There has been a yardstick trend going for a few years now. I must admit, I love the warmth & texture a grouping of them bring, & the subject matter will always play a role in my profession. I also think that every space can use a little old thrown in to add another layer to your design. Here are a few chic yardstick installs that definitely measure up.
I believe that anything (well almost anything) grouped in mass instantly makes it more powerful & modern. This simple install makes a big statement.

Ok… technically not a real yardstick, but you get the idea. This piece adds a touch of humor to this sophisticated space, which can also be crazy useful if you’ve got little ones running around.
Stair Risers are generally overlooked, but they are a great opportunity to add impact to the right space.
While out a few weeks ago, we too jumped on the yardstick trend. We needed a stool for the littles. It was time. We figured a stool would be safer than the giant metal mixing bowls she was pulling out & flipping over to stand on (smart move though, right?) I spotted this little charm infused beauty while at Hobby Lobby… & you know it was on sale.
Being completely honest, I did run over the top & sides with a fine grit sandpaper as there were a few rough patches. Beyond that, no customization, no makeover, just a great little find for $12!
