Studio is highly customizable.  She also has some bubble chandelier options on her blog.

This Birdcage Chandelier [via Kitschy Galore] doesn’t come with a tutorial, but looks pretty easy to make.  I’ve sent her a message to see if I can get the DIY from her and if I do, I will post it!

The detailed tutorial for this Horchow drum shade knock-off [original on the right] can be found on A Penny Saved.

If you have a DIY Chandelier Tutorial you would like to share, just send me an email or Tweet me!  XO
