Before and After: Antique Vanity

It’s been a blast from the past for me this week. This antique vanity used to be in my room as a kid, and once I moved out on my own, it went into storage. Well, it’s time has come to join the world again and get the attention it deserves! Of course, it needed […]

Before and After: Patio chairs come inside…

Every once in a while, a steal of a deal disappoints. Such is the case with a $99, 3 piece patio set, we purchased a couple summers ago. The table is still standing, but as you can see, the chairs have not quite held up. They had an imitation wicker effect, but in reality, it […]

DIY Purse Organizer

Ever wonder how to make your own DIY Purse Organizer? If you’re like me, maybe you have a purse or two of the slouchy variety? You know, that bag that seemed so casual, and fun in the store — and then you get it home, start using it, and realize that it is a deep […]

Yes, it’s a classic, and more importantly, easy… but we all need a little challenge now and then right? I wasn’t sure what I was doing, but was confident I […]

Pillow Talk – Part 1

It’s Spring time. Time to freshen up your surroundings. I thought I’d start with a few new pillows here and there… but what happens when you have a plan, but can’t find the fabric you need? How about create your own? I started with finding a pattern I liked, and then recreating it in Illustrator. […]

Before & After: Master Bedroom

We all know its the most neglected room in the house right? Yep, been there, done that. Enough already! Time to get this show on the road! So we painted it originally with this goldish-green colour. Great colour. But there was no plan and the room ended up being this mish-mash of colours, & objects […]
