One of our house tour recipients, Melissa (a hardworking interior design student), has a whole apartment full of good DIY ideas - like her use of a blik sticker as a stencil as shown above. Here are a few more of our favorites from around her place:
A plain pine IKEA bed reinvented with white paint and yellow velvet-covered panels on the headboard.
A simple branch becomes dramatic when painted a vibrant hue.
Reversible handmade pillows.
The rest of the blik stickers are cut and arranged in a wallpaper-like repeat to dress up the kitchen counter in where it faces the main living space.
See Melissa's entire tour here.
