Living Room RevealThe time has finally come to give you a glimpse inside my new living room! This has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result. I find myself walking into the room to make sure it’s real. And it is! And I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Living Room RevealI was able to put so much more of myself into this room and I think it makes a world of difference in the overall feeling. With the help of a lovely wallpaper, a few new pieces of furniture, and our new Wood Shutters in Off White from Blinds.com, it looks like a different house! Take a look at all the changes we’ve made!

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

DIY Rattan Sunburst Mirror

Sunburst mirrors are definitely having a moment and I’m all about it. You’ve probably seen them popping up around the design world, I’ve got one in my kitchen! I happen to love rattan–furniture, accessories, you name it! There are lots of beautiful rattan mirrors out on the market right now, including lots of vintage beauties! They can cost a pretty penny though so we decided to make this DIY Rattan Sunburst mirror for only $25! And that will allow you to make 2-3 mirrors! It’s much easier than you’d think and the end result is so stunning, no one would ever guess you made it.

So let’s make some mirrors!

Details of my new Kitchen

Details of my New Kitchen

The story of my kitchen is a lesson in stubbornness. We are renters and really had no intention of staying here for 5 years, but alas, the longer we live here, the more I approach the space as a challenge to see how rad I can make it. Don’t tell me it can’t be done, because I will set out to prove you wrong! Ha! Well, last week I revealed our kitchen makeover and you guys were just as shocked as me to see the transformation. Our dreary little basement apartment kitchen went from 80s fabulous to timeless and refreshing with mostly small aesthetic changes and switching out some key components.

Today I’ll be taking you through the transformation process and telling you exactly what we did that provided the most impact including notes on the products, tips on how to work with the installers, and my ratings. I’m a big believer in reading reviews so here are my thoughts! It really is in the details, folks! Read on →

DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers

DIY Paper Tube ChandeliersAs soon as I laid eyes on the ‘Cocktail Lights’ of Hanna Anonen I fell in love immediately. The colors and playful shapes were so stunning. I needed to make a DIY version. These DIY Paper Tube Chandeliers are a fun way to bring color into a space. I love the impact a lovely chandelier can have on a room. These chandeliers are a fun alternative to basic desk lamps and don’t require any side tables! You can customize the color palette to whatever you desire, limited only by the paper variety at your nearest craft store. Paper, embroidery hoops, and twine are all you need for this DIY. You can easily install a hanging light bulb in the center of the tubes. On the other hand, they’re perfect without the light to serve purely as decor!

Small Space: Kitchen Renovation

Blinds.com

This kitchen renovation has been a long time coming. We have a very small kitchen with pretty poor lighting. It always seemed a little sad and drab. A huge part of the problem was our metal, mini-blinds. Yes, like the ones in a college dorm room. They were very fragile, difficult to work with, and cheapened the whole space. Luckily, Blinds.com came to my rescue! Our new blinds elevate the space, keep a clean look, and a perfect for our small windows. You can bet I’ll be spending more time in the kitchen now.

Read on to see which Blinds.com product we used and get a discount code!
