I’m really fascinated by vintage yardsticks as decor. There’s something about the combination of typography and aged wood patina that really appeals to me. And I’m not the only one! Search Pinterest for “yardstick projects” and you’ll find dozens of creative ways to turn rulers into works of art. Here are some of my favorites.
I did a little looking and found some fantastic home decor ideas you can make yourself using techniques similar to the one I used to make my marbled picture mats. Colorful marble textures are definitely the next big trend, so I recommend trying out one of these quick and easy projects. Enjoy!
I spotted this lovely living room at House of Turquoise, and it just seemed to embody the fresh, airy feeling of Spring. The living room that caught my eye looks so light and cool with it’s combination of washed out sun yellow and sky blue. I definitely love the custom woodwork (that window seat!) and the eclectic blend of furnishings. I’m happy to say that if you want a room like this, you can have it! I’ve collected tutorials for projects that can help you copy some of the fun design elements of this room and put them in your own house. Enjoy!
