Miles Redd Inspired Deconstructed Striped DIY Vase

I have loved Miles Redd ever since I saw his spaces featured in Domino magazine years ago. I mean, the man is brilliant. I love his Deconstructed Stripe fabric pattern. My blog is named The Striped House, so I love a good stripe patternA group of other bloggers and myself challenged ourselves to create a DIY piece inspired by Miles Redd. So I chose to create a Deconstructed Stripe vase.

DIY Animal Print Bookcase Background

A couple years ago, I painted my fireplace and built-ins white. I love color and patterns and prints, but I cannot commit to them longer than a couple months. My likes and favorites change with every season it seems. I love how people change the inside color of bookcases, it's adds character and depth to a room. So I set out to create something temporary that would damage my built-ins.I love animal prints (I think they act as a neutral), but since I wanted to do this cheap, I was going to have to create it from scratch. I bought some stiff display board at the art store and they were able to cut it down to the exact sizes I needed to fit the back of my bookcase.If you'd like to read the full original post, you can read it here.

Built-In and Fireplace Makeover

Hello friends! When I moved into my house years ago, I was surrounded by yellow-oak cabinets, circa 1986. It was so sad. After a couple years of listening to my parents tell me "you can't paint wood, you can't paint brick..", I did what any independent, stubborn daughter would do, and I painted it all! I needed it to look brighter and happier, and feel lighter. Mission accomplished!

Greek Key Side Table Makeover

Hello friends! Years ago, I found a table with great lines, but I really did not like the paint finish. So I bought it with the intentions of painting it someday. Fast forward a couple years and I was making over my master bedroom ( here's the BEFORE) for the One Room Challenge. I needed another side table, and this fit the small space between my bed and wall.

Emerald Green Hall Closet Makeover

I had a dark under-used cramped hall closet (that is far too shallow and wide to use like a traditional linen closet). It was never properly painted, and was still the flat builder grade paint and bare shelves from when the house was built in 1986. I wonder how I lived with it this way for this long!
