Yes, these fabulous lights are stripped bare right down to their skeleton wire frames, twisted cloth cords and bare bulbs. Yet, surprisingly these lighting fixtures have more character, style and charm in their little pink pull chains than most have in their entire lighting kit.

It used to be you only found decor wall letters in your favorite craft shop. They came in just a few sizes, fonts and materials like cardboard or craft pine wood. You could paint, stencil, or glue whatever you wanted on them. But how about something a little more intrinsic. What's a three letter word for do-it-yourself?
Scrabble letters are one of my favorite ideas because I play a lot of Scrabble and because they are so innately playful being that they derive from a game.
We found this D.I.Y. step-by-step on Something Turquoise easy to follow and complete for even a more novice D.I.Y.'er. Another effect might be to stain the wood a darker shade and then apply the hand painted lettering.
Midas Touch DIY
The home furnishing market is flooded with wall mirrors in every shape, size, material and finish. So why couldn’t I find one that worked for this space? On a mission to find just the right decor item I searched every online retailer, vintage shop, decor boutique, and home store. Finally, after scouring the national and local markets I spied this perfect second hand mirror at a favorite Omaha haunt, McMillan’s Antiques. The price, just $45.

"Subtle pops of silvery, sueded leather are woven with natural hemp to add just a hint of shimmer. Neutral enough to go with anything, it epitomizes that California-cool style we love. Finished with a cotton binding on either end." - Serena & Lily
What sold me, besides the amazing craftsmanship, is it is actually comfortable to the touch. Being made of a naturally stiff fiber like hemp you might think it uncomfortable to walk on barefoot or sit on. Not so much. The hemp is pliable and the integration of metallic suede softens the piece in a very inviting way.
What sold my customer , she wanted "kid" friendly, so small crumbs, dirt and "whatevers" disappear into the zigzag pattern and flecs of silver until she has a chance to take a light vacuum to it. Plus, the fact that it is reversible gives it a double life. You get two rugs for the price of one! That's smart & savvy.
