I MAY have mentioned once, twice, a thousand times how much I adore Danika over at Gorgeous Shiny Things.  She was my first blog follower who I didn't know personally, and I still don't know how she finds all the little bloglets at the beginning and follows them as they become full fledged blogs.  She shared one of her past homes as my first guest flashback Friday post.  She posted the girl's room and the botanicals I made based on their curtains (which reminds me: things are changing up there: stay tuned).  She even set me up with a "Stylish blogger" award.  As if that wasn't enough, she has been an endless resource when it comes to the design biz, both on and off line.

This multi-talented lady has been very busy developing an awesome new product.  The idea started when she created this fretwork for the front of a client's ikea cabinets.

Can you even believe the transformation?

Well, Danika teamed up with Cheryle of the Whole Nine Yards, and the two of them created a line of fretwork panels that you can buy online and add to furniture that needs a little lift.  Here are some of my favorite applications, from their website:

Super fun, right?

Go on over and check them out here, and tell Danika I sent you!

What would you dream up for one of these bad boys?  I always love to hear your DIY ideas.


  1. Dare I hope for more patterns? I'll bet I could make a fab divider for over "that thing" in my doorway with these, but none of the patterns are mid-century enough.

    What a freaking awesome idea, and reasonably priced, too!

  2. OMG these are fantastic! I've always loved the fretwork partitions from mid-century homes (kinda like the bookcase example above). I'm totally going to check this out!!

  3. Those are really gorgeous transformations ♥

  4. Thank you Heather!!! What an awesome surprise to see this!

Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
