I know that everyone and her cousin who has a blog about interiors has already written about O'verlays this month, but a lot of the people who visit this page every day are not big blog readers (Hi Mom's friends!) and I am so excited about this product I have to share it.
The concept is that you can now buy pre-cut, paintable pieces of fretwork that are made to be affixed to Ikea furniture and completely transform it into something special. The company was started by two designers (and bloggers) who recognized a hole in the market, and offered an inexpensive solution. The panels are around $20 each, and I can't wait to get some!
I am obsessed with the large greek key pattern on a night stand, like in the first photograph. I plan to get a Rast chest (the unfinished, $35 option) and 3 strips of the greek key fretwork. I'll probably do a gray and white paint scheme, for optimum reusability throughout the house, but a cobalt and white pattern is also pretty appealing. I would also love to do a colorful combination in a kid's room one day - there are so many possibilities!
So, who else is excited now?!
