As a child, did you ever wonder what happened to a balloon when you let it fly into the sky? Did it wander into outer space? Or did curious birds pop it before it got very far? Well here's one answer to tell the little rugrats in your life when they ask that very question - it becomes furniture!At least these balloons do. Five hundred deflated balloons in a variety of colors cover this cool table and make it a delightful addition to any bedroom. The Balloona side table isn't cheap, but with good reason ... each balloon is tied together over wood to create this fun piece of furniture. We love looking at it and remembering the joy we felt in our younger years. Balloons can brighten any day and with this table, they certainly brighten ours!

I love bold accents in a room, whether it be a single wall painted a bright color, contrasting crown molding or ornate wallpaper. Unfortunately, my status as a renter makes bold paint colors and wallpaper but a pipe-dream. Sure, I've come across the paint friendly landlord, however, I tend to tread softly in the homes I live in. I lean my framed posters against the wall rather than hang them, because, when I move out, puttying up holes in the wall is that last thing I want to deal with. When I discovered the amazing wallpaper that Anthropologie carries I almost re-thought my whole renter philosophy. But a quick cost analysis of covering a wall in my non-permanent residence quickly put the kibosh on that idea.However, I couldn't get the amazing prints out of my head. So, what's a crafty girl to do? Why, figure out another way to utilize some amazing rolls of printed paper, of course:*Frame 'em: Funky vintage frames can be found at every yard sale and flea market across the country. Don't let ugly colors fool you, a quick sand and fresh coat of paint are all these bad boys need to house your favorite wallpaper print. Buy a couple different sizes, and layer them in a room as a statement piece.*Book 'em: Old hardcover books are another favorite of yard sales and flea markets. Purchase books in varying heights and widths. Cover them in wallpaper (you still remember how to do this from highschool, right?) and stack on shelves and bookcases, mixed together with your favorite family photos and tchotchkes.*Line 'em: Dresser drawers, desk drawers, kitchen drawers... anywhere a nice print will be appreciated.These are just a few of the ideas I have come up with, what are your DIY ideas for wallpaper?Where to Buy: AnthrolopologiePrice: $148Who: Zuzubean added 'Anthropologie Wallpaper' to the Hive.
