Hello there my friends!
Over the weekend I took at look at my top blog post and discovered that the post where I share things I love or inspire me are really popular. So here’s the latest installment of My Favorite Things!

I ventured out to Ikea last Friday after having stayed away for several months.
A trip to Ikea is not typically something you just do on the spur of the moment. There are a couple of things you’ll need to do before heading to Ikea…
1) You have to think about the day and time to go (in order to maintain your sanity)
2) if you’re married, you have to get the hubs on board at least a week in advance so that he can store up some patience for what is sure to be a few hours of browsing, oohing and awing and creative brainstorming. Oh, and you just might have to promise to take him out to lunch and you pay for it…just saying!
With both to-do’s check off my list the hubs and I headed to Ikea.

Happy Friday! Just a few things to inspire your creativity!
I love the styling of the shoe closet! Such a great way to display the pieces you have and create wearable combos at the same time.
Love this idea for Up-Styling a piece of Ikea furniture!
Since my handbags are in constant rotation, I just might have to try making one of these for myself.
If you’re looking an inexpensive, easy and chic placemat, look not further than the scrapbook aisle at your local craft store for 12 ” x 12″ glittered scrapbook paper.

So, how was your weekend? I hope it was filled with all things good.
Today we are talking lamps. Unique lamps to be specific. Have you ever made your own DIY lamp or thought about having a lamp made using a favorite decorative piece? If you are looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind lamp this just might be an idea for you.
You could turn a ceramic ginger jar into a lamp like this…

The beauty of many of the Ikea tables is that they can be transformed and UpStyled with paint.
The beauty of paint is that it is the cheapest design tool you can use to transform your home.
The combination of paint and Ikea furniture can yield stunning results.
The Malm Dressing Table painted grey
The Docksta Table with a painted gold base
The Vittsjo Table painted gold
The Melltorp Table painted yellow
The Docksta Table painted in black chalkboard paint
This round side table is discontinued but the Lindved Table is similar

Now I’m in the mood to head to Ikea and then paint something. How about you?

One of the main reasons I started my blog was to share my love of design with others. I wanted to write about the tips and techniques I use when I’m designing a space for a client or myself and inspire others to create the home and parties they dream of. In the 3 years of writing this blog (I can’t believe it’s been 3 years) I’ve shared lots of design advice from decorating outdoor spaces and bathrooms to creating work and hobby spaces that fuel your creativity, to entertaining and gifting ideas and tips. As we head into a new year, I have so many more tips and ideas I’ll be sharing with you but for now I thought it would be fun to take a look back as some of the most popular design inspired post here on ConfettiStyle!
Enjoy and be inspired (again)!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today, I look forward to having you along for the ride in 2014!
