DIY Instant New Dresser…or Whatever

on
A reader brought this website to my attention and I’m so glad she did (thanks, Rachel!). I have a dresser in desperate need of an overall thanks to some “creative” painting and decoupaging by my then-teenage daughter. I just painted over it when it became my son’s, but now that son is in college and [...] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

on
Here’s a cool idea to kick off this week’s Top Three Thursdays on Etsy: a table designed to look like a fingerprint. Available in the Modern Project‘s shop, each table begins with a hand sketch. From there, Curtis Micklish uses a router to give each table its own unique stamp, just like fingerprints in real [...] [Read More]

The picture says it all here as far as I’m concerned. Just LOVE. THIS. I want it NOW. It’s available at Anthropologie online only for $1,598. Pricey I know but a girl can dream, right? [Read More]

Table This

Top Three Thursdays

While I usually try to post in the morning, clearly the day got away from me. Better late than never, I say, so without further delay, here is Top Three Thursday on Etsy. I’m kicking it off with something I find just strange but probably some of you out there will love. I’ll let the [...] [Read More]

Farmhouse Style

Holly Becker over at Decor8 (amazing home decor blog that you should immediately bookmark if you’re not a regular reader) wrote a fabulous post about farmhouse style. Check it out if you haven’t read it already. Holly also gave a shout out to Dreamy Whites in the column, and I just drooled when I clicked [...] [Read More]
