For Canadian #DIY blogstress Barbara of hodge:podge it is week four of the Six-Week One Room Challenge presented by Linda at My Crafty Home Life. While the burdens of being a teacher during report card season have limited her participation a bit, it seems a new wave of inspiration has arrived in the form of our PANYL samples! Included were new, as-yet-unavailable chevron, quatrefoil and stripe patterns. According to Barbara,
I am excited to have been asked by Panyl to be one of the first to try out a pattern from their line. I want a bright graphic backdrop on the back of my bookcase. I am leaning towards the emerald green or slate, in stripes. If I chose to go with the black and white graphic rug from Ikea, stripes will go well. If I find a plain jute rug then I will go with chevron.
The vintage Coke bottle tray which Barbara plans to upcycle for her project is getting a lot of love in the comments section of her post and intrigue is bubbling around the PANYL samples as well. Vintage pieces combining with the most nouveau of affordable design solutions? We call that a win-win.
Best of luck to Barbara down the home stretch. Check back for how she decided to implement PANYL.
