How To Make Pillows With Glue (and A Living Room Sneak Peek)

I've been boycotting our living room since May 2012. If you ever saw this post, you know how many ridiculous mistakes I have made with this room, and they continued long after that post. Letmetellyouwhat.
So, it's been 1.5 years, and I've finally decided to work on this room again. I still have several big projects to finish, but I thought it might be fun to share a sneak peek and do some pillow-talking.

10 Thrift Store Furniture Makeovers


10 Thrift Store Furniture Makeovers! The story of what one blogger has learned after painting over 20 pieces of furniture. Successes, failures, and everything in between! This is a great read!
I'm not the best decorator, designer, or photographer, my socks have probably only matched twice in my life, and my cats are rather plump. I'm far from perfect, but one area I'm getting pretty good at is paint. Jesse has definitely witnessed several 'I JUST RUINED IT!!!!' mini-breakdowns after one of my furniture makeovers has gone awry, but my goal has always been progress over perfection.

How To Make A Bow In 5 Easy Steps

I love gift wrapping. I always have. Growing up, I remember asking my mom to let me wrap the gifts for every occasion. For me, it's fun to have an excuse to make something and be able to give it to someone I love. 

Plus, it's a great skill to have as a wife, as Jesse's method of gift wrap for family and friends usually involves a grocery bag. Although, I kinda think that's just as cute. :)

DIY Thrift Store Desk Makeover (Using Silver Leaf!)

You guys. I finally did something I've been wanting to do for years now. I silver leafed a piece of thrift store furniture! I'm absolutely smitten with the way it turned out, but I have to be honest. This table nearly ate me alive 14 times over the past 2 days. I still have silver flakes in my hair. But it was worth it.
