Do you have a frumpy old filing cabinet at home? Most of us need our filing cabinets for extra storage and to keep our documents organized. However, they do not always make for an appealing room accent. Have you thought about painting a filing cabinet, or, better yet, using wall decals to spruce it up? We have! Check out this quick video where we totally renovate a filing cabinet from drab to fab using a nautical blue spray paint and WallPops by Jonathan Adler stripes!
Thinking about giving your home office decor a face-lift? Or, looking to put your filing cabinet to new use? Not just for organizing paperwork, those ubiquitous metal filing cabinets that seem to lurk in everybody’s home can be fantastic storage for everything from art supplies and photos to holiday decorations and even shoes. However, there is no reason to settle for the industrial-blah look of a typical file cabinet! Paint a cabinet and sass it up with WallPops! This DIY finling cabinet project was simple and came out gorgeous! We used the WallPops by Jonathan Adler Carnaby Stripes and a nautical blue spray paint. The total cost of this project was under $30!
This is your life! Surrounding yourself with photos of your favorite imagery, family and friends, including pets, and of course photos of you giving your best face, is virtually guaranteed to make you happy. Life is beautiful! Sadly, one of the tragic, unintended consequences of technology today is that too many of our precious pictures live only on our iphones, computer screens, and on Facebook. In these virtual realms, our lives are buried in files, folders, and timelines, nestled among our desktop icons and targeted ads. It’s time to flaunt it! Let it all hang out. Smile like you mean it. You are beautiful, your kids are adorable and you are a pretty amazing amateur photographer. That photo you took on your last vacation? You know the one, it’s all artistic and the light is just right? And the one of your Mom from forever ago, looking so young and skinny and fashionable, the one that is probably wallowing in a desk drawer somewhere? Put them on the wall for everyone to see! Not only do your pictures make great decor impact, they also lift your spirits!
WallPops has a very vogue solution to this modern mire. Peel and stick wall frame decals are the perfect way to showcase your sketches, portraits, and snapshots. Cover your whole wall with pictures and never lift a hammer! For a classic black and white photo frame gallery, check out these frames by Jonathan Adler, enhanced with a silver mylar shimmer.

For more of a boutique look, there are 6 different types of European Frame Kits on the site, from vintage to museum painting style frames. Or, for a curvy French couture salon wall, Jonathan Adler has a sassy set of colored enamel frames, sure to display your images with flair.
Easter eggs are a tradition not to be missed! From Easter egg hunts, to Easter Egg trees and chocolate Easter Eggs, there is a widespread symbolic connection between pretty eggs and Springtime fun. Even the White House has an annual Easter Egg party on their lawn! This year, we have an egg-cellent collection of Easter Egg Design ideas, all made with WallPops! Did you know that WallPops can easily be cut to any shape and size? They are perfect for DIY crafts. These Easter eggs are all peel and stick so you can arrange and re-arrange them on any smooth flat surface from walls and furniture, to appliances like the fridge! There are no messy dyes to stain your fingers and clothes, and there is no boiling required : ) Just get creative cutting out egg shapes and polka dots, stripes, flowers… whatever strikes your fancy! We used some of our favorite WallPops pastels, including Oh Pear green, Flirt Pink, and Purple Perk. We also got cutsey and cut out some simple baby chick shapes from Lello Yellow. Check out the album for a sampling of our Easter DIY crafts.
Who doesn’t love a makeover video? Just think of the movies, where the dorky girl (who is always pretty the whole time) gets a music video makeover into a bombshell, a la Katy Perry in TGIF, Brittany Murphy in Clueless, and Sandy in Grease. Well, here is a fun tween makeover video where we used WallPops to totally revamp a 12 year old girls room from cluttered cute to positively posh! We kept the entire project under $100 dollars with some DIY magic!
WallPops are perfect for room makeovers! Not only do WallPops come in the most on-trend designs imaginable, they make a sassy statement for a very nice price, and they are super easy to use and then remove to make way for changing tastes!
We used the Go Wild zebra print blox to create a dramatic feature wall. Animal print has an adventurous and chic appeal that just never seems to go out of style! To compliment this impressive wall art, we painted her current bureau black and added some modern pulls. Changing her furniture from princess white with antique drawer handles to sleek black with contemporary hardware helped to transition the room from sweet little girl to stylish young woman. The black paint ($8.97 for a pint) and 8 new drawer handles (only $1.38 each!) were a low budget way to make a dazzling transformation. The finishing touch was an Icicles Chandelier for $30.99. This shimmering chandelier was the bling cherry on our delicious make over. Cascading tiers of silver hanging from the ceiling gives a glamorous, finished look to the room.
Who doesn’t love to be festive?! After all, the holidays are the mecca of festivities, giving the warm lively spirit to the word itself.

Sure you can buy a box of cookies, but isn’t it more fun to make them yourself? This time of year, we all have an extra twinkle of inspiration! Here are a few visuals of holiday ideas we tried this year!
In this photo, we traced and cut out an iconic Menorah shape that you “light” each day with peel and stick flames. It is a DIY advent Menorah! Fantastic and symbolic for kids, they will love to add a flame each night. We used the WallPops Ice Blox to give our Menorah a shimmer shine!

Trace and cut pumpkin shapes with our Totally Orange Dots or Blox, then cut geometric shapes out of Black Jack for the face of the pumpkin.

When seasons change, we feel more than just a change in the weather. There is an awareness and an excitement that comes with each season. Fall is a beautiful time of year, the time of harvest and the time for nature to put on a brilliant show of color. Celebrate the Fall and all of her bountiful hues by giving your decor an Autumn make-over. This fun project is a wonderful way to bring those colors into your home.
1. Gather leaves in different shapes and sizes.
2. Trace them on the back of WallPops Blox in autumn colors like Lello Yello, Blackberry, Red Hot and Totally Orange.
3. Cut out the leaf shapes, and include the stem.
4. After you have your leaf shape cut out, peel it off of the backing and stick it to the wall.
Add as many or as few leaves as you wish, in as many colors as you would like for the desired effect. This decor idea looks great from early September all of the way through Thanksgiving.
Enjoy this video for a quick demonstration on how to get this look at home.
