DIY :: bistro awning

Ok, it's Thursday which means the week is almost done [phew] and you have enough time to pick up the necessary ingredients for a little DIY project this weekend.

Nick Olsen for Domino


Got nothing better to do this rainy Spring weekend?  Channel your inner Nick Olsen with this incredibly chic way of delineating a task specific area in a room or small space. [ by the way, he covered that Lantern with grass cloth himself. Another DIY idea for your bad-ass crafting self ]

Found over on MADE is this great, step-by-step tutorial for crafting a 'Bistro Awning' with a few detail tweaks of your own.




You could do, as Olsen did,  a more 'tented' feel by adding the Greek Key element and maybe a complimentary liner [ he rocked a pale blue in his ] this would be a, seemingly easy way to make a big difference in a room or studio space.
