BHG Makeover: DIY Custom Built-In Wall Unit

Hi there friends! You have been asking for a while and today I am sharing the details on how we (Robert + I) designed and built a DIY custom wall unit for the BHG makeover. If you aren’t familiar, I teamed up with Rebuilding Together to give a deserving homeowner (Karen) a FULL room makeover with a feature in the Oct 2017 issue of BHG. This built-in was a true labor of love for my PIC (partner in crime). I remember showing up to his house over a year ago on a cold, fall day with this sketch up of the custom built-in I had in mind. It was a shameful rendering but he got it, right away. I knew then that we would make a great team (and we did). Not one time did Robert say no, I don’t thing so or can’t be done. And let me tell you, we hit a lot of snags and set backs. You can tell by the in progress shots below how we poured our heart and soul into this project. The biggest thank you to Lowe’s!!! For which without their contribution to this project, it would have never happened!

Master Bedroom Window Makeover

Hi there friends! Do you like a good makeover story?! As promised, I am finally sharing my master bedroom window makeover!! I have no words to express how much I LOVE my new natural shades from LEVOLOR!!! These windows were begging for some organic texture and a break from the monotony of the cream. The wheat tones bring the outside in and connects us to the coastal hues right outside our door.

BHG Style Maker Event + What It Means To Me

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Better Homes & Gardens Style Maker event in Brooklyn, NY. This was my 4th time attending, I am always grateful for the opportunity and for the recognition of being a Style Maker. This year the event was at Hotel 1, a picturesque location right next to the Brooklyn Bridge. This hotel was A-MAZING!!! It was a great spot to spend the day learning, networking and catching up with friends.

Woven Lights + A DIY Of My Own Using A Target Find

Happy Friday friends! Do you ever fall head over heals for something and search for ways to bring it into your home (or life) just because you are so enamored by it? I know instantly when I love something but it can take some time before I actually take the plunge. My mind can be everywhere with decorating, I see so many things I adore on a daily basis, that I have to constantly reign myself in. And decide if it’s something I am loving for the moment, just because it’s on trend or if it truly speaks to my style. Otherwise, I know it will eventually go in the donate pile. Target is the one place I have to have total self control, anyone else with me? I walk in with my list and find myself stalking the home décor isles over and over again. The good thing is, if I find something I usually leave, unless it’s small and will go back if I can’t stop thinking about it. I recently did this with a basket, I kept walking past it, thinking I loved the composition but where would I use it. Of course I left (many times) and just yesterday went back after 2 weeks and bought it. I will come right back to this.
