New Feature: Reader DIY

One of my favorite things is getting emails from my lovely readers with photos of their projects! I think it would be fun to feature one or two of these projects each week.

First up is a beautiful entry way decorated by Kristen Dowd in Dallas, TX. Kristen saw my post about using pierced screens here and wanted to share her own creative idea. She found two pierced screens at a junk shop and is using one screen for a headboard (photos to come!) and the second screen she used to layer behind a mirror in her entry. Isn’t this a great look? AND THAT CHAIR!!!

Kristen runs her own interior decorating business called Gypsy Soul Interiors. You can contact her here. She also has a shop at The White Elephant in Dallas’ downtown Design District.

Do you have a project that you’d like to have featured on LGN? Please email your submission to

  1. I CANNOT believe this! Kristen is an old, dear friend from high school– I recognized this the second the top inch of the screen came up in the picture! I tried to get those screens shipped to ME– freight charges were too much, but oh, I love how it looks!

  2. I absolutely adore seeing pictures of different "regular peoples" homes!! Just to see what people create who are not professional interior designers. Beautiful entryway! I can't wait to see more in the future!
