I’m not sure why we called this a “string” project, because it turns out we all used yarn! Oh well, that saves string and twine for another day.

Have you guys seen people that do string art on trees?

What an easy and fun way to add color to something boring – challenge accepted! Here’s a standard IKEA changing table (the SINGLAR) that was in desperate need of some sprucing up. I moved it out of my daughter’s room (let’s face it, she’s 2 1/2 now – it’s time to go!) and into my bedroom for a little makeover.

At Hobby Lobby, I bought this fantastic colored yarn in a bright, bold multicolor pattern. I also bought WAY too much, just a sidenote. Using a glue gun, I glued the start of the yarn at the base of where I wanted to start…..and began wrapping! This was a fun and calming project which brightened up a table (and still allowed me to watch Game of Thrones in the background!) After wrapping two legs, I decided this was good to go. It’ll look great in a nursery with dark grey walls because now it has a chance to really stand out!

I’m still debating about the back two legs, but I think they might get yarned before this project is considered complete….
And why, do you ask, do I bother brightening up a changing table? Because……we’re having a baby! After many many outtakes, we finally got some good photos for our announcement – what do you think? The only question is which shoes will get to be on this table? Girl’s or boy’s???

Ok, back to stringing things – I think it would be awesome to use this idea on dresser knobs, chairs with spindle backs, chair legs, or barstools. Another cheap and easy way to make something much more glamours (a la my clipboards)

So take a look around – what needs some yarning in your house? Let’s see some of your ideas!
