I love mother of pearl inlay furniture. The layer of texture it gives to a room is so COOL, but is it really worth the price tag? Larger pieces are several thousand dollars ( sometimes more than $10,000 for repros!) I bought this dresser at the flea market last fall for my girls bedroom. It fit perfectly between their twin beds and made a great joint nightstand. I thought the size and shape made this piece a great candidate for an inlay DIY. DIY Inlay Dresser

Make one signature piece or stack a bunch for a layered look!
Here's an easy way to keep track of the every-rotating lists of goals we all have! You'll need post-it notes, a pencil, markers, a ruler, and an 11 x 14 inch piece of bristol board or heavy card stock. Start by sketching out a simple layout with your pencil.

And one more square inside the rectangle, too!

I have been really excited about this project for a while, ever since I spotted it here . I thought this was the cutest idea, and immediately rushed off to research where I could find nice cheap shadow boxes and crayons. Flash forward a few weeks once I had assembled all my supplies, and this is what you get: I chose the letter B to start in honor of my little guy Basel, my adorable long-haired dachshund puppy.
