Freshen up that boring office!

A little pattern goes a long way!  This is such a great way to take those average magazine holders and give them new life with a fun and fresh wallpaper. 

All you have to do is follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Trace the tall back panel of a magazine holder onto cardboard, and cut out.

Step 2: Using that template as a guide, trace 1 panel for each holder onto a width of decorative wallpaper (floral and geometric prints work best). Cut out.

Step 3: Squeeze craft glue onto the back of a magazine holder, and spread evenly with a sponge brush. Align paper with the back panel of the holder, and affix, smoothing out air bubbles as you go.

Step 4: Repeat with remaining paper and holders. File issues chronologically, and arrange the holders on a shelf to re-create the wallpaper’s design.

The Atomic Spa

This spa in Milan, Italy has to be one of the most interesting and elaborate gyms ever!  I would go to the gym just to enjoy the unique atmosphere!

Re-Use Your Old Furniture in a Fresh Way!

I saw this and thought it was a great way to re-use that table you’ve gotten from your grandmother or nearby antique store!  This would be so cute as an entry console or a small space that you have to get creative with!

Console How-To
If you don’t have the perfect table, scour flea markets. Damaged or worn tables will cost drastically less than their pristine counterparts.

1. Unscrew the extension mechanism from the bottom of the table. Remove the part of the table you won’t be using.

2. Sand the remaining part, then prime and paint it.

3. Nail or screw a two-by-two-inch piece of wood to the wall at the height of the tabletop so that the edge of the table rests on the wood support.

4. Screw through the top of the table to the wood support; fill the holes with wood filler, and paint over them.
