INSIDE JOB: Furniture's Interior Surfaces Need Some PANYL Lovin', Too.
Growing up, we were taught an important lesson about looking past outside appearance for the real personality that exists within. This sentiment was captured in various adages and phrases, including "don't judge a book by its cover" and "it's what's on the inside that counts."
That lesson stuck with us and became part of the inspiration for a new, exciting way to use of PANYL: Interior surfaces.
Whether it's a drawer, door or unit with which...
Mirror, Mirror, on the MALM: PANYL a Reflective Dresser in Myriad Ways
For a moment in time, IKEA offered a mirrored MALM dresser. That moment, however, is difficult to pin down. Google searches lead to all types of dead purchase links and aggregated blog post round-ups which hint at and occasionally picture the elusive, reflective dresser, but it's all a tease: You can't really find the durn thing anymore.WE nabbed one a while back without knowing we'd need it. It was just too outlandish to pass...
Molly's MALM: Before & After Pics Display the Patchwork Power of PANYL
If you're on our email list (if you're not, join to get free samples!), you probably saw our call for customer photographs earlier this year. A big part of our mission is to showcase as many PANYL projects as possible. After all, we are what you make.
This week, we got an ambitious submission from one Molly Greenberg. Molly's MALM was a gorgeous act of 'imitation is the highest form of flattery.' She explains:...
Double-Tap Discount. Insta-Savings.
Socializing. It's how we share with and are inspired by the people we love.
PANYL long ago dove headfirst into Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook, discovering amazing new friends, blogs and brands along the way. But we recently realized we were missing out on some serious social inspiration: Instagram. So, we joined up (@PANYLpics), got to posting and now we just can't put this thing down.
Through May, we're...
Fort What It's Worth: Texas Blogger Pumps Up PANYL
The best compliments are the ones you don't see coming. And this morning we stumbled on a post full of 'em.
Fort Worth blogger Mid2Mod (Dana to those who frequent her site), discovered PANYL through a giveaway we did with Dans Le Townhouse a while back. And she took all of the benefits of PANYL to heart…even though she hasn't tried us out yet!
She wants endless choices, ease of use, and...
Patterns Give Your EXPEDIT New Life!
When IKEA revealed that it was retiring EXPEDIT, the world's most ubiquitous bookcase, the design community erupted into a blog post frenzy. What would we do without the icon of affordable storage?
We'd innovate, that's what. At PANYL, we had already prepared for the EXPEDocalypse, rolling out patterned finishes for the killer Swedish cubbies. With our dots, diagonals, chevrons and must-see Moroccans to choose from, the life of your...
Wood-Trimmed Changing Table Hack with Room on the Walls
Over on Dress This Nest, Yvonne is getting all rustic with her EXPEDIT changing table hack.
It's a lovely, straightforward solution to the recently discontinued, plain white storage unit. Check out her basic instructions (which she calls a "copycat" from Young House Love):
1. I don’t have a Kreg jig, so instead of joining the wood panels, I just nailed them all individually to the bookcase.
2. I used the pre-stain wood...
Painting Your Furniture is a Good Way to Give a Room New Life. But So is PANYLing It.
A recent Apartment Therapy post features some of the better painted furniture upgrades the Internet has to offer. The brightly colored pieces are great solutions for situations where walls cannot be altered. Instead of living in color purgatory, the folks taking these design steps have boosted their quarters by changing what they can.
So we took a look at three of the featured images and found alternatives from the PANYL store so that, if...
