Tired of that boring side-table or wooden chair you have? Bring new life to it and make a unique statement by decoupaging the furniture with magazine cut-outs. Warning: Don't do this to furniture the school provided. ;) For instructions from re-nest on how to decoupage furniture, click here. Happy decoupaging!

Love it! The idea is so unique, I would cover mine in super bright magazine pages.

I just finished something like this a couple of weeks ago!

I needed seating but could only afford these old lawn chairs, so I covered them in news paper. I have matching curtains too:


The pictures you shared make me wish I had a table to do :P!

Luinae--bright magazine pages would look fab!

Moselle--what a coincidence! i love the newspaper look. and you're very creative with the curtains!

anonymous--scavenge good will, antique stores, and thrift shops for on-the-cheap table finds. ;)
Ya know what...this looks very much like stuff I've done and sold?!/album.php?aid=20940&id=1632919320

That is a clever idea. Those chairs look so hip and edgy. I love the transformation. Great job!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
