Two weeks ago we announced that Emily Henderson is coming to the Curbly House to make it beautiful. Just reading that last sentence makes me want to do a Shannon Miller floor routine circa 1992. The chance to work with Emily is amazing, and we feel like the luckiest home-owners on the block (I think we are)! You will not believe the cool things we have planned for the bedroom.

Painting furniture is an easy and affordable way to give it a quick makeover, but after decades of facelifts, sometimes you gotta get rid of the paint and start as freshly as possible. This mini-dresser has been mine for an eternity, but now it's time to pass along to my daughter Eleanor for her new adopted bedroom on the 3rd floor.

Today in the U.S. we are celebrating Independence Day, or as my English brother-in-law might say, the day 'We were freed of them."
