INDUSTRIAL CHIC goes SUBURBAN!

Industrial Chic Is HOT right now! So much fun, and a great way to add some flair to your decorating! 
I'm working on four or five new INDUSTRIAL CHIC items for my etsy shop now... stayed tunded

Check out this article from MELISSA RAYWORTH - Associated Press

The builders of the early 20th century's factories and warehouses would be amazed. Elements used back then to create sparse, utilitarian work spaces — things like rough wooden tables, rolling carts, metal filing cabinets and industrial lighting — are now hot items in home decorating.
These pieces, along with exposed brick walls and cement floors, first became popular when urban industrial spaces were being transformed into chic loft apartments.
But the trend has made its way from downtown lofts to suburban living rooms. Homeowners are adding industrial flair to even the most traditionally decorated houses.
Emily Henderson, host and designer for HGTV's upcoming series "Secrets from a Stylist," is giving an industrial makeover to a Spanish-style house for an episode due to air in April.
Decorating with industrial elements "is so much fun," she says, and is becoming popular nationwide. Edison-style light bulbs are back. And current offerings from retailer Restoration Hardware include chairs and tables meant to look as though they were built from old airplane parts.
It may sound challenging to mix items that evoke century-old manufacturing into your modern-day house. But designers say it's less complicated than you'd think: Industrial style blends easily into houses that already have a clean-lined, modern look.

Something OLD is NEW again...

My new latest PASSION, is finding all kinds of "thing-a-mabobbie's"- and what others consider to be "junk", and transforming them into LIL' GEMS! We all have tons of stuff laying around (especially in the garage) from past projects or room makeovers. Well... why not turn them into something you can use again. Here is a couple of my latest projects. Hope you enjoy this beautiful day.... I'm looking forward to Spring- and some warmer weather!








I'm linking up to these Super Duper fun parties, Y'All!
