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. Now, when I'm tired of color, I can flip these around and go back to my usual boring neutral self.

DIY Mid-Century Boomerang Coffee Table

Ever since we moved into our new home, I've been itching to find another great coffee table for our living room. I absolutely love our reclaimed wood coffee table that we currently have, but I wanted to switch things up a bit and try something new.  After doing a lot of online shopping I found that everything was either a bit more than I was willing to spend or not quite the right shape or size for our space. So, we came up with our very own design, a mid-century modern-inspired boomerang table!

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.
