DIY || Console table and Art Inspiration

August 21, 2013




Browsing through some interior design magazines I came across these two images that caught my attention- Carolina Herrera's zebra console table and Carlos Mota's  elephant head aluminum paper sculpture.  Both look really cool and like they aren't too hard to do.  First off-

For the Carolina Herrera zebra table I think this pretty white Ikea Malm console would be ideal for this first project. And then for the aluminum paper sculpture you really don't need much but some cardboard or wires to help shape the beginning of whatever animal you chose to make!  Both are easy DIYs that pack a punch!

  2. I love the idea of the Ikea console hack to mimic the inimitable Carolina Herrera!

    By the way, my son is in Spain right now and has fallen in love with your gorgeous country! He didn't end up going to Malaga - the transportation was difficult for a six day trip so he ended up going to Madrid and Barcelona. He calls every day just gushing with how beautiful it is and how lovely the people are.

    Enjoy your day! xoxo
