Etagere HACK!

You’ve no idea how excited I was to come across this blog post by Amy of Commona My House blog. Seriously, I squealed like a little baby and that’s saying something for me, I’m not someone who squeals lightly. But this, this deserved it.

You see, I have wanted an etagere in my master bedroom for ages. But the $4,000 Jonathan Adler version I covet, is not going to happen any time soon. There are just too many other priorities, like food and shelter. You get the idea.

Which is why this DIY idea is so fabulous. I LOVE making something from nothing and this seems like a pretty straightforward project and gives me the look I’m after at a price I can stomach. It’s a $90 shelving unit with $12 worth of spray paint to take it from this:

This is SO happening in my workshop this weekend! Will post pics of my finished product as soon as it’s complete!

Adding some finishing touches to the living room at #cmiprojectfairlawn and I’m swooning over this new @tonicliving floral fabric. Comes in navy too! Remember that fun orange headboard @restylestudioto was working on last week? Well she's done and installed and pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. FOR SALE: Brand new, custom drapery panels made with @caitlinwilsondesign English Garden fabric. Sometimes things just don't work out and these weren't right for a recent client project. They are stunning and would be terrific in a variety of spaces - girls bedroom, living room, etc. Each panel measures 48"W x 96.5"L but could be easily altered to suit your space. DM me if interested!! 📷@kmtorrey I love seeing my crazy ideas come to life! Thanks to the very talented Andrea @restylestudioto this headboard is going to be a stunner in my girls room! Some room sneak peaks in stories.  #Repost @restylestudioto (@get_repost)
