  • The Act of Taming Toys

    For months now, I’ve been in the process of turning our girl’s shared bedroom (the one that used to be our’s)┬áinto a functional space for sleeping, playing, and storing everything in between. After painting the room but before hanging the black-out curtains, I installed this wall full of shelves. I used Rubbermaid shelving tracks and […]

  • Replacing Ikea Hardware

    I’ve been keeping an eye out for a new bed frame for my son for quite some time. He previously had a bunk bed mattress – from his previous bunk bed – on a metal bed frame. When it came time for an upgrade to a proper mattress, we landed on this foam mattress. That […]

    I have a thing for lamps, which is sort of like my thing for chairs; I’m always looking out for vintage lamps at thrift stores. After a few months of no such luck and needing (or wanting?) a lamp, I decided to make one. After all, I already had experience in rewiring one. I set […]

You see, I’ve been searching for a chair to replace this antique store find ever since Eliana mistook the wicker as a pull-toy. I had been looking […]

  • Shelves, Please!

    I’ve been on an organizing frenzy lately, which I cannot blame on pregnancy hormones this time around. Storage and organization can be challenging when living in a 700 square-foot home. My usual remedy to an organizing kick is to clean out our three closets and kitchen cabinets, but less things have been turning up in […]

    Buddy's Favorite Things Swap

    There’s this thing called “Favorite Things Swap” that I discovered through Instagram; it is basically like secret santa, but not for Christmas gift-swapping. You receive a name and send said person a box full of goodies while at the same time, someone else sends you a box full of goodies. Sounds like a win-win, right?! […]

  • Hello, Bathroom Shelves!

    Going into the Style Cure, I knew I wanted to replace the standard metal shelf in our bathroom with thick floating shelves. I also knew what wood I wanted to use for those shelves, which was a thick piece from a pile of scrap wood I bought at an estate sale. In order to achieve […]
