How To Turn A Dresser Into A Beautiful Built In

One of my most recent projects was the kid’s room, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  It all started with an old dresser I was thinking of selling but then had a vision, then had tunnel vision, and then there was no turning back.  It took some time, but was easier than I thought.  And while this may not be the best way to do it, it was the easiest and cheapest option I could find.  When I wanted to do this, I had no idea how, and I thought I’d share the steps I took for those of you looking to do something similar.

How To Color Block A Wall In 4 Easy Steps

4 Steps To Creating A Beautiful Gallery Wall

It’s no secret I love a good gallery wall.  In fact in my last apartment, I had so many of them that I probably needed an intervention.  I think they bring so much charm to a space, and there are so many different ways to do one.  Whether its a perfect grid family photo wall, or a floor to ceiling display, a gallery wall can bring so much character to your space.  And for an art lover like me, it’s a great way to showcase all my fun finds.

Hate Cords But Love Lamps? Modern Lantern’s Got You Covered.

I don’t know about you, but there are two things that truly frustrate me when it comes to traditional lamps:  First, I hate how ugly cords look.  They drive me crazy, and I will go to great lengths to hide as much of them as I can.  Second, I’m always restricted where I can place lamps because of where my outlets are.  The same goes for beautiful sconces–There are so many places I’d love to have them on my walls, but unfortunately, I don’t have the ability to hard wire all my walls. Well, that’s where Modern Lantern comes in–Their lamps run on a chargeable battery. I recently purchased the Bella Bronze Cordless Lamp, and I couldn’t be more impressed.

I’m alive!!!  It’s been a minute since my last post, but I’ve been busy buying a home, moving in, and now I’m currently waking up 4 out of 7 nights a week in a panic because I can’t decide on a paint color or what rug size would fit best in whatever room I’m currently obsessing over.   Totally normal, right?  And if you’re not following me on Instagram already, you can check out our new home and follow along as I make it our own.

20 Ways To Add Character To Your Home

We’ve been looking for homes for about two months now, and I swear if I say “I’m just looking for something with character” one more time, my husband may leave me for Karen, the girl who thinks HGTV is a medication and is totally OK with a popcorn ceiling (**gasp**).  Continue reading “20 Ways To Add Character To Your Home”
