Where ART thou? (Gallery Wall and Striped Chair Sneak Peek)

Posted on by Milla Posted in art, Breeze | 10 Comments

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 …

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 …

Side Table: Vintage Suitcase Edition (Inspiration)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Decor Inspiration, Inspiration, Vintage | 10 Comments

Happy Friday everyone! It’s inspiration time! Inspiration time means Kah and I find some inspiring photos for our next DIY project and you all give us feedback. What is our next project you ask? Because of course we’re always doing something right. It’s a sad unfortunate obsession. We should seek help. Anyway our next project in the works is a suitcase side table. Kah purchased a vintage suitcase several months ago and it’s literally collecting dust as the saying goes. …

The Adventures of the 85 lb, 6 FT Sideboard

Posted on by Milla Posted in Furniture, Thrift Shopping | 10 Comments

Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? I hope it wasn’t as busy as ours. We did a lot projects for other people over the past few days. Three hair makeovers. This went well although I feel carpal tunnel may be in our future. We attempted to hang a drape in the most shallow wall ever. Fail. Lastly, we pinned thousands of feathers to a corset in an attempt to replicate a peacock. I hope my cousin wins her Halloween costume …

Sneak Peek: Girls Bedroom and a Missing Car

Posted on by Milla Posted in Client Projects | 6 Comments

We’ve been talking so much about this girl’s bedroom that we’ve been working on and we’re still not finished…Grrr! It’s not our fault though. There were a few setbacks, like a vent above the window that didn’t allow us to install the anchors to hang the drapes. Why must apartments do this? It has happened in at least one other room we’ve designed. It’s like that at the last minute the contractors realized that they put the air duct above the …

Double Take: Before and After Stenciled Dresser

Posted on by Milla Posted in Before & After Projects, DIY, Painting Projects | 54 Comments

Hello all, thanks for stopping by as always. So I’m doing this post because Kah “kindly” pointed out that my name has been missing from the last few posts. The change in seasons and temperature affected me more than I thought I would. One day it was 80 degrees the next day it was 50 degrees and raining so I kept getting sick. My body and immune system was confused! Anyway as some of you may know we’ve been working …

Get a little Green with your Navy and Pink

Posted on by Milla Posted in Color Palette Inspiration, Inspiration, Mood Boards | Leave a comment

Today, we bring you a color inspiration mood board inspired by a pair of underwear. Not a pillow or a t-shirt…underwear. We spotted them during a shopping trip and though we didn’t purchase the underwear, we were really inspired by the color scheme. So now you don’t have to rely just on magazines and Pinterest for decor inspiration because fashionable panties are at your disposal. As Kah says, they’re not just for covering your cheeks. Anyway, the color inspiration here …

Twinterest Tuesday: A Weekly Pinterest Round-up (9-27-11)

Posted on by Milla Posted in Inspiration, Pinterest | 2 Comments

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…

Moodboard Monday: Four Days Sooner…Milla’s bedroom

Posted on by Milla Posted in Inspiration, Mood Boards | Leave a comment

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. Back to my bedroom…it’s been a challenge to complete my room as well as this mood board. See, I’m really picky about the accessories that will be a main focus in my room. Right now, I have all white bedding, with white lamps, a white dresser …
