How to Give a $4 IKEA Pillow a Palm-Patterned Makeover

Pin this brilliant project and save it for a sunny day: Brush an inexpensive IKEA pillow cover with solar-activated dye, lay some leaves on top, and watch in wonder as the sun’s rays turn the white pillow an eye-popping orange. Of-the-moment palm patterns and new dyes in modern colors make this a fresh take on the classic blue sun print. And the best part? The look on your friends’ faces when you tell them you made it yourself.

The Right Way to Paint IKEA Furniture — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

We’re big fans of IKEA hacks and upgrades so we’re completely in favor of adding a little personality with paint. But not all IKEA furniture is alike, and therefore, not all requires the same paint treatment. I’m referring to IKEA’s popular material of choice: particleboard covered in laminate. It’s super affordable, which makes it a great option for budget-friendly projects, but can it really be painted sans streaking, bubbling, and peeling? Let me assure you, you can paint laminate furniture from IKEA, just follow these steps to keep your project from looking like a hack gone wrong.

Can You Wash a Rug at the Car Wash? We Find Out

(Image credit: Ashley Poskin )

When my friend Emily and I first met, I knew we were meant to be BFF’s after hearing all her wonderful tales of growing up in a big old victorian home. I was just 18, but already desperately in love with great big old houses, so of course I gravitated toward people who lived in them. One tale in particular she told, was the story of how each year her entire family would load up all the carpets in the house and take them to the carwash to be cleaned.

DIY to Try: How To Make Your Own Mudcloth — Apartment Therapy Tutorial

My love affair with mudcloth is well documented. If you are unfamiliar with the stuff, mudcloth is a somewhat heavy fabric, sewn in strips, and dyed naturally with mud. It usually has a graphic pattern of geometric lines and dots, in high contrast black and white. Given the process of making it, it’s no surprise that the real deal is also somewhat expensive. But, since it’s handmade, it’s also a good DIY project, without worry about screwing up too much or making it “perfect.”

Make These Fabric Clay Planters For All Your Cute Cacti — Apartment Therapy Tutorials

(Image credit: Erin Francois )

Summer is practically here; the windows are open, fresh air is billowing in, and I’ve got the unshakeable urge to fill my home with plants. So, in order to accommodate my new green friends, I’ve molded up some clay planters that mimic the look of fabric for a cool sculptural effect. And just for good measure, I’ve added a contrasting lining to really help the clay fabric folds pop around the perimeter of the planter. Look complicated? Not in the least. Just roll out the clay; then drape it and bake it. You’ll be on your way to a plant filled home in no time!
