but I’d do it in copper.
Someday I WILL get my beautiful, perfect vintage Nishiki Cresta back from the depths of my father’s ohio garage, and someday I WILL give it a bike-friend, and I WILL mount them like this on my apartment. I won’t say New Mexico will get an Ikea, but a girl can dream!
Skipping the intro post to get right to the point, because who cares about why I’m blogging about power drills and how much I like certain coasters? I love design, I love making shit, and most of the time I’m kind of embarassed about it but I can’t really stop. And this is usually when we take to the internet, yeah?
So, first up: the wallpaper, literally. I found this removable fabric starch wallpaper project on the yoozh, apartment therapy, and ended up modifying the directions pretty substantially to make the project work for the wonky slanted ceilings in my attic apartment. Add some $2 Pier 1 hooks for some open clothes storage and shabam! I have the Prince-meets-Cruella-meets-Urban Outfitter’s-dressing-room of my dreams (though, disclaimer, it’s not done–I’ve got an intense scheme to add some lace ribbon business between the hooks for cheap earring storage, hence the ugly vacuous space (note: if you don’t like clutter, you probably won’t like this blog).
How to after the jump for anyone who wants to adapt this to some less california-raisin inspired effect (or even if you do).
