recent newlyweds jamie and her husband jake went searching for a bed, but were disappointed by the options they saw. they decided to make their own headboard out an old door. after some sanding, patching, and painting, they have created a gorgeous headboard that compliments their bedroom style perfectly. i would love to hang out in that room! the color scheme is sophisticated, neutral and relaxing. total cost of headboard, around $20. um, yeah…i think that’s a pretty good deal. great work, jamie and jake! -kate

what i wouldn’t give for an entryway…i just love the way benches look in halls and entryways, but sadly i have absolutely no room for a bench in my apartment. if i did have room, however, i would love to have a bench like alain and julie’s greet me when i come home. i love the combination of pattern and color. i see so many old coffee tables like this out there in dumpster/salvage/thrift store land, so i know i can snatch one up when i get the space and use this clever transformation as inspiration. thank you for sharing, alain and julie!
