When Kata shared her fantastic, colorful play kitchen with us we couldn't help but poke around on her blog a bit. Even though it's written in Hungarian, it was quickly apparent that Kata is a fearless DIY'er. It seems every corner of her home has been customized with her projects, including this wall of stripes - shelves and all.

These are just plain floating shelves (Ikea's Lack) made so much more interesting with painted stripes, thick and thin. A simple idea that packs a nice visual punch.

Google translate isn't the best for Hungarian, but luckily Kata takes plenty of photos of her projects so you should have no problem seeing how she's completed this. You can find her post here at Kicsi Haz/Little House. That gorgeous orange, string-like pendant lamp? Yep, she made that, too - find her video showing the process here.

Kata, you're one to watch!
