    Wood Shim Plant Stand

    by  • October 17, 2014 • 9 Comments

    Today I wanted to share with you how I made this textured wood shim plant stand! I started by building the base with 4 pieces of plywood assembled into a simple box shape. I used an inexpensive 1/4″ x 2 x 4 aspen plywood panel and had them cut it there at Lowe’s down...

    Modern Asian Nightstands

    by  • August 21, 2014 • 23 Comments

    I’ve had these old storage cubes for a long time now. They were actually floating nightstands from my childhood bedroom. My parents let me pick out those nightstands on a trip to IKEA when I was redoing my bedroom in middle school and I thought they were the coolest. Aww, my old room. So...

    Guest Room 1980′s Curtains

    GuestRoomCurtains

    The last time I mentioned the guest room, I said I was trying to decide between these two vintage fabrics for curtains. I couldn’t make a decision, and so I didn’t for awhile, probably because the room was still just a hot mess and I didn’t really have anything to plan the room around....

    Painted Steamer Trunk

    Hello again! Let’s skip past the awkward apology about another disappearance…okay? (Though I will say sorry to anyone who just got my draft post in their inbox, that’s super embarrassing. I think the “preview” button is a little too close to the “publish” button…whoops!) So anyways, I have this antique steamer trunk. It’s been...

    Mid-Century Global Dresser

    When I last showed you our bedroom I mentioned how badly we needed to get some dressers for this room. Overflowing suitcases in a closet is not exactly ideal! I was looking on craigslist but hadn’t found a good fit yet. Lucky for me, my parents said we could have on of their old...

    Dining/Living Room Progress & Plans

    The only time I’ve shown you our dining/living combo room was in the empty before tour - I love how bright and spacious this room is. The problem is that, with a separate family room, we don’t have enough furniture to fill this space yet! It’s still looking pretty sparse and not at all...

    Goodbye to Our First Home

    by  • March 27, 2014 • 14 Comments

    Yesterday we officially sold our first home! Yes, FINALLY. You might recall it was almost a year ago when we listed it for sale, and shortly after that our first contract fell through. Since then it hasn’t been active on the market the whole time, but we certainly weren’t expecting it to have played...

    Salmon & Chartreuse Bedroom

    When I showed you the duvet cover curtains I made for our master bedroom, it was looking like this - But I hinted that the room was changing quite a bit, and it has! I loved the chartreuse that was in the curtains, and I wanted to pair it with salmon/coral hues. They’ve always...

    I have so much I need to show you but I keep stalling because I don’t think anything is blog-worthy yet. I guess I should just get over my perfectionism for the sake of a post! Here I go. I’ve been working out putting together the guest bedroom. I’m still just excited that we...

    Duvet Cover Curtains

    by  • January 30, 2014 • 14 Comments

    I showed you our empty master bedroom in the “before” tour - It’s a good-sized room, and I love the hardwoods and the fact that there are three windows! Here’s how she was looking shortly after we moved in - We have a lot of furniture on our shopping list, considering that this house...

    Hand-Painted Wall Pattern

    by  • January 14, 2014 • 45 Comments

    I think it’s fun to experiment with bold colors or patterns in smaller spaces like hallways or powder rooms. It’s easier to get away with louder choices in these rooms that have less going on & less to compete with. I loved our deep charcoal gray hallway and it’s strong contrast against the crisp...
