A Beautiful Mess: Home Decor Hi guys, Mandi from Making Nice in the Midwest here! Recently I was really impacted by this Don Draper quote that come across my Pinterest feed: "Make it simple, but significant." Lately I've been attempting to live out this mindset in how I decorate our home, and seeing that quote was a powerful way of putting what I've been feeling into words. I think having less things can be challenging for certain people (like myself), but really cutting back and focusing on the impact of simple and beautiful things can make a home environment more enjoyable to live in. We've been updating our little mid century ranch little by little, and most recently purchased this beautiful vintage-inspired light from CB2. Before installing it, I thought we had a great opportunity for a simple but significant decorative element on the ceiling. Supplies: Step One: Draw lines diagonally from the corners of the square piece of plywood and also across the middle of each side. -Mandi

What's That ?! I'm looking at the picture, and I'm thinking to myself, "What's that ?!" The site is in french, but I knew the table was recycled and repurposed...but from what? Ready for this? Repeat after me...a washing machine drum! Made by Isa also has more great repurposed and recycled projects that you'll want to see. And it seems as though the French have a thing for washing machine drums. After stumbling on these two tables, of course I was curious. I also have to include this little BBQ because it is so deliciously rustic in its natural environment. This practical drum-turned-fire pit comes from Dr. Now, back to France. The more you look...the more you find. First life...cleaner. And these come to us from Bulgarian Alex Kovatchev via Yanko Design. This column lamp from Paul Morini really would be the perfect compliment to any warehouse loft or space. This is the waiting room at a medical office in France. By nature, a washing machine is quite DIY. Until next time... Mike Stumble this post

untitled My Favorite Things - Mason Jar Revival My friend, "L", recently asked on Facebook…”Should I really buy another mason jar?” As if it were really a question! Here's a small collection of DIY mason jar projects I’ve found most inspiring lately. If you have a ’must see’ mason jar project, leave a comment at the end of this post with the website so we can all check it out. Have a seat in the blue velvet chair, relax, and enjoy the show! Who can resist these cookie mix cuties - spotted at Bakerella. They call this one the redneck wine goblet. Away from the kitchen and on to the home decor. It's simple and effective - as seen at Napa Style. It's no wonder this beauty is for sale at Etsy. This casual chandelier was used in a wedding tent, but would be fab in a dining room as well. They were just experimenting and ended up with this little wall light gem - at Kelly + Olive. I think I would have preferred that all the jars were the same size, but kudos to Liz Marie for this project. I love this pin cushion from Andy Rubio. p.s.
