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.

love the yard stick!

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!
