Attention all those who hate oak. Susan was commissioned to refinish this vintage chest. Its hardware had long been replaced and its keyhole covers were missing completely. Susan's client wanted the chest to look "timeless and neutral." Did that mean painting it white? Cream? Black?Continue Reading
Oh my goodness. If there was every a filing cabinet that I wanted in my home, it's this one. Far from boring (and on point for color!), this is one you have to see. Hint: take a look at that sketch in the bottom left of the photo!
This morning on Craigslist in my city, there are 489 listings for china cabinets and a whopping 1351 listings for hutches. Does that mean china cabinets and hutches have fallen out of favor? Not with these clever makeover artists! Take a look and then you tell us...have china cabinets and hutches fallen out of favor with you??
Serena spotted this impressive cabinet at her local thrift store for a measly $40. (Take thatContinue Reading
I love to add emphasis and a little drama to decor pieces that are otherwise mundane and a little boring. We all have clocks in our home, but I'm sure we buy them with functionality in mind, rather than style. I decided to create this Giant Modern Clock, because it not only serves a purpose (as clocks always do), but also it adds that great burst of color and a geometric touch to the space in a big and bold way!

Concrete counters. It's not a new idea to the internet, but it's always been one I've been partial to.

I love a good IKEA hack, and this one is a super simple and easy one! I've been looking for a fun 3-tier stand for a while to help organize our daily items a bit around here, but I could never find one that works for me. I guess I was just meant to make my own. Continue Reading
Everyone in your family deserves a stylish little place of their own. We love our cat, Pumpkin, but he isn't allowed on the sofa. I'm just not a fan of pet hair on everything. I wanted to give him his own special spot, without sacrificing style in our home. This easy-to-make pet bed cost only $10 in materials. Instead of buying expensive designer fabric, I created my own look with modern black and white splatter effect. I'll happily let it live in our living room and with its removable cover, I can easily wash it often to keep the air issues at bay.
We don't really need to forgive the varying light conditions in this living room's before and after images to fully appreciate its dramatic transformation. Whether its blinds are closed or open, it's apparent that the layering ofContinue Reading
