Now that the weather is cooler, I can finish some projects I started over 6 months ago. I pretty much lost all of my drive during the summer and its’ sweltering heat. It’s really not much fun to sweat buckets while attempting to work on some projects in the garage. Although I am enjoying a… Continue reading Fall/Winter Projects
Finally! It only took several months, but I finally finished the vanity project. Perhaps finished is a little misleading, though. You may notice in the picture the sides where the mirror comes down are a bit knicked. This was because after everything was painted, there wasn’t enough room for the mirror to come down, so… Continue reading The Vanity is Complete
Last weekend John and I went to Savannah, GA to celebrate my 25th birthday, and this weekend we did a lot of “housework” … yet our bedroom is still a downright mess. The biggest accomplishment was in our office… which is still nowhere near “done.” We have done what we can just re-using what we… Continue reading Hacking our desk, old new bookshelf & vanity stool
Because you all are waiting with bated breath (well, maybe not), I introduce to you the vanity, completely painted, however not currently assembled, including the fabric I chose to line the drawers. In my last post, I was agonizing over what decorative paper/wrapping paper I was going to use.
I have spent some time now searching for the PERFECT gift wrap to use for lining the drawers of my Vanity. I’m torn between different designs/styles/colors/etc. I think this is why I tend to just go with boring things, because I can never make my mind up on something. I suppose the good thing about… Continue reading Oh, the choices…
So, I have been semi-casually looking for a Vanity for my room. I happened upon this beauty on craigslist and decided to take it home. However, it was in a desperate need of paint. I was originally going to repaint it white, but I thought, you know, my room is already boring enough with a… Continue reading Vanity Progress
Ok, so I can’t take all of the credit for this one. I saw this post, and immediately loved the side tables. I knew I had to make them mine! We bought two of these, and the second one is still sitting in the garage waiting for me to finish it. I will get to… Continue reading Home Projects: Nightstands
Our second year anniversary is coming up on the 22nd of this month. For those of you who do not know, this year is cotton, so John and I are planning to get some new bed linens for our room. Which is great, because we really need it. Right now we are using some old… Continue reading Bedroom Bliss?
Last week we purchased a pool table on clearance, which has been my husband’s dream ever since we started talking about moving into a house. We weren’t planning on purchasing one so soon, though. It just so happened that he went to the Sports Authority to figure out which table he wanted to save up… Continue reading Odds & Ends
After being cooped up in our apartment for so long, we’ve neglected to make many purchases just to defer until we finally have a house, mostly because we just lacked the space. One such purchase included new dishes. Before we moved, John and I went to Homegoods and found some nice, white dishes for a… Continue reading And, it starts… Plates
