new baby, new master

So my Aunt and Uncle on my boo's side have entrusted me with the awesome task of helping them revamp their master bedroom. It just so happens that they are expecting their second child in the fall, so what better way to mentally prepare than with a nice, relaxing bedroom as treat? Naturally, I was more than excited to be asked to flex my interior design muscle! After a short browsing trip to some local hotspots (Homegoods, Target, etc.) I was able to get a grasp of what Sheryl and Drexel wanted - well mostly what Sheryl wanted, but I wanted to keep in mind that this design had to be as gender neutral as possible. Here are some of the things that we found for inspiration.

Sheryl was immediately drawn to orange and turquoise.Of course they are absolutely delightful together - not to mention that they are complementary colors.

She loved the warmth and color combination of this piece...

And the texture of this piece.

She was also really diggin' this pillow. Cute, I know. So I we…

sew awesome

I've been searching high and low for a table to accommodate the new sewing machine that I got for Christmas. Truth be told, I haven't sewed a stitch on it because I was waiting to create the nice, little sewing nook that I had always envisioned of the corner of the sun room. Of course I could've just picked up something from work, but lately I've been craving something unique that I can truly make my own. Lo and behold while I was sifting through stuff at Goodwill, I came across a charming  flip top sewing table and a snazzy vintage chair.

Of course a pile of my crafting supplies were in the way, so I had to scoot them over to make room for my new find. Look! My sewing machine is finally out of the plastic! :) I got the table for $15.91 and the chair for $10.91, for a grand total of $28.70 with tax.

Besides an avacado mid century modern chair that I acquired from my grandmother (it's still chillin at my parent's house, but I have a nice place for it when it make…


Finally brought home the Ung drill frames. They're so ornate and cool.

They sat in the corner of the sunroom before I figured out what to do with them.

Finally I decided that the blank spots on either side of the living room could really use a boost. I'm not sure what I'm going to put in the frames yet - maybe some fabric or some doodles (P.S. Brandon and I LOVE to doodle).

Consider the wheels inside my head turning...

cheap chic - side tables

So I figured I would start a new type of post and if I get some interest, maybe I'll make into a series. I thought that since I'm always looking for a cheap thrill, I would pick a category, a dollar amount and go with it - finding "cheap chic" things for those of us who really appreciate a small price tag. Today, I'll be focusing on side tables under $35 because I'm currently on the look out for side tables in our bedroom (goodbye lack tables) and the sunroom. All of today's cheap chic are currently on clearance on

I think these nesting tables are adorable, and a little reminiscent of Elieen Gray, no?  The fact that they come as a pair for only $28.00 in black, and $32.00 in white is only icing on the cake.

These little babies remind me of the Hemnes side table that I couldn't get my hands on before it was discontinued (sad face). Good thing Wally World has something comparable. For $25, this little baby in  white or black is so charming! …
