It’s no secret that I think nailhead trim adds a little decorative oomph anywhere you place it, and this modern side table is no exception. It looks rather glam, doesn’t it? Would you guess that this was a clever IKEA Hackers project? Because I sure wouldn’t!

Erin Corcoran took two Lack tables, assembled them to match the form she wanted (with a solid base), and then added the nailhead strips. Total cost? $32! Visit IKEA Hackers to see more photos, and find out how to create this jaw-dropping look without dropping a lot of loot.

    A little oomph? I think nailhead hardware adds a lot, decorative class that accentuates, like a womens face with makeup! The outline features stand out.

  7. I saw the PBS documentary about the Elizabeth Arden/Helena Rubinstein rivalry, The Powder and the Glory. It was very good but they did not focus on the fragrances at all, only the cosmetics. Curious, I looked up their scents online and wow, there were dozens of them released during the years when both women were still alive! Most are gone now, but of course you can still buy the great Arden classic Blue Grass, and Rubinstein’s Heaven Sent was iconic in its day as well. I really wish that Arden would come out with something memorable again.Elliott handbag collection for Kate Spade New York

  9. Extremely disappointing! A bunch of us walked in on a Sunday night a little before 9:00 and the kitchen refused to service us despite their published closing time was 9:00. I guess they don’t need. more >Extremely disappointing! A bunch of us walked in on a Sunday night a little before 9:00 and the kitchen refused to service us despite their published closing time was 9:00. I guess they don’t need the business and don’t care about the customers who travelled all the way from Sarasota just to have the “717 Experience”. Won’t be coming back. Give it a miss until the customer is more important then the kitchen staff punching out on time.I need a fast acting and reliable solution

  10. Elys茅e, minist猫res, assembl茅es, ambassades, pr茅fectures et autres administrations abritent des uvres d’art et du mobilier d’茅poque. 307 000 objets pr锚t茅s par l’Etat 脿 l’Etat pour orner l’int茅rieur de ses b芒timents officiels. La Cour des comptes rapporte la “disparition” pour l’ann茅e 2012 dans les r茅sidences pr茅sidentielles, de 32 uvres (d茅pos茅es par les mus茅es nationaux) et de 625 meubles (du Mobilier national). L’horloge Boulle au Ch芒teau de Maisons Laffite, le dessin de Dufy au mus茅e de Marseille, le Miro 脿 l’ambassade de France 脿 Washington ? La R茅publique du sculpteur Alexis Andr茅 ? Disparus ! Parmi les minist猫res o霉 ces 茅tranges disparitions ont eu lieu, on note les minist猫res 茅conomiques et financiers, o霉 408 uvres sur 1128 ont disparu, soit 36,2 %. Mieux encore : au minist猫re de l’Education nationale, 39 % des tr茅sors se sont volatilis茅s, et au minist猫re de la D茅fense, 41,9 %. Certains objets ne sont pas vraiment vol茅s mais vont agr茅menter la maison d’un ancien ministre et seront r茅cup茅r茅s 茅ventuellement quelques ann茅es plus tard, s’ils le sont Il n’existe en fait pas d’inventaire complet, ce qui autorise toutes les fantaisies. A l’Elys茅e, il n’y a pas d’茅tat des lieux. Les chiens de Sarkozy, qui ont croqu茅 quelques accoudoirs et piss茅 sur le canap茅 d’茅poque ne seront ainsi pas poursuivis
