Ikea pendant hack

I just saw this DIY hack of an ikea pendant light over at design sponge. As always, I wish I had an Ikea by me.



I was looking over at Grassroots Modern and saw their link to make a lamp using an old  washing machine barrel, which looks surprisingly attractive.

Curtain Rod

I saw this idea to make your own curtain rod from metal conduit over at shelterrific. I only wish I’d seen it before I went and bought the run of the mill curtain rod I have from Lowes.
