This little breakfast nook was fine. It was functional. But the point of today's makeover feature is to show the power of scale, and how, when used correctly, it can elevate a space to a new level. So click through to check out the updated breakfast nook and to read more on my thoughts about choosing the right size furniture.
Currently I'm living in a two bedroom apartment with my fiancé, one large dog, and one cat. It's not a spacious place by any means, but I think it's just the right size for the four of us. The only time our pad feels too small is right about now: half way through the winter. It's the middle of January, and cabin fever is starting to set in. To offset the restlessness of being indoors, I'm freshening up the joint with a simple, quick room spray.
As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned to love burning candles at home. I now enjoy buying seasonal scents in pretty containers, and I’ve learned to love making my own candles. With industrial-style accents becoming increasingly popular, I made a set of concrete soy candles with beautiful wood wicks using rose, one of my favorite scents.
I don't know about you, but storage is one thing that I can never get enough of. Especially cute storage. So today I'm sharing a project with you that I made to create some mobile storage for my home office. It's a stacking, rolling storage cart that can hold all of those odds and ends that you just don't know what to do with.
Add them to your shelf, or wrap them up as a holiday gift. Either way, they'll bring some serious style to any bookshelf.
I’m a pillow hoarder. If you find me scouring the pillow section, get me out of there! Nonetheless, I still manage to bring home new pillows and this time I updated a plain pillowcase from IKEA to create this fun DIY geometric gold glitter pillow with random triangle patterns.
Happy New Year! What better way to kickstart 2017 than focusing ahead on positive and encouraging words that anyone can live by?

So instead, I'm focusing on new ways of looking at the day to day.
These ten quotes will be sure to start any day on the right foot and remind you to just smile and enjoy this new year, one day at a time. Best part is, you can download these free printables to place anywhere you need some extra motivation.
Sometimes wall art just needs to be fun. To celebrate the little moments, I made this DIY graphic confetti art with the saying “Make Life a Party” and it’s sitting on my desk as a reminder to see the positive side of things. It’s really easy to make, and I’ll even share how to make your own confetti if you want something specific.
Greenery, the 2017 PANTONE color of the year, has had a polarizing effect so far. Some people love it, others hate it.

This living room had good bones, but it wasn't living up to its potential. With mismatched furniture and no real style, it left something to be desired. But just wait until you see the space after the makeover!

Even though holiday decorations are fun to shop for, the prices can add up quickly! Rather than purchase a sign or banner this year, I decided to make a simple accordion banner out of paper to display on my shelf for the Christmas season. Not only is it simple, but it’s very inexpensive to make and folds up for easy storage if you want to reuse it next year.
My love for donuts has infiltrated Christmas this year! My bare Christmas tree was in need of a new skirt, so I went ahead and made a DIY donut tree skirt out of felt, complete with colorful sprinkles. The best part...no sewing needed!
