How to Install Island Pendants

I know, I'm finally getting around to writing this tutorial when it was done months ago. Well sometimes that is just how life is.  And doing the actual project is the first step in blogging--and it's easy to just leave it at that and not complete the rest of the steps, editing photos and composing a post.  I know, my life is SO hard. You know how you hate your island pendants?  Well, maybe you don't but most likely you are living with ones … [Read more...]

Navy and Pink Guest Room Reveal

Is it weird to get excited about a room?  Well I am weird and I get excited about rooms.  And houses.  And yards.  But this room---I am so excited about this room.  It's the big reveal day!

Fall Mantle

September is fall, right?  Sometimes it's hard to remember when the temperatures are still hot and the trees seem to be taking their sweet time changing colors.  Well I brought it indoors! The entire summer I was feeling kind of BLAH about projects and decorating...I was super burned out.  I knew that I needed to get back into it--to help fuel some blog posts, yes, and also just to get my creative mojo going again.  I wanted to decorate but … [Read more...]

Want an expensive looking side console table without paying the big bucks?  Creating knock offs from companies like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware is not always that tricky or complicated.  I sometimes see these knockoffs that are totally impressive but I'm like "Yeah....I'm never going to make that."  But this knockoff table really is SUPER easy to do and anyone can do this.  I did the whole thing in an afternoon. Isn't it cool?  I … [Read more...]
