I like how this chest of drawers is transformed into a fabulous eye-catching piece for dining room or kitchen – thank to some chalkboard paint. Labelling the drawers with chalk adds a fun detail. To achieve strong, bright letters that don’t smudge easily, wipe the surface with a damp cloth just before you write, then leave to dry naturally for cute labels that make it easy to delegate setting the table. I found this idea on homelife, here you find a ‘how to apply chalkboard paint guide’.
I love this vegetable garden: it is practical (for small gardens and balconies), inexpensive and, not unimportant, it looks good! Wooden wine boxes are used as plant containers.
This lovely house bookshelf has been made out of a sheet plywood. But you can also use a cheap bookcase (for example from IKEA) and turn it into a dollhouse / bookshelf. A fun project to do and not that difficult! Have you seen that tissue box that doubles as a chimney?!

In the latest issue of Covet Garden you can find instructions on how to stencil your own cushions.
On emmas designblogg I found this great lamp created by Annaleena. What you need to make this lamp yourself is basically a lamp shade, wooden beads and rug strips – the easiest way to make these is to tear white bed sheets into thin “rag rug strips”. You can find full instructions here.
I loving the kitchen by the way!
