gilded furniture hacks

obsessed! TOTALLY obsessed with gilded furniture, especially since it's the cheaper version of mirrored furniture, which i would LOVE to buy, but after all the money that's been spent on renovations....i think this is the way to go to get the look.
Ikea Hackers reader, Morgan S, posted this Edland dresser tutorial today and it's great, but i think the hack that inspired it is soooooooooo much more beautiful! Sorry, Morgan, just being honest.....

the original DIY was posted on Little Green Notebook, thanks for the guide, Jenny!

hallway bathroom decor - shower curtains

anthropologie is crazy expensive, but their products are great inspiration pieces for DIY projects. I really want to make the hallway bathroom a VERY girly space and i think these curtain could add that elegant feminine touch i'm looking for.

Diamond Falls Shower Curtain

Bustled Shower Curtain

final color selection

The bf convinced me not to do stripes cause it might make the hallway look a lot more narrow than it is already, (sad face). Although i will always long for stripes and still feel pain for the loss at the chance i am VERY happy to share my final color choices:

Dining Room/ Kitchen Color is....
Pecan Sandie (Semi-Gloss)

Living Room & Hallway Color is....
Irish Mist (Eggshell)

Hallway bathroom Color is....
Cool White (Semi-Gloss)

inspiration for the bedrooms and entertainment room carpet.

Martha Stewart Olana Monks Cloth

Martha Stewart Olana Cappuccino

I found a texture and color mix that i like at Home Depot tonight, Solano, Steele, Looper (LP.9), but i can't find a sample online. These Martha Stewart samples are pretty close to what i'm talking about.
