Entryway : Artwork

Now that the entryway is beginning to have a definite vibe, I was ready to pick out artwork. That was the easy the part, figuring out how to hang it has been way more challenging. I feel like I've gone on and on about how stumped I have been about this space, and I'm gonna keep going on about it, but the entryway as a space, is not conducive to any sort of cohesive design. This space has paralyzed me for six years -- like I pretended the entryway didn't exist, and that no one ever could see READ MORE

Entryway : Coat Hooks

Hey budz. The entryway progress continues slowly but surely! Our house has a lot of good things going for it, but one of the things it doesn't have is a coat closet. Instead it has this really large (in proportion to our house) entryway that doesn't serve a whole lot of purpose. It basically consists of our stair case, a weird wall cut in half diagonally by the stairs, a bay of piano windows, and a bench seat that covers a radiator. These reasons are why it has taken me six years to come up READ MORE

New Chair Don’t Care

Friends! We decided to celebrate the basements first birthday by giving it a new side chair -- just what every one year old basement wants! Honestly, it didn't go down like that. It was my intention to have a mid-century orange swivel chair reupholstered in a dark blue (that was about a year ago). However, doing something like that takes initiative and action, and it was obvious that we (I) were not showing one sign of follow through. Clicking internet buttons is just way easier. So, it was READ MORE

Entryway : DIY Copper Plant Stand

Hey Guys! Hope all is well with yas. I've been doing a little webhost rearranging over here, and haven't had access to the site for the last few days. I'd appreciate it if you could please let me know (in the comments) if you notice any weird hiccups with the site. Thanks in advance on that one :) Okay fools, so I've initiated phase two of my DIY craziness. Believe it or not, I'm not a big fan of DIY when it comes to home decor. I should rephrase that, I like it when it's done well, which READ MORE

Entryway : DIY Round Leather Strap Mirror

Guys, Who am I? Two posts in one day? FTW! Like I said, I've been brimming with ideas for the house. The first was to customize this round mirror from Ikea. Unlike so many other mirrors the Skogsvåg mirror from Ikea was the perfect size for my small space. At 18" wide it fit this odd shape created by our staircase just perfectly. Plus the frame of the mirror is made from wood so it makes it easy to modify, unlike some of it's metal framed counterparts. Also, did I mention the price, READ MORE
