REINCARNATION: Industrial Pendant Light

So David is quite the handy man around the house these days! Nothing is better than a man who really knows his way around Home Depot (no matter how many trips we take there on a give weekend 😉 ) We are doing small projects around the house that make a BIG difference, and one of those projects is changing out our dated lighted fixtures! I am currently on the hunt for some great light fixtures, and one of them is an industrial pendant light for over my kitchen table. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for industrial pendant lights and a few of my favorites that I have found while shopping!

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

REINCARNATION: Wooden Welcome

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

I have loved this picture since I saw it on Facebook and I keep picturing what type of home I would have to have to recreate this look. I feel like bold design choices like wood on a wall are kind of like that favorite daring top we keep in our closet but never seem to wear because we don’t know if we can “pull it off.” Well here is my bold choice to try and recreate this look (digitally of course!) So here goes!

First to tackle the wooden aspect of the wall I looked in to laminate flooring and how you might be able to put it on your walls at home. So of course I had to do a little digging and found this great tutorial on how to install laminate flooring on your walls at HomeDepot.com (just click on the image and it will take you to the video if you’re interested)

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

If you’re really unsure about the idea of a wooden wall check out magazine article on how hotels frequently use this technique!

Even if you’re not interested in a wooden wall near your entry way, you could paint it a bold color and still add these accessories:

This is the Ascend Taupe 55" Open Storage Unit from Crate and Barrel for $399. Love this mounted on the wall for shoe and bag storage at the entryway!
