My Rustic Glam Christmas Tour – Part 1

Welcome to part 1 of my rustic glam Christmas tour, ya'll. Pour yourself some whiskey or wine, crank up the Frank Sinatra holiday music and get comfy. If you are coming here from Lehman Lane, I am so glad to have you here. In an effort to spare you such a lengthy post, I have broken up my tour into different parts (hence the "Part 1" of this title)...I got carried away with the photos. Let's start with the heart…

Double Pantry Barn Door DIY – Under $90

I am so happy to finally share with you my barn door DIY for replacing boring bi-fold doors . Built for my pantry, I would have loved a true barn door on a sliding track, but the space did not allow enough room for this. So,  I had to build two narrow doors. If you have been following me, you know that when I say "I built",  I really mean (in most cases) that  I nagged my husband into building something. This…

No Sew Ikea Ritva Curtain Hack

Brace yourselves for this Ikea Curtain Hack tutorial. It's quite intimidating. It requires a hot glue gun, grey grosgrain ribbon and a pair of Ikea Ritva Curtains. See the attempt at sarcastic humor? This is actually one of the easiest diy projects ever. I ordered 2 pairs (1 pair for each window) of white, Ikea Ritva curtains online. I wanted to spruce them up a bit and make them pop. Inspired from some of the curtains at Ballard's Designs and…

How to Paint Upholstered Furniture

I have still not taken an interest to the art of sewing and upholstering. Given my love for DIY home decor and interior design, I know I should but it seems a bit tedious to me. Anyhow, I had been holding on to an Eastlake Chair that has been in my family for years.

Simple, Neutral Fall Decor

    Without a doubt, fall is my favorite time of year. Living in the south, summers are so oppressive that I welcome the change of  seasons. I love the crisp air, the smell of pumpkin pie, the colorful leaves, Halloween and football of course. Usually, I go overboard trying to create fall vibes throughout the entire house, but this year I only added a few fall accents. Being 16 weeks pregnant with a toddler to chase after, I am…
