Tania picked up this funky 1960's lamp at Goodwill for $2.99. Her original intention was giving it a makeover and then selling it. Only the first part happened. The second part didn't because she fell in love with it and decided to keep it for herself. As far as the brown and orange color combo...you may love itContinue Reading
Raise your hand if you own a succulent or two. Or seven. I have a budding (pun intended!) succulent garden and have been in need of a way to put them on display without sacrificing precious and limited counter space. This simple DIY ladder is the perfect way to hang as many or as few as you like! Not to mention its cool throwback to the 90's!

We have a lot of thrift store finds in our home - how about you? Firstly because we can't walk away from a good deal when we see one! And secondly, I just love a simple challenge to see what I can do to breath new life into an old and neglected piece. Take for example this hot pink stool I found for $3! I actually didn't mind the color too much, but what I really loved about it was how solid it was and the fact that you don't see a lot of stools with only 3 legs. So, I had to have it! I decided to convert it to a small side table for our daughters room, but she can still use it as a stool if need be. Continue Reading

I love changing my decor, I'm not talking about replacing all the furniture, just switching up the accessories. Usually my home decor stays more on the neutral side of things. But, this summer, I'm wanting more and more color in my life and home. I may have commitment issues though, so I made this cute reversible 'HI" shelf sign.

And I almost gathered the courage to get rid of it until a light bulb went on in my head. This guy didn't need to get ditched, it just needed a makeover. So, I decided to go all out and have a little fun.
