I like going to the Bachman's Fall Ideas House for the beautiful Autumn colors ... but also for the clever home dec ideas they have.
Like these book shelves. The books are shelves. Literally.
An old wooden box hung as a shelf ... love how they've used old jars and then made a chalk board on the front so you can label what's in them.
Framed metal numbers turned into a headboard in a little boys room.
They took a cabinet and lit it from the inside out. It brought what could be a dark corner to life and let you see what was stored in there!
Same thing with another refurbished cupboard ... they painted the inside teal and then added shelves and electricity to light it up.
Teal is the latest color paired with black and white.
Anyone can make rolled paper flowers to fill a wall urn ... these were made from ripped magazine pages ... they had a lot of body and were so interesting to look at!
Used bike rims as wall art and wall organizers!
So many of the pieces were made from items you'd have at home ... or that were easy to get at the flea or thrift. I think they're showing that recycling can be hip and cool and fun!!
