Journey to a new Desk

No, Really.  I’m posting this.  Like, a year late.  #SorryNotSorry Once Upon a time I shared that we were going to upgrade our desk space.  Lets look at where we were then: Not a terrible space at all really.  But… not as functional as it could be.  And most certainly not very pretty.  Here were… Continue reading Journey to a new Desk

Visual Closet Sollution

So, we’re slim on posts for 2014.  And we’re nearly out of days in 2014.  OOPS. Point being, it’s likely not too hard to scan back to our post about 2014 Resolutions. You’ll note #3 on the list of goals for our home for this year… Create a balance between workspace and dressing space.  I’m… Continue reading Visual Closet Sollution

Home Show-Offs ~ Inexpensive Art

About a month ago Pittsburgh hosted the annual home show.  Ordinarily, as we aren’t technically home-owners (renters unite!) we usually skip it, but we managed to get our hands on some free tickets and figured, why not? We slip in late morning, and one of the first things we encounter is a lady with a… Continue reading Home Show-Offs ~ Inexpensive Art

Adding Pantry to the Closet

So we shared last week about how I spiffed up the hall closet to make it my own. Well, I forgot to share the right side of the closet, where yes, we still keep our pantry goods. Down there on the bottom we have a handy stool to make it easier to quickly get to… Continue reading Adding Pantry to the Closet

Creating an Organized, Cute Closet

So I left you the other day with my closet half-done with a fun chevron carpet on the floor and not much else. Not bad, but a fun floor covering does not a closet make. So I needed handy means of storing both random assortments of things as well as clothes and shoes. Of course… Continue reading Creating an Organized, Cute Closet

DIY Tree Branch Jewelry Hanger

So, now that I have a dresser to stow my clothes, I get to actually fill it with my things!  But what about ontop?  For things like jewelry and accessories?  Previously, I used command hooks straight on my mirror.  Which looked like crap.  Then I found a pair of tea cup hooks. They’re great!  Shiny… Continue reading DIY Tree Branch Jewelry Hanger

Dressers, the Anti-Nomadic Furniture

So, moving.  Long distances.  The biggest decision you have to make – do I bring it all?  With every move you’d be wise to downsize somewhat, but what about the big stuff?  Like furniture?  My goal when moving from DC to Pittsburgh was to do it all in the back of my compact SUV and… Continue reading Dressers, the Anti-Nomadic Furniture

A Little Bedroom Evolution

So today I was reading through one of my favorite blogs, Sew Woodsy, about their hysterical search for ticks, and the crash of their headboard.  (Seriously, stop over and give it a read.  Too funny!)  I sent them a link to our own headboard project to illustrate how we hung our headboard as ours is… Continue reading A Little Bedroom Evolution

It All Started with a Lamp ~ Or, the Bedroom Revamp!

Fortunately, Kermit approves of the changes. You… Continue reading It All Started with a Lamp ~ Or, the Bedroom Revamp!

Styled Containment of Dresser Clutter

For the longest time I have been on the hunt for one thing.  A tray. I know, I know, I have a ZILLION trays, what do I need another one for? I get it, I get it, there are a LOT of trays featured here.  But there’s a special one I’ve been on the hunt… Continue reading Styled Containment of Dresser Clutter

Some RASTafari Re-Organizing

If you’ve been following along, you’ll know we lovingly refer to our nightstand as RASTafari as it was built from an ikea hack using the RAST. Once we finished the outside, we just sorta tossed some things into it and left it alone.  I had always planned to line the drawers with some pretty paper… Continue reading Some RASTafari Re-Organizing
