DIY ART ( & Ikea )

Good morning everyone !

We've been really busy working on things but thought I'd pop in and share this - in case any of you are on your way to Ikea today 



Every now and then I come across something from that store that is just too cute for words !

Such as these black silhouette planters !

IKEA
For 6.99 each ( here in Montreal - you just know they're cheaper in the States, right ? )
From their website I thought they were stickers but they're actually black steel and the perfect Spring decor.

You can use the bottom rings to have them stand on a surface like this

IKEA
Or you can grab any old frame that you've backed with fence board - and rest them inside like this

DIY Wall Art

This simple fence planked frame is the perfect back drop for so many different styles !
I had a glitzy round mirror in it previously - but this is so " Spring like " right?

A nail in one of the " petals " holds them up - while the bottom pieces tuck perfectly into the bottom ledge of the frame


It rests over the guest room bed


Where the black curves tie in with the bed frame itself


Have a wonderful Monday everyone !
Much love
( what are you waiting for ?  Get to Ikea ! )

  3. What a great idea. It goes so nice with the boards in the background and the bed frame. You are so clever.
    I go often to that Ikea when I visit my daughter in Longueuil.
    Have a nice week Suzan. xo

  5. Very cute! IKEA is only 2 hours away, so it might be a bit before I get there. And I'll have to pack a bag lunch because I don't like their food. LOL Cute ideas, Suzan. Have a wonderful Monday!

  21. I was in Ikea last week-end and I didn't see them. Which can mean that a) they don't carry them in France or b) there were too many screaming children screaming in the area they were and I didn't get close to them !
