Girls Bedroom Inspiration Roundup

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Inspiration, Kids Room Inspiration | 3 Comments

For the past month or so, we have been working on a girl’s bedroom. A few of the pieces that we intend to put in the room have already been featured on the blog: All of these items are still currently sitting in random corners of our apartment. We would like to have every piece of furniture completed before we physically start decorating the room. That way after we paint the bedroom, it’ll be more of an installing and tweaking …

It is Twinterest Tuesday. I’m not really happy about it. Pinterest wasn’t friendly to us. In fact, it was rather slow and we had to sift through a lot to find some great things. Sorry this list is shorter than usual, but nevertheless, here it is: Like this: Like Loading…

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Before & After Projects, DIY, fabric, Painting Projects, Tutorials | 28 Comments

Happy Monday everyone! It feels like it has been days since we’ve updated and it doesn’t help that the weekend just flew by! The weather hasn’t been best in Baltimore for most of the week, but yesterday the rain held up and allowed us to fit a few projects into our busy weekend! Why were we so busy? We attended two birthday parties for our younger cousin and “godtwins” (easier than saying twin godchildren-even though I just said it!). And …

As the title suggests, this should be a Moodboard Monday post, however I was anxious to finish this mood board for my bedroom. So just pretend that today is Monday and not Thursday night.

Double Take: Pink Floral French Side Chair Before & After

A year ago I bought this chair from an estate sale for $20. It was one of many chairs in my chair addiction collection. If it was cute, I’d buy it! Plain and simple. And this chair was cute! I loved the curvy legs and back. I did not love the existing look however. Fast forward to the present and this chair has finally received the much deserved makeover. Like this: Like Loading…

How to: Make Double-Welt Cording

Posted on by Kahli Posted in DIY, Sewing, Tutorials | 6 Comments

For the past two days I have been working on reupholstering a seat for a french style side chair. The previous chair had some basic trim to cover the staples and frayed edges, but I thought using welting /cording /piping (whatever you want to call it) would give it a more professional appearance. I wanted to use double-welt cording though….and I’ve never had the pleasure of sewing double-welt cording until today. This is where I had to get fancy with …

Double Take: Turquoise Chalkboard Mirror Before & After

When Wednesday better known as hump day comes around, I start to get antsy if we haven’t completed some type of DIY project for the week. So in order to cure my anxiety I’d usually choose one of the numerous thrift items laying around and give it a makeover. Some may call it an addiction to decorating…yes it is an addiction. The item of the week is this ornate mirror purchased off of Craigslist. I love the 3 sections and …
