DIY Friday: Hexagon Table

We love simple DIY projects. They make us feel accomplished and crafty and boost our fragile egos rather than shatter them with the cold, hard realization that we aren’t the next Martha Stewart clones (pre-jail). That’s why this “Hexy Table” from Young House Love is one to try. Painting a table? Sounds easy enough. Just need the right tools and the right, old table scooped up off a neighbor’s sidewalk. Check out the details here and you can Mod up your living room like it’s 1965.

DIY Friday: Oversized Light Fixture

Change is not only an inevitability, but also a necessity when it comes to home furnishing. Budget may not permit a complete decor makeover every year, but little DIY projects like this oversized light fixture from Young House Love can really make all the difference when you just need something to give. Not to mention it only takes $32 and an hour of your time.

After taking an existing light fixture and an oversized lampshade, these crafty bloggers were able to transform their entire office with very little effort. By cutting a neutral, slightly opaque piece of fabric and fastening it to the bottom of the lampshade before attaching it to the fixture, the lampshade element of the piece vanishes and a softer light glows while giving a very chic vibe to an everyday room.
