Definitely not new to the home decor market, tile has been around for as long as we can remember. Always adorning bathroom and kitchen floors to showers, mudrooms and other high traffic areas, tile in the past was usually just seen as a smart solution rather than a decorative accent. However, with design trends constantly changing and evolving the different types of tile now at our fingertips is absolutely enormous! From patterns that mimic real wood to bright and colorful geometrics, the broad looks and finishes that tile can bring to any surface has expanded abundantly.

Find our most coveted tile interiors below, from backsplashes to floors, fireplaces and even sinks!

Rustic Inspired Stools

Weathered, Natural, Timeless…

IMG_4177

A trend we’ve loved lately is the rustic décor trend, where distressed wood and vintage details are mixed elegantly throughout your home for an area that’s not only natural but both warm and inviting. Looking for a way to incorporate this into our own space, we decided to refresh some wooden stools to give them a worn finish that had a fresh, beachy chic vibe.

IMG_4187

One of our favorite Fablon designs; we were excited to finally use the Scrapwood Peel and Stick Liner! A beautifully weathered print, this sticky back plastic was able to give the stools an antique look that was both rustic and timeless.

We first covered the tops of the stools, removing any excess film with a craft knife as we went. After the tops, we continued to install the sticky back plastic on each of the four sides, making eight sides total between the two stools.

So easy, this simple décor upgrade changed the look of the adjoining bar top, bringing a cottage inspired look to our kitchen with a beautiful organic air.

Step 1: Measure the height and width of each individual shelf

Step 2: Cut out each liner to your shelf’s dimensions (adding ½” or so to your overall dimensions in case of any mistakes)

Step 3: Install each liner while paying special attention to air bubbles (a credit card or smoothing tool will help to erase any that occur!)

Step 4: Remove any excess material with a craft knife

Not just for bookshelves, sticky back plastic can be used to refresh the look of an array of different surfaces such as coffee tables, dressers, cabinets, night stands and more. Take a more modern approach with a contemporary design or stay basic with a solid color, either way you have a beautiful new piece of furniture to enjoy.

A Vintage Laptop Cover

Give Your Computer a Designer Upgrade!

IMG_4262

Use your laptop as an accessory by covering it in your favorite Fablon print! This easy craft idea helps you transform the plain exterior of your computer by giving it a beautiful designer upgrade. Choose between animal prints and patchworks, pretty stencil designs and lovely damasks.

IMG_4254

The only tools you need are your laptop, the sticky back plastic of your choice and a craft knife! We suggest first positioning the liner the way you would like it to appear on your computer. Some designs like the Scrapbook liner we used for this project have varying patterns throughout, so we placed it to display certain details we liked such as the quote “Look on the Bright Side of Life”.

Once you’ve properly applied your sticky back plastic, the next step is to carefully trace the outline of your laptop with a craft knife. Pay special attention to the round corners, as it is easy to slip and make a mistake. Once you’ve finished the front of your computer, flip it around to install the back.

IMG_4269

We chose two different designs because we liked the vintage look of pairing two complimentary patterns together; however one roll of sticky back plastic can easily cover both the front and back!

IMG_4244

Feeling like your coffee table might need a makeover? We sure did and so we put Fablon’s sticky back plastic to the test to design our perfect tabletop with a little bit of sass and a whole lot of style! Without spending a fortune, we were able to refresh this drab black table into a fashionable room statement, all within an hours’ time. For tables both big and small, create your own sleek interior with this brilliant decorating project.

Note: This project will differ slightly depending on the size of your table and if you decide to do just the tabletop or include the sides as well.

Project Tools:

2 Rolls of Ariel Brown Peel & Stick Liner

Craft Knife

Step 1: Position your sticky back plastic the way you would like it to appear on your table, once you’ve finalized the positioning, remove the backing and smooth into place. Watch for air bubbles and either eliminate them with a smoothing tool or credit card.

Step 2: Once your liner has been applied, take your craft knife and run it along the edges of your table to get rid of any excess material.

Step 3:  For this project, we had 6 different sides we needed to cover. We applied the sticky back plastic over each section and smoothed into place. Once the liner had been applied, we simply ran our craft knife along the edges of each square to make sure the sticky back plastic was identical in shape.

Easy Decorating: Chic and Stylish Vases

Make a Glistening Statement with these Refurbished Vases!

IMG_3804

Today’s project is all about reusing what you already have in your home, for nothings quite more satisfying then taking something old and making it new again! Take a look around and ask yourself, is there anything in my home that I haven’t used in a while? Once you’ve identified those key items, determine which items are completely useless and which, with some work, may actually make a beautiful décor statement.

We decided on some old vases that were lacking any color and design. Using three of Fablon’s Premium Special Effects Liners, we were able to give them not only a new look but also bring a stylish touch to our existing décor.

The soft iridescent glow of the sticky back plastic added a touch of luxury that brought high-fashion detail to these once plain vases. Whether for flowers, greens, kitchen storage, or just for decoration, this simple decorating project was not only easy but helped us re-purpose those once forgotten items in our home.

IMG_3748

Creating your own work of art doesn’t mean that you have to be an artist or a painter; you can create something beautiful no matter your expertise! In the do-it-yourself era, it’s now more common to make it yourself then it is to actually buy it.

IMG_3726

Today we tackle the project of creating our own modern wall décor using Fablon’s Barcelona Window Film. By taking an old picture frame and simply adding a touch of design and color, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had an instant masterpiece on our hands that looked beautiful enough to sell!

Project Tools:

Barcelona Self-Adhesive Window Film

Craft Knife/Scissors

Empty Frame

Marker for tracing

Step 1: Measure the width and height of your frame (for this project we measured the height and width of the 9 individual panels)

Step 2: Using your measurements, trace an outline of your frame on the backside of your film (we traced one panel outline and then used that to trace the remaining 8 panels)

IMG_3740

IMG_3744

Step 3: Once you’ve cut out your outline, make sure your frame has been cleaned and then remove the film’s backing and smooth into place

Step 4: Remove any excess material using a craft knife (make sure to pay attention to the design and colors of the film, we used different parts of the design to make sure our final picture blended together seamlessly)

Beautiful Frosted Snowflakes

IMG_3780

In addition to their stylish selection of peel and stick sticky back plastic, Fablon also carries an array of easy to use window films that bring beauty to ordinary glass surfaces and décor. With winter upon us and the cold setting in, we thought that by adding a little decoration to our plain windows we might abate the winter blues for just a bit longer!

Choosing the elegantly frosted static cling design, we set to work to create our own winter wonderland…

Project Tools:

Frost Window Static Cling

Craft Knife/Scissors

Marker for tracing

Step 1: Taking your window film, trace as many snowflake designs as you would like on the “non-cling” side of your film

Step 2: With either a craft knife or scissors, carefully cut out each snowflake avoiding leaving any marker residue behind

Step 3: Clean your window(s) so that they are free of all dust and debris

IMG_3775

Step 4: Remove the clear backing from each snowflake

Step 5: With a damp cloth, wipe the area where you are going to place your snowflake and smooth into place
