DIY, look for less

Duck tape goes GLAM

  1. bazaarofserendipity says:

    soo funny i was just thinking about this the other day! I love this pic from Instyle. That shell on the lucite is to die for! I wonder if the tape really works on the wall.. cant wait to find out

    i recently ran into this fabulous tape too except the one i found, at a friend's workshop, was bright fuchsia. He was taken back by my excitement. Funny how men can see the same thing we do and see something totally different 😉

    oh I would have never thought about it, to be honest I have never seen this kind of duck tape, love it though!

  4. Ashlee Brooke says:

    Love the idea of a cheap but chic way to spruce up a space! GOOD FIND! 😉 Ash

    It's not "duck tape", but it is foil tape that is used for ducts. I knew I had seen it before, but I couldn't remember and just spent the last few minutes looking that up. (Otherwise it would bug me all night, just how my brain works). Incidentally, I also found pretty colors in my search. 🙂

    I dig the way it looks in the in style pic, but I'm thinking maybe it wouldn't work so well on my horrible textured walls. Hmm, will have to experiment.

  6. Marti says:

    Oh my gosh…THANK YOU! A couple of weeks ago I was thinking of this and couldn't remember where (in my millions of magazines) I had seen it. In Style!

  7. Sarah La Rose says:

    Such a cool idea!! I'm not sure i'm brave enough to try it myself. It might be cool on a chalkboard wall…

    Great post!

  8. Katie says:

    how fun!

  9. Scientific Housewife says:

    That is really neat!

  10. Cristin says:

    Great find! I haven't used metallic tape yet in any design. You will have to keep us posted if you do.


  11. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    How cool is THAT?!

  12. Dallas says:

    Would I try it? As Juno would say – "Hells yeah!"

  13. Dina's Days says:

    This is really cool, I would love to try it on my walls. And I thought hot pink duct tape was cool!

  14. Emily A. Clark says:

    Great, great idea! I'm not a renter but it would certainly be good for my indecisiveness.

  15. Raylan says:

    Metallic Tape Molding? Totally genius!

  16. sketch42 says:

    Oh my lordy lord is that fn cool!!!!


    Just thinking of where I could possible put it!

  17. Dagny @ Beautiful Living says:

    I think I'm going to have to test that out in the master bedroom! Great idea!!!

  18. Kristen Andrews says:

    yes I would try it, very cool!

  19. Design Darling says:

    i love this idea! the instyle example looks great. just added you to my "on the daily" blog reads 🙂

    In my old NYC studio apt. I used metallic tape to cover up the brown plastic frame of a full length mirror that was already on the wall in the bathroom, in order to match the chrome stuff that was elsewhere in the bathroom, it was a quick and cheap fix!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
