Design*Sponge Feature

If you're visiting my blog from Design*Sponge, welcome!  I invite you to check out my DIY projects, tour the townhouse and read about me (and read some even more random tidbits, if you're interested).  If you're looking for my Artful Ikea Expedit Hack tutorial, click here.

For Dans le Townhouse readers, Design*Sponge featured my Artful Ikea Expedit Hack (click here to see the feature)!  Fun, right?  The last time Design*Sponge featured a project, it was my beloved Felted Wool Billy Buttons (click here for the tutorial).

Thanks to everyone for the fabulous comments on my Ikea Hack.  I'm planning a detailed post on the artwork I created, so stay tuned.

Today is a boring day in the townhouse.  In preparation for setting up Hubby's desk, I'm finally filling holes in the baseboard we installed almost two years ago (well, at least the space behind his desk)!  Is there a biggest procrastinator blog award?!?



  1. Great news! Design Sponge is a good blog. Your earrings are really pretty.

  2. Congratulations on the D*S feature - totally deserved, that hack is awesome!

  3. Way to go on the D*S feature! Your hack was great.

  4. Thanks, Jen.

    Although the comments about it on my blog were all positive and it has been pinned like crazy, comments on D*S were pretty mixed. Some people were vehemently against using two hands to access a book. Lol.

    But I'm so happy some folks like it. Most importantly, it is working SO well for us - clutter hidden, plus I found a new place for art. What more could I ask for?

    The Expedit is actually beside/across-ish from my desk so it is always in my line of site when my eyes wander from my monitor. I'm staring at it lovingly now :)

  5. Congrats again Tanya on the D*S feature ;) So thrilled for you, and excited to learn that you're a fellow Canadian too! So excited to have learned about your fabulous blog. Cheers!

  6. Thanks, Amy! And I'm glad you commented on D*S so I could find your blog, too! I've added you to my blogroll because I am also a fan of great Canadian blogs.

  7. Congratulations on the feature! What an honour. That project totally deserves all the attention!

    PS I'm supper cold again and writing this at my desk with a huge sweater and socks... I swear we loose our immunity to cold every fall!


  8. Hi Emilie,

    Yep, I'm freezing too. And it snowed. I don't think it will get warm here again until spring. My posts will be laced with bitterness, from the bitter cold, lol.

  9. Congrats on the feature! :) I really love your paintings too :)

  10. Thanks, Ashley! That means a lot, coming from a crafty gal, like yourself.

  11. Congratulations on the feature Tanya!!
