Two Wasabi Tape DIYs to Adore

I love DIYs but sometimes they take TMT (too much time) so when I spot one that is unique, fun and fabulous – I go for it. I recently tried 2 awesome, easy and time-friendly DIYs using….

…patterned wasabi tape that elevated 2 simple objects to new decor heights – a phone charger and plain feathers. With the phone charger, just wrap it in your fave design of tape and you have created a brand new vibe for something you use everyday. Next tape idea, take plain old feathers (you can find these at your local art store) and tape the entire shape. Now you have a very cool decor accent for your home.

Have you tried using wasabi tape to elevate the everyday?

At first glance in photo 1, you may not even notice the gilded detailed doorknob but take a closer look and what do you see?

Bedroom DIY: Wood Paneled Wall

I love a good headboard in the bedroom but this idea takes it up a major nothc – an entire wall of wood. This fab bedroom is totally elegance meets rustic and it’s definitely all style. And these days it’s easy to create this idea as a DIY. Using wood panels from a local hardware store or vinyl decals that look just like wood, creating your very own wood panel wall is easy to achieve.

Sometimes you come across a design idea and think, “Wow, this is crazy!” while thinking “Wow, I could make this idea work.” I found this to be the case when spotting this wild bookshelf/entryway over at Architectural Digest new photo library, Design File. It’s a very cool mix of design, art installation and storage and…
