Hello! I know it’s been forever since you’ve seen either one of us around these parts, but I do have a makeover to share with you all today. The good news is that we haven’t just been sitting on our butts all month, we’ve actually been very busy! Other than enjoying our summer with trips to amusement parks, we have been working on our bedrooms and other projects. In the next few weeks we should have a huge upholstery project to share. However, today I’m sharing a chair that resides in my bedroom.
You may remember this chair from a few months ago that I purchased for $50 and I primed it right away, while I decided on a color and fabric.
After hitting the jackpot on a yellow garden stool at the new grand opening of HomeGoods in Baltimore (Towson) MD, I decided to go with a bright sunny yellow and here is the new look.
Isn’t it pretty? I really love anything yellow these days. It’s such a happy color and it looks great paired with white linen which I scored at 50% off a yard at Joann’s huge fabric sale last week. Read more
It’s been a long long time since you guys have seen me around these parts and an even longer time since my sister Milla has visited! But here I am to do what I do best, which is write posts about items in Milla’s room haha. At least the current post I’m writing is connected to her in someway. You see this nightstand used to be in my room.
But as you know my room has changed quite a bit since last year and my nightstands now live in Milla’s bedroom and with a new look!
The color is a custom color matched from a fabric swatch and it’s beautiful. The two of us hand painted the pair of nightstands a few weeks ago after days of debating on cobalt blue or turquoise. Blue won out. I love it in the new bold color over the subtle gray!
Hello lovelies! Sorry we took the week off. Our family reunion took place over the weekend, which we had to move inside because it rained all day long. However, we didn’t allow the weather to stop us from having fun! After the fun was over I fit in some time for shopping. I can always make time to shop!
First up, is a beautiful brass lamp I bought from the Goodwill for a mere $10. I originally had a different brass lamp (pictured above), but it came as a pair and I was advised by Milla to move it back to the dining room. So that left me lamp-less for a few hours until I found this beauty!
It’s a nice a heavy brass lamp, I especially love the raised leaf design. Here’s a closeup. And that beauty to the left is my new gold round mirror. I’m only showing a sneak peek because the room isn’t quite ready for full viewing. I bought the mirror from Marshalls for $39.99, aren’t the intertwined circles amazing!
Hello all! I introduce you to the second post in one week! I’m getting better, right? Sooner or later I’ll be back to at least 4 posts a week (I hope). Today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite bohemian style bedrooms. While I was searching for inspiration to finish up my bedroom, I kept leaning toward the boho chic variety. And I’m now convinced that is the style I prefer, at least in my bedroom. Boho bedrooms are typically very carefree and eclectic and that describes me perfectly.
First up, is this bedroom by Naomi Stein from Design Manifest. If you haven’t seen this bedroom before you have been living under a rock for some time now. In fact, Naomi’s entire home is AMAZING, every room could fit into the theme of this post. She does a great job of mixing modern with vintage and making it bohemian glam. If I can get my paws on a batik dyed bedspread like this I would be ecstatic. And that Marilyn Monroe print is divine. You can purchase it here . I think I may consider buying it. I’ve always wanted a Ms. Monroe print in my home.
This bedroom was designed by Sara Berrenson from All the Pretties. This bedroom is about the same size as mine and I love everything about it especially that headboard and quilt at the foot of bed! I found the bedroom on Pinterest and it lead me to her house tour. Be sure to check it out and the rest of the blog, she has some great stuff on there. She even has a great fabric line on Spoonflower.
Hello! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July last week. We didn’t do anything special for the holiday, but I do have something special to share with you today. We have been working on our upholstered beds for a few weeks, completing a little at a time. I still have a few things left to do with the bed, but most of the headboard is done. Here’s a quick peek.
I rushed over to the Goodwill this morning to buy a stack of books and teacups to decorate the desk. I actually wanted ceramic bowls instead of teacups, but I couldn’t find any. Hopefully, on my way home I can find some at another location. I may need to replace them anyway, if Breeze is a bad boy while we are away and knocks them over.
The gray headboard is upholstered in white twill tape and nickel upholstery nailheads. Putting the nailheads on took longer than I expected! It took us most of Saturday to finish up the entire headboard! I’m happy to say that I still have my fingers, although the headboard did get dropped on my ankle, but the swelling has now subsided! I’ve always been very prone to accidents. Read more
I had plans to get this post up last Wednesday, but things didn’t go as planned. I suffered from a severe eye allergic reaction for most of Wednesday. That was the first time that ever happened to me! My eyes were so swollen that I looked like I just went 10 rounds in a boxing match. I looked like this.
My face is all better now though. Anyway to the point of this post. I purchased this desk about 3 months ago for $50 and for those 3 months I debated on whether to leave it black, paint it white or a color. Last week I decided to paint it a color.
I painted it teal, Lagoon by Rustoleum to be correct. I just love that color to death and I figured that side of the room needed some color against the white wall.
Isn’t it pretty? With the matching teal mirror. Speaking of the mirror it used to be on another wall in my room, but I decided I’d rather use it as vanity/desk. Read more
I know you’ve been wondering where in the world we have been for the past month. We’ve been missing more than we’ve been present lately, especially Milla! But that’s what twins are for. There is always one around to pick up the slack. Speaking of slack, we haven’t been just sitting on our behinds. I finally have a makeover to share with you all. Remember this chair? That looked like this recently, but originally looked like that thing to the right?
I did love the stripes a lot. I mean I really did, but apparently my cat Breeze didn’t love it as much because he used it as a scratching post and an easier way to get into my window. And by that time I didn’t even want stripes anymore on the chair. So now for the new look.
I can’t believe that as long as we’ve had this site, I’ve never done a small bedroom roundup. As I stated before the size of my bedroom is 9′x10′. While it is small I’m attempting to make it work for me. So today’s post will feature small bedrooms that work.
This bedroom is what I will call very tiny. In fact, I’m sure that there is a person out there with a closet this size, the amount of natural light makes this room. I especially love the chandelier and wall shelving.
I’ve always loved this tiny but stylish bedroom. The mix of patterns work together so well. The textiles are by Rubie Green and I really love that headboard, but the fabric is not in my price range at all! Read more
I immediately cleaned the mirror free of dust and removed the glass from the frame so I wouldn’t have to tape it off. A quick coat of primer and then a coat of leftover teal spray paint “Lagoon” by Rustoleum late and I love it! The birds are singing! Read more
I haven’t been to the thrift stores in a few weeks when I usually stop in a three times a week. I guess it was my way of trying to save money and I was sick of thrift stores because all of the shopping we did for our birthday party. I went to the Goodwill on Thursday intending to buy a brass lamp for my bedroom and it is probably a good thing that I didn’t find one since I have too many lamps in the house to begin with. While I didn’t find the lamp I was looking for, I did find this hideous mirror.
…and yes I did buy it! I think even Breeze was perplexed with all the details on it. When I showed it to Milla, her first question was: “Kah, is that fruit?” Sigh, yes Milla it is and pine cones. My intention is to spray paint it a lovely shade of teal. Spray paint can cover all evils. The mirror only set me back $12 so it won’t be a complete waste if I don’t like it.
I have a feeling I’ll love it though. When I convinced myself to purchase it, this is what I envisioned. Can you spot the fruit?
