Before & After: Cathy's Color Gradient IKEA Maskros

Before & After: Cathy's Color Gradient IKEA Maskros

The Maskros is a genius item - affordable, great looking, a true statement piece due to its impressive size and unique look. But beyond all that it seems that the world of design has taken it on as the ultimate "makeover" item. It's on its way to inclusion in the DIY hall of fame as the most re-imagined lamp of 2011!

Cathy of Picket Fence Design sent us in photos of her take on the Maskros makeover - an up to the minute design-wise take on adding a gradiated color - the pink is fresh and fun and definitely fashion forward. In fact, the color treatment on this project reminds me of the Blur sofa from Moroso that I spotted in Milan.

She has an excellent photo tutorial on how to get this look youreself - check it out: DIY Flower Chandelier | Picket Fence Design (Note: there is music on at Cathy's blog - adjust your sound as necessary)

Thanks, Cathy!
