Multiple Taper Candle Holder | Inspired By Charm

I love this candle holder and the fact that IBC has shown them in two colour ways - black and gold and white and black. Black and gold is a big colour combo right now - you’ll be seeing it more and more in the stores. But there’s something classic and black and white. This would be great for a centrepiece for your table - like a modern candelabra!

Sharpie ‘Wallpaper’ | Vintage Revivals
A while ago you might remember that I DIYed my bathroom wall with stickers. It didn’t end well - the humidity made them fall off constantly even though they were meant to be akin to vinyl stickers. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted! But my wall is now plain and sad and needs something! After a bit of pinterest-ing I came across this super easy DIY by the amazing Vintage Revivals blog. I’m thinking of doing this with a white paint pen, but the black looks pretty cool too!

Stacked Plywood Bench | Vintage Revivals
I’ve finally gotten round to decorating my bedroom after putting my wallpaper up last year! I really want a bench for the end of my bed but all the ones I like are, of course, insanely expensive! I love the hairpin legs on this bench and the fact that it’s so easy to make. You will need a few power tools if you want to make this (well, it will make it a lot easier and quicker if you do!) like a power saw and power sander. If you don’t need a bench, you could make it wider and use it as a coffee table too.

Pom Pom Table Runner | Haberdashery Fun
If I could choose any store from America to come to Australia, it would be Anthropologie Not the clothes mind you, but the homewares! I can’t tell you how hard it is for me to find A) Pretty tablecloths for my round dining table and B) Pretty table runners. Please note, this may be something to do with living in Adelaide! I don’t think I’m going to attempt tablecloths but when I saw this table runner I thought: I can sew a straight line, and I love pom poms - sold! Do you know what I thought this might be nice for as well? A throw for the end of your bed for a bit of colour and fun. Though to be honest, I would pom pom my whole house if I could. Now if someone can send me some round Anthropologie tablecloths I would be very appreciative xxoo

Brass Hanging Planter | Nalle’s House
2014 will be for me the year of the hanging planter! I bought myself some rope and tried one of the DIY’s I’ve featured before. It……did not end well. RIP plant. Note to self, make sure your knots are even! But I still like the look of hanging planters and I think this one would be more stable. Plus I am all about bronze right now so this is right up my alley. Perfect with modern interiors, and you can hang it inside or outside. This time I might give it a test before I hang it first though…

Aluminum Chair Makeover | A Beautiful Mess
Some of you who read the British Mollie Makes mag (there’s also a German and American version I believe…) would have seen a project similar to this recently. I saw it, I loved it, I could not for the life of me understand what the directions were saying. I personally think that the directions in this makeover are a bit easier to follow. But regardless, it’s a super cool makeover for something that normally gets chucked when it breaks, so being able to upcycle it in such a bright and colourful way is a huge positive in my mind!

Midcentury Modern Side Table | A Beautiful Mess
Midcentury modern is my favourite style of furniture. It fits in perfectly with my little house, and it looks great to boot. I like the idea of making my own as I find that side tables are usually too short for my sofas - I have very high arms, which makes grabbing for coffee a risky action! I think this would look fab with ‘dipped’ legs - maybe white or hot pink?!

Upcycled Vintage Plates | Honestly WTF
Does anyone else love collecting vintage china? I have picked up this dangerous habit from my mother, who has an amazing collection of chintz Winton & other pieces she has collected. She also has a knack of finding gorgeous embroidered tablecloths. I might have knicked a couple of them! Though I have some plates that I adore and would not alter in any way, there are a few that could do with a bit of an update. I love these pieces inspired by Melody Rose. They’re still vintage and pretty but with a bit of a modern edge. Keep in mind that most waterslide paper is not to be washed or eaten off of (though there are some types of paper that you bake in the oven that you can then eat off of and wash, but check before you do!). Check out Free Pretty Things For You for free vintage pics to decorate your china!

Crepe Paper Petal Wall Hanging | Oh Happy Day
I know I post a lot of wall hangings but I think they’re a great temporary way of adding colour and texture to your wall. This one is a perfect example of both! It looks difficult but if you can cut out circles you can make this, I promise. Wouldn’t this be great for a wedding too? Maybe on a larger scale as a backdrop - gorgeous!
