big ben, big impact

it’s chinese new year and i’m home with family. i just had a 8-course reunion dinner. woo! will be taking the day off tomorrow as it’s a busy, busy day – visiting grandpa, uncles, aunties and friends – and stuffing my face again. i should be back on fri with more hacks.

till then, say hello to the year of the rat and gong xi fa cai (have a prosperous new year) to all my chinese friends and readers.


kara tipped me on this gorgeous ikea cabinet [via] swampdragon decoupaged big ben onto an ikea kitchen wall cabinet, the akurum/faktum, and it’s instant elegance for plain old white cabinet.


the big ben motif is a poster from sparkling wine, mumm.

not ikea, but do check out her laurel and hardy cabinet too.
