Vintage Mid-Century Modern Desk

Okay okay, you caught me! It's actually a sewing table, but who uses those anymore?

Me. The answer is me. Not that I really sew... lol

My last vintage sewing table had a completely different look. I revamped that baby before I even knew what mid-century modern was. What I did to that piece semi makes me cringe now! I digress...

Refinised Classic Mid-Century Modern Dresser

I'm obsessed with MCM furniture lately! The clean lines, the classic style. Versatile enough to go boho, eclectic, transitional, almost anything!

I've always lived in a home with carpets installed. So, until now, I haven't had the pleasure of the never ending quest for the perfect area rugs. However, the 7 rugs I've had in the 5 months of living here are a different story.

This story is about how to make whatever area rug you choose....better, more kid friendly. Times a thousand. More plush, more stationary, you name it! It's like a magic trick for area rugs!

Don't Touch My MCM Hutch!

I e-stalked this hutch for a few weeks.

At $100 my first instinct was BUY BUY BUY! But that's usually my first instinct when it comes to furniture! However, I decided it would be too large for my dining room. So, I scrolled on.

It was reposted and appeared at the top of the facebook marketplace. Listed for $75. It dawned on me that it'd make an awesome bookcase! It was no longer forced into a life of servitude in the dining room! IT'S A SIGN! So, I convinced my ex to drive an hour & a half to pick it up. I ended up paying $65 for the piece and gave him $5 in gas.

Living Room Tour

As promised, I'll be posting a room by room of the new place as it becomes semi presentable! This room is a far cry from finished, but it's coming along!

Living Room Grey Couch

The grey couch is originally from Macy's, but I scored it used for $450. Yes that's a lot (for me), but it was literally exactly the one I wanted in new condition!

DIY Kid's Handprint & Footprint LOVE Art! Valentine's Day Craft!

I'm very last minute getting this posted. I am not a planner. Let me explain. I made this art a few days ago, just because it was a cute idea and I wanted something on display of my girls sweet prints. Then last night, it dawns on me that today is Valentine's Day and this would be a great V Day post!

My favorite things about this project are that it's great for year round (which was my original plan!), and you can choose any colors to match your home decor! Win, win!
