It was time to update my jewelry storage solution again. This will be the third time I've tried to come up with a functional and visually pleasing way to store my jewlery. The first time I had used a wood pallet to store my jewlery. But it wasn't able to store all the jewlery I had so I decided to try another method. The second time I used an old mirror frame and pieces from an old wood pallet that I painted to create a solution. However that didn't work out either. So, I decided to use . . .
I was lucky enough to have a co-worker of mine spot a nasty looking trunk on the curb in front of her apartment and think of me! When she saw it she thought I would enjoy giving it a nice makeover and she was right! The fabric on the outside was pretty nasty and the handles on the front and sides were completely destroyed but the inside was in great shape and it had good bones so all it really needed was some new fabric to bring it back to life! I bought some navy velvet fabric from JoAnn's . . .
For a long time I've struggled finding a solution to my lack of closet in my bedroom. Since it is technically not a bedroom, it doesn't have a closet and there is no extra room to create one. Therefore, I decided to stick with the only other option I thought possible... a free standing wardrobe. The first one I purchased lasted about 2 months. The cheap metal couldn't support the weight of my clothes, especially in the fall & winter with all my heavy sweaters and blazers, and one night just . . .
A while back I bought a metal storage cart from Target, which I used for various things throughout the past year. Now, I decided to use it as a "beauty cart." However, I wasn't totally in love with the boring black color of the cart and decided to give it a little makeover. (p.s. Ikea also sells a similar cart which you cant find here) I should mention, this cart is only $30 and has functioned amazing! The quality is great especially for only $30, but I just wanted something a little more . . .
I'm pretty obsessed with gold in the home, but it's really hard to add gold without making the space look gaudy and tacky. After searching the web I found some beautiful homes where gold accents are added in just the right way!

The white cabinets with the gold hardware and gold faucet is . . .
When my friend asked me to help her build an upholstered headboard for her & her fiancé's new apartment, I said yes, of course! I was super excited to help with this project because I haven't built a headboard from scratch and felt like it would be a great project to tackle! My friend had researched some headboard ideas before starting this project and stumbled upon two different styles she liked. She couldn't decide between the square headboard with buttons Source or the curved . . .
In the living room we had this weird corner nook that really served no purpose and was hard to decorate, so we decided to slip a desk in there and use it as an "office nook." Here's the realtor's listing photo of the corner nook. We used the desk I had painted a while back in the corner and it fit perfectly, but there wasn't much room for storage. We also added the chair I had reupholstered. For storage we added some shelving above the desk. I picked up the shelving and shelf brackets . . .
If you remember, a few months ago I posted a bedroom dresser makeover where I had repainted my bedroom dresser for the 3rd time! Well I wasn't satisfied with the last makeover so I decided to give it another whirl. This time I painted the dresser navy with Behr Blackberry Cobbler I picked up the gold knobs at Home Depot you can buy them in store or online here. . . .
