Loving Overlays

When shopping for a client, I always try to suggest ways to work with what you've got and bring life back into older pieces. When one of my recent clients mentioned she had an IKEA dresser, I immediately thought of the innovative product Overlays to spruce up this piece and make it look chic and custom. If you haven't heard, let me tell you all about this genious idea! Cheryle Rhuda and Danika Herrick created this innovative product when they saw a gap in the market for easy and inexpensive ways to dress up furniture. Overlays are lighweight, paintable fretwork panels that can be applied to not only furniture, but mirrors, bookshelves and anything you can imagine! What I love about it, is that they are also specially made to fit IKEA furniture! When you visit the 'IKEA to Overlays' section of their blog, they show you what fretwork panels work best with each IKEA furniture piece. Here are some amazing after shots of projects using Overlays...








There are so many creative ways to use this! Even if you don't live near an IKEA, you can transform so many furniture pieces and accessories. You can check out their blog and see more amazing transformations HERE.

Stunning! Loving the texture it brings to all of those pieces! The door is very cool! It makes me look at my doors and think they are a bit boring!!!

Pretty! I have never used overlays, but I can see where they might be just the thing to add a little interest to a room or piece of furniture. I really like the ones on the door.

Hi Amber. I'm attending the bloggers meetup on Thursday so I'm perusing the various sites.

Great photos!

Very nice! I especially like the blue one, as it just seems to make everything pop nicely. I've never heard of overlays either but they seem like a good idea.
