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:

If you're heading away this weekend I hope you get to stay in a guest room like this one overlooking the water and completely secluded from the main house. So serene and relaxing. #projectgeorgianbay It only took me two years to finally decide what fabric to use for romans blinds in my kitchen. It was worth the wait! This @ferrickmason fabric from @memo_showroom is everything I hoped it would be. Fabulous fabricating by @tonicliving as always! I'm loving how my late Grandmothers chair is fitting into this corner of my family room now that she's been revived by @restylestudioto Not only is it adding extra seating but also a home for my new favourite @tonicliving pillow!! #crazypillowlady Three cheers for sunny, slow, relaxing Sunday mornings. ☕️☀️
