While checking email and catching up on the blogs I follow I found this great post on HGTV’s blog on How to Build A Modern Art Shelf. I love DIY projects, and this one looked especially easy. When I scrolled down to the final picture below, however, something just seemed off to me.
So I posed a question to the design team here at Vastu: “Is this shelf too high to really display art? Or is the height appropriate for the kinds of pieces the blogger chose to put up?”
Here’s what they had to say…
…follow the advice of Cococozy and cut up a large map, or poster, and frame it!

While wallpaper has made a huge comeback on many wall surfaces around the world, there are some things to do with wallpaper other than apply it directly to a wall. Have some leftover wallpaper from a project or just looking for a few fun DIY project ideas? Well, here you go…
