There’s been a huge rise in modern style stencils available, especially on Etsy, that offer an affordable creative way to achieve great feature designs on a wall without having to use wallpaper.

The advantage is it’s easy to change as you can paint straight over the paint, as opposed to painting over wall paper or stripping the wallpaper!

home: made [ desk ]

Head to themerrythought.com to be inspired to make this fab desk. Using an Ikea drawer unit as a base with the addition of a wooden table top and a pair of legs, you are good to go.

Obviously you will need to have some basic woodwork skills or at least know someone that has to complete this project, but it’s a great one.

We love the use of the drawer unit, it looks like it was meant to be part of the table and more expensive than it would actually be.
