Have your cake
This tired two-tier side table is a
thrift store staple. But Elaine Uehlein
of the smash-hit DIY wedding blog
stylemepretty.com saw so much
more—or less. She sawed off the
legs and the rickety lower tier,
keeping only the scalloped top tier,
and reinterpreted it as a curvaceous
cake stand. She screwed
a wood candlestick (the
new base) to the center,
then painted both pieces
a delicious shade of pink.
Shimmery gold paint
highlights the inside of
the piece. And why not?
A girl who blogs about
beautiful weddings all day
has to flash a bit of bling.
Lori Andrews looked to the things she loves—
design, photography, and fashion—when
transforming this medicine cabinet into
a key cubby. The interior designer behind
the10centdesigner.com measured the existing
door, then had one of her own Polaroid photos
plaque-mounted to medium-
density fiberboard cut to
the door’s dimensions. She
removed the old door, painted
the entire piece bright white,
then installed the new door.
Nails pounded into the top
are the perfect place to hang
keys. And she repurposed one
shelf to create a slot for mail
and messages at the bottom.
