Posted on by Kahli Posted in Color Palette Inspiration, DIY, Inspiration, Upholstery Projects | 7 Comments

Hello, lovely people! Hope everyone is having a great day today. I’m still battling with a cold, it’s been going on for almost two weeks now and just when I start to feel better…I wake up with the symptoms again. Somehow, I’ve found the strength to complete most of the chair. I only have to upholster the back! Yay! I actually stayed up til 5am to work on it because I couldn’t sleep. Surprisingly, I made it into work today. …

Hello lovely people! How was your Thanksgiving week? Hope you all ate lots of food. If you had to cook, hopefully there were no mishaps. As for as our Thanksgiving week it went well. We spent time with family members and scored great Black Friday deals on clothes. Of course, the buy one, get one free deals are our favorite. Yet, we didn’t have a chance to complete any DIY projects or visit any thrift stores because we were sick …

Revisiting the Floral Chair Disaster

Posted on by Kahli Posted in fabric, Furniture, Inspiration | 5 Comments

Not too long ago, I made a post about an ugly floral chair I planned to reupholster in a charcoal gray fabric. Well fast forward to the present and I have yet to find a charcoal gray fabric that I like. It was either too light, too dark, lightweight, or void of texture. I was looking for a medium weight linen look fabric, but since that didn’t work out for me I have to come up with a plan B. …

Sneak Peek: Girl’s Bedroom

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Client Projects | 5 Comments

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We spent most of Saturday finishing up the girl’s bedroom. We still have a few things we need to add though. The sun is going down so fast lately, by 5:30 it is already dark outside! Here are a few of the decent pictures we could get. As you can see all the picture frames need to be filled with pictures. I really despise night-time pictures but these didn’t come out …

Happy Friday everyone! I’m so ready for the weekend. This week just flew by in a blink! For the past few days we’ve been working on a gallery wall for a super long wall in our living room. If you read the title of this post you would know that the wall is about 12 feet long. There is a “mantle” attached to the wall as well that is probably over 9 feet.  Here’s a picture: This picture doesn’t even …

Good morning all you lovely people, I promised to share the completion of the under $100 gray sideboard about a whole week ago! Wow how time flies! I finally got around to polishing the other hardware with Rub N Buff in Gold, which I purchased from Michael’s. That stuff is great! We had a really busy weekend with three hair makeovers and of course Sunday football. Great ending to a busy weekend with a Baltimore Ravens win! Here’s the before …

Double Take: White Mid-Century Desk and Yellow Chair (Before & After)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Before & After Projects, DIY, Painting Projects | 48 Comments

Yesterday Kah showcased a sneak peak of a desk we scored off of Craigslist for $10. Yes $10! I’ve paid more for useless items which is why we’re so excited. The lovely couple just wanted to get rid of it so they sold it for as less as possible. God Bless them! You guys have no idea how long we’ve been looking for a desk for the lonely corner in our living room. There were a few things that were …

When your day doesn’t go as planned…(Makeover Sneak Peaks)

You all are probably wondering why it has been three days since we’ve updated the blog. We’ve had a hell of a last few days that took up a lot of time. Friday, the morning began with our car not starting. The battery was shot because I left the interior light on or so I thought. Milla’s boss came to pick her up for work because she loves her or because she would die without her at work. I called …
