6 FABULOUS IKEA LACK SHELF IDEAS

I always love a good IKEA hack or, for that matter, a good IKEA, slash, IKEA-inspired idea. In this case, it is the LACK shelf.  And this shelf is certainly not “lacking” in any way, shape or form. I simply love these inspirational uses for their shelf product and hope that you find these ideas to be inspirational too.

EASY COPPER PROJECTS FOR EVERY ROOM

I am always on the hunt for inspiration and there is an amazing wealth of creativity to be discovered. My goodness, the internet has certainly unleashed the proverbial Pandora’s box on this subject. While exploring one of the many home decor magazines that I subscribe to, House Beautiful, I came across some wonderful DIY projects using copper as the metallic inspiration for creating some rather unique and cost effective home decor items. With the holidays upon us, any one of these items would certainly be a wonderful gift or accent to a holiday table. These are just a few inspiring items that I found and wanted to share, to see more visit House Beautiful.
