Occasionally, I'll see a kid's backyard playhouse and think about how it would make a cool office, but it's rare. So, when I saw the after version of this basic playhouse, I had to a double take to make sure it wasn't an actual house. Want to see how it turned out?
If I have the choice between placing a plant on a shelf or suspending that plant in the air, I'm going to suspend it. Save the precious shelf room! This beaded plant hanger is a cool and unique way to get those plants in the air! Continue Reading
Tonyia's sixteen year old son had stylistically outgrown his bedroom. The ubiquitous collections of trophies and posters populated the space before. After, the room is all grown up and unrecognizable! New millwork, includingContinue Reading
I'm all for utilizing your wall space. This really rings true if you live in a smaller space and don't have room for a lot of furniture. If you don't have room for a nightstand on the floor, hang one from the wall!
Aziz LIGHT! Instructabler, The Antagonizer (who've I've made sound like a superhero and rightly so) constructed The Fifth Element elemental stones out of blocks of wood to fashion candle holders much to the delight of fellow Leeloo lovers everywhere, me included.

I love those cute and quirky vintage pieces that are truly unique, but sadly no longer serve a purpose that they once did. Take for example this darling sewing basket that was given to me. I couldn't say no, it had way too much potential - but I don't sew and I had no actual use for it. So, I decided to turn this sewing basket into a 4-legged llama planter. Yes, llama planter. Just bare with me for a minute!

If you follow us on Instagram (and you should!), you're privy to the hints we've been dropping about our new Curbly Headquarters in Minneapolis (the word 'headquarters' sounds so commanding; I'm sticking with it).

Whenever my husband and I are entertaining outside (which is a lot!), we like to have games to keep our guests having a good time. There are the classics like frisbee and football, but how fun are these game ideas? The giant Jenga? I'm sure that's a crowd-pleaser!
I inherited a love for art from my grandmother. Her home was seriously a museum that I loved to peruse and take in. It was full of beautiful decor and art; some she brought into Canada with her after she immigrated from Holland. Some, she picked up along the way. I always thought she spent a fortune on most of her collections. But it turns out, they were affordable prints that simply spoke to her, which she collected over time. And that is exactly how I seem to collect the many pieces of art in our home. The problem is, I'm running out of frames to hang them in, so I decided to create a minimal and modern magnetic poster frame!
