DIY Herringbone Dresser

We recently decided to mount our TV on our fireplace, and while Jesse works on that situation, I decided to have a little fun with the thrift store dresser that we've been using as our media console for the past two years.

Using just a little bit of paint and some painter's tape, I created my own little version of a herringbone dresser.

Entryway Makeover & A Giveaway!

We still have so much work left to do on our house, but sometimes it just isn't feasible to tackle a big project yet. In the meantime, I try to focus on the little things that I can change, and work towards the big picture. 

This weekend, we made a few small changes in our entryway, and I'm so happy with our little mini makeover!

My 10 Thrift Store Shopping Tips: How To Decorate on a Budget

10 Thrift Store Shopping Tips: How To Decorate On A Budget! Great ideas for creating a stylish home on a small budget.

By now, most of you reading my blog know that I love thrift stores.
My thrifting began out of necessity, but over the course of the past few years, it's truly become something I do for fun. I realize I'm kinda weird, and I'm cool with that.

Thrifting is basically a beautiful synergy of my two favorite things: decorating and treasure hunting.

DIY Mod Podge Hangers

Before today, I had never decoupaged anything in my life. I bought a small thing of Mod Podge last December, but pretty much just stared at it longingly for the past 8 months, waiting for it to speak to me and tell me what to do. Because I had no idea.

And then I did my $50 closet makeover and my little jar of Mod Podge spoke up and said 'Pssst. Hey girl. It's time.'

The $50 Closet Makeover

Have you ever predicted that a project will take you an hour and be a total walk in the park?

And then 3 weeks later you emerge from the cubicle-size space that has eaten you alive, covered in dust and sweat, and maybe even find a rogue meatball stuck to your sock?


This is the story of our closet makeover.
