Let's Shop!

Happy Saturday my lovely losers! It may be yucky outside, but thatís the perfect opportunity to do some online shopping with Snappy ? As usual, I've got some fun items to buy, our weekly concept design and a neat D.I.Y. project for you to try out. Grab a cup of coffee, cuddle up to your pooches and felines, whip out your wallets and let's shop!




First up, letís talk about tooth brushing. After you clean your choppers, do you cup your hands to get water to your mouth for the rinsing process? Or do you spend money on dixie cups? Stop that!!! Take a look at the Tapi. Just put the Tapi on the end of your bathroom faucet (no tools needed!) and squeeze it to turn your faucet into a water fountain. Made of water-safe rubber, the Tapi can change your faucet into a fountain, but wonít change the taste of your water. Itís available in bubblegum pink, canary yellow, fire truck red, granny smith green, igloo white, lavender, marine blue and pumpkin orange.
$5.95

Our next item serves no real purpose, but it sure is neat! Itís a wire ferris wheel for tabletops. A little pricey, imo, for non-functional dťcor, but itís still cute ?
$88.00

Want a quick and easy way to dress up a wall in your home? Like the idea of a wood wall? Then you need Stikwod. Stikwood is thin pieces of wood strips with a 10 year rated adhesive on that back that you, well, stick to your wall. It comes in a variety to styles sure to compliment any dťcor. You can stick it horizontally, vertically, a chevron pattern, or any design you come up with. My favorite is the Reclaimed Barrel Oak. Which one do you like best?
Prices vary based on wood and the amount ordered.

Letís talk tubs. Bathtubs. I donít know about you, but Iím tired of seeing the standard tub options out there. Iím ready to class it up a bit. Meet the Flora Freestanding Hammered Copper Tub with Wrought Iron Stand. Sheís pricey, but sheís pretty. These tubs are produced by hand (possibly explaining the price!) and have an antique 16-gauge patina copper exterior and nickel-plated interior. The wrought iron stand has hand-painted rose accents. Like it?

Letís move on to our concept design for this week. Is it a piece of art? Or is it a chair to sit on? Itís both! The Transformer Chair by Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee gives you functional art that is a pretty neat way to store chairs when not in use. This one features the Mona Lisa. Would you use something like this?

Decoupage is no longer a bad word from the 80ís. Today, Iíve got a neat way to perk up a dresser using the poster of your choice and the decoupage method. Get yourself some Mod Podge, a paintbrush and a poster then get to work! For detailed instructions, go here:

i'm thinking you could make a chair like that...

find an old/cheap chair of that style, then decoupage a picture/poster to it. affix small but sturdy clips to the rear 'frame' portion of the chair that would keep it from unfolding while on the wall, use a dremel or similar tool to make an indentation in the back 'frame' for hanging on a nail on the wall. hang and whaaalaaaa! think it might work? could be a fun project.

oh, and if you want the fancy frame, you could get pieces of fancy molding, paint them whatever color you want, then glue them to the chair frame.
