DIY the Style: Projects Inspired by Justine & Angus' Toronto House Tour

Pin it button big

Justine and Angus, a fashion professional and chef, respectively, live in a 120-year-old house in Toronto. With the help of a designer friend, and some of Angus' own elbow grease, they created a fresh and stylish space for themselves and their son, Oscar. Here are three projects that help you get the look of their dining room and bring it to your own home.

1. Home Depot figured out a way to make a pretty stylish faux zebra hide rug which, among other things, is good news for all zebras. You could easily swap out their chosen metallic gold for black, and you'd be good to go.

2. Our very own Stephanie Strickland created a damn good bubble cluster chandelier, which is a great stand-in for the one seen here. Head on over to Stephanie's blog Swing N Cocoa for the full tutorial.

3. Angus, the homeowner, is very handy and built their dining room table. I'd venture a guess that the modern metal legs are a discontinued item from IKEA, but many other types are available. Get started with this post on sources for metal table legs, and finish off a wooden top with a durable high gloss finish. Dimples & Tangles will fill you in on how to get a similar lacquer look if you go that route.
