Blogging Decorating Cents: Episode 2812

Feb 28, 2007

Last night's Decorating Cents on HGTV, featured an interesting guest bedroom makeover. They went for a "Mod Woodland" theme, which could have been inspired by Jane & Darko's space from last year's Smallest Coolest. While I didn't think everything turned out that successful (especially a lot of the accessories- and the flowers totally killed it for me), they did have some fun DIY project ideas worth mentioning.

For the headboard, they used industrial roofing/siding, which they painted and bolted to the wall The pillows with the deer graphic was actually created by printing a silhouette onto iron-on transfer paper via a copy store.

I'm not sure yet how I feel about the bedside lamp, but it was a fun idea. They used a simple hanging light cord kit, and suspended it inside an oversized vase. For the walls, they painted graphic trees, which were pretty easy to create, using masking tape. I think the concept of this could be really fun as an alternative to just painting simple stripes.
