Make a Manly Trinket Box

Bear and I have been married for 17 years. And over that time the only thing we fight about is how messy the house gets. With my OCD I’d be happiest with everything always put away in its designated place and if nobody ever moved anything ....more

Decorate a Vintage Inspired Lampshade

Every room in my house is chock full of midcentury antiques or midcentury replications. I’m obsessed. From the vintage Fire King Peach Luster plates on my wall to the acid green couches I bought directly from their original owner, I am so deeply in love with this period of design that I couldn’t leave it out of my bedroom ....more

Build a Bedside Bookshelf Table

All my life I’ve had trouble keeping my books corralled. When I was a kid I used to spend the whole summer moving from one spot in the house to another carrying a large cardboard box full of my library books. These days the books are in piles next to every one of my chairs ....more

Make a No Binding Blanket

I am obsessed with snuggly blankets. They are piled on every surface in my home, spread across my lap during every binge watch of the Golden Girls, and fought over with Atti as he tries to claim them for his own. A fuzzy blanket is a prized commodity in my house, which is why I had to make one for my dream bedroom ....more

Make a Mosaic Medicine Box

The timing of this project is just too good to resist. I’m still cranking out tutorials for my big bedroom makeover, and after last weeks big announcement, I knew the next project just had to be this one. After sharing that I’ve been diagnosed with MS I got such overwhelming support and love that I had to hide a little bit ....more

More bad news

This is what my bedside table currently looks like. In my living room there is a coffee table pulled up close to the couch that is similarly littered with lotions and heating pads and a back massager and all the rest of the detritus of the ill. My health is really bad ....more

Blinged Out Rhinestone Pillows

A couple of Christmases ago I got a text from Jared with a picture of a pillow. It was from a designer Orange County boutique super expensive and ridiculously overpriced and his sister fell head over heels in love with it. CAN U MAKE THIS? ...more

Turn old suits into pillow shams

I’m going for elegant masculinity in this room, and there is little that is more elegantly masculine than a suit. I already made the bed pinstriped in honor of it and it looks like a million bucks, eh? But I didn’t want the bedding to be slick and matchy matchy ....more

We got a van!

Meet Bertha. Big Blue Bertha if you’re feeling formal. She is finally, finally, after years of research and agencies and appointments and doctor referrals and funding negotiations and refusals and more meetings and two separate bids and test drives and waiting on forms and waiting on funding and waiting on more forms that weren’t filled out correctly the first time, and so much more waiting and red tape, she is ours ....more
